Long Episode Description From Nick.com: Aang's need for a teacher becomes evident when he is recruited to help rid a town of a monster from the spirit world - a perfect job for the Avatar, which Aang has no idea how to perform. When the spirit monster arrives, Aang not only fails to appease it but it kidnaps Sokka. Aang returns to the village, only to find that no one can see or hear him - he has stumbled into the spirit world! In the spirit world, Aang is contacted by a dragon and finds out what his next mission will be, to contact the previous Avatar (Avatar Roku), who has extremely important information for him. The only problem is, to contact Avatar Roku, Aang must get to a temple in the Fire Nation before the end of the winter solstice, in a couple of days. Aang eventually makes it out of the spirit world, and with the experience he has gained, he is able to make peace between the village and the spirit monster. The town is saved and Sokka returns. But the group faces another challenge...

This episode, and it's second half, are the only ones I have never seen.  I want to see them really bad.  I heard Iroh gets nabbed by a bunch of earthbenders!  What is that about?

You have to see this one, Zukofan, it has the funniest moment between Iroh and Zuko  Shocked (which I better not spoil for you).
Having just re-watched Princess Mononoke I was struck by the similsrity between the movie and this episode. Both feature an animal spirit/god who goes on a destructive rampage after humans destroyed its forest.

*watches eppisode (finally) and nearly dies laughing*
LOL!!! Omg that was soooo funny...with the hot springs...
Zuko: "Get out of the water!"
Iroh: "Very well..."
Zuko: Shocked *cringes/holds up hand and looks away* "...ONNN second thought, why don't you take another few minutes...?"

And then when Zuko tentitavely sniffs the sandal...
"GUGH!!!...yup, that's uncle Iroh..."  >_<

And then after the fight with the earthbenders...
Zuko: "...now would you PLEASE put on some CLOTHES?"

Oh, man...so funny...and I must say I am very proud of Zuko for doing the right thing and going after his uncle instead of chasing the avatar (which of course only happened to be Katara flying Appa...)

I'm afraid I once again found Zuko's side of the story much more interesting than Aang's, though I did love Sokka's "Yeah... ... we're all gonna get eaten by a spirit monster."

I enjoyed this episode for OTHER reasons than most.  Iroh hadn't until this episode done anything to prove what a brilliant strategist he is, which is nice.  However, the one thing that highlighted this episode was Iroh seeing Spirit Aang on the dragon fly past.  And only he saw it, which hits you in the head with the fact that he isn't just some goofy uncle figure.  Which is solidified later on when it is revealed that Iroh had gone to the spirit world.  I have to wonder if that will ever be touched upon again . . .

I'm sure this question has been asked and/or answered before, but how was Iroh able to see Aang while he was in spirit form? Huh

After Iroh was captured by the earthbenders, he sees Aang flying Roku's dragon overhead, and gasps. It seems he's the only human character that has the ability. Was this ever explained during Season 1? If so, I was clearly not paying attention.  Embarrassed

I'm in Jersey, so I guess I don't really have an excuse other than not paying attention Smiley

I do recall Iroh being very knowledgable of the spirit world and its inhabitants, but I didn't know he was actually there. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I rated it a 9, but I should've rated it a 10. Tongue This was an awesome part of an awesome 2 - part- episode. I loved it. It was really exciting and made me go EEEE!!!! and the ending was great too. Shiou (sp?) should;ve gone with them.

Uh well... My opinion about this story is devided.
I didn't like the Aang-part of the story. I don't know. I mean, Sokka was funny as always, but Aang and the monster... I can't explain why, I just didn't like it that much.
The Iroh/Zuko-part was excellent. I just read an old thread where there is said that Zuko treats Iroh unfair and should respect him more. I think this episode shows clearly how much Iroh means to Zuko.
And I loved the scene when the earthbenders were going to smash Iroh's hands and Zuko finally safed him. And during the following fight they both worked together so perfectly - what can show better how close they are?
And TimKai is very right with Iroh being a "brilliant strategist". IMO it's a bit a pity that Iroh mostly is presented as an odd old man in the stories, though he is probably one of the most powerful and most clever characters of "Avatar". He deserved that episode.
Well, and the bath scene... Grin No need to talk about this, yeah? One of the best scenes existing!
BTW: has anyone noticed that Zuko once acted like Iroh in that episode? At the end: The fight is over, the earth benders are defeated, lying on the ground, Iroh just safed from evisceration. Zuko: "Now please put on some clothes."
^^ In my opinion this is like typical Iroh-acting. Perhaps Zuko will become similar to Iroh when he gets more patient and level-headed?

Love,
Kari

You know what I find the most interesting part of this episode? That Sokka went into the Spirit World. I really wish he would try to go back, perhaps to see Yue. It would be so very awesome to see an episode where that happens.

...otherwise, I must say this episode didn't do much for me Tongue The Gaang's half of the story I didn't particularly enjoy, but I did like Zuko and Iroh's... Overall- 7/10

He went to the Spirit World? Hmm, I was under the impression that he was just hidden by Hei Bai somewhere.

Could this mean that Iroh went into the Spirit World the same way Sokka did?

I loved watching Iroh fight with the chains on his wrists. It reminded me of some action movie, it just looked so cool!

So, Roku's dragon. Loved its looks, hated its name! Fang?! Come on!

My favorite part of this episode is when Iroh and Zuko take on all those earthbenders.

A loose quote: "Surrender, you're clearly outnumbered."

Iroh, "True, but you are clearly outmatched."

And then a great fight scene occurs. This alone made it a 10 for me.

I liked the plot of this episode, and the opening scene was classic (XD), but the animation in this episode was really bugging me. They must have animated it at a different studio or something, because a lot of the characters look different than in other episodes. Particularly Aang's eyes; they look shinier than usual.

My favourite moment in this episode was when Aang found out that Hei Bei was the Spirit of the forest and when he gave him the acorn... That was sooo.. touching. I nearly cried at this point. Which is not typical of me at all.

And of course, the story of Iroh and Zuko was unforgettable Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy.  And I liked it when Zuko said: "You taught me well." Suddenly you realise that Iroh indeed has done for Zuko far more that his own father has.

(Short modification). I rewatched this episode a few days ago - and here's something I have never noticed before. That was really funny:Smiley)))

Sokka: Hei-Bai! Over here!
(He lets loose the boomerang. Switch to a view of the creature from behind. The boomerang rotates into view, hits the creature's butt, and bounces off with a sound effect indicating its harmless impact. It falls on the ground. Cut back to Sokka, who runs up to Aang.)

That is a really interesting idea.  I mean, he pretended to be the Avatar to impress a girl (Nick comic), so why not try going to the spirit world to see Yue?  The gaang has run into that panda more than once...
