A Golden Homecoming is the thirty-fourth episode of Power Rangers: Zeo. It is the conclusion of the seven-episode Gold Ranger arc. This marks the debut of the Super Zeo Zords and the return of Jason Lee Scott to take the Gold Ranger Power.

Synopsis

The Gold Ranger requires a new host for his powers, and the Zeo Rangers are thrilled to learn that an old friend has been chosen to bear this honor. But will even he be enough to stop King Mondo's new line of invincible monsters?

Plot

Inside the Power Chamber, the three identities of the Gold Zeo Ranger, Trey of Triforia, tell the Zeo Rangers that their power is rapidly diminishing. While the Zeo Crystal is keeping the Gold Powers from fading, the Treys must give them to a new host before they vanish forever.

Currently, Tommy is escorting the person he believes is the ideal candidate to become the new Gold Ranger to the Power Chamber. Wearing a hood and black sunglasses to keep his identity secret, this mysterious individual is targeted by King Mondo's Cogs. Since the Zeo Crystal's power is being used elsewhere, Tommy cannot morph and so he and his friend are forced to run until they come in range for a teleport. As the most of the energy from Power Chamber is also being used to keep the staff energized. Though it seems close, they are warped out safely at the last second.

Inside the office of Det. Stone, Goldar and Rito Revolto are sound asleep when they begin having dreams of fighting the Power Rangers. Suddenly, Rita Repulsa's voice cuts in during their dreams. She admonishes the pair for going soft during her and Lord Zedd's departure. Rita reminds Goldar and Rito that they're supposed to be bad guys. Zedd agrees and think the two have become maids to a couple of meatheads, causing him and Rita to laugh hard. Rita tells Goldar and Rito off to stop wasting time on Earth. Zedd points out they got big plans involving the sabotaging the Machine Empire and they need Goldar and Rito's help to make it happen. Both monsters swear to never be nice to anybody ever again. When the monsters wake up, Goldar and Rito find that their swords and memories (and wings in Goldar's case) have returned.

Now safely inside the Power Chamber, everybody is excited to learn that Tommy's friend is none other than Jason Lee Scott, the original Red Power Ranger and his old teammate. After introducing himself to Kat and Tanya, having never met them in the time when he was a Ranger, Jason meets with the Treys to begin the power transfer. Back at the office, Bulk and Skull are given orders to wash and wax Det. Stone's car. As soon as Stone leaves, they call for Goldar and Rito to do the work for them, but the monsters quickly tell off their former masters and steal their Patrol Bike to escape.

Meanwhile, the Machine Empire has rebuilt several of their old robots with special Neo-Plutonium armor to make them invincible and Prince Sprocket has asked that his favorite of the bunch, Silo, be sent down first. The Zeo Rangers are forced to leave Jason and the Treys to finish the transfer alone as they morph and combat Silo. Once fully armed with the powers of the Gold Ranger, Jason joins the fight with Tommy (which Tommy mentions as being "just like old times"). However, Silo seems unaffected by the Rangers' attacks.

Tommy gets Jason to distract Silo so the Zeo Rangers can form the Zeo Cannon but Silo remains impervious. When Klank & Orbus appear and make Silo grow, the Rangers attempt to summon the Zeo Zords but Billy teleports them back instead. He explains that against Silo's enhanced powers and Neo-Plutonium armor, the Zeo Zords will be destroyed.

Elsewhere, Bulk and Skull chase Goldar and Rito in Stone's car to get their motorcycle back but their vehicle runs out of gas and the monsters get away. Suddenly, Silo appears above them as he marches through the city. Bulk and Skull are forced to run for their lives as the car is crushed underfoot.

In order to defeat Silo, the Treys offer a gift to the Zeo Rangers: the Super Zeo Gems. With their power, the Rangers summon the Super Zeo Zords which prove more than a match for Silo. Mondo sends the rest of his enhanced robots to fight the Rangers in an attempt to even the odds but each are destroyed one-by-one as a Super Zeo Zord overpowers them. Elsewhere, Goldar and Rito are teleported off of Earth by Rita Repulsa while Det. Stone is not happy at all to see his car turned into a metal pancake and tells Bulk and Skull to leave him alone to mourn.

Back at the Youth Center, Jason and Tommy train. Jason explains that leaving was not easy but he knew the Rangers would be in good hands with Tommy as their leader. Jason then says he doesn't want Tommy to think that he's going to try and take the leader position back. Tommy consoles him by saying that the Power Rangers are a team and no one of them is more important than another. With a smile, Jason admits that it's good to be back.

Cast

Errors

Notes

  • First appearance of the Super Zeo Zords.
  • This is the last episode where Rocky is second-in-command of the team.
  • This is also the first appearance of Jason Lee Scott since "The Power Transfer".
  • Even though Jason mentions the Peace Conference, the current status of Zack and Trini was not mentioned. The closest they're mentioned is when Jason said "We did a lot of good at the peace conference."
  • The Neo-Plutonium mine, mentioned here as the source for the revived monsters' armor, will later play a role in Wild Force's "Forever Red".
  • This episode marks the first time since Mighty Morphin's "An Oyster Stew" that a Zord battle has taken place underwater. Both episodes feature the Green Ranger's zord as being the one proficient at underwater combat.
  • Goldar and Rito Revolto regain their memories and escape from Bulk and Skull.
  • Jason assures Tommy that although he has returned to the team, he will not try to put things back to how they had been before he left for the World Peace Conference, referring to his leadership of the Power Rangers, showing what a fair man and Ranger he truly is. He would briefly fill in as the leader again during Tommy's absence however.
