Added DiffLines:

** Azula's treatment of the captain not only showcases her control freak nature, but foreshadows the nature of her eventual villainous breakdown in the finale where she starts banishing any servants and advisors who disagree or make a slight mistake. The "one hair out of place" moment is another, at the start of her breakdown after the Boiling Rock incident, Azula starts caring a lot less about how controlled she is in combat and her hair comes down more often to showcase her instability.

* BerserkButton: Harm Katara - or even just pretend to harm her - and you're guaranteed to get Aang into the Avatar State.

* KingpinInHisGym: To emphasize how dangerous she is, we witness Azula practicing her lightning technique (the first time we've seen anyone shooting lightning).

* HeliumSpeech: Aang while riding an air scooter after drinking some Chi-enhancing tea.
-->"Is it working? Is it working? I can't tell! Somebody tell me if I'm in the Avatar State 'cause I don't have a good view of myself! Am I talking too loud?"

-->'''Zuko'''



* BitchInSheepsClothing: Azula tries to convince Zuko to come home, being unnaturally pleasant towards him. Then Iroh tries to weigh in with his opinion, and she snaps at him.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Azula tries to convince Zuko to come home, being unnaturally pleasant towards him. Then Iroh tries to weigh in with his opinion, and she snaps at him. Of course, even when she's trying to be nice, much of her usual unpleasantness shines through. Zuko's just so distracted by her manipulations he doesn't even notice.


Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Iroh fights off pretty much all of Azula's guard by himself, in less than a minute.


Added DiffLines:

** Then her practicing establishes her perfectionist streak. Just ''one'' hair out of place is enough to piss her off.


Added DiffLines:

* FemmeFatalons: Azula's nails, demonstrated when she first meets Zuko and Iroh, get used during her fight with Zuko, scratching him on the head.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: After Aang's been calmed down, General Fong (who has learnt nothing) suggests trying to find a way to control the Avatar State. Of course, Roku's display back during ''The Winter Solstice'' shows it could be controlled, Aang just doesn't know how... yet.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Fong might well be going too far, but the Fire Nation is coming close to winning the war, and Aang is the only person at this point who could stop them, if he knew how.
* KickTheDog: Zuko says several very unkind things to Iroh when he tries to point out the situation isn't what it seems, accusing Iroh of being lazy (well...), untrusting and ''jealous'' of his younger brother.


Added DiffLines:

** Before that, the guard who accidentally called Zuko and Iroh "prisoners", when he realises what he just said.


Added DiffLines:

** At the end of the episode, when Azula declares Zuko and Iroh traitors, along with anyone who aids them, the two spa workers who'd tended to them at the beginning of the episode are seen panicking.

* ProperlyParanoid: Iroh also finds it unbelievable that Ozai would want them back.

* ProperlyParanoid: Iroh also finds it unbelievable that Ozai would want them back. He's right, and he knows well enough that his brother would never regret anything.

* GRatedDrug: The "chi-enhancing tea" that sends Aang into a babbling speed-freak frenzy.

Back at the base, General Fong is elated and unburies Katara. However, The Avatar State still perceives a threat to Aang and levels half the fortress with a single earthbending attack to neutralize it, hurting many of the soldiers.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In [[TheAce Azula's]] [[ShockAndAwe lightingbending]] [[EstablishingCharacterMoment practice]], [[CreepyTwins Li and Lo]] tell her that she did: "Almost perfect" because she had "Just one hair out of place". Azula has a mild freak out, saying that: "Almost perfect isn't good enough." [[spoiler: Later, when she's had her VillainousBreakdown because she was 'almost perfect' (she wasn't able to anticipate Mai and Ty Lee's, and later her father's, betrayal), what's [[ImportantHaircut one of the casualties]]?]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Azula''': "Alright hair, it's time to meet your doom!"]]
