The first part of the Finale episode special starts with the Foot Shack, since the events after the disappearance of the city and the return of the Shredder, The Foot Recruit is telling Shredder that they can finally furfill their mission. The Lieutenant tells her that he's not gonna respond unless they move the ring. Foot Recruit angrily says that they remove the collar and bring him to life.
Meanwhile, the Turtles, April, Draxum and Splinter return to their lair after the fight with the Shadow Fiend. With the people still inside in the mystical orb. Mikey asks Draxum to let the people out, but Splinter refuses them to open it because Shredder is out there. Splinter wished he had listen to his Grandpa Sho's story about defeating the Shredder. And also the only thing that Splinter has to do to send his sons: His memories.
Draxum created a mystic ritural with the idea of his and tells them that they have to find the way to defeat Shredder. April asked him that it's safe which Draxum maybe agrees. Draxum bids them good luck and send the turtle's into Splinter's mind so they can gain across his memories to defeat the Shredder.
Yoshi was revealed that he didn't listen to his grandfather and never wanted to furfill his destiny. As an Adult he was very imporant about his career and never came back to his family. Sho tries to convince Yoshi, but he still ignores him. Sho leaves sadly. The turtles follow Splinter's sad grandfather but then the subconscious started fighting them. After sensing that Splinter's subconscious rejecting them, Draxum moves them into another memory where a teenage Yoshi had argued with his grandfather from the very start his mother had left and he started his life as a Hollywood star as Lou Jitsu. More dark version of Lou appear.
With the final memory moved, they learned that Yoshi's mother left her family when Yoshi is still a child to defend the world. His mother Atsuko promises him the sacrifice he'll make and the words "anata wa hitori ja nai" were heard before she fades. They also learned that the Shredder can be defeated by a powerful weapon to banish him into the Twilight Realm.
Draxum stops the ritrual and they all know what do to. He opened a portal to the Twilight Realm where they rip the weapon out. But then it turns out it turns to an unknown woman wearing a Hamato clan robe, she angrily asks them what they have done before she faints.
From below the Foot Shack, blue flames lit and Shredder finally comes back to life and speaks for the first time of his life while laughs maniacally as the first part ends.
