Happy Valentines Day : Lotus Review

A big Happy Valentines Day to all of our readers.  If you have someone special in your life, go spend this day with them.  Treat them wonderful for the entire day and everyday after.  Because love should not only last for one day out of the year.  Relationships last 24/7 all year long.  That is why it’s so important not to rush into it, and make sure you’re with someone you truly wish to spend your life with.  Me, I’m not into that so this write up will be about Ninja Turtles relationship for those into this Holiday.

In Cowabunga Corner episode 69 I shared my thoughts on Raphael’s relationship with Ninjara.  This is my favorite of all the TMNT couples that has happened.  Another couple that I liked in the old days of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was Leonardo and Lotus Blossom.  While Lotus was a love interest right away for Leonardo, it was because they were impressed by each other’s skills.  That is the type of interest I can respect and understand.  It was never about her looks. 

Lotus Blossom was brought into the original cartoon series for two episodes.  She was hired by Krang to replace Shredder, and destroy the Turtles.  During that episode Shredder was working to make her fail, so that he was not replaced.  While Leonardo found that he loves a woman who can fight and hold her ground.  When she returns, it is a family problem of her’s that the story centers around.  The one thing with Lotus is she openly admits while she does like Leonardo, they can never be together because of their views in life.

She was an interesting character and I wish she was used more in the TMNT series.  A relationship interest, that showed not everyone who likes each other can truly be together.  If there was a Valentines episode in the original series, would Leonardo have thought of Lotus?  Maybe, even though she will  remain out of his reach.

What are you doing for Valentines Day?  What are your thoughts of the Leonardo/Lotus relationship?  Please share stories, reviews, comments and questions below.
