At this point the series is just getting crazier and crazier. I can’t really talk about it anymore without spoilers – so take that as fair warning. Okay?
Okay: so Splinter is the head of The Foot now; but they’re good. But Splinter is doing some stuff that is making the Turtles very uncomfortable. He let their inventor friend, Harold be taken captive (read: bait) by the Street Phantoms; he got Casey Jones to run a fellow street gang, the Purple Dragons; he well, murdered the head of the Street Phantoms.
And now there’s this big fall-out. Earlier Mikey had felt like he couldn’t be a part of this. But his brothers convinced him to come back to The Foot. But now all of the Turtles feel like they don’t even understand what they are fighting for here. So it seems like they will all be striking out on their own and leaving Splinter behind.
It’s weird to see this turn of events. It’s been weird. And knowing Splinter it feels like something has to be up. He’s always been so wise and honorable. I don’t know.
