Day Of The Colossus & The Last Stand. In the series finale of Legend Of Korra, everyone gets their moment to shine.
So I watched it.
And I loved it. Honestly, even putting aside the last scene, this was such an exciting finale and nearly everyone got a moment of their own to shine. There was a great Mako and Bolin brother moment two brother characters not even hesitating in saying they love each other and pulling each other into a hug — awesome and Mako once again solidifying his friendship with Korra, showing that exes can still care about each other deeply even when the relationship ends.
Then we get to the Asami and Korra talk at the wedding, which leads to them leaving hand in hand into the spirit world. I could go over Korra only writing to Asami over those years away or their development as a kick-butt duo throughout season three.
But just consider this: You know, that scene where Aang and Katara finally get together. The only difference is that Aang and Katara kiss.
Even just a little bit more to take away the naysayers. Now, I absolutely do not see this as Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino queer baiting their audience in the last few seconds of the show.

Korra and Asami walk into the spirit portal hand in hand, then turn to face each other and clasp both hands. The final shot of the series is Korra and Asami heading to the Spirit World on a vacation, holding hands and gazing into each other's eyes. It's about as blatant as a kid's show could possibly be.
I Owe You My Life: Kuvira says that she owes the Avatar her life after she surrenders and indeed, Korra had saved her twice. The last scene of the episode and the series takes obvious visual and musical inspiration from the final episode of Avatar: After the Colossus is totaled, Kuvira retreats into the Spirit Wilds and tries to kill Korra with the detached spirit vine cannon.

Since the cannon is useless now anyway, it's effective in getting the two out and keeping them from causing more damage. Korra expresses this sentiment to Tenzin, believing her long recovery has made her more compassionate. Kuvira tries to insist that none of the destruction would have happened if Republic City had just quietly surrendered.
Korra quickly turns down that logic. Averted by Kuvira, who explicitly asks if she and Korra are dead when they wake up in the Spirit World.
