Hope we see more of that new character General Griffin in season 5.

Poor Mikey seemed to get a lot of torture in this episode, he got punched by Raph and then nearly dissected/liversected.
Last three episodes actually.

Me too. That could potentially be the cause of the world finding out that the Ninja Turtles exist.

I think that elevator scene was a reference to how we viewed Michael Bay's first TMNT movie. And maybe being nearly dissected/liversected was supposed to be a mythology gag to the 2003 series.

I don't consider Tale of Tiger Claw a dark episode, yes it has a 'What the ****' moment but that's it. Requiem and Owari are more darker than Tale of Tiger Claw.

Yeah this was a great episode. Nick's Bishop is great, I love how he works with the EPF but he's an Utrom in this version, but he's still true to the character in trying to protect the Earth from alien invasion. His fight scenes were also great and how the last guy pretended to be knocked out.

The jab at the Bay turtles in the elevator scene was hilarious. Goddamn, the Nick writers hate the movies as we do.

Also like how it tied back into the space arc from the beginning of the season with Tokka. Which really goes to put into perspective people complaining about "dropped plotlines" need to shut up, the writers will likely go back to everything eventually.

That was a fun episode and it was interesting to watch the English version. I couldn't resist watching the Korean version weeks ago and it was fun seeing the different perspective, although generally my first guess from the Korean episode was the same.

Donatello is still a jerk to Casey though, he really needs to get over it.

Loved the scenes with Mikey and Casey. I enjoy seeing them interact together, they make a fun duo.

Minor thing I noticed about the intro: Why is Spike not replaced with Chompy in the "Raphael" segment of the theme song? They make minor changes of costume and things elsewhere...why not swap out Raph's pet?

I've been thinking the same thing ever since City at War.

I mean, really it's been weird ever since Slash and Destroy. But especially so now.

I've also been perplexed by this, but at the same time I feel like they keep Spike in just as a reminder of how far these characters have all come since the beginning of the series. Though they haven't matured that much, there is a slight bit of character growth noticed, especially when you go back to the series premiere.

General Griffin was a nice parody of every military general in every alien invasion movie ever made.

Both Mikey and Splinter had the exact same idea I had about when Chompy would become gigantic and Raph couldn't keep him when that time came, but it's true that really won't be for a very, very long time. I'm glad that Raph got to keep Chompy because his friendship with him is sweet. I thought we were going to get a repeat of the fun elevator scene from the 2014 film when Mikey started beat-boxing in today's episode, but Raph didn't want to hear it.

I am confused. Did it air or not? I didn't see it pop up on my DVR. Its set to record any new episodes of TMNT 2012. I am at church when new episodes air so I wouldn't know.

Must suck hating on someone that did an identical scene better with more emphasis on the Turtles' comraderie and identity rather than a quick throwaway jab that makes their incarnation's Turtles look like d!cks.
