Forty-second Lesson - Wasshi-Wasshi Moving On! (修行その42 ワッシワッシで乗り越えろ! Shugyō Sono Yonjūni: Wasshi-Wasshi de Norikoero) is the forty-second episode of Juken Sentai Gekiranger. It is the conclusion of the two-part story delving into Jan Kandou's origins associated with Dan/Suugu and the battle with Long's Genjuken fighters, Dorou and Sojo, along with foreshadowing a detail that will come into play in the endgame.


As Dorou and Sojo capture the other Gekiranger, Xia Fu leads Jan back to the village of his birth in order to teach him an important lesson to get over his anxiety burden.


The four Gekirangers are defeated by Long's Twin Phantoms, who use stronger Dorou Grains to seal the four into a gourd like the others for Dorou's Scream Program. Meanwhile, reporting his minions' success, Long advises Rio that his rivalry with Jan is pointless, only to be knocked down for overestimating Jan. After surviving their encounter with Mele, Jan and Sha-Fu arrive to Dan's hometown where the Geki Jūken began. Once there, the two find the place in ruins from a landslide, just after Dan is killed by Rio, as Jan finds a locket with a picture of himself as a baby and the parents he never knew. With Sha-Fu speculating Dan's feelings for his son, enabling Jan to decide not to runaway from his troubles and face them head on as a Gekiranger. Regaining his Geki Changer, Jan assumes Super Form and frees everyone from the gourds. Super Geki Red then battles Long's Twin Phantoms until the others join in. But Long, annoyed that Jan could defeat his minions, attacks Jan personally before re energizing his Twin Phantoms to enlarge, use their tag-team to overwhelm the Gekirangers until the tables turn. While Dorou is destroyed by the Geki Beasts, Sojo was destroyed by SaiDaiGeki Tohja. Although Jan is staying with the team with a "wasshiwasshi" feeling, Sha-Fu is worried about the golden scale he found in the ruins.
