Shredder ain't the kind of guy to SHOW weakness, even if he's in massive pain. He's probably been secretly holding it for years and he just now can't take it anymore-PLUS-age. Either that, or the pain-meds stopped having any effect on him. Seriously I just expect him to just DOWN pain meds.
Tell that to last time when Tiger Claw cradled him like a baby. lol I know he probably was embarrased by that but I couldn't resist mentioning it.
Pain meds? Ah that would have been delight to see if Shredder was actually addicted. Could probably send a message for kids to not do drugs or kidnap their archnemesis daughter while simultaneously trying to kill them.
But seriously, if that was the case and Shredder was in fact downing pain meds, I highly doubt the writers would leave out thse juicy details. The others didn't need to know about it. Just leave it for the viewers.
Massive, sweat rash. Its summer, you wear a metal helmet on, your face is gonna feel uncomfortable! They were probably soaked in Aloe Vera.
Lol Sweat rash?! Really? Dude I really think you are just making theories as we go now.
Seriously, just join them and make the stinking Justice Force all ready! "I need to find my own path"...YOUR FIFTEEN-and have NO minions, think realistically girl! Cool snake powers or not, your still ONE person against an army!
On the topic of armies, it seems like the new intro is strongly implying Shredder is going to mass-produce Chrome Dome and the Hamato Clan are now the bad guys. It also hints that Mona Lisa, Sal Commander and Lord Dregg are going to be back as well. Think they'll have anything to do with fighting Shredder's theoretical army?
