This episode is pretty much the series at its best ... at least as far as stand-alones go. Very emotional moments flooded this ep, plot twists, and a very valuable lesson made this ep a classic. Really shows that the spirit of the Ninja Turtles continues even in this generation.
When Mikey returns to the Battle Nexus to defend his title, all of his laziness comes back to bite him in the azz as he must confront his own demons ... while at the same time stop an evil plot hatched to seal his doom.
Keep up the good work.
