The main parallel throughout the series has been Aang and Zuko’s stories, and that parallel continues in Season 3. In “The Awakening,” Aaron Ehasz, the writer of the episode, did a great job of thematically tying all the stories together. The scene when Katara breaks down in front of her father is one of my favorite moments of the season--the writing, acting, and animation are fantastic. She seems to be angry with Aang for leaving, but really she’s been harboring all this resentment and anger at her father for leaving her years ago and it all comes out in that moment.
