|This article is about a/an episode in Power Rangers Super Samurai.|
The Sealing Symbol is the nineteenth episode of Power Rangers Super Samurai, the second season of Power Rangers Samurai. It is the fourth of the five-episode endgame arc. It is the first and only appearance of Mike in Shark Attack Mode as well as the final appearance of Lauren's Red Samurai Ranger form & Dayu.
With Master Xandred back on Earth, the Rangers finally attempt to use the Sealing Symbol to stop him - only to discover that he has a special new defense against it. Now, they must rise to the challenge and find a new way to defeat him and save the world.
The episode starts with a recap from the final scene of Evil Reborn. The theme song starts and ends. Xandred finally is awakened and thanks Dayu for bring him back. But Dayu reveals that the harmonium music was not for Xandred, as it was for Deker. Xandred is surprised, as he absorbs Dayu. The rangers fight against him. Lauren gathers the rangers together and tells them that she's ready to use the sealing symbol against Xandred, but it takes a long time to write so she'll need them to protect her while she does so. Kevin is handed the Black Box and Mike is handed the Shark Disc. Kevin and Mike transform into Super Mode and Shark Attack Mode. The 5 rangers head on while Jayden is fighting is own group of Moogers. The Rangers manage to successfully keep Xandred busy and he isn't able to get close to Lauren as she prepares the symbol for use. Eventually, as Jayden finishes off the Moogers, Lauren finishes the symbol and fires it at Xandred. It manages to hit and pushes him back towards a cliff-face before causing a huge explosion, seemingly having worked successfully. The Rangers begin to relax, thinking they've won... when Xandred emerges from the flames, the sealing symbol having not worked. The Rangers despair, unable to understand what went wrong as well as noticing a new white patch on Xandred's chest. It turns out that when he absorbed Dayu he also absorbed her humanity, making him immune to the sealing symbol as well as removing his need for Sanzu River water. He then blasts the Rangers full force, and scores a direct hit on Lauren, demorphing and injuring her. Before Xandred can finish them off, Jayden arrives and covers their escape.
The Rangers return to the Shiba House, worried that Xandred may now be too powerful to be defeated. Outside, Lauren is sitting down looking at the stars with a cast. Jayden comes out and sits down with her. Lauren's job was to seal Master Xandred, but she failed. She hands leadership back to Jayden. Later, she calls for a meeting, stating Jayden's leadership. Jayden sits down and says his plan is to destroy Xandred like any other Nighlok. But Kevin doesn't think they'll defeat Xandred so easily. Lauren reveals the Shiba Fire Disc, stating that she is too hurt to battle, but has packed every single ounce of Symbol Power in the disc.
The next morning, in the city, Xandred and Octoroo sail out into the human world, and set off multiple sensors. The rangers look onto their map, and see a whole bunch of attacks like an invasion. The 6 rangers go down and stop on a hill in their training uniforms. Jayden and the rangers state that they are ready. Any army of Moogers (more then the army in Clash of the Red Rangers) look and see the rangers. The rangers morph, and role call. They head on down and destroy the Moogers before getting ready for Xandred. Jayden transforms into Super Samurai Mode and the rangers form an attack formation. Mia and Emily in front of Jayden. Mike and Kevin behind Jayden. Antonio behind Mike and Kevin watching their backs. Jayden finally gets to Xandred, and with the Super Spin Sword loaded with the Shiba Fire Disc and the Lion Disc, Jayden takes the strike at Xandred's white patch, however that wasn't enough. Jayden is knocked away, shattering the Shiba Fire Disc to pieces. Xandred uses the Nether Winds and Flames of the Neatherworld, powering down the rangers. Xandred recommends the rangers to surrender, but Jayden refused. Xandred decided to go to Lauren, seeing if the rangers would give up.
