The final episode, "Who Needs Her", focuses on the Turtles mentioning how bad things have happened since Venus joined their ranks, such as her actions bringing them at odds with the series' rogues gallery. Eventually, however, they remember the redeeming qualities of their new member right as she's been captured by the Rank.
