    • Once again, the show borrows some elements from a Western movie. The chase, the deserted ghost town, the standoff and the battle royale, or more commonly "Texas shootout," which took place in this episode are all well-known sequences of a Western movie. One of the most reminiscent parts had to be at the end when Azula shot down Iroh after surrendering. This parallels to how in the movies, the villain puts his hands in the air and pretends to give up right before whipping out his pistol and shooting his opponent down.
