Recap: Power Rangers Beast Morphers (Season 2), Episode 22 (2) – Save Our Shores
The Rangers and Blaze head to the beach to join Roxy who is helping clean up a spill from a shipping vessel full of trash. Roxy’s Aunt Regina is the CEO of Collins Industries who is responsible for the disaster and she has put Roxy in charge of the clean up.
When they find a sea turtle that is near death, they realize the beach is full of living things that could be affected by the trash so they vow to save each and every one of them.
Over in the Crystal Dimension, Evox appears as Scrozzle works on their next move. Scrozzle warns Evox of using his human body too much or his cover could be blown. In the meantime, Scrozzle creates Trappertron.
Blaze and Zoey accompany Roxy to ask Aunt Regina to donate money to the Marine Center in order to save the animals. But Aunt Regina doesn’t think it is her responsibility to pay to help every single animal in the ocean.
Roxy decides to call the Marine Center on behalf of Collins Industries anyway and promises the company will pay for EVERYTHING.
Just then, Trappertron traps Blaze and Roxy in a cage and hurls Zoey down the stairs. The guys arrive. They morph and take on Tronics.
Scrozzle appears and scans Blaze and Roxy before slipping away. Ravi hurries over to use his super strength to pull the bars apart as the others finish off Trappertron.
Back in the Crystal Dimension, Scrozzle uploads the DNA he scanned from Blaze and Roxy and uses it to resurrect their avatars.
Later at the Marine Center, Aunt Regina comes to question how money was authorized for the donation. Roxy admits she was the one that called. Aunt Regina maintains it is not their responsibility to pay for everything. But she changes her mind when she sees a dying turtle on the table.
The Rangers get a call and they hurry over to a Morph X Tower where they meet robotBlaze and robotRoxy. They battle and the resurrected avatars show off their new suits.
The Rangers morph and continue fighting. They summon their Beast-X Ultra Blasters to finish off the robos and Tronics. But Scrozzle has already collected barrels of Morph-X. He teleports away as the Rangers hop into their zords to deal with a Gigadrone.
Evox scolds Scrozzle, but he shows him that even if robotBlaze and robotRoxy are destroyed, they can easily get fresh bodies.
Over at the Marine Center, all the animals are saved.
This was definitely a much better episode than the “premiere.” While the trash spill stuff was pretty heavy handed, it was awesome seeing Miriama Smith. And the original action sequences (especially the unmorphed stuff) were great and above average over the usual Beast Morphers fight choreo.
Is it a secret that Evox has taken over Mayor Daniels’ body? Mesogog-style? Like what’s going on there?
And it was a pretty easy way to have “evil” Blaze and Roxy continue into this half of the season with the “robot” angle. Must be fun for Colby Strong and Liana Ramirez to play completely different characters.
But it really is so weird seeing “nice” Blaze and Roxy like nothing has happened. It also kind of contradicts the Roxy and moreso the Blaze we saw in the season premiere last year. But oh well. Beast Morphers is light on plot, so that’s not a big deal.
Back to Miriama Smith though. Would’ve been great to save her for the dino team up instead. Bring back Elsa or something. That would’ve been fun.
Overall, a strong, above-average episode of Beast Morphers with particularly great action. And much better than last week.
