[Sokka dramatically pulls his sword out and wails in an attempt to be scary. Aang, Katara, and Toph are unimpressed]

What's wrong with you people?

I usually don't look at how an episode of this show is rated so that it wouldn't influence my rating and my overall enjoyment of the episode. Having said that this episode was the clear example why Avatar: The Last Airbender is so hugely overrated. This episode is absolute filler with nothing having to do with the general story and it's sad to see that at this point in the show halfway through season 3 they still had time to make filler episodes. As I was watching it the only thing I saw was just some old lady manipulating Katara and a plot that just pulled things about this old lady out of thin air in order to make the episode look like it was meticulously planned from the beginning or that she had a plan from the beginning. I was astonished to later see that this episode got an enormous rating of 9 here. For what? Filler? Or for stupid made up on the way type of plot? This has to be one of the most overrated episodes from Avatar with the now for me infamous "The Crossroads of Destiny", "The Tales of Ba Sing Se" and probably the worst of them "The Blind Bandit". That's not to say that I didn't found enjoyment in this episode especially in the new bloodbending power introduced and Katara's struggle, but aside from that this episode is just filler trash.
