Toxica & Jindrax bring Mandilok back to the Nexus for the first time in 3000 years. It's confirmed that the "fake" Master Org destroyed all of the other Org Generals in their statue form, meaning Mandilok is the last. So, to help rebuild the Org Empire from scratch, he revives two OTHER Duke Orgs (since Jindrax & Toxica lack "talent"), Artilla & Helicos, whose statue forms had escaped being trashed by way of being buried under debris. Artilla is a tank Org, while Helicos is a helicopter blade Org.
Meanwhile, at a construction site in Turtle Cove, a young, brown-haired boy, attempts to steal some donuts from the lunch table. He's run off, and bumps into Cole. Seems the kid, who doesn't speak at all at first, has been pfiltering food from the site all week. Cole gets the kid off the hook, but when he asks him what his name is, the boy spots a kite hung up in a palm tree, and blurts that out as his name! Kite claims to live at the construction site, and says he doesn't have parents. Before the red vested man can question him more, the boy kicks him in the shin and runs. An explosion, and a call from Taylor, detour Cole elsewhere for now. Mandilok, what with the two mouths and all, plans to eat everything man-made in an effort to turn the place that was once the kingdom of Animaria into a wasteland for Orgs. The Wild Force Rangers encounter Mandilok, and Artilla & Helicos, and it's a very one sided encounter, with the new Dukes defeating our heroes easily, while Kite watches from the sidelines. The WFs retreat to Animarium to tend to their wounds, all stunned by this revelation that with Master Org gone, their work is far from done. Cole informs the others of Kite, and they decide to go and seek him out in an effort to help.
When Mandilok orders Artilla & Helicos to blow up some buildings, ya know, like breaking them down so the Org General can eat them, Kite stands in their way, wanting to save his home. He shin-kicks Hellicos, and runs, the Dukes giving chase. When they catch up to the kid, Cole blocks their blast from hitting Kite by leaping his Savage Cycle into the way of the bolt! Red Ranger's motorcycle is totaled in this selfless effort (and will remain that way, for good!), but Cole is spared the same fate, thanks to his teammates on their own Savage Cycles. This leads to the five Rangers facing Mandilok, who takes them down with ease, followed by Artilla & Helicos doing just about the same. So, our heroes head back to Animarium, and using a map of Turtle Cove (with lots of street names shown, none of which are any references to fans), Taylor picks a spot where new buildings are located, and devises a plan to ambush Mandilok right where he'll be eating. Lunar Wolf Ranger joins them in this plan, which goes off successfully at first. But, of course, the Rangers begin to get beaten.
Out in the construction site, Princess Shayla lures Kite out of hiding by eating her lunch out in the open. It works, though Kite, stressing territoriality, demands she leave. He apologizes, but refuses to leave his home for anything, even food. The smell of the food draws out Mandilok (what, does the spaghetti smell like concrete?!) to her location. For some reason, Merrick in unable to summon his Savage Cycle, his Lunar Wolf Crystal not responding. When Shayla informs the gang of her current Org General problem (though her necklace), LW Ranger heads off to save her, while the remaining WF Rangers take on the new Duke Orgs. With a little bit of careful planning and a lot of teamwork, our heroes destroy Artilla & Helicos. This distracts Mandilok, causing him to leave before he can finish off Lunar Wolf Ranger & Princess Shayla. So, Jindrax & Toxica are called in, and the Duchess makes the new Dukes grow. The Rangers try to summon their Wildzords, only to get no reply back from them! What's keeping them from coming to this part of the city? Kite knows, and he brings Merrick & Shayla to it. It's the ancient burial grounds of the Wildzords, specifically, where Animus fell to Master Org 3000 years ago. It's where the construction site is located, where humans are currently building new areas of the city. Their spirits are restless, and are preventing the Wildzords from being heard by the Rangers out of anger against humanity. Merrick is especially stunned when he discovers, amid the stone carvings of the Power Animals that made up Animus which have been uncovered by recent digging (which Kite has been watching over), proof that this is also where his fellow Animarian Warriors now rest. Shayla prays for the spirit of the fallen Wildzords to allow the Rangers to protect the city. The stone carvings come together into one large monument, via magic glowing, and such as she's desired is done. Soon, Isis Megazord destroys both Artilla & Helicos. Mandilok vows that this is only the beginning.
With the help of an incredibly out of place narration (added to explain the scene to all the people at home who can't follow anything with a story), the Ancient Animarian Memorial is moved out of the construction site, and placed near the lake, on the edge of the city. Respects are paid to all who had fallen 3000 years ago. And Kite? Well, he remains on the loose, but clearly knows more than he's saying.
