Plot Synopsis

The Turtles manage to locate some more of Master Splinter's data bits. April suddenly appears on Donatello's viewscreen, warning them that the equipment allowing them to be in cyber-space is overheating. Behind her we see plumes of smoke billowing in the room. She urges them to return, and opens a cyber-portal. They managed to get out just as the portal explodes. Don stays behind to repair the portal, while the others and Casey go out. During this, when Mikey tries to jump to another building, it suddenly moves to then make Raphael rescue him from falling by a fire hose. Suddenly, while scaring off a group of Purple Dragons, their foes disappear and Casey is killed.

April picks them up but drives right into a wall, which she can't see (and briefly talks with Casey's voice). After the truck crashes, they try to rescue April, she is caught in an explosion. Suddenly, Leo starts to note the inconsistencies in the recent events and realize that they are still in cyber-space. They then managed to manifest their Cybernaut armor. They come to the unfortunate dimension - the Shredder is tricking them into creating a cyber-portal.

Just then, the Shredder appears and they fight. But as they continued fighting, they realize that they need to warn Don and race off. However, the Shredder alters the layout of the false New York. Ignoring the effects and remembering that logic is not linear here, they break the illusion, just before Don is finished. They then go back to their dimension. But unknown to them, a cyber cockroach snagged a piece of cyber energy, enabling the Shredder to complete a portal.


  • Raphael: Oh yeah! We've got some serious cyber skills!
  • Leonardo: Donnie, did you finish work on the equipment?
  • Donatello: Uhh...
  • Leonardo: Donatello, we're still in cyberspace. Do you understand?
  • Donatello: What? What's going on? What are you saying?
  • Raphael: The Shredder was using you!
  • Leonardo: To get the blueprints for the Cybernaut portal. Did you finish it?
  • Donatello: Nearly. But no.
  • Michelangelo: You're alive!


  • When the fake Casey and April called Mikey and Don "Mickey and Donald", it could be a reference to the two famous Disney characters Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
  • There is another implication of the reality the Turtles was fake: if one listens close enough, Casey shout 'Gongala' instead of 'Goongala' when fighting the Purple Dragons
