Steel says if ever he breaks down, Nate can just make another one. But Nate explains to Steel that he considers him a brother and wants to take care of him. Steel understands and says they can help each other.
While Scrozzle deals with fixing the Cybergate, Blaze and Roxy use Antennatron to find the Silver Ranger by listening into the Grid Battleforce frequency.
After jogging, Nate brings Steel to see the new zords. General Burke comes to meet them as well. Ben and Betty slip down the zord while cleaning it and offer to fill out all the paperwork to allow Nate to fill the new zords with Morph-X.
The others call Nate and ask if he and Steel would like to hang out. They plan to meet at the Riptide Gym and Blaze and Roxy overhear. Blaze and Roxy bring Tronics and they all battle. The Rangers hurry back to the base.
The Rangers update General Burke and Commander Shaw about Blaze and Roxy wanting to take back Steel. General Burke decides they need to shut down Steel to prevent him from becoming a way for Evox to escape the Cyber Dimension.
Commander Burke laughs at the idea that Nate considers Steel as his brother. Betty is disappointed, but her father orders them all to comply.
The Rangers decide to sneak Steel out of Grid Battleforce and hurry over to where the Cybergate is located so they can destroy it.
But General Burke arrives with backup so they can take Steel back. Just then, Ben and Betty are captured by Blaze and Roxy. General Burke begs them to return his children. But Roxy says only if they hand over Steel.
General Burke hesitates. But Steel offers himself up. Nate says he can’t, but Steel says he has learned from Nate how important family is. Steel says that Rangers protect people in need and right now, there are people in need.
Steel says Evox will be strong with his body. But he is sure the Rangers can defeat him. Blaze and Roxy take Steel inside.
General Burke says he was wrong about Steel and apologizes to Nate. He tells an emotional Nate to get his brother back.
The Rangers morph and take on Tronics before being able to make their way inside. Evox is already entering Steel’s body. But something is wrong. Evox says his virus is incompatible with Steel’s body because it has human DNA in it.
Steel says that is the power of family. He smashes the Cybergate’s controls, destroying it for good.
Blaze, Roxy and Scrozzle return to the Cyber Dimension and leave Antennatron and some Tronics to deal with the Rangers.
When an Antennadrone arrives, Commander Shaw sends the Racer Zord over for Devon to hop into. Devon and Cruise go into Battle Mode. Just then, Gigatronics arrive.
General Burke says to screw procedure and he orders immediate fueling of Nate and Steel’s zords. Nate and Steel take care of the Gigatronics and Devon takes care of Antennadrone. Ravi and Zoey take care of Antennatron and the small Tronics.
Back at GBHQ, General Burke apologizes to Steel and commends the Rangers on a job well done.
I don’t know what it is with Beast Morphers but I sometimes feel like it moves very slowly. It’s a ~22 minute episode, yet it feels like an hour. And I don’t know if that’s a good thing.
Beast Morphers lacks a lot of flash I think. And it seems to be too serious for its own good. It takes a lot of care to make things “realistic,” but too much of that I think takes the fun away from the show.
Anyway, the plot of the episode was fine. Definitely would’ve been better immediately after Episode 8 and not months later. But the idea of family, especially with Nate, was good.
This episode and the story though should’ve been done with the Rangers and the Beast Bots as well. But I think Power Rangers is resigned to treating the Beast Bots as just robot helpers and not family like Steel is with Nate. (They used the fact that he has some of Nate’s DNA which perhaps differentiates him from the Beast Bots.)
Overall, it just feels like I don’t really remember much from the first eight episodes. They weren’t very memorable and that in turn made me feel disconnected while watching this episode after such a long time. Perhaps it’ll just take some getting used to.
