This issue is told from the perspective of April's diary entries. Everyone goes to Casey's late Grandmother's place, where Leo recuperates, and April absorbs the loss of all of her belongings. Don keeps his mind occupied making repairs around Casey's Grandmother's place which is pretty run down, and he even starts writing something. Mike worries April the most, he doesn't goof around any longer and is being uncharacteristically training, in solitude, in the back of the barn. Everyone has a need to be alone.
Raph scares April, he's temperamental, so she keeps her distance, but she notices that he doesn't sleep much and she's heard him leave the house late at night, presumably to stand guard. Casey seems like a child to April, and he's "doin' projects!" with Raph all of the time.
After April falls through the ice while she was on a walk, and Leo pulls her out, she realizes that her new friends are worth far more to her than the lost possessions. Meanwhile, Splinter has his sons train as a collective and reminds them that life is good, and life goes on.
