januar: Sokka and Katara from Avatar: the Last Airbender giving each other a Look ([atla] water siblings)
Today's episodes in my rewatch of Avatar the Last Airbender to see if an episode passes the Bechdel were disappointing. I watched Book 1, Chapters 5 thru 12. In those eight episodes, there were two named female characters total: Katara who was in every one, and Smellerbee who was only in "Jet". There were five female characters who spoke more than one line: Katara, Smellerbee, Haru's mother ("Imprisoned"), the Juang leader ("The Great Divide"), and the fisherman's wife ("The Storm"). Katara and Smellerbee never spoke to each other; Katara and Haru's mother only spoke of Haru and his dad; Katara and the Juang leader never spoke; and Katara and the fisherman's wife only spoke of the fisherman and Sokka.

Three fifths of the way through season one, and I'm thinking I'm going to have to wait until season two before we get an episode that passes the test.

The rest of the season will probably won't be until Wednesday. Until then!
