Jindrax mourns the loss of Toxica, feeling lost without his centuries-long companion. And the six Wild Force Activists continue being down on themselves for the loss of Princess Shayla, Merrick most-so, since he was her chosen protector. Onikage lures them into a quarry, with Shayla as bait. There, this ninja Duke Org creates the Shadow Rangers, out of... well, the shadows of the Wild Force Rangers. Our heroes fight their dark counterparts, who are basically blackly repainted WF Ranger helmets with cheap black suits and the same belts & Crystal Sabers as them. The Shadows are stronger, overpowering the Rangers in battle against them, one on one. Onikage reveals who he's REALLY working for, none other than Master Org himself! With a very tall horn atop his head, a real third eye in his forehead, and his grey hair considerably longer, Master Org now has taken full control of Dr. Viktor Adler's body (judging by the cold expression and the fall he took in "The Master's Last Stand", the indications are all there that this is merely Adler's corpse being controlled by the Master Org seeds!). Everyone, save for the ninja Duke Org, are stunned by MO's return. Mandilok discovers his horn is real this time, and absorbs an energy blast thrown at it. Onikage, having taken the Org General's fork-butterknife staff a few moments prior to MO's return, bows before his real master. Seems he's the master's herald, as the title of this two parter implied, and had been working for him all along. Master Org is allowed to get revenge on Mandilok for his betrayal, blasting him with one shot from his good old tri-spiked staff, destroying Mandilok explosively! Onikage prepares to finish off Jindrax, but the Master of Blades escapes, taking the Princess with him. The Wild Force Rangers flee from the Shadow Rangers. Shayla thanks Jindrax for saving her from Master Org, which he denies doing for any reason but as a bargining ploy. She knows the truth, and he's hurting over losing his best friend. Our heroes tend to their battle wounds by the river, only to be ambushed by Master Org & the Shadow Rangers. Seems when a Ranger hits their Shadow counterpart, they feel blow themselves. Jindrax is planning to bring Shayla back to MO, in an effort to be forgiven, but Onikage only wants the Princess, and duels with his fellow Duke Org. The battle's fierce, and though Shayla protects Jindrax as best she can, he falls to the mighty ninja's katana. Somehow, Jindrax survives (it's a pretty misleading scene, where he glows and explodes and falls and such, and is left for dead, then when the scene returns, Jindrax falls from the sky... clearly, something got cut). But, Onikage gives Princess Shayla over to the Master Org. Jindrax confronts them, angry over their betrayal of him & Toxica. He no longer wishes to be an Org, having no faith in their cause any longer. But, when Onikage attempts to create a Shadow Jindrax, his ninja spell is reflected back at him, by Nayzor's round mirror Jindy had been carrying around the whole episode! Onikage's shadow double attacks him, and once Red Ranger destroys the shadow, Oni himself is destroyed! And with him, go the Shadow Rangers. Master Org, with a handful of growth seeds, brings Onikage back to life gigantically, before taking off with the Princess still captive. Giant Onikage slashes open a portal to another dimension, and drags the six Rangers into a place called the Spirit World, which is rather similar to the Shadow World from PRLR (cept this is perpetually night and foggy, and lacks roaming demons). There, giant Onikage, along with giant-sized formally-dead Orgs (Tombstone Org, Tire Org, Bell Org, Ship Org, Flute Org, and the still-unnamed "Clock Org") taunts the Zord-less heroes. Shayla is placed in a prison cell in the Nexus, and finds that she can't feel the spirits of the WFs. Her tears fall upon her necklace, activiating a mystical ball of energy, which travels up to the Animarium, and is eaten by the Red Lion Wildzord! He grows at least two or three times his normal size, and with the Falcon forming the upper torso, Blue Shark & White Tiger the arms, and the Elephant as Sword & Shield, a new Wildzord combonation is formed, called Pegasus Megazord (since the way the Falcon is attached to the Deluxe sized Lion in a way that the beast makes up its entire lower half, without changing around, almost sorta like a Pegasus or maybe some kind of freaky Griffin). Anyway, it cuts its own portal to the Spirit World, destroys the Org Spirits with one strike each, and triumphs in a brief fight against Onikage! With the ninja Duke Org destroyed, the Spirit World dissolves, and our heroes are saved, without having to do anything themselves for a change, since the Wildzords fought all by themselves. Shayla is relieved, seeing this battle in her necklace.

The six WF Activists band together, vowing to never give up in their efforts to rescue Princess Shayla, who remains Master Org's prisoner.
