|This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Ninja Storm.|
Marah earns Dustin's trust and uses him in her plot to have her friend Beevil destroy the Rangers.
Dustin gives his bike to a stranger who offers to upgrade it with an experimental part and gives him the address to his shop. Dustin goes to the address, only to discover it's a construction site. Up in the space fortress, Marah brings in her friend Beevil, who upstages her at being evil, making Marah feel useless. When Beevil attacks a power plant, the Thunder Rangers strike. Feeling dejected, Marah goes to Earth and offers to show Dustin how to defeat Beevil. When the others arrive at the plant, Beevil retreats. Marah meets Dustin and she gives him a device to power up at Ninja Ops which will destroy Beevil. At Ninja Ops, Dustin convinces the others to trust his instincts about Marah. He powers up the device. The others leave to continue fighting Beevil who unleashes the Kelzak Furies on them. Marah saves the Rangers, and battles Beevil. As she is about to be beaten, Dustin arrives with the device. Instead of using the device to destroy Beevil, Marah uses it to power her up, betraying Dustin. Cyber Cam powers up the Ninja Swords to gold and the Rangers destroy Beevil and the Kelzaks. A Scroll of Empowerment later and Beevil is turned into a giant. Dustin destroys Beevil with the Storm Megazord and the Star Blazer Power Sphere. At Storm Chargers, the stranger turns out he was legit after all and brings back Dustin's bike with the new part. Turns out that his printer had been malfunctioning and had accidentally printed out the wrong address.

- Ninja Storm has a fundamental misunderstanding of motocross classes. Dustin supposedly races 125cc which is a two stroke class yet the sounds applied in post production are four stroke sounds. There is no four stroke 125 class. The Shady Guy also offers Dustin a four-stroke exhaust pipe.
- It is unknown why Beevil didn’t summon the Kelzack Furies when the Rangers first fought her. It is possible that she was arrogant enough to believe that she would handle the Rangers all by herself.
- When the Rangers dodge Beevil’s blasts, if you watch carefully, for a split second Cam’s stunt double can be seen.
- When Dustin hops into the Megazord, Shane, and Blake jolt forward.
- Despite dodging Marah’s blast, Kapri is then shown to be blasted moments later.
- Although Beevil only appears in this episode and part 2 of "Storm Before the Calm", Marah's Zord in "Down and Dirty" heavily resembles Beevil.
- Blake references Choobo's deception towards him and Hunter from "Return of Thunder Part I" when he warns Dustin about Marah, saying "Did you miss the whole Choobo thing?".
- A tweet confirms that the Pink Wind Ranger costume Marah wears in her fantasy is the Blue Wind Ranger costume recolored digitally.
- Marah would bring up the events of this episode in part 2 of "Storm Before the Calm" where it's revealed she regrets betraying Dustin and appears to actually have feelings for him.
- Debut of both the Kelzak Furies and the Wind Rangers using their Ninja Swords in Gold Mode.
- Brett Stewart makes a pre-Sam appearance in this episode as Shady Guy.
- This episode is similar to Jungle Fury's Pushed to the Edge in which the Yellow Ranger trusts a villain, but winds up getting hurt.
- Power Sphere 14: Star Blazer is introduced.
- This is the only Ninja Storm episode where the Rangers' visors are opened with Dustin unmorphed.
- This also marks the first time where Cam appears helmetless.
- Scroll 30: Idol and Friendship - Super Sentai counterpart in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger. See comparison page. (fight footage and story)
