  • Hopefully he comes back more because he's definitely a character I want to see again
  • Even though I know darn well that his accusations are 100% accurate, it was nice to see the other citizens side with the pair and it was satisfying seeing him get dragged away
  • As much as I consistently enjoy this show for it's humor and strong writing, it's those moments where your jaw drops and chills are sent up your spine that really make this show as amazing as it is

      The group arrives in Ba Sing Se. The city is quite stunning, it’s freaking huge and filled with people from all walks of life. There seems to be a strange system where people are divided according to class.

      Team Avatar is introduced to their guide and host, Ju Dee, a woman who comes off as cheery and friendly, but has a creepy smile plastered on her face at all times.

      Sokka insists that they be brought to see the king immediately because they have vital information in regards to the fire kingdom. No one wants to hear it and they are brought to a house to


      stay in.

      The episode does a good job building up mystery as no one in town wants to talk about either the war or the possibility of having seen Appa. They decide to go on the offensive, infiltrating a party hosted by the king himself. He even has a bear! Ironically, the group is weirded out by the fact that it’s just a bear and not a bear mixed with some other animal like most animals in this show are.

      They are brought in by a man named Long Feng, who’s voiced by Lex frickin’ Luthor himself, Clancy Brown. He’s always awesome. He doesn’t have a large ...

        Jet continues to investigate Zuko and Iroh. Even though I know darn well that his accusations are 100% accurate, it was nice to see the other citizens side with the pair and it was satisfying seeing him get dragged away.

        Jet and Zuko are surprisingly evenly matched. Considering Zuko can’t use his firebending for fear of being exposed, I guess it makes sense, but I figured he

        would’ve had Jet beaten handily. It was still a good fight.

        The episode really shines in the final moments as Long Feng delivers a very creepy speech about the true nature of Ba Sing Se. The score is appropriately creepy and all of this is augmented by being intercut with Jet being taken away and brainwashed to believe that there is no war. It was pulled off magnificently. As much as I consistently enjoy this show for it’s humor and strong writing, it’s those moments where your jaw drops and chills are sent up your spine that really make this show as amazing as it is.
