Summary: Master Xandred and his crew learn that the power to seal Xandred in the Netherworld forever has always been in the hands of the Samurai Shiba family, headed by the Red Ranger. Xandred didn’t realize it was only the Red Ranger that sealed him away. Furious, he sends Moogers and Giant Moogers to destroy everything.

Bulk and Spike encounter the Moogers. Spike is rescued by Pink Ranger and develops a crush on her. Fighting the Rangers, Moogers suddenly fall in a trance by Master Xandred calling out and they focus on attacking only Red Ranger. The Rangers destroy the Moogers. Jayden explains that the voice was Master Xandred.

On Xandred’s Junk, Furry Warts hang down to annoy the crew by repeating their words while giggling.

Back at the Shiba house (the Rangers’ home base), Ji explains that there is a secret symbol that can create a seal, and the previous Red Ranger – Jayden’s father, used it to imprison Master Xandred, and only members of the Red Ranger Shiba family can use the seal, and now it’s up to Jayden.

Octoroo realizes that the last Red Ranger didn’t do it right and explains that Master Xandred was able to revive because the Red Ranger didn’t have enough strength to create a permanent seal, and that the current Red Ranger isn’t strong enough either. Octoroo calls for the evil Nighlok Robtish to destroy the Red Ranger.

Kevin, Mia, Mike and Emily feel they need to protect Jayden for now on, but Jayden tells them to stay focused on the battle at hand as a team. Gap Sensor sounds.

The team intercepts Robtish, who has come for Red Ranger. Jayden/Red Ranger goes after Robtish alone. The others morph to help but are attacked by Moogers. Robtish greatly weakens Red Ranger. Blue and Yellow go to protect Red but are defeated. Pink and Green destroy the remaining Moogers and join Red protecting Kevin and Emily. Robtish goes to finish them, but Deker intervenes and takes out Pink and Green. Then Red Ranger, Robtish and Deker duel. Robtish begins to dry out so he leaves. Red Ranger and Deker continue the duel, but Red Ranger is easily defeated with only one blow, so Deker leaves him to regain full strength before battling him. Deker reveals to them that he has a human form. Mike calls Ji for help to get Kevin and Emily back to the Shiba house.

Jayden secretly leaves the Shiba house to fight alone.
