Episode 229 - Vanishing Act 
21st-May-2011 11:42 am
Marvel - Girl Comics
This episode begins with Bulk and Skull meeting with the godfather and lying about their resumes. Sadly, it all goes downhill from there. Science does not work like that.

IF SOMEONE WANTS TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED IN THIS EPISODE, YOU WIN SOME SORT OF PRIZE. I don't know WHAT PRIZE, but you win SOMETHING.

ETA: QR has come up with the prize! If you can explain this episode, or to the person who gives us the best explanation, you will win one PRS action figure signed by queenriley and myself. Of if you prefer, we'll write you fic.

So instead of soccer, this time we're playing basketball. Then suddenly everyone vanishes. Nico gets an extra special all by himself vanishing, because he's special to the Rangers.

At the Youth Center, Cassie and Ashley are discussing boys, and that's ridiculously adorable, and they are so BFF, and then Bulk and Skull come in dressed like pink rabbits to deliver cake, and then they vanish. Except first we see them in their underwear.

The Rangers try to go to the Power Chamber, but there are only ROCKS where the power Chamber is supposed to be. And then we see Alpha and Dimitria in the Power Chamber, except now there are ROCKS IN THE POWER CHAMBER and the Rangers are walking through consoles and through Alpha and apparently the city is intangible as well as invisible? Except the Power Chamber isn't IN Angel Grove and I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

So the Rangers go to the lake and then they get attacked by invisible Pirahnatrons, and they morph, and I hope nobody was around but invisible. Except they can see the Pirahnatrons' footprints? And they get beaten up and one of the invisible Pirahnatrons gropes Justin and that's just wrong.

So the Phantom shows up and saves them and he's very protective of Cassie and CASSIE, TJ IS RIGHT THERE. THERE IS NO CONTEST. (Shipping is serious business.)

Somehow they can see the reflection of Angel Grove and the Pirahnatrons in the lake, and there's more fighting, and they split up and it's all REALLY BORING and we spend most of our time shouting about HOW DOES THIS EVEN WORK and then they're driving around looking for the monster but only Cassie can see him and she keeps giving TJ bad directions and WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON? Were the writers HIGH? Did the fish actually materialize and just WRITE THIS?

Then Ashley decides they should use the gun function of the Turbo navigator, and then she combines her gun function with TJ's and somehow that makes Angel Grove reappear and then there's a Zord fight.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

Back at the Youth Center, Ashley is all "So you have a crush on the Phantom Ranger" and Cassie is all "I wish I knew his name" (which is totally Billy Cranston, for the record) and then Bulk and Skull come in dressed as superheroes to sing happy birthday to Cassie, except then they end up in their underwear again.

Fish: FIVE. WHAT THE HELL EVEN HAPPENED.

Seriously, if you can explain this episode, I will buy you an action figure, sign the package, get TSB to sign it, and MAIL IT TO YOU.
Or we'll write you fic.
Or something.

BECAUSE I STILL DON'T GET THIS EPISODE!

It had to have been the fish. They wrote it, directed it, edited it... they took over the whole episode.

It may be odd and confusing but I LOVE the Ashley and Cassie girl power beatdown on the monster to save the boys! We didn't get enough of that in Zeo.

The girls being awesome is SUPER GREAT. I approve of that.

So here’s my attempt to explain all this.

So one of the (many) theories about multiple dimensions of reality states that an unlimited number of similarly but different worlds run side by side never interacting.

So Dimitria, got it backwards, it’s not the city that got pulled out it’s the rangers that got pulled into one where no life took root on earth, so the lands there but no people so Zordon never came to earth and went somewhere else. So the Monster took the two dimensions then put them together then started pulling them apart slowly, that’s when everyone was disappearing it was the two places been pulled apart. The rangers to on dimension everything else to the other.

Now Cassis is different, he’s like her Animorphs’ name sake and can tell when time/space has been messed with and starts to destabilize the change returning them to their normal world. That’s why they can start seeing some bits of their home dimension.

Dimitria as an mult-dimensional being can see into other dimensions and so can Alpha because….it was part of his upgrades…
