Episode 3 – “Day Off”

Written by David Schneider and Jill Donnellan
Japanese episode written by Yasuko Kobayashi
Additional material directed by Akihiro Noguchi and Koichi Sakamoto
Directed by Luke Robinson

Summary: Mentor- Ji gives the team a day off. Jayden stays behind while Kevin, Mia, Mike and Emily go to an amusement park called Rainbow’s End.

Jayden is attempting to master a Secret Power Disc – the Beetle Disc, by doubling his power. Ji has been Jayden’s guardian since Jayden was a child.

The evil Nighlok Dreadhead appears. The Rangers are unable to land a hit on his flexible body. When Red Ranger arrives, the five use their Spin Swords to attack together and deliver a Quintuple Slash. The attack barely gets him. Dreadhead begins to dry out, so he leaves.

Ji explains that there are Secret Disks pasted down from previous generations of Samurai. Jayden explains that most have been lost in battle, and the Beetle Disk may be the only one left.

Jayden trains all day and night to master the Beetle Disk.

Dreadhead returns to Earth and takes on the Rangers. Red Ranger uses the power of the Beetle Disk and transforms his Fire Smasher to Cannon Blast Mode. Dreadhead is destroyed by the Five-Disk Beetle Cannon, but returns giant. The Rangers form the Samurai Megazord but can’t land a hit with the katana, so Red Mega Ranger summons the Beetlezord. Dreadhead is destroyed by the Beetle Blaster Megazord.

Ji gives them another day off, and so the team returns to the amusement park, including Jayden.
