In the finale, how did Zuko know where to look for Jun to use the Nyla the Shirshu and track Aang? Also if, at the start of the finale, Sozin's Comet was only three days away–how did they find time to go to that bar from Ember Island, then to Ba Sing Se, and then to the base with the airship fleet?

How Do Chakras Work?
In the final Avatar/Firelord battle, Aang crashed into a piece of rock directly on the fatal wound on his back. How did that work to start the Avatar state again? Guru Pathik said that Aang locked his chakras, so how could that action unlock his love chakra?

But The War Isn't Over Yet
Why did the Gaang say the war is already over at the start of the finale?

Aren't they worried about all those places being conquered?

Maybe she wasn't thinking straight, but it seems like it would be the instinctive thing to do.
