I like this explanation.

But this goes back to the one thing I was a bit disappointed about these episodes. We aren't seeing how the turtles fare after Splinter's death, we're just seeing how Leo fares. I like how Leo feels over burdened with his responsibilities, but that doesn't mean the show has to focus on him without even just one sentence about how the others are doing. If Splinter's death is a reason for Donnie's outburst, if he's afraid of losing his other family members too, then just one mention in the episodes before this, or even this one, would have really helped bring it into perspective.
