- Mike got a call from his Samuraizer. He was in the Shiba house with Emily, so instead of Mike getting a call of a Nighlok alert from his Samuraizer, the Gap Sensor should've gone off.however it’s possible negatron didn’t set it off and the rangers found him and informed him or somebody working for them reported the attack to mike.
