The Runaway Bride (花嫁は逃走中 Hanayome wa Tōsōchū) is the twenty-first episode of Ressha Sentai ToQger.


Soap Shadow's ability to switch people's minds and bodies switches Gritta and Mio just as Gritta is to be married to Emperor Z.


At Castle Terminal, Miss Glitta admits to Madame Noir that she does not want to marry Emperor Z before her mother tells her the true purpose of the wedding. More terrified as a result, Miss Glitta confides in General Schwarz that they must flee together while Barone Nero's suspicions of a farce wedding are confirmed. On the Ressha, the ToQgers get ready for summer but Mio is suddenly struck by glimpses of a sad memory of a summer festival. A Kurainer passes by with an invitation to Emperor Z's wedding, which the ToQgers investigate. However, it turns out to be a trap set by Miss Glitta to have her Shadow Creep Sabão Shadow use his ability to switch minds with Mio, while Right, Tokatti, and Hikari also fall under the Shadow Creep's spell. From there, Miss Glitta escapes in Mio's body while Madame Noir arrives to bring back who she believes is her daughter to Castle Terminal. Luckily, ToQ 6gou's interference allows Kagura to get Mio-Glitta to safety before they find Miss Glitta and learn her reasons for wanting to escape. However, as she and Mio begin to weaken, Miss Glitta realizes she was unaware of the fatal side effect of Sabão Shadow's power. Madame Noir learns the truth of the situation and makes a temporary truce with the ToQgers while holding off Barone Nero. Luckily, the male ToQgers manage to defeat Sabão Shadow to undo his spell, allowing Miss Glitta to run off. After Mio promises to tell Kagura what is worrying her later, they join the other ToQgers in the Police Ressha and Fire Ressha that Diesel-Oh equips so it and Build Dai-Oh can destroy Sabão Shadow. After sunset, Miss Glitta arrives to the place she and General Schwarz planned to elope, only for her beloved to have revealed the location to Emperor Z so he can retrieve his bride-to-be.
