Jet - S1-E10

Character mistake: When Jet tells Katara and Aang to waterbend the water from underground in the geysers, Katara states that she has never waterbent on water she couldn't see before. However, six episodes prior to this, in 'The Warriors of Kyoshi', she waterbends the water out from Aang's lungs to save his life.

Suggested correction: That was a moment of desperation on her part, and she probably doesn't think of it/think she can do it again without the same desperate impetus, Furthermore, the water in Aang was only a small amount and very close anyway.

Regardless of if she did it in desperation or not, she did use bending on water she didn't see. The mistake isn't suggesting anything about Katara's ability to waterbend unseen water, the mistake is only in regards to the statement Katara made about never using bending on water she can't see. And for Katara to forget the one time she used bending on water she didn't see would qualify as a character mistake as well. Now if she made the statement "I don't think I can do this" or "I've never used bending on underground water", etc, that would not be a character mistake.

Suggested correction: You sure that was the same ship, and what's 5-10 years give or take compared to Gran-Gran's life anyway?

Bitter Work - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Iroh draws the symbols of the Four Nations in the sand, there is grass on the left side of the Earth symbol in the close ups. In the shots that show all four symbols, the grass is gone. (00:14:25)

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 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.
