When the Nighlok started emerging again, Jayden and Mentor Ji went off to investigate, and Lauren resumed duties as leader of the Samurai Rangers. While they were training, Lord Drakkon and his Ranger Sentries attacked the Shiba House, overpowering the team and stealing their morphers. Lauren managed to escape with her morpher, and was rescued by Jen Scotts, the Pink Time Force Ranger, and the Mighty Morphin Ranger Team.
Lauren was immediately brought to the Command Center, where she met Zordon and learnt from Jen the true extent of Lord Drakkon's ambition to seize the various Ranger worlds. When Zordon received a message from Doctor K, who revealed herself to have developed a method of neutralizing the Black Dragon Cannons that the Ranger Sentries had been using to instantly demorph Rangers, Lauren accompanied her Red Ranger counterpart, Jason Lee Scott, to the world of the Ranger Operators where they intended to retrieve Doctor K so she could adapt her defenses for the other teams. Arriving just outside of the domed city of Corinth, Lauren and Jason came to the assistance of the Ranger Operators in the latter's Tyrannosaurus Dinozord, only to find that Lord Drakkon was personally leading Sentry reinforcements in the assault on Corinth.

- Kyle Higgins revealed at Power Morphicon 2018 that he had to cease the romantic flirtation of Lauren and Jason during the Shattered Grid arc because he was informed by higher ups that Lauren was roughly 25 years old during the events of Power Rangers Samurai, a fact that was never revealed about her before.
