ON THE TOPIC OF SUPER SHREDDER-him being on diallysis and what-not brings up an interesting topic, he is HUMAN. All the time he has been savagely beaten either by Splinter, the Turtles, or Karai, those injuries piled up until he ended up NEEDING mutagen to supe him self up. Its a weirdly realistic edge to the character. Plus UGH that imagery of him on his sick bed was just GLORIOUS!

I highly disagree about that being realistic. Aside from the fire damage he suffered over a decade ago, Shredder has never demonstrated a major injury as far as I remember. Yes he was beaten in battle a couple of times before this, but no injury he got ever lasted past one episode. You would think Stockman or Tiger Claw or sombody would be seen tending to his injuries if he was ever significantly hurt, but before [[Earth's Last Stand]] this show was like "Nope, Shredder is evil ninja Superman. And Splinter is his Kryptonite." I was ''kind of'' ok with that as long as they consistently made sense of it, but this episode breaks the logical aspect.

They are severely exaggerating the extent of Shredder's injuries. Splinter literally just used pressure point techniques on him before actually landing a hit that badly hurt him. Shredder survived being chomped on multiple times by {{2012link|Leatherhead}} and then thrown through metal beams with apparently no injury at all, yet just because it was ''Splinter'' that beat him, his whole face needs to be bandaged up for no apparent reason aside from the possibility that they are finally deciding to censor his ugly, gruesome-looking face.

This is the first time (that I'm aware of) that Shredder was knocked down so bad that he couldn't get up. THAT made sense, because that is the point of striking pressure points: to prevent or limit movement. What DOESN'T make sense is Shredder's injuries. He wasn't even knocked out! He clearly wasn't bleeding anywhere, his eyes were open and he was breathing normally, well, grunting normally. He just looked like a guy on the ground that couldn't move, which again makes sense. But Splinter hits him in the face once... while his helmet is on, yet his whole face is bandaged up for some reason, except for the one part Splinter possible did hit: his eyes. Pff...logic...
