At least I'm willing to wait and see what happens. We still have season 5. Pretty sure Alopex will return.

I am legitimately excited for Season 5. It actually has the potential to surpass Season 1 considering the implications of the Season 4 finale...

Same reason why I loved the Season 3 opener and why I think it's one of the best episodes because it delt with the consequences of the Season 2 finale...

Of course it all fell apart later with the inclusion of Kraang, Triceratons and the other Mutants but that's advantage of Season 5; it doesn't have ANY of that thank god.

The new handicap, probably making him less useful to Shredder, and the stress of always having to watch his back because he has a sister who wants to destroy him piece by piece?

I kind of always had this lingering feeling Tiger Claw's "honorable" side would cause him to betray Shredder... especially after Shredder pretty much let his desire for revenge outweigh saving the planet when he stabbed Splinter in the back directly before the Space saga began resulting in all of their deaths. I thought Tiger Claw's reaction in that single moment was going to spark a new side to him, foreshadowing the possibility that he perhaps would attempt to overthrow Shredder...

Does anyone else think this just might be an easter egg for "The Catwoman from Channel 6" episode??

Lol I did wonder why Tiger Claw has a picture of a cat woman.

Did any else catch the Tony the Tiger reference, Raph said "Back off Tony"

I'm surprised nobody pointed out that Raph called Tiger Claw, "Tony," as in Tony the Tiger from Frosted Flakes cereal. "They're GRRRRRREEEEEAT!"

thinking back on it, thats probably why i dont view the season 3 finale as being that great overall, dont get me wrong, its a good episode but doesnt have any spark like some other episodes
and they could have had a whole running gag about casey not knowing when to intuitively do something. instead, nope. they focused on the bad luck and only brouht the lesson thing on at the end.

this show has attention deficit disorder

For an episode with a drunk splinter and mutilation, it couldn't keep my interest

Alopex with super really made her uninteresting

I saw the episode. I have to say, seeing Tiger Claw's arm cut gave me the creeps at all levels. But there's something really weird here. Apolex cut a big piece of meat from him, how is it possible there was no blood? TV censorship? If they were not to follow reality, then they shouldn't have shown the scene like this.

I was greatly amused by the Katmandu and Tony the Tiger references, but I guess I hadn't thought about the weird cat-lady picture being a shout-out to "The Cat Woman from Channel Six." Anybody asked Ciro or Brandon or crew on Twitter?

And I must admit, I appreciated Bebop's little moment of compassion to Tigerclaw commenting "we'll get you fixed up." Considering how much Tigerclaw seems to despise Bebop and Rocksteady (even in this episode) I thought it was almost sweet. Bebop also helped Tigerclaw out earlier in the episode when he landed that projectile attack on Alopex while she was fighting on the roof and allowed Tigerclaw to deliver a big hit.

I was always a big fan of Bebop's childlike personality in the Fred Wolf show, and I'm a big fan of him in the Nick show too. The guy may be a villain, but he's a lot of fun.

Alopex's speed was a nice touch, it helped stand her out a bit more than just another mutant.

Or maybe you do.

It's amazing that simple subplots in the Nick show fly over your head.

Splinter is a light weight. I'd love to be drunk in one gulp.
