* Donnie: In the hands of the Kraang it’s a definite “oh no.”
* Raph: This isn’t over Fishface.
* Splinter: Knowing that your enemy will strike is a given. But sensing when he will strike can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
* April: When was the last time you saw someone hit a guy over the head with their mind?
* Splinter: I had intended to one-day pass this on to my daughter but I would like you have it.
Synopsis: The Kraang are moving a high end piece of science. Stockman and Shredder’s mutants are also watching. The turtles and they fight, with Kraang caught in the middle. In the lair, Splinter is training the turtles. At Shredder’s hideout Stockman tricks him into pairing him off with Fishface and company. They set a trap for the turtles, and they fall for it. April is training with Splinter. The turtles have now fallen into Baxter’s trap. But he also sends Shredder’s mutants into the trap as well. Now they are all in the maze and start fighting. The maze is interactive and they have to adapt to survive it. Splinter and April try and find a weapon for her. But it’s not going well. Back in the maze everyone is being too nice to each other. Another challenge faces them with flying balls that have blades in them. Then Baxter drops walls and splits the group up. Donnie reconfigures his phone to help them escape. Mikey is charged with keeping Stockman distracted. Splinter and April continue trying to find a weapon for her. She nearly breaks a photo of Splinter’s family. He tells her his daughter would be her age. The turtles continue having fun in the maze with more challenges, this time a powerful fan. Raph and Xever, off by themselves, have a conversation about how he came to work with Shredder. He was recruited by Shredder after stealing from him. Dogpound starts screaming and it allowed Raph and Fishface to find them. They manage to break the maze and find Stockman. He then hops in his robot and starts attacking them all. They try to get an advantage. Stockman is furious because they all worked together and by doing so defeated him. Back in April’s training Splinter gives April a fan that is also a weapon. The turtles and mutants finally escape the maze. They are all so exhausted they just go home.
