The Rangers fight Tommy one last time to free him from Rita’s spell.
Rita and company celebrate another victory by drinking what looks like wine but is actually cranberry and oyster juice.
At the Youth Center, Bulk, Skull, and Ernie watch a news report about Goldar attacking the city again. They all seem pretty blasé considering the circumstances. At this point, giant monster attacks have become an everyday affair.
Kimberly arrives and finds Tommy on a weight machine; she tells him that she and the other Rangers are going to help him, but he snaps at her and leaves.
Rita zaps the ocean and a new zord, the Dragonzord, rises up. It belongs to the Green Ranger, and she wants Tommy to use it to crush the Power Rangers – he’s able to control it by playing a trumpet-sounding dagger-flute.
The Rangers try to fight the Dragonzord without their zords (they fell in a chasm in the last episode), but as one would expect, they fail.
Alpha 5 does some technobabble thing to finally bring back Zordon, who tells the Rangers that they need to destroy Tommy’s Sword of Darkness to undo Rita’s spell on him. That doesn’t really make sense because Tommy was under the spell before he got the sword, but whatevs.
Now that Zordon’s back, the Rangers are able call their zords again. Jason’s Tyrannosaurus zord fights the Dragonzord and wins, then all the Rangers form the Megazord and beat up the Dragonzord some more. Talk about overkill!
End of Evil Green
Jason and Tommy step out of their zords for a sword fight. It looks like Tommy has the upperhand at first, but Jason knocks the Sword of Darkness from his hands and disintegrates it with his Blade Blaster.
Tommy demorphs and Rita’s spell is broken; Jason recruits him to the team with a handshake.
Tommy plays a different tune on his flute dagger to revive the Dragonzord, which then demonstrates its ability to combine with the Sabretooth Tiger, Mastodon, and Triceratops zords – a blatant toy commercial.
The episode ends in the Command Center with Zordon telling all the Rangers how great there are.
Well, there you have it. The finale of Power Rangers‘ five-part Green with Evil Saga. Thank goodness it’s finally over! It had a promising start, but seemed to go on and on with little happening – the Rangers being unable to figure out the Green Rangers identity for the longest time being the most notable offense.
We’re introduced to the Dragonzord in this episode. What took it so long? And it gets easily defeated by the Megazord. How anticlimactic.
The Dragonzord should have been introduced far earlier. It would have been more effective than Tommy simply getting embiggened by Rita’s staff. This is more of a problem with the source material, Zyuranger, than Power Rangers, though.
This episode neatly and predictably wraps up the Green with Evil storyline. Now that it’s over, let’s see how Tommy’s addition to the Rangers changes the team’s dynamic.
