Recap: Power Rangers Beast Morphers, Episode 4 – Digital Deception
It’s Valentine’s Day. Ravi visits Roxy in her pod and he reminisces about last year’s romantic day.
Avatar Roxy says it’s interesting how she still has the real Roxy’s memories, but without all the emotions. She has an idea to use Valentine’s Day to seduce Ravi to their side.
Roxy heads to the real world to create a Shoveltron at the park. Nate is there shopping for flowers and he calls it in. Devon, Ravi and Zoey are at the gym for some cookies and carrots as Commander Shaw alerts them to the attack.
The Rangers head over. Devon and Zoey take on the Tronics and they leave Shoveltron to Ravi.
AvatarRoxy hides in the bushes and trips Ravi to give Shoveltron an opening. But Roxy jumps in and pretends to care about Ravi by stopping Shoveltron from finishing him off.
Back at HQ, Commander Shaw wonders what the Robotron was up to. She also questions what Nate was doing in the area when Shoveltron attacked, but he is too shy to say.
Commander Shaw orders Nate have a buddy with him at all times from now on, for his own safety.
After Commander Shaw leaves, Ravi asks Nate if it’s possible there’s some good in the Avatar Roxy. Both Devon and Zoey doubt that and think it’s pretty suspicious.
Upset, Ravi leaves and heads to the park. Avatar Roxy appears with a Valentine’s rose for him. She says she is able to overcome the virus from time to time, but to fully escape Evox’s hold, she needs his help. She asks him to bring her the Neural Aligner from Nate’s lab. She says she can use it to cancel the effects of the virus.
Ravi isn’t sure, but Roxy pleads with him before she leaves.
Ravi heads to the lab and asks Nate about the possibility of the Neural Aligner reversing the virus. He says he’d have to do more research.
While Nate isn’t looking, Ravi takes one and stuffs it in his duffel bag.
Later, Devon and Zoey come to the lab looking for Ravi. Nate notices the Neural Aligner is gone. Zoey is sure Avatar Roxy put him up to it. They head to the park, sure that’s where they will meet.
Ravi hands the Neural Aligner to Avatar Roxy and she connects it to the Morph-X. She plans to infect him with the virus and mocks him for believing there was good in her.
Devon and Zoey arrive just in time to stop Ravi from being fully infected. They fight off Shoveltron while Scrozzle tells Roxy to bring the Neural Aligner back with her.
The Rangers morph.
Shoveltron summons some Tronics. Devon takes on the Tronics while Ravi and Zoey take on Shoveltron.
Scrozzle sends a Beta Model Gigadrone to the human world and morphs it into Shoveldrone which begins to rampage.
Cruise arrives and he and Devon hop into Racer Zord. In Battle Mode they’re able to take on the Shoveldrone before it sucks up Morph-X.
At the same time, Devon, Ravi and Zoey are able to take care of both Shoveltron and Shoveldrone.
In the Cyber Dimension, Evox and Scrozzle are talking about how to use the Neural Aligner to help release Evox from here. Blaze and Roxy are upset that Scrozzle is doing this behind their backs.
Back at GBHQ, Ravi visits with podRoxy again. He then apologizes to Devon and Zoey about being stubborn earlier. They reaffirm their teamwork.
Later, Zoey gets a bouquet of yellow flowers from a secret Valentine (aka Nate). Commander Shaw tells the Rangers about their Valentines from their fans. But Ben and Betty are trying to catch a bee.
I enjoyed this episode. I think I liked it a little better than the last one even. I wasn’t expecting the show to touch on Ravi and AvatarRoxy this soon. But it was done pretty well, even if predictable.
In other romantic gestures, Nate liking Zoey is cute. And I think they can definitely get a lot of story from that with regards to Nate’s being lonely growing up.
Interesting to see the possible tension between Scrozzle and Blaze/Roxy this early as well.
There was a lot of Go-Busters footage this time. But it’s good that the action was great and fun.
And this was definitely the worst use of Ben and Betty so far. And using that certain piece of music for their scenes did not help.
Overall though, it was an interesting and enjoyable episode.
