!!Tropes:



* ShutUpKiss: Sokka gives one to Suki at the end.
-->'''Sokka''': You talk too much.
-->([[KissingDiscretionShot then the camera pans up]])


Added DiffLines:

-->([[KissingDiscretionShot then the camera pans up]])

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: Aang has foregone caring and hoping to find Appa whilst Sokka is being overprotective of Suki. Both are struggling with their respective losses (Appa/Yue) and both have to learn to reach a balance between caring too little and caring too much.

Added DiffLines:

* HesBack: A heartwarming variation. For a great deal of the episode, Aang is going through some serious emotional withdrawal after the events of "The Desert", from pretending he doesn't care about finding Appa anymore to believing that it's best to "Abandon hope". But after witnessing the couple's baby be born, Aang is moved to tears and finds the inner-strength to embrace his feelings for the people he cares about again.


* ThreeMonthOldNewborn: You would think that with the freedom of animation there was chance to actually depict a newborn the way they are but even here the baby looks like three month old.

Added DiffLines:

* CatchAndReturn: Aang volleys the fire bomb back to the Fire Nation ship.
* ChekhovsGunman: The pregnant woman and her partner were first seen in "Zuko Alone" as a random couple Zuko encounters on his way.



* {{Fainting}}: Sokka faints while observing the birth-giving.



* HeyWait: Subverted when it turns out that the guard stopping Sokka on his way out is actually Suki.
* JustHitHim: The serpent does a MightyRoar instead of actually attacking the group when they are right in front of the creature.



* MaternityCrisis: There is a pregnant woman present so she must give birth in this episode.
* NonIndicativeName: In-universe. Sokka assumes the Serpent's Pass is misnamed because it's not windy. Little does he know [[SeaMonster what "Serpent" stands for]].



* OnSecondThought: Toph initially refuses to use the ice path that Katara built to cross the strait but then the Serpent is right on her tail and she quickly changes her mind.



* PovertyFood: Suko complains about the rotten food he has to endure as a refugee.



* RidiculouslyDifficultRoute: The Serpent's Pass is a tight path with a SeaMonster lying in wait.



* SharkFinOfDoom: The first thing we see of the Serpent is its fin.



* ShutUpKiss: Sokka gives one to Suki at the end.
-->'''Sokka''': You talk too much.
-->([[KissingDiscretionShot then the camera pans up]])



* TearsOfJoy: Aang sheds them when seeing the new-born baby.
-->'''Aang''': I've been going through a really hard time lately. But you've made me hopeful again.



* ThreeMonthOldNewborn: You would think that with the freedom of animation there was chance to actually depict a newborn the way they are but even here the baby looks like three month old.



* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Here comes the Avatar, everybody, on his way to find and save Appa. What could possibly get in the way of his journey? Wait, what's that next to the wall of Ba Sing Se?

Added DiffLines:

* EmbarrassingRescue: Toph after she fell into the ocean, and Suki fishes her out.
--> '''Toph:''' Oh Sokka! You saved me! ''(Unknowingly kisses Suki's cheek)''
--> '''Suki:''' Actually... it's me.
--> '''Toph:''' ''({{Beat}})'' Oh... well... ah hah... you can go ahead and let me drown now...


* {{Bifauxnen}}: Smellerbee is offended at Iroh's implication she's a boy.


Added DiffLines:

* LadyLooksLikeADude: Smellerbee is offended at Iroh's implication she's a boy.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack:
-->'''Jet:''' [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderJet "I've done some things in my past that I'm not proud of, but that's why I'm going to Ba Sing Se: for a new beginning. A second chance."]]
-->'''Zuko:''' [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderZukoAlone "I've realized lately that being on your own isn't always the best path."]]


Still reeling from the loss of Appa ([[BlatantLies although Aang ''insists'' he's fine]]), the gang realizes that they will need to take a ferry to get to Ba Sing Se instead of just flying. However, a young couple, one of whom is pregnant, has their passports stolen, so is not allowed on the ferry. Our heroes promise to help them across the treacherous [[TitleDrop "Serpent's Pass"]]; they're also joined by [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderTheWarriorsOfKyoshi Suki]], who's been helping with the war effort. Zuko and Iroh, who ''do'' take the ferry, and meet another familiar face in the form of [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderJet Jet]]; together they help 'liberate' some food.

-->'''Suki:''' Actually, it's me.
-->'''Toph:''' Oh. ... you can let me drown now.
