Gwendoline Yeo (Richelle on American Crime, Paine from FFX-2, Domino from the Deadpool videogame, etc.) was at Nick Studios recording for TMNT with Kelly Hu and Kevin Michael Richardson! No news on who she’ll be playing yet (though we can assume she has scenes with Karai and Shredder–another kunoichi perhaps?), but it’s great to see another girl will be kicking butt on the show.

Looks like we’re getting a new cartoon earlier than I thought. Nickelodeon is gonna launch “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (working title) in autumn 2018. 2D animation, mystical elements, probably will blend the humor of the 2003 series and the 2012 series.
So this means all new fanfiction and all new headcanon. We get to start over.
So, I started in the fandom when I was nine years old in 1988. I’ll most likely stay in the fandom when I’m postmenopausal. I’ll read forum posts by teenagers and adolescents who will still complain about other fans complaining, and I will totally resist the urge to giggle and say shit like “When I was your age we only had mailing lists and there was no social media! But we still yelled at each other over shipping.”
Like, will they even know what Mirage is? Will they remember the great Capritello fan fights? The Shiniangelo Saga according to Greg Cipes and Gwendoline Yeo? The Battle Nexus championship? The battles over why Leonardo always kills the Shredder? The debate over the cartoons being “for kids” even as the original comics were for adults? Which version of Michelangelo was the least stupid? Whether or not Donatello had a personalized stress relief outlet nobody ever saw? Whether or not there will always be a Klunk?

hi, can u please list/name some southeast asian- especially Filipina- actors
H! Coincidentally I’ve been thinking of finally making a tag page for the blog based on actors’ ethnicities. The list is not full, obviously - just those actors I know and have on this blog, also here are only actors that work in Western TV/Film industry:
Actors of Filipinx descent:
Rudy Robles(1906–1970) - one of the first Filipino actors to appear in Hollywood movies. Robles was born in Tacloban. He began his schooling in the Philippines and then emigrated to the United States. He completed high school and college in California, where he excelled in debating and acting. Producer Samuel Goldwyn reportedly discovered and gave him the screen name Rudy Robles, whilst he was working as a bellhop at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood. His credits include pre- and post-World War II films, as Lt. Yabo in The Real Glory, starring Gary Cooper and David Niven. Among his uncredited roles are The Adventures of Martin Eden (1942), Wake Island (1942), Manila Calling (1942), Nocturne (1946), and Singapore (1947), starring Ava Gardner and Fred McMurray. Robles also played a Filipino assassin in the 1942 film Across the Pacific. After the war, he returned to the Philippines, where he raised a family and started to produce, direct and star in his own films. One of his last on-screen appearances was in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents in 1956. (x)
Lea Salonga - singer and actress best known for her roles in musical theatre, for supplying the singing voices of two Disney Princesses. Last seen on TV - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as Aunt Myrna (cameo).
Interviews with Sean Astin (Raphael:our tough cinnamon roll), Gwendoline Yeo (Shinigami:Karai’s new girlfriend), Kevin Eastman (honestly you better know who he is) and Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer: concept art god of tmnt)
Interviews with Rob Paulson (Donatello: our nerdy little love sick goofball), Greg Cipes (Mikey:idk where to start with this pizza loving child) and Eric Bauza (Tigerclaw:shredder’s bitch)
Owari was awesome, it got me emotional at the beginning and at the end, the Shredder fight was awesome but it should have been longer.
Seth Green’s voice acting is brilliant, you could hear the emotion in his voice.
I loved that everyone was there for Splinter’s burial. The scene was so moving without the dialog.
I won’t mention Pidgeon Pete’s appearance (We don’t talk about Pidgeon Pete)
Leo talking to spirit Splinter was amazing and sad. Leo saying “I can’t go on without you Father” hit me straight in the feels.
I liked that the Turtles visted Karai in hospital, they must have did a lot of stealth to get past the doctors or did they climb through a window. I like that Mikey is trying to reason with Karai to tell them where Shredder’s new hideout is. He is right though if he killed the Turtles then he would go for April and Casey and there families, The Mutanimals, Karai, Shinigami. Shredder would kill anyone connected to the Turtles. So they have to take down as soon as possible.
Leo holding Karai’s hand was so cute.
I wonder how long Karai was unconscious for because she knew about Splinters death when the Turtles visited her in the hospital. It must have been a few days since Splinters death because it would taken a few days for The turtles to prepare Splinters burial, make that tombstone and get everyone up to the farmhouse.
I like the Turtles wearing the new outfits but seeing Mikey wearing the black bandana didn’t feel right. The orange bandana is perfect for him.
I like Casey’s new metal mask, it’s a reference to Casey’s new metal mask from the 2007 movie.
I notice that Dr Cluckingsworth was in Casey’s car so they must have brought her back from the farmhouse for a little while.
Raph spitting is a dirty habit.
I know Fishface isn’t dead because remember that Instagram video Gwendolin Yeo posted From The Forgotten Swordsman over a year ago, you can hear Christian Lanz in the background saying to Raph about having a rematch.
When I first watched the episode in Korean Baxter returning to human was so unexpected. After watching it in English I was surprised again because Baxter wanted to stay as a mutated fly. I wonder if it’s this his last appearance or he’s becoming a cyborg next season.
Donnie calling Mikey ‘Michael’ was great.
The fight with Bebop and Rocksteady was great and I liked that Donnie turned there wepons against them but I am a bit concerned that Bebop and Rocksteady would want revenge on Donnie ('cough’ issue 44 'cough’)
Donnie and Mikey punching fists was great.
I like Tiger Claws new metal hand, it’s pretty cool that he can change weapons with it.
I’m glad Casey and April weren’t involved in the Shredder fight because to me it’s the Turtles fight and they both had there moments in Requiem.
The fight was awesome the Turtles movements were very quick, but it was hard to tell who was who at first because they were all wearing black bandanas but after watching it a few more times I got used to it.
I loved the teamwork in this fight, it was amazing. I was surprised that Donnie was the first to go but he got too distracted when he was thinking why the retro mutagen didn’t work on Shredder
Mikey’s movement with his nunchucks was pretty badass but it was a shame he got kicked out of the fight though, I would to see him in the fight a bit longer.
I wonder if that Orange glow might have been Mikey’s Spirit or it could be Splinters spirit protecting him. It wasn’t the fire because you don’t see any fire in that scene. I hope we see more of Mikey’s spiritual side next season and i’ve writtien a theory.
Leo is left and the dialog between Leo and Shredder is amazing, the one on one fight was amazing. I assume Shredder dislocated Leo’s shoulder.
I love that Splinter’s spirit was there, giving Leo one last advice so he could finally take down Shredder.
Obviously they couldn’t show a body without a head in a kids show.
The last scene was amazing and seeing Splinters spirit watching over them got me emotional but it was happy not sad, which was good because we had 2 sad ending before so this one needed to be happy.
I can’t wait for season 5 now Leo’s head of the family he’s going to be under so much pressure to keep his brother’s and friends safe. He can’t turn to Splinter for advice, he has to use his heart not his head because his brothers will be turning to him for advice and guidence. Leo and Raph can’t fight anymore and Raph has to respect Leo more and including working together to keep there younger brothers safe but I expect there will be a few small arguements. Leo will have to listen to Mikey’s ideas even if they sound strange.
Hopefully Splinter will be in season 5 but obviously we will see him as a spirit but also maybe in dreams, memories and flashbacks aswell.
I also wonder, will April have a psycic connection to Leo now or Mikey or both of them.
You now how Gwendoline Yeo put the terrifying episode title of the finale up on Twitter?
I started thinking… what if “Owari,” (which means “the end” in Japanese) refers not to the end of our beloved Rat Daddy, but to the end of Shredder (and all his drama)?
The next episode, the premier of season 5, is called, “Scroll of the Demodragon.”
We’ve seen in a preview clip that Tigerclaw summons the demodragon Kavaxas for… some reason. I dunno. And he used magic words on a scroll to call him. It was downright creepy.
I’m actually not sure if this clip is from one of the final episodes of season 4 (with “Scroll of the Demodragon” being a continuation of Kavaxas’ story), or if this is from the premier of season 5. Anyone know for sure?
Anyway, if it is from “Scroll of the Demodragon,” what if Shredder met his end in “Owari,” and Tigerclaw is summoning Kavaxas to raise Shredder from the dead? And of course Shredder would go to heck so Tigerclaw would basically have to call up Satan to get him back.
As a side note, I think it’s kinda funny this looks like a volcano crater and we’ve been posting “Throw Shredder in a volcano,” for some time now. lol

Requiem means a mass for a death. Or in another way or saying it, a funeral. So someone could be dieing this episode.
Owari means ‘The End’ or ‘Finished’ in Japanese. If someone close to the turtles has been killed by Super Shredder in the previous episode, so I wonder if they be fighting Super Shredder in the final episode but it be a lot longer than the other times they fought him in previous episodes.
So The Big Question is, Who is going to die???
So guys prepare for feels, feels and more feels and stock up on tissues, the last few episodes are probably going to be emotional.
