Avatar: The Last Airbender “Avatar Day” (part 3 of 3)
And now for the single worst moment of the episode. After the mayor simply says the Avatar killed Chin, Aang begins his rebuttal. And I’ll just transcribe it verbatim to give the full effect.
Aang: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m about to tell you what really happened. And I will prove it with facts. Fact number one: Uh… [Sokka reminds him about the footprint] Oh, right. You see, I have very large feet. [pan down to his tiny feet] Furthermore, your temple matches your statue. But I was in a painting at sunset, so there you have it. I’m not guilty!
This really just makes me hate Aang, seeing as how his friends went to all that trouble finding evidence for him, and he lets it all go to waste by refusing to explain it in a way anyone can understand. Thanks for making a good chunk of the episode completely pointless, Aang. And we go out on a “comedy” cut to Sokka and Katara’s faces as they take in how much Aang has screwed the pooch.
