"Time anomaly 2 hours 59 minutes." The alarm went off back at the time ship where we left our rangers. Alpha tells them that there’s going to be a time jump probably the Alliance, however with their ship damaged they can’t really do anything. They immediate try to assess and fix what they can on board. Marv and Eddie stay at central control trying to piece together wires, while Jack runs a weapons analysis in case they are found. Chloe and Vesper head to the engine room only to see that parts of it has literally melted beyond repair with what they have in 1994. While there they have a girl moment, where Chloe opens up about being nervous. Vesper replies with it's okay we have each other, “the team is our family.” While talking Vesper comes up with an idea to turn her small gadget into a messaging device in hopes of getting into contact with Jen for help. Else where on the ship Marv and Eddie are reconnecting exposed wiring and talking maybe they can use their ranger energy to power the ship. (Interesting thought - the morphin grid?) Somehow the convo moves a bit into Eddie having a “crush” on Vesper. (Totally ship by the way.) Just then an in coming message appears and its Zordon! (I will always love seeing him.) The rangers gather around as Zordon asks for their help. Since the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are off planet Lord Zedd sent down a Samurai Shibarai to attack people in Angel Grove park. It’s a dual bladed fox/dog hybrid with horns dressed as a samurai. The rangers knowing what they must do head to the park, however Eddie and Vesper stay behind to get the messaging device to work.
Alpha teleports the others to the park to deal with the monster. Chloe and Marv immediately start helping civilians to safety. While Jack then tries to distract the Shibarai. Coming back first, Marv goes in for the attack. However, misses and slightly gets cut by the Shibarai’s swords. Jack starts doing cartwheels and kicks him in the chest giving Marv space to recover. Chloe returns just in time and morphs, using her hurricane whirlwind to attack the foe. The Shibarai moves out of the way and attacks her but Marv tackles and slams him down.
We cut back to Eddie and Vesper playing around with the gadget in hopes of getting a message to 3016. Also Eddie brings up Vesper saying that they were “boyfriend” and “girlfriend”, when they were back at the library talking to Scorpina. (Reference, episode 3) It got kinda awkward which was pretty funny.
Another cut away, but this time we are at Lord Zedd’s moon base. We see his iconic chair moving around revealing Lord Zedd! (Badass!) As he stands the snake next to him turns into his staff (Just like on T.V.) He looking down to Earth to see new rangers!? He sends Shibarai help in the form of “Z” putties!
Back at the fight, Jack morphs and head butts the Shibarai sending him flying back. Marv and Chloe quickly fight off the “Z" putties (Great dice rolling.) We also get to see Chloe’s bow as she uses it to shoots down some putties. Marv morphs and grabs the last putty hurling him into the Shibarai. With him distracted Jack and Chloe use their weapons and actually blind it!
Cut away scene again, this time we are at the Alliance’s ship with Scorpina and Vulcanus watching the battle. She says, “We should go down there and finish them off.” But from out of the shadows, the Alliance Leader steps out and replies, “Don’t forget our mission is more important than these cadets.”…(Doesn't feel like they are rangers I guess.)
Back at the park, Marv and Chloe go for their signature combo move once again, Marv jumping into her hurricane and he spins with his lion claws he cut through the Shibarai defeating him. Zedd sees this and shoots down a lightning bolt where the Shibarai was last standing and he grows! (Big trouble.) He’s blind and violently picking up and throwing trees into the air. Probably worse then if it did have sight.
Eddie and Vesper are stuck and need to help their friends. In a desperate attempt, Eddie takes out his “ranger buds” wretch and just hits it. (The good old fashion way.) It works! (lmao) Vesper quickly records and send a message to Jen in 3016 telling her that the time ship is broken and they need help. Alpha is the background going, “Oh I hope it goes through.” Just he finishes that thought a message pops up from a former student, Abigail (possible future 6th ranger maybe???), who said “We got your message weeks ago and have been working hard to get something to you. Pay load inbound. A circular portal opens in the sky at angel grove park, a time portal, and these giant machines come out - their zords! The first one through is Vesper’s cerberus, a three head attack dog. Next, Marv’s brave and mighty lion. Chloe’s phoenix flies graceful over head followed by Eddie’s serpent, with a drill tail. Lastly, Jack’s ram tank hybrid filled with weapons. (Awesome!!!) The rangers feel a surge of power flowing through them and a deep connection to their zords. Together the enter.
The Shibarai senses the zords but can’t really see them. He using his sense of smell and hearing to find the closest one to attack, the serpent. The grabs the serpent and shakes poor Eddie around. Marv uses his lion's "claw pounce" from behind while Jack’s ram aims his turrets and fires 4 missiles into Shibarai’s chest. Vesper then grabs hold of him using her cerberus’s heads until he released Eddie. Chloe’s phoenix grabs Eddie’s serpent and drops him on Shibarai so he use his tail drill attack. Lastly, to “show off” their zords is Chloe, who uses "phoenix feathers” spiraling dive. The wings open up and reveal blades cutting into him. It is Vesper that deals the final blow with her mace tail destroying him once and for all.
Just then over the park the Alliance leader’s ship unveils itself. It seems that dark energy is circling around the ship as they are preparing to time jump. Vesper shouts, “We need to fix our ship if we are going to be able to follow them.” They head back to their time ship and dock the zords on it. (Pretty cool, I wish we could see.) Their seats move backwards into the ship. (Reminds me of some early megazords, maybe from Turbo?) They try to patch things up that they got from their care package from Abigail and the others in 3016. The final shot of energy comes from their zords and just in time was time anomaly clock counts down and both their ship and the Alliance’s time jump at the same time!!!
In the time stream, a place in between time and space, they are right behind the Alliance’s ship. A blast comes from behind the Alliance’s ship. Seeing this the rangers try to activate the shields but not in time..(See what I did there.) and get hit by the blast. Alpha shouts, “We landed in a time, outside of time, a time thats not our own." (What!?) As he says this is seems that theres almost a virus of some sort spreading through the time ship shutting down and short circuiting Alpha badly. They rangers using power from the zords are able to stop it but they need to get help for Alpha. They have an emergency landing a crash into a warehouse. (Definitely a rough landing for sure.) Vesper and Eddie try to exit the ship to see where they are but before they make it to the door, theres a knock. (?) It’s someone named “M”. Eddie opens the door to reveal a female figure with a caravan of people behind her, 20-30 people traveling somewhere. They ask where everyone is going and she replies with Corinth! (Fangirling, Power Rangers RPM.) Eddie is able to put an alarm and cloak the ship as we learn more. The people’s homes were destroyed, and M says something to the effect of, “The tech in this world is falling apart.” Chloe pitches in, “We should get these people to Corinth." Walking in line with the people they follow them to a city in the distance outside the warehouse. As the scene fades we see a bit more outside the warehouse, its mostly desert...
This was definitely an exciting episode. The rangers finally got out of Angel Grove and landed in Corinth, so awesome. Theres so many things that can happen there. Really hope theres a cameo in the coming weeks maybe from a villain this time around like Tenaya 7. She was a badass. Also, our rangers have zords now!!! They look awesome can’t wait to see their megazord. The designs seem pretty solid. Right now, I feel my favorite is Vesper’s Cerberus because not only the three heads which is pretty unique but also the mace tail. The one I think could have been a bit more is Jack’s Ram, even though I know what route they were taking a ram/tank is pretty great don’t get me wrong but we’ll see. Malika was morphinominal. This show can’t happen without her. I thank her so much for all her hard work that goes into it. Can’t wait to we what she has in store for the rangers next episode. A lot can happen between their ship and Corinth. As for the rangers, they have great chemistry with each other and seem to have really put it together. Being that we are 5 episodes in now, I have to say they have truly come a long way, mentally and "time wise" lol They are truly power rangers.
