    More book 2 speculation! I loved this podcast, good work!

    Oh and I have book 2 speculation questions: Do you guys think we will get 2 new villains this book like we do with every other book? (Zhao/Zuko, Azula/Long Feng and Ozai/Combustion Man and more Azula). What two new characters are you most excited to see get developed and why?

    Sweet, that sorts out next weeks Book 2 speculation question 🙂

    (Don’t forget Tarrlok & Amon/Noahtok from LoK Season 1.)
    It might the Dark Spirit & Unalaq, Korra’s uncle.

    AJ, of course! Who could forget the blood-bending bros ;)?

    I’m thinking the same thing too, but honestly it seems to obvious that those are the villains. I’m guessing that if either of them are baddies, there is a far more powerful Spirit in the background manipulating everything.

    On the contrary, Koh seems like the more obvious choice when it comes to naming supernatural enemies.

    @azulaalwayslies it took me a while to realize that there were 2 villains in each book, (in book 1 of LOK it was amon/tarrlok) i wonder who will be the villain(s)…

    Reply

    Azulan Reply:

    @airavatara Do you think there might be a human/spirit villain duo? Like Unalaq or however you spell his name, as well as the Dark Spirit :)?

    Reply

    Avatar Yangchen Reply:

    that would be interesting to see, i think thats probably what will happen. i can see unalaq being a villai, but it could really be any character that we know or dont know yet.

    AJ Reply:

    It could be Unalaq’s children. (They seem to give off the same creepy vibe as the twins from ‘The Shining’.)

    I love avatar origin speculation. Good to hear some at the start of this episode.
    My theory is that some cataclysm threw the elements out of control. Earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters threatened the planet. An energy bender somehow combined the powers of the early elemental benders to save the planet. The spirit world made the spirit reincarnate.

    Either that, or an energy bender stole elemental powers, making the first avatar a villain.

    I have to say, the openings for season 2 and 3 are probably among my favorite episodes. They both did such a great job in getting me excited for the rest of the season, with dramatic elements that completely made sense in regards to the endings of the previous seasons without being predictable. I liked that Aang didn’t really immediately go back to his usual happy, carefree self, and you really see the aftermath of what happened at the end of the previous season, his sense of guilt and physical challenges.

    The development in terms of Katara’s relationship with her father was another thing that was also probably one of my favorite aspects of the episode, in that you really didn’t understand at first why she was acting the way she was toward him, and when it comes out, I think as Kelly said it wasn’t something that we might have expected, but it made complete sense, and helped further that sense of how family is such an important thing for Katara. (I also liked how in the confrontation with Hakoda, it wasn’t just her accusing him of doing something wrong, as she keeps talking, you realize she does understand why he left, but she still has this emotional reaction that she just can’t help, and it really takes talking it out to kind of work through it.)

    The scene between Zuko and Ozai, and then Zuko and Azula—the first one was really interesting in that you see Ozai as an actually person, rather than just a face in shadow. Hearing him speak to Zuko like this makes him more of a person, rather than more of an idea, as he has been throughout the show. (I remember watching it for the first time, and really sort of feeling the pressure that Zuko feels, that even though he’s being praised, he’s still afraid of doing something wrong, or saying the wrong thing, because Ozai is such an intimidating presence and has proven so quick to turn on him.)

    The scene with Zuko and Azula—completely agree with what was said here, it’s so powerful in the sense that it gets across just how smart Azula really is, and just how cruel she can be. (When I first saw this scene for the first time, when Azula first tells Zuko that she told Ozai what she did because Zuko seemed so worried about Ozai not accepting him, I remember feeling the same way as Zuko, pretty much certain she was lying, but as baffled as Zuko as to why. And when she explains the real reason—not only does it make complete sense and demonstrates Azula’s foresight, but the scene is just so chilling in the way that Azula really seems to take delight in this situation she’s put Zuko. As I think Kelly said, Zuko has been waiting to return to the Fire Nation and have his place restored, and Azula knows it, but on this pretense of helping him she finds a way to torment him, and she just enjoys herself doing it.)

    But, anyway. Here’s a point of trivia I don’t think was mentioned, and I didn’t see it on the Avatar wiki:

    When they’re on the Fire Nation ship, and Hakoda goes to speak to I think it was the captain of the other actual Fire Nation ship, the Fire Nation men mention Admiral Chan. Hakoda (or maybe it was the other guy, was that Bato? I can’t remember) answer that Admiral Chan had sent them separate orders from the rest of the fleet, and it’s the fact that Admiral Chan is apparently on leave that tips off the enemy that something is not right.

    I’m guessing that this Admiral Chan is Chan’s father from The Beach, since Chan mentions that his dad is an Admiral. (I thought that was a funny little connection I didn’t pick up on until maybe the second time I watched the series. x3)
