I loved this. There is no other word. But then again, I'm a huge Zuko fangirl.

But even if you're not a huge Zuko lover, you can't help but at least like this episode. The whole Zuko-betrays-Fire Nation thing was just too cool. Not to mention how awesome his "assassin" (though he didn't kill anyone) persona was.

^Ditto. (Well, it might have tied with the Storm...) I liked this because it showed Zuko in a different light; desperate.

Another one of my favorites! (I just like commenting on my favorite episodes, don't I?) I'm probably slow, because I didn't realize who the Blue Spirit until after his mask fell off. ^_^;; Although I like Zuko, I have this nagging feeling that he was capturing Aang for his honor back, but he began to rethink his intentions when Aang talked about his Fire Nation friend.

I think this is my favorite episode. It has some great action sequences, and most of these action sequences manage to be quite funny without being ridiculous. And FROGS. My god, the frogs.  I love the scene where Aang's frogs begin to thaw and run away while he is still tied up. I love it that he tries to recapture them and Zuko has to tug him along to make him remember they are fleeing for their lives.
Zuko's motivation are perfectly ambigous - you get the feeling even he isn't quite sure about them anymore.

Frogs = Love Cheesy

And who thinks Zuko and Aang are an awesome team? I'd love to seen them fighting side by side again in a future episode. Zuko's swords were cool too. He didn't even need to firebend to take out all those Fire Nation soldiers.

what about the delirious sick Sokka? he was hilarious.

I know Sokka as a character gives a comic feel to the show, but it was that line in that episode that for some reason cracked me up endless.
apart from that this episode is incredibly good action filled and fun, and their is a hint that Zuko and Aang could become friends.

I saw Seige of the North parts 1 & 2 before I saw this eppie, so I already knew Zuko was the Blue Spirit. (Zhao mentions it in part2, so...yeah.) If I saw this eppie before the season finales, I probably wouldn't have known, being the guillible person that I am (not entirely, but enough). Tongue

This eppie kicked butt. I loved it when my mom panicked thinking that they were gonna kill Zuko/the Blue Spirit. Tongue

Before he was unmasked, I *never* guessed, it *never* occurred to me, the thought didn't even cross my mind in the "wouldn't it be cool if... even though it's impossible" way, that Zuko was the Blue Spirit! Before the end, I was actually almost totally convinced from the way he fought and his choice of weapon (twin swords) that it was Jet. I mean, I'd never seen Zuko fight without bending, even in that one-on-one hand-to-hand with the pirate captain from Ep. 9. It was a surprise.

This is another episode that I call "quintessential", ads this episode really shows that Aang does want to be friends with someone from the firenation, and that Zuko does have good in him.

I'm not saying that he doesn't, but how exactly does this episode show Zuko has good in him?

Well think on it, at the end of the episode Zuko might have shot at Aang but he also turned his back to the firenation flag.
To me you can tell that Zuko did indeed think about what Aang said to him as Aang flew off, and also Zuko shows that even though he wants the Avatar he will not use torture or other nasty things, to him his honor code is more important then the mad quest of the firenation.

This episode made me go crazy when I first saw it. My top 3 goes like this:
1. The Siege of the North (1 & 2)
2. The Blue Spirit
3. The Southern Air Temple

This is what I don't get about this episode...

Zhao says that he wasn't going to kill Aang because he'd just be reincarnated right? But, if he was killed, then there would be no airbenders left.. and the new avatar wouldn't be able to learn airbending. He wouldn't be able to reach his full potential as the avatar.

Even if he somehow did learn to airbend, the comet/asteroid thing that's supposed to come by summer's end would arrive before the new avatar could learn all four types of bending.

>> I still liked the episode though. The crazy cat lady, Zuko as the Blue Spirit, and the frogs were what did it for me.

well perhaps the firelord does need the avatar somehow, perhaps to activate the avatar state and possible ensure the fire nations victory?

Zhao may know the comet will bring them power to gain them victory but, knowing him, he likely doesn't know what Roku does about how its second use will upset the Balance beyond the Avatar's ability to restore it.  He thinks its just plain old artillery request or +15 to all fire magic talisman.  He doesn't get its epic and mystical significance.  Perhaps not even Ozai does.  Which might be what Aang will have to use to bit the Firelord.

Also even if the balance IS upset the Fire Nation wants the whole world forever who's to say the next avatar can't put a stop to that you think Roku or the Sages are talking or being listened to on that front?

In Chinese mythology, the blue spirit is a symbol of growth and development. Hee hee. Scriptwriters are funny.

Antimony also made a great point about how Zuko hides his proficiency with blades unless he's masked. I wonder if Zuko and Sokka will be the 'brothers Buttkick' pair when the team finally comes completely together.

Most definetly my favorite episode. When I first saw it, I hadn't the slightest idea that the Blue Spirit could be Zuko... I thought it was some old guy (like a Yoda kind of guy. Old but really really good with swords). And then when he was unmasked... ugh, can't find words to describe it, like shocked and amazed.

And of course the first appearance of the Yuuyan Archers. My favorite! Seeing the Blue Spirit being taken down by that one archer at the end, after everything Aang and him had just been through... Such a good episode! A HUGE 10 from me!

I first thought he was an airbender, because of the blue 'splash' he uses to reflect the fire in the beginning. It was only the third time I watched it I noticed he had a bucket of water whith him. >.<

I thought he was an earthbender at first. When he grabbed on the bottom of the carriage as it was driving toward the fortress, it seemed like he had just come from underground...

Zuko seems so much stronger as "The Blue Spirit" than his regular self.
