Avatar Roku: [in a dream to Aang] Aang, it's time you learned my history with Fire Lord Sozin. You need to understand how the war began if you want to know how to end it. Meet me on my home island on the day of the Summer Solstice.
Aang: [talking in his sleep] Okay, Roku.

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.
