I hope Ozai dies. I just think it would be a real twist if Ozai died (or was killed) before he faced Aang. Ozai has always been the final opponent in Aang's eyes. His death would cause the gAang to reconsider their whole strategy. What would become of Zuko? Would he succeed his father or would Azula usurp the position? So many different possibilites stem from the death of Ozai. Yes, Ozai must die for interesting plot development!

The earth king, seriously that guy was dumb. but he'll probably end up with the hippies which is a fate worse than death
Aw, poor Kuei. He's the awesomeness. I find his ignorance rather cute.
I really wouldn't like anyone to die, really. Aang's already died, so it'd be repetative to off him again.
I don't hate Toph or Katara. In fact, I don't really care about those two, since they're two-dimensional charaters anyway. What bothers me is that as long those two are around Aang, and are main characters, we will never get to see Aang develop into a proper fully realized Avatar. As long as Katara is around, Aang has a limit to how far he can progress as a Water Bending Master. He can never grow past Katara, as it would diminish Katara's role in the show. For example, we won't see Aang learn how to heal. Or, as seen in "The Puppet Master," Aang will not be able to get the more advanced moves; they will all go to Katara so she can still play a large role in the show. The same goes for Toph and Earth Bending. Furthermore, the creators are not going to let Aang be the best bender in every element like he should be. Instead, he will contintue to be below both Katara and Toph.
If either Katara or Toph died, Aang would shut down. (Sokka too, of course, but Sokka's not been brought up yet) And I just couldn't stand that.
I don't mind Aang being outshone by Toph and Katara in terms of bending; if he was the best, fans would be calling him overly powerful. Having him be skilled but not a master is just enough of a balance to move the action foreward but not dominate the show entirely.
Nothing personal on her, but as long as she's around, Aang's never going to grow up. I know he's only twelve, but honestly, she practically smothers him, and treats him like a son. The worst part is, Aang has no problem going along with it. As seen in "The Painted Lady", he didn't think twice about the repercussions of their actions, all Katara had to do was suggest they burn the factory, and he went right along with it.
I think a part of Aang (a pretty large part, actually) enjoys being pampered like he is now, and is unwilling to grow up. As long as Katara's around to spoil him, he'll probably stay complacent in her arms, screw the world or not.
Toph differs in that she's constantly pushing Aang to get a backbone. Like shown in "Bitter Work", if he falls, she makes him get back up again, instead of wallowing in failure and self-pity. She forces him to face things head on, as opposed to running away.
And there is a greater evil. Humanity itself. The evil that lies in the hearts of men. The evil that drove a wedge between two in-laws (Roku and Souzin). The evil that fueled a despot (Ozai), the evil that warped a child (Azula)
