Much to Azula's surprise the waterbender's skills were greater than she anticipated. She paused mid-stance and watched the flames from her last attack be engulfed and extinguished by the tendrils of water.

Katara sensed Azula was vulnerable and attacked, not just defending herself but going for the princess herself this time. The water coiled around the stunned princess' body. It slowly squeezed her, making it difficult to breathe. Her arm and leg were immobilized, she couldn't bend fire.

Azula knew she might be defeated if things didn't change, she plead for assistance from her brother.
