Episode Summary

The Beginning of the End
Having recaptured the mutated Leonardo, the Turtles quickly restore him to normal using the vortex crystal technology. At first, it seems that the experiment has worked this time, but soon Leonardo's foot starts glowing, he still has the disease, and which means it's only a matter of time until he mutates once more...

Dregg commands Mung to take control of a power plant so he can commandeer it's vast supply of plutonium. April, still itching to sink her teeth into a new story, investigates a chop-chop ring at work in the city. Leonardo completely mutates again, and the TMNT once again are thrown into a heated to coral their slightly-more-mutated-than-usual-leader, which takes them across the city and back. The TMNT'S pursuit of Leonardo is interrupted by Dregg, who captures him. Meanwhile, April's investigation of the chop-chop ring leads her right into the arms of dregg's soilders... AGAIN.

On board the Dreggnaught, Dregg informs the turtles, (who had stowed away on the vessel after Dregg captured their leader, only to be captured), informs the turtles that his new vortex crystal-powered generator, will take out the unstable mutated cells in Leonardo's DNA, giving Dregg unlimited access to study and harness the power of the disease to his own ends! After Dregg cures Leonardo with the generator, the Turtles are able to escape and battle Dregg's minions. They rescue April and Leonardo and flee the Dreggnaught, at the same time they prevent Dregg from using the cells to cause further havoc. As the TMNT celebrate the end of their mutation nightmare, their prowess is monitored by Dregg, who informs Mung that he permanently altered Leonardo's DNA structure, and soon he may just put such an alteration to his advantage...moreless
