Though spirits may be invisible, the path of the fireflies will take you to them.
And so, Aang connected with his four previous lives: Roku, Kyoshi, Kuruk, and Yangchen. He found Roku in the fire swamp. He found Kyoshi in the forest. He found Yangchen on a high mountain. And he found Kuruk in the Realm of Koh.
Kuruk explained what happened to his wife, Ummi. How Koh stole her face because of his past mistakes.
That is why Aang swore to Kuruk that he would end Koh. For good. But to do that, he would have to destroy Jet.
Jet sat atop a throne of platinum.
"My friends, Longshot and Smellerbee. How long has it been?"
Both of them were speechless. Both of them had stood by Jet's side until the moment he was dead. To see him alive...meant everything.
Smellerbee ran up to Jet and gave him a tight hug. They stood there for about a minute. Longshot walked up the steps to Jet's throne. They nodded at each other, then smiled.
"Jet...how?" Smellerbee asked.
"You wouldn't believe me if I told you..."
"Have you found Katara?" Longshot asked.
In the Spirit World, Jet's spirit banged on a wooden door. A door to a prison inside a large, hollow tree.
"Koh! Koh! Let me out of here! The deal's off!"
Aang woke up in a metal box.
"Hello? Anyone there?"
"Aang!" a familiar voice yelled.
"Katara! Where are you?"
"I'm...in cell. I would waterbend my way out, but he bound my arms and legs."
"Jet! Where is he? Do you know?"
"He took over the city! He captured us all, and he's using Air Temple Island as his castle!"
"Katara, what happened after Jet firebended?"
"We were all in shock. We were surprised too much to do anything. Talk. Move. Except for Toph, of course. You were in the Avatar State when Jet hit your wound that Azula gave you. It wasn't strong enough to kill you, but..."
"I still fell."
"Katara, listen to me. Koh, the Facestealer, is possessing Jet! That's how he could firebend. It's all a part of his plan to-"
A vision cut off Aang's voice. He saw a huge, hollow tree. And inside it, Jet, banging on the door. He was screaming, "Koh!"
"No, I...uh, haven't heard from her," Jet said.
"I thought everyone was staying here," Smellerbee said.
"I guess they...left?"
"Jet, what's going on?" Smellerbee asked.
"What? What makes you think something's going on? Nothing's going on!"
Longshot readied an arrow and pointed it at Jet.
"Longshot!" Jet exclaimed.
He let the arrow fly.
And so Jet did what he had to do. He sent a blast of fire at the arrow, destroying it into a million pieces.
"What?!?!" Longshot and Smellerbee exclaimed.
