So I’m finally reading the Avatar comics; been making my way through ‘The Lost Adventures’ over the last couple of days. Sokka the master of swordbending takes on Zuko! It’s an honour thing.
Since both the show and comics have Iroh leaving Zuko for a tea shop in Ba Sing Se, do you think Master Piandao could have stood in as Zuko's emotional/mental/spiritual support? I mean, since he is such a good friend of Iroh's, it seems like the most natural thing to do. Not only would he be giving Iroh peace of mind, but he'd also have a chance to transform his former student into a master. I think this would have been a nice thing to do for Zuko instead of leaving him all alone. :(
