Emily is Samurai Ranger Earth, the Yellow Samurai Ranger of Power Rangers Samurai. She is innocent, sweet and the youngest of the Rangers. As Yellow Ranger, she pilots the Ape FoldingZord and controls the element of Earth.
Emily is a sweet, innocent country girl who was never supposed to be the Yellow Samurai Power Ranger. It was her older sister, Serena, who was destined for the squad, but an illness forced Emily to take her place. Although she is a bit of a fish out of water, the passion of the team and the bustle of the city inspires Emily to train hard and make her sister proud.
Samurai and Super Samurai
In Sticks and Stones, it was revealed that, as a young girl, Emily was said to be a crybaby and was often picked on by her peers. When her sister, who was originally going to be the Yellow Ranger, got ill, Emily was chosen as the Yellow Ranger, and promised not to cry ever again. This helped her teach her teammates how to not be affected by Negatron.
She later on helps Mike fight a Nighlok, when the other Rangers are swapped with inanimate objects, when the Nighlok grew, Mike used the Black Box and summoned the Claw Armor Megazord. They agree to "never fight another Nighlok together alone again".
Her greatest time to shine came when a Nighlok caused extreme hunger and thirst in all the Rangers, save for her. She battled the Nighlok one-on-one, proving she's tough, and a strong fighter, even without the others. During this battle, she used the Black Box for the first time.
In Samurai Forever, after defeating Master Xandred along with her team, Emily goes home to take care of Serena at home. Mike goes with Emily to "help her move things." But it is unknown if they started dating since they hold hands at the end.
Emily along with the other Samurai Rangers and other Ranger teams are seen in Troy's premonition about the Legendary Battle.
She and the other Rangers are seen again in another of Troy's dream/vision about the Legendary Battle.
Emily and the other Samurai Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers. She was one of the Rangers who saluted the Mega Rangers.
When Zayto suggests they use the Legendary Database and find a weapon from the Ranger legacy to use against Wreckmate, looking at the Database, Zayto suggests building Jayden’s Fire Smasher due to its enormous size and power. Emily and the other Samurai Rangers are seen in the archive footage during the battle against Tooya. However, Solon says she does not have the means to make a Power Disc to harness its full power.
Battle against Drakkon
When events set into motion by Lord Drakkon cause the timeline to split into a pocket universe, each anchored on a power-set. Kevin and the other Samurai Rangers are split off into their own pocket universe. The split occurs after they defeated the Nighlok where Lauren is back leading the Samurai Rangers whilst Jayden and Mentor Ji are away on a secret mission.
Lord Drakkon and his Mastodon and Sabertooth Tiger Sentries arrive at the Shiba House. Emily and the other Samurai Rangers leave the Shiba house and see Lord Drakkon and an army of the Ranger Sentries, the Samurai Rangers decided to attack Drakkon and his Ranger Sentries. Emily easily defeated some of the Ranger Sentries, however she is captured by Drakkon's Sentries.
Defeated and Captured
In the aftermath of Lord Drakkon siezing control of the Shiba House and the Samuraizers of the Samurai Rangers, is see by Zordon and Alpha 5 in the Command Center before that he must have an audience with the Emissaries.
Emily and her teammates are mentioned by Lauren asking the Mighty Morphin Rangers about Lord Drakkon, what happened with them and the only response they gave her is "do you really want to know?"
When the timeline was restored, so was Emily.

Emily is innocent, sweet, tomboyish and the youngest of the Rangers. As Yellow Ranger, she pilots the Ape FoldingZord and controls the element of Earth. Having grown up teased due to her tendency to cry, Emily tends to be shy around others. She suffers from a lack of self-confidence and as a result doesn't say much despite her desire to help those around her. Her sister Serena taught Emily how to de-sensitize herself to criticism. While the insults do hurt her, Emily is able to steel herself past all manner of degradation to achieve her current objective. Emily has also demonstrated moderate acting ability; as seen during her dealings with Bulk and Spike.
She seems to have a romantic interest in her friend and ally Mike.
