On the last episode of 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' - It took long enough, but Sokka finally realized how much he's left out with Aang, Katara, and Toph able to bend the elements at will. And he's... just the ordinary guy. The group tries to cheer him up by taking him to a weapons' dealer, when he gazes eyes upon a spectacularly crafted sword, forged by a sword master who lives in the area. And with that, Sokka sees a chance to prove himself a force in battle again by asking this sword master, Piandao, for lessons. Despite his unworthiness (admitting in brutal honesty), Master Piandao actually sees that as a reason to teach Sokka. So as Sokka learns the way of the sword, Aang and the others... are bored to near death, obviously missing their favorite comedian. Eventually, through perseverance and a way that only Sokka can, he completes his training with Master Piandao - even though Sokka doesn't have the direct skills necessary to become a great swordsman, and that he hid the fact that he's not from the Fire Nation. Sokka proved that power isn't the only way to achieve in life. Meanwhile, Uncle Iroh continues to mope in prison. Or does he? And what has our favorite love-to-hate princess of the Fire Nation been up to? |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||||||||||||| ||||||||||||||| |||||||||| ||||| ||| | But I believe Aang can save the world...The world seems firmly in control of the Fire Nation on Avatar: The Last Airbender. In Season 3, the biggest question to be answered is... did the Avatar survive the battle at Ba Sing Se? Or has the reincarnation become permanently broken? Only a few know the truth...
