It's a wonderful, wonderful world

I must say that I really don't get most titles this season, but this one is a really good find. As it indicates, the episode builds up towards the major change that the Avatars want to bring about. The sisters are now more or less convinced, even though Paige is still held back by her loyalty to Kyle, who won't hear about it.

The most interesting part about this episode is how it maintains some confusion about who's right and who's wrong. The Avatars seem just too good to be true, and knowing that they had previously enlisted Cole is not to their credit either. But throughout the episode, they seem honest and open, while the Elders seem bent on being as hateful as possible, for all that they have a valid argument. As for Kyle, his decision to side with Zankou looks like sheer bad will, and even the final scene during which he is killed does not really make us pity him. By the end of the episode, the change is complete, and for now everything seems as perfect as advertised. The long scenes in which we see the whole world go to sleep, then wake up in a cheerful, peaceful mood is really well done, especially since it will have its counterpart in the sequel of the episode. Obviously, this makes it worth a re-watch *after* we know what follows.

My main disappointment in this episode is that we basically spend most of it waiting for the world change to take place, so everything that happens for most of the episode feels like a time-filler.
