** BittersweetEnding: They did succeed in stopping the Kraang bomb and saving the city, while proving themselves capable of handling Xever and Bradford (though this is also the episode they have now mutated in).

* RealityEnsues: The Turtles are barely able to lay a blow to Shredder, who has decades more training and combat experience in martial arts than them. He is also a pragmatic fighter, using his environment to electrify Raph and later cause a letter to fall on Mikey.



* WhamEpisode: It starts out innocently enough with the Turtles investigating a [[ItMakesSenseInContext mutant pigeon]]...then the turtles plan to break out Mr. O'Neil from the compound he's being held only for them to make a SadisticChoice and save themselves rather than free him. THEN they have to defuse a bomb that's going to cover the entire city in ooze while fighting Xever and Bradford (both of whom get mutated by the chemical in said bomb). If that wasn't bad enough they then get their first battle with the Shredder which ultimately ends with them all nearly getting killed and Splinter ending the episode by stating that the Shredder won't go away and his sons have officially gone to war.
