When Korra asked why she didn t, Asami told her that she was worried that if she didn t feel the same that she would never return. However, after receiving a heartfelt apology and noticing how much he was suffering from his own guilt, she was willing to at least try to give him another chance dating instructors. Asami was the only one out of Team Avatar who received replies to her letters and the one in whom Korra confided about her situation. Some time later, Asami traveled to the Republic City prison after receiving several letters from Hiroshi, none of which she had opened dating instructors. Upon arrival in the city, the group went straight to the Earth Kingdom Royal Palace, where they were greeted by Grand SecretariatGun. Asami played the game slowly and with strategy as per her beliefs, confusing Bolin, who thought the game was fast-paced and one of chance. The dragon bird spirit then approached the two and they rode off; Korra said that she wasn t ready for their vacation to end yet, and when Asami asked where the two were going, Korra said it was a surprise. Reconciling their differences, Asami, Mako, and Korra shared a hug, while keeping Prince Wu at a distance.
Their brewing argument was interrupted and the subject was changed when Prince Wu announced he needed to go to the bathroom. The girls, Ikki, and Meelo were helped up the stairs when Lin used a slab of rock to elevate them. Asami and Korra made their way to a tavern, where they found Tonraq, Lin, and Lord Zuko. Her prowess was great enough to easily disarm the Equalists Lieutenant and knock him out with his own weapon,  and she was similarly able to evade attacks from five chi blockers before using an electrified glove to stun them. She suggested the construction of a makeshift sand-sailer with the remnant metal, needing a sail and a sled. Wonyong said that the group was still trespassing and he would force them to leave; Korra responded by entering the Avatar state and demanding Wonyong leave, which he proceeded to do. While floating away to safety with her parachute, Asami watched in horror as her father was crushed to death as he finished cutting the hole. When the young airbender awoke, Asami immediately inquired about the safety of her friends and was relieved to hear that Korra had saved the world.
Asami said she understood their position, however, as she d been initially reluctant to talk to Korra s parents as well. Asami listened as Suyin explained she had only said what she did to please Lin and instead bought the team time to begin their search. Promising to look out for each other, Asami and Korra entered the spirit portal.. Asami joined the siblings and Lin in hiding behind metal floor decor. When Ghazan came out to lead the way, she and Bolin looked at each other confusedly and eyed him suspiciously, but followed nonetheless. Asami hugged Bolin tightly while she was slightly lifted off her feet. Her caring nature was still prevalent, even after her break up with Mako, as she wished him well before he embarked on a dangerous mission. Later, after Korra was given orders by Earth QueenHou-Ting to retrieve tax payments, Asami went with the Avatar to the town they were held in.
