Forty-sixth Lesson - Gyawa-Gyawa Memories (修行その46 ギャワギャワの記憶 Shugyō Sono Yonjūroku: Gyawa-Gyawa no Kioku) is the forty-sixth episode of Juken Sentai Gekiranger. It is the third episode of Gekirangers six-episode endgame arc, featuring the final revelation regarding the past of Rio and Jan and the truth behind the Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion, in particular the manipulations of Long into his role as "the Great Destroyer".


After witnessing Rio become an uncontrollable monster, he and Jan must confront memories of the past revealing the horrible connection they hold and the source of everything that has happened.


Though Rio has awakened as the Gen Jū King as Long intended, Mele manages to snap him out of it and takes him away. Later that night, after Gou returns from a physical check up, the gang were curious about Rio's condition until Jan sniffs out the scale Sha-Fu found at ruins of Dan's hometown, feeling he saw it before. Wanting to know what happened, Sha-Fu has Gorie use his Geki Waza Sleep-Sleep Fist on Jan to have him relive his memories of when he first felt "gyawa-gyawa". In his trance, Jan's hidden memory is unsealed as he reveals that a dragon wiped out the village and its inhabitants before assuming a human form: Long, who then personally murdered Jan's mother, who managed to save him by sending into the stream, the shock of which caused his amnesia. Meanwhile, Sanyo hunts down Rio under Long's orders, but the interference of Mele's apprentice, Gen Jū Pixie-Ken mistress Hisho, allows them to escape and make their way to where Rio lost his family, which the Gekirangers came after Sha-Fu had a horrific feeling that Rio's past is tied to Jan's. After learning of Long's part in Jan's past, "Hisho" reveals herself to be Long in disguise and explains his goal: to have Rio become the Destroyer and demolish the world. The reason for this is that unlike humans, he is an immortal dragon that is bored with the world and seeks to create entertainment for himself. After attacking Rio's family all those years ago, he witnessed Rio being found by Sha-Fu and allowed him to train Rio, but kept careful observation. The Kensei had ruined his plans before when they sealed away Maku, whom he helped create the Rin Juken, before he could assume the role of Destroyer. Long further reveals that he wounded Dan that night of his final battle with Rio. Manipulating every major event in his life, Long set Rio up on the path to be conditioned without any emotion but the desire to fight. Rio is horrified by the startling revelation as the Gekirangers are enraged by Long's sick ideology, with Jan especially furious that Long murdered his family for his own enjoyment. Just as Jan tries to attack him, however, the real Hisho arrives and takes the Gekirangers away while Long forces Rio to reveal his last attachment, when Mele arrives to battle Long for Rio's sake. While this occurs, the Gekirangers use the Geki Beasts to destroy Hiso. By the time the gang arrives back, Long is about to deal the deathblow on Mele, when Rio takes the hit meant for her. Seeing Mele to be Rio's true final attachment, Long takes her away so Rio can become the Destroyer for good.
