I just got an overwhelming amount of feels.
He wanted Korra to be safe.
That’s why he gave her his scarf.
I don’t think she took it from him, because she’s brash, but she’s not rude about it when she knows better. And I think she knew better.
And so he gave it to her.
…. That’s actually a very smart observation. Very sweet of him, too
