Korra should have had to work to restore her bending (and others), not have it given back straight away. The sudden airbending after getting de-powered seemed odd. I'd have preferred to see the lieutenant allow them to escape while keeping Amon busy instead. Tarlok is quite self centered and selfish, I really don't see him committing suicide so it seemed out of character. He may have been able to convince Amon to restore his bending so he had a reason to not give up right off the bat.
It was entertaining but there were big flaws in the execution of the finale.
The airbending wasn't totally sudden as she had been training for it. It sort of makes a kind of sense that it would be easier for her to access it when A: She's totally desperate, and B: With her other powers silenced it was easier for her to "listen" to the part of her that's an airbender.

Tarlok's blowing up that boat was awesome, though. Since Tarlok was portrayed somewhat positively before that, at first I thought that he did that because his brother was too dangerous for the world, but the more I think about it, the more it looks like plain vengeance.
Yes it was awesome and I'm glad they didn't cop out with a maybedeath.
Regarding the scars, I thought that Amon had used his bloodbending on himself to fake them and that a few minutes later we would see him use it again to erase them in private.
