***I think the real question is Why didn't Zuko call the villagers out on their instant prejudice?

** The Order of the White Lotus is all over the place, all it would take would eb one operative somewhere in the prison to get a message out.

* Was the topic of Zuko's mother never brought up from the night she disappeared up until the Day of Black Sun? I understand that Ozai wouldn't feel obligated to explain anything, but throughout the entire series, Zuko rarely seems to be concerned with her, even though "Zuko Alone" shows that he was something of a MommasBoy when he was young, and he actually started tearing up when Ozai finally revealed that she'd been banished and was still alive. Why didn't Zuko do anything to search for her, especially after he was exiled himself?

** Because the second it became clear the guards couldn't handle the situation the Warden would cut the lines to the gondola. He made it absolutely clear, and even backed it up, that he'd rather die than let any of them escape. Since nobody can get across the boiling lake on their own a mass breakout is doomed to failure. Only a small group that evades detection has any chance.



* How did Iroh manage to send the message to Zuko about his great-grandfather, when he was locked away in prison and doing his best to fool the guards into thinking he was senile and crazy?

* I wasn't quite sure where to put this because it bugs me on so many levels, so here goes: what the hell was going on at the end of "The Chase"? So Azula "surrenders" (and no one sees through it), then she hits [[BadassGrandpa Iroh]] with lightning, who so far was the only person in the series to stand up to her and redirect her lightning, a technique only he knew. When he falls, Aang, Zuko Katara and Toph bend their elements at her(which for Toph really doesn't make much sense). So Azula shields herself with... fire? How does that work? Then the whole WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|and the Planeteers}} nightmare explodes(?!?), Azula disappears, [[YouFailPhysicsForever and the whole town is on fire]]. So, uh, what part of this makes sense?

** My guess is that they can't. Isn't the only time we see something faceless in the spirit world?

* After Zuko kidnapped Aang during the siege on the North Pole, why was Katara and Sokka's first instinct to go out into the storm to look for him, when there was an entire Fire Nation fleet bombarding the city at that very moment? Wouldn't they have expected him to take Aang back to the ships?

** In the warden's defense, he knew that Azula had gotten onto the gondola somehow, since she wasn't on it when they left. He could just figure that she'd be able to get off the same way. And, again, if the gondola goes down, he's going down with it. Ozai can't punish him if he's dead.

* How has the Boiling Rock managed to maintain a 0% escape record? It's stated to be the highest-security prison in the Fire Nation, meaning only the highest-security prisoners get sent there, and judging by the riot scene, a good number of them seem to be firebenders. This is the earthbending scene from the movie all over again - it looks like the prisoners would have an easy enough time rallying together for the purpose of a mass breakout, so why don't they just do that?

* In "The Boiling Rock," why didn't the escapees just knock the warden out to ensure he wouldn't interfere with their plan? Was there anything that required him to be conscious the entire time?
