Synopsis: Mikey and Donnie practice together. Splinter teaches Donnie a lesson. Donnie works on his master plan to get April to hang with him. But Leo tells him to just ask her to hang out. April pops in and shows them a tv spot about a missing scientist named Dr. Rockwell. She thinks the Kraang might have taken him. Donnie and April go to his lab to check it out. Donnie finds a tube of mutagen. Dr. Falco, Dr. Rockwell’s partner, attacks them. He tells them the Kraang hired Rockwell to experiment. He was experimenting on a monkey. As they leave the lab they are followed and attacked by a mutant monkey. Donnie gets thrashed. The monkey approaches April and calms him down. But then he takes off. April helps the injured Donnie back to the lair. The guys tease him. And April defends Donnie. Donnie is upset by his loss. Splinter tries to comfort him and uses Mikey to demonstrate fighting without thinking. April goes through Rockwell’s notes and he was experimenting with mutagen. He modified to try and give someone psychic abilities. They decide to find the monkey. Donnie unveils his newest invention, the T-Phone. Topside they start tracking the monkey. They lost him, but April finds him hiding in a dumpster. April realizes that monkey is Dr. Rockwell. They take him to Dr. Falco, who sedates him and promises to help him. Back at the lair Raph brings pizza. Splinter asks April how she knew the monkey was really a human. She tells him she gets a feeling. Donnie is going through the research again. He realizes there was no monkey and it’s the work of Dr. Falco. Back at the lab Falco takes some of Rockwell’s blood and injects it into himself. Now he’s got crazy psychic powers. Falco defeats Raph. They each fail as they are thinking while fighting. Donnie figures out how to fight without thinking and beats Dr. Falco. However, he escapes. The free Dr. Rockwell. Back at the lair Splinter tells April that he would like to train her to be a ninja.
