    And so, after five long years, TMNT 2K3 draws to a close. Sure, the continuity will live on through Back to the Sewers, but this episode marks the end of the original style and the end of new episodes on Fox (as TMNT is moving new episodes to CW in the fall). The ending to this season even felt like a series finale.

    Here's to hoping that Back to the Sewers is up to par with the first five seasons of the continuity.

    I don't know if he's really dead the Acolytes and Ninja Tribunal "died" and they came back.

    Yeah, but they're humans, so they're protected by S&P (IIRC, there's an unwritten rule that human characters can be thought of as dead, but have to be brought back by the end of the series).

    Shredder, however, is an ancient demon, so he's allowed to be killed off. :p

    Right but the Tribunal said that everthing isn't always as it appears to be.

    Bishop kicks butts. No doubt about it. Not big on his red Tron suit though. I liked it better when he was in plain Mulder duds. It makes him seem more dangerous... I always like strong characters with unassuming look. Off course this was a battle but that eyepiece he's always wearing at base? Gets tiring.

    Aww... that moment with Chaplin and Karai was just so sweet! Her in her deadly battle armor, him in his geeky 'scientist warrior' outfit :p walking hand in hand toward the rising sun...so nice.

    So... are the mystical weapons gonna stick around? With the pendants destroyed (as a conduit for Yoshi's soul??) I guess the Turtles can't use their mystical powers anymore, but they didn't have to give back their weapons... are they still gonna be there next season? Same question goes to the acolyte... and the relationship between the Turtles and Karai seems to have soften up...

    Oh and was I dreaming or were some of those zombies actually Foot ninjas?!

    Some of them did look like Foot soldiers, but I'm not sure. Anyone have a screencap?

    It's pretty apparent then that Utrom Shredder based his entire Foot design off of the original Tengu Shredder's creatures and soldiers.

    End-of-the-world sex.

    Casey and April have always been pushed to the sidelines for these kinds of battles, if they're involved at all--they were also relegated to mission control in Return to New York way back then, so it's not an entirely new thing. As to why we didn't get a scene with them, I'll say it's mostly because of time concerns more than anything else.

    Yeah--, and Karai's, too, from the looks of it. The Demon Shredder is a one-man zombie-maker, it seems.

    Um...no. C.F. Volpehart, Tang Shen, Yukio Mashimi, Hamato Yoshi. All humans, all very definitively dead.
