Episode Chronology
← PreviousNext →


  1. Zordon called the teens to the Command Center to tell them about his imminent de-ionizing, something he could have told them just as easily over the communicators. (02:09)
  2. Primator was unable to hold his illusion upon seeing his reflection in the top of Alpha's head, but Alpha's head was a dull gold color, not at all reflective. (05:56)
  3. Even though Zordon had warned the Rangers to pay attention for a communicator summons, Jason, Billy, and Zack were performing an experiment in which their ears were covered. (07:54)
  4. When Zack asked the five other helmetless Rangers in the Command Center whether anyone had a mirror, Kimberly bent over and produced a blue hand mirror (bearing the Triceratops symbol), possibly from under the control panel next to her, saying she never left home without one, then handed it to Billy. (15:00)
  5. Though the Rangers all teleported from the Command Center together, Billy, Jason, and Trini ended up in a different area of the harbor from the others and didn't know where the others had gone. (15:16)
  6. When Zedd summoned his grow bomb to throw to Earth, Goldar's head jerked in a jump-cut as the bomb appeared. (16:24)
  7. When the Thunderzords arrived after being summoned, each Dinozord was first shown transforming into its respective Thunderzord in the mountains. (16:41)
  8. The Dino Megazord was shown briefly as the Dragonzord began to tail whip Primator. (17:45)
  9. The Dino Megazord was shown briefly in place of the Thunder Megazord in the middle of an explosion as the Thunder Megazord and Dragonzord were struck by an attack. (17:59)
  10. Yellow Ranger called the Blue Ranger "Billy" in front of Dillon. (18:47)
