croatoan day taking over yet another post

Here’s the thing about the whole incident with Slash and the situation that resulted from it:
The most important thing to Raph is his family. He puts them first when it counts, to the point where he can’t take the pressure of leading the team, because it requires him to put them directly in danger.
Raph considered— and still does consider— Spike/Slash family. When Slash was mutated, at first it seemed like something awesome to Raph, because what could be better than his best friend turning into something just like him? Slowly, though, Slash’s mutagen-twisted mental state became evident, and Raph (and the other turtles) knew that it was exactly that— the mutagen warped Spike both mentally and physically. Is that Slash’s fault? No.To Raph, if anyone can take the blame, it’s himself.
And, as I said, to Raph, Spike is every bit as much a family member as his brothers. If something happened to Leo warp him into attacking his brothers (cough Foot!Leo cough cough), Raph wouldn’t suddenly consider him no longer family. Emotional ties don’t work that way.
It’s like with April and her father, as well. When Kirby was mutated and he attacked both April and the turtles multiple times, she didn’t just stop caring about him. Because that’s her dad, and it wasn’t his fault.
So that’s why Raph invited Slash to be on the team, to come back and join them. Slash fought alongside them against the Kraang, and he’s not to blame for his changing into what he is now. In Raph’s mind, if anything, it’s his own fault, for leaving the mutagen out, for complaining about his brothers to Spike all those years.
Raph was trying to bring back part of his family, his friend, so they could work it out, because he knows Slash was mentally unstable and acting on what he’d always been told. Because he’s aware of that (as Raph says, “Still hangin’ on to the past, huh, Slash?”), and because Spike was his pal his entire life, he can let it go.
Raph was literally entirely prepared to kill Slash with a knife if Slash didn’t stop going after them, if it meant protecting his brothers. He’d tried everything else, so there was no other way. That doesn’t mean he thought Slash the enemy, he was just ready to do what he had to do. When he did shove Slash off the roof, he reflexively tried to catch him, and it absolutely broke his heart.
So, basically what I’m saying is that it’s not one extreme or the other. Raph knows Slash is dangerous and messed up, and Raph will fight him if he has to, but he still has a soft spot for his old pet turtle. He still sees his old friend in Slash, and that is something that will never change.
