Katara:[while trapped with Zuko in a crystal cave] Why did they throw you in here? Oh wait. Let me guess. It's a trap. So when Aang shows up to rescue me, you can finally have him in your little Fire Nation clutches
[no answer]
Katara:You're a terrible person, you know that? Always following us, hunting the Avatar, trying to capture the world's last hope for peace! But what do you care? You're the Fire Lord's son. Spreading war and violence and hatred is in your blood.
Prince Zuko:You don't know what you're talking about.
Katara:I don't? How dare you! You have no idea what this war has put me through. Me personally. The Fire Nation took my mother away from me

A great end to season 2, 25 January 2007
Author: squirrelhunter17 from Sarasota, Florida

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Here we have an ending with a perfect cliffhanger.

Zuko, like many who feel strong in their convictions, turned on his Uncle in favor of his own pride. He also destroyed any chances of ZuTara ever happening (thank your respective gods for that one) Katara, Instead of healing Zuko and possibly keeping him from chasing the gang anymore, she saw Aang and got excited. Again, destroying the chance of ZuTara happening.

Aang, learned how to control the avatar state, possibly at the expense of his love for Katara. Did he lose her, does she love him, who knows, season 3 holds the answers.

Iroh is imprisoned, and aside from him, only Master Jong would be able to teach Aang firebending.

Suki and the Kiyoshi Warriors could quite possibly be dead.

Sokka has to find Suki.

And the Earth Kingdom is gone, leaving only one nation around to support Aang and the rest.

At the end of season 2, we've come to the high point in the series, from here, its all thick plot line. From here, everything is different.
