Divatox finds a treasure map! It leads them to circa 90's model vehicles, Lightning Cruiser and Storm Blaster. Vehicles that are supposed to be thousands of years old and sentient. Divatox wants them. She sends a monster to go collect them but, with his target in sight, gets tired and takes a break. This releases the vehicles and they head straight to Earth. Are we surprised? Not really.

Elgar and the monster try to get in, but the cars won't work for them! Not properly, anyway. Clearly they're looking for the Power Rangers. These are smart cars. They find TJ and Justin first and a chase ensues because TJ and Justin have no clue why the cars are chasing them. They are confused because there are no drivers, but get distracted by Elgar. He manages to kidnap Justin and TJ figures out the car is sentient. Because TJ is smart. It takes a bit of work, but he tames the car until it will drive him to where Justin is.

Meanwhile, Bulk and Skull are visible again. Instead of giving them jobs at the Juice Bar, Lt. Stone gets his cousin to give them construction jobs. They get to turn signs to direct traffic. This... is probably not going to go over well.

TJ and the sentient car flies right past them (literally flies!) and they are so stunned they fall into wet cement. I knew this wouldn't end well.

The others finally notice Justin is missing and TJ says he's looking for him. Cassie is totally impressed with the super awesome car and wants to make out in it. TJ is more worried about Justin and will explain the car thing later. They find Justin in an abandoned warehouse surrounded by Piranhatrons.

Justin manages to rescue HIMSELF, and the car too. TJ just gets the hang of the controls to his own car. Meanwhile, Divatox is mad and makes her own sentient car to give to Elgar and the monster. They go after Justin/Storm Blaster and TJ/Lighting Cruiser. A boring driving fight ensues in which the other rangers help beat the bad guys on foot. Bored now. Moving on?

Bulk and Skull end up stuck in cement. And get fired. The end.

3 fish. It wasn't really fishy, it was just REALLY boring.

This was kind of boring but it was fun seeing the red ranger actually ..around and excited. Plus this showed TJ as a great successor like last episode showed Ashley to be.

I know! TJ actually got to DO something! That bit was nice.

The cars are sentient, so that makes me slightly more interested in their pathos.

As someone who avoids babbles about makes and models of such transport like the plague, well played Turbo. I guess.
