Episode Summary

Samurai Go West
Ban wears his Shinsengumi outfit to honour one of ancestors. Just then, an emergency call comes in from Kyoto. In Kyoto, an Alienizer, Zoiner Alien Beetonin, discovers that 'his' Kyoto has been invaded and attacks a group of school girls. The Rangers arrive to stop him but they are defeated by Beetonin's sword technique. Ban is recognized by Beetonin as his ancestor Akaza Banoshin. Jasmine learns that Beetonin crashed on Earth 140 years ago where he was found by Banoshin and was taught Bushido. His species is long lived, so returning 140 years later didn't seem all that long to him, but it was long enough for everything he knew on Earth to change. The Rangers decide to make Beetonin think he is back in the Edo era by having Ban dress up like his ancestor and use the Toei Movie Village's makeup and sets. Beetonin wakes up thinking he is back in his Kyoto. The disguised Rangers challenge Beetonin to a duel that if lost, he must return home. Umeko wins with help from the special effects people. However, Ban damages the set, revealing the truth to Beetonin. Soon, Super Giant Heavy Industrial Machine Big Drawer appears and begins taking the ancient buildings. Doggie brings Detective Base Crawler to Kyoto to fight the Heavy Industrial Machine while Ban convinces Beetonin that Kyoto is still in safe hands. The buildings are saved and the Heavy Industrial Machine destroyed, so Beetonin heads for home.moreless
