Did You Know?


At one point Katara wonders whether they have bathrooms in the spirit world, to which Sokka replies: "As a matter of fact, they do not". This is a reference to episode 7 ("Winter Solstice, Part 1"), in which Sokka spent a day in the spirit world, and when he returned, all he could think of was getting to the bathroom. See more »


When Zuko is seen rising from his bed, he is semitransparent. See more »


Aang: That's amazing! I can't believe you were friends with Monk Gyatso just like I was.
Avatar Roku: Some friendships are so strong, they can even transcend lifetimes.

Best Episode so far?
28 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this may be the best episode of the new season... if only for the end exchange behind Zuko and Iroh. Oh my God, Zuko's great grandfather is Avatar Roku, Zuko seemed so pained to find this out and I must admit I did not see that one coming. This makes me 20x more excited about future episodes. (I thought that The Beach was a great episode, but this one takes the cake) The Fire Nation always had interested me the most, and I would really love to know what happened Ursa (Zuko's mother) hopefully his ties to Avatar Roku, Ursa's grandfather, will shed some light on this (fingers crossed). If there was an avatar top 10 episodes list, this deserves to be on it.
