Viewers of Nickelodeon’s acclaimed anime series The Legend of Korra have long claimed lead character Korra and her best friend, Asami, were more than just friendly.
And in show’s two-part series finale on Thursday, they got their proof: After the big threat is dealt with, the series closes with Korra and Asami walking off into the spirit world hand-in-hand.
Korra and Asami both dated the same man, but there have been hints about a growing attraction all season: After being gone for two years, Korra writes letters back home—but only to Asami.
“Please don’t tell Mako and Bolin I wrote to you and not them,” she writes. “I don’t want to hurt their feelings, it’s easier to tell you about this stuff.”
There were also female-bonding moments, like when Asami tended to Korra after a fight, and when Asami was helping Korra learn to drive.
Even Janet Varney, who voices Korra, revealed to fans that she rooted for the ladies as a couple.
