My… my head hurts…
“The Krrang Conspiracy” is one of those episode that gives you a lot of new information and shines light on mysteries. However, you might not like what you see under the light. After watching the episode, I have more questions than before, and I might not like what I learned.
This episode reveals that April’s DNA is needed to perfect the Earth’s mutagen, and her mother has been experimented on by the Kraang for the longest time. Also, the Kraang have been planning on to transform Earth for thousands of years already. All these information is great and all, but things take a turn for the strange when it reveals that Kraang have been cloning April all this time. There are literally dozens of Aprils in the TCRI building, and not to mention the really disgusting April Derp. The failed clone of April is just… no.
Another disturbing scene is when the real April starts to kick all the clone Aprils’ asses. I don’t understand how she’s able to “kill herself,” and I don’t understand how the turtles are able to do so so easily either. Especially Donny. I have a feeling that the writers are missing some great opportunities for some Donny moments here.
Anyway, the ending also reveals that April is technically a mutant herself. That explains why April is immune to the mutagen, and why she has some sort of psychic power. It’s really cool that she has her power, but I don’t know if I like the fact that shes’s a mutant. Like I said above, there are a lot of information revealed in the episode, and they can be a little too much to take in all in once.
By the way, does this mean that April’s mom might make an appearance somehow? I wonder what she’s up to now.
Jack Kurtzman is an interesting character. His design is the classic detective from the old days, and he has some interesting insights on the Kraang. It makes me wonder why he’s so interested in the Kraang in the first place though. Also, knowing how this show works, it’s only a matter of time he’s going to return to the show as some kind of mutation. Maybe even a mutant from previous medias.
It’s always great when a show answers mysteries that’s been bothering fans, but the answers might not always be good. Despite from fun actions and humors, the episode can be quite disturbing with some bizarre new information. I’m sure this episode will shake things up for the remaining of season 2, but I’m just not a big fan of it.
