  • Because I would think that they could have easily taken over the rest of the ship once she freed them. To refresh peoples'¬†memories, Hama was the Puppetmaster/the one who discovered bloodbending.¬†

    • Yeah, I wondered this too.

    • Yeah, she definitely could have done so. They might have done it to add to the drama as the last waterbender.

    • She was on a ship? I really doubt they would keep waterbenders on a ship. Considering they had her for what seemed like years they almost definitely had her in some prison far away from any water.

      As for the question... One person escaping is a lot easier than a dozen people escaping. You also have to realize that all of those other waterbenders were completely broken, tortured for years. Hama was the most recent victim, everyone else was there for longer than she was.

      She also became jaded and defeated. Maybe she considered them weak and not worth saving.

      I feel like this is a similar situation as when people complain "why didn't the earthbenders just escape when Katara gave her speech in episode 6" Concentration camps are no joke.

    • I can see this. I did in no way mean that it wouldd have been easy, and concentration camps aren't are joke. I agree with you.

    • I never thought about why Kama didn't free her people. But now I did thanks to this thread.

      Gotta give props to a show capable of having such dark topics and making them work in a children's show.

    • Maybe she still hadn't developed Bloodbending to a level of controlling multiple persons and/or the other waterbenders were all dead by the time she escaped.
