  • A good episode with action and some insight on Toph.

    Toph has just been included in the group and trouble has already started. As they are being continually chased wherever they go by Azula and start to get stressed from not being able to sleep, Katara and Toph also start arguing, which is both serious and humorous in a way. Toph leaves the group, but after an encounter with Iroh, who is secretly following Zuko following Azula, she learns she doesn't always have to do things herself, even if you don't need it. She realizes she could help everyone else and they could help her.

    This one included some nice action near the end of the show, with Azula, Aang, and Zuko fighting. It was interesting seeing this free-for-all take place. The Sokka and Katara segments against Mai and Ty Lee weren't as great, and could've been improved is so they had some sort of chance, instead of Appa taking them out after an easy victory. Also, in the free-for-all, when the others came, it was great seeing Azula getting ganged up on by all of them, but still escaping with her life, while still injuring one of them. This episode had a lot of tension, arguing, action, and Toph's character is beginning to develop, making me accept her more as part of the group.
