When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns with it’s first new episodes of the year this Friday, Jan. 25 (7pm ET), we’ll see a villain known to anyone familiar with the TMNT lore: the Rat King. In the “I, Monster” episode, a very skeletal looking Rat King threatens to take control of the city and Splinter’s mind, which ends up pitting the turtles against their sensai.

Check out the clip below.

New episodes will continue Saturdays at 11am beginning Feb. 2.
