** Given what we saw when Raph and the mutanimals were being controlled, she was probably fully aware of the things the brainworm made her do, but was powerless to stop it.

* Splinter's back-story from [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E1RiseOfTheTurtlesPart1 the first]] [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E2RiseOfTheTurtlesPart2 episode]]. People familiar with previous versions would know the details, but to make it worse, in this universe, [[spoiler:Splinter also had a daughter]].
** To make things [[FromBadToWorse even sadder for poor Splinter]], [[spoiler: it turns out that Shredder has a hold of her. She never really ''died'', per se- Shredder just raised her into a fighting machine that ''hates'' Splinter with her very core. Folks, say hello to this universe's version of Karai.]]

*** What really takes the cake was that Karai was caught off guard when April mentioned her mother, implying that she has some troubles with her ''own'' MissingMom. This becomes HarsherInHindsight when we find out that [[spoiler: she's actually Splinter and Tang Shen's daughter]].
** Also at the very end of the episode: [[spoiler: April has to go into hiding as both the Kraang and Shredder are now after her. Forced out of her old life because of forces beyond her control or will. Living that kind of like would make anyone else give up hope.]]
* Remember the Pulverizer from way back when? Well, in "Pulverizer Returns", his obsession with becoming a hero like the Turtles takes a more dramatic turn when he[[spoiler: intentionally exposes himself to the mutagen. However, instead of turning into a humanoid animal, the mutagen painfully turns him into a blob monster who mindlessly lashes out at his surroundings until the Turtles can trap him. Yes, he was an idiot and it was his own fault, but he didn't deserve ''that''! Things like that shouldn't happen to comic relief!]]

*** Not to mention the pain and anger in Karai's voice when Splinter retreats and she yells "Why won't you fight?! COWARD!" Her MissingMom situation has really affected her emotionally.

* Metalhead's ShootTheShaggyDog-ness in the episode overall. [[spoiler: Metalhead has finally been upgraded with intelligence in order to work alongside the Turtles, only for them to not trust him due to how much of a 3rd wheel he winds up becoming. Realizing this, Metalhead leaves on his own to take care of the mission by himself to show the turtles he was on their side the whole time, not only rescuing ALL the mutants and the turtles, but also [[HeroicSacrifice destroying himself in order to ensure the Kraang would not find another way to get back to Earth]]]]. The ending implies that Donatello will fix him again, but it really makes the viewers feel for Metalhead's loyalty to his team and creator.

* That whole episode is one for Karai. She learns that basically her whole life has been a lie. [[spoiler: Not only is the man whom she believed to be her father responsible for her mother's death, he also kidnapped her and fueled her hatred against her real father. Her shock and facial expressions upon learning the truth are just ''heartbreaking'']].

Still somewhat hoping it was all just a lie, she asks him if Splinter really is her father. What does Shredder do? He [[BluntYes bluntly says "Yes"]] and orders Tiger Claw to take her away.

It shows just how much of Shredder's humanity his thirst for revenge has consumed. Rather than take responsibility for his actions, he can only think to blame the one who he's spent his entire life blaming for his misfortunes. It's both sad and terrifying to see someone so consumed by a grudge as to be incapable of grasping the concept a misfortune of theirs isn't the fault of their enemy.]]

** When Shredder lands the finishing blow, Raphael and April cry out "Father!" and "Splinter!" in anguish.
** The turtles' final moments with their father is heartbreaking, especially for Nickelodeon standards. Leonardo holds Splinter's body while saying "No! Please!", Michelangelo only says a meek "Papa...", and all four turtles sob while memories with Splinter flash on the screen. They then carry the body like pallbearers and drive away...

* Maybe a minor one, but seeing Splinter in the opening credits after his death and funeral reminds you how important he was to the turtles, April, and everyone else. The scene of the turtles' mutation is shown, then Splinter giving the turtles their masks, and finally..

\n* During the final battle, Leonardo lets out his grief and anger at Splinter's murder. As he condemns Shredder throughout their duel, his voice is equal parts vengeful fury and verge-of-tears sorrow.
-->'''Leonardo:''' You killed him! He was your brother, and you ''killed him!'' (Between exchanged blows) He was your ''brother,'' Saki! Your best friend! How could you ''do that?!''
** And on the tail end of that, Super Shredder hesitates as Leo points out that he's turned into a monster. [[HopeSpot For just a moment]], Oroku Saki's last remnants of sanity seem to emerge, as if he's aware of what he's become. [[spoiler: And then Leo attacks while Shredder's distracted, and whatever was left of the Foot Clan leader's conscience is lost as he furiously retaliates.]]

to:

** Made all the more powerful by the fact that there's no spoken dialogue. No sobbing, no eulogies - just a montage of the Hamato Clan and its allies gathering around Splinter's grave. Then, one by one, everyone but the turtles walks away, with the four brothers being the last to go.

* Leonardo off alone by himself after the funeral, questioning whether he's ready to step into Splinter's role as the BigGood. You can tell the poor guy's got some big shoes to fill, and he doubts he can measure up.

* Splinter's funeral, The turtles, along with Shinigami, April, Casey, the Mighty Mutanimals, Chompy, Ice Cream Kitty, and even Kirby O' Neil and Dr. Cluckingsworth (Who had never even met Splinter before.) All attending, and since Karai was injured in the hospital, she couldn't be there. April can also be seen crying next to Casey.
