Meanwhile, at a local youth center in Angel Grove, California, we are introduced to “teenagers with attitude” Jason, Trini, Zack, Kimberly, and Billy.

The new kid in town, Tommy Oliver, has martial arts skills that rival Jason’s. This catches Rita’s eye, and she prepares her master plan to destroy the Power Rangers once and for all. She kidnaps Tommy, puts him under her spell, and by giving him a power coin, transforms him into the Evil Green Ranger. After infiltrating the Command Center and disabling Alpha and Zordon, Tommy beats the Rangers in battle, sending them to retreat back to their damaged headquarters. With the Command Center still incapacitated from the Green Ranger’s attack, and reeling from their first real defeat, Billy and Trini attempt to restore operations with Zordon to learn some answers about their mysterious foe. Meanwhile, Rita gives Tommy the Sword of Darkness, which acts as a catalyst for keeping him under her spell permanently. After he meets with Jason, Tommy teleports the Red Ranger to the Dark Dimension. Trapped, with no way out, no way of morphing, and no way of contacting his teammates, Jason faces Goldar alone. Back on Earth, the remaining Rangers face the Green Ranger again. Jason continues his struggle with Goldar in the Dark Dimension, and eventually, the Green Ranger as well. Luckily, in the nick of time, Billy locks onto his signal and teleports him to safety. But with Zordon still lost, the victory is bittersweet. To make things worse, Rita summons Scorpina, a female warrior with a nasty sting. She fights the Rangers but is recalled by Rita as she reveals her master plan for permanently ridding the Rangers of their Zords. Phase One: Lure the Rangers out by unleashing a fully-grown Goldar. Watching Goldar demolish the city via the viewing globe, the Rangers have no choice but to morph and activate Megazord–all part of Rita’s plan. A spell eclipses the sun and cuts off Megazord’s solar power reserves. Using her magic wand, Rita grows Scorpina and, soon after, the Green Ranger. The Megazord soon falls to the evil trio. The Zords separate and scatter into a fiery chasm opened by Rita. With their fighting spirit diminished, the Rangers return to the Command Center, where the true identity of the Green Ranger is revealed. Tommy is revealed to be the Green Ranger, and Jason plans to break the spell holding him under Rita’s control. Her endgame now realized, Rita brings forth the ancient Dragonzord from Angel Grove bay. It begins to rampage through the city, while the helpless Rangers watch the destruction unfold. Zordon’s transmission is finally reestablished. The Megazord is recovered and victoriously faces the Dragonzord. With the Zord incapacitated, Jason defeats Tommy in a climactic swordfight before the latter joins the Rangers, having been freed from Rita’s control.

Season 1, Episode 22: The Trouble with Shellshock

On the moon while Rita naps, Baboo and Squatt take charge by making a monster, a turtle with a stoplight on his back named Shellshock.

Season 1, Episode 23: Itsy Bitsy Spider

Trini and Billy petition to save the Forest Spirit Statue from demolition. It supposedly protects the woods from nasty bug infestations.

Zack brings his young Hip-Hop Kido class to the park to work out nearby, and all but Zack are put under a sleeping spell by Spidertron, who soon reveals himself. Alas for Zack, he has a deathly fear of bugs, especially spiders. The Rangers morph, and the eight-legged menace grows.

The island’s only inhabitant, an elf named Quagmire, appears and offers them rhyming reminders of self-confidence, but whether he is friend or foe is not immediately apparent.
