Aang, Katara, Sokka and Toph escape the library to face the desert without the benefit of Aang's flying bison, Appa. The group knows they must get the information they obtained from the library about the upcoming solar eclipse to Earth Kingdom capital of Ba Sing Se, as it could very well make the difference in the ongoing war with the Fire Nation. Aang, who has always felt somewhat isolated by the realization that he is indeed the last Airbender, considers Appa and Momo his only connections to his previous 100-year ago world. When Appa is stolen by Sandbenders, Aang is visibly devastated and without direction or hope. Katara really shines in this episode as she must deal with Aang's despair, Sokka's cactus-induced hallucinations and Toph's lack of support or good ideas to solve their dilemma as she too feels they are just trapped in a 'giant bowl of sand pudding.' The highlight of this episode is when Aang finally confronts the Sandbenders who Toph recognizes as those who stole Appa. ... Written by lisamarie31468

"I never thought I would miss the taste of mud" (dialog TOPH)
17 February 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

What an amazing series. I am binge watching for the second time. I can't believe how good it is. And I cannot believe how the people behind this production did Korra, which pales in comparison. (Nor can I believe the money wasted on the film version in 2010).

This perfect episode not only has amazing dialog ("miss the taste of mud", "sand pudding" -- best lines go to Toph) but also the "lesson" of using friends to help you.

The most remarkable scene is where Aang goes ballistic at the loss of Appa and only Katara has the nerve to approach him and calm him down. This scene is every bit as powerful as the scenes in the live action Hulk movies where Hulk goes nuts and only Betty can approach him.

Again, this is one of the best series in the history of TV.
