Wow. I nearly cried a couple times during this episode, and I am usually not the emotional type!
Leo has always been my favourite character, and even though I knew he would be okay in the end, I was still worried for him. All throughout the episode I kept hoping he would wake up. Of course, he does in the end. More dramatic I guess XD
The flashbacks were wonderful to watch. It was neat to see the four as kids! Donny still loved building gadgets, in this case a remote control car, Mikey loved to be annoying when he was being ignored and Raph was still a hothead. So much for phases! I think my favourite flashback was Master Splinter's. Tricking Leo into getting over his fear of heights was a brillent idea, in my opinion. I wish someone could have done that for me!
This was one of the first episodes I saw, so I didn't understand why Baxter looked the way he did, witha mechanical arm, odd wheelchair-thing and a missing eye. Now that I know, I cannot help but feel sorry for the guy. Sort of. Fooling the Shredder defenitly was not a good idea.
At the end, I cheered when Leo woke up. As I said before, I knew it was coming but I still get a happy glow whenver I watch it. All around great episode!
