Can we talk about how Katara should have ended up with Zuko? I just rewatched the series and am frustrated all over again.

It ruins Aangs arc I think to do that, since his was contingent on the struggle between forgoing worldly attachments to do his duty, and keeping what makes him human. His struggle to balance his own needs, his air bender identity and status as the avatar.

Idk if Zuko needed a romantic interest, but ugh not mai please

Yeah not Mai pls

Nah if they took Katara away from Aang, at the end you would have been left thinking Aang’s reward for saving the world is that he gets to live the rest of his life celibate while his former enemy takes his girl. Thaaaat’s depressing.

Plot twist: zuko and tai li

like

Not this old thing again! This is based on a stupid rom com trope. A girl disliking a guy does not mean that she’s secretly in love with him. Katara felt sorry for Zuko but never had romantic feelings for him.

There is way more relationship development between Aang and Katara. It was just very PG (since this was a children’s show).
- Katara got jealous of the attention Aang was getting from girls as early as Kyoshi Island.
- Their relationship is based on mutual respect and affection.
- Katara liked Aang too early on but didn’t want to distract him from his mission to SAVE THE WORLD.

Yes, the “hero gets the girl” thing can be a trope if there isn’t sufficient character development but there is plenty of the growing relationship between Aang and Katara, from early crush to friendship to real feelings.

To address your points:

-You’re really using “Started off on opposite sides” as relationship development?
- also, Ba Sing Se is definitely not the first time they met. The first time they meet is when Zuko attacks her and destroys her village. Is that what you mean by “instant connection?”
- Zuko attacks her on numerous other occasions including when he knocked her unconscious at the Northern Water Tribe. I don’t know about you, but I DON’T consider constant violence and assault to be relationship development.

- Katara was more angry at Zuko than Aang was, but that was primarily because she was subconsciously blaming him for her mother’s death, not because he betrayed her in Ba Sing Se. They even did a whole episode EXPLAINING THIS.

- In total, there’s only ONE MONTH of time in the last few episodes of the series where Zuko becomes a friend, and helps Team Avatar. One month of time where Katara continues to fight with Zuko over training for Aang and Katara still continuing to harbor reservations. Yes she trusts Zuko in the end and helps him, but that’s not a romantic relationship in the slightest. That was mainly Zuko’s redemption arc.
- Not to mention that during much of this period, Zuko was already in love with Mai and called leaving her one of the hardest things he’s had to do.
