In the previous issue, realizing that with Goldar in the picture she was in over her head, Kimberly set out to get help in the form of other past Rangers. Teleporting to South America, Kimberly meets up with Zach and Trini, now working to protect the environment, and explains the situation to them. They agree to help and they all teleport back to France. Kimberly lends them both a portion of her own power, allowing all three to morph. Unfortunately, before they can rescue the townspeople, the sword that they use to share their power is stolen by Sergei in an attempt to persuade Goldar to release his sister, leaving them powerless and resulting in their capture.



This issue picks up right where the previous issue left off, with Sergei pleading with Goldar to release his sister. Unsurprisingly, Goldar double crosses him, throwing Sergei into the same cage with the Rangers. Now missing their powers, Kimberly and Trini begin to formulate an escape plan, using Kimberly's communicator to send out a hologram of the Rangers, causing Goldar's monsters to rush at them, phasing through the holograms and crashing into the cages behind them, allowing the humans to get away. Kimberly goes back to get the sword and their powers from Goldar, managing fairly easily as he is distracted by his henchman, now attempting to rebel as he realizes that Goldar isn't working for Rita. Goldar and Kimberly, now morphed, find their way into Goldar's hybrid zord, which begins to walk to the bottom of the ocean, controlled by the henchman, to drown them both. While there was a lot of running around and not a whole lot of progress in this issue, some of the character moments, such as Kimberly and her mother connecting despite her mother being a monster now, stand out.



The artwork maintains the level of quality that I've come to expect from the series. We end up seeing a bit more of the hybrid zord than we did in the previous issue, which is interesting seeing which pieces are made from which of the Power Rangers older, destroyed zords, but beyond that I have nothing new to really say.



Ultimately, despite this being an issue that was mostly dedicated to getting certain people to certain places for the continuation of the actual story in the next issue, it was still enjoyable. The character moments were great, the Rangers solutions to problems without their powers, while maybe a bit too convenient, were interesting to see as they had to use their intelligence more than usual, and seeing dissent in the monsters ranks is usually results in some at least slightly interesting interactions. Maybe not the best issue of the series so far, but still worth checking out.
