Death Note is so funny, actually, because the entire first half is just L going, 鈥淪o, I think you鈥檙e a serial killer. It just seems likely.鈥 And then Light goes, 鈥淲ould you still say that if I did 鈥 THIS?鈥 *performs a bunch of social cues that make himself seem trustworthy* And L, who is incredibly autistic and only has to interface with as much of this as he feels like analyzing manually, is like 鈥溾re you done?鈥 And Light鈥檚 like, 鈥淲hat? I mean, I guess.鈥 And L goes, 鈥淕reat. As I was saying 鈥撯 Meanwhile everybody fucking else is in the background going, 鈥淣OW HANG ON, MAYBE WE SHOULD HEAR LIGHT OUT.鈥

I love how people鈥檚 explanation for liking Zuko is usually 鈥渢he bad boy aesthetic鈥 but if you think about it the real bad boy is Aang
- got imprisoned and trialed for murder
- solved a 100 year feud between two clans by lying, wasn鈥檛 even sorry about it
- scammed the crap out of a random town in the fire nation
- nearly destroyed the entire city of Omashu while illegally using the mail system as a slide
- destroyed someone鈥檚 merchandise multiple times
- actually ran away from home, Zuko鈥檚 pathetic excuse of an emo boy just got banished
- stole farmlands to build a zoo in broad daylight
- lied to an all knowing spirit and IT WORKED
- entered ba sing se illegally (he didn鈥檛 have a passport)
- lifted the robe of the Earthking鈥檚 advisor without permission to find a bite mark
- FUCKING BROKE INTO THE EARTHKING鈥橲 PALACE IN BROAD DAYLIGHT BY FIGHTING LITERALLY ALL THE GUARDS
- was an undocumented citizen of the fire nation the whole time they were undecover
- broke through the fire nation鈥檚 blockade twice, once completely by himself when he was wounded
- cheated in an earthbending tournament to defeat the champion and win money (and a fancy belt)
- illegally entered a fire nation school, uncovered certain things about the fire nation that way, got into a fight, had to have a parent/teacher meeting, organised a secret dance party, got discovered and fled with the help of his fellow students, and at the end earthbent in front of them nearly blowing his cover
- DESTROYED AN ENTIRE FIRE NATION FACTORY IN ONE NIGHT WITH KATARA鈥橲 HELP ALONE
I could probably think of other things but my point is Zuko is pathetic and weak and stupid and only Aang has the true bad boy aesthetic you鈥檙e welcome

Zuko鈥檚 profound understanding of Katara
I won鈥檛 lie, the ATLA live action announcement revitalized my interest in this show and this fandom. Unfortunately, it also reminded me of the existence of some of the most unbalanced, borderline conspiratorial interpretations of canon I鈥檝e ever come across. Katara is my favorite from this show and one of my favorite characters in general, and I鈥檓 so bored of seeing her character butchered to accommodate shipping preferences.
Anyway, I just wanna tackle the incredibly fallacious argument that CoD displayed Zuko鈥檚 鈥減rofound鈥 understanding of Katara.
1) 鈥淵ou鈥檙e the fire lord鈥檚 son鈥preading war and violence and hatred is in your blood.鈥
Tumblr media
Katara is, justifiably, furious when she finds herself trapped with Zuko in the catacombs. It鈥檚 like, you鈥檙e being held captive, you realize the last stronghold on earth against an imperialist aggressor is now being infiltrated, and on top of it all, you鈥檙e stuck with the guy who blasted fire at you because you tried to heal his uncle.
But of course, Zuko is a complicated person. He has in fact been severely abused, and that experience shapes most of his personality. He is not a mustache twirling villain, but rather a boy around Katara鈥檚 age who has experienced tragedy in his life, and arguably the most formative tragedy in his life mirrors the most formative tragedy in hers - losing his mother. Zuko and Katara were both left without their primary protectors, leaving Zuko vulnerable to psychological and physical abuse from his father for years on end, and forcing Katara to become a caregiver to not only her family, but her entire struggling village.
The two tragedies are, of course, not quite the same. Katara still shares a positive relationship with her father and her sibling, despite strain due to the responsibilities placed on them all because of the war, while Zuko is abused by both his sister and father. On the other hand, Zuko still has his basic needs taken care of, receives bending education, solid shelter, steady supply of food that he doesn鈥檛 have to provide/cook, and physical protection - he even receives these things well into his banishment, although this changes after the siege of the north.
Still, the somewhat shared experience is there, and Katara realizes this when Zuko reaches out to say 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, that鈥檚 something we have in common.鈥 It鈥檚 true that Aang, Toph, and Sokka have never taken a moment to reach out in that sense to Katara, although they support her in other ways. I don鈥檛 deny the popular ZK shipper argument that Katara acts as a caregiver to her friend group the same way she did with her village.
I do disagree with the conclusion that Katara wants a pillar of strength to lean on, or that Zuko could be that for her, however. Let鈥檚 take a look at the subsequent events.
2) 鈥淚t鈥檚 just, for a long time, when I pictured the face of the enemy, it was your face.鈥
Tumblr media
Katara reaches out, awkwardly, to apologize. I鈥檓 not sure why she is apologizing, nothing she said about Zuko鈥檚 behavior is incorrect. The additional information that his mother is gone does not change his history of attacking, kidnapping, and destroying villages. Still, Katara is an empathetic person and finds it hard to continue being cold to him when he is visibly in pain.
The following conversation is not about Katara. It is about Zuko鈥檚 pain. Which is fine, but does not subvert the pattern of Katara acting as a caregiver to others, as many ZK shippers claim. After she explains that she sees him as the face of the enemy, he says 鈥渕y face鈥 see.鈥 That definitely is not what she meant, but Zuko is an insecure and abused person. It鈥檚 not ooc for him to assume that is what she means. Still, this alters the course of this conversation towards his life and his pain.
He explains that he feels cursed, that he is confused, that he is considering making his own path. Katara wants to aid him in this process in a substantial way, obviously catching the implication that his banishment/duty and his scar are linked, and she generously offers the most precious possession she owns to help him move on. This is no small act of kindness, especially considering the kindest thing Zuko has said to her is 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry, that鈥檚 something we have in common.鈥 It鈥檚 that phrase against months of literally terrorizing her and her friends. That鈥檚 his profound understanding?
But it is a positive interaction, and if this episode had ended here, I would understand why people so adamantly claim that Zuko could be a comforting presence to Katara. This is usually where posts analyzing this scene end, but it doesn鈥檛 make sense to analyze this scene without the context of the momentous, game changing events following it.
3) 鈥淚 thought you had changed!鈥 鈥淚 have changed.鈥
Tumblr media
I once saw an argument that Katara was in the wrong for assuming Zuko was 鈥渙n her side鈥 simply because he had exhibited moral complexity and humanity, and that he had never betrayed her because he never owed her anything. I disagree. Katara didn鈥檛 assume Zuko was 鈥渙n her side鈥, she simply assumed he had developed the moral backbone and restraint necessary to not hunt a 12 year old, even if capturing him would significantly improve your life. She assumed the kindness she had just shown him would convince him not to endanger her and her friend. She was wrong, and it was the most costly mistake of her life.
The fact that Zuko had a glimpse into Katara鈥檚 life, admitted that he shared her pain, empathized with her as a human being for the first time in the entire series, and still betrayed her undercuts the argument that CoD exhibits a special understanding between Zuko and Katara. You can argue this about future episodes, though I disagree with plenty of those points too, but it makes zero sense to convince yourself that this moment displayed a profound connection that Katara could not share with anyone else.
Zuko saw her break down in tears over her mother鈥檚 death, and replicated the trauma of that moment within the next few hours by aiding his sister in murdering her best friend. That in itself shows you just how 鈥渄eep鈥 Zuko鈥檚 empathy for her truly ran. How important her pain really seemed in the grand scheme of his life. Katara had Azula and would鈥檝e taken her down, had Zuko not intervened, and that intervention lead to Aang鈥檚 temporary death.
As late as TSR, Zuko has not appreciated the gravity of his actions or the lasting effect they had on Katara. That鈥檚 why he demands to know why she can鈥檛 forgive him 鈥渨hen everyone else has鈥 and why he goes to visit Sokka after that conversation, still declaring 鈥渟he hates me, and I don鈥檛 know why.鈥 He hasn鈥檛 put two and two together that Katara linked the near death of her best friend at the hands of the FN with the actual death of her mother at the hands of the FN - a pretty instinctive connection to make, if you ask me.
So no, Zuko does not have a profound understanding of Katara. He does not have deep, lasting respect for her until the literal finale of this series. CoD was written by Aaron Ehasz btw, kind of weird for a supposedly secret zutarian to write the episode that shot down every trope fans had constructed for the ship. You can still ship it, but let鈥檚 stop insisting this was somehow the objectively healthiest ship.

Katara just has to ask Aang and if he doesn't aprove...she will be like ,,What did you say?!" and everything will be okay after that. 馃槀馃槀馃憡馃憡馃憣馃憦馃挄馃挒 That's how it works.
If you think that Katara somehow became a powerless, stay-at-home mother under the harsh control of Aang despite plenty of evidence against that, then maybe you don鈥檛 actually know Katara.
