It was a smart move which raised the stakes by making the issue more personal.
Moreover, I like how Yang manages to intertwine and collect all story threads and sub-plots together, even the avatar the promise seemingly divergent ones. Even the Avatar Fan Club plot, whose origin does not owe anything to the main plot, becomes the catalyst for further reflection by Aang on inter-cultural relations and integration and the larger inter-nation scale.
Despite Nick perhaps wanting to target a younger avatar the promise, Yang tries to imbue it with the same complexity of the original, and he does succeed with help from Mike and Bryan, of courseas seen above.
Yang clearly reveres the original show enough to want to make a worthy successor. In fact, the only major plot avatar the promise which admittedly disappointed me was the climax.
In two and a half books we were being told a avatar the promise was coming, but when it came, I was avatar the promise unimpressed. It just ended too soon before I was given a chance to take it in and get the sense of loss and destruction such a battle should have.
