Uh... Why are the Turtles and the other mutants fighting the EPF here? The Utroms are their common enemy.

Welp, that's a couple of big deaths down. Only a dozen or so more characters to go!

The ending is certainly intriguing. You get a ninja clan, and you get a ninja clan, and you get a ninja clan, everyone gets a ninja clan!

Hm, did I miss something? Why did the weasels turn on Ray like that? Am I forgetting something?

Also Krang wasn't in this issue at all, which is weird because he was still alive (I assume) with Metalhead in the previous issues.

Anyone else finding Ch'rell's death to be... Anti-climactic?

They were apparently mad at Ray for locking them up, I guess.

Only in terms of how brief his final fight scene was, but that’s war for ya.

I hope Ray is alright. Of all the additional mutants in the series, he's not one I wanted to go.

So the ninja magic is just another bad plot devices. Stop everyone fighting, make you trust a terrorist or summon your dark side form. I remember they already broken the rule and still nothing bad happen. Now, they finally realize they have to use it in secret.

I really feel bad for Ray because he's just a pawn in place of Hob's crime. I never like they are trying to excuse Hob from all his crimes.

If they did, this would just make Saki's redemption arc redundant and pointless. I'm curiously if Takeshi Tatsuo/The Dragon will return in another form in the future.

Saki had to be taken off the board somehow in time for the climactic battle, otherwise he would be too powerful of an ally for the Turtles, what with him technically being a reincarnated member of the Pantheon and all. At least that's how I took it, time will tell.

More like The Turtles got weaker after 100 issues. Even some minor villains can put them in a tough fight and almost lose.

It's honestly funny if a lot of my predictions of them killing off a lot (or most?) of the major villains by the time this arc ends comes true. A lot of these characters have been pretty stagnant and around forever, so it's time a lot of characters get wrapped up.

I'm guessing Krang/Metalhead, The Gang of 4 and Rat King will all definitely be dead/done by the end of this arc. Maybe Null too honestly.

Baxter and Hob will likely live beyond this arc, as well as Shredder considering they still have stories to tell with him.

Looks like the evening gloves are back for Mikey. At least the thigh high fetish stuff is gone.

Damn it. I actually enjoyed that they went with Sakis' redemption.
That's never been done before.
They could do very cool things with it.
Like a fight with the resurrected and Dragon Lord possessed corpse of Kari's father, creating a new Shredder in a horrific way.
But no....

Archie dabbled in a redeemed Saki.

Surprise ch’rell was killed since Sami got redeemed we could have him replace him as the main baddie of the turtles. But with Armageddon coming to a close guess we will see a new main villain after this
