Due to the wonders of early DVD releases and, uh, "generous" internet users, I've seen the episode a lot earlier than I thought I would.

Spoiler:
So seeing a character get introduced and killed off in the same episode was rather odd, I'm so used to this show just introducing a character and then ignoring them so they could introduce more characters they'll never use. This feels honest in a weird way.

Even having seen the episodes after this, I don't think Tatsu and a certain someone else will be only ones challenging Karai's claim to leadership.

Tatsu is the new character introduced he even looks like Toshishiro Obata. He's portrayed as a master swordsman which is a nice little nod to the man. No spoiler tags because common sense if you're in a discussion thread about an episode spoilers should be expected.

Awesome episode. It was great that they used Tatsu and that he's a blind swordsman and one of Karai's teachers. I just wish he wasn't killed off as I felt there could have been more opportunities to use him as I felt he was a promising character. But I did like how Leo used that technique on him to distract him. I also liked Leo getting tough and not taking any crap from Raph and Mikey. Don't mess with Sensei Leo! Though I have a feeling that there are going to be times where the guys try to undermine his authority and challenge him. We'll have to see how this plays out. Overall, a very interesting episode and I loved Fishface's comments about Bradford putting on weight and his retort that he had a taste for sushi.

Loved this episode, great fight scenes, they were choreographed brilliantly.

Tatsu was a great villain, itís a shame they didnít use him earlier.

I find it a bit wrong that they left Shinigami and Casey laying down by the hospital entrance, I know the turtles couldnít take them in but Karai and April can, but I expect itís because they didnít want to answer the Doctors questions and get the police involved and I did notice they took Caseyís gear off so the doctors donít get suspicious.

Aww!!!! poor Mikey, seeing him with a bandaged over head and eye is heart breaking but I love that Leo is looking after him.

We're not allowed to give links on the forums, I believe. (PM maybe) If you have the Nick2 channel, you can catch it at 12, which is another hour from now. It could also be up ITunes, but I don't use that; the recent Super Shredder DVD has this, the previous episode, and the next on it, but you need to purchase it.

Otherwise, you're going to need to wait a few hours or until tomorrow for someone to post it online. Keep your eyes peeled.

Another solid episode. Bradford really was dead after all. Does this mean Bebop and Rocksteady were killed too?

An excellent episode, it's great to see the episodes this season are going to intertwine better.

Spoiler:
It's fantastic to see Rahzar and Fishface having a major role after two seasons of background fodder.

Shame they killed off Tatsu, he had the makings of a worthy antagonist (a blind swordsman... how cool is that).

If Tatsu was blind, than how was he able to tell Karai was a mutant?

The two giant snakes-for-hands biting at him might have given it away.

Plus Tatsu had already heard (presumably from the foot soldiers) that she was a snake mutant and the hissing will have been a massive giveaway.

I think maybe they just killed off Tatsu to tie up any loose ends for the end of the show.

I agree with everyone that said it's a shame to lose such a badass character. Imagine how much of Shredder, Karai and Splinter's backstories he could've brought up that we didn't already know about.

This was better than episode one for me.

Xbox had been so good at getting the last few episodes up by midnight but it's almost 11 AM and nothing.

Buh.

And I thought Shredder is the only one who trained Karai. Why are the recent episodes making her past mysterious?

Did anyone else catch that Mikey's video game was John Carpenter's "The Thing"?

ooooh yes

Though I was struggling to find any reason why it was... I was expecting some other kind of reference during the episode to link into it. The same way some of the in show tv shows relate to the story.

I sort of have mixed feelings on this episode, on one hand I really do like the fight scenes and I did like how at the end they used Tatsu's acute hearing against him but everything else was kind of meh. I felt Tatsu was too similar to Shredder what with him treating his subordinates like crap and I didn't like the fact that Xever and Bradford acted like wusses in front of Tatsu(okay they did beat Raph and Mikey but still)
