Aang is haunted by the thought of reverting into the Avatar State, fearing he won't be able to control himself, and tries to avoid it at all costs. The gang travels to the Earth Kingdom to meet with a general who plans on using the Avatar State to beat the Fire Nation. Meanwhile, Zuko and Iroh are visited by Azula, Zuko's sister, who tells them they are finally going home. However, Iroh is suspicious.
Azula calls Zuko 'Zuzu'.
During the flashback of the other Avatars, we see a female Airbender, and she has hair.
Opener- Aang dreaming about his past experiences in the Avatar state.
In this episode we learn that Aang's glowing while in the Avatar State is a sign of all the past Avatars channeling themselves through Aang. If Aang was to die while in the Avatar State, the Avatar cycle would end.
General Fong: Avatar. You're ready to face the Fire Lord now.
Aang: What? No I'm not!
Azula: Almost isn't good enough.
Tea Guy: This rare, chee enhancing tea is a natural stimulent. In an ordinary warrior it improves strength and energy ten-fold. In you, it may induce the Avatar State
Aang: Ten-fold energy huh? (drinks tea and his eyebrow wiggles)
(scene switches to Aang zooming around on his air scooter)
Aang: (in a really fast, squeaky, annoying voice) Is it working, is it working, I can't tell! Somebody tell me if I'm in the Avatar State because I don't have a good view of myself, am I talking to loud?!
Sokka: (sarcastically) I guess he could talk the Fire Lord to death
(Aang crashes into Pole)
Aang: (hugging Katara after coming out of hte Avatar State) I'm sorry Katara. I hope you never have to see me like that again
General Fong: Ha! Are you joking? That was almost perfect! We just have to find out a way to control you when you're like that.
Aang: You're out of your mind.
General Fong: I guess we'll figure it out on our way over to the Fire Nation
Sokka: (rides over on bird-horse and hits Fong with his stick and knocks him out) Anybody got a problem with that?
(other soldiers shake their head)
Iroh: (walks over to where Zuko is sitting, alone) I see. It's the Anniversary, isn't it?
Zuko: Three years ago today I was banished. I lost it all. I want it back. I want the Avatar, I want my honor, my throne. I want my father not to think I'm worthless.
Iroh: I'm sure he doesn't. Why would he banish you if he didn't care?
