* Remember when Zuko passed out and slept for four days? Sure, he's catching up on lost sleep, but he's probably also recovering from that dislocated shoulder. We last saw him falling off of a cliff. Assuming that the Avatar planet has around the same mass as Earth, he's accelerating at a rate of 32 feet per second squared. So every second he falls, he's falling 32 feet per second ''faster than the second before''. As he's falling, he has time to say "Aang, I don't--", which means that he's been falling for about a second and a half already. Moreover, he's falling face-first, meaning that when Aang catches him by the wrist, the rest of his body continues to drop, while his arm remains fixed. Estimating that Zuko is around six feet tall, and weighs 178 pounds, the resulting momentum is makes it surprising that Aang is even able to maintain his grasp on Zuko's wrist in the first place, and definitely enough to yank an arm out of its socket.

** Another alternative is that Sokka simply got up and looked for it. Given his impressive calculative ability he could have figured out its approximate location and started looking for it there.

* Yu Dao is a hundred years old - '''''the''''' oldest colony, established by Fire Lord Sozin, perhaps the very one Roku broke up during "The Avatar And The Fire Lord", and the only one seen which has both Firebenders and Earthbenders, unlike Haru's village where they are imprisoned on identification, or Gaipan(the village Jet flooded) where there are no Earthbenders at ''all''. What if "colonies" like Yu Dao are what Sozin intended from ''day one'' - a way of "sharing the Fire Nation's prosperity with the world?" The only problem was, ''Roku wouldn't even look at it!'' The United Republic of Nations might have come about a century and a half earlier if only Roku and Sozen talked like grown-ups instead of children who stole each other's toys.

** Yeah, except Sozin wasn't advocating peaceful trade or cultural exchange; he was foisting the Fire Nation's prosperity onto the other nations whether they wanted it or not as a transparent excuse to grab power, and the whole shtick about "sharing" was just a flimsy cover to get Roku to go along with it on the strength of their friendship. The "brilliance" would be in the fact that Sozin's flimsy excuse was what actually ended up coming out of it once peace had been achieved.

* So why might Zuko have gone to former EvilOverlord [[AbusiveParents Ozai]] for advice on running the country, rather than the only remaining member of his family who actually cares about him? Well, Zuko ''did'' go to Iroh for advice when ''he'' was the one in prison, back during the [=TV=] series, and his uncle refused to talk to him. Ozai, on the other hand, offered advice without even being asked--albeit at a cost. Maybe Zuko figured that it was Ozai or nothing, and he might as well take his chances.
