The Serpent's Pass: Aang and his friends are prevented from taking the easy route into Ba Sing Se while escorting a family of refugees and are faced with the challenge of making their way through the deadly Serpent's Pass.

The Drill: Aang discovers a secret Fire Nation invention heading straight for Ba Sing Se and must stop it before it destroys the great wall that protects the city from invasion.

That was freaking AMAZING. I think I liked the first part of it better, but still...woah. Just wooaaah.

Sokka had some hilarious lines, and I love Toph's little infatuation or w/e with him. I'm glad that we saw the return of Ozai's Angels, too.

Lines

"You were right Azula, it was the Avatar! And friends. -suggestive eyes-"
"Heey. 8D"

"Sokka, you saved me! -smooch-"
"Actually, it's me."
"Oh...you can just let me drown now."

"It's really dark in here, I can't see a thing!"
"Wow, what a NIGHTMARE!"
"Oh, sorry."

-hand to head- "I'm going to forget I ever saw that."

Oh, and I loved the return of Jet..Smellerbee's a girl? o: And I love how they answer to Longshot like he's saying something. xD

And yesss, next episode we see them in their fancy uniforms!!

More later when I can think and type straight. xD

-later-

Random Things to Point Out
- Circus Freak? That was a -little- harsh, Katara. D:
- Ty Lee is a ditz. But she's cool. "-wide eyes- Poof."
-Azula fighting Aang...fsdhjk. So. Amazingly. Awesome.
-Ha, Toph got in 'cause she's a Bei Fong. Smoooth. xD
-Didn't Zuko notice that the couple was the same couple that he almost stole from? o_o
-Yay for Jet. Even though he sucks, he's awesome.
-Suki looked better without her makeup than I had thought. In that one pic they showed in the spoilerific review, she looked....odd.
-Crying over tea? Once again, smoooth. xD
-That one War Admiral or w/e is gonna get it...-shudders-
-I wish there was more Mai. Dx But still, at least we saw the three girls.
-Ba Sing Se is huuuge. O_O The monorail rocked, though.
-Katara surfing = ftw.
-IrohxTicket Lady forever! xD

....that's all for now, folks. <3

This episode was awesome!! I went to a neighbour's house to watch it since she has satellite, and I must say, this is my favorite episode EVER!
I can't believe Aang beat Azula, though.

Curse you Aang! Azula shall be avenged!


Oh, and Iroh crying about spilled tea was so funny! Grin

high points(didn't write down dialogue, so I'm guessing here):

Toph:"Thanks for saving me Toph. That's all right Sokka, I was glad to save you."

Sokka:"It's so dark in here, I can't see a thing."
Toph:"Oh really?"
Sokka:"Sorry"

Firebending the tea and Iroh sweettalking the guard into letting them in.

A little disappointed that we didn't get to see anything with the plot threads that were already ongoing, and that it was a subcontained plot, but still an amazing episode. Also loved the fact that all the BoomerAangs (love it Sokka!) got to show off and had screen time.

I think they also were trying to shoot down Taang covertly, what with all the Toph + Sokka moments, which doesn't make me happy 'cause Sokka already has Suki (and he still thinks about Yue) - no love for Toph!

These two episodes were worth the wait, Sokka had a lot of good moments for once instead of being the blunt end of the stick like he usually is.
Both Sokka, Ty Lee and Toph had a lot of wonderful moments.
But the return of the cabbage man beat all of em Tongue

Yeah i can't beleive that smellerbee is a girl. I loved it when aang ran really fast and just in time he destroys the drill. The return of Jet was really cool too. I can't wait for the next episode... yeah they are in fancy uniforms! Awsome Movie!

JET WAS AWESOME. Smellerbee and Longshot(New cartoon crush? I think so.) were amazing as well. I think I love that crew now. Zuko was so different, his development is speedy but fun! Ty Lee, of course, was RAWSOME. Mai had that nice line at the end and it made me laugh so props to her. Sokka had some funny lines, and Suki was a hottie. Tophs part is obviously getting bigger roles, I really liked that. The episodes went by so fast! That was so amazing! Man, I'm watching all the replays! Woooo! Grin

Im kinda wiggin out right now. MAN that was nice to see after such a long lack of Avatar. Eeeeeee!

But I'll also admit that as spazzy as I am right now, it doesn't fall under my favorites. Better than Fury of Aang by a long shot though!

Ok so now we stand with a interesting foreshadows... I dont know what Zuko said exactly but hes talking with Jet and Zuko says I have realized that traveling alone is not the best way or something like that but this tells us that Zuko might be joining The Avatar group in the time to come.  

Azula had some kickass moves!!! dam* she's Cool.  I think that when Azula appears again that it is going to be a duel between her and ZuZu. Cheesy

O yea for all that do have Nick2, its going to show tonight at 9:00 so im watching it again Smiley

I squealed like a school girl.  Swear to god.  I completely flipped out at the entire scene with Katara at the beginning.  Oh god.  ::trembles::
I'm glad that no one was around ::holds head::

Yeah i can't beleive that smellerbee is a girl.

You know, I don't understand the confusion (not singling out Aangonator, they were just the first one I could quote).  I got that Smellerbee was a girl in "Jet".

...

Did anyone notice the possible sexual symbolism of the actually drill itself? Or maybe I'm just imagining things... Undecided

you're imagining things.  I mean, yea, it was phallic.  But, uhh . . . yea.
::revised statement::  Okay, the "goo" thing kinda tipped the scales a little.  But it wasn't 'expanding', so much as it was moving like a catarpillar.

What rocked the most (no pun intended):
- "How about the Aang Gang?" I was waiting for "Fantastic Four" next.
- Sokka/Suki make-out! Animation Insider didn't lie. How did the writers/animators legally get away with that?
- Toph having a crush on Sokka (I think the writers have been spying on us at fanfiction.net)
- Zuko's skills during the heist, as impressive as ever
- Katara and Aang taking down the serpent- officially my favorite fight scene of the series WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH that was cool
- Momo saving Aang, nice touch
- The speed; not rushed but didn't waste any time as shows are HIGHLY prone to do to you. The plot got going right away and never stalled. Got right to the action, conflict, and emotion.

I knew once i saw the (cold)tea that Iroh was about to blow their cover.LOL
I liked: The developement of the characters' relationship with each other.

Aangs' fight with Azula and his using all his bending abilities to show he has/is becoming better at using them.

And a lot of other stuff that i can't remember....would have liked to see more Zuko and Iroh though. Those two crack me up.

Most interesting/speculative thing for me: Aang handed Azula what could possibly be her first ever loss. Being the perfectionist she is(and knowing how her superiority complex feeds her ego) it will be interesting to see what this does to her psyche and if she now becomes obsessed taking aang down.

From start to finish....Brilliant! My new favorite director is Giancarlo! This movie finally united the team and showed us that Aang is well on his way to becoming a powerful Avatar.

The Serpent's Pass was exciting and emotional. Their journey up until this point had been so trying at times. Each one of them had some sort of inner conflict that needed to be resolved.

The Drill was a monster of a machine. I actually admired it even though it was creeping towards Ba Sing Se. I loved how the gAang used Ty Lee as their inspiration! The battle on top of the Drill was fantastic! Aang thought like a mad genius! His rock hand would make Bumi proud! I want a rock hand! The icing on the cake for me was at the end when Sokka suggested they call the gAang Team Boomerang because it already had the word "Aang" in it! He made a pun! I was most amused Smiley

Nothing illegal about making out.  I think Sokka and Suki are considered adults in that society anyway (unsure, of course).
