[SUMMARY!] In the Command Center, Kimberly lies unconscious on some sort of single-sized bed, arms folded on her chest, with her head supported up by a blue pillow. She's resting right in the middle of the arena of consoles, with her five teammates assembled around her, all still wearing their beach attire. Tommy crouches beside her, concernedly gazing upon her slumbering form, as Billy uses a golden device to scan her head with a trilling blue beam emitting from a glowing red light. Kim's unconscious body continues to occasionally tinge with slithering tendrils of pink energy residue. Tommy looks at up and hopefully asks, "How is she, Billy?" Billy ceases his scientifically inspecting of her medical condition, and tapping some buttons on the small hand-held device, he somberly states, "She's in a deep sleep. By losing her Power Coin, it's caused her body to get VERY weak. I'm afraid with her Power Coin missing... there's NEVER gonna be another Pink Ranger." Tommy stands up during this admission, his already worried expression grows more pained as he bites his lip and shakes his head. Alpha 5 clutches his domed head, and cries, "Ay-yi-yi-yi-YI! This can't be happening!" Billy turns to him, and walks over to offer the automaton some comfort. Tommy sighs & softly shakes his head, and looks up at the big blue noggin in the tube, lamenting, "There's GOT to be something we can do, Zordon. We CAN'T lose Kimberly... _I_ can't lose her." He glances down at her slumbering body upon saying that. Zordon immediately orders, "Alpha, I want you to begin searching the computer for an alternate energy source. We may find SOMEthing, that can match the Power Coin." Alpha nods, and replies positively, "RIGHT away, Zordon!", and starts to type away at the buttons located on the console nearest to him. Adam steps forward, and looking up at Zordon, suggests, "We ALSO need to get our Zords up and running." Rocky steps up beside him, and wonders, "But HOW are we gonna do that with Zedd in control of the Falconzord?!" Billy adds to this recap of pending misery, "And how long until he figures a way to use Ninjor's powers to charge a fleet of new Zords?" Tommy shakes his head yet again, and stresses, "We CAN'T let Zedd win this fight..." He turns and bends down beside Kim's bed, staring at her pink-energy flickering body, and finishes saying, "...Kimberly's countin' on us." Aisha touches his shoulder briefly in support, but he's far too filled with sorrow to be comforted that easily. Up on the moon, within the Lunar Palace, Lord Zedd & Rita Repulsa stand on the edge of the balcony, gazing out on the scene we just saw. In the throne room behind them, Rito & Goldar stand firmly side by side, while far in the background (where the Z-Putties used to be stored), Squatt & Baboo stand side by side as well, though they seem to be excitedly moving their bodies. Zedd comments in response to the last line spoken, "Well then, she's counting on a bunch of LOSERS, Tommy, because you and the rest of your cowering cohorts, are going to be enslaved to ME!" Rito nods, raises his fist, and adds a confident, "Yeah!" Rita gives a wicked laugh, before suddenly making a disgusted face, as she struggles to note over the odor, "I can't smell victory... already... Ugh!" Goldar gestures to his rotting-skeleton solider partner with his sword, and wonders bemusedly, "Are you SURE you're not just smelling RITO?!" Lord Zedd & Rita Repulsa turn around, with Zedd growling, and Rita grunting, "Eww! Ugh!" Rito offendedly asks, "Heyyy, waddaya mean?!", before lifting his left arm, inhaling his stinky pitt, and remarking with a mischievous chuckle, "I don't smell, I took a shower last MONTH! HAHAHA!" Goldar groans, "Dohhhhhh!" Lord Zedd demands, "QUIET, you two rejects!" as he spreads his arms, and proclaims victoriously, "Ahh. EVerything is going as planned. I have Kimberly's Power Coin, Finster is working on a way to siphon off Ninjor's power, comBINE it with the Falconzord's technology, and bring our new Zords to life. THEN all I'll need is six pilots to command them!" During this, he fiddles with the Pink Crane Ninja Coin between his steel-tipped fingers on his right hand, causing Rita to snicker sinisterly as she watches. Rito takes the role of 'typical dumb person in the audience', by dimly recognizing the similarities, "JUST like the POWER Rangers!" Zedd is astonished, as a totally overlooked option is revealed to him by his loathsome brother-in-law. He enlightenedly coos, "Yesss, of COURSE. The Power Rangers. RITO!" This causes the skeletal soldier to shield his face somewhat and flinch a bit, giving a grunt of worry. That is, until Zedd happily motions his body and admits, "Being around ME is really starting to pay OFF for you! You've DONE it AGAIN! HAHAH! Ahh, haha!" Rito relaxes and nods cockily, chuckling to Goldar, and slapping his golden buddy on the chest, prompting Goldar to confusedly ask, "Huh!? He HAS?!" Rita appears equally baffled. Lord Zedd rhetorically asks, "WHO better to pilot the new Zords but the Power Rangers themSELVES?!" Rito concurs, "YEAH!", whole Goldar merely grumbles softly with understanding. Rita quips unimpressed, "You've been hanging around my BROTHER too long, Zeddie!" He turns to his wife, and rudely states, "Think with your BRAIN instead of your MOUTH for a change!" She tenses her mouth and glares at him furiously. Zedd holds up his right hand, twiddling the fingers with the coin within, tickling at Rita's face briefly, inspiring her to shove her body against him with an angered grunt. During this, he explains enthusiastically with evil, "We'll force them to pilot our new Zords by dangling the Pink Ranger's welfare in FRONT of them. Then we'll make them destroy Angel Grove, and the WORLD... shall surrender to ME!" Rito heartily leans back with laughter, and points out impressedily, "Yeah! Yeah, I like the way you THINK, Ed! Uh-huh!" Goldar seems to agree, Rita pouts to the side in a bad mood, and Lord Zedd flexes his right arm up powerfully, while snarling successfully, "Yesssssss!" [commercials] At the Youth Center, a white punching bag beats into another white punching bag. Err, I mean, Tommy pounds his bare fists repeatedly into a big white punching bag. Yeah. That's it. Nearby, Rocky is in his red workout outfit, spreading his legs out between two chairs. Adam's doing the splits on the floor next to him, also in his Ranger-color appropriate loose-fitting attire. They exchange concerned glances at Tommy's violent and enraged behavior. Both cease their respective exercise routines and convene over at their team leader's side. Tommy continues beating severely into the punching bag, using both hands in furious succession, along with a barrage of expelled grunts. Adam & Rocky can only stare on in disbelief at his very physical release of frustration. Tommy halts his bag-beating, and between rapid breaths, hotheadedly comments aloud, "MAN. I'd just like to get my hands on Lord Zedd, just ONCE." He slams his right fist into the bag one last time, in a final display of steam-burning offing. Adam assists the bag in stopping from swinging back and forth aimlessly, while trying to calm his friend down, by assuring, "Hey, take it easy, man. Kimberly's gonna be okay." Rocky, arms folded, adds, "Yeah, Zordon's looking for a way to help her, right now." With an arm around the bag and his sweaty head rested nearly against it, Tommy catches his breath, and remarks empathetically, "Aw... Man. I know what she's going through. You know, when Zedd took away my powers? Man. I thought it was the end of EVERYthing." Adam optimistically points out, "But it WASN'T. You bounced back, Tommy! Kimberly will too." Rocky nods softly in agreement. Tommy sighs, shakes his head, and contemplates, "I'd just like to find out how Zedd managed to steal her Power Coin." Almost on cue, during his comment, Katherine enters the gym area of the YC (wearing grey shorts, shirt, a denim vest jacket and her hair in braided pigtails), and approaches the trio, cheerfully greeting, "Hi, guys!" Unable to return her enthusiasm due to current depressing events, only Rocky is able to muster up a pleasant reply of, "Hey, Kat!" Glancing around, Kat ponders with faux curiosity, "Has anyone seen Kimberly? I was supposed to meet her for lunch." The three teens are at a lose to explain her absence, but Adam manages an excuse of, "Uhh... I think she's busy right now." Kat smirks slightly, and says with disappointment, "Guess I'll be eating alone, then." She hopefully asks, "Unless any of YOU are free? Tommy?", leading to her gazing dotingly at the guy in white. Too down about his girlfriend's current unconscious condition, Tommy declines politely, "Sorry, Kat. Not today." Kat rebounds well, saying, "Maybe next time.", wishing to the group with a smile, "Hope Kimberly shows up!", as she heads back off the way she came. Rocky & Adam exchange looks, both equally uncomfortable about having to lie to people about what Kim's going through. Katherine pauses at the entryway, turns around, stares rather evilly at the teens she knows to be Power Rangers, and before she departs, her eyes flash briefly with an audible orange glow. Back in the Lunar Palace throne room, Lord Zedd peers off the balcony toward Earth. His wife, Rita Repulsa, walks in behind him, asking with serious trepidation in her scratchy voice, "Oh-kay, Zeddie! Just HOW are you going to USE the Pink Ranger's condition, to force those rainbow-colored rejects to be our OWN personal fighter pilots?" Zedd turns around, "PATIENCE, my little walnut. Just sit back, and be awestruck, as you watch my ingenious plan unfold!" Rita reacts with grit-teeth and low grumbles. Zedd paces a bit, "Those Power Rangers won't know what hit them! Let the games continue, with the Incisorator!" ( in closed captions and overseas airings, that last line is replaced with, "Let's sink our teeth into it! Behold... Fangenstein!") That's enough in-depthness. Here's the rest of the ep in capsule form: Kim, still weak, stays behind while the other Rangers fight Incisorator. But Kat is suddenly attacked by Tengas, forcing Kimberly to take action. She's unaware this is a ploy by Rita & Zedd to drain her to the point of exhaustion, causing Pink Ranger to pass out. Goldar scoops her up, and she's ransomed off to the Rangers. The ultimatium? Pilot his new Shogunzords, or watch helplessly as Kimberly's life force is slowly and completely drained by one of Zedd's machines!
