"The Southern Air Temple" is the third episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender.


Due to an interest in reliving his old memories, Aang suggests a visit to the Southern Air Temple. He tells stories of his old mentor, Monk Gyatso, as well as sports and games that Airbenders used to play. At the temple, Aang finds a flying lemur, whom he names Momo. When he learns the truth about how the Fire Nation had raided his home, Aang becomes angry and enters the Avatar State. Meanwhile, because his ship was damaged by Aang in the previous episode, Zuko needs to stop at a docking area to have it repaired. There, he and his uncle run into Commander Zhao, who manages to learn that the Avatar has been found. Zuko then challenges Zhao to a duel over the right to track the Avatar, which Zuko wins. Zhao tries to kill Zuko after Zuko turns his back on Zhou, though Iroh stops the attack in time.
