Episode Summary

EDIT
Justin begins to notice something strange going on with his teammates: Ashley's got wires in her wrist and Carlos' face can come off. This leads him to suspect that they've been replaced by robots! But if so, why can they Morph, and why are they helping to fight Divatox's Flash Head and Voltmeister monsters? What's the truth behind this odd occurance? And how long before Justin ends up the only one left? Meanwhile, Bulk & Skull take jobs as tennis instructors.moreless

  • The episode's focus is on Justin and his assumption that Ashley is a robot. He tries to confide his suspicions to the other rangers, only to discover they are robots themselves. In his confusion, he must team up with his comrades to ward off two monsters.moreless

    Another classic episode from Power Rangers Turbo that aired more than a decade ago. The beginning where the milk shakes are flung into the air, I could have sworn it would have landed on Bulk and Skull or on their boss, making him mad at the two clumsy people. Speaking of which, aren't Bulk and Skull supposed to be in college by now. What about Ashley, Cassie, Carlos and T.J? Aren't they old enough to go to college? But back to the beginning scene, it was great to see the milk shake land right on Ashley. Of course, being the Power Ranger, her mess injuries were minor compared to the usual massive messes Bulk and Skull have been exposed to countless times. From the time it is noted that Ashley is a robot, those watching this episode for the first time would think that Divatox had something to do with it. But, it soon becomes apparent that it wasn't one of Divatox's schemes, as she was seen plotting an entirely different scheme than robotic rangers. And given the persona of Divatox, it is highly unlikely for her to orchestrate a kidnapping of four rangers and turn them into robots. Our Divatox is only concerned with looting and explosions, which is equally dangerous as a kidnapping but not as effective. Even though Justin is one most familiar with Divatox and her brand of mayhem, knowing that she's more a looter than a strategist, he should have at least wondered if she had something to do with the rangers turning into robots. The question burning in my mind as the episode rolled on was why Justin wasn't told that his team were robots? To me, no explanation was enough to satisfy me as to Justin being kept out of the loop. But the explanation didn't only satisfy my curiosity, it surprised me. Justin is a robot himself. I liked Justin confiding into the other rangers as opposed to going straight to Alpha 6 and Dimintria. Overall, the episode was nice. Two different monsters attacking the same day was great. My favorite monster was the Flash Head guy. He had personality.moreless
