Added DiffLines:

* GirlfriendInCanada: Sokka ''has'' kissed a girl—you've just never met her.

** Sometimes, it helps to listen to your instincts. At the same time, [[RealityEnsues your insticts may be wrong on occasion]].


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Early in the episode, Sokka is convinced that a good leader should have obedient followers. But when he questions the Freedom Fighters' willingness to drown an Earth Kingdom village at Jet's say-so, and they answer that they've ''always'' obeyed Jet without question, Sokka responds that Jet has much to learn if he thinks that's how one should lead.


Added DiffLines:

* ShadowArchetype: For both Jet ''and'' his Freedom Fighters. While Jet is everything Sokka envies about being a leader (charismatic, respectable, authoritative), he's also embodies his worst qualities magnified (his hatred towards the Fire Nation, his belief that everything he does is for the best). On the other hand, the Freedom Fighters' blind faith in Jet mirrors what Sokka previously wanted (Aang and Katara listening obediently to him).


* AnAesop: Aang learns that when fighting with someone for the same cause, you cannot expect them to fight with the same methods or for the same reasons.

** No single person is good or bad based on the nation they come from. This is noticeably the first episode in which the Fire Nation is not presented in a villainous context, with an old man helping Sokka and the Fire Nation authorities evacuating the village when they are convinced that the people truly are in danger if they don't.


* InopportuneVoiceCracking: When Sokka tries to assert himself as the leader of the gang at the beginning of the episode, Katara laughs and says his voice is still cracking. Which it does as he's indignantly denying it.

* ImplausibleDeniability: Sokka insists that he ''has'' kissed a girl, only Katara hasn't met her. The only other girls in their village were either middle-aged or children, and there was literally ''no one'' in the South Pole she hasn't met.

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: While the Fire Nation officials initially don't believe Sokka's warning, when the old man vouches for him, they waste no time evacuating the village.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: The Freedom Fighters' hideout is similar to the Lost Boys' hideout in ''Film/{{Hook}}'', and Jet is similar to the character Rufio (played by Dante Basco, Zuko's voice actor).
