The Legend of Korra season finale took place on Friday of last week, and it had everyone talking. The ending had Korra and her friend Asami holding hands while going into the Spirit World; then they stopped to look into each other's eyes for a moment.
The whole situation gave critics the impression that both characters have transformed their friendship into a same-sex relationship. Others thought it was just a friendly gesture by both while some believed the showrunners chose to push an agenda since Korra and Asami never showed an intention of moving forward with their relationship before.
However, the creators of The Legend of Korra came out to give their official take on what happened between the two women at the end of the episode. As it stands right now, officially, Korra and Asami are indeed in a same-sex relationship.
Co-creator of the show, Bryan Konietzko, confirmed that "Korrasami is canon."
"You can celebrate it, embrace it, accept it, get over it, or whatever you feel the need to do, but there is no denying it. That is the official story. We received some wonderful press in the wake of the series finale at the end of last week, and just about every piece I read got it right: Korra and Asami fell in love. Were they friends? Yes, and they still are, but they also grew to have romantic feelings for each other."
Konietzko went on to add that the same-sex relationship plan for Korra and Asami was in the works for quite some time. The team had to be overt in how things were done in the show because Nickelodeon demanded it. They were hints as to what was going to take place, but because these hints were so small; many viewers never saw it coming.
At the end of the day, there's not much folks can do. Viewers can either hate Korra for being in a same-sex relationship or like her just the same.
In my personal opinion, the relationship was evident since the third season, and more so in the early sections of the 4th season when viewers found out that Korra was writing Asami while she was away for three years, but never once wrote to her other friends.
