So Splinter just condoned drunkenness? And possibly as a fighting tactic? Um...

Finally a little backstory to Tiger Claw becoming am mutant, and I kind of like the Alopex as his sister angle, but agree there is a lot of undeveloped story there.


Did Splinter also suggest, rather unceremoniously while drunk, that he doesn't have anything more to teach them...?

As for near death, then you'd have to deal with comments you brought up before:



Obviously that's the death route, but my point is at this point, what's the point of constant fake outs? Not withstanding spoilers from the upcoming episodes, but it's too monotone as a result of overusage. It's lost all luster for Donatello and especially Leonardo; I highly doubt they'd hurt Michelangelo for now due to him being the most marketable Turtle, Raphael maybe but the characterization of him makes it difficult to judge if it would work or not.
As I said I can't talk about this in this thread because it does contain spoilers from the last 2 episodes, use the Korean thread if you seen the last 2 episodes in Korean.

My idea of a near death wouldn't last longer than a few episodes, maybe a 2 part episode would be enough. season 5 will have multi part episodes.

Fair enough, just pointing out the initial comment. When it's a US release, it's fair game.

I want to see a turtle with a physical wound/near death
I know it's something complicated and ambiguous, but for me being molecularly scattered = being dead
I mean, his body did BOOM! (my signature's picture can confirm it xD) and all his molecules went to nothing. And he would still be dead if April wouldn't have used the crystal.

Anyway, just like you, I still want to see TMNT IDW #44 happening in this show

I just want to say that Donnie in IDW wasn't missing for few issues, he 'died' in issue 44. Then we saw him in the spirit world talking to his mum and then his mind was transferred to Metalhead and all this happened in issue 45.

So a near death similar to that would be awesome for a 2 or 3 part episode.

I thought the episode was pretty good but not great, which I'm sure the next two episodes will be. I liked how Splinter drank and was still able to defeat Casey and his sons. The Casey plot wasn't bad but it didn't really add anything to the main plot. I would have liked some more details to the two backstories as I feel that both TC and Alopex greatly misunderstood each other. And the big scene of what Alopex did to her brother, I wanted to feel that moment and I applaud Nick for allowing this to be shown (not that I thought they would censor it) but despite that, I was thinking "why isn't this as awesome as I wanted it to be."

Good episode, though. Can't wait til next episode, though.

Yeah kind of a bad episode, like Aaronado said the whole Casey subplot felt like unneeded padding for a story that should have been more emotionally powerful but feels like a fart in the long run and the whole superpowers stuff(with April telekinesis and Alopex's superspeed) didn't help matters. Also this feels like it should've been a season 3 episode where Tiger Claw had some sort of presence and status but here we are in season 4 where he is basically interchangeable from Xever or Rahzar.

I thought it was a great episode, Some of the action had those slow motion Quicksilver moments.

The episode also addressed the whole Alopex and Mona Lisa thing, Raph liked what she saw in Alopex, But thinks Mona Lisa is better, So there's your answer, Nick TMNT Raph is 100% on Mona Lisa.

Ahh damn.

But isn't the UK version out next week for Owari? And wouldn't that mean it would be available on ITunes?

We get Owari on the 25th February, a day before the US does.

Tokka vs The world aired today, Tale of Tiger Claw on 18th and Requiem on the 19th (the same day as the US)

We get the episodes on ITunes a few hours after they aired on tv.

I see.

Can't wait to hear all the intense screaming and battle crying in English on Feb 25th!

Possible she's also too old for him anyhow. Hard to guess with her, she feels like the younger sibling, but Tiger Claw has more of a 30+ vibe imo.

So if we finally got an adult female mutant in her, awesome. (Too bad she might not be around much beyond this, if at all.)

Hopefully we'll see more of Alopex soon, She was bad ass, plus I liked that she's a speedster, I think she would make an excellent member of the mutanimals.

It was funny hearing Master Splinter talking while drunk.

LOL, a post like this and you say you're not trolling? This episode gave backstory to one of the main villains, introduced a new character like Alopex and had the villains arm chopped off which will directly affect Tiger Claw's character going forward.

Some of the jokes did fall flat, but otherwise all the story elements made up for it.

and TigerClaw will have a metal hand when we get to the episode where he summons the demon dragon.
