At a killer whale stunt show, Chad was doing
tricks with a whale as an announcer announced delightedly, "That was
As the whale Daisy swam up to greet the audience,
Chad swam to a wall to get fish from a bucket, wearing a black wetsuit,
but two men in black walked up, addressing him by name, and they would
take him to the limo nearby where Dana was
photo for the Blue Ranger
candidate showed Chad posing in diving gear at a lake.
Soon, a white helicopter with the teens inside flew out to sea, where a huge black
submarine was surfaced; Carter figured they
were going in the submarine, but Chad was nervous.
In the helicopter and afterward, Chad was out of
his wetsuit, wearing instead a plaid blue overshirt, a blue undershirt,
and jeans, which would be his normal attire.
Chad's dossier listed him as a marine specialist,
his skills list including "Scuba Diving 10."

Morphed, Chad generally performed more impressive
kicks and leg moves than his fellow Rangers
After giant Magmavore had landed downtown, Mitchell had the teens put the Rail
Rescues to work, and Carter immediately
agreed, although Chad was unsure, Kelsey
reminding Chad that none of them were; Miss Fairweather reassured Chad that the
Rail Rescues were programmed to assist
them automatically and that they'd be fine.
After the Lightspeed
Megazord had destroyed giant Magmavore, Chad congratulated Carter on the great work, but Carter congratulated all of them as a team.
As Joel joined the teens in the descending Rover after trying to ask out Miss Fairweather, Chad teasingly tossed
Joel his jacket which he'd forgotten.
Later, Chad and Carter
were interested in Joel's efforts to ask out Miss Fairweather, and he told them of a
surprise she was making for him.
Chad wished he had Joel's
touch with girls, and Joel told him it wasn't too
late - just keep an eye on him.
In the booth overlooking Transport, the teens met Mitchell Miss Fairweather following their second
encounter with the Vyprari; Joel reminded Chad to act surprised, and he nodded
After revealing the Lightspeed Cycles, Miss Fairweather noted that Joel didn't seem to like them, and Joel stomped Chad's foot to silence him about what
he'd thought the surprise would be.
McKnight relieved the teens of their
duties and an officer grasped Chad's wrist to remove his Morpher, Chad firmly grasped the officer's
hand in return, but Mitchell shook his
head, making the teens surrender the Morphers.
On a plaza bridge, the teens looked to Carter
for guidance as Chad asked him if he thought the Cyborgs were better than them; Carter didn't know.
When the teens saw a
billowing explosion behind a building downtown, the effect of another
lightning bolt, Chad and Carter agreed they
should check it out even though they weren't Rangers.
Scuba diving at the ocean floor early one
morning, Chad pet a large grouper fish and swam by the sunken remains of
what looked like an old submarine.
After emerging from the Aquabase pool, Chad rapped on the girls'
door, calling for Kelsey to wake up and meet
him in the galley.
In the Aquabase's
galley, Chad was already clothed in a black vest with a blue shirt, just
finishing his breakfast as Kelsey entered
Chad cheerfully returned his tray, having eaten
what looked like eggs and pancakes.
Taking the blender cup the chef had made, Kelsey headed to the table as Chad talked happily
about making friends with a huge grouper fish; Kelsey couldn't believe Chad got up every morning
to swim with the fish.
As Kelsey tried to drink
from the blender cup, Chad cheerfully dragged her off to teach her
At a large open shrine, Chad showed Kelsey slow tai chi moves, but she was awkward and
unsure, thinking skateboarding was more her thing.
Chad said this would help her achieve inner
peace, which she needed; she was insulted, and as he stammered about her
being adventurous and totally fearless, but sometimes overexited, she

challenged Chad to fight, but Chad pulled the aggressive Kelsey away, explaining that he didn't have to
prove himself to anyone, as he knew who he was.
put his foot on Chad's towel; after saying "excuse me" twice, Chad
yanked the towel, making Brian fall
back, and the girl egged him on, so he attacked, but Chad dodged each
attack, finally tripping him and sending him falling to his girlfriend's
At that point, the two teens were called away on their Morphers and ran off.
As the Rangers
regrouped outside after dealing with a building collapse and three
trapped victims, Chad congratulated Kelsey on
her HazRescue Four stunt.
and Batlings attacked, and as Smogger rolled off while the others
were grappled, Carter sent Chad and Kelsey after him.
Chased by Chad and Kelsey into a run-down old industrial area, Smogger rolled into a building, the
doors slamming shut behind him.
Kelsey drew her Rescue Blaster to blast him out, and Chad
tried to have her think this through, but she replied she knew what she
was doing, blasting dozens of holes into the door.
Thinking she'd gotten him, Kelsey approached, but Chad spotted the white gas
briefly emerging from the holes but being sucked back inside, shouting
it was a backdraft.
Kelsey barged in to see
the gas flowing away quickly, but a violent explosion then blew her and
A singed Chad and Kelsey
demorphed, and Chad went to Kelsey, who groaned that she was sorry for not
listening to him; she humorously asked if that was what he meant by
getting overexcited, and she then passed out.
With burns, scrapes, and a bandaged head, Kelsey slept on a hospital bed as Chad, in his
normal plaid outfit, checked on her; the doctor had earlier said Kelsey would be fine.
Outside, the four jacketed teens conversed: Chad blamed himself, but Joel said no one could stop that girl from doing
Called by Mitchell, the four teens ran out the front entrance of the hospital,
but Chad, the last one out, saw a Batling
luring him away; Carter thought it was a trap,
but Chad said he'd meet up with them.
Behind an ambulance, the Batling handed Chad a scroll from Brian challenging him to a fight now
that he had new skills under the training of Vypra.
Chad followed the messenger Batling to a desolate field near a powerline
tower where Brian was training in a
demonic black gi with Vypra, breaking boards.
Chad told Brian he'd get him out of there, but Brian shouted that he was going to fight
him, attacking on Vypra's order while Chad attempted to defend himself.
Eventually, Chad removed his jacket to do this the hard way,
fighting back against Brian.
as the rival kept attacking, Chad actually struck Brian in the face with a jump spinning
kick, following with a foot sweep.
Chad delivered a strong leaping kick, knocking Brian down; he then extended a hand to
go, and Brian almost took it
waveringly before Batlings grappled Chad.
Vypra ordered Brian to finish the job, but he was
insulted, saying it was his fight and that this wasn't right, but she
sword-butted him, telling him to destroy Chad or be destroyed.
approached and delivered a strong punch, sending a Batling flying back, and he smiled at Chad, his
eyes back to normal.
Vypra was alarmed as the
two fought Batlings together.
firmly no one would tell him what to do anymore, making Vypra drive away after telling Chad he'd regret
As Chad put on his jacket, Brian thanked him and apologized; Chad
told him now he didn't have to prove himself to anyone, and Brian smiled and shook his hand before
Chad rushed off to join the others in battle.
After helping destroy Smogger, Chad told Kelsey she was supposed to be in bed, but she
replied that he should know her better than that.
In a recreational area another day, Kelsey, healed, did some smooth, calm, tai chi
with Chad, but then excitedly bounced that she'd done it.
Kelsey told him not to
laugh, but she actually felt a lot calmer, and Chad was happy.
Kelsey and Chad noticed
Brian jogging with a team of yellow
and orange belt children, and Chad called and waved, and he happily
waved back saying it was good to see them; Kelsey was amazed that people really could change.
Kelsey said they now had
to think of something she could teach him; just then, a girl called to
watch out, and Chad sidestepped a flying tennis ball as it instead
smacked Kelsey straight in the forehead.
Chad apologized, got the ball, and met the cute
female tennis player who owned it, but he stammered and didn't know what
to say, then awkwardly returned the ball.
As the girl left, Kelsey
figured out she'd teach him how to talk to girls, and she grabbed him
away by the wrist.
When Ryan attacked the
city again after the teens had promised Mitchell they wouldn't fight his son, the
teens debated fighting Ryan: Kelsey didn't want
to, but Chad said he'd destroy the city.
In the galley, Joel and
Chad didn't like Ryan being ordered not to morph, but Dana
and Carter disagreed, as the tattoo could destroy him.
At the beach on the teens' day off, Chad and Kelsey surfed in wetsuits with Ranger-colored surfboards bearing their
Later, Chad went surfing with Ryan.
When Carter arrived to
have some fun, spraying the teens with an icy
water gun, Chad got the gun and sprayed him back playfully.
Chad and Kelsey were out
rollerblading together when they saw a black cloud billowing in the sky,
and they returned to base.
To make a place to land the Omega Crawler on the spikey asteroid below, Chad blasted lasers to clear
As the Rangers
planted explosives with the crawler, Chad wanted to get out of there
soon, as it gave him the creeps.
Chad drove the Rescue
Rover in Carter's absence.
As the four teens drove
in the Rover, Chad coyly suggested going
for a dive when they got back, and Joel objected
that the water was cold and salty, but Kelsey
As the five teens
packed their gear into the Rescue Rover
following a training session in the woods, Mr. Tamashiro, nearby, asked Chad
if he'd abandoned all of his training.
Chad was pleased to see Mr. Tamashiro, but the man
regretfully told him he'd been his best student, telling the teens Chad could have been a world-class karate
master, but instead he'd become a Power
Ranger, bitterly calling it a waste.
Chad hurtfully pointed out he had to choose his
own path, but Mr. Tamashiro,
leaving, replied he'd chosen the wrong one.
Back at the base, Kelsey
understood that Chad felt really bad, as he'd said Mr. Tamashiro had been like a
second dad to him.
Tamashiro had taught Chad everything Chad knew about martial arts,
and Chad suspected Mr.
Tamashiro had really wanted him to follow in his footsteps,
disappointing his sensei when he'd become a Ranger.
Kelsey interjected being
a Ranger was important too, but Chad
replied not to Mr. Tamashiro:
martial arts was his whole world.
Upset over Carter's use
of his blaster during their confrontation, Cyclopter challenged the Rangers to fight him without their weapons, in
hand-to-hand combat, and Chad and Dana agreed for
the team, if that was what it would take for him to leave.
Tamashiro had tossed Cyclopter down a flight of stone
steps, Chad started to introduce his friends, but Mr. Tamashiro began to walk away;
Chad then invited him to the Lightspeed
Aquabase, but as Chad mentioned the Rangers, Mr. Tamashiro replied he had no
interest in such foolishness.
Kelsey told Chad to go
follow him, but he wouldn't, so she did instead, not having much luck.
Tamashiro had a framed picture of Chad accepting a trophy from him
(or sharing it with him) with a few other students in the background.
Chad was jogging through the woods in his workout
clothes when he saw Mr.
Tamashiro fighting Cyclopter, so he rushed in but was
reassured by his sensei that it was okay.
Tamashiro explained he'd finally found a student who was truly
dedicated; Chad exclaimed he was a monster, but Mr. Tamashiro said he'd given him
his word of honor that he wouldn't use his training for evil, but Chad
insisted he wouldn't keep his word.
Chad fought Cyclopter unmorphed but was soon
defeated, and Mr. Tamashiro
congratulated the monster, proudly telling him he learned quickly; the
two then left together as Chad got up painfully.
In his room and now back in his normal clothes,
Chad tossed a shirt into his closet and ranted to Kelsey about his sensei's stubbornness, but Kelsey soon interrupted that Mr. Tamashiro was in trouble and
all Chad could think about was his pride; Chad realized she was right
and rushed out to find him.
Chad found the injured Mr. Tamashiro in the woods near
his home; the sensei was upset that he'd been such a fool.
Called by the others, Chad, having helped his
sensei sit up against a rock, said he had to go, but Mr. Tamashiro told him he'd
trained Cyclopter well, saying
Chad had forgotten his training by now.
To test him, Mr. Tamashiro had Chad fight him;
they clashed briefly, and Chad soon flipped his sensei to the ground and
helped him up.
Chad said he remembered everything he'd taught
him, and Mr. Tamashiro agreed
and told him to go.
Cyclopter claimed to be the best in the universe,
having defeated the four Rangers, but
unmorphed Chad walked up and shouted for the monster to leave them
Chad faced off with Cyclopter, and they fought
viciously hand to hand.
Chad performed amazing flips and kicks,
eventually kicking Cyclopter
back and posing in an impressive crane stance, and the four Rangers congratulated him.
Cyclopter summoned a forked staff
from orange energy, and Chad declared in tired annoyance that he just
didn't learn, morphing.
As Cyclopter fought the Rangers, Chad fought him off and summoned his
V-Lancer after telling him not to say he
hadn't warned him.
As Chad prepared to fight Cyclopter with his V-Lancer, Carter nearby
aimed his Rescue Blaster, but Chad told
him it was his fight, and the other Rangers
Holding his V-Lancer
behind him braced on his shoulders as the blade faintly glowed blue,
Chad blocked once and then swung the weapon around by the end for a
long-range slash, then spun around for a final slash with the weapon on
his shoulders again.
As giant Cyclopter pounded the Omega Megazord with shoulder butts, Chad
observed he was using the moves his sensei had taught him, so Carter concluded that was how they'd fight back,
and the Megazord flipped the monster as
In his room,
Chad looked at a karate trophy, one of numerous trophies he'd removed
from cardboard boxes full of packing material.
When asked by Joel, Chad
figured Mr. Tamashiro was still
disappointed that he'd chosen to be a Ranger.
Just then, Kelsey popped
in asking if everyone was decent, having a surprise.
Tamashiro entered and politely asked if it was too late to have a
tour of the Aquabase, and Chad was
dumbfounded until Kelsey prompted him by
Chad proudly showed the awed sensei into Rescue Ops, from which he said they could
monitor the city and make sure everyone was safe; Mr. Tamashiro told Chad he'd
chosen a very worthy path and that today the teacher had learned from
the student, and Chad bowed his head and thanked
Chad had been Mr. Tamashiro's student for many
After Chad had proudly introduced Miss Fairweather and Captain Mitchell, Mr. Tamashiro eagerly told the two
that his student Chad was now the Blue Power Ranger, and they
congratulated Chad awkwardly as he bowed.
As the four Rangers
(sans Carter) were losing to Mantevil despite Chad's use of Battle Booster strength, Chad summoned the
Rescue Bird, but as it arrived in Unilaser mode, Olympius pulled the weapon to himself with a red
ray from a horned device, Chad just barely missing as he leapt for it.
When the day
repeated, Chad summoned the Rescue Bird
just after Mantevil charged
rather than just before as he had originally.
In a holographic Western simulation in the
mountains, Chad fought Batlings and Olympius with the new Thermo Blaster, remarking to Miss Fairweather it was awesome.
In the guys' room after Miss Fairweather had raved over Clark (secretly her brother), Chad
took Joel's picture of Miss Fairweather and teasingly imitated
her saying Clark would do
anything for her, but Joel left with a bouquet
saying Clark didn't stand a
In the bushes as Clark and Miss Fairweather had a picnic in his
convertible, Joel watched with binoculars; beside
him, Chad was bored and looking up and around until Joel handed him the binoculars which were around
Fairweather ate with Clark in
the car, Chad observed that guy was smooth, and Joel thought he was going to throw up.
Dismayed, Joel dropped his
gaze and suddenly saw a sprinkler beside the car, and he had Chad come
with him to turn them on.
Braving the water, Miss Fairweather scolded Joel, and they turned off the water as Joel stammered; just then, a volley of missiles
struck the car, making an explosion which left Clark unconscious in the burning
Joel and Chad held Miss Fairweather back as she panicked.
Sharing a nod with Joel as
they were confronted by Infinitor, Chad leapt in and
fought Infinitor unmorphed as
best he could while Joel rushed in after Clark.
Chad was being beaten until Joel joined him, and they both morphed, losing until Miss Fairweather called out for them to
use code 8-6-1 for the Mega Battles.
Fairweather was alarmed that Joel thought her
brother Clark was her boyfriend,
the teens laughed, although at least Chad had
apparently thought the same.
To ambush Bird Bane during a ransom, the teens loitered in various disguises: Chad was a
fisherman at the railing with a moustache which was only half stuck to
As three rowdy guys
on a pier tossed trash into the ocean, Chad, on a blue surfboard
floating nearby, scolded the guys, but when they laughed and threw more
trash in, Chad swam on his board under the pier, then stood and
delivered a spinning heel kick which caused a thundering rumble, shaking
the pier with earthquake-like intensity and knocking the guys off into
Chad asked whether they were going to clean it
up, and the guys nervously agreed.
giggled, and Chad, seeing her, greeted her and told her his name,
apparently no longer shy toward girls.
When Kelsey called out
to Chad from shore that they had to go, the shy Marina was gone.
As Chad suited up in a full-body wetsuit, Mitchell told the teens of a broken communications cable, needing
Chad to swim out and make any necessary repairs.
When another rockslide occurred after Chad had
fixed the cable, Marina swam urgently
to the buried Chad, and his unconscious body would soon surface in the
When Chad awoke in the infirmary, he told the teens somebody had pulled him from the rocks, but
as he silently remembered glimpses of Marina's face and mermaid tail, he
remarked it was impossible.
After the teens had
left, Chad seemed to sense something and pulled the curtains open,
finding Marina swimming outside, and
he remarked, "It was you."
Chad approached slowly and put his hand to the
glass; smiling, she matched her hand to his, and he contentedly said
he'd known he hadn't imagined her.
After a lingering moment, Marina happily swam off, allowing Chad a
glimpse of her mermaid tail, although Chad seemed merely wistful rather
than startled at this point.
At sea on a jetski the next day, Chad looked
around with binoculars before returning to an industrial dock.
At that point, Marina emerged and greeted him, and he
thanked her for saving his life but realized he didn't know her name, at
which point she told him, and he said it was nice.
Chad a small ornate box as a gift, and he told her she shouldn't have
but thanked her nonetheless; he opened the box, but the pewter dolphin
inside knocked him back and formed chains around him as Vypra, Loki, and Batlings arrived.
Vypra congratulated Marina, but Marina insisted she'd been tricked.
When Vypra prepared to
strike a finishing blow to Chad, Chad bowed his head in resignation, but
Marina yanked on Vypra's foot and then swam off, but Loki and Batlings
captured her in a net.
After attaching a massive weight to her net, the
Batlings hurled her back into the water, and
she pleaded to Chad but was then pulled under, and Chad screamed for her.
Managing to press a button on his briefly present
Battle Booster, Chad broke free and
soon dove underwater with a Batling's sword
to cut Marina loose.
Eventually flying morphed from the water, Chad
scolded Vypra for using someone so innocent for
her dirty work, and he fought Batlings until
the others arrived.
After the villains had retreated, Chad was fine
but worried about Marina, not knowing
where she was.
At sunset, Chad was sitting alone on the pier
when Marina suddenly swam up smiling,
and he was pleased she'd come back.
apologized, never wanting to do anything to hurt him, and he knew, sorry
that Vypra had used her.
Chad said he'd never let Vypra hurt her again, and they could be together,
but Marina regretfully replied they
came from different worlds.
Chad had never met anyone like Marina; she told him softly she'd never
forget him either, and she slowly released his hand and swam away,
telling him he'd always be in her heart.
Joined by Kelsey, Chad
told her Marina had been the right
girl, and Kelsey consolingly put an arm around
Remembering only his civilian life after Memorase's attack, Chad explained
from his stretcher in the Aquabase that he
was supposed to be at the pool.
Hooked up to a memory restoration apparatus, Chad was
prompted to remember being approached by men in black following his
whale trick (in 801-LsTm).
As more personal memories were targeted, Chad was
prompted to remember scuba diving in the morning (808-UpCh), teaching Kelsey tai chi at the temple (808-UpCh), being taught to rollerblade by Kelsey (unseen, but within 819-QRet), and dodging Brian's attacks (808-UpCh).
Chad's aforementioned rollerblading memory
included Chad stumbling as Kelsey attempted to
teach him how to rollerblade; this would have taken place before the two
saw Queen Bansheera's dark clouds.
As Kelsey and Chad awoke
with their memories restored, Miss
Fairweather asked their Ranger colors,
and they confusedly told her.
It was Chad's idea to destroy Gatekeeper's staff to stop the monsters pursuing them in the Shadow World.
At the beach, the teens
drove up in the Rover and ran out for some
fun, but Chad was sullen and sluggish.
As Chad sat on the shore with his surfboard
nearby, Kelsey knew something was wrong when he
didn't want to surf.
Chad said the ocean reminded him of Marina, and Kelsey knew he missed her, putting a comforting
hand on his back.
As Chad later sat at the beach alone, Marina walked out of the water with
Chad was amazed, but Marina told him there was no time,
explaining that her father was King
Neptune and the demons had stolen his
trident, which was being used to
drain the water from the bay.
As Marina ran
through the woods with Chad, she was suddenly pained and weakened; Batlings briefly attacked, but Chad fended them
Lying weakened on the ground, Marina explained that mermaids could only stay out of water a short
time, sending him after the trident, and Chad ran off
After morphing on the way, Chad met the other
Rangers by the pond and dove in with no
time to explain.
Grabbing the trident after pulling himself toward
Aquafiend during their
underwater struggle, Chad emerged and tossed it to Carter.
After Aquafiend's destruction, Vypra arrived with Marina as a hostage, but Marina told Chad not to give her the trident; to help him decide, Vypra had Aquafiend enlarged, and the trident grew with him.
To save Marina, Chad summoned his Mega Battle armor and doused Vypra with a jet of water, causing her and the Batlings to retreat.
Upon demorphing, Chad carried the
unconscious Marina away to salt water
as the others summoned the Zords.
In the pool in the Aquabase's weapons lab, Marina floated unconscious, stretched
out with her mermaid tail restored, as Chad delicately poured water over
her from his cupped hand.
The teens and Miss Fairweather watched as the watery
form of King Neptune arose from the
pool to take his trident and his
Prompted to leave by Neptune, Marina looked into Chad's eyes and sank
into the water.
On the beach at sunset, Marina walked up to the lone Chad; he
was pleased, but she could only stay a few moments, wanting to thank him
for everything he'd done.
Chad wished Marina didn't have to go, and she knew.
Chad suddenly realized that just because she
couldn't stay on land didn't mean they couldn't spend time together, and
they ran into the water holding hands.
Blasted by Loki's bazooka,
the four Rangers collapsed limply but then
quickly rose in ambush, following Chad's idea, as Loki approached; this was traditionally a tactic
employed by Carter but apparently enacted by
Chad in his absence.
Chad briefly protested in concern as Carter rushed to Diabolico's aid during the demon's fight
against Olympius after Carter had prompted him to remember Bansheera's betrayal.
When Carter planned to
enter the Skull Cavern in the Mobile Armored Vehicle noting that Bansheera would never expect it, Chad agreed
that was because it was crazy, but he went despite the others' concern.
Turning to sit beside Kelsey as she was visibly nervous, Chad asked if
she was scared; she said a little, and he answered he was.
Chad bumped shoulders in a friendly gesture and
said at least they were scared together, and she smiled faintly and put
her arm around him, the two leaning their heads together.
Finding a maintenance shaft flooded with water,
Chad passed out oxygen canisters from the wall and volunteered to swim
down first to investigate despite Dana's concern.
As the Rangers, Mitchell, and Miss Fairweather watched the skull castle disintegrate downtown following
Bansheera's defeat, Kelsey smiled at Chad.
Returning his Morpher to Captain Mitchell another day, Chad
happily said he'd have a chance to get back to surfing.
Just as the teens were
parting ways, a fire truck raced by toward a dark mass of smoke on the
Carter dashed off after
patting Chad on the arm; Chad and Kelsey then
exchanged excited glances and followed.
