The Turtles are still on the search for the last fragment but unfortunely shredder finds the very last fragment and connects all three to his helmet and uses it as a deadly weapon but a battle with the turtles causes shredder to use the helment however it ends up in the hands a former employee of April's tv crew who soon discovers it's power, but Baxter finds him and take the helmet. Shredder discovers that baxter is also looking for the helmet so he leaves.

Baxter even tries to make a monster out of gold but discovers that the eye doesn't work on anything that is made of that substance. Shredder is able to wrest back control of the helmet from baxter, and he creates an army of giant golems at the san fracisco bridge. The Turtles discover that the fragments are becoming dangerously unstable, and they race to tell the villain to rid himself of the eye before it explodes!

Shredder, of course, does'nt believe thier story and orders his golems to attack the turtles. The eye fianlly begins to self-destruct. Now aware of it's danger, shredder tosses his helmet into the water, just as the eye explodes, there is a huge tidal wave, and after it subsides, only the turtles are left standing.

  • great conclusion to the eye of sarnoth saga

    I loved how the eye can create stuff from objects, but gold is its limitation. I loved how blodget the news driver was involved and how vernon had the authority to fire him for causing the news van to go into the river and he rescued april and he got her job back, but replacing hte newsvan came out of his salary. I loved how baxter betrayed shredder. I loved how he created taj mahal and made the glue monster etc. I loved how shredder said \"I\'ll bare that in mind when I deliver your eulogy you traitours vermin\". When the tidlewave on the bridge came, shredder disappeared. where did he go and in the next ep he was around. how did he and baxter get back together in the next episode.moreless
  • Weird plotline... But I'm all for that with Ninja Turtles!!!

    The Zarnovameter, as Donatello calls it, can locate the third fragment. Too late! Shredder beat them to it... again! Now he's making everything come to life, like that dragon on the Chinese takeout box! Then Blodgett, one of the lackeys at Channel 6 finds it and turns his apartment into lots of cool stuff. Baxter, infuriated because Shredder will not pay attention to his inventions, goes off and finds the Zarnovameter that Donatello dropped. He finds the helmet, and turns a warehouse into the Taj Mahal! Weird... then he makes a sludge monster to wipe out the Turtles, but Shredder stops the traitor! Then they fight, but Shredder takes the Zarnovameter, but it reacts with the eye to destroy the remains of Zarnov.moreless
  • Fantastic!

    This episode is also another great installment to the Ninja Turtle series. The Eye of Zarnoth series is amazing to watch. The makers of this show are great people. I don't know how they do it. This episode doesn't have my favorite plot in this saga, but I enjoyed it very much to say the least.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Baxter's lightning monster attacks the Turtles, Raphael protects himself using his sais. The nitpick here is metal conducts electricity, not absorbs it; Raphael should be getting fried!

    • After Leonardo's sword was hit with the eye and turned into an ice cream cone it showed both of his swords on his back.

    • When Baxter created a glue monster, everyone's outside. After the commercial break, the monster and the turtles are inside the palace that Baxter made.

    • When Shredder gets his helmet back, the Eye is on upside down.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (Donatello and Raphael face off against Shredder)
      Donatello: Give it up, Shredder.
      Shredder: Come and get it, you genetic accidents!

    • Shredder: I'll bear that in mind, Baxter. When I deliver your eulogy. You traitorous vermin!

    • Raphael: Self-confident sort of super-villain isn't he?
      Shredder: You would be too..If you had "this!"
      (Shredder places his helmet back onto his head, revealing the Eye on the front of it, in all it's glimmering glory)
      Leonardo: (gasps) The Eye of Zarnov!!
