^I read the Sozin Comet's magazine spoilers online before the finale aired, so I knew it was coming. (Even before Season 3 aired, I wondered how M&B were gonna write up her downfall.)

What this episode and the finale did beautifully was to demonstrate the tragedy of Zuko having to battle Azula. Brother and sister, both still basically children, and they have to lock themselves in what amounts to a fight to the death. No glory or honor here, just something that no father should've ever allowed to happen...but Ozai was never confused for a Daddy of the Year type, anyway.

End of the episode also leaves a pretty good sense of dread in the air, specifically Ozai's "Prepare...to DIE!" before he strikes. Pretty blatant, dude.

^I think in Ozai's mind, Azula exemplified why it shouldn't be the FIRSTBORN who is entitled to the throne; but the most powerful. (They're both second-born. Both Iroh - and Zuko - have realized the strength of their sibling is not to be trifled with.)

Ok. I'm watching the finale again and right after Azula says," I'll show you lightning." She starts bending lightning and I kid you not, it thundered really loud outside on cue. It's super awesome watching the finale during a thunder storm.

Why are you so salty?


« Reply #230 on: Aug 02, 2011 01:28 pm »

Just a bit curious, but I'm wondering where exactly did Ozai and his fleet go to burn the Earth Kingdom? I've been looking at the maps but it seems like it's just some unspecified regions. Tongue

The one thing I don't really care for, and this is a minor thing, is how Aang's airbending is still drawn as being very blue in some shots. It doesn't look right.
Especially this attack.

I have a theory that Azula wasn't just hallucinating but actually saw her mother in the mirror and she disappeared before the camera faded away from Azula. Any thoughts?

Fabulous Agni Kai between Zucko and Azula; I liked this better than Aang's battle.

I must admit WaterDragon, I do tend to agree that it looks too blue, or at least as blue as the waterbending during the battle. But I think with all the red and fire mixed in the shots to show the power of Sozin's Comet, I guess it was bound to affect how the elements were shown.

The Zuko/Azula fight was strangely beautiful. Just wow. More awe inspiring than the Aang/ ozai fight.

It was such an amazing episode. The end was really hard to watch, with Azula breaking down like she did. Although she didn't exactly get a redemption in TSP3, I think that she's gotten better from before, because Aang and Katara both actually have noticed a change in her. So, we'll see. I hope that she gets the redemption that she deserves  Smiley

^ She didn't appear to get any better in the comics. Tongue

Also, could you elaborate on why she deserves a redemption, please?

I agree, I don't understand why Azula deserves anything. Out of all the villains I find her to be the most reprehensible. She's worse than Ozai and Sozin, and is right up there with Azulon as the worst of them all in my opinion. She was the one who initially came up with killing the entire earth kingdom, to win the war -- which is pretty messed up. All for Daddy's approval, atleast Sozin hid around the excuse that it would be better for the world to be under Fire Nation rule, and later regretted his actions on his death bed. Azula didn't care about anything or anyone it seemed by the end. Even that excuse that Mommy didn't love her best, was still quite sickening and didn't do much to elevate her character. She's still disgusting.

Perhaps because she's young and grew up in a very damaging environment. She still has time to change her life. Maybe deserve isn't the right word, but if Zuko and Iroh deserved a chance to redeem themselves, why not Azula?

I think this episode ranks as my favorite episode in all of the Avatar franchise. I get teary almost every time I watch Zuko and Azula's agni kai and when Zuko sacrifices himself to save Katara. The Track Team really outdid itself in composing the music for these scenes. Just listening to the music almost makes me cry!

I like Aang and Ozai's scenes too, but Zuko/Azula/Katara's takes the icing on the cake for me.

What can I say about this episode other than it was stunning. It had great fights, great animation, great music, and great emotional interactions. I loved seeing Azula's breakdown. It is something I have waited for since we first saw her in action. Her argument with Ursa in the mirror is definitely one of my favorite moments in the show. Moving on, the Agni Kai between her and Zuko was amazing. This is what the Tonraq/Unalaq battle should have looked like. It was the perfect end to a tragic struggle. Though the slow motion with Zuko was super cheesy. Anyway, I liked Sokka coming up with the plan to take out the fleet. Though I thought Jack Desenna's delivery at some points was a little distracting. As for the Ozai and Aang battle, like many people have already commented, the fight seemed too one-sided at any given point, but for what it was worth, I think it was a satisfactory battle for the series' end.

I am saddened that we didn't get to see an epic large-scale battle with the White Lotus though. Why did they bother showing them in the first place?

It was the easiest way to write Iroh into the finale while also explaining where he had been since he broke himself out of jail.

I get that, but I still think it was pointless. I am not docking down any points because of that, but I would have liked it if they found something else for the White Lotus to do. They were liberating a city that was slated for destruction. Once Sokka took out the fleet, the Earth Kingdom was pretty much safe.

It provided plot convenience and gave Iroh something to do. That was the point. So, not pointless, just a poor attempt to keep Iroh and the Order relevant. But it was nice to see Piandao again so I'm okay with it. <3
