[Recap of "Silence Is Golden" & "The Enemy Within" (both sometimes omitted!)]
On a mysterious green planet called Tirna, a tiny anglerfish alien named Seymour is running for his life. A big ugly anglerfish monster named Jakarak is after him, Seymour is his reluctant servant. The little guy is on the run, but his angry master won't let him get far. Nearby, Andros is jetting around on his Galaxy Glider, his AMScanning search on the planet for Zordon turned up nothing. He reports his lack of findings and is about to head back to the Megaship, when he detects something close. He goes over to check it out, his readings lead him up a tree, where he surprises Seymour from his hiding place! Seymour is falling to his doom, when Andros swoops down and saves him. No time for thanking, as Jakarak attacks, wanting his servant back!
[opening credits, Galactic Rover scene restored]
Andros defends tiny orange anglerfish-like Seymour against Jakarak. Red Ranger's Astro Blaster turns up the heat, so Jakarak vows to get him later and leaves his servant to Andros. The little creature thanks Andros for saving his life, but Red Ranger has business elsewhere and departs. Before leaving he tells Seymour to run along home, but instead the little monster is left alone in the woods, with Jakarak's roaring echoing about. Later on the Megaship, TJ & Andros make preparations to refuel on Earth, to get the ship back out in space looking for Zordon & Dark Specter. Ashley heats up a Synthetronic meal, and sits down to eat, when behind her emerges from Andros jump tube, Seymour! He tracked Andy to the Megaship, scared of his master coming back after him. Ash is startled by the intruder, screams and scrambles for her Astro Blaster. Andros & TJ come to her aid, Andy recognizes his alien pal. He wants to take the little guy back home, but with fuel low it's going to be awhile before they can. For now, Seymour is a guest on the Astro Megaship. Ashley names him Seymour, because the friendly creatures stowed away to 'see more' of the universe (not to 'see more' of her butt, ya perv!). The Alien Angler begins to adapt to their language more & more, and everyone's happy to have the reluctant monster onboard. Over on the Dark Fortress, Jakarak sets up a meeting with Astronema, seeking help in finding his servant. In exchange for this, he'll be her monster of the episode, and displays his powers in front of our princess of evil. His angler antenna on his head spouts an energy beam at a Quantron, turning the robot into stone. She likes this skill, and agrees to help the baddie out. On the Megaship, Alpha works wearily while trying to feed Seymour. His appetite is growing like crazy, starting with an apple, and spreading to huge courses of synthetron-baked pies & other junk! Cassie & Andros witness the ravenous creature, as he scarfs down food, and collapses face first into a pie! They take the sick alien to the infirmary, where Alpha determines he has a bad case of indigestion. Andros is worried over his newfound friend, and hopes he'll recover soon.
Andros awakens hours later in the dark infirmary room, Seymour missing! Not missing, but just a little bigger than before, standing behind him. Talk about growth spurts, the once tiny creature is now taller than even Andy is, and the guy's still hungry. Andros deduces they're gonna need a bigger Synthetron. On Earth, Jakarak teleports down, and starts practicing his stone ray on the people on Angel Grove! Alpha rushes in to inform Andros, and is shocked to see the overgrown Seymour. Andy leaves his pet pal to his Robo-pal, heading off to join the others, as they all Morph down to Earth, and confront Jakarak as several citizens stand stone cold! The Rangers make the scene, and Ashley recognizes the similar looking tentacles on Jakarak's & Seymour's heads. Andros already knows him, and dodges the ray behind a table, which ends up like a rock. Jakarak is there to destroy the Rangers and get his measly servant back again. Carlos steps up to fight first, but his Astro Blaster can't keep up with the slippery monster, whom teleports all over, dodging & attacking. On the Megaship, Seymour is walking around eating, when he spots the Rangers onscreen in the bridge fighting his master! Knowing he's the cause of this, Seymour is distraught and runs away. On the battlefield, the Rangers barely hold their ground, and luckily remain unstoned, when Jakarak mysterious flees the fight just as he has the upperhand. Andros vows not to let the monster take away his friend to be his servant, the situation mirroring that which took away his sister. Later on when he returns to the ship, he searches for Seymour, but can't find the monster anywhere. Once on the bridge, DECA reveals Seymour has left the Megaship. The poor monster with a heart is on Earth, sitting on a bench, blaming himself for his friends getting hurt. His depression doesn't last long, before he hears Jakarak's voice surround him, and not long before the master makes himself seen! Seymour is taken by surprise, but before Jakarak can capture the alien, Red Ranger swoops in on his Galaxy Glider and rescues his fishy buddy, taking off to the skies together. Needless to say, Jakarak is not pleased to lose his servant once again.
Unmorphed Andros sits beside Seymour near a power plant on Earth, assuring him it's not his fault for the attack. Jakarak's on Astronema's side, and she has an old grudge against them. Seymour is relieved to know he didn't cause his pal any trouble, and Andros gives him a cookie to eat. The goofy creature splits it in half, and the two friends begin to eat, Andy promising he won't let anything happen to him, when Jak is back! Andros doesn't have time to eat, so he jumps up and Morphs into action. Jakarak runs and Andros follows, ready to lock horns, but Seymour is sticking around, providing dangerous distraction to Red Ranger in battle. He means no harm, only to help, but instead Seymour almost causes Andros to lose the fight, when the rest of the Power team shows up. Red Ranger takes his alien friend away from the battlefront, as his Ranger friends get beaten around and shot at by Jak, whom turns an innocent tire into flintstone fodder. Andros comes back, headbutts the monster and they roll all over the place fighting in the junk yard/ power plant/ low income housing area. Red Ranger jumps for an attack, but Jak's ray turns his boots into concrete! Seymour wanders into the place one more time, and Jakarak finally has need of his servant, shooting a ray from his Ecliptor-material tummy, Jakarak absorbs Seymour! The poor little guy's face appears on the stomach of the monster, so Andros won't let anyone Astro Blast him, for fear of hitting his pal. Ashley scans with her Lightstar helmet mode for a weakness, and all of our heroes fire Jak between the eyes! This move returns Andros feet to normal, reversing the stone ray effects everywhere, but does nothing to the two faced creature except anger him! Utilizing combined power of both monsters, Jakarak makes mince meat of the Rangers. Jakarak asks why Andros is so intent on freeing the servant, sending Red Ranger into flashbacks of his innocent alien friend. Does the gooey fish thing remind him of his sister Karone, forced into evil? Probably. Anyway, Andros encourages Seymour to fight back, instead of giving in and wanting the Rangers to forget about him. Finally, Seymour snaps out of Jak's lock. Andros keeps getting beat up by Jak, and despite repetitive beatings on himself, Seymour tries his best to save his friend, finally using his own tentacle power on Jakarak! No damage done, Jak fires back, striking the alien Seymour and killing him. No, wait, that's in Megaranger. Over here, Seymour is fine, just 'lost his balance.' The Rangers run to his aid, and Andros is angered by the endangerment of such a kind & gentle creature, so he furiously Battlizer punches the snot out of Jak. Astronema has Satellasers fired, Jak grows and the Astro Megazord rears it's old face again. Jakarak turns the Astro Megashield and it's arm into stone. Delta Megazord gets Battlizer paged and lands, Gyro Blasts Jak's tentacle off, restoring the Megazord to perfect condition. You see where I'm getting at, right? AstroDelta Megazord, flying fist thing, and filet minarak for everyone!
Dark Fortress time, Elgar cracks wise about the Rangers getting to keep Seymour after all. Ecliptor knocks him aside and wants to launch another attack immediately, but Astronema turns down his plan, having her own. They need to assemble a large number of forces. This time, her plan must, can, and will not fail! The Megaship is refueled and returns to Tirna, all of our heroes teleport down to the surface. Seymour is happy to be home, but sad to be departing his friends. They promise to always remain buddies, and Seymour rushes off after a female counterpart of himself. TJ quips "Seymour has a girlfriend?", and Cassie says somethings are universal. But in reality, TJ is mad because Judd gave a cruddy creature a woman before he got one. Or not, The Ranger smile, and secretly vow to avoid this planet at all costs.
