Wasn't Stan only contacted to write one episode in this arc and the rest would be handled by the TMNT writing team? If so, I don't he's got the last episode.

Not bad. Didn't exactly forward the story much, but still quite liking the environmental designs and action in this arc.

Though the whole Leo rushing off and doing crap, often foolishly, is kind of annoying, as always. That in this series has always felt a little out of character to me, given that he tends to be the tactician in the group; the more cautious, 'look before you leap' kind of guy, and I like that about him. Leave rushing in like that for true acts of desperation when there is literally no time to think... Otherwise, rushing in without thought is more suitable to Raph's personality. If someone is going to do it, then let him do so.

I have to admit, at first I wasn't really looking forward to it as Usagi never really 'clicked' for me as a character. But I really like his portrayal here. I enjoyed these last two episodes and I'm actually looking forward to the conclusion.

Personally I liked how Leonardo was portrayed. He's still a teenager, and even now he's a sensei/head of the family it doesn't make him a different person overnight. He makes mistakes, and that's only natural. The great thing about Leo is that he accepts those mistakes, and tries to become a better person because of them.

For some reason he always struck me as someone who has a hint of arrogance, maybe even pride, as someone who has some difficulty following others and trusting their judgement. But in a way more out of concern for his brothers and less about himself.


It's in Leo's nature to try and carry his burden, his responsibility to protect and keep his family safe, all by himself. It's as if he feels that if anyone has to suffer, it should only be him.

What happened to the horses? They just... disappeared.
These turtles aren't dopey at all. Kintaru on the other hand...
Man I am gonna miss the opening to this series once it's over.
"I'll carry you... off another cliff." - Please do, Raph. Please do.
How do the other turtles not realise that that's not Mikey? He's usually silly, but he's not an asshole. Maybe they are dopey after all.
Well isn't this some freaky ****?
"I don't like Spiders, Yojimbo. Especially the oversized kind." - Never thought I'd agree with Kintaru. I hate spiders!
How are the giant spider's legs not falling through the webbing?
Was Mikey really just get stabbed?
Nah, didn't think so. But damn, Nick. You went dark again.

Good episode, despite it creeping me out.

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 tend to agreed. I was gonna mention this but I didn't want my head bitten off like last time. Glad others agree.

Why are they airing them out of order? I guess it's okay in this instance since time travel is involved, but it still seems like an odd thing to do.

I guess the reason they wanted to air the Usagi arc first is because they wanted it out as the same time as the IDW TMNT/Usagi crossover comic book

Yep

Yeah i know it was dream but i'm surprised they gave Mikey a serious death because of the joke stuff he had in other episodes (Joke dream in Dream Beavers, Joke trap in The Fourfold Trap) So yeah, it was pretty unexpected

Donnie had a gruesome death (being crushed to death caused by Jei's spell) and Raph death seemed too easy because he just got hit by purple fire.

Both of these make sense. Thanks.

I agree completely with Mikey's death. It gave the moment more impact, even though I knew it wasn't real.






Seriously though, what happened to those horses at the beginning? Are they hanging out in the trees?

I guess they died and for obvious reasons couldn't show the bodies.

I expect someone passing by or those lizards have gotten free horse meat for there dinner.

I guess so. I know the BBFC is heavily against animal cruelty, so this won't need censoring in the UK. Best to play it safe, despite all the other dark stuff that the Nick series portrays.

Yep. Hmmm, horse meat. Remember that scandal?

Yeah, I for one wish they would've been flung off the horses. Not keen on throwing them to their death.

Seeing horses die is fine. Animals die in battle all the time.

Horses plummetting to their death in a kids show is very fitting.

Obviously they did but would horses really just run off a cliff though? I can't Imagine they'd be that dumb.

Not sure what you're getting at there, Cubed. Fitting of what?

Seeing any animal (or anyone) die in a kids show is risky territory, especially when it's falling to their death.

Horses are dumb. It's not like we're talking about a cat or dog dying. Horses are dumb beasts that let humans ride them and don't even realize they're being used as a means of transportation.

Cubed, were you kicked by a horse as a child?


You know that actually explains a lot, really.

Horses are not dumb. They are a means of transportation, because they're raised and trained to be, rather somewhat brutally. Perhaps the horses in this episode did fall off the cliff, and Nickelodeon refuses to show it.

Horses are actually very intelligent creatures, Cubed. You might wanna look into them a little more.

and if they did so, then they were portrayed as true samurai, giving their lives away so that their 'master' can survive
that means they died an honorable death in the end, taken the environment they'Re in

I agree with you 100%. Many animals, including horses, sacrifice themselves to save their masters.
