Things have been heating up in the Avatar: The Last Airbender fandom since Netflix announced we’d not only be getting Season 2 but Season 3 of the series as well. As fans of the animation may know, many things were changed in the Netflix series. We were introduced to some characters earlier than expected. However, there are many things the creators of the live-action still haven’t touched on as of yet.

Here are a few iconic moments in no particular order that we hope get shown in the recently announced Season 2 of the live-action series:

1. The Introduction of “The Blind Bandit”

I absolutely cannot wait to meet Toph Beifong and have her grow up with the rest of the gang. We’ve seen Katara, Aang, and Sokka talk about how they’d be heading to the Earth Kingdom, Omashu, soon because Aang still needs to master the other elements. I do hope the introduction of Toph is just as iconic in the live-action series as it was in the animated version.

I’d love to see a longer fight scene between her and The Boulder, who should be portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Okay, I’m joking, but I’d like to see The Rock portray this character. Everything would tie in great. A lot of fans also seem to enjoy this fan-casting idea, it should be interesting to see what Netflix decides to do when they reveal The Boulder.

I also love the fact that the gang always forgets that Toph is blind, which shows that her blindness isn’t a disability but a strength. Representation matters, and I am hoping we get to see Toph in all her glory in the live-action series as well.

2. Zuko and Iroh Cutting Their Hair

I love Avatar: The Last Airbender and I think they did a wonderful job. However, I hate Zuko’s Ariana Grande high ponytail. While Netflix did a tremendous job replicating this hairstyle, I cannot wait to see Zuko and Iroh cutting their hair. It brings new character growth for Zuko as cutting one’s hair represents letting go of the past and embracing new beginnings. We saw a bit of that growth in Season 1 of The Last Airbender.

3. Iroh Singing Leaves From a Vine

“Tales of Ba Sing Se” is one of the best episodes in the animated series, especially the scene where Iroh honors his son Lu Ten on his birthday by singing to him. It would be criminal not to include this, and I do hope Netflix does justice to this important scene. They did an amazing job in Season 1 giving a backstory of when Iroh lost the war and his son. Now for them to do the same for this iconic but heartbreaking scene.

4. Katara and Zuko in the Crystal Cave

I want to see more happening between Katara and Zuko this season, especially in the Crystal Cave scene. I’m a Zutara fan, and I’d love to see feelings develop between them. It would be poetic as they’re fire and water benders. We did not get this ship in the animation, so I think the creators should consider bringing them together in the live-action version. It would also add some more drama to the series since this is what Netflix is aiming for as well.

Fans have been shipping Zuko and Katara for years, so it would be nice to have these two characters together, at least temporarily, even though we know it won’t last. I am not a fan of Zuko and Mai. I have nothing against the character. I love Mai and I think she’s amazing, but I just never saw any chemistry between her and Zuko. Hopefully, if we do get Zutara, it does not outshine any of the other relationships in the series. Especially as we know they’d eventually break up.

5. Appa getting Kidnapped

This is a storyline I hope Netflix explores. However, I’m not quite sure how they’d rewrite it as they already introduced the Blue Spirit and Wan Shi Tong in Season 1. These two characters were first shown in season 2 when Appa got stolen. Don’t forget that the Blue Spirit was the one who freed Appa. I think this storyline is important because it shows that Aang can experience extreme anger.

Airbenders are pacifists and the anger he felt from losing Appa made him forget all that he learnt. He was willing to kill because of this and it shows you just how human he is. He’s a child who has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Appa is the only thing besides him that’s left of his culture. Losing him brought back extreme trauma for Aang, and I’d like to see the direction the live-action series goes with this if they decide to pursue it.

6. Cactus Juice

I think the entire fandom might be upset if Netflix does not give us the Cactus Juice scene with Sokka. It’s hilarious and it deserves to be shown. It is just a short scene but the comedic relief of it gives a light-hearted approach compared to all the dark elements within the series. Many things happened in Book 2 but lots of fans still remember this scene despite it being so short.

Synopsis (Season 1): Water. Earth. Fire. Air. The four nations once lived in harmony, with the Avatar, master of all four elements, keeping peace between them.
