Episode Summary

EDIT
The Varox bounty hunters finally manage to take down Pyramidas, causing it to crashland on Aquitar. The Gold Ranger, rescued by two familiar Aliens, has his identity finally revealed to the Zeo Rangers. With his health declining, they have to aid his arrival on Earth to seek out a new host for his powers, while the Machine Empire tries to prevent his surviving the trip. Meanwhile, the still-amnesiac Goldar & Rito hire their masters, Bulk & Skull, to find their families.moreless

  • A great example of a great season

    9.0
    One thing that constantly separates Zeo from the earlier Mighty Morphin seasons is plot fluidity. The best comparable that comes to mind is the original Mobile Suit Gundam. Those who have seen it will understand the heavily structured plot flow with each episode. The minute by minute structure is near identical each episode with the obligatory mech battle and conclusion. Mighty Morphin suffered from that repetition a lot and it could make episodes a chore when the plot was cringe worthy.



    These two episodes are a great example of the Zeo season as a whole. The plot flow is now much more fluid, with some excellent editing to cut back and forth with killer action and little filler. The Bulk and Skull plot always seems to work well. While this arc does miss out on any significant moments of confrontation, such as for example, Jason and Goldar in the other dimension from Season 1, the action and flow is awesome throughout. That is in general why this episode is worth a 9, but cannot reach a 10.



    More specifically though, and what really solidifies that 9 is the actor who will portray the Gold Ranger to close out the season. He's a far better screen presence than the guy who replaced him in season two. Surely, had he stuck around as long as the 'Tommy' character, his place in Power Ranger history would be no less. He elevates the entire show.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Billy says he absorbed a large dose of negative proton molecules. This is scientifically impossible because protons have a positive charge, so they can't be negative. Protons are also a part of the nucleus of an atom, and it takes at least two atoms to make a molecule, therefore Billy couldn't have absorbed "proton molecules."

    • While Trey was being teleported from Aquitar to Earth, Billy said that King Mondo encased the Command Center in a Deflector Shield, instead of saying the Power Chamber.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (5)

    • Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd return to the recurring cast with the end of the episode, starting a chain of subplot events which will continue throughout the rest of the season.

    • This marks the first US-footage use of Queen Machina, making her the last of the Machine Empire to now no longer be limited to Sentai footage use.

    • Billy's negative-proton encounter with an exploding Command Center console in "Hogday Afternoon (2)" is recalled in a flashback, thus explaining why he never again gains a new Ranger power.

    • The Gold Ranger is revealed to be, not any character on the show previously, but Trey, a three-in-one alien from the planet Triforia.

    • The battle across the galaxy between Pyramidas and the Varox fleet is entirely American CGI, a first for the PR TV series.
