ITA on this one. While the first two seasons pretty much focused on Zuko in terms of change, while the Aang Gang had a set goal and was headed towards it, S3 is becoming more focused on Aang's character growth as Zuko finally finds himself.

I don't think it's that. He seems immature in Book 3 compared to in Book 2. Book 2, he showed responsibility and his mature side when he had life changing decisions. This one, it feels like the producers were really lazy and decided to show alot of fanservice such as:
Spoiler:


Zuko is too weak to be the Avatar's teacher. Zuko's uncle would be a better match.

I dont think so, Zuko is can get stronger, even stronger then his uncle with time. I think that Zuko will be the one that teaches Aang

Zuko is by no means weak. He learned the lessons his uncle tought him and bested his father. He and Sokka have grown the most in strength of all the characters, in fact.

Aang has always had a huge sense of responsibility as the Avatar, and in book 2 his confidence as well as (SPOILER) his avatar state were stripped form him. His growth mentally in book 3 was about repairing what he had lost. His confidence in himself and his friends.

And the fanservices you stated could also be considered character growth on Aang's part. Well at least the first time would be. =P

Wow, that WAS good. The third season still got it. I was actually very emotional for some parts of it.

Hilarious.

The thing that bothers me about the show is that water bending is nowhere near as powerful as it could be. If it was realistic, water benders could just rip all the water out of someones noby, killing them instantly. But that would make it too OP and "too grotesque for American children to watch".

I thought The Puppetmaster did an admirable job of addressing those questions - and in the process, took the show to a darker place than many of us thought it would ever go.

On another note, I don't believe Aang and Zuko will have a quarrel over a love affair... it's nickelodeon, but that would be expecting something; I'll just watch with open eyes. But seriously, Aang and Zuko really seem to work very well together. This episode was very fun to watch. Sad to see the end coming up so fast.

Oh, who else is anticipating Iroh's epic return.
