"The Avatar Returns" is the second episode in the first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender.


When Zuko locates the Southern Water Tribe village where Aang had been, he demands the Avatar be surrendered to him. Aang returns into the village, after previously being banished, to surrender himself to Zuko as long as he agrees to leave the village alone. Aboard Zuko's ship, Aang is at Zuko's mercy, but he eventually manages to maneuver away from the guards and to battle Zuko. Katara and Sokka take the flying bison Appa to go after Aang. Aang and his friends manage to defeat Zuko and his subordinates. Katara and Sokka decide to travel with Aang to the North Pole so that Aang can learn Waterbending.
