Avatar Day - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the village leader switches the wheel of punishment to Community Service, it is on the space next to Boiled in Oil. However, all of the other shots of the wheel have another section in between these two.

Sozin's Comet (1): The Phoenix King - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Aang is waking up on the giant lion turtle, he is not wearing shoes in the first shot, but in the next shot, he is.

The Southern Raiders - S3-E16

Other mistake: When Azula attacks the Western Air Temple, there is a close up shot of her when she says that she is about to become an only child. Pay attention to the smoke coming from the airship behind her, especially above her head: it doesn't move. Even if this was remotely possible, it does move when the camera zooms out, making it a mistake nonetheless.

The Library - S2-E10

Trivia: Wan Shi Tong is of one the few things in this show that is not a reference to Asian cultures, but to Ancient Greece instead. In their mythology owls were the symbol of wisdom and their goddess of wisdom, Athena, was often depicted with an owl.

The Cave of Two Lovers - S2-E2

Iroh: Where are we going to go? We are enemies of the Earth Kingdom, and fugitives from the Fire Nation.
Zuko: If the Earth Kingdom discovers us, we'll be killed.
Iroh: But if the Fire Nation discovers us, we'll be turned over to Azula.
[Iroh and Zuko give each other a meaningful look.]
Zuko: Earth Kingdom it is.

The Ember Island Players - S3-E17

Sokka: Listen to this: The Boy in the Iceberg is a new production from acclaimed playwriter Pu Won Tin. He scowered the globe gathering information on the Avatar. From the icy south pole to the heart of Ba Sing Se. His sources include singing nomads, pirates, prisoners of war and a surprisingly knowlegable merchant of cabbage.

The Avatar and the Firelord - S3-E6

Question: At the end of Sozin's story, he says that he wiped out the Airtemple, and we see one burning. But it isn't one of the four they visited during the three seasons. The Western Airtemple hangs from the cliff, the Northern and Southern both are on one solitary peak and it doesn't have the distinctive bridges of the Eastern Airtemple. Is it ever explained or shown which one it is in Sozin's story?

Friso94

Chosen answer: When Sozin says "So I wiped out the Air Temples, " we are indeed seeing the three mountains of the Eastern Air Temple burning, with the two bridges being gone in this shot (S3-E6). This does conflict a bit with the image we see of the Eastern Air Temple, with the two bridges intact, when Aang and Appa fly to that Air Temple seeking Guru Pathik (S2-E19). This may possibly be considered a mistake, but the fact is that when we are seeing the burning of the Eastern Air Temple it's from the point of view of Zuko, who is merely reading from Sozin's autobiographical account, and envisioning everything he's reading, which in his mind includes the bridges having been destroyed.

Question: In the episode "The Ember Island Players," is there an inside joke or added meaning to the names that worked on the "play"? The "surprisingly informed cabbage merchant" is obvious, but besides that.

Chosen answer: The pirates are from the episodes "The Waterbending Scroll" and "The Waterbending Master" (They're the ones Katara stole the scroll from). The traveling musicians are from "The Cave of Two Lovers. The prisoners of war likely refer to the Kyoshi Warriors, the men of the Southern Water Tribe, and possibly Bumi and the other citizens of Omashu.
