TMNT 30 Day Challenge, Day 20: Favorite Master Splinter Moment
My favorite Master Splinter moment is in the season 2 episode Vengeance is Mine, also known as the episode that Karai gets mutated (tear tear). This is my favorite moment for quite a few reasons. The first reason is this: he looks so freaking badass here. His expression mixed with the fire in the background creates such an eerie feeling, and you know he’s about to put a beating on the man who just mutated his biological daughter and only connection to Tang Shen. Two: it’s Master Splinter’s breaking point. Sensei is always the wise one. He encourages mercy, compassion, and here, he is done with all of that. You can see Splinter breathing heavily with clenched fists, ready to murder the Shredder for all he has done. It shows that despite the fact that he is wise and caring, he is still a human (just roll with me on this one) with very real emotions that he sometimes just simply cannot control.
I love the way this show brings real life into the mix.
I couldn’t tell you any other favorite Master Splinter moments, mainly because 2012 Splinter is the only Splinter I really like… (don’t hate me please). I like some of the lines that Splinter 2003 has, but I’m still not all that crazy about the character.
