IT IS THE END OF TURBO! FINALLY WE HAVE REACHED THE BLESSED LAND! Er... what I mean is, uh... series finale ftw?

So the Power Chamber is under attack. TJ and the others rush out to attack the Piranhatrons before they get inside. All they need is an elf and a dwarf and the atmosphere would be complete. There is all the fighting in all the land and, for someone who doesn't actually LIKE the fighting on this show (I know, right? I watch the wrong show), this is a pretty epic battle. Even the cars get in on the fight!

The rangers are forced to retreat back into the Power Chamber. They try to seal out the piranhatrons with a security lock and blast door, but it won't hold them for long. For some reason, though, the piranhatrons retreat. Justin gets a little scared, understandably so, and he and Carlos have a bonding moment while waiting for the battle to resume. OMG YOU GUYS, THERE IS EVEN A BATTERING RAM.

So of course they get through. Straight up the wall with grappling hooks, straight through the door with the ram. This is one epic fight! I might actually enjoy the fighting if they were all like this. The rangers really ought to just teleport out of there, and Alpha even tries, but they refuse to leave. Carlos assures them no piranhatrons will get by him, Ashley, and Justin, except they totally do! Because nobody expected them to come POURING IN THROUGH THE CEILING! BEST FIGHT EVER.

The Power Chamber is in total destruction. It is AMAZING. Elgar even destroys the plasma tube so Demetria and Zordon can't come back. He then uses bombs to blow the place to smithereens... with the rangers inside. Divatox is clearly the most awesome villain ever. She is the only one to get this far in the near destruction of the rangers!

She can't seem to find the rangers in all the rubble, though, and we discover they are actually there, but hiding. Because somehow they made it through the explosion. Meanwhile, a messenger from the Sumerian Planet tells Divatox that Zordon has been captured and she is to report for evil duty. She refuses until she finds out it's for Dark Spectre and then she's all over that. Hierarchy of evil and all that.

Coast clear, the rangers come out of hiding. The suits are ripped, they're injured, they're dirty. The powers leave them and then they have a disagreement. Carlos wants to go to the Sumerian planet. Cassie and Ashley want to stay. TJ wants to go as well. Meanwhile, Alpha is looking for the black box, the box that holds the power decoder. It has secret codes. For what is unclear. Justin has an idea to get them to the Sumerian planet. He rushes to NASADA but they won't let him through the door, so he sneaks in with a car instead.

He needs to see the Commander, so he finds mission control. JUSTIN IS THE SMARTEST. He gets in through the ROOF. AND NOBODY SEES. BECAUSE HE IS AWESOME. He just makes it into the control room when guards catch him and try to haul him out. He yells about having a message from the rangers and the Commander stops them. He needs to hear this. Justin whispers something in his ear and the Commander just HANDS OVER THE SPACE SHUTTLE. Clearly Zordon set this up ahead of time.

Somehow a launch is arranged in the span of like, 5 minutes. They all rush to the shuttle, buckle up, even Alpha, and get ready to head out. Justin refuses to go, though. He wants to stay with his dad and THEY ARE ALL AWESOME FRIENDS BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTAND AND SUPPORT HIM AND WILL MISS HIM!!!!!!!!!!! So into space they go, a perfect liftoff. (I do not know what the rest of their families will be told, or if they'll finish high school ever, or what, but I don't care because it was the greatest episode)

To Be Continued Next Season with Power Rangers In Space!

4 fish. It was AMAZING but still kind of fishy.

I HAVE THEORIES ABOUT THIS.

And thus begins the freaking greatest story arc in PR history. I am MAD PSYCHED.

WHAT ARE YOUR THEORIES? I MUST HEAR THEM.
15th-Dec-2011 03:00 am (UTC)
And they are ALL great theories. :D

the only reason it's not the best series finale of all Power Rangers is In Space is even better. Epic finale.

but yeah what did they tell their families
15th-Dec-2011 03:01 am (UTC)
SUCH a good finale. Both of them. :D

Best finale ever. And no, I'm not just saying that because of all of the stuff blowing up... okay, maybe just a little. Okay, maybe a lot. But there's still only two other finales that come close (and neither of them are Countdown to Destruction).

It is a great finale. :DDDD

What are your other two choices for best finale?
15th-Dec-2011 06:50 pm (UTC)
Journey's End (aka the only finale to make me cry before the very end) and Storm Before the Calm (for the awesome fight scene).
15th-Dec-2011 07:04 pm (UTC)
Those are some awesome choices. :D

THIS is how you go into hiatus, Turbo. Geez. At least you learned from summer.

Also, as a kid this was especially awful, because there had been years of bloopers under the end credits. Years. And then, suddenly, IT IS JUST A STILL SHOT OF THE SHUTTLE.

It was traumatically effective.

Seriously. :D

My head canon about the Rangers boarding the shuttle? Justin gave just enough information about the others to the Commander to keep security from stopping them. Because there is no way, in my mind, that they could have gotten all the way to the shuttle without someone seeing them.

To me, it's either that or a much smaller scale identity reveal than in Countdown to Destruction.
