Back with the turtles, the woman wakes up to see them. Splinter tells her that this is the home of Hamato Yoshi. The woman introduces herself as Hamato Karai, an ancestor from 500 years ago. Leo wonders who and to reveal this Karai is the weapon.
She explains the entire story. Back then the Foot was once a peaceful clan ruled by Oroku Saki, Karai's father. But one day, evil attack the clan. In order to save the clan, Saki made a deal with a horrible oni who have gave him the Dark Armor. It turned him into the Shredder who led the Foot into evil and destroyed Japan. Karai led the Hamato clan to defeat him and sacrificed herself and away into the Twilight Zone.
April and Draxum then notice that the orb was leaking out because the people inside are getting crowded, and Karai promises that she will teach the Turtles an ancient art called the Hamato Ninpo.
While Karai rests, Leo, Donnie, Raph and Mikey spend some time with her, with them loving and caring for her even Mikey drew a picture of themselves and Karai, much to her satisfaction, she tells them that they might not were teached with Hamato Ninpo, but they are still family, much to their joy.
Todd arrives while April and Draxum try to seal the orb with tape.
Before Karai can teach them however, she suddenly realizes that Shedder found her, as the demon crashed into the lair.
The battle begins while turtles hold the Shredder off, as the Demon destroys Mikey's kusari fundo and Donnie's staff, Leo sends SHELLDON to watch Karai as he transforms into full robot body. Before Leo can enter the portal, he hugs Karai tearfully as he smiles at Karai, happy for having a grandmother who smiles back.
While fixing the orb, April and Draxum are shocked of seeing the foot here. Draxum asks Splinter what happened, which the latter yells out: "We are on the siege!". Realizing this, our goat yōkai asks the girl to evacuate the orb to safety as she escapes.
Leo enters portal and to his horror, the lair is engulfed in flames! Shredder destroys his odachi sword, but Raph nearly finishes off Shredder, but he destroys his tonfa.
Shredder enters the lab, where he is confronted by SHELLDON, he attacks the Shredder, but he uses his weapons to destroy the weapons, also killing SHELLDON.
Finally having enough, Karai is about to finish him off with the deathblow, but then to her shock, she sees her father's spirit inside of the armor as he speaks:"Daughter". While being distracted, Shredder destroys her as her corpse crashes to the ground. She speaks the same word as Splinter's mother tell it to him earlier in the childhood days:"anata wa hitori ja nai." Leo, who still very much loves his grandmother tries to go after her and save her, but Raph grabs his brother, tells him that Hamato Clan must live on as Raph grabs all his brothers and leave.
Turtles return to Splinter and Draxum and inform them about the death of Karai, much to Splinter's heartbreak. An explosion caused the lair the destruction, as Shredder confronts them!
With SHELLDON decapitated and Karai is killed, Turtles lair is destroyed, without a choice the Turtles have to evacuate with Todd while Splinter and Draxum fight the Shredder, and were defeated. Mikey screams out in despair as the second part ends.
- The episode title is a pun on the phrase, "Ready or Not".
- S.H.E.L.L.D.O.N. when fighting Shredder says "Booyakasha", a tribute to the 2012 series of TMNT and the voice actor who played Mikey.
- After S.H.E.L.L.D.O.N. becomes a full robot body, he is like Metalhead's.
- S.H.E.L.L.D.O.N. is killed once again, the first time he was killed in Smart Lair.
- This is the first time Karai appears in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TV series)
