I'm still not sold on Asami, she could be in on in it with her father and Amon, portray her as innocent, surprise her with the news her father works with Amon, make it appear she chose the good guys only to be the eyes and ears of Amon on the inside with the group..
The more I think about Amon's character the more I think Amon could be a bender himself. Working with Sato, you had the platnium walls in the underground factory, maybe Amon told him to build it that way. He probably knows everything about bending from experience..Maybe he's trying to get rid of them all so he can be the only one in the near future to rule the world..
It is possible that Asami is a mole. Just because Amon can take Korra down at any time, doesn't mean he won't want to keep an eye on her at all times. Despite his ability to take bending (still not fully convinced its permanent) Korra is the avatar. She is still a threat, and one that could at any time grow in power. Personally I just hope they balance Asami out as quickly as possible. I just can't connect with her character, too many strengths, no weaknesses that last...
As for Amon, I don't think he is a bender. You don't need to be a bender yourself just to know how to stop one. Perhaps Amon is just experienced fighting benders, perhaps he has benders working for him that told him these weaknesses. Or maybe Sato came up with the idea himself, him being an intelligent character that works with metal for a living after all.
