  • Aang and the gang camp out by a lake and travel to an EarthKingdom dock. They meet a ban of pirates who sell stolen items. Katara decides to steal something from the thieves. A Waterbending Scroll. But Katara may end up regretting whens she becomes obsesd

    Not one of my favorites to tune into. The beginning started out well with Katara teaching Aangs the basics of waterbending. When he starts doing better than her she gets jealous. I never really saw Katara as a jealous person, and espicially a theif. Katara is supposed to be a strong independent character and now shes running around stealing things and being greedy with the waterbending scroll? Just seems a bit out of character for her.
    The good parts of the episode was the final brawl. I felt alot of tension between Zuko and Katara. And the mix with the pirates made things much better. There was alot of comedy mixed in the fight too it was chaotic and fun to watch. And the final part when they were on the boat was also cool. Another part i wasnt really buying was the ending where basically Katara got what she wanted and was kind of a jerk about it at the end. I dont like seeing Katara like that and she just seems out of character still. She got away with everything in the episode with zero consequences. As for Zuko and Uncle, they were also funny. Iroh is hilarious how he had his Pisho piece with him the whole time. Not the best filler story for a series that has the best filler stories. But it is still entertaining to watch and its not something i would turn from
