'The Cave of Two Lovers' is where we first see definite signs of the true nature of the growing love relationship between the main characters Avatar Aang and the water bending master Katara. Sokka is bombarded by a group of free-thinking hippie musical nomads during most of the episode as well making for many humorous moments of head-smacking good fun. Uncle Iroh and Prince Zuko learn about life on the run from the Fire Nation and how not to brew 'White Jade Lily' as a tea ever again. The history of how the Earth city of Omashu came into being is provided as well as a surprise ending about city's current state of being under the hand of the Fire Nation. Written by lisamarie31468

At the end the mother is giving Iroh a basket of food, if you view it carefully when Iroh takes the basket, it is left floating in the air for a second. See more »


Sokka: Chong, how long do those torches last?
Chong: Eh, about two hours each.
Lily: And we have five torches so that's...
[she takes the other four torches she is holding a strikes then on the ground like matches, lighting them instantly]
Lily: ten hours.
Sokka: [while grabbing and stomping out the torches she lit] It doesn't work like that if they're all lit at the same time!

A true love story
20 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of my favorites in the whole series, basically because Aang and Katara travel alone through "The Cave of Two Lovers" and we see their relationships being revealed. I love the part where they both kiss and the cave lights up a path towards the exit. In the meantime Sokka travels with a bunch of hippie-like nomads who he gets annoyed by, since they always sing and who aren't very smart.

Also this episode is like a reference to William Shakespears "Romeo & Juliet". Since this episode tells a story about two lovers who meet each other and both fall in love. One problem for the couple is that the two villages each one is from both hate each other which makes the relationship between the lovers very complicated.

I hate to spoil the rest so I will leave it at that. But this is a sweet and funny Avatar episode which should be known as "A True Love Story." 5 stars!
