out of curiosity just how old are you all?
20 (Why am I older than some of you? Weird… -___-)
37 boom in your mug. :)
Now I have this problem where I dont have any RL friends who watch this (I’m supposed to be an adult, lol wat?) and so I have no one to charge me feelings at. WELL internet you can have them!
Summarised however: After last weeks episode and that amount of jokes that were definitely aimed at a higher audience “We’re not that kinda sub!” ( I dont even know if that was intentional but dear lord I died) I think that the writers are now aware that they have a rather large older (if not adult) audience, which is good. :)
*spoilers behind the cut.*
Have you noticed that whenever someone is mutated, their new form tends to carry over exaggerated characteristics from their human life? For instance, as a human, “Vic” spat toxic words as a habit, but as Spiderbytes he spat literal poison. “Snake” lived up to his namesake in terms of his conniving personality, and then became a weed monster perhaps in reference to being a “weed” to society. Bradford was intimidating and fiercely loyal, and as a canine he embodies those qualities.
Then again, maybe I’m reading too much into it. Do those examples seem like I’m stretching?
The turtles never wanted Timothy around. When he was mutated, they were physically repulsed.
Something else that stood out to me in this episode was how drastic the consequences are for everyone’s actions — not just in this episode, but especially so. Timothy might never have joined The Foot if Donatello’s training hadn’t encouraged him. He might not have volunteered to mutate if Leonardo hadn’t assigned him to keep spying on them. They might have been able to rescue him if Splinter hadn’t restricted them from using their weapons. If Timothy hadn’t been so eager to be like his heroes, he might not have been so enthusiastic about mutation.
Just about every mutant on the show is the result of the turtles screwing up.
Spoilers for “The Pulverizer Returns!”
It was mentioned several times in the episode that the mutagen is dangerously unpredictable. Maybe the last thing he did before it happened was to pick his nose.
