Dillon is given the chance to become the Black Ranger, but even after he passes all the tests, he himself still doesn't want to. After realizing he can protect others with the power he accepts the role, but he still has some obstacles to overcome.
SynopsisThe Rangers show Dillon around the Garage. Doctor K explains the creation of the ranger powers. She was the leader of a research team three years prior to Venjix's attack. They were creating special armor that could enhance the ability of soldiers. During this research, they discovered a powerful energy grid that connected all living things. This discovery led to the creation of the Power Suits, which Dillion makes fun of them for appearing to be spandex. But Doctor K angrily corrects them, stating that it is not spandex, but techno-organic armor. Dillion wants no part in helping the Rangers and says that he has to be moving on. The Ranger's remind him that he could go straight back to jail. They tell him about the trials that one would take to qualify to be a Ranger. Dillon is intrigued and agrees to undergo the tests. The Rangers put him under a set of tests to test his endurance, strength, and stamina. Dillon aces the tests, however, Scott still is not sure if they can trust Dillion. Doctor K says that the Series Black Suit must go online before the next attack, but Dillon still doesn't want to be the Black Ranger. Venjix creates a series nine robot named Water Hoser. He plans to send them in the cities' vents. with a mist that will weaken Corinth's shields.The Rangers take him through a tour of the city. Where he sees families enjoying themselves in a picnic. Dillion figures that the Rangers are trying to convince him to fight for the people. Dillon tells them that he failed somebody (who he can't remember) once and that the Ranger's shouldn't trust them. Summer says that he is just the type of person she would trust. Dillion looks at two children playing with their families. He tells the Rangers he will join them on one condition.
Ziggy gets led out of jail and happily greats the Rangers. Scott asks Dillion if this is actually his one condition as he wonders why Dillon would want Ziggy. Dillon explains that Ziggy makes good shadow puppets. Back at the garage, Dillon morphs into Black Ranger for the first time. The other Rangers morph to join him. Ziggy gets excited and starts taking pictures, which annoys Doctor K. Before stepping away, Ziggy mentions the word spandex and winds up being assigned to wash the floor with a toothbrush.
Scott shows Dillion to his room. Dillion listens to the music in his locket. That night he has a nightmare about someone from his past. He gets up and goes to Scott's car. Ziggy tells him of a way out of the city, but tries to get him to stay. Dillon takes off with Scott's car. The Rangers are alerted to a Venjix attack and realize that Dillion took off with Scott's car. Scott is mad that someone else drove his car. The Rangers take off to battle the Grinders. Dillon waits for the vents to stop so he can escape the city in Scott's car. The Rangers defeat the Grinders and face the monster, who is able to get away. The monster grows to a giant.
The Rangers run into another wave of Grinders and our overmatched. They try using their energy attacks, but cant' destroy enough of the enemy. They begin to lose their power. Ziggy rigs things at the lab so that Dillon will hear the Ranger's battle, via the radio. Dillon has a change of heart and goes to the battle scene. Dillon shoots out of the car and morphs into the Black Ranger. He tells the others to deal with the Attack Bot while he fights the Grinders himself. The others summon the zords and form the Megazord. Dillon is able to hold his own against the Grinders. As the Megazord fight continues, The Attack Bot damages a bridge. The Megazord holds it together so cars can cross by. The Rangers then trick the Attack Bot into holding the bridge. They destroy him with the Super Saber. Meanwhile Dillon is able to defeat the Grinders. Scott asks him about his car. Dillion smartly says that he is okay, not mentioning the car at all. Scott asks Dillion again, but Dillion turns of his com-link and walks away.
