You didn't miss much. I think I'll do an alternate ending of it on fanfic.net

Eh it's ok, I did watch it believe it or not, as much as I don't care for the lost season lol.
I may not like all of it but I'm still a TMNT fan regardless and can see the good and bad in things, which each series has.

Just watched it on ootube-yay, and it was decent. The whole Yoshi spirit thing didn't make sense to me, but I'm sure one of ya'll can give me some wild explanation.

Highlight of the episode was Bishop and his commandos vs. the creatures, that was truly awesome.

Other than the obvious anime knock off Dragon bit, which I kinda knew about and was waiting to see how it panned out, I enjoyed this episode. I really did.

Highlights-

Baxter is so suicidal in this one. "Can't I just expire in peace?" But then again, he did get chomped to near death by Shredder Dragon.

Hun getting major league denied from illusionary treasure.

Karia and that science guy hooking up at the end.

And of course, Ancient one becoming a Tribunal member.

But on a more negative scale, where the shell were Casey and April? They didn't even get an obligitory "Yeay! They did it!" scene near the end. Plus it would have been great to have a scene where Karai finally forgives the turtles for all she has done. But they left that open.

Well I liked this episode quite a bit. I think it was a good conclusion to this season. It tied up all loose ends- while still allowing potential for more seasons to come.

Well, they WERE all alone in the lair and April wasn't doing the "tech support" she claimed she was going to do, so....

You see where I'm going with this.

Probably one of the better season finales. The lack of April and Casey at the conclsion didnt bother me, and the Turtle/Dragon thing leading to Yoshi's spirit cutting down Saki was a true moment of clousre...of course, had this been the final season it'd make more sense, now it just looks like closure for Yoshi alone.

Karai not forgiving the Turtles was a better development for the character. It's rather cliched and "gay" to even think that she'd forgive them for taking Ch'rell, her surrogate parent, from her, but she knows vengeance cant be allowed to consume her life when others like Chaplin love her so much. I hope Karai's daughter is introduced in Back To The Sewers

About the April/Casey thing, I didn't even notice It just would have been cliche to have them go "yay, alrigh! good job!", but it's odd that they were tottaly absent.

Like some one already said, they were probaby "busy" creating Cody's gradmother/father, LOL!

As for Karai's daughter, I know people will hate me for this, but I really don't want Chaplin and Karai to have a kid together!

For nit-pickery's sake, it'd be Grampa Jones or an older sibling of his.

That's pretty much like what I said last week. it really feels like an episode that could be the finalie for the 2K3 Turtles, period. yes, a bit anime-esque (and I'm not just referring to the fact they had the big showdown with ultimate evil, but the fact they had almost everything from past episodes referenced, and the bad guys fight on the good guys side, amoung other things). But that's how you end an episode. I wonder if they were thinking, in the back of their minds, that they could have ended it there.

Hmm, you know, that's a good point. I of course was thinking that by the end of the lost season, she'd have given up her fight with the turtles- as the Notebook episode of FF hinted at Leo and Karai working side by side, yet Leo doesn't quite trust her. I guess that's more bridge to cross in back to the Sewers.

But seriously, throughout this whole season, I just couldn't help think about how they all shot themselves in the foot by not making a Lost Season toy line. Yes, we had the Mystic Turtles, but that was pretty much more as a promotional tie in with the video game TMNT III. I mean, the Dragon Turtles, if done right, would have been kinda cool. But out of all the vehicles we got, we never had the Tourtuga Bros. moving Van or the Turtle Taxi (when they were clearly hinting at them being toys). Guess BTTS is going to be the only chance with those 2.

Considering Karai's daughter is canon in the comics, with her father never being revealed, and the incorporation of aspects of this series into comics canon (like the Foot Mystics), I'd say there's a good chance they WILL be having children.

You don't know how happy that would make me. Shadow is one of my favourite characters and I've been bugging everyone who will listen to me at Mirage and 4Kids to get her into 2K3 somewhere...

Gotta say I liked the part where shredder was starting to mouth off his evil spill to Yoshi & then Yoshi (without saying a word) just slices away mid-sentence shutting Shredder up.

Otherwise it didn't have a normal "TMNT" feel for me. Too much "out of this world" stuff going on...can't wait to get back to the good ol' sewers.

Eh, I thought the episode was ok. I wasn't really crazy about this season. I didn't really care for Fast Forward, but I actually prefer it to this Lost Season. I really couldn't get into the whole mystic powers thing, and I hated the Dragon Turtles. As much as I don't like the Turtles in the future, I'd rather see them in the future than using mystic anime powers and turning into damn dragons. Anyway, like Noah'Dib said, I'm looking forward to them going back to the sewers.
