Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Serpent Hunt

After returning to the Kraang-formed New York, creating a new temporary home in an abandoned pizza shop, and locating their master, the Turtles turn their attention to seeking out the one missing member of their family - Karai (Kelly Hu). The trouble is they aren't the only looking for her.

Hoping to use the Shredder's (Kevin Michael Richardson) daughter as a bargaining chip to get passage out of New York Ivan Steranko (Fred Tatasciore) and Anton Zeck (J.B. Smoove) team-up to catch the snake. Of course Shredder also has his own minions on the search with Fishface (Christian Lanz) and Rahzar (Clancy Brown) sniffing out a trail. In the end the three teams will only get in each other's way leaving Karai once again on her own but also leading the Shredder to exact a little vengeance and use his two newest prisoners as his latest genetic test subjects finally ushering in the new cartoon's version of two fan favorite characters.

Longtime fans of the characters are going to be pleased (and maybe even a bit surprised) with the final few minutes of the episode introducing us to the new versions of Rocksteady and Bebop. Although far different characters than the original I'll be interested to see how the show incorporates them into Shredder's mutant army and how long it takes them before they embrace their new lives.
