"The Runaway" is the 47th episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender.


Team Avatar encounters monetary issues, so Toph uses her earthbending to scam Fire Nation civilians out of their funds, earning Katara's disapproval. Toph views Katara as acting too motherly, and a rift forms within the group. To amend things, Katara decides to pull a scam with Toph, but they are caught by an assassin, whom Sokka dubs Combustion Man. He uses them as bait in an attempt to kill Aang, but Katara's quick thinking saves the day. As the group settles down for the night, Toph, with Katara's help, sends a letter to her parents.
