- I didn't take you here to guilt you. I want you to understand. The worst thing imaginable happened right in front of my eyes when I was just a child, and all the rules of the world were broken. It took me decades to pull myself together into something new... something strong. A man who could overcome what had happened to him, but also a man who could work tirelessly to make sure that would never happen to another family. It is selfish, in a way. I'll grant you that. But it's what I can do. And I need to do something. I need to do it for them.

Synopsis for "New Friends, Old Ghosts"
Back at Wayne Manor, Donatello communicates with Cyborg and the Justice League to slow the affects of the mutagen's nonexistence. During this time, Leo trains with Batman, and the group eats pizza together, inciting Raphael's wrath at their seemingly flippant attitude towards the Turtles' and Splinter's regression. He accuses Batman of being a thrill-seeker and vows not to work with him before splitting from the team.
During this event, Batman follows Raphael and brings him to Crime Alley where he explains his motivation for helping the Turtles, and the two reconcile. The pair are then contacted by Alfred, who informs them that the others have headed towards a location where Donatello found a transdimensional reading. At the location, the rest of the Turtles find Casey, who reveals that he had brought five canisters of pure mutagen with him, but they had been stolen.
The five canisters are brought to Arkham by Ra's al Ghul and Shredder.
