Synopsis

While Trakeena plots her revenge on the Red Ranger for destroying her father, the underhanded Deviot hires two monsters, Kubak and Teksa, to get rid of her. Villamax and Deviot capture Leo but his friends are able to free him using the Galaxy Megazord against Kubak. The two monsters are destroyed and Deviot is angry that his plot to overthrow Trakeena has failed but vows to triumph next time.

Plot

Aboard the Scorpion StingerTrakeena has ordered Kegler to lock the cocoon away for safety although she plans to keep it around just in case she needs it. Later she thinks about Scorpius's final moments as Villamax interrupts to inform her that the Red Ranger has been located, Trakeena orders that Villamax captures him immediately, planning swift and brutal revenge for the death of her father.

Meanwhile the return of Trakeena just before he could enter the cocoon has infuriated Deviot, who sees his chances of gaining its powers getting further and further away from him. He secretly hires Kubak and Teksa to assassinate Trakeena in exchange for a chest of gold and jewels.

On Terra Venture, Leo and Kai are training against each other when Villamax interrupts. He introduces himself to the pair, making clear his loyalty to Trakeena and challenges Leo to a fight since he was the one to kill her father. Leo and Kai face Villamax in a fierce fight using their Quasar Sabers. Kai is defeated while Leo is able to do better but is still outmatched when it comes to swordsmanship.

Shortly after Deviot appears to assist Villamax, he immobilizes Kai and brings the other Rangers and Mike in chains. Leo is horrified to see his friends and brother as prisoners, and Villamax promises to release the others if Leo agrees to surrender to Trakeena as he is the only one she wants. Despite the others' protests, Leo de-morphs and tosses his Morpher and Quasar Saber aside and is taken away without resistance. Deviot is horrified when Villamax lets the other Rangers go, since they could take them all to Trakeena, but Villamax explains that he gave his word to Leo and he must honor his promise.

Trakeena imprisons Leo in a chamber on her ship and briefly confronts him about her father's death, Leo claims he had no choice but to destroy Scorpius to protect Terra Venture. Trakeena creates a fire hole on the ground ordering Leo to be thrown into it.

Leo observes his Quasar Saber in Deviot's hands and leans on a Stingwinger to get out of the hole. He manages to retrieve his saber and escapes the Scorpion Stinger by running through the dunes of the planet where the ship has landed. Deviot incorrectly instructs Villamax of the direction in which Leo has fled to mislead him and then indicates the correct location of the Leo for Trakeena so that she can look for him alone and fall into his trap.

Leo and Trakeena fight in a melee battle within an energetic force field activated by her. Trakeena takes great advantage during the fight putting into practice the results of his training with Villamax.

Meanwhile, Deviot begins his plan by ordering Kubak and Teksa to destroy Trakeena making it appear that the blame for the princess's death is exclusively for Leo.

Deviot destroys the energy field by stopping the fighting and enabling Kubak and Teksa to attack Trakeena by surprise. Leo takes advantage of the two assassins' intervention to escape. Trakeena does not face great difficulties in the fight and easily eliminates Teksa leaving Kubak terrified. She immobilizes Kubak demanding that he reveal the one responsible for planning her destruction but Deviot destroys him before he can reveal the whole truth.

In the meantime the other Rangers arrive on the planet to rescue Leo and join him against Trakeena. However before starting a new battle Kubak appears giant and interrupts the confrontation. Trakeena and Deviot leave the scene. The Rangers fight against Kubak using the Galaxy Megazord, defeating the monster with the Condor Galactazord's Missile Launch.

Later, Trakeena reappears before the Power Rangers and swears that they will pay for his father's death. Leo guarantees that they will be prepared for the next confrontation.

In the Scorpion Stinger, Villamax delivers a small dagger to Deviot as a token of loyalty and respect. Deviot belittles the present away from the sights of Villamax but is noticed by Kegler who hears everything.

    LG Ep 22 error.png

    • Also, despite going to capture the Rangers, the villains didn't enlist the help of a monster to ensure victory. 


Notes

Leo Corbett rage.jpeg

  • This episode is where the shot of Leo ripping his shirt off from the theme song comes from in what has become one of the most famous images in the franchise's history. The original placement of this image was when Trakeena traps Leo for their final battle and he does this before morphing.
    • Although unclear, the presumed reasons for this was both the extensive damage his shirt had already received up to that point and as a literal representation of the saying "the gloves are now off."
  • This episode marks the first time since the Rangers acquired the Lights of Orion that they don't appear.
  • This episode marks the first time the Condor Galactazord's Missile Launch attack has been used as a finishing move since the Rangers received the Lights of Orion.
  • Damon and the girls remain morphed throughout the entire episode.
