Episode Summary

EDIT
Thanks to the Lizwizard monster's ability to switch places with anyone he's got his tongue wrapped around, Carlos accidentally injures Cassie. Though she's not hurt badly, this incident strikes a major blow to the Black Ranger's self-confidence. He soon bumps into his predecessor, Adam Park, who offers both guidance and extra training. But with Carlos fast deciding to quit the Rangers, will Adam take the ultimate risk with a burnt out Morpher to teach him the lesson that just as there's always a chance bad things can happen in battle, there's still always a chance they'll work out right?moreless

  • Carlos' Greatest Crisis, and Adam's Biggest Gamble! 8)

    10
    The great glory days of Power Rangers from Mighty Morphin' times returns to lend it's descendant a good old fashioned taste of good old school fighting know-how! Even though it's not a full team-up, I consider myself lucky there even Was One Mighty Morphin Power Ranger available to appear in this episode in the First place! It was great seeing Adam back in action! He's clearly not the type to just sit on his laurels and let the next generation fight evil on their own, he wants to get on the action to! In this case, the Astro Rangers could really use it as Carlos has lost his confidence when he hurts one of fellow rangers, and he is unwilling to fight as he's convinced he's going to make a mistake and wind up hurting another innocent person! But Adam shows Carlos a true Power Ranger can't afford to let even one mistake stop him or her from saving the day where and whenever that might be! When Carlos ends up getting attacked by the Lizwizard without his morpher, Adam takes a serious risk in using his damaged Mastodon coin Power Morpher as morphing with it could very destroy Adam! Adam's decision ultimately works when the Astro Rangers arrive to help destroy the Lizwizard once and for all! Adam's attempt at self-sacrifice is just the thing Carlos needed to go back to being a ranger! If Tommy is the best Power Ranger ever, Adam definitely has what it takes to be a close second! This episode would definitely stand as being the best team-up in PR history until "Forever Red" would air four years later after this episode first aired! When it comes to action & risk-taking, the "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" did it 1st & did it the best! That's why they're my favorite Power Ranger team of all time! :Dmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Before Lizwizard explodes you see a glimpse of the silver ranger in the flames.

    • Adam's Morpher appears to be completely undamaged during the Morphing Sequence.

    • INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: Adam has a Power Coin, but they were destroyed by Goldar in "Climb Every Fountain." This episode establishes something which wasn't made clear during "Ninja Quest". The Ninja Coins made by Ninjor were in fact new coins, as evident by their Ninja Symbols on them (the Ninja Coins were the ones crushed to dust). The damage seen on Adam's Mastodon Coin here came from the Command Center's power grid overload in "Ninja Quest (1)". Hence the season 2-era morphing sequence, instead of the season 3 one!

    • When he demorphed after Lizwizard had retreated, Carlos had a bandage on his pinky which hadn't been present before his morph.

    • Even though they were on Earth, the Astro Megaship seemed to be orbiting Aquitar/Ko-35.

    • INCORRECTLY REGARDED AS A GOOF: If Adam was going to morph why did he risk his life by morphing with the damaged Power Morpher, when he could of safely morphed with his still fully operational Zeonizer into Zeo Ranger IV? Perhaps his hanging out with Carlos made him miss his BLACK Ranger days, so he got his old Power Morpher out of storage. He had no intention to morph at all, as we saw. He was working out with a currently-powered Ranger. When Lizwizard attacked, Carlos didn't have a morpher. And Adam had to take the risk to save his friend.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (6)

    • Adam, and his Black MMPR Ranger powers, will return in PROO's "Once A Ranger" two-parter.

    • Adam's morphing sequence is a previously unused version of Adam's season 2 morphing sequence, where, instead of just standing there shouting "Mastodon!", he actually does the hand gestures with his Power Morpher.

    • Lizwizard's name was originally "Wizlizard" during filming. It was changed in post-production, though in some instances, you can see mouth-movements match the pronouncing of his original name.

    • Johnny Yong Bosch (along with Bulk, Skull, and the Professor) also filmed the "Power Playback: Funniest Power Rangers Moments" special while doing this episode.

    • Bulk (Paul Schrier), Skull (Jason Narvy), and Prof. Phenomenus (Jack Banning) return for this episode. They won't be back until "Dark Specter's Revenge (1), but Bulk & Skull will remain credited.

    • Adam is able to briefly morph using his damaged Power Morpher and Dino Coin (both last seen in "Ninja Quest (1)"), making this as close to a team-up between MIGHTY MORPHIN' POWER RANGERS and POWER RANGERS IN SPACE as the show will get until PRWF's "Forever Red".
