THIS IS THE WORST AND CRUELEST THING ANYBODY HAS EVER DONE TO ME.
5) Training Timothy.
Donnie-sensei would be a really great teacher if he got the chance and I am still waiting for a Donnie+April training montage.
4) TAKING OUT KARAI.
I actually really would love to see the show go into this in a bit more detail? Donnie’s one of the weakest when he’s fighting in the group, but piss him off enough while he’s alone and he seems to become Turbonerd. Leo has trouble with Karai, and Donnie beat her in less than five seconds the second she came after April.
3) Follow The Leader and his DIVA STRUT onto the highwires.
2) SNUGGLING THE SPY ROACH.
My headcanon is that they all have names like Ada and Tesla and Isambard and NO, he will NOT NAME ONE OF THEM EDISON.
1) I actually want to class all of The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman as a Donnie moment, because there were so many great ones:
- Donnie’s face when April was asleep
I am a shipper and I have needs and this sustains me.
also I thought it was really great that Donnie just let her sleep? and that April felt safe enough in a lab prone to explosions and six inches away from a bunsen burner to just nap. their friendship hurts me a whole lot leave me here to die.
- The ending scene between Splinter and Donnie in the dojo
I really, really loved — and thought it was a great moment of parenting — that Splinter told Donnie in front of his brothers that he did not want the retromutagen. I think it was so important that they all heard that, and that Donnie was told that in front of his brothers — that yes, he did an incredible thing, but his father loves him and loves his family, and status quo is god.
- The scene where the retromutagen actually worked.
Seriously, after watching Donnie wreck himself for almost an entire season, and watch fate conspire against him for almost two, watching something actually go right for Donnie, for once, was really great.
hi my name is tea and I get far too emotional about a giant purple-wearing nerd.
