  • Aang, Sokka, and Katara arrive at the Earth Kingdom of Omashu. They are taken captive, however, and put through a series of tests by the crazy king.

    This episode was certainly out of the ordinary. It was pretty good though. Aang takes Sokka and Katara to one of his favorite places: Omashu. When he shows them a popular game from his childhood, they are captured and brought to the King. He turns out to be something of an eccentric, and captures Sokka and Katara. To save them, Aang must survive a series of tests presented by the King. Aang performs them, and saves Katara and Sokka just before they are completely encased in crystal. In the end, the king reveals himself to be Aang's dear friend from 100 years ago.
