This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Wild Force.

Secrets and Lies is the eighteenth episode of Power Rangers Wild Force. The episode continues the arc focusing on Cole and the fate of his parents, Richard and Elizabeth Evans.


An attack from Signal Org results in the loss of Cole's memory. He ends up on a farm, and is eventually found by the Rangers and returned to normal just in time to defeat Signal Org. Also, Alyssa discovers that Cole's parents have been presumed dead.


Master Org punishes Toxica for her attempt to gain power from Nayzor's crown, and is only saved by Jindrax' intervention. Master Org orders them to find a new Org.

Alyssa finds Cole combing the city for information on his lost parents. Eager to help, she takes him to the library and suggests he looks them up on the internet. They find an article and Alyssa starts printing it out when the two are contacted by Princess Shayla about an Org attack. Leaving the printout behind, the two head into battle. Signal Org causes Cole to lose his memory. Alyssa informs the others what has happened while a farm family takes in Cole.

Max and Danny find Cole and contact the others. Before they approach him, Alyssa suggests they leave him as he is clearly happy with life on the farm and reveals the information she obtained at the library; a newspaper article showing Cole, his parents and another scientist to have been declared dead after a failed expedition in the jungle. Although Danny and Max consider that Alyssa may be right, Taylor convinces them its the wrong thing to do; Cole is their leader and they need him, and he'd want to know the truth be it good or bad. Together they talk to Cole and on their way to the Animarium Signal Org attacks them again. During the battle Cole regains his memory. Signal Org is beaten, and then enlarged by Toxica, although he is easily taken out for good by the Wild Force Megazord Spear Mode.

In the Nexus, Toxica and Jindrax explore Master Org's chamber based on Toxica's suspicions that he may be human (having seen him previously moving his horn). They find the same photo present on the newspaper article regarding Cole's parents... Master Org looks identical to the third scientist. Master Org catches them, and Toxica blasts off his horn, revealing it to be a fake and confirming Master Org is a human. Master Org then catches Toxica and Jindrax in his vines and transforms them into more powerful forms as well as brainwashing them into being completely loyal.

Afterwards Alyssa, Danny, Max, and Taylor have the difficult task of telling Cole that his parents are presumed dead. Cole visits the tombstones of his parents consumed with grief, devastated that his quest to find his parents has led him here. Taylor, however, gives Cole hope... he was also declared dead along with his parents, and has his own tombstone. If Cole survived, maybe his parents did too somehow.
