Official Episode Discussion #21: "Karai's Vendetta"

Greetings everyone!

Well, it looks like we're back to the same Saturday morning schedule. It'll be airing at 11am EST, so make sure you set your DVR (or VHS, for us lo-tech types)

Alright, so the April and Karai Conspiracy theorists will definitely be tuning in this week. Apparent while the boys are trying to sneak into another Kraang base, it seems the Foot Clan will be working on a special project of their own.

Apparently Karai's pet Kraang has turned into a regular stool-pigeon, and boy has he been singing. The Shredder's finding out some Very interesting information about our young April. There's a lot more to April than we have been shown, and she now looks like something that the foot could have good leverage with..

So off Karai goes, ready to hogtie April and drag her back to the Shredder. But when Karai tries to take her captive, it seems the show is about to drop a major bombshell that could change everything about what she knows about the turtles, April and even herself.

This could be the big moment where Karai sees Splinter for the first time, or we could learn that April's part alien robot, anything is possible at this point.


WILL APRIL AND KARAI HAVE THEIR FIRST CAT FIGHT?!
WILL WE FIND OUT MORE ABOUT KARAI'S BACKGROUND?!
IS APRIL A ALIEN, ROBOT, NEUTRINO, DRAWING, GENETIC EXPERIMENT OR SOME OTHER CRITTER?!
WILL SPLINTER FINALLY GET HIS BUTT OUT OF THE LAIR AND FIGHT?!


Stay Tuned!!!

Great episode, just zoomed by.

"Mikey! That victory dance better not last more than 4 seconds!"

Good stuff, that sea monster in love bit was veeeery awkward though.

Regarding the Karai-April fight, the actual hand-to-hand combat bit went about as I expected it would, and it's probably about how their little confrontation in the 2007 movie should have gone as well, with the girl in yellow being hopelessly outclassed.

Gotta love how both April & Karai had the foresight to make sure they put on their helmets for the motorcycle chase in the heat of the moment. Safety first!

What an explosive episode!

-April is immune to Kraang water!?!

-Turtle soup Karai? That's harsh...

-Cool to see Karai in civillian clothes... The same from her trading card!

-That Monster from Dimension X... So different from Traag...I wonder what else lies beyond that portal.

-It fell in LOVE with the SUB!!!

-Poor April.. She really got hurt out there! But she pulled through and made it home alive!

-Looks like April will be staying with her "brothers" in the sewer from now on... I wonder what she will tell her aunt?

This was Russ and Ron's last episode they wrote for the series, and they did an amazing job!

Got a chance to see it this morning. Have to admit I had it on tv in the background, not really paying much attention. I really paid attention to the Karai April stuff, I liked the whole chase and eventually April and Karai fight. It was nice that April didn't totally kick Karai's butt in the first battle, it keeps Karai strong.

That was not mutagen, it was "Kraang Water", water found in dimension x that doesn't react well with earth and things/people on it.

Leo and Karai didn't interact at all in this episode.
Spoiler:
Karai finds out that April lost her mother, and she did too since she is Miwa, and she lost Tang Shen, her mother.

Actually she got hit pretty bad by Karai. April just caught her off guard. Really a great episode. Especially when April mentions she lost her mother.

Certainly adds credence to the theory that April might be a native being of Dimension X, doesn't it?

I liked Karia feeling bad for April's mom, cause she lost her mom. And liked stealth mode on the sub, when all the lights go off the turtles look like they have red bandanas.

Is she really immune to Kraang water? Something told me (if I can recall) that the water hit her bracelet and nothing happened. What if her bracelets are of alien origin?

Yet, I could be wrong. What do you think?

Does Karai show any anger towards Leo? Alright, I'll stop asking questions, really

Thanks again for the help

I'm sorry but this is probably my least favourite Episode right now. Everything had a strong build up and the premise was there...but all of that was executed abysmally!

First of all, NOTHING was revealed in this Episode. The closest we got was that Dimension X Liquid dropping on April and having no effect. THATS IT!

Secondly, the pacing was just bad. We went from the first act (which was actually the best part of the episode) straight to the third act! WTF was up with that. The whole time I was expecting some sort of bombshell being dropped at the end but that never happened.

Finally, that April & Karai fight scene was by far the worst I've seen in this series! There was no tension, no sense of danger when it was clearly needed. The ending was so abrupt and half-assed that I almost didn't even believe this kind of poor quality Episode happened.

I didn't mean to be so negative but that is my honest opinion. Best part of the episode was the Dimension X Creature (Again, that love scene was just not needed and it seemed half-assed the way the writers put it) and the undersea Kraang base was pretty cool.

This has been the first Episode to truly dissapoint me on EVERY level! I'm sorry but this Episode had nothing to offer. Almost Terrible
(4/10) "Karai's Vendetta" Hoping next time, they come up with something better.

I really liked Shredder and Karai trying to communicate with that Kraang at the beginning. But my question is, where did Dogpound and Fishface go? We didn't see them in the last episode OR this one, you'd think that we'd at least see them hanging around Shredder's lair...oh, and I'm happy that April is living with the turtles now, because now we'll see more of her. This has got to be my favorite incarnation of April yet! Oh, and Splinter licking Raph
