1. No blood cause it's kids a cartoon and all that. I wouldn't call it censorship because that's how it was made, there isn't an uncut version with blood spraying everywhere.

2. Tiger Claw is still an animal of sorts. There's an unwritten rule of censorship where you can do such things to monsters or creatures as long as they're not human or look human. There's no way you'd ever see them cut April or Casey's hand off.

Alopex actually reminded me of a Sonic the Hedgehog character with the speed, especially with her being a furry.

I was focusing on what was written on it...風入. It pretty much means entering the wind, so it's indicating that she's as fast and as swift as the wind. Her being fast makes sense based on that.

I liked this ep. Thought Alopex was cool enough, and I'm excited to see what happens to TC moving forward. Also loved Splinter pulling a Bo Rai Cho from MK.

That was a whole bunch of fun.
Drunken Splinter was hilarious. Loved Mikey backing off so as not to be puked on!!
A bunch of laugh out loud moments. My fave was calling TigerClaw - Tony !!
Of course, I was surprised that they did what they did to 'Tony'. Didn't see that coming, let alone the clapping gag, which was real funny.

Splinter can't handle his sake or just pretending to be drunk?

Weird anyhow..


Then came the shocker..

Spoiler:
She cut his arm right off? WTF!? I thought she just gave him a cut!

My Internet was down last night so I haven't been able to post my thoughts on this episode until now.
  • "What is matter with kitty-cat man?"
  • Drunken Master!
  • The lip-sync in this episode feels a little... off, in places.
  • I haven't started the IDW comics yet so I don't know who Alopex is yet. She seems cool. Reminded me of Sly Cooper at first.
  • I'm really getting tired of Bebop's Michael Jackson impression now.
  • "Erl Abay"?
  • Interesting backstory for Tiger Claw.
  • "Back off me, brah."
  • Sibling rivaly, y'all!
  • Defeated by a Mouser. That's just embarrassing.

Has anyone else noticed that when Bebop sees Alopex through his scope, it gives her a stat line in the lower right side corner?

Att 55
Def 59
Hp 76/150
Bat 230

Seems like that hit from Casey hurt more than it looked.

I'm wondering if this is a reference to anything else? She isn't in any computer games I'm aware of and the only board game with her in doesnt use stats like that. Any ideas?

I like his reaction to Drunken Splinter and Tiger Claws hand getting cut off.

I can't wait for his reaction for Requiem

Oooh, I'm liking Alopex's arctic look in the IDW comics. Looking forward to finally starting them.

I'm glad Andre cleared up what happened with Tiger Claw. I couldn't quite tell that his arm was cut off. That's nasty!

I gotcha covered, oldmanwinters:

Okay, finally here to give my full opinion on this episode. First of all, I thought it was an okay episode. It had a nice balance of humor and seriousness for my tastes, I guess. I will admit, that I can understand people feeling that the subplot that shoehorned the Turtles into this story was a bit crowding, but that was the point. They had to get them involved in some way. Think about it. Alopex is super fast. If she would’ve just stolen the swords and taken off, I doubt they would’ve pursued her, given to how difficult it would’ve been. With something on the line, Casey’s (and to an extent, the others) life, they had more of a reason to try and find her. That was the only way, for the way the story was set up, for them to get to meet with her and, in a way, sympathize with her.

Speaking of Alopex, I liked her. I know she’s not an arctic fox and apparently not like her IDW counterpart, but she was cool to me. She’s true ninja. lol That speed and stealth, awesome! She still reminds me of Ninjara, though, and this episode just made me feel even more that they originally wanted to use her but couldn’t get the rights to her, and settled on Alopex. Nick seems to be going out of its way to avoid using IDW characters in the current show, so using Alopex feels like an odd choice. So yeah, I strongly feel they originally wanted Ninjara.

Tigerclaw and Alopex’s backstory was pretty sad, but it still feels like something is being purposely left out. Tigerclaw mentioned that he did the things that he did for both their sakes. Alopex was pretty much saying that she was forced into. Alopex seemed to imply that Tigerclaw was either responsible for or killed their family, or parents at least. If this is so, why? What fully caused their clash asides from that? I’m going to assume that at some point season 5 will revisit this.

I was surprised that they showed Tigerclaw’s hand getting cut off in the way that it was. Surprised it got past the censors.

April picking up on aura stuff now…don’t know why that bothered me. I think that would be better suited for Leo for some reason. Who knows. I don’t mind her sixth sense kicking in as that was established back in season 1 that she’d “always” had feelings about things, but to see aura? Guess that’s too much for me. Just her saying she has a feeling she can’t explain pertaining to Casey, would’ve suited me fine…not that he has bad juju, that feels more Leo or Mikey’s territory….maybe more so Mikey.

Alcohol and drugs…lovely. lol Seeing Splinter drunk just completely threw me. I so was not expecting that! lol His badass, “Maybe I don’t need a sword” was funny and it was interesting to finally see Casey in on one of their sparring sessions with Splinter. The foreshadowing is just slapping you in the face by this point. Anyway, his drunken style…I noticed that quite a few of the moves resembled Jackie Chan’s in Drunken Master 2, especially the part with Donnie. IMO, I think Splinter was drinking before he started the training session.I’ve never seen someone get that drunk so fast. lol Was I the only one imagining what Splinter could’ve been saying when shaking the others around. “Why did that (insert expletive here) ruin my life! He took my daughter away! He took Teng Shen away! I like to (insert something surprising that you couldn’t imagine a character like Splinter’s being into).” lol I dunno, would’ve been interesting if he started sprouting some nonsense, like, “While you guys are asleep, I sneak out to the casinos in Jersey”…I dunno. lol

Oh that truck driver. I think we can infer from his scene that be was drinking and driving before hitting Casey and the others. “Drinking is bad, mmmkay.” lol

Oh, nice throwback to the Deadly Venom. Would’ve liked it more if Casey would’ve mentioned how he was poisoned instead of just thinking it and would’ve said, without thinking, “Her kiss was great…” in a dreamy way only because I would like to see how the others would’ve reacted. lol I’m sure it would’ve been funny to see, especially Leo’s.

Oh yeah, back to Tigerclaw having his arm severed and getting high…I bet he’ll be sniffing even more to deal with the pain. lol Poor Tigerclaw. lol No eye, part of an ear, no tail, has been kicked or hit in the balls a lot (Casey’s done it, April’s done it, Karai has), and now no arm. Poor “Tony”…sucks he can’t “clap” anymore. Man I love Raph’s lines. They’re always a treat to listen to.

So, not much else I can say. Like I said, I really did like this episode, learning more about Tigerclaw, and the introduction of Alopex, but liked last week’s episode a bit more. It would definitely rank high in my season 4 list, though, if I ever decide to sit down and try to make one. ^^

not sure if anyone else noticed it but during the training session, mikeys showy moves felt like it was a nod toward ninja tribunal when mikey was showing off while fighting the wooden manikin

Just finished the episode. Geez, I did not see that ending coming. Kinda surprised Nick would allow showing TC's hand getting cut off.

I hope this is as far as the show goes with the mutilation of characters, It can be quite too much, and to the point it can get annoying.

The last time we had something like this was with the 2003 series, When Baxter Stockman kept getting mutilated after certain episodes, Then all that was left of him was a brain in a jar.

I think the show will jump the shark, if at some point TigerClaw ends up being a half mutant tiger, half cyborg.
