But what I can say is that I think it was a significantly more affectionate kiss, in a way that hadn't been seen before now. Does April love Donnie? Of course she does—we just don't know if it's as a love interest or as a good friend. The writers managed to reveal a little bit more to us while still leaving plenty of mystery. :)
Yeah, it is pretty common for fans to jump to conclusions.
The new versions of Bebop and Rocksteady are a good example. Lots of us fans prefer them to be idiots, though Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko, the new Bebop and Rocksteady, are pretty much smart and competent (though Zeck is somewhat bumbling and eccentric).
I actually think the new Rocksteady and Bebop are neat and believe that the Shredder might make them idiots to keep them from turning against him since he is confirmed to be the one responsible for their mutations.
