"No, she's crazy and she needs to go down."

Never was I so happy to hear the words of wise old Iroh. Finally, an "old master" who isn't filled with silly delusions about honor or balance that interfere with dealing with your wackjob family members. It was nice to seem him break that stereotype.

This was a great episode, another one that makes use of parallelism between Aang and Zuko. Iroh was great here with the background and knowledge, and the flashbacks were insightful as well. I didn't mind the "head on" mentality that Toph was trying to teach Aang, which in real life is more figurative than literal. There's an important balance between evasion and confrontation, and Aang had to realize that.

And Sokka was pretty funny as well. Cheesy

Now this was a great episode. I love it when the show explores the philosophy of its own setting. In addition, I like how this was reflected in Katara, Toph, and Aang's interactions. The characters of the original series really meshed well and what is even better, they each had their own voice. Moving on, I really liked Sokka in this episode. Although he was a cosmic play thing, he manages to be entertaining through out his misfortunes. I also really liked that brief flashback with Iroh and his son. I thought the show was going somewhere with that. Unfortunately, it did not. Zuko was also great. I felt bad for the guy. The universe hates him so much that it won't even zap him with lightning.
