  • Great all around episode!

    This episode was constantly delivering on a lot of levels. It's great how the show is using Zuko and Aang as two people going through the same things--kinda--under different perspective. On one side we have Aang who is living in the richest part of Ba Sing Se trying to deliver valuable information to the King, and on the other we have Zuko who wants to restart their life in the slums and have a stalker in Jet trying to expose their identity. In the first half of the episode we are shifted into a world with a structured society and culture and just gives us that new world type of feeling that makes people fans of fictional epics. And in the second half we see what's behind the masks of this brilliant kingdom; a world that is trying to isolate itself from the outside in order to save its own kind. A truly effective episode and possibly one of the better ones out there.
