811-FDIS

  • On what happened to be the day before the 20th birthday of the lost Ryan Mitchell, Carter agonizingly tested the Titanium Morpher, which Miss Fairweather told Captain Mitchell they shouldn't continue testing, as the circuitry was too powerful for an ordinary human.
  • At midnight, Captain Mitchell looked at a picture of himself with more hair holding young Dana, perhaps three or four, as young Ryan, perhaps five or six (wearing gray and black), did a kick toward the camera.
  • Although Dana said she'd been too young to remember very much of her big brother, she knew Ryan would have been 20 today.
  • Later, as a tech turned off the lights to the lab, Ryan apparently swam up to the Aquabase and into the pool room, as though there were free passage from the sea into the base through the pool.
  • Ryan wore a black wetsuit, having been swimming with the aid of flippers.
  • Manuevering through the Ops/Transport dome, Ryan came to the door to the captain's quarters.
  • Wish a flashlight, Ryan looked around inside, found the desk, and opened the drawer, grabbing the key as though he knew what he was looking for, if not where to find it as well.
  • With the drawer open, Ryan paused to turn over a framed picture within, finding the photo of himself and Dana as children with Mitchell.
  • Running his thumb delicately over Dana and Mitchell's faces, Ryan then glared seeing himself as a child; he would apparently end up taking the photo from the frame, although the theft of that particular item went unseen.
  • Ryan then shone his flashlight on the safe and opened it, moving things aside and taking the Titanium Morpher once he'd found it, apparently having been looking for it.
  • Ryan locked the safe, looked at the Morpher, and left.
  • As the Rangers regrouped while fighting Vypra the next morning, she announced they were about to meet their match, and Ryan, morphed as the Titanium Ranger, descended from a thundering blue energy cloud before them; how he was able to use the Titanium Morpher is unknown, given the inability of an ordinary human to endure its power.
  • When asked by morphed Dana who he was, morphed Ryan replied he was their worst nightmare.
  • Backing up as Titanium approached, the Rangers told him to stop, not wanting any trouble, but he drew his Titanium Laser and blasted them before pounding them with his bare hands.
  • Ryan laughed upon sweeping morphed Dana and then flip-kicking onto her stomach and making her groan painfully.
  • The Rangers retreated outside onto the roof, where they aimed the Unilaser at Ryan as he followed.
  • Carter told Ryan to stop right there, but he transformed his weapon into axe mode in response; Carter fired, but the axe blade absorbed the blast, and Ryan slung it back, blasting them as he laughed.
  • Watching the Rangers retreat, Ryan told them it wouldn't be over until they were all destroyed.
  • Arriving, Diabolico congratulated Ryan, saying he'd known he would be the perfect addition to their team; this seemed to imply that Ryan had been previously living apart from the demons.
  • With Ryan's new powers, Diabolico laughed that the city would soon be theirs, and Ryan agreed, very soon.
  • In the skull castle, Ryan was bowing in black clothes in the presence of the demons.
  • Diabolico told Ryan he'd mastered the powers of the Titanium Morpher, proving himself worthy of being the Titanium Ranger, and now they'd use the powers to take back their homeland.
  • Soon, morphed Ryan landed explosively downtown; curious bystanders approached until he began to roar with evil laughter.
  • Arriving in the Rover, the teens asked Ryan who he was, but he replied, "It doesn't matter anymore."
  • Joel pleadingly told Ryan they didn't want to have to hurt him, but he laughed that their powers were no match for his.
  • After they had morphed, Carter told Ryan not to make them do something they didn't want to do, but he told them to give it their best shot, pounding them easily.
  • Ryan was somewhat surprised when the Rangers summoned the new V-Lancers.
  • The Rangers fought axe-wielding Ryan, at one point surrounding him after knocking his axe away from him, but he fought all five off at once before Kelsey and Carter slashed him painfully.
  • As Ryan saw his axe nearby, Carter shouted, "Don't do it!" but as he ran, they prepared their V-Lancers to fire.
  • Ryan grabbed his Titanium Laser and aimed, at which point the Rangers fired the Spectra Blast, making a large explosion which the Rangers expected to be fatal.
  • Ryan fell amidst the flames and rubble, but he soon slammed his hand down in frustration and got up laboriously.
  • As Ryan turned, his visor was open, revealing his hazel eyes.
  • Carter ordered, "Stand down before this escalates! Don't force us to destroy you!" but Ryan nodded his visor shut and approached weakly with his blaster aimed.
  • Ordered not to fire, the Rangers left in disgust as Ryan called out for them to come back, not finished with them, but he was too pained to follow.

    812-TDis

  • Learning that Titanium Ranger was Ryan, Dana asked Mitchell how that could be, saying Ryan had been killed in that car crash, but Mitchell told her Ryan had not died, recounting the story of their crash.
  • Late one cold night during a rainstorm, Mitchell had been driving the two children home from visiting their grandmother; in the back seat, the children played with the new toys their grandmother had given them: young Ryan had a toy fire truck.
  • As Mitchell had looked back at the kids for a second, a semi cab had come around the corner, honked, and Mitchell swerved off the road into a railing on the edge of the nearby cliff; just before the car went over, Mitchell dove through the backseat and out the rear door, tumbling with his kids and managing to grab a root sticking out of the rock face, saving them from falling to their dooms.
  • Below, the car exploded against the ground far below; as Mitchell hung from the root, he held young Dana while young Ryan hung from his foot.
  • Ryan called for his dad to help, but Mitchell yelled desperately for him to hold on; Ryan said he was slipping, but Mitchell, looking around helplessly, cried out urgently for him just to hold on, but Ryan cried again he was slipping.
  • Mitchell called for someone to please help, at which point the spectral form of Diabolico had flown up from below in golden wisps.
  • Seeing Diabolico, Mitchell gasped, and Diabolico said he could help him, but Mitchell shouted for him to go away; whether he had previously known Diabolico is uncertain.
  • Continuing, Diabolico explained that if he saved the boy's life, he belonged to him; Mitchell shouted "Never!" and Diabolico vanished telling him the choice was his.
  • When Mitchell's shoe came off and Ryan plunged earthward, screaming, Mitchell cried out, "Save him!!"
  • First visible as he flew down, Diabolico turned into energy wisps, swooped down, and plucked Ryan out of the air.
  • Spectral Diabolico flew up to Mitchell and appeared, holding the unconscious but corporeal Ryan.
  • Stunned, Mitchell begged Diabolico to give him back his son, but the demon replied, "You will not see your son again until his 20th birthday. He is mine now."; as he flew down toward the earth as energy, Mitchell screamed, "Nooooo!!"
  • In the skull castle, Diabolico told Ryan his father was going to let him die, but it was he who had saved him that night, asking if he remembered, and Ryan nervously agreed, uneasy from Diabolico's touch.
  • Meanwhile, the other demons watched, Vypra sinisterly pleased.
  • Diabolico said it was his daughter Mitchell loved, while he had tossed away Ryan like trash, and it was Ryan who had suffered all these years; again, this was suggestive of Ryan living apart from the demons over the years, as Diabolico wouldn't have reminded Ryan of his suffering under his own care.
  • Ryan said with determination it was time to repay him, but Diabolico urged patience, saying he would eventually have the chance to destroy his father.
  • At sunrise the next day, morphed Ryan walked on a rooftop overlooking the city; he opened his visor and looked at the photograph from the frame which had been in Mitchell's desk.
  • Crumpling and dropping the photo, Ryan said he'd been no father to him and would regret it; he then closed his visor and dove off the building.
  • Below, Ryan walked downtown as people fled; he then pulled out his Titanium Laser and blasted directly at people, apparently shooting one guy in the chest, smashing him back against a pillar.
  • Ryan shot at another two people, knocking them down, and as he went to shoot one of the two while they were down, morphed Dana deflected the blast with her baton and had the relatively uninjured victims flee.
  • Ryan knew Pink Ranger was his sister, wanting to pay her back, and he fought her.
  • Dana protested that no brother of hers could be as evil as he was, and he agreed, unless his father had let him fall from a cliff to save his younger sister.
  • Ryan kept kicking, flipping, and hurling Dana, trying to slice her with his axe.
  • Dana insisted there was nothing Dad could have done, but Ryan retorted she was the one who had survived that night; she sighed that now it was over.
  • Ryan's remark that Dana (emphasis placed on "you" as he spoke to her) was the one who had survived seemed to imply Ryan had not.
  • As Ryan aimed his blaster at her, Dana sheathed her baton and told him, "He loved you!" reminding Ryan he'd wanted to grow up to be a fireman just like their father.
  • Ryan shouted for her to be quiet, but she urged him to remember, and he nearly did until the teens ran up, prompting Ryan to axe-butt her in the back of the head and run away.
  • Pausing to take a breath and demorph, Ryan approached the cliff where the car accident had occurred years ago.
  • As Ryan looked over the cliff, Mitchell was there, asking if he remembered; Ryan replied defensively he'd been told Mitchell hadn't cared what happened to him, letting him fall while saving Dana.
  • Mitchell tried to have Ryan think back, remembering the fire truck, then the crash, and they'd all gone over the cliff; Ryan angrily said he was lying, but Mitchell insisted he'd been trying to save them.
  • Shouting that Mitchell had only saved Dana and had let him fall, Ryan tackled Mitchell, sending them both falling over the edge until Mitchell grabbed the same root while catching Ryan's hand.
  • Dangling, Ryan remembered slipping, Mitchell telling him to hold on, Mitchell calling for someone to help, Diabolico appearing and issuing his demand, and then his fall.
  • With determination, Ryan climbed up Mitchell and grabbed onto the root as well, remembering.
  • When the root started to budge, Mitchell said it wouldn't support both of them, and he said goodbye calmly and contentedly, confusing Ryan, and he then let go.
  • To save his father, Ryan dove down after him, morphing; Ryan grabbed Mitchell and held him close as they tumbled down the bottom embankment, Ryan then demorphing while lying on the ground below.
  • The two weakly got up as the teens ran up nearby.
  • Mitchell apologized deeply to Ryan, saying he would have given his life a thousand times to save his; as Ryan started to leave, Mitchell called for him to wait, and he stopped.
  • Mitchell said he couldn't lose him again after all these years, as he was his son; upset, Ryan stopped and dropped his Morpher to the ground before running off up the hill.
  • Ryan confronted Diabolico in the skull castle.
  • Ryan was incorrectly shown wearing his Morpher at this time.
  • Diabolico told Ryan only the future mattered, as the past was gone, forgotten, but Ryan replied he remembered it all too clearly.
  • Diabolico told Ryan to stay and his future would be to follow in his footsteps, master, ruler of the Dark Kingdom, but Ryan walked away.
  • Enraged as Ryan walked away from him, Diabolico swore he would pay for this.

    813-RyDe

  • As Miss Fairweather worked in the lab, a computer voice announced an intruder alert, and she watched as Ryan rode up on the empty Rover lift.
  • When guards with batons rushed in and grappled Ryan, Miss Fairweather called them off, and Ryan walked away calmly.
  • Mitchell met Ryan outside his office and invited him in, having known he'd come back, but Ryan had come to say goodbye, not knowing who he was.
  • Mitchell objected that there was a place for him here at Lightspeed, but Ryan replied that for years, his mind had been poisoned by hate and fear, and he didn't know if there was any good left in him; he was leaving Mariner Bay to find out who he was.
  • As Ryan left, Mitchell retrieved the Titanium Morpher in a small silver case from his desk drawer and caught up with Ryan.
  • Mitchell told Ryan, "You may not know who you are, but trust me. I do. You're not evil."; somewhere inside Ryan, he said, was an ocean of goodness.
  • The day Ryan realized he was truly good, Mitchell wanted him to open the silver box; Ryan took it thoughtfully and left.
  • Dana arrived just in time to watch Ryan leaving in a lift.
  • Ryan was walking with a knapsack by a playground when a feather landed in front of him, and he picked it up happily, looking for its source.
  • Ryan's comfort with life on the road was yet another hint that he had grown up alone rather than with the demons.
  • Ryan happily watched the kids play; a young girl (Katie) playing with her brother sent a ball rolling to Ryan accidentally, and the brother (Jimmy) apologized, explaining his little sister was always tagging along and bugging him.
  • Ryan told the boy they had to stick together, saying he'd miss her despite the kid's skepticism.
  • Ryan had Jimmy give his sister the feather, and he did, pleasing Katie, making Ryan smile.
  • As Ryan walked up to a bus station, the man in front of him bought two tickets for Van Nuys, which was essentially a drive to Los Angeles/Angel Grove.
  • Ryan looked at a schedule in confusion, almost like he didn't know how to read; he gave up and sat on a bench, where an old woman reading a book was seated.
  • When asked, Ryan replied he didn't know where he was going; she winked to follow his heart and he'd go right where he was supposed to be.
  • Ryan pondered as the woman left.
  • Later, Ryan prepared to board the 6:00 bus to Van Nuys, having a ticket, when he caught sight of a news report of Lightspeed's declaration of a city-wide emergency due to exploding feathers.
  • The bus driver honked for Ryan to get on, but he left, deciding to stay as he remembered the children and the feather.
  • As the family walked across a bridge on the east side of town just before nightfall, Jimmy told his mom about the man (Ryan) giving him a feather to give to Katie; just then, Ryan ran up.
  • Sprinting for the family, Ryan dropped his bag, and his silver box rolled out.
  • Ryan grabbed the feather from Katie's bookbag and hurled it off the bridge, having them get down; after falling a bit, the feather glowed blue and exploded.
  • The mother thanked Ryan, and the kids thought of him as a hero before she had them go home; they waved as they left.
  • Standing alone on the bridge, Ryan remembered Mitchell's ocean speech and opened the silver box, which contained his glowing Titanium Morpher.
  • As Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon approached the weakened teens in a building, unmorphed Ryan leapt in kicking the monsters back, and he then morphed into the Titanium Ranger.
  • Falkar was familiar with Ryan, calling him "the traitor."
  • After Ryan had chased away Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon and then demorphed, the teens congratulated him.
  • Dana hugged Ryan and hoped he never left again, and Ryan replied he wouldn't, as this was exactly where he was supposed to be.
  • That night in the galley, Dana put a new Lightspeed jacket on Ryan, and it fit perfectly.
  • Joel told Ryan girls loved a man in uniform, although they'd loved him before he'd had a uniform, making two tech girls in the background make faces.
  • Dana told Ryan Diabolico couldn't touch him with them around; Chad welcomed him to Lightspeed, and everyone watching clapped.
  • To go to bed, Ryan said goodnight to the guys and went into a sleeping quarters of his own.
  • As Ryan slept uneasily, he dreamed of running through an area of pillars in the skull castle.
  • Standing atop a pillar, Diabolico shot energy rings from his chest to make Ryan pay the consequences for turning against him, flinging Ryan against a nearby pillar.
  • More energy rings pinned Ryan's chest against the pillar, and his shirt fell apart on fire from a beam from Diabolico's staff, which proceeded to brand a tattoo into his lower back.
  • Diabolico presented his permanent gift to Ryan, a large cobra tattoo; every time Ryan morphed, the cobra would move up his body until it reached his neck and destroyed him.
  • The other demons laughed as the cobra illustration slithered up Ryan's neck and plunged its fangs into his neck, making him startle awake.
  • Ryan opened a closet door and spotted the tattoo on his back in the mirror.

    814-CCob

  • The next morning, Mitchell showed Ryan around, giving him a tour of the labs, which made Ryan wonder who had designed it all.
  • As Mitchell mentioned Carter later taking him to the training facility, Ryan was slightly overwhelmed by all there was to learn.
  • Ryan went into his room and opened the closet door, looking again at his tattoo.
  • Finding Carter outside after putting his shirt back on, Ryan feigned cheeriness, and as Carter offered to take him to the training area, Mitchell called the Rangers to Ops.
  • As Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon attacked downtown, Mitchell, after checking if Ryan was ready, had them drive out to show the monsters what six Rangers could do.
  • Ryan morphed with the other teens to fight the monsters downtown; during the fight, he leapt onto a rooftop and blasted while fighting Demonite with Carter.
  • Beneath his suit, the tattoo began to glow orange as Ryan was agonized, and he dropped his weapon and fell off the roof.
  • Demonite leapt to finish Ryan, but Carter shot him in the back and helped, asking what had happened; the cobra burned his back again, but Ryan replied it was nothing.
  • While the Rangers chased Demonite, Falkar, and Thunderon, Ryan struggled painfully while fighting Demonite's clone.
  • Demonite's clone slashed Ryan in the back, and he collapsed.
  • Back up, Ryan fought back but was paralyzed in pain by the tattoo, and the clone slashed him back, where he demorphed on the ground.
  • The clone hurled Ryan and approached to finish him off, but the clone suddenly sparked, staggered, and exploded, his mirror card shattering.
  • After the Megazords had destroyed giant Demonite, Ryan congratulated them from below but then suddenly collapsed from tattoo pain.
  • In his quarters, Ryan was again examining his tattoo, which was still low on his back but now on the left side.
  • When Ryan answered his door, Carter checked on him, knowing about the tattoo; Ryan dismissed it as a going-away present from Diabolico, but Carter described it as seeming alive during the fight.
  • Ryan secretly revealed it was alive, explaining his fate; Carter insisted he had to tell his dad, but Ryan replied this was the first time he could do something good with his life; Mitchell entered having overheard Carter protest that the tattoo would stop him if his dad didn't.
  • After Carter had left, Mitchell had Ryan show him the tattoo; seeing it, Mitchell ordered that until they figured something out, he didn't morph, not wanting to lose Ryan again.

    815-SSun

  • The Solarzord was ready, but it was useless without a Titanium Ranger, Miss Fairweather explained as Ryan happened to hear from the hallway in passing.
  • As Ryan watched, Mitchell hoped they could function without it, and Miss Fairweather returned the gold disc to its case.
  • Sent to fight Falkar and Thunderon, the teens were confronted by Ryan in the hallway, but Mitchell shook his head, telling the Rangers to go.
  • As the Rangers battled Falkar and Thunderon, Ryan heard as Mitchell called Miss Fairweather to Ops, stat.
  • Outside Ops, Ryan listened as Miss Fairweather said the monsters were too powerful for the Supertrain alone; as they put all reserve power online, Ryan looked at his Morpher and rushed out after remembering the tattoo.
  • In the lab, Ryan secretly removed the Solarzord disc and put it into the computer, the monitor displaying, "Power Cells Activating"; Ryan then rode the corner lift up from the pool room to go to the Solarzord, morphing on the way.
  • In the cockpit as the Solarzord deployed, Ryan radioed, "Titanium Ranger to Miss Fairweather. I'm gonna need a little help here."
  • Mitchell ordered him to get back here, but Ryan replied they needed his help, and as Mitchell was silent, Miss Fairweather told Ryan to position wings for takeoff.
  • The tattoo burned Ryan with great intensity, either intermittently or steadily, as he flew the Solarzord.
  • The Rangers were a bit worried for Ryan upon seeing him, but he reassured them as the monsters attacked.
  • Increasingly agonized, Ryan proceeded to fight and destroy the two monsters, but as the Rangers congratulated him, he lay unconscious on his controls, the cobra glowing on his back.
  • Ryan later lay shirtless in an infirmary bed in the Aquabase as Miss Fairweather used a scanner on him.
  • Ryan told her the Max Solarzord was awesome, but she gently told him to get some rest, talking about the crazy stunt he'd pulled.
  • Beside him, Dana didn't know if Dad would be mad, as sometimes he could be pretty strict, and she left as she saw Mitchell's shadow approaching.
  • As Mitchell arrived, Ryan started to explain, but rather than yelling, Mitchell was very proud of him, saying he would have done the same thing; he then told Ryan to get some rest.
  • As Miss Fairweather had Ryan roll over to check his breathing, Mitchell was startled to see the cobra now in the middle of Ryan's back.

    816-CStr

  • Back in Ryan's room after speaking with Mitchell, Miss Fairweather scanned the tattoo again and then apologized, saying she'd never seen anything like it.
  • Miss Fairweather told him he should be fine, as long as he didn't morph.
  • As the teens later ran by for an alert, Ryan emerged from his quarters and asked what was going on; Joel said Diabolico was back, but Miss Fairweather told Ryan to get rest.
  • Anxiously lying on his bed and fidgeting with a slim book, Ryan got up and watched the Rangers battle Troika in a view which he pulled up on his communications monitor.
  • When the teens returned in defeat after their skirmish with Troika, Ryan found Dana in the hallway to check on her, but she happily told him to get some rest.
  • Frustrated, Ryan planned to think of a way to stop the cobra; as two techs passed, the girl proposed to the guy that they go to the desert.
  • Inspired, Ryan scaled some sort of access ladder, apparently to go to the Solarzord as he'd done with the pool room lift in 815-SSun.
  • In the desert, Ryan ran up to the palace ruins, having been told of the cobra's lair by Diabolico; he knew that if he destroyed the cobra, he would break the curse over him.
  • Ryan looked at the small fissure in the ground, then climbed down the rope which was apparently still there from the nomads from 801-OpLs.
  • As Ryan looked around, the torches in the tomb lit, startling him.
  • Ryan confronted a cobra statue in a side alcove wall, and as he reached for it, the statue blasted lasers from its eyes at the walls, the sparks blasting Ryan back.
  • The statue dissolved into sand and then rematerialized into the cobra monster.
  • As Ryan struggled to fight the cobra unmorphed, the glowing tattoo was nearly up to his neck, perhaps having moved up during his possible Solarzord voyage to the desert; he then morphed to battle the monster.
  • Grappling Ryan, the cobra told him he'd used up all his energy and time, throwing Ryan into some boxes and urns, where he demorphed painfully.
  • The cobra said now his brother cobra on Ryan's back would finish him off.
  • The cobra tattoo, slightly visible through Ryan's somewhat shredded shirt, glowed and burned him painfully; he took off his shirt and looked as the tattoo flicked its tongue near his neck.
  • The cobra monster shot green energy blasts from his snake hands to help a little, but Ryan leapt aside.
  • Ryan grabbed his discarded Titanium Laser axe with which he'd been fighting while morphed and threw it into the pillar behind the monster, making it fall and crush him, and the tattoo drifted away from Ryan's skin as orange vapor.
  • As Diabolico blasted the Lightspeed Megazord, the Solarzord flew in in robot mode blasting with its shield cannon, surprising the Rangers.
  • Mitchell was anxious, but Ryan reassured him and the Rangers that the cobra and curse were history.
  • The Solarzord flipped and flew overhead in shuttle mode, and Ryan told Carter to grab ahold of his Zord, which the Megazord did to form the Lightspeed Solarzord.
  • In the galley following Diabolico's destruction, bowls of chips and pretzels were being poured by the chef; the teens and Ryan were giddy.
  • Mitchell proposed a toast for Mariner Bay, but the alarm sounded, and they rushed out.
  • Downtown, the sky thundered as the six teens pulled up in the Rover.
  • With a purple cloudy pulse, Queen Bansheera's hazy blue face was visible in a descending blue billowing cloud; she spoke, "Hello, Rangers."
  • Ryan was surprised to see Bansheera, having thought she'd been destroyed; the teens were unfamiliar with the sight of her, so he told them her name, saying she was worse than ten Diabolicos.
  • When Bansheera mentioned her son, Carter was startled, and Ryan replied, "Impus."

    817-OlAs

  • As the teens chased the cocoon, it blasted a building above and knocking rubble down on construction workers below whom Carter sent Ryan to help while the others morphed.
  • In the villains' wake after Olympius had captured the others, unmorphed Ryan ran up to the weak Carter.
  • In Ops with Carter and Mitchell, Ryan had been too young to remember much about Olympius (reinforcing the idea that he had grown up apart from the demons); he did describe, however, a bit about Impus and the Star Power's line of ownership.
  • After Miss Fairweather's struggle with "Joel" over the entry gate controls, Carter confronted the impostor, at which point he grabbed Miss Fairweather and morphed into Olympius.
  • Olympius demanded the passkey, and as Carter handed it over, Ryan struck the villain and grabbed Miss Fairweather away, and the passkey fell to the floor; Carter then tackled Olympius into the pool, where they both vanished into the sea.

    818-FFTP

  • At the beach on the teens' day off, Ryan was buried up to his neck in sand by Dana, telling Kelsey and Chad he wished he could try the waves with them.
  • When the Rangers summoned the Rescuezords to fight Shockatron after Mitchell had emerged safely from a building explosion, Ryan remained below with his father rather than summoning the Solarzord.
  • Later, back at the beach, Ryan went surfing with Chad.

    819-QRet

  • In response to a billowing black cloud, Dana and Ryan met up in Ops as the others arrived from various outings.
  • As Miss Fairweather observed that the planets were falling into a very rare alignment which hadn't occurred in 3,000 years, Ryan said this was the day they'd been waiting for, saying when the planets aligned they'd have a ceremony to bring back Queen Bansheera.
  • As lightning bolts blasted the city, the Rangers deployed the Rescuezords for emergency rescues, but Ryan, inspecting the monitor in Ops, observed that the explosions were forming a pattern.
  • Ryan pinpointed the intersection point, realizing that had to be where the ceremony was, and Mitchell dispatched him.
  • At the parking garage, Ryan sneaked into a door and found the ceremony chamber below.
  • As Ryan spied on the ceremony, Vypra attacked Ryan from behind, beating him into submission before Batlings grappled him.
  • Ryan was being held by Batlings as Mitchell and then Kelsey tried to call him on his Morpher.
  • As the Rangers infiltrated the ceremony, Carter helped Ryan fight off his Batling captors, and Ryan morphed to help Carter against Batlings and Spellbinder.
  • As the Rangers fought giant Spellbinder in the Zords, Queen Bansheera's head appeared over the bay, and she announced her intentions to destroy the city herself.
  • Thinking to stop the energy flow at the temple as Bansheera's tidal wave loomed, Ryan leapt down from the Lightspeed Solarzord to the parking garage.
  • Struggling against the blinding energy cyclone, Ryan managed to smash the altar's crystal ball with his Titanium Laser axe, hurling him back with an enormous explosion, and the energy beam, Bansheera, the tidal wave, and the dark clouds would all vanish.
  • In the fiery basement, Olympius furiously confronted Loki and Vypra until Bansheera appeared to the villains, to their amazement.
  • Olympius could hardly believe she had survived but then asked what had happened to the rest of her body; Bansheera replied the Rangers had done this by ruining the ceremony, and Olympius planned to make them pay dearly.
  • As the villains vanished, unmorphed Ryan emerged from the rubble, having heard it all.
  • The teens rushed into the fiery basement and were pleased to find Ryan okay, returning to base together.
  • In the conference room, Ryan told them all that Bansheera might not have her whole body back, but her powers would only get stronger, and one day, no matter what they did or what weapons they used, she would destroy them all to build her palace.
  • Miss Fairweather asked if he was saying Bansheera was indestructible, but Ryan replied there had been a time when they had all been captured, so they knew it was possible.
  • Ryan announced he was going to leave, shocking them, but he explained he had to find out how to capture them again; Kelsey volunteered that they'd go with him, but he replied Mariner Bay needed them.
  • Mitchell was proud, and they shook hands, then Ryan hugged the tearful Dana, whom he assured he would be back, and he then walked out.

    826-ATRO

  • As Vypra and Loki explored the desert ruins, Ryan watched over a dune with digital binoculars, wearing a black knapsack.
  • Ryan approached and peered down after the two had done into the tomb below, but he ducked behind an urn after being hurled back by the departing Vypra, Loki, and Diabolico.
  • Ryan listened as Vypra and Loki enlisted Diabolico's help to get revenge against Olympius, and he watched as the three vanished into the sky.

    827-FrZo

  • At the tomb, Ryan climbed down the rope and then tried to call the Rangers but couldn't get through; he likely should have tried calling before going in.
  • Ryan called with the urgent news of Diabolico's release, but his signal faded.
  • Later, Ryan drew all of the heiroglyphics off the tomb walls into a lined notebook with a pen, thinking the answer to capturing Queen Bansheera had to be in the symbols.
  • Walking around once done, Ryan thought he'd copied all of them; outside, he then planned to find someone to tell him what they meant, wandering off into the desert.

    832-Sorc

  • Ryan wandered through the desert weakly and rolled down a small dune, passing out from weakness.
  • Ryan awoke in a lone tent home in the desert with a thin old man.
  • Ryan was looking for the Sorcerer of the Sands; he pulled out a slender ancient brown tome, most definitely not his notebook he'd had upon leaving the tomb, and had been told the sorcerer was the only one who could read its ancient writings.
  • In awe, the man approached, but Ryan would only show it to the sorcerer, so the man offered Ryan a glass of liquid which caused him to fall asleep.
  • In the morning, Ryan awoke and blearily searched his bag and found his tome on the table nearby.
  • Asked if he'd like another cup of tea, Ryan firmly rejected the offer, saying he needed the Sorcerer of the Sands without whom he'd never find a way to beat Queen Bansheera.
  • The man was alarmed, and a wise old voice told the Ryan not to frighten the man, and it took Ryan a moment to realize the crow had spoken.
  • Saying Ryan should know who he was by now, the crow materialized into the Sorcerer of the Sands.
  • Calling himself the Titanium Ranger, Ryan said they were trying to send Bansheera back to the ancient tomb, and the Sorcerer examined his book again.
  • The Sorcerer asked if Ryan had the key and, when he didn't know of a key, declared the Golden Key made all the difference; he explained that with it, he could read the spells easily, showing him an image of the key.
  • To see what the stones had to tell them, the Sorcerer tossed some colored gems into a gold bowl and waved his hand over them, causing them to form a shape, but they scattered when Ryan reached curiously, and the Sorcerer replied his friends were in trouble, using golden sparkles to show him in the mirror.
  • In the Shadow World, the Rangers were in a tunnel with numerous monsters on the other side of a rock barrier.
  • To help, the Sorcerer released from a chest a ball of light which the Rangers followed to safety after the Sorcerer had told them Ryan was trying to help them.
  • As the Sorcerer soon read the ancient spell from the tome, a sudden burst of fiery energy washed out from the book, reducing the Sorcerer into sand and charring the book beyond recognition.
  • Diabolico laughed from the mirror, holding the Golden Key and telling Ryan he'd failed; he then vanished, and Ryan pounded the sands angrily.

  • Not long after the Golden Key's flight into the tomb, Ryan was investigating within, wearing his pack.
  • Finding a formerly blank block, Ryan touched the new imprint of a key, and the figure turned into the real Golden Key, hovering in front of him.
  • Ryan recognized the Golden Key as the one the Sorcerer had told him about, saying it was the key that opened the tomb (presumably the tomb/coffin in the skull castle rather than the Tomb of Forever).
  • As Ryan grasped the hovering key, an image projected by the key showed an eclipse, then a horde of monsters reaching toward the ceiling of a hellish underground tomb within the Shadow World, causing Ryan to declare, "Oh no."
  • As Ryan called the Aquabase telling the others of Bansheera's plan to resurrect all the demons from the Shadow World, his signal was lost before he could say when it would happen, and Bansheera flew down into the tomb in monster form.
  • Saying no one would stop the ceremony, Bansheera wrapped her tendrils around Ryan, making him drop the Golden Key which she then picked up.
  • Batlings carried the unconscious Ryan through the skull castle and locked him up on Bansheera's orders.
  • Chained between two pillars, Ryan was guarded by Batlings in the same chamber where the skeletal Shadow World coffin dwelled.
  • When Ryan's legs buckled from weakness, a Batling guard made him stand again.
  • Finding Ryan held captive, Carter quickly beat up his two Batling guards and unlocked his chains with a dropped keyring.
  • Ryan told Carter that Bansheera would start the ceremony when the solar eclipse happened, which Carter noted was today.
  • As Carter planned for the both of them to escape and then form a plan to stop Bansheera, they heard her nearby; Ryan pretended to still be chained, and Carter hid in a nearby sarcophagus.
  • Hearing a Morpher beep from within the nearby sarcophagus after she'd landed to taunt Ryan, Bansheera noted they had a visitor, at which point Ryan sprung free and kicked her; Carter lunged out as well, kicking her aside.
  • As Batlings flooded in, Bansheera noted the two were outnumbered by a million to one, but they morphed and began fighting.
  • Overpowered, Carter and Ryan were blasted and then grappled by Batlings.
  • Queen Bansheera pointed to a flaming hologram above in which the Omega Megazord, hijacked by Jinxer, slammed a giant stone into place downtown; once the circle was complete, the ceremony could begin, at which point, Bansheera said, no one - not even the two of them - would be able to stop her.
  • That said, Bansheera shot two beams from her hand, sending both Carter and Ryan flying out of the skull castle.

  • As the eclipse began, the Omega Megazord prepared to place the sixth and final stone around the skull castle downtown, but it was interrupted by blasts from Carter and Ryan on the Red Mobile Armored Vehicle.
  • Circling around, the duo fired together multiple times, and the Omega Megazord returned fire with a cannon; they managed to dodge the blasts, although one shot nicked the Mobile Armored Vehicle.
  • As the Omega Megazord went to place the last stone, Carter decided there was only one thing they could do to stop it, and Ryan agreed.
  • Leaping at the last minute, Ryan and Carter ejected as the Red Mobile Armored Vehicle slammed into the Omega Megazord's back with a large explosion, making the torso completely explode.
  • Despite the two Rangers' efforts, however, the stone fell into place, completing the circle.
  • Upon meeting up downtown, Dana hugged Ryan, and the four teens morphed to raid the skull castle with Carter and Ryan.
  • Nearly pulled into the Shadow World pit by a hanging Bansheera, Carter shouted to close the lid, but Ryan and the others refused to close it without him.
  • Just then, Diabolico's spirit severed Bansheera's tendrils, and she and Diabolico both plunged into the Shadow World below.
  • After the Rangers had pulled Carter up with a rope, Ryan turned and removed the Golden Key, sealing the coffin's lid shut, and the skull castle then disintegrated.
  • The Golden Key was last seen in Ryan's possession as the skull castle crumbled.
  • As the Rangers, Mitchell, and Miss Fairweather watched the skull castle disintegrate, Ryan smiled at Carter.
  • Another day in the park, the five teens stood facing Ryan and Mitchell as they returned their Morphers, although Ryan kept his.
  • Dana beamed that they finally had time to be a normal family, and Ryan smiled that it sounded great to him.
  • Just as the teens were parting ways, a fire truck raced by toward a dark mass of smoke on the horizon.
  • Ryan and Dana looked to Carter, and as he dashed off followed by Chad and Kelsey, the two siblings looked at each other and followed as Dana nodded to Ryan.
