([{Watch the episode until Roku says he sees Aang is lost in more ways than one.}]) Aang talks to Roku's spirit Aang said, "I am . I need to figure out what I'm going to do when I face Ozai."

([{Watch the episode until Toph, Zuko, and Suki look at their two friends, puzzled.}])

Back on the island, Aang said, "Everyone expects me to take Ozai's life and it would be my pleasure, but that goes everything I learned from the monks."

Roku said, "In my life I tried to be disciplined and show restraint."

([{Watch the episode until Kuruk's conversation with Aang is finished.}])

Appa and the group are still walking until they come inside a campsite with sheltered tents everywhere.

Katara and Sokka both said, "Dad!" at the same time.

There was Hakoda at the opening of a sheltered tent. He smiled lovingly as his son and daughter approached. Katara and Sokka hugged their father.

Katara said, "How did you get here? What happened?"

Hakoda said, "After Azula attacked us at the Western Air Temple, we travelled in the airship back to the Fire Nation. When we were camping, Iroh found us. He recongized the Earth Kingdom garments and he knew some of us weren't Fire Nation."

Sokka said, "You met Iroh."

Hakoda said, "Yes. I knew he was a traitor to the Fire Nation and therefore a powerful ally against the Fire Lord. He asked us if we could use our airship to take him to the Earth Kingdom.

Katara said, "So, Haru's here. And Teo. And the Duke."

Hakoda said, "Haru and Teo didn't want to leave their fathers in the Fire Nation so, they stayed behind. The Duke didn't want to leave Pipsqueak either so, he stayed too. I didn't know where you two were so, I decided to go with Iroh. And so we travelled and here we are now."

Sokka said, "And Chit Sang?"

Hakoda said, "He split up with us long before. He's back in the Fire Nation, living in hiding. Iroh and I are the only ones here. Along with many old men."

Bumi and the others caught up with the two happy siblings.

He said, "That's right. Welcome to old people camp."

Zuko said, "Where...where is he?"

Piandao said, "Your uncle's in there, Prince Zuko."

He pointed to a big sheltered tent at the end of the campsite.

([{Watch the episode until Yangchen's conversation with Aang is finished.}])

Aang smiled as he addressed Momo.

Aang said, "Everyone including all my past lives are expecting me to end Ozai's life, Momo. And now I now I can do it."

At the Order of the White Lotus's campsite, Zuko was still sitting beside his snoring uncle in the latter's tent. Iroh stopped snoring and started to get up.

([{Watch the episode until Zuko insists Iroh to fight Ozai, except that Hakoda is sitting with the two of them and their four companions.}])

Iroh said, "Even if I did defeat Ozai and I don't know if I could, history will only remember it as more senseless violence – a brother killing a brother to grab power. The only way for this war to end peacefully is for the Avatar to defeat the Fire Lord."

Toph said, "But what if Aang doesn't come back."

Hakoda said, "Sozin's Comet is coming, and our destinies are upon us. Aang will face Ozai."

Iroh said, "When I was a boy, I had a vision that I would one day take Ba Sing Se. Now only do I realize that it is my destiny to take it back from the Fire Nation so the Earth King can set his people free again."

Suki said, "That's why you gathered the members of the White Lotus."

Iroh said, "That's right."

Hakoda said, "And, I'll help you, General Iroh. I left my village and my children for the Earth Kingdom to help fight against the Fire Nation. I'll help you take back Ba Sing Se."

Sokka said, "But what about us, what's our destiny today?"

Hakoda said, "What do you think it is, son?"

Sokka said, "I think even though we don't know where Aang is, we need to do everything we can to stop the Navy and the Airship Fleet."

Toph said, "So that when Aang does face Ozai, we'll be there for him."

Zuko asked his uncle, "And then will you come back and assume the throne."

Iroh said, "No, that would fulfill my father's evil wishes. We cannot fulfill Fire Lord Azulon's desire for me, his firstborn, to sit on his throne. Someone new must ascend the throne. Someone my father would never have allowed. Someone who is the rightful heir to the current Fire Lord. An idealist with a pure heart and unquestionable honor. It must be you, Prince Zuko."

Zuko said, "Unquestionable honor. But, I've made so many mistakes."

Hakoda said, "Yes, you have. You've struggled, you've suffered. But, you've always followed your own path. You've restored your own honor. And only you can restore the honor of the Fire Nation."

Zuko said, "I'll try, Sir."

Iroh smiled proudly.

Everyone made ready to depart. Piandao briefed Sokka.

Piandao said, "The airship base is on a small island just off the Earth Kingdom shore. You should be able to intercept the fleet within a day's journey."

Sokka said, "Thank you, Master."

He and Piandao bowed to each other. Sokka hugged Piandao by the waist and Piandao lowered his arm to Sokka's shoulders. Sokka and Katara hugged their father.

Sokka said, "Dad, please be careful."

Hakoda said, "I will, son. You two be careful too."

Katara said, "We will, Dad."

The team of heroes mounted Appa. Hakoda and various members of the Order of the White Lotus came to send off Appa and his five passengers.

Zuko asked his uncle "So, if I'm going to Fire Lord after the war's over, what are you going to do?"

Iroh said, "After I reconquer Ba Sing Se, I am going to reconquer my teashop. And I will play Pai Sho everyday."

Zuko smiled at him.

Katara said, "Goodbye, Dad. Goodbye, General Iroh."

Iroh said, "Goodbye, everyone. Today, destiny is our friend. I know it."

Appa slams his tail on the ground and flies off. Hakoda and the old men waved goodbye as Appa soared away.

Back in the ocean, the Lion Turtle still made its way toward the mountains on the western edge of the Earth Kingdom.

([{Watch the episode until Aang bows before the Lion Turtle.}])

Aang said, "Why did you bring me here? What is this all about?"

The Lion Turtle merely replied, "The true mind can weather all the lies and illusions without being lost. The true heart can touch the poison of hatred without being harmed. Since beginningless time, darkness thrives in the void, but always yields to purifying light."

On his last word the Lion Turtle touched Aang's forehead and chest with two of its claws. Shining green light emitted from the touch as comprehension dawned on Aang's face.

([{Watch the episode until Aang gets ready to fight Ozai.}])

At his Airship Base, Ozai looked over at the defeated but rebellious world outside the Fire Nation.

Ozai said, "It's time for this world, this moon, and this ocean to end in fire and for a new world with no moon and no ocean to be born from the ashes."

Sozin's Comet entered the planet's horizon. Ozai stood calmly within its gaze.
