  • Sozin's Comet (3): Into the Inferno

    Sozin's Comet (3): Into the Inferno was a perfect and very entertaining episode of Avatar The Last Airbender. I really enjoyed watching this episode because it was full of action as the Gang embark upon their missions. Ozai is at the head of his air ship fleet ready to burn the world, as Sokka, Toph, and Suki try to destroy the ships, and Katara and Zuko try to preven Azula from becoming crowned the new Fire Lord. I thought it was cool how Aang was on a Lion Turtle and it gave him wisdom and then he set out and encountered the Phoenix King Ozai. I enjoyed their battle scenes and I look forward to the final episode of Avatar The Last Airbender!!!!!!!moreless
  • everyone goes to do what they must to save the earth kingdom from being destroyed by the fire nation.

    as said the the summary, katara and zuko go to the fire nation capital to stop azula from becoming firelord. toph, sokka, and suki have to stop the airships from proceeding their mission. aang needs to go and kill the firelord. the order of the white lotus have to take back ba sing se in the name of the earth kingdom. toph, sokka, and suki take over one airship and need a plan to stop the rest of the airships from attacking the earth kingdom. zuko and azula have the ultimate agni kai. and the firelord goes against the avatar. . .moreless
  • *Picks up jaw* Wow, is all I can say

    This is...wow. We are only halfway through the ending and it has been a candy fest full of great aesthetic and production values, awesome choreographed fights, some emotional moments, and of course although there was little said in the entire episode, it still managed to offer some humour and character development. What really stood out was Azula's transformation from a composed soldier to a confused ruler. This idea seemed a little bit rushed but the execution for it was still very good. The fights though, wow, some of the best so far bar none. The power levels is reaching Dragonball Z levels, but the creativity takes itself up a notch as well, and what we get is a true battle of the titans. Not only the one between Ozai and Aang, but also Azula and Zuko, as well as the Fire Nation versus the White Lotus group.moreless
  • the best episode ever

    sozins comet part 3 is the best episode for avatar the last airbender . the writer have this entire episode all action and fighting sequences which i totally like and best of all it seems that aang might actually get defeated by the firelord but my fav part is when zuko takes on azula.aang looks quite weak but surprisingly he manage to survive all the fireblast thrown at him by the firelord. and what else better is the lines chosen when aang is fighting with the firelord.katara waterbending skills were weak mainly because of the comet approaching.sokka and toph totally dont care ofmoreless
  • this is my favourite episode out of the four episode finally and probably one of my favourites out of the whole series. it thought it was well written and put together perfectly. perfect climax to end the battle of battles!moreless

    one of the things that made it so good was how we got to see how each character was putting his/hers own input into the final battle which helped it gain a powerful climax. normaly when a battle occurs we only mainly see the action only between one or two members of the group and the enemy fully. however in this episode everyone had an important part to play no one was sort of just dallying around sort of helping out aang in the background or something, the creators had thought well about what each character was specifically going to do to fight and show us how important that roll was. it was so of good that sokka tophs and sukis role in this episode was one of my favourite parts and normally its sokka and sukki that are normally left out of major battle scenes as they are none benders so it was amazing to see them fight. also the music played a key role to make this episode all round perfectness! yaymoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Zuko is asking Katara what she thinks will happen, her fingers are blue.

    • When Jeong Jeong is fighting against the Fire Nation tanks, he shoots a wall of fire at the tanks moving them out of the way. In the next scene, they are back where they were before.

    • Into the Inferno is also the title of the third Avatar: The Last Airbender video game that was released in October 2008.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Ursa: I think you're confused. All your life you used fear to control people, like your friends Mai and Ty Lee.
      Azula: But what choice do I have? Trust is for fools! Fear is the only reliable way! Even you fear me.
      Ursa: No. I love you Azula, I do. (Azula throws her brush at the mirror, which then shatters)

    • Sokka: Go Aang! Airbending slice!

    • Azula: (to Zuko) You want to be Fire Lord? Fine…Let's settle this…just you and me brother. The showdown that was always meant to be…Agni Kai!!

    • (Talking to her hallucination of Ursa)
      Azula: Don't pretend to act proud. I know what you really think of me. You think I'm a monster.

    • Azula: Alright hair, it's time to face your doom.

    • Bumi: Ba Sing Se, the Order of the White Lotus is here.
      Pakku: Here to set you free.

    • Azula: Is this how you plan to treat your new Fire Lord with tardiness and disloyalty?
      Dai Li Agent: The Dai Li would never betray you.
      Azula: And I'm sure that's just what you told Long Feng before you turned against him and joined me. You're all banished!

    • Suki: It's weird to say, but the comet actually looks beautiful.
      Toph: Too bad the Fire Lord is about to use it to destroy the world.

    • Lo: But considering everything that's happening today...
      Li: Perhaps it's best if we postponed your coronation.
      Azula: What? Which one of you just said that?
      (Lo and Li point at each other)
      Azula: What a shame. There's only one way to resolve this. You two must duel each other. I order you to fight an Agni Kai.
      Lo: But..
      Lo and Li: We're not Firebenders.
      Azula: Alright. Fine. (Points at Li) Lo, you're banished. (Points at Lo) Li, you can stay
      Li: But I'm Li, so who's banished.

    • Sokka (Over the intercom): Attention crew, this is your captain speaking. Everyone please report to the bomb bay immediately, for hot cakes, and sweet cream. We have a very special birthday to celebrate.
      (In the bomb bay)
      Quinn Lee: Hey, I'm Quinn Lee, I work up in communications.
      Engine Worker: Oh, Hi. I work down in the engine room. That's probably why we've never met before. Big airship, you know. (Quinn Lee laughs) Yep.
      Quinn Lee: Do you know who's birthday it is?
      Worker: I can't believe the captain remembered my birthday, he really does care.
      (Hatch opens up, everyone falls into the water.)
      Engine Worker (After resurfacing): Happy birthday.

    • Ozai: After generations of Fire Lords failed to find you, now the universe delivers you to me as an act of providence.
      Aang: Please listen to me, we don't have to fight. You have the power to end it here and stop what you're doing.
      Ozai: You are right. I do have the power. I have all the power in the world! (Ozai shoots two huge fireballs from his hands and one from his mouth)

    • Ozai: You're weak, just like the rest of your people. They did not deserve to exist in this world, in my world! Prepare to join them. Prepare to die!

    • Sokka: Good work, Toph. Time to take the ship. Take the wheel.
      Toph (sarcastically): That's a great idea. Let the blind girl steer the giant airship.
      Sokka: I was talking to Suki.
      Toph: That would make a lot more sense.

  • NOTES (2)

    • This episode aired along with "Sozin's Comet (1): The Phoenix King", "Sozin's Comet (2): The Old Masters", and "Sozin's Comet (4): "Avatar Aang" as the TV-Movie/Series Finale: Sozin's Comet: The Final Battle.

    • This episode is available in the Book 3: Fire, Volume 4 DVD, along with, "The Southern Raiders", "The Ember Island Players", "Sozin's Comet (1): The Phoenix King", "Sozin's Comet (2): The Old Masters", and "Sozin's Comet (4): Avatar Aang".


    • Zuko and Azula's battle may be a humorous reference to the phrase "Fight fire with fire", meaning if you wish to defeat your enemy you must think like your enemy.

    • When Azula smashes the mirror because of seeing the hallucination of her mother, is similar to how Harry Osborne reacted to seeing a hallucination of his father in Spiderman 2. Both characters' hallucinations consist of one of their parents that does not give them enough love.

    • Azula's paranoia that stems from her recent betrayal of Ty Lee and Mai from The Boiling Rock has drastically made her insane, which is similar to what happened to Clark Kent from Smallville in the episode called Splinter.
