United Hand in Hand (手と手をつないで Te to Te o Tsunai de) is the twenty-third episode of Ressha Sentai ToQger and 1900th overall in the Super Sentai Series. This is the debut appearance of Cho Cho ToQ-DaiOh. It features the apparent death of Miss Gritta, who returns 18 episodes later.


The ToQgers must defeat Miss Gritta and General Schwarz while trying to recover their memories of their long lost home town.


The ToQgers barely escape the Imperial Kurainer Robo's Darkness Fall attack, but the Support Ressha are damaged. As Akira proceeds to make repairs, the main ToQgers are attracted to the Sakuma Shrine festival where the memories of their hometown's festival come back to them along with their families. The main ToQgers are then alerted to General Schwarz's appearance and resolve to keep him from attacking the festival. With ToQ 1gou holding back General Schwarz, the other ToQgers manage to reclaim the Ressha. Refusing to give up, General Schwarz summons his personal Kurainer as Cho-ToQ-Oh and BuildDai-Oh are forced to fight him. At that time, upon seeing General Schwarz's handkerchief, Miss Glitta regains a bit of her former self and runs off to aid him in the Imperial Kurainer. While once more subjected to the Darkness Fall, the main ToQgers remember how they were brave at the end of their hometown along with recovering the name of their home: Subarugahama. This mindset allows the ToQgers to have Cho ToQ Oh combine with the Build Ressha to form Cho Cho ToQ Dai-Oh. Miss Glitta uses the Imperial Kurainer Robo to shield General Schwarz's Kurainer from the Cho Cho ToQ Dai-Oh Imagination Express attack. Both Kurainers are destroyed, and Miss Glitta ends up mortally wounded and back to her usual self. Upon seeing Miss Glitta has forgiven him, General Schwarz is about to return her feelings when she is consumed from the inside by a monstrous being revealed to be Emperor Z. He reveals he has acquired Miss Glitta's inner light, and in his new form Emperor Z sends General Schwarz falling into the river while revealing he intends to obtain the main ToQgers' light, the first light he saw, when they meet next time.
