Mandilok, watching Kite stopping the tamed Wildzords (footage from last ep, appearing in a viewing portal floating in midair in the Nexus), plans to use the mysterious boy in an effort to control the Zords for himself.

Kite wakes up on the Animarium, and watches a news report on Max's old TV. Well, let's just say he gets an angry environmentalist attitude when he learns of all the stuff humans have done to the planet, such as ozone depletion and pollution. He wonders why the Rangers, who are supposed to be guardians of the Earth, aren't doing anything to stop humanity from destroying it themselves. Taylor yells at him, he runs off, and the gang ends up scouring the city for him once again. Kite ends up on a beach near a sewage runoff pipe, filled with trash and dead fish (not to mention horribly added-in stock footage). And once he wanders into an alley filled with more junk than Sanford's yard, his increasingly anti-human attitude gives way to an in for Mandilok, Jindrax & Toxica to take him to a pocket dimension called "the human wasteland", endlessly filled with garbage. Mandilok convinces the boy that Orgs merely exist because of the human's polluting ways. An Org Spirit takes the form of some of the trash, namely a computer monitor, calling himself Monitor Org (with a voice highly similar to Goldar's, for obvious reasons). He soon begins kidnapping office workers through computer screens, and an entire stadium full of people at a kid's soccer game. Our heroes are alerted to this, and morph on their way to said stadium (Danny & Max morphing lacked any music or sound effects on the initial airings of this ep, but it was later corrected). They discover hundreds of people trapped amid a static dimension inside the stadium's jumbotron, and that Kite has sided with the Orgs! Monitor Org fights against the Wild Force Rangers, and during the battle, an SUV is struck, causing it to rollover, right into Kite's location. The boy would be killed... if not for the fact he begins glowing and stops the vehicle with one hand, then throwing it aside like it was a toy. Soon, Jungle Sword & Lunar Cue in Break Mode destroy Monitor Org, freeing the people from the jumbotron at the stadium. Toxica resurrects the Org giantly, and the Wild Force Megazord is formed to fight him. Kite, mad at the Rangers for not punishing humanity for their crimes against nature, is further led to believe the WFs are forcing the Wildzords to do their bidding. Lunar Wolf Ranger tries to get the boy away from the Orgs, beating aside the Dukes. When he places his hand on Kite's shoulder to get him to listen to reason, the kid flings Merrick aside without even moving a muscle. Monitor Org is shut down for good by the Soul Cannon, but once he explodes, a remote control bug attaches itself to the Megazord. The WF Rangers are tossed out, Mandilok in full control of the main five Wildzords now. Kite, flying through the air, reveals his true form, explaining why Merrick and he feel they know each other, by turning into none other than Animus, the Lord of the Wildzords. Our heroes are stunned to discover the truth behind the amnesiac boy's true identity (though, considering Taylor already went through this type of surprise with the Bear Brothers, they shouldn't be too shocked). Animus, now in his Megazord form, refuses to help Orgs, but also refuses to help the humans, claiming both have endangered the planet. Mandilok controls the WF Megazord by remote, and has it attack Animus. It's a short battle, leading to the use of the Animarian Arrow attack, which destroys the control bug. The Orgs retreat, Animus tells the Rangers that they will no longer have any Wildzords to use to protect the Earth, and magically takes them all away, via a beam of light in the sky. On the Animarium, as the Power Animals vanish, Princess Shayla grows weaker, eventually collapsing into a coma. That narrator (aka speaker of the obvious) makes the scene clear to all you slowpokes out there, that Shayla, as protector of the Wildzords, is in a deep sleep that will last until the Wildzords return to the Animarium, if ever.
