Her romantic feelings for Leonardo seemed to have cooled into a supportive friendship by the time of Farewell, Lotus Blossom. Her path crossed with the Turtles again when Shredder tricked her into believing that an ancestral ghost was telling her to get vengeance on the Turtles. Once she learned that this was not the case, she assisted the Turtles in trying to reclaim a stolen pearl before the ghost of Chakahachi could turn New York into a replica of Japan.
However, a more personal issue was resolved when Chakahachi recognized her as his long-lost wife, whose soul was dwelling inside Lotus' body. Without the displaced spirit, she was able to finally live a contented life in the modern world.
- Karai, a similar female ninja who has inherited Shredder's position, may have inherited the doubts about the Foot clan's true intentions and romantic feelings toward Leonardo from Lotus.
- Tang Shen, who is Splinter's wife and Karai's mother, looks similar to Lotus Blossom.
