|This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Ninja Steel.|
Poisonous Plots is the eleventh episode of Power Rangers Ninja Steel. It is also the fifth episode of the Gold Ranger Arc.
Brody is poisoned by Galvanax's latest contestant. Will the Rangers make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save him?
The episode opens up with Aiden telling the Rangers what happened after Brody was kidnapped by Galvanax ten years ago, revealing he went on the run ever since. Brody is ecstatic to be with his brother again, even allowing him into the base. However, Mick quickly shoes this idea away, as it's only for Rangers. Instead, the six Rangers decide to train with Aiden, where he is shown to be very aggressive towards Hayley and Levi. Brody merely passes this off as him being on his own for so long.
Later in Home Economics, Hayley and Levi are having trouble with their chocolate sculpture for a local children's charity. At the same time, Victor and Monty try to use glue in their chocolate in order to make it harden quickly. Unfortunately, the mold breaks onto Victor's body, encasing him in a durable chocolate shell, resulting in him being petrified into a chocolate statue. While Monty goes to get help, some workers take Victor away, believing him to be a sculpture.
Not long after, the six Rangers head out to deal with a monster their scanners picked up. Instead, they find Aiden dealing with a small army of Kudabots. The Rangers hold them off, until this week's contestant, Toxitea, hits Brody, inflicting a poison into his system. Madame Odius then gives the Rangers the ultimatum: Give her all six Ninja Power Stars in exchange for the antidote, or Brody dies at sunset. Aiden instantly agrees, but the Rangers don't. So Mick agrees to help make their own antidote, while Levi and Hayley take the stars.
Brody follows them, knowing the plan. The trio give up the Ninja Power Stars in exchange for the antidote, much to Preston, Calvin, and Sarah's dismay and anger. They later discover that Hayley and Levi used the stars to make chocolate Power Star copies. As Brody chases after Madame Odius, the others deal with Toxitea, with Preston and Levi dealing the finishing blow.
The audience loves the fight, allowing Toxitea to be Gigantified. Brody and Levi summon the Robo Red Zord and Bull Rider Zord first, allowing the two to fight her. The Rangers quickly join in with their Zords, summoning the Ninja Steel Megazord and the Bull Rider Megazord. The two make quick work of Toxitea, putting her out for good.
Back at the school, Aiden and the others make up, then go join everyone at the chocolate charity. Mrs. Finch then shows a bunch of kids the biggest creation ever: Victor, still encased as a sculpture. As the kids are unaware he's really a human being trapped in a sculpture, they go after Victor's chocolate statue form, to Monty's horror. He falls over and finally breaks out, frightening the kids.
An unknown time later, Odius is shown talking to her newest ally: Aiden!
