In the Limelight is the thirty-sixth episode of Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue and is the final episode before The Fate of Lightspeed Saga.


Dana, struggling to make ends meet for medical school, is discovered by fashion maven Koko Kashmere. She quickly becomes a top model for Glitz Magazine, the fame going to her head and causing her to neglect her Ranger duties. Can she snap out of it in time to help her teammates against the Treevil monster?


The demons watch as Queen Bansheera begins a transformation. Vypra takes the chance to order a monster attack, using Treevil. The Rangers rush to the destruction, and help the injured. A nearby news photographer snaps pictures of the heroic rescue efforts. The next day, Dana's newspaper pic is spotted by talent scout Koko Kashmere, who wants Dana for a new Glitz Magazine job as the new "Glitz Girl." Catching her at the Mariner Bay library, Koko Kashmere convinces Dana to take the job so that she can pay her way through medical school.

Dana spends the day posing, and ignores her Morpher. Unfortunately, there was an emergency, but only four Rangers were able to go battle Treevil. They were defeated, even with Mega-Battle Armor and Carter's Battlizer. When Kelsey sees Dana at the Aquabase, she complains of her absence at the battle, and tells her how badly they got beaten.

While the two hang out, Dana is hounded by fans for autographs. A limo shows up shortly after and takes Dana away to more work. At training the next day, Dana acts like a primadonna, answering her cell phone on the obstacle course, and talking bad about Kelsey. A limo shows up to take her to a fashion show. At the fashion show, her Morpher goes off, but she decides to ignore it as per Koko's suggestion. The emergency was Treevil, who has struck an industrial area. The Rangers combine four V-Lancer blasts, but it is deflected back at them. Just as things look bad, Dana appears. She is giving up her short lived modelling job to return as the Pink Ranger.

They combine V-Lancer shots again. With five blasters this time, Treevil is easily destroyed. Treevil is revived as a giant. He shoots some vines underground to tear it up. The Lightspeed Megazord falls into one of the cracks made by the tremor. It pulls itself out with the ladder arms, and then destroys Treevil with the Lightspeed Megazord Saber.

Sometime later, back at the library, after being told off for running away from her scheduled fashion show the other day, Dana tells Koko Kashmere that she's quitting the Glitz Girl job and will go through medical school on her brains instead of her beauty. Just as Kelsey catches up, Koko does not hide the fact that she wants her as the new Glitz Girl. But fortunately, Kelsey turns down the offer, leaving Koko dumbfounded.



  • Koko doesn’t notice Dana’s Morpher until they take pictures.
  • When Kelsey falls in the mud she land on her bottom, yet when she gets up she’s now on her stomach.
    • Also when she falls she’s facing left, but mysteriously enough, she facing right, when she gets up.
  • Due to a reused footage the Rangers switch place when they defeat Treevil.
  • When Treevil grows they're still in the city, but when fighting in the Megazord, they’re now in the forest.


  • This is the last time that the Lightspeed Megazord uses the Saber. It was only used in two more episodes, the next episode where Queen Bansheera fled before they could use the Saber and the penultimate episode where it only appeared as the Lightspeed Solarzord and was destroyed.
  • Jinxer doesn't need a monster card to create a monster in this episode since he just tosses a growth card into a tree and turns it into Treevill
  • Ryan Mitchell and Ms. Fairweather don't appear in this episode.
  • This episode is the final time that Glitz Magazine appears for the next twenty years. It did not return until Beast Morphers Season 2's episode "Secret Struggle".
