Episode 3x09: The Stakeout Teaser Clip (x)

ehillstrom9:

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning Wheaton College prepares devotions for the Chase Service Center crew. They are usually useful quips that help the day go by. However, this past Thursday, the speaker said something that held my attention for the rest of the day:

Republican lawmakers are challenging the Obama administration over a newly announced plan to expand the use of U.S. military bases to house illegal immigrant children, warning that it will put a strain on troops and threaten military readiness.

I’m not buying it.

If year 12 students can realise that refugees have no other means of seeking refuge, I don’t see why the prime minister can’t too.
Asylum seekers, the term is self explanatory. They are seeking asylum away from the corrupt and war torn countries that they live in. Many of them cannot afford to go…

I’ve rewritten the beginning of this rant for about 30 minutes. I wanted to say we need to be nice to the 50,000 illegals, they should be deported, they are going to cost Americans millions, yada, yada.

However, amazingly, you can keep beating a dead horse.

There is a general sense of melancholy throughout the entire episode of “The Blue Spirit”. From the music, to the scenery, there is this pervading sense of sadness. Because Avatar is more episodic than Korra, I had forgotten that this chapter takes place very recently after the events of the storm, and that pervading sadness is Aang and Zuko dealing with the pain of loss. At least, that’s how I felt it. 
Aang feels alone, been that last of his kind, and Zuko is putting every ounce of determination to capture Aang, and recover the family and world he has lost. In fact, the entire episode is Zuko and Aang working together, and actually behaving as friends on the practical sense. You can see Zuko is a different person, but he simply can’t let go to his past. this is more notorious at the end, when he sees the Fire Nation’s flag as he tries to sleep.
