'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

Zuko tells the healer that Iroh's name is "Mushi" which causes Iroh to glare at him because "mushi" translates to "insect" - not a very manly name. See more »


When Uncle Iroh and Zuko are fugitives they go to a house where a mother and her daughter live and they treat Zuko and Iroh with hospitality. 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 »

Easily one of the most iconic episodes. Can't go wrong with the secret tunnel song.
