Octoplant ceases looking at reflection in building and turns around, and jolts at the sight that awaits her.


ZYU32.

Under reddish skystorm, Megazord slashes sword downward, leaving a visible trail.

Recycled.

ZYU32.

Octoplant gets slashed by red energy, sparks and pulses of energy are released as she falls to her knees in front of mirrored building,
zoom out as the sparkles & pulses cease, her body glowing brightly before exploding massively, showering sparks amid a large smoke cloud.


ZYU47.

Extreme close up of Rita's face, eyes widened, as she gasps a word or so with a gaping frown,
eyes rolling to the back of her head as they close and she begins to faint to our left.

Trims start to reduce her dialogue,
and cuts end to remove zoom out to Scorpina & Goldar catching her.

ZYU32.

Pan down from Megazord's head, ending with an upward shot of its bottom front as it lowers its sword completely.

Recycled. Fades to black.
