My thoughts of the season final of the 2nd season of TMNT 2012: (Warning, spoilers)
So, now I've seen the final episode now. I was realy looking fiorward to finaly see it and I had high expectations.
And how did it hold up? It was awosme! Everything I love with this series was there! The drama, the action, the fighting scenes and the humor! I loved every second of it.
Some of my favorite moments was Leo having to foght the foot clan all by himself, Mikey giving Raph a hug to calm him down, Leatherhead comming back, the awsome fight between Splinter and Shredder and the moment when April seemd to understand Donnie has feelings for her. As he was just about to tell her, she clearly reacted. All of this makes this my favorite episode so far. It was beyond my expectations in many cases.
However...... ... ..
Irma was a what??
So if I understand this correctly; Irma was all this time just a Kraang-spy? There was never a "real" Irma?... ok... ok... ok...
I was acctualy so confused watching this I had to paus and think about it so that it would not disturb me during the rest of the episode.
Parts of me thinks this was a awsome plot twist, but other parts of me are still confused and feel like they did not use the potential drama enought. For example, Irma and Casey seemed to take it all extramly well that close friend of theirs was a alien robot all along. So I'm kinda devided here. It could have been alot better if this was handled better if you ask me. They could have made April really sad or make her face the kraang that controlled the Irma-bot. Instead it was more like "My best friend all there years was an aliens... sucks..."
The fun thing is that I remember I ranted about there being something speciall with Irma several weeks or months ago. I think I even mentioned it here on DA, but I was convinced Irma was or would become a mutant, and that it would piss me off. And it kinda did. It's kinda the style of this show to make ordinary humans into something unordinary. April is hybrid alinen-mutnat-human and all the original human cast has become mutants, except Shredder and Casey, althou there two are not realy "ordinary" people. So I guess I was kinda right.
So that's my thoughts.
