So I just watched Mask of Life in full for the first time. I still can’t figure out why Tahu and Gali are “still so ill at ease.” The story right before MoL had Tahu and Gali working together to defeat the Bohrok-Kal, with Tahu admitting that Gali was right all along. Sure they seem a little frustrated with each other in Tales of the Masks (the book before MoL) but that takes place before the end of Makuta’s Revenge. Is there any canon explanation for why they are mad at each other?
I know that the meta-canon explanation is that they probably wanted to show the Toa being not fully united in the beginning of the movie, and thanks to the setup of the tournament they only had Tahu, Gali, and Pohatu to work with for this scene. And they were definitely not going to show Pohatu being unfriendly!
