    This is probably my favorate episode of the show so far and one of the darkest episodes of the show. Other than a week sub plot with the other turtles chasing after another mutagen canister, the real story was with Raphel and the new villain Slash. On a sidenote liked that little bit of humor with Mikey playing that "Defender" like video game, two of the things he said were funny when he was at an end boss he then has a moment of dread where he says "what am I going to or when he lost the game he says "Noooo, I was so close". Yeah, I can emphasize with those two things sometimes when I encounter a new boss I get a little nervious mainly because you don't know their attack pattern at first, but also just that painstaking feeling of being really close to beating a level on a video game only to get taken out by some obstacle from out of nowhere or simply something I failed to avoid.



    Slash doesn't disappoint he could be my favorate villain in this series. He's sort of like Sabertooth from "X-Men" like that villain Slash is a character that is completely tapped into his dark side, his primal animalistic nature. He's the perfect anthisis to Raphel because he represents Raphel's darkest desires and nature that Raph at times is one step close to becoming but never does because Raph knows his limitations. I really like the voice acting by Corey Feldman whom was the voice of Donetello in the 1990 live action film; his voice was perfect because he actually sounded scary, just his gravelly tone that felt like every word could cut you. I even like the new design of Slash which made him menessing and was a bit remonicent of the design of the mutant Toka from the second live action film, I'd love to see Slash team up with Razar since his presence was hinted at in this show.



    The back and forth between both Raphel and Slash is great and suspenseful, it almost reminds me a little of the back and forth in the suspense thriller film "The Hicher". What I like about most of what Slash says to Raphel is actually true whether he wants to admit to it or not, Raph does at times want to do his own thing rules or none, wants to bring adiquite punishment to the guilty. But Slash feels the company he keeps is holding him back, not letting him do what he wants to do or really understand him as well as he does, let alone a little jelious; so Slash's solution is to take all three brothers out of the picture.



    To me what makes Raphel great like most anti heroes, despite tapped into their darkside, they still have a code of ethics that regulates and justifies their actions. This is what sets him apart from Slash, but also that deep down inside he does love his brothers even though he doesn't show it.



    The fight between Raph, Slash, as well at the Turtles doesn't disappoint. Slash was really doing damage to each of the Turtles, we saw bruses, cuts, and Donny's arm was broken. This really created a feeling of a real struggle, as well as an element of jeperdy because at some points I wasn't sure if Raph and the others were going to win the fight against Slash. Of course Raph and the other turtles triumph in the end but Slash will be back.



    With every hero/superhero there is always a villain/supervillain with their crosshairs lined up.moreless
