Episode Summary

EDIT
Rita finally has the ultimate plan to put an end to her former Green Ranger. Using magic wax tied to his morphing energy, she creates the Green Candle, which burns down with every battle he fights, taking with it his powers! To help ignite this scheme, the Zord-mimicking Cyclops monster is sent to Earth. As the Dragonzord, it rampages through the city, and proves to be quite an opponent against the Rangers! If that wasn't enough, Tommy is drawn into the Dark Dimension for a duel with Goldar! How long can the candle last at this rate?moreless

    Everything works in this episode. It's intense. The actors seem unusually talented. Maybe they know how good this episode is during filming, or maybe they have a really cool director. The shots are really a cut above. The puddy fight is brilliant. The zord fight is way cool. Tommy's fight against Goldar is not epic, but conveys the emotions well. The writing is sound as well. Lots of those big cool lines delivered with a level of elegance that makes this episode feel like a television classic. Prioritize it. The American production team rises to the occasion and delivers footage that matches on of Sentai's best moments from this season.moreless

    Tommy is losing power because of the Green Candle. As the Green Candle's wax is burning out Tommy is close of losing his power forever. The fight between the Dragonzord and the Megazord was cool. It was like deja vu all over again. Not until Tommy escaped from Goldar. It is a showdown Dragonzord vs Dragonzord but well would you look at that. The real one defeated the fake one in just one hit. How ironic. Anyway this episode shows that Kim and Tommy might become the first Power Rangers to be a couple.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • During the fight with the putties in the park Kimberly's morpher appears upside down throughout. The red button on the morpher is usually on the bottom half but in this case it's on the top half.

    • The image on Rita's magic map bears no resemblance to any place on Earth.

    • Since when does Rita need to use a magic map to locate any of the rangers?

    • When the Dragonzord impostor is busy destroying the city, why did the rangers waste so much time fighting putties?

    • Upon seeing Dragonzord (really Cyclops in disguise) destroying things, Tommy said it was time for the real Dragonzord power but Tommy hasn't been told yet about Cyclops.

    • When Finster was loading the Cyclops monster mould into the Monstermatic, Goldar could be seen somewhere in the background, but he was in the Dark Dimension battling Tommy.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Tommy: Rita wasn't bluffing. Once the candle burns out, I'm history. The Green Ranger's finished.

    • (Goldar has brought Tommy to the dark dimension)
      Tommy: Why am I here?
      Goldar: It's simple. If you serve Rita, you can keep your powers. If not, you'll lose them when the candle burns out.
      Tommy: What candle?
      Goldar: The Green Candle.

    • Tommy: I saw how you got me here, Goldar. Now let's see if it works in reverse!
      Goldar: No!!
      (Goldar grabs his sword, just as Tommy taps it on the ground, and they both return to the park)
      Tommy: See ya later, gold guy!

    • Squatt: (About Cyclops) Boy, he makes ME look good!

    • Bulk: What's the matter? Guys can't get a date?
      Zack: Well, if you're such experts, why don't you teach us?
      Bulk: (Pulls his collar over his head and zips up his jacket)#Roses are red, Violets are blue. No girl in the world's gonna go out with you!#(Skull laughs)
      Bulk: (Tugs) I'm stuck! Help! I can't breathe! (Skull tries to help, but they both fall over)
      Zack: Hey ladies, check this out!
      (To Bulk and Skull)
      Tommy: #Roses are red...#
      Zack: #Violets are blue...#
      Both: #We sure could learn some things from you.# Not!!

    • Finster(On Cyclops): He's the worst! In the best of ways..
