A new arc and while the Turtles are settling into their new routine the “Earth Defence Force” are making their moves. It looks as though they are collecting mutants and the first is Slash. Slash has been through a lot and it seems like he’s going to go through a whole lot more. The mutants don’t get a chance to really fight back and there are some touching moments as they don’t understand. Meanwhile the Turtles are disagreeing as to where to go next – Leo wants to have a plan and be prepared, and has some interesting soul searching with Splinter. The other brothers also make some good points, but the ending leads to them having to team up. A very interesting next chapter!
