|The invasion is starting earlier than I expected... Ktarra/Sakka's dad brought together a team of benders from earlier episodes that have helped them before... |
The water benders put up a giant fog to hide their fleet as they approached... to get under the gate of fire, they used subs that they controlled with water bending to go underneath it, while the ships stayed behind with nobody on them to fool the guards... Ktarra swam through with Appa, putting an air bubble around his head. Aang shaved his head, put his old clothes back on, and got a new staff/glider. Before Aang left to fight on his own, he kissed Ktarra, because he wasn't sure if he'd return.
Zukko's uncle, who had been secretly training in prison, knew about the day of the black sun invasion also. He told the lady who treated him nicely that she should go home for the day, to avoid getting her into trouble.
The earthbenders rode in tanks and just crushed everything... Sakka's dad got knocked out of commission, and Ktarra couldn't heal him quickly enough, so Sakka took over as leader of the invasion.. Meanwhile, Aang stormed into the fire lord's palace, but it was completely empty.
Aang returns to the fleet to come up with a different plan... Taf leads him and Sakka through an underground volcano tunnel leading to a hidden bunker. What they find isn't the fire lord Ozai, but the princess Azula instead...
Zukko finally realizes his true purpose, and he walks into his father's true hiding chamber. He tells the fire lord the truth about how Azula is the one who took down the avatar, not him. Then when told to get out, Zukko says he's not taking orders from him anymore...
Azula isn't as defenseless as they think... she still has Dai-lee soldiers working for her (the conspirators from the earth city Ba Sing Se).. she successfully distracts them until the eclipse is over, while Zukko has already started fighting Ozai.
