Each year on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousands of lanterns into the sky in hope that one day - their lost Princess would return.
Jason: The first time I worked with Dobby, I said, “Where’s Dobby gonna be? Where should I look?” They went, “Well, wherever you look, that’s where we’ll put him.” So we’re up on a little platform for me to walk down and I would swing my leg viciously and as I went down the steps, I went … with the cane like that.
So Chris goes, “Cut. Okay, great. You slip or something?” And I went, “No, no, no. No, I just kicked Dobby down the stairs.” And he went, “Really?” He said, “What was the thing with the cane?” I said, “When he tried to get up, I bashed him on the head.” He went, “Cool.”
When he tried to get up, I bashed him on the head.

Autoimmune Disease Acts Like Demonic Possession
Susannah Cahalan started feeling a bit off. Numbness on one side of the body, losing sleep, crying hysterically one minute and laughing the next. She went to get MRIs but they showed nothing. Things were getting a bit more strange.
Her boyfriend told her how at one point while they were watching a show together she started grinding her teeth, moaning, and biting her tongue until she finally passed out. He took her to the hospital and they found out it was a seizure. Her first of many. Things got worse.
She stopped eating, became paranoid and delusional, had more seizures in which blood would spurt out of her mouth. She was hospitalized (one nurse recalls that in the middle of the night while she was getting blood, Susannah sat up straigh and slapped her). Numerous tests were done and the doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong.
That is until Dr. Souhel Najjar came into the picture. He asked her to draw a clock. When she showed him what she had drawn he knew exactly what was wrong with her. All the numbers were written on the right side of the clock face, and no numbers were on the left side.
She had anti-NMDAR encephalitis. The receptors in the frontal lobe, responsible for cognitive reasoning, and the limbic system, or the emotional center of the brain, are under assault by the immune system. In other words, her body was attacking her brain. Nearly 90% of people that suffer from this go undiagnosed and it is more common in women.
Oh, and she wrote a book about it called
Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness
I cannot begin to express how appreciative I am of what the Legend of Korra is doing in terms of addressing mental health. These last two episodes have blown me away. The writers have managed to craft a story with true depth and a sort of realism that’s so rare. I can honestly say I have never watched a show where the protagonist’s mental illness and/or struggles were treated with such respect and honesty.
I know I already wrote about this, but the latest episode (The Coronation) really sealed my impression with the inclusion of Korra’s scenes with Toph. Toph’s tough love approach was definitely what we all expected from her, but it was also something else. It was a perspective that is almost NEVER portrayed accurately - the really sucky, toxic, and sometimes near addictive aspects of mental illness.
When Toph accused Korra of not letting her remove the poison, I instantly thought back to my own experience with depression. At my darkest point, it was really hard to think about getting better. I couldn’t picture it, and honestly at times it felt easier to stay depressed. If I was always so tired and had a hard time even getting out of bed, then why even bother trying to get better? Being sad was hard, but putting effort into not being sad was even harder.
It was a vicious cycle that I’ve never been able to fully explain, but the fact that this show even metaphorically implied it is groundbreaking. (Of course, I only speak for myself and my personal experience, so do understand that I’m not trying to be spokesperson or anything).
Can you imagine if other shows were inspired to take the perils of mental illness head-on? So many more people would understand, or feel comforted. I’m just grateful that LOK is doing what it’s doing.
