  • After the battle in Ba Sing Se, Zuko finally got his honor back, while Aang just lost it...

    During the battle, Aang was hurt badly by Azula's lighting while he was trying to enter the avatar state. Aang felt he failed in Ba Sing Se and was unable to protect all the people in the city from the invasion of the fire nation. He felt he was a failure and was very upset about this, he was eager to regain his honor by taking out the fire lord.
    While Aang was in great anguish Zuko was returning with his "honor" back. But he too was not happy, when he learnt that Azula told his father that he was the one who took down the avatar. All his honor will suddenly turn to shame and humiliation if the avatar is alive which Aang is alive in fact.
    The failure in Ba Sing Se worried two people, their destinies are now intertwined with each other. For Aang and Zuko hope and redeemption both exist, only if they work hard enough to achieve it.
