Plot: With their new ally, April, the turtles aim to take down Baxter Stockman and his mouser robots for good.
Breakdown: I don’t really have much to say about this episode. It’s a fitting end to this three-parter, and we get the backstory of Splinter and the turtles, which was pretty cute and cool, but it’s ultimately just a wrap-up with no real surprises.
We do get some sweet moments with Donatello and April, but that’s about it.
The only negative points worth noting are incredibly minor and borderline nitpicky. For example, I get that the ooze gave the turtles the capability to speak human language, and being around Splinter must’ve given them a concept of language to the point where they could eventually speak, but if they had never gone above ground until the series started, where did they pick up all the slang?
Also, why are all the cameras that Stockman has thermal imaging cameras? I get that we need to have their turtle nature be a surprise to their enemies, but why? This would make sense if the area was dark, but it’s perfectly lit. Even the mouser robots only take thermal imaging pictures.
All in all, a good ending to this arc, but it wasn’t anything special.
