Today on Power Rangers, we meet The Phantom Menace Ranger.

Justin is playing soccer with his little boyfriend Nico. He's actually pretty good, which is surprising since he only just started playing. He kicks the ball over the fence and into the woods, where Nico goes to retrieve it. He finds a spaceship and immediately gets Justin to show him. Fascinating!

Bulk and Skull are back on the force, or at least private duty security guards, and end up guarding a bank. Where Elgar is trying to steal money. And Bulk doesn't even notice. They are REALLY bad at this. We still aren't sure why Divatox needs Earth money. Coming out of the bank, Elgar is attacked by something invisible and thwarted in his robbery efforts.

TJ is smart and figures out they need to view the security camera footage to figure out who their little helper is. Cassie sees it off in the distance, but she can't describe it and nobody else saw it. Justin has a theory, but he's not going to tell. It probably has to do with the spaceship Nico showed him that should have come from Aquitar and been Billy.

Bulk and Skull are apparently weirdness magnets because as soon as they start guarding the coal mine (what the ever living fuck???), Elgar shows up. The Rangers go to help but the Phantom thing attacked Elgar first and he runs away. Cassie sees him in the sideview mirror of a truck and tries to find him. She's becoming obsessed. Oh show.

Demetria figures out he's from Eltar. Justin goes to check out the spaceship again, but doesn't tell anybody else because he promised Nico he wouldn't. Justin... SAVE THE WORLD vs break your promise to Nico? SAVE THE WORLD, SON! Nico is there camping out trying to find the alien. He brought him cookies, awww!

They get attacked by Piranhatrons and Rygog plants a detonator on the ship. Justin breaks free and all the Piranhatrons let Nico go to attack Justin, who tells him to run away. Nico doesn't have to be told twice and books it out there while everything swarms on Justin. He gets enough time to use his communicator to call for help when he's held down. Luckily the Phantom Ranger is there to save the day, get rid of the detonator, and stop his ship from exploding, all while Justin manages to morph mid-fight... which is the only interesting part of this fight scene.

Phantom rescues Nico, saves his ship yet again, and boards it to fly away home. Nico suspects the Blue Ranger is Justin (well, he looks at him suspiciously anyway) because Justin talks around him and golly, Nico is smart enough to figure out the voices. Nico tries to tell the story to other people, but everybody doubts him. Except Justin, who lets his little boyfriend feel all important.

And we end with Cassie missing the Phantom Menace Ranger. *eyeroll* (she should totally be mooning over TJ, not Mr. Invisible)

3 fish. It was... meh.

Seriously! Cassie could do so much better. :D

Yeah, I remember totally shipping TJ/Cassie hard all throughout life, so the Phantom Ranger, in my personal canon, is TJ time-traveling from the future. I have always shamelessly loved TJ/Cassie more than any other couple in PR like ever, so it warms my heart to see people who back it as hard as me.

Ooooh, I like that theory! I generally subscribe to the Phantom was secretly Billy one, but time-travelling!TJ! Yes!

(Kelsey/Nancy! Yay!!!!)

We still aren't sure why Divatox needs Earth money.

Based on last episode, I'm going to say to pay for their pizza orders.

YES. You have solved a major plot hole! *applauds!*

Man, Divatox eats a LOT of pizza.
