      After camping out, Sokka decides that the group should hoof it for awhile. He explains that he believes the fire nation is able to find them because Appa is too noticeable when they’re airborne. The group teases him about it, despite the fact that it’s a pretty logical deduction, but they agree to walk for awhile.

      Sokka’s luck being what it is, this results in them walking right into a fire nation camp. Their hides are saved by a group of guerilla freedom fighters led by a boy named Jet. Katara takes an instant liking to him.

      You’d think


      that this would make Aang a bit jealous, seeing as he’s been crushing on her since they met, but it’s Sokka who gets jealous.

      While it seems like the group has found a new ally, things take a turn south when the group attacks an old man from the fire nation. Sokka becomes suspicious, despite Jet’s assertion that the man was an assassin.

      It seems that while Jet and the group have a common enemy, his methods aren’t right as he shows himself to be willing to wipe out an entire village if it purges it of fire nation influence.

      I find it ...


      • odd, and kind of sad, that Katara was so willing to trust a relative stranger over her own brother. I know, she was a bit infatuated, but still.

        I was also amused by how Jet and Batman have essentially the same origin story.

        The episode is more serious in tone than other episodes, but it works quite well. You really see and hear Katara’s emotional pain as she sees Jet for the man he really is.

        I’m not sure why Aang was at a disadvantage in the fight with Jet. He has control over two elements, while Jet has

        some hooks. Ok, it allowed Katara to dish out some well deserved payback, but still.

        The episode tackles a moral grey area. Jet really isn’t a villain, more of a well intentioned extremist. He takes the idea that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and puts a dark spin on it.

        It’ll be interesting to see if Jet or his cohorts return in future episodes. It seems like their story is done, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Jet pursued them to get revenge for what they did.
