Recap: Power Rangers Beast Morphers (Season 2) Special – Making Bad
Scrozzle has modified the Reanimizer to allow the reanimated clones of past season villains to come back stronger than before with the use of diamonds. To decide who to bring back, Scrozzle pops in some Power Rangers DVDs to watch old episodes.
First up, he presents Koragg from Mystic Force. But Roxy reminds them Koragg turned good and she proceeds to show them awesome clips from an actual good season.
Over at Riptide, the current Rangers watch the Breaking News talking about an invisible diamond thief (in reality, Scrozzle’s new Robtron Thieftron). Ravi correctly wonders if Evox is behind this, but Nate thinks that’s an absolutely absurd idea and completely out of the question. Ravi proceeds to lay out even more correct analysis which convinces Devon and they, along with Zoey, head to the next possible jewelry store.
Back in the Crystal Dimension, Roxy proposes they resurrect Astronema. Scrozzle pops in an In Space episode. But Blaze points out that Astronema not only turned good, she became the Pink Ranger.
Scrozzle then panders to the MMPR-only crowd by suggesting Lord Zedd. But Roxy says he’ll just stab Evox in the back.
Meanwhile, Ravi, Devon and Zoey spot the Robotron and chase after it. Devon is able to retrieve the stolen diamonds. The Rangers morph and quickly destroy Thieftron.
Back at GBHQ, Nate begrudgingly admits he was wrong and Ravi was right. Steel says Ravi would make a great detective.
While Poisandra and Curio take over with the next diamond heist, Blaze suggests they resurrect Psycho Red. After watching more In Space and Lost Galaxy episodes, they decide that’s not a good idea either.
Scrozzle has sent a Gigadrone and Nate and Steel go take it on while the others wait at the diamond center. Poisandra and Curio arrive and hurry inside the warehouse where they are met by Ravi, Zoey and Devon.
Fury and Wrench appear and the four of them battle the Rangers. Nate and Steel arrive and together they destroy the Dino Charge clones.
Back at the Crystal Dimenson, Scrozzle, Blaze and Roxy try to comfort Sledge. But Evox has finally made a choice as to who to resurrect: Goldar.
For the ultimate MMPR-only fan pandering, Scrozzle cues up a Mighty Morphin clip before they reanimate a souped-up Goldar.
After Goldar destroys Sledge, he and Evox make preparations for the dino crossover.
So it’s refreshing that the clip show isn’t a holiday episode. But it’s also very awkward to have the clips be old seasons and then have to compare them to Beast Morphers.
Take Mystic Force, for example. The clips they used (though very spoilerish for anyone who hasn’t watched lol) showed the climax of one of the season’s big stories. Imagine that! A Power Rangers season with an actual story.
Same for the Astronema clips as well. A time when Power Rangers was able to balance both the silly and the serious. Instead of just lecturing little kids using fart jokes and throwing bones to the rose-colored glasses-wearing nostalgic old fans.
Anyway! This was an above-average clip show. Which means it was pretty good considering most clip shows are horrible.
