Saw it. This episode is better than the last one for me
Spoiler:

The Giant Spider took Raph and start to tying his full body with her spiderweb while he was saying: DEJA VUU!! Totally a reference of TLOTR

That was the best part lol

The final scene with Donnie Mikey and Raph "dying" (really they are not dead of course) was surprising and the battle of Jei VS Leo was intense.

Great episode, it was strange at first with those trickster bears but then the episode became more and more serious.

That last part, even though it was a dream, totally freaked me out

Leo crying and holding Mikey, got me teared up.

Not feeling this one. Feels like a waste turning 1 of the 3 Usagi episodes into something so goofy. The last one was a masterpiece to me, so a comedy driven feature that doesn't really move the plot being on the heels of that leaves something to be desired. & then there's the tacked on drama at the end. Nobody but Vicky fell for that. C'mon, how many times they gonna fake deaths in this series? By this point, I know better, so it held no emotional impact for me. The fight itself was cool, though. & we got one uber brief moment of Usagi & Leo, they could've done so much more with their dynamic. This would've been a good opportunity to build on that, rather than give way too much screen time to Mikey's ridiculousness. Tanuki are cool & all, but there are so many other Yokai out there that could've made their time far more tumultuous, I was hoping for more variety. Spider stuff's a bit generic in that department.

Shoulda, coulda, woulda, ah well. I'm sure the next will win me over as they usually do.

I didn't fall for it, I knew it was a dream but it was still an emotional moment.

I was surprised that Mikey was stabbed and not given a joke 'death'.

Also what ridiculous moment, that was a Tanuki not Mikey.

I felt the same way. So much more interesting stuff in Usagi's world that could have been explored. Also the story structure and pacing was pretty weird.

At least they did a good job selling the fact that Leo believed it. No generic "this can't be happeningggggg!"

Preach brother. Leo/Usagi is always based around "we have swords and honor and fight battles together, we're such tight bros". Now we finally have a crossover where Splinter was slain by Shredder, similar to how Usagi has lost both his father and his master. Doesn't seem like they're going to touch on that.

It was a better design than Spiderbytez lol. And they referenced the Spider Witch from Ghostbusters, so that was cool.

But yeah, next week looks great. It will be bittersweet though, since this will be the last time, chronologically, that we see the guys as teenagers.

yeah the reaction to the deaths was pretty well done even if it was obviously a dream...but yeah a lot of it was kinda wasted on pranks? i mean i did enjoy it, but not as intense as last episode i think (unless you count that scene but, ya know. Fake out)

Great ending, dissapointed it was just a dream.

I don't know why Raph said deja vu, that spider monster only made me think of the video game, Brother.

Did they say that it was Usagi that knocked out Raph, Mikey, and Donnie in the ending?

From the looks of things, Leo might be put under full control of Jei in the next episode.

I bet Sumo Kuma thinks that the Turtles, and Usagi are dead.

It was a Lord of the Rings Reference, Sean Astin Character was wrapped up in Webbing

No Jei put a dream spell on them and when Jei killed them in the dream, they woke up.

I think all the turtles will be under Jei's control.

went from a pretty cool stan saki written episode, with lots of neat visuals not really seen before in TMNT......to another boring horror like episode that seemed rather out of place.

I guess a bunch of talking animal warriors wasn't enough to keep ones interest.

i don't know about this season so far.

Zombie shredder arc was rather forgettable.

The Return of the Nuetrlizer was rather interesting, although I wish they had kept Dregg and the worlds shortest invasion out of it. it would have worked much better focusing it on the Nuetralizers race.

the first usagi ep was pretty cool, second one lost my interest fast.

As a fan of Japanese mythology and mythology in general, I liked it. The dream-fight with Jei was also pretty intense.

Joroguma gave Akemi reason to have even existed in the show in the first place, since she did absolutely f**k all in Yojimbo.
