Episode Thoughts

Well, if only the rest of the half-season were this exciting, right?

This episode definitely packed a lot into it. I even feel like it packed two episodes worth of story into it. A few things didn’t have time to breathe, like Ravi’s battle with avatarRoxy or Mayor Daniels learning Devon was the Red Ranger. (It was a very underwhelming reveal, tbh.)

But this episode was definitely revving up for the midseason finale. And it really feels like a midseason finale too. The stakes are high, but not so high that you feel like it’s the end of the Beast Morphers. It really does feel like a midseason finale and you know there’s still a whole half season left after next week.

Still, it’s hard for this episode not to be exciting when so much was happening all at once.

Other than the sort of underwhelming reaction from Mayor Daniels, the rest of the episode was strong. This episode had probably the best and most dynamic New Zealand-original action sequences all season. Ben and Betty’s shopping cart takedown of the Tronics was even more enjoyable than most of the action sequences and fight scenes from the season. Creative and fun.

Ravi has really become the season’s most developed character. And the moment with his mother who went from reprimanding him to comforting him was so good.

Blaze actually being able to enact a plan was also refreshing. Like I mentioned after the last few episodes, the villains have been pretty pathetic when it comes to their plans and actually causing trouble for the Rangers. That’s why Vargoyle was such a welcome addition and definitely gone too soon.

So seeing the plan actually be successful this time was good. It gives the dire situation more legitimacy, so to speak.

What I’m most interested in is what actually happens after the midseason finale. I can only assume Evox ends up destroyed. (Otherwise, what’s the point of this midseason finale, you know?) So I’m very interested to see who becomes the new big bad.

I supposed it could be Blaze, to mesh with the Go-Busters footage. But thinking about the footage, I knew avatar Roxy would have to bid farewell before the end of this midseason. Should be interesting to see where Roxy fits in after she recovers.

Overall, a very exciting episode and great lead-in to the midseason finale. Definitely one of the strongest and most enjoyable episodes of Beast Morphers so far. But again, probably could’ve been great as Episodes 18 and 19 instead.

  1. Nice to see conflict between Devon and his father, Mayor Daniels again.
    I like the father/son issue for this season, where Mayor Daniels doesn’t get along with Devon very well, since Mayor is completely unaware that Devon is ranger and he has to take care of that responsibility.
    Didn’t expect Mayor Daniels in action, where he fends off Tronics… with shovel!
    With that type of courage, I really hope he wins the election.

    Interesting how Betty was older than Ben; all this time, I thought it was opposite.
    I like how they were probably the most useful in this entire season, where they were the first to find stolen Mega Transporters and did their best to protect the last one, while fending off Tronics with groceries, such as banana (classic!) and sausages… until they forgot to close the rear window and stolen by Blaze; though, even if it was closed, Blaze would have broken the window anyway.

    I enjoyed the battle between Ravi and Roxy’s final conflict.
    It was well choreographed and great use of Ravi weakness of overheat, which was huge advantage. Even though she was Avatar, it’s somewhat gruesome and hardcore to see human faced villain, to blow up like that, which we haven’t seen in long time.
    Since Avatar Roxy is “dead”, the real Roxy is awakened, though not immediately; I’m curious if that USB gave her some other side effect.

    Nice to see all 4 Beast Bots together, even briefly at the end.

    Mayor Daniel found out Devon is ranger and now kidnapped, and Evox is about to get his body, how would it end? Such a great cliffhanger for upcoming season finale!

    As much as I enjoyed this episode, I agree that it felt bit rushed and crammed, where Mayor Daniels and Devon conflict and Ravi and Roxy final battle could have been its own episode.
    But regardless, it was very thrilling and exciting set up for season finale and end of first half.

  2. Man. Just when I thought last week’s episode was the best of the season, this one takes the cake.
    I like how this episode had a back-and-forth of set backs for both heroes and villains, makes you wondering which side will win.
    There was some amazing fights, especially Ravi vs Roxy, and it was all original footage, no less.
    Ben & Betty were surprisingly useful to the Rangers.
    The Cheetah Claws (and the Shovel XD) made a short but sweet return.
    This episode just had everything.
    I’ve never been so hyped for Power Rangers in a long time.

    1. Just like Ninja Steel, the comic relief duo only becomes useful during the penultimate and finale episodes. That’s too bad. There was really an opportunity to make Ben and Betty more than just using them for slapstick gags. As we saw in this episode. They can still be funny and also relevant to the story if the show wanted to.

      Ravi and Roxy’s fight was definitely one of the best choreographed fights this season. Most of the action scenes this season were nowhere near the quality of this one here.
