The It Came From The Depths
The episode opens in a Kraang compound, where a squad of Kraang are chasing after a large creature that has cables trailing from its limbs. It seems to be crocodilian in nature and extremely strong. It puts up a vicious fight and, even though one of its arms gets wounded by a Kraang's laser gun, it is able to escape into the sewers.
The It Came from the Depths
We then join the Turtles relaxing in the the Sewer Lair. Mikey unveils his latest culinary creation, the P-Shake, a Pizza milkshake. Its taste does not go over well. After the boys finish watching Space Heroes, they see a news story reporting a sewer worker being attacked by a reptilian mutant monster. Leo and Donnie automatically (and playfully) turn to look at Raph, but he denies having any involvement in the situation. The film footage shows the same mutant alligator from the Kraang compound, unbeknownst to them. Out of fear of being discovered, the Turtles decide that they can't have a dangerous mutant giving incentive for news crews to come down into the sewers. Donnie notices a tunnel number when he rewinds the news bulletin, so the Turtles head out to look for answers there. They discover a long trail of large footprints and follow them. They then stumble upon the mutant gator battling against another squad of Kraang. At first, the beast savagely defeats the Kraang, but the Kraang shock him with electric stun batons. They start to interrogate him about some kind of "Power Cell". The gator refuses to answer their questions and the Kraang zap him repeatedly. Mikey remarks that they have to help this gator. The others are hesitant, as they know nothing about the animal, but Mikey goes to the rescue anyway and his brothers follow him and fight the Kraang for the heck of it. Two Kraang try to drag the unconscious gator away, but Mikey stops them. Leo says that they must get away before more Kraang show up, but Mikey flatly refuses to leave the gator behind. Eventually, he convinces the others to help him take the gator with them and they all start dragging the heavy behemoth back to their lair. Mikey believes that, because they saved the beast, he will be grateful. However, once the gator comes to, he unprovokedly attacks the Turtles, grabbing Donnie's head and swinging him around like a club. Raph is able to distract the gator by covering its eyes, allowing Leo to subdue it with Donnie's stun gun. Master Splinter comes in and is surprised to see the gator. The boys explain the situation and Splinter commends Mikey on his kindness. He believes the creature to have a genuine heart and instructs Mikey to befriend him so that they can learn what he knows about the Kraang. He also orders Leo, Raph, and Donnie to find the so called 'Power Cell'. Donnie asks Splinter if they should restrain the crocodilian with chains and Splinter tells him that he should, commenting that he is compassionate; not insane.
Meanwhile, Leo, Raph, and Donnie go back to the tunnel where they found Leatherhead and explore a sewer pool, thinking about where an alligator would stash something. They come across a tunnel that is riddled with homemade booby traps, including flying road signs, floor spikes, and rolling spiked barrels. They are able to avoid the booby traps, in the process reaching the end of the tunnel and finding what looks to be a 'Power cell'; a glowing crystal within a glass cylinder. Donnie discovers (with a shocking pain) that the crystal puts out a startling amount of energy and, with the right components, it could power anything from a flashlight to a city on the Moon.
They bring the Power cell back to the Lair, only to find that Mikey has set Leatherhead free. They can't believe that Mikey would do such a thing, as Leatherhead is extremely dangerous and unstable. Mikey explains that Leatherhead is completely mellow. Leo attempts to ask him about the Kraang, but the gator loses his sanity whenever this word is spoken by some one. Mikey is able to calm him and lets the others ask their questions. Donnie holds out the Power cell and tries to confirm what it is. Leatherhead loses control again when he sees the cell, calling Donnie a thief and seizing his head again. The Turtles attack Leatherhead, with Mikey trying to calm him down again. Leatherhead defeats them all, including Mikey, and seizes the power cell. Splinter enters the room, demanding Leatherhead to step away from his sons. Leatherhead attacks him, but, through skill and speed, Splinter is able to use Leatherhead's own size and strength against him. Splinter demands that Leatherhead leave, and he does, taking the cell with him. Splinter rushes to the Turtles' side and they discover that Mikey has already left to chase after Leatherhead.
Leatherhead retreats to his own lair: an abandoned, graffiti-covered subway car. He plays an old vinyl jazz record that seems to calm his rage. Mikey enters the subway car, demanding an explanation for Leatherhead's actions. Leatherhead reminds him that there is a dangerous force within himself that he cannot contain, therefore he must be alone. Mikey's brothers arrive and command Leatherhead to leave Mikey alone...or else. Leatherhead pleads that he means Mikey no harm and tells the story of his past. He was raised as a baby by a kind human child, until the child's parents discovered Leatherhead and flushed him down the toilet, after which he ended up in the sewers. The Kraang found him, took him back to their homeworld, and performed horrifying experiments on him. Leatherhead endured all of this, and his spirit remained unbroken. He escaped captivity six months ago and used the Kraang's dimensional portal to return to Earth, and stole the Power cell that runs it. Without the cell, no Kraang can enter or leave Earth. He took it for the sake of sparing the Earth from the Kraang's future malice, at the cost of his own life.
The episode opens with an eerie scene, in which a squad of Kraang are chasing quite a large creature trailing numerous cables from it's limbs. It puts up quite a vicious fight and, although it is badly wounded, it manages to escape into the sewers.
Mikey wants to help the Mutant out, but his brothers are irresolute, as they know not one thing about him. Mikey goes to the rescue anyway, and his brothers reluctantly follow him. Two Kraang then try to drag the unconscious Mutant away, but Mikey quickly stops them. With all of The Kraang now either defeated or gone, Leo says that they must get away too before even more Kraang show up. Mikey refuses to leave the crocodilian Mutant behind, however, and, after dozens of moments of desperately trying to tug on the beast from every single angle, he eventually gets his wish/convinces his brothers to help him take the it all the way back to the lair.
Later, the alligator mutant wakes up, only to find himself chained to a wall in a vastly unfamiliar place. Michelangelo then appears and introduces himself, explaining that they had brought him here to recover. However, in spite of the circumstances, the Mutant demands to be set free and is at first very hostile towards Mikey. Mikey then offers him some of his homemade "pizza noodle soup". After a spoonful, the Mutant calms down a lot, saying that it is the best thing that he has ever tasted. Mikey is delighted to find someone who actually enjoys some of his cooking and he begins feeding the Mutant spoonful after spoonful. Mikey then asks the Mutant what his name is, and, after learning that he does not have one, dubs him "Leatherhead". Mikey then asks Leatherhead why he chose to attack Donnie before, and Leatherhead explains that, at times, he utterly loses control of himself and is not able to differentiate right from wrong, though he is always horrified and apologetic for what he has done afterward. Mikey reasons that Leatherhead must view himself as a monster, because that is how he has always been treated.
Splinter then arrives on the scene and demands that he step away from his sons. Leatherhead attacks him but, through immense speed and skill, Splinter, though narrowly, is able to use Leatherhead's own size and strength against him Splinter demands that Leatherhead leave immediately, and he does, taking the cell with him. Splinter then rushes to aid the frightened boys and they discover that Mikey has already left to find where Leatherhead could have possibly gone.
He was raised as a baby by a kind human boy, until his parents discovered him and rudely flushed him down the toilet, ending up in the sewers. The Kraang then found him after a short while, took him back to their home dimension, and performed a bunch of horrific experiments on him. Leatherhead endured all of this, however, and his spirit remained completely unbroken. He escaped captivity only six months ago, used The Kraang's dimensional portal to return to Earth and he managed to steal the power cell that was running it. He took it in order to spare the innocent people of Earth from The Kraang's malice, as the robots can now no longer come and go freely between worlds and wreak utter havoc in the process.

In short, you and your friends assemble multi-vehicle fleets and (hopefully) ravage the high seas, which are better than the low seas because you get a much nicer view from up there. Other players roam the sleepy blue giant, as do monsters and other such nastiness. You have to both maintain your own vehicles and board/dispatch/make bombing runs on those of others, which sounds like it could be great fun.
Wieser and her colleagues saw that there were two distinct populations of melt inclusions: those that came from the deeper reservoir, deemed high-Fo melt inclusions based in part on the forsterite content of the olivine crystals, and those that came from the shallower reservoir, or low-Fo melt inclusions. 350c69d7ab
