Power Rangers Beast Morphers Season 1 Summary

Season 1, Episode 1: Beasts Unleashed

Scientists tap into the Morphin Grid, providing the city of Coral Harbor with an unlimited source of clean energy called Morph-X. In order to protect it, the organization Grid Battleforce selects three teenage cadets to form a new team of Power Rangers to defend the Grid from evil. However, Coral Harbor’s Mayor, Adam Daniels, is skeptical of their idea. When the organization initiates the formation of their Ranger team, an evil sentient computer virus, Evox, corrupts the technology and incapacitates two of the cadets, creating evil Ranger avatars in their place. Mayor Daniels’ son, Devon Daniels, who trespassed into Grid Battleforce’s facilities, and laundry girl Zoey Reeves stumble across the crisis and save the last standing cadet, with all three morphing into Rangers in the midst of the battle. With their new powers, the three Rangers defeat the two avatars and Evox. Afterwards, the trio discover that the real cadets, Blaze and Roxy, are in a coma. The remaining Rangers are then drafted in as Rangers.

During their first battle against avatar Blaze and his accompanying forces, the Rangers develop serious problems due to Evox’s virus partially corrupting their powers: Devon freezes upon seeing a dog, Ravi goes on a rampage, and Zoey loses her energy. As the battle continues, Scrozzle sends a giant Gigadrone to the city, prompting Commander Shaw to deploy the Racer Zord for Devon.
