So first off, we have the lovely Sophie Okonedo as a Cannibal Queen who wants to finally rustle up some meat for her tribe to eat in Queen of the Water-Thieves. Needless to say, this doesn’t exactly cover new ground in the “painted savages” genre- it’s your typical man outsmarts dangerous and exotic tribe by finding one weakness of Queen story.
First off, I have to say that we have some mad bending skills showing up in this episode. Apparently you can use firebending like your own personal jetpack now, or maybe that’s just Iroh being Iroh. Oh, and they’re fighting against Avatarverse biplanes in this episode, with firebending-powered anti-aircraft guns. This is seriously some top-notch worldbuilding.
