Zuko is annoyed by Aang's lack of intensity in his training, when he's taken aback by the declaration from the team that they've decided to wait until after Sozin's Comet has passed to attack the Fire Lord. Zuko explains the fault in this plan, having attended a war meeting revealing Ozai's intention to use the heightened Firebending of the cosmic event to burn the entire Earth Kingdom to the ground, eliminating all opposition to his reign through either death or fear. Aang then becomes even more anxious than he was before.

The group works together to give Aang combat training, but he still can't resolve killing another human being for any reason. The others continue to joke and play it off every time he brings that up, eventually angering him and he walks off in protest. They let him clear his head, but when he goes to the beach to think, he sees an island and goes into a trance, walking toward it unconsciously.

The others search for him everywhere, but can't find a trace of him, so Zuko thinks of the only person who might be able to find him before everyone's time runs out. Meanwhile, Fire Lord Ozai prepares to depart for the Earth Kingdom, commanding Azula to stay behind so that she may be appointed the new Fire Lord. Ozai has decided to take on an even greater title... the Phoenix King.
