Power Rangers Super Samurai Season 2 Summary

Season 2, Episode 1: Super Samurai

The Rangers become concerned by the extent of the Sanzu River when its water begins to seep into our world – meanwhile, Arachnitor resurfaces and uses the River’s water to prevent himself from drying out. At the Shiba House, Antonio works on the Black Box – after he completes it, he rushes to where the other Rangers are fighting Arachnitor and finally arrives, informing Jayden that he has succeeded in unlocking the Black Box. Jayden uses the Box to access Super Samurai Mode and defeat Arachnitor. Once Arachnitor assumes Mega Monster form, they use a new Black Box-powered Megazord combination of Samurai Megazord and Claw Battlezord: Claw Armor Megazord to do battle with the summoned giant Moogers, and then a new cannon: the Samurai Battle Cannon, formed by the Beetle, Swordfish, Tiger and Octozords to destroy Arachnitor.In a subplot, Bulk and Spike attempt to record the Rangers battling the Nighloks on film to learn some of their moves. But in a comical twist, they forget the SD card for the camera.

Season 2, Episode 2: Shell Game

The Rangers must defeat Armadevil, a hard-shelled Nighlok who proves to be a formidable opponent. Meanwhile, Antonio loses his Samurai Morpher without knowing, and the two wannabe Samurais (Bulk and Spike) find it themselves. The Rangers combine their attacks in a certain order to weaken Armordevil’s shell and Kevin uses the Black Box to finish him. In Mega Monster form, Armadevil’s shell is fully restored and proves difficult to break. The Rangers then repeat their first method of defeating Armadevil, but it still is ineffective. The Samurais call the Samurai Megazord and Claw Zord for the Claw Armor Megazord, then the Samurai Battle Cannon, and finally finish the battle once and for all. Afterward, the wannabe Samurais put the Morpher in the exact spot they found it. Emily and Mike show up moments later, relieved at Antonio’s safety, and return his Morpher from the ground. Antonio wonders what he missed all day.

Season 2, Episode 3: Trading Places

This episode’s Nighlok, Switchbeast, traps the spirits of Jayden, Mia, Kevin, and Antonio inside a fan (Mia), a (ballerina) music box (Kevin), a gnome (Jayden) and a yet-to-be-ate fish (Antonio – ironically, the soon-to-be-ate fish his spirit is in is the fish he was going to eat) while Emily and Mike try to defeat him to save the others. Switchbeast also traps people’s spirits at a public market in some of the items they were selling, including the wannabe samurais: Bulk and Spike into a soda can and a newspaper. Switchbeast does this to have the humans “recycle” his victims without knowing it, which will cause the misery of the people he switched to raise the Sanzu River. Emily and Mike manage to switch the Nighlok’s spirit with Mike to make him force the spirits of everyone back into their bodies – this works as even the Samurais return, but Antonio is traumatized when he escapes just as a neighborhood cat is about to eat the fish he was in. Mike goes Super Samurai and destroys Switchbeast, but with the Nighlok supersized, the Rangers must summon the power of the Claw Armor Megazord. The Rangers win and celebrate with their friends by having a barbecue. Meanwhile, Master Xandred is angered at this defeat and throws a Furry Wart out a gap – this Wart meets Dayu on a river stream as she plans to find a way to end Master Xandred’s life by casting her out and breaking her harmonium.

Season 2, Episode 4: Something Fishy

After switching bodies with a fish and almost getting eaten by a cat, Antonio is now afraid of fish. Meanwhile, at the Sanzu River, this episode’s Nighlok, Serrator, offers help to Master Xandred in his plans and reveals that he was the one who sent Switchbeast to Master Xandred. The Master is skeptical at first but when Serrator proves his loyalty to him, he is accepted. Back at the Shiba House, the team tries to help Antonio out with aversion therapy: Jayden is afraid of spiders, Mike is claustrophobic and Mia is afraid of frogs – after that attempt fails, the Gap Sensor goes off and the Rangers rush into action. Antonio stays behind and Mentor Ji shows him the LightZord, an ancient Zord that no Ranger has been able to master – he asks Antonio to see if he can unlock it. The Rangers deal with two Spitfangs before Serrator destroys them himself and personally tests the Rangers’ fighting skills. He effortlessly defeats the Rangers in battle. At the last second, Antonio arrives with the Lightzord to drive Serrator off before he enlarges Lightzord to take out the Papyrox. Later on, the Rangers ask Antonio how he got over his fear – he tells them in response and they start to laugh as it is shown that Mentor Ji had snuck up behind Antonio and stuffed sushi in his mouth, having him eat it. Bulk and Spike attempt to rescue the stray kitten from the top of a tree in a subplot but end up getting stuck there themselves.

Season 2, Episode 5: The Rescue

At the Shiba House, with Antonio having conquered his fear of fish, Emily and Mike decide to keep the stray kitten as a pet. The Rangers are surprised to see Antonio and Mentor Ji working collaboratively to store the Shark Disk (capable of defeating General Gut) with the Light Zord. Mike plays a prank on a distracted Antonio by putting dry cat food in his plate of trail mix but is caught by Mentor Ji who gives Mike a taste of his own medicine before deciding to continue working on the Disk outdoors, free of distractions. Meanwhile, at the Sanzu River, Octoroo announces the return of the powerful Nighlok Eyescar to Master Xandred who has a plan to trap the Rangers. Upon completing the Shark Disk, Antonio and Mentor Ji are kidnapped by a swarm of Moogers. With the Gap Sensor sounding, the Rangers head to investigate their disappearance. While following the trail left by Antonio’s dropped reel, the Rangers are ambushed by many Moogers. Mike figures out something within the Light Zord and unleashes it, which turns out to be the Shark Disk. This allows Jayden to access Shark Attack Mode to destroy the set of Moogers effortlessly. Eyescar eagerly awaits the Rangers’ arrival with his massive Mooger army, outnumbering the Rangers a hundred to one. Still, Jayden, having to anticipate the situation, enters the fray with the Samurai Battlewing destroying most Moogers with an aerial assault. The Rangers then move in and rescue Ji and Antonio before defeating Eyescar together. When Eyescar returns to life as a Mega Monster, the Rangers use the Shark Sword to finish him off. Back at the Shiba House, Antonio and Mentor Ji thank the rest of the team for their help and Mike attempts to try the same prank again on Antonio, only to be caught a second time by Mentor Ji.

Season 2, Episode 6: The Bullzord

Young boy Cody comes to the Shiba House with a Power Disk and orders The Rangers to break the seal on the Bullzord, the original Samurai Zord, which was sealed by the Grand Shogun 300 years ago after it ravaged the countryside. (The location of the Zord is a secret which Cody’s family has guarded). The Rangers return Cody home to his father, who insists that as per the Grand Shogun’s orders, the Bullzord is uncontrollable and must stay sealed for eternity. When neither his father nor Jayden helps him, Cody escapes his house and breaks the seal himself, unleashing the Bullzord which runs amok as feared. Meanwhile, Serrator sends Crustor to capture the Bullzord to use it in an unknown plot. Fearing for his son’s safety, Cody’s father gives Jayden the original Bull Disk as Cody had owned a fake. As the Rangers battle Crustor, Jayden manages to get Cody the Bull Disk, which tames the wild Zord, uncovering a secret message from the Grand Shogun and unlocking the powerful Shogun Mode. Jayden then has the Bullzord’s Megazord form, Bull Megazord, face off against Crustor’s Mega Monster form and uses the power of Shogun Mode to successfully bring this battle to a close.

Mike calls Kevin’s Samurizer to track down Skarf, discovering the Samurizer is in the Nighlok’s arm. Elsewhere, Dayu finds a part of Deker’s Uramasa as Serrator approaches her – he tells her where she can find Deker to serve under him in exchange for Dayu’s harmonium and Deker’s Uramasa getting fixed. Dayu and Deker enter the fray with Skarf, so Deker (who is wielding a different sword) may fight Jayden in his Super Samurai mode. However, Dayu and Deker end the fight prematurely by destroying Skarf (since Serrator mentioned that the destruction of Skarf could unlock his secondary power), giving the Rangers the chance to retrieve Kevin’s Samurizer. When the Nighlok enlarges, he gains a shield, forcing the Rangers to form the Samurai Gigazord for the first time, with Jayden using Shogun mode to break through the shield and destroy the Nighlok.

At the Sanzu River, Serrator tells the Nighlok Grinataur about his mission, to give humans an insatiable urge to eat, eat and eat until they “burst.” Grinataur manages to put the Rangers (save Emily) under the eating spell. Ji tries to help the rangers with their uncontrollable hunger and thirst to no avail. Bulk and Spike discover the Shiba House’s location from Mia’s Driver’s license and ask Mentor Ji if they can train there. Mentor Ji puts Emily in charge of training Bulk and Spike to be Samurai, which is harder than they thought. In the end, Emily destroys Grinataur on her own.

During the fight, Kevin and Mike get their hands glued together by Epoxar before Antonio shows up and drives him off. After a few attempts to cut the glue off, the Rangers realize that defeating Epoxar is the only way to separate Kevin and Mike. Though the boys attempt to prove that they can fight in light of the literal sticky situation, they are told to stay behind. While Kevin and Mike eventually get along, the others train to deflect Epoxar’s glue until the Nighlok returns to glue every person he comes across to something or each other. Following the others, Kevin and Mike watch their teammates fall into Epoxar’s trap. With Kevin following Mike, the boys transform, and they manage to slay Epoxar, negating the Nighlok’s glue. Bull Zord and Claw Zord arrive to hold back Epoxar with Light Zord’s support before they destroy him. Meanwhile, Serrator promises to fix Deker’s sword Uramasa and Dayu’s Harmonium in return for their services, and he provides them with temporary weapons.

Meanwhile, Master Xandred, Octoroo, and the Nighlok Malden test out their new Master Blaster inventions to be used on the Rangers. After warning the others via their Samuraizers, they attempt to regroup to form a plan but are ambushed by Dayu. Elsewhere, Serrator ambushes Mike and Antonio and taunts them over the fact that they’re still using swords. Deker attacks Jayden and Mia, noting that Jayden has become weaker upon relying on his teammates in battle rather than fighting solo. This distracts him and allows Deker to injure him until Mia takes him out of the battle and into safety. Meanwhile, at the Sanzu River, the Nighlok Maldan demonstrates his newly developed laser blaster weapon to Master Xandred, with Maldan’s Mooger Squad using the weapon for target practice. Still enraged by Deker’s words, Jayden runs off to fight Deker, again, with Mia in tow. They arrive at a mountain guarded by Dayu and Deker that is producing the ash infecting the village. Mia fights Dayu as Pink Ranger, as the other Rangers arrive. Just then, Maldan appears with his Mooger Blaster Squad.

At the last second, Mentor Ji arrives with the Bullzooka (a gift from Cody), and utilizing the Bullzooka, Jayden destroys Maldan and his mooger squad. When Maldan revives, the others hold him off while Jayden destroys the ash source and thus breaking Serrator’s hold on the island. Serrator then takes Dayu and Deker away, leaving a Papyrox and a pair of Spitfangs to keep the Rangers at bay.

This causes Octoroo to retreat and causes the Gap Sensor to detect his movement. Sensing her Harmonium’s presence, Dayu makes her way to Serrator’s location just as the Rangers arrive to fight him and are outmatched. Using the Harmonium as a shield, Serrator overpowers Dayu until an enraged Master Xandred arrives in the human world to annihilate both him and the Rangers, even if he is destroyed in the process from rapid dehydration. Serrator loses the Harmonium and escapes, leaving the Rangers to fight Master Xandred, who effortlessly defeats them all. Jayden in Super Mode then takes on Master Xandred, one on one but is still no match.

Bulk and Spike decide to take a break from their training to eat, and they notice the injured citizens and the Nighlok. Pestilox turns his attention to Bulk and Spike. The Nighlok fires the insects towards them, but they hide in the Photo Booth. Suddenly Spike feels the same pain, but it is merely an empty stomach.

Antonio prepares to finish off Deker to prevent him from taking part in Serrator’s plan. He controls the urge and leaves the scene. At the Shiba House, as the Rangers discuss the recent events to formulate a plan, Antonio apologizes for not taking the opportunity to defeat Deker, despite his friends telling him that he was noble for not attacking Deker when he was unable to defend himself. In the forest, Dayu follows Deker, who remembers Serrator’s words as he stumbles upon their old home’s remains. The Gap Sensor sounds, and Jayden orders the Rangers to split up to find Antonio and deal with the Gap issue. Serrator enjoys his recent victory and awaits Deker to take his place. Deker walks down the road until he runs into Antonio, who tries to reason with him, but Deker attacks him. Mike and Kevin arrive in time to protect Antonio. Chasing after Deker as he regains Uramasa from Serrator, the regrouped Rangers cannot stop him with Serrator in their way. But at the last second, Deker strikes down Serrator instead of the final marker.
