0:01 - 0:03 Water.
0:03 - 0:05 Earth.
0:05 - 0:07 Fire.
0:07 - 0:10 Air.
0:10 - 0:14 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:14 - 0:18 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:18 - 0:21 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them.
0:21 - 0:26 But when the world needed him most, he vanished.
0:26 - 0:30 A hundred years passed, and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar,
0:30 - 0:31 an airbender named Aang.
0:31 - 0:34 And although his airbending skills are great,
0:34 - 0:36 he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:36 - 0:37 Oof!
0:37 - 0:40 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:47 - 0:49 Previously on Avatar...
0:49 - 0:52 Don't you know fans just make flame stronger?
0:55 - 0:58 I am Long Feng, head of the Dai Li.
0:58 - 1:00 Why won't you let us talk to the king?
1:00 - 1:03 The Earth King has no time to get involved with political squabbles.
1:03 - 1:05 So the king is just a figurehead?
1:05 - 1:07 He's your puppet!
1:08 - 1:10 It's time for you to look inward,
1:11 - 1:14 and begin asking yourself the big questions.
1:14 - 1:15 Who are you?
1:16 - 1:17 And what do you want?
1:18 - 1:20 I can handle you by myself.
1:23 - 1:25 I missed you, buddy.
1:36 - 1:40 I missed you more than you'll ever know, buddy.
1:43 - 1:46 Look, we escaped from the Dai Li, we got Appa back,
1:46 - 1:50 I'm telling you, we should go to the Earth King now and tell him our plan.
1:50 - 1:51 We're on a roll.
1:51 - 1:54 One good hour after weeks of trouble isn't much of a roll.
1:54 - 1:55 We can build on it.
1:55 - 1:58 If we want to invade the Fire Nation when the eclipse happens,
1:58 - 2:00 we need the Earth King's support.
2:00 - 2:02 What makes you think we'll get it?
2:02 - 2:04 I don't know if you've noticed,
2:04 - 2:07 but things don't usually go that smoothly for our little gang.
2:07 - 2:09 I know, but I've got a good feeling about this.
2:09 - 2:10 This time'll be different.
2:10 - 2:12 Sokka, Long Feng is in control of the city.
2:13 - 2:16 His conspiracy with the Dai Li is too powerful.
2:16 - 2:19 I think we should just keep flying and leave this horrible place behind us.
2:20 - 2:23 I'm with sweetness. I've seen enough of Ba Sing Se.
2:23 - 2:26 And I can't even see!
2:26 - 2:27 But now that we have Appa back,
2:28 - 2:31 there's nothing stopping us from telling the Earth King the truth.
2:31 - 2:32 About the conspiracy and the war.
2:32 - 2:34 See, Aang's with me.
2:34 - 2:38 It's the whole reason we came here in the first place, we have to try.
2:38 - 2:42 Well, I guess if the Earth King knew the truth,
2:42 - 2:44 things could change.
2:45 - 2:48 I don't trust the new positive Sokka.
2:48 - 2:51 Long Feng brainwashed you, didn't he?
2:55 - 2:58 That's probably the Dai Li searching for us, so?
2:59 - 3:00 Let's fly.
3:05 - 3:07 Can we please buy a new saddle?
3:07 - 3:09 Riding bareback is terrifying.
3:12 - 3:13 There it is.
3:13 - 3:15 That whole thing is the palace.
3:15 - 3:17 The Earth King's chamber should be in the center.
3:17 - 3:18 We have to be careful.
3:18 - 3:21 Long Feng's probably warned the king that we're coming.
3:21 - 3:23 why would you assume that?
3:23 - 3:26 If you ask me, I think we're just gonna sail right...
3:26 - 3:28 What was that?
3:28 - 3:29 Surface-to-air rocks!
3:29 - 3:30 More incoming!
4:24 - 4:27 Sorry!
4:35 - 4:38 Sorry, we just need to get through to see the Earth King.
5:31 - 5:34 Seriously, we're actually on your guys' side!
5:36 - 5:37 Sorry.
5:44 - 5:45 In there.
5:54 - 5:56 Toph, which way to the Earth King?
5:56 - 5:57 How should I know?
5:57 - 5:59 I'm still voting we leave Ba Sing Se.
6:00 - 6:02 Whoa!
6:09 - 6:10 Burglar!
6:10 - 6:12 Sorry, wrong door.
6:18 - 6:21 You did the right thing.
6:21 - 6:23 Letting the Avatar's bison go free.
6:23 - 6:25 I don't feel right.
6:33 - 6:34 Zuko!
6:42 - 6:43 Now that's an impressive door.
6:43 - 6:45 It's gotta go somewhere.
6:46 - 6:48 Yah!
6:56 - 6:58 A little warning, next time?
7:07 - 7:09 We need to talk to you.
7:09 - 7:11 They're here to overthrow you.
7:12 - 7:13 No, we're on your side.
7:13 - 7:14 We're here to help.
7:14 - 7:16 You have to trust us.
7:16 - 7:17 You invade my palace,
7:17 - 7:19 lay waste to all my guards,
7:19 - 7:20 break down my fancy door,
7:20 - 7:23 and you expect me to trust you?
7:23 - 7:25 He has a good point.
7:25 - 7:27 If you're on my side,
7:27 - 7:29 then drop your weapons and stand down.
7:36 - 7:39 See, we're friends, Your Earthiness.
7:52 - 7:54 Detain the assailants.
7:57 - 7:59 But we dropped our weapons.
7:59 - 8:00 We're your allies!
8:00 - 8:05 Make sure the Avatar and his friends never see daylight again.
8:05 - 8:06 The Avatar?
8:06 - 8:08 You're the Avatar?
8:08 - 8:10 Uh, no, him.
8:10 - 8:11 Over here.
8:11 - 8:13 What does it matter, Your Highness?
8:13 - 8:15 They're enemies of the state.
8:15 - 8:18 Perhaps you're right.
8:22 - 8:24 Though Bosco seems to like him.
8:24 - 8:26 I'll hear what he has to say.
8:28 - 8:31 Well, sir, there's a war going on right now.
8:31 - 8:33 For the past 100 years, in fact.
8:33 - 8:35 The Dai Li's kept it secret from you.
8:36 - 8:39 It's a conspiracy to control the city and to control you.
8:39 - 8:40 A secret war?
8:40 - 8:42 That's crazy!
8:42 - 8:43 Completely.
8:43 - 8:45 Long Feng didn't want us to tell you,
8:46 - 8:48 so he stole our sky bison to blackmail us.
8:48 - 8:50 And blackmail is the least of his crimes.
8:50 - 8:52 He brainwashed our friend!
8:52 - 8:53 All lies.
8:53 - 8:56 I've never even seen a sky bison, Your Majesty.
8:56 - 8:59 Frankly, I thought they were extinct.
8:59 - 9:00 Your claim is difficult to believe.
9:01 - 9:02 Even from an Avatar.
9:03 - 9:05 These hooligans are part of an anarchist cell
9:06 - 9:08 that my legions have been tracking for weeks.
9:08 - 9:12 If you listen to them, you're playing right into your own destruction.
9:15 - 9:17 I have to trust my advisor.
9:21 - 9:24 Wait, I can prove he's lying!
9:24 - 9:27 Long Feng said he's never seen a sky bison.
9:27 - 9:28 Ask him to lift his robe.
9:28 - 9:29 What?
9:29 - 9:31 I am not disrobing.
9:36 - 9:40 Right there, Appa bit him!
9:40 - 9:43 Never met a sky bison, huh?
9:43 - 9:46 That happens to be a large birthmark.
9:46 - 9:48 Thanks for showing everyone.
9:48 - 9:51 Well, I suppose there's no way to prove where those marks came from.
9:51 - 9:53 Of course there is.
9:58 - 10:01 Yep, that pretty much proves it.
10:04 - 10:07 But it doesn't prove this crazy conspiracy theory.
10:08 - 10:12 Though, I suppose this matter is worth looking into.
10:12 - 10:16 Uh, O.K., We'll take it, uh, yeah, all right.
10:25 - 10:27 You're burning up.
10:27 - 10:29 You have an intense fever.
10:29 - 10:31 This will help cool you down.
10:31 - 10:33 So thirsty.
10:36 - 10:39 Here's some clean water to drink.
10:39 - 10:41 Stay under the blankets and sweat this out.
11:02 - 11:05 So this is what a train is like.
11:05 - 11:08 I didn't realize it would be this... Public.
11:09 - 11:12 So you've never been outside the upper ring before?
11:12 - 11:14 I've never been outside the palace.
11:14 - 11:16 Now that's the way to travel.
11:19 - 11:22 So, may I ask where we're going?
11:22 - 11:24 Underneath Lake Laogai, Your Kingliness.
11:24 - 11:26 To the Dai Li secret headquarters.
11:26 - 11:28 You're about to see where all
11:28 - 11:30 the brainwashing and conspiring took place.
11:41 - 11:43 It's gone!
11:43 - 11:46 Oh, don't tell me...
11:46 - 11:48 That's O.K., Still got my positive attitude.
11:49 - 11:52 The Dai Li must have known we were coming and destroyed the evidence.
11:52 - 11:55 Hmm, that seems awfully convenient.
11:55 - 12:00 Hey, if anything, this proves the conspiracy exists even more.
12:00 - 12:03 Long Feng was right, this was a waste of time.
12:03 - 12:07 If you'll excuse me, I'm going back to the palace.
12:07 - 12:08 The wall!
12:09 - 12:11 They'll never be able to cover that up in time.
12:11 - 12:12 Oh, yeah.
12:14 - 12:16 If you come with us to the outer wall,
12:16 - 12:19 we can prove to you that the secret war is real.
12:20 - 12:22 No Earth King has ever been to the outer wall.
12:23 - 12:27 I don't have any more time for this nonsense.
12:27 - 12:30 If you come with us, this time you can ride on Appa.
12:36 - 12:37 First time flying?
12:37 - 12:40 It's both thrilling and terrifying.
12:40 - 12:42 Yeah, I hate it, too.
12:43 - 12:45 I have to be honest with you.
12:45 - 12:48 Part of me really hopes that what you're telling me about this war...
12:48 - 12:50 Isn't true.
12:50 - 12:51 I wish it wasn't.
13:12 - 13:13 It's getting late.
13:13 - 13:16 Are you planning to retire soon, My Lord?
13:17 - 13:19 I'm not tired.
13:19 - 13:20 Relax, Fire Lord Zuko.
13:21 - 13:22 Just let go.
13:22 - 13:24 Give in to it.
13:24 - 13:26 Shut your eyes for a while.
13:26 - 13:29 No, Fire Lord Zuko!
13:29 - 13:31 Do not listen to the blue dragon.
13:31 - 13:34 You should get out of here right now.
13:34 - 13:35 Go!
13:35 - 13:38 Before it's too late!
13:38 - 13:41 Sleep now, Fire Lord Zuko.
13:54 - 13:55 Sleep.
13:55 - 13:57 Just like mother!
13:59 - 14:02 Zuko, help me!
14:09 - 14:10 It's still there!
14:12 - 14:14 What is that?
14:14 - 14:15 It's a drill.
14:15 - 14:17 A giant drill, made by the Fire Nation,
14:17 - 14:20 to break through your walls.
14:24 - 14:27 I can't believe I never knew.
14:28 - 14:31 I can explain this, Your Majesty.
14:31 - 14:32 This is nothing more than...
14:33 - 14:34 A construction project.
14:34 - 14:36 Really?
14:36 - 14:38 Then perhaps you could explain why there's
14:38 - 14:41 a Fire Nation insignia on your construction project.
14:43 - 14:45 Well, it's imported, of course.
14:45 - 14:48 You know you can't trust domestic machinery.
14:51 - 14:54 Surely you don't believe these children instead of your most loyal attendant?
15:01 - 15:04 Dai Li, arrest Long Feng.
15:04 - 15:07 I want him to stand trial for crimes against the Earth Kingdom.
15:18 - 15:20 You can't arrest me.
15:20 - 15:22 You all need me more than you know!
15:22 - 15:25 Looks like Long Feng is long gone!
15:25 - 15:26 Ha...
15:27 - 15:29 Oh, yeah, I've been waitin' to use that one.
15:35 - 15:37 I want to thank you, young heroes,
15:37 - 15:39 for opening my eyes.
15:39 - 15:42 All this time, what I thought was a great metropolis was merely a city of fools.
15:43 - 15:46 And that makes me the king fool.
15:48 - 15:50 We're at war with the Fire Nation.
15:51 - 15:53 That's why we came to Ba Sing Se, Your Highness.
15:53 - 15:56 Because we think you could help us end the war.
15:56 - 15:58 We don't have much time.
15:58 - 16:00 There's a comet coming this summer.
16:00 - 16:03 Its energy will give the firebenders unbelievable strength.
16:03 - 16:05 They'll be unstoppable.
16:05 - 16:06 But there is hope.
16:06 - 16:09 Before the comet comes, we have a window of opportunity.
16:09 - 16:11 A solar eclipse is coming.
16:12 - 16:14 The sun will be entirely blocked out by the moon,
16:14 - 16:16 and the firebenders will be helpless.
16:16 - 16:18 What are you suggesting, Sokka?
16:18 - 16:22 That's the day we need to invade the Fire Nation.
16:22 - 16:25 The day of black sun.
16:25 - 16:26 I don't know.
16:26 - 16:29 That would require moving troops out of Ba Sing Se.
16:29 - 16:31 We'd be completely vulnerable.
16:31 - 16:33 You're already vulnerable.
16:33 - 16:37 The Fire Nation won't stop until Ba Sing Se falls.
16:37 - 16:40 You can either sit back and wait for that to happen,
16:40 - 16:44 or take the offensive and give yourself a fighting chance.
16:47 - 16:49 Very well.
16:49 - 16:50 You have my support.
16:55 - 16:56 Your Majesty.
16:58 - 17:01 I apologize for the interruption.
17:01 - 17:03 This is General How.
17:03 - 17:07 He's the leader of the Council of Five, my highest-ranking generals.
17:08 - 17:09 We searched Long Feng's office.
17:09 - 17:14 I think we found something that will interest everybody.
17:15 - 17:19 There are secret files on everyone in Ba Sing Se.
17:19 - 17:20 Including you kids.
17:20 - 17:22 Secret files?
17:22 - 17:23 Toph Beifong.
17:27 - 17:28 It's a letter from your mom.
17:28 - 17:30 Your mom's here in the city.
17:30 - 17:32 And she wants to see you.
17:33 - 17:35 Long Feng intercepted our letters from home?
17:35 - 17:36 That's just sad.
17:37 - 17:38 Aang.
17:38 - 17:43 This scroll was attached to the horn of your bison when the Dai Li captured it.
17:43 - 17:46 It's from the Eastern Air Temple.
17:46 - 17:51 Is there a letter for me and Sokka, by any chance?
17:51 - 17:52 I'm afraid not.
17:54 - 17:55 Oh.
17:55 - 17:59 But there is an intelligence report that might interest you.
17:59 - 18:01 A small fleet of water tribe ships?
18:01 - 18:02 What?
18:03 - 18:04 That could be Dad!
18:04 - 18:06 Protecting the mouth of Chameleon Bay?
18:06 - 18:09 Led by Hakoda, it is Dad!
18:12 - 18:15 You should know this is not a natural sickness.
18:15 - 18:19 But that shouldn't stop you from enjoying tea.
18:19 - 18:21 What, what's happening?
18:21 - 18:25 Your critical decision, what you did beneath that lake,
18:26 - 18:29 it was in such conflict with your image of yourself
18:29 - 18:35 that you are now at war within your own mind and body.
18:35 - 18:36 What's that mean?
18:39 - 18:43 You're going through a metamorphosis, my nephew.
18:43 - 18:46 It will not be a pleasant experience.
18:46 - 18:48 But when you come out of it,
18:49 - 18:52 you will be the beautiful prince you were always meant to be.
18:54 - 18:56 I can't believe it.
18:56 - 18:59 There's a man living at the Eastern Air Temple.
18:59 - 19:00 He says he's a guru.
19:00 - 19:03 What's a guru? Some kind of poisonous blowfish?
19:03 - 19:05 No, a spiritual expert.
19:05 - 19:08 He wants to help me take the next step in the Avatar journey.
19:08 - 19:11 He says he can teach me to control the Avatar state.
19:11 - 19:14 And I can't believe we know where our dad is now.
19:14 - 19:15 I know what you mean.
19:15 - 19:17 My mom's in the city,
19:17 - 19:20 and from her letter, it sounds like she finally understands me.
19:21 - 19:23 This is all such big news.
19:23 - 19:24 Where do we even start?
19:24 - 19:26 I hate to say it, but...
19:27 - 19:28 We have to split up.
19:28 - 19:29 Split up?
19:30 - 19:32 We just found Appa and got the family back together.
19:32 - 19:35 Now you want us to separate?
19:35 - 19:37 You have to meet this guru, Aang.
19:37 - 19:42 If we're gonna invade the Fire Nation, you need to be ready.
19:42 - 19:44 Well, if I'm going to the Eastern Air Temple,
19:44 - 19:47 Appa and I can drop you off at Chameleon Bay to see your dad.
19:47 - 19:49 Someone has to stay here with the Earth King
19:49 - 19:51 and help him plan for the invasion.
19:51 - 19:52 I guess that's me.
19:52 - 19:55 No, Sokka, I know how badly you want to help Dad.
19:56 - 19:59 You go to Chameleon Bay, I'll stay here with the king.
19:59 - 20:01 You are the...
20:01 - 20:04 Nicest... Sister... Ever!
20:06 - 20:08 Easy there, big brother.
20:08 - 20:10 Though you're right, I am.
20:16 - 20:20 Katara, I need to tell you something.
20:20 - 20:22 I've been wanting to say it for a long time.
20:23 - 20:24 What is it, Aang?
20:24 - 20:26 Katara, I...
20:26 - 20:27 All right!
20:27 - 20:32 Who's ready to get going on a little men-only, man trip?
20:32 - 20:35 Aang and Sokka, I wish you a good journey.
20:35 - 20:37 Ba Sing Se owes you its thanks.
20:38 - 20:41 And we look forward to your safe return.
20:42 - 20:45 Your Majesty, there are three female warriors here to see you.
20:45 - 20:47 They're from the island of Kyoshi.
20:47 - 20:48 That's Suki!
20:51 - 20:52 You know these warriors?
20:52 - 20:53 Oh, yeah.
20:53 - 20:56 The Kyoshi Warriors are a skilled group of fighters.
20:56 - 20:57 Trustworthy, too.
20:57 - 20:59 They're good friends of ours.
21:00 - 21:04 Then we shall welcome them as honored guests.
21:04 - 21:05 Wait, Aang.
21:11 - 21:13 I'm really gonna miss you guys.
21:13 - 21:16 Me, too. AANG: Yeah.
21:19 - 21:21 Great, that's enough.
21:21 - 21:23 O.K., We love each other.
21:24 - 21:25 Seriously.
22:01 - 22:03 You see, Aang?
22:04 - 22:05 A little positive thinking works wonders.
22:06 - 22:09 We got the king on our side, we got Long Feng arrested,
22:09 - 22:11 and when we get back, Suki's waiting for me.
22:11 - 22:13 Yeah.
22:13 - 22:14 Girls are waiting for us.
22:14 - 22:17 Thanks, positive attitude.
22:17 - 22:19 Everything is gonna work out perfectly.
22:19 - 22:21 From now on and forever.
22:30 - 22:31 Dinner.
22:32 - 22:35 The Council of Five and the military are loyal to the Earth King.
22:35 - 22:41 But the Dai Li remains loyal to you, Long Feng, sir.
22:55 - 22:58 Hello, Mom?
22:58 - 23:00 Anyone home?
23:05 - 23:07 Hey!
23:07 - 23:09 Who do you think you're dealing with?
23:09 - 23:15 One loudmouthed little brat who strayed too far from home.
23:24 - 23:25 In our hour of need,
23:26 - 23:29 it is with the highest honor that I welcome our esteemed allies,
23:29 - 23:31 the Kyoshi Warriors.
23:32 - 23:36 We are the Earth King's humble servants.
