  • A decent episode.

    This episode presented a clear theme, and that's settling differences. It started off with a teaser in how Katara and Sokka were in disagreement about setting up their camp, and then the theme expanded into two tribes in a 100 year feud. It was pretty nice to see how the feud was settled, in an innocent lie by Aang that was for the greater good, but although it was doing such a nice job of developing this idea of two tribes with its clear sets of rules and principles, where it falls a bit is believability. How a 100 year feud can be handled because not only did they work together for just a single second, granted it was to survive, but they fell for the words of a 12 year old boy? I dunno, seems a little bit too convenient of a way to wrap up an episode just because it was running out of time.
