Avatar Book 3, Ep. 12-13 - Spoiler-free review

After a very long hiatus, I'm back to my Avatar re-watch project. The irony is that I've actually had two nearly-completed episode reviews sitting around on my hard drive for...um, over two years! But Mark Oshiro (of Mark Reads/Watches) has now passed me up with his ATLA reviews, so I thought I'd better get a move on, and finish what I started.

A couple of notes on the format:

1. In the home stretch, I've decided to do two episodes at a time, so that I can really dwell on all of my favorite moments from the series' dénouement.
2. I’m also going to write about each episode in the style of a review, rather than just doing a drive-by reaction the way I used to. (This is the main reason why this post has been held up for TWO YEARS.)
3. Just a reminder: I will do one spoiler-free review that only contains info through the current episode, and then I will do a second post with anything I may have to say that relates to later episodes. Please keep comments to *this* post spoiler-free.
4. I'll still include info from the commentary tracks, as appropriate, but I'm going to put all commentary info in the spoiler post.
