Recap: Avatar: The Last Airbender "The Day of Black Sun, Part 2"
"I am going to speak my mind and you are going to listen!"

Aang reveals to the others that the city has been evacuated, and they quickly conclude that the invasion is a trap. Even so, Sokka and Aang aren't willing to give up, and, surmising that the Fire Lord is still in the city, they decide to continue with the invasion. Aang, Sokka, and Toph head out to find the bunker the Fire Lord is hiding in, but are instead met by Azula. Meanwhile, Zuko confronts his father in another part of the bunker.

Tropes:

  • Badass Normal: Azula is definitely this without her firebending.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Ozai and Azula are still in power at the end of the episode, and with the exception of its young members, the whole of the invasion force is taken prisoner.
  • Berserk Button: Sokka loses it when Azula taunts him about Suki's capture. For context, he knew she was taunting everyone to get them to run out the clock and he still lost control.
  • Berserker Tears: Sokka gets these when he loses it.
  • Blatant Lies: "I am a 400-foot tall purple platypus-bear with pink horns and silver wings."
  • Brought Down to Normal: The Firebenders.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Zuko to Ozai, while they're both depowered.
  • Consummate Liar: Azula. She even impresses Living Lie Detector Toph with the afore mentioned Blatant Lie.
  • Darkest Hour: Has the second cruelest Downer Ending of the entire series.
  • Downer Ending: Mostly. The Invasion failed, the troops are imprisoned, and Aang and friends have to flee... but Zuko's good now!
  • Elaborate Underground Base: The bunker beneath the Fire Nation capital.
  • Exact Words: The minister told Aang, Sokka, and Toph where the Firelord's bunker was. He said nothing about Ozai himself.
  • Field Power Effect: The solar eclipse stops firebending from working while the sun is completely blocked.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Zuko finally makes one.
  • Magitek: The tanks are propelled by bending and steered mechanically.
  • My Defense Need Not Protect Me Forever: Azula stalls the heroes until her firebending returns.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Zuko goes to rescue Iroh from prison—and when he gets there, he finds out that Iroh has already busted out by himself, having turned into a "one-man army" and torn down the bars of his cell.
  • Oh Crap: First the war balloons appear...and then come the zeppelins.
  • Pet the Dog: One of the Fire Nation soldiers on guard in the prison brings Iroh extra food and treats him kindly. Because of this, he makes sure to tell her to take the day off on the day he's planning to break out and kill any soldiers who attempt to stop him.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!:
    Sokka: Where?! Is?! Suki?!
  • Total Eclipse of the Plot
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: Zuko telling his father that the Fire Nation has been terrorizing the world, that his scarring was not justified in any sense of the word, and that he will regain his own honor by joining the Avatar and helping him end the war.
  • Zeppelins from Another World
