I have to admit, I did not see the clone thing coming, though it made sense that the Kraang would want as many April clones as possible to further their research. It was a cool and creepy visual to see all the many April's lining the walls in stasis pods. Less cool, though, was the April clone reject -- or "April Derp" -- that used flatulence and hugs to combat the Turtles. That's not to say an April clone reject wasn't a cool idea for a boss fight, it just ended up being more goofy and slapstick than usual. Still, the subsequent fight with all of the awakened April clones, and April singling herself out with her war fan, was a solid way to end the mission. Bringing Kurtzman back at the end was also a nice touch. I'll be looking forward to seeing how he plays into future episodes -- plus, it never hurts to have another guy on the inside!

It was also here that we got to see April use her psychic powers again -- which, if there was any doubt before, are definitely powers -- giving her the ability to eavesdrop on the Kraang's telepathic conversation. Naturally, this was followed by the aforementioned skirmish, during which April was kidnapped and replaced with -- dun, dun, dun! -- a clone! ("Kay...")
In the end, it wasn't too surprising to find out that April was in fact a mutant herself, made up of half human, half Kraang DNA. However, it did signify a pretty major departure from the traditional Turtles canon -- but in a very good way. Not only does it make April a more relevant team member than ever before, but she also now has something unique to offer to the group in terms of her psychic -- and seemingly telekinetic -- powers.
