Oh for God's sake. I was afraid they were going to do something like that
Evil Leo just doesn't make sense to me. Is there's a plausible explanation?

Not entirely sure how I feel about that rushed (if you can call it a) happy ending... Anyone else's thoughts?

I don't get why Leo would end up evil and then just snap out if it so easily

Well, the mutagen does warp minds.

Yeah it was kinda rushed and its a shame because this is my favorite arc in season 5, while I did like the Miyamoto Usagi episode I thought the 2nd part was really weak and the 3rd was meh but I gotta admit when it comes to consistent good episode this arc is second to none(at least in season 5)

I called Leo Double mutating and turning evil a few days ago.

He can't fight no more because he has a permanent injury so he's staying somewhere else.
He had a breakdown or had a massive argument with his brothers over this Apocalypse and he just left.
His brothers think he's dead but he was actually captured, tortured and forced to join Verminator Rex gang.
His brothers think he's dead but he ended up with amnesia and he goes off on his own but along the way he starts to remember who he is and he finally reunites with his brothers.
He's a spy in Verminator's Rex gang but his brother's either knew about it or they didn't know about it.

Anyone else got any ideas.

Uh... huh. Interesting. Enjoyed it for what it is. Though I'm kinda glad this isn't where I will leave off on the series. (The last family pic and Mirage art though... )

Knew it... But why'd he turn bad? (That mutation, uh, wow. Ack.) And that was a rather easy resolution...


Kind of like the Tremors nod with Chompy.

And I guess Raph, who was supposedly treated sooo badly by this series, went and got himself a movie length chunk of episodes that will be what many people leave off with with. Funny how that worked out. lol

Tell me he really didn't keep Casey's skull. o.O

But I guess at least when ever Chompy destroys the planet it won't matter anymore. Hm.

(Though I really really could have done without that girl having to blabber on before and after commercial breaks and the nonsense they were showing. Far be it to just give us decent shots of the Turtles inspired cars and leave it at that. So scripted too.)

I don't know if I'd call it a happy ending, but I think it's really hopeful.

Very solid arc, except for the last ten minutes, which were criminally rushed. Should've spent a little less time on car chases to make for a more fulfilling Leo catch-up. Called Leo being Kong as soon as I saw the guy, not terribly keen on that being the route they went with, but whatever. Aside from him I really like where they took the other turtles, both in terms of design & story. I'm glad ICK & Chompy were still around. It was cool seeing Casey's patriotic mask a'la Bodycount/Volume 3. I got a kick out of the Toxic Avenger & Howard Stern references, fitting to have a few more given they were a mainstay of sorts in the series. The Scaletail clan were super cool, & I got a kick out of the reference in their namesake.* Nyambi Nyambi did a real nice job with the voice gig, as did Meera's VA. To that end, the turtles' older voices were a treat, too.

*Can anyone tell me who their leader was voiced by? I KNOW that dude but I can't think of where I know him from.

Personally, I'd rather this series' sendoff not have been a Mad Max homage with a new character somewhat taking the lead, & a rushed ending, but I don't necessarily feel dissatisfied. Going with a bleak future tale is an ideal way to cap things off, even if it wasn't exactly what I'd hope for thematically. Can't knock the fact we got kind of a happy ending. I was expecting to cry, & I didn't, so that's something.

Well, that third part could've used more work. A bit more showing rather than telling, a bit less on the nose crap. I still liked it alright, but mostly because of what was established in the first two episodes. I LOVED the first act, though. Watching Raph single-handedly go from bottom to leader of two major tribes through fighting was a treat. Everything else was alright, but could've been done much better. Especially Leo. As Powder said, the last ten minutes are especially rushed and unfortunately don't make for the best ending.

Aaaaaaaand, that's it. Five years. Five seasons. Every episode. Other than the ones currently unreleased of course, but this is the finale. Man, I remember being so excited for this show when it first came out in 2012. I counted down the days to September 29 like a freakin madman, and I was not disappointed when season 1 came out. It impressed me enough on its own to keep me invested in the show as it went on. Season 2 equally impressed me and, in some cases, I liked even more being a bit more dramatic. The golden moments of Seasons 3-5 have been worth it. While it's a bit sad to watch a show go through seasonal rot, it's nice to know it went out on a fairly high note. I'm really glad we got this show, it's still my favorite of the three TMNT series easily. I'll always be able to rewatch my season 1 and my season 2, my Tale of the Yokai and my Requiem/Owari, my Darkest Plight and my Lone Rat and Cubs. For that, I couldn't be happier.

Thanks for the run, guys. It was a lot of fun.

even though the ending was rushed, i cant help but feel bad 4 leo....... not much else 2 say atm cause of how i couldnt hear half of the eps so holding off on the rest 4 later

Just thought of this but despite how it was rushed, maybe in a way, it was similar to how sasuke could calm jugos rages excluding the sharigan involvment (4 those that have seen naruto shippudden)

The ending of the show tonight feels like the ending of the 2012 turtles, just happened so quickly. Glad for everything we got these last five years, it was a fun ride. Feels weird that it's over. No matter what the TMNT bring in the future toon wise, I'll always enjoy rewatching this series.

I missed the first part of the episode. Was it mentioned on what happened to April, Karai, Shingami, Casey (I know he's dead as his skull became a bomb).

Anybody else wondering how ice cream kitty hasnt melted yet?

And i agree with the ending being overly rushed. Could have used 5 minutes less of car chases and that time spent dealing with Leo a touch more.

I really liked Raph and Don's character design. Don actualy reminded me a lot of Chappie... Mikey and Leo's designs not so much. Leo needs to put that helmet back on and I'm guessing years of eating rotten sardine pizzas gave Mikey intestinal parasites.
