SCENE ONE - JUICE BAR
Rocky, Billy, Kat and Aisha are sitting at a table drinking smoothies and talking to each other. Tommy and Adam walk in through the front entrance of the Youth Centre dressed in their Gi's. They pause near the doorway and look around.
Eventually they spot their friends sitting at their usual table. They wave to each other then Tommy and Adam go to the mats and begin their warm ups before they start sparring.
Rocky waves at Tommy and Adam then turns to his friends at the table.
"Check it out guys. It looks like Tommy and Adam are going to spar without us."
"I agree, Rocky." Billy adds. "What do you say we go get dressed into our Gi's and join in?"
"You have got to be a mind reader Billy. Let's go." Billy and Rocky each get up and begin to make their way to the entrance to the locker rooms.
Billy turns to Kat and Aisha. "We'll see you ladies later."
Aisha waves to them. "Have fun"
"Don't get too carried away" Kat jokes with the guys.
"Don't worry about us!! Worry about them!" Rocky shot back.
The girls laugh as they watch Billy and Rocky scamper away to the locker rooms. Down on the mat's Tommy and Adam have finished their warm ups and have started to run through a flawless Kata together.
Kat and Aisha are watching them from the table. Aisha notices Kat settle down and watch Tommy with a dreamy look in her eyes.
Aisha decides to pry into Kat's mind. "Kat?" Kat doesn't respond. She is in her own world and Aisha doesn't give up too easily. She begins to wave her hand in front of Kat's face. "Reality to Kat, reality to Kat. Come in Kat."
Kat shakes her head to clear the cobwebs. "Huh?" Kat is clearly confused, "Oh, sorry Aisha. I drifted off there for a second. What were you saying?" Kat pleads.
Aisha just laughs at her confused friend and shakes her head. Kat is still looking dreamy but Aisha knows that she has Kat's attention.
"Girl if you drooled anymore you would drown me." Aisha teases.
Kat laughs at Aisha's joke. "Sorry. My mind was..elsewhere."
Aisha decides not to let Kat off the hook just yet and presses on. "I could tell. Girl who were you daydreaming about?!" She asks with a devilish grin.
Kat blushes. "Daydreaming?!" Kat manages to stammer out. "I..I..um, I don't know what you are talking about." She manages. Aisha presses on for more. "It's Tommy isn't it." She states and watches in amazement as her friend turns an even brighter shade of red. Kat is dumbfounded.
"Girl when are you going to ask?! If you don't step in now you might just lose him altogether."
Kat looks at her hands on the table. "I know. But I can't ask him.
He's still hooked up with Kim." She replies quietly.
The girls continue their discussion. Meanwhile, Rocky and Billy have finished getting changed and head through the Youth Centre toward the workout mats where Tommy and Adam are free-sparring.
Billy approaches Tommy and Adam. "Hey Tommy, Adam."
Tommy and Adam stop what they are doing and turn around to greet their friends.
"Hey guys" Tommy greets them.
Rocky steps up to the two sparers. "Mind if we join in?"
Tommy turns to Adam, as if he is considering it. "Hmmm.. What do you think Adam? Should we let them?"
Adam looks from Tommy to Rocky and Billy then back at Tommy again. "I don't know Tommy. They might be a bit slow for us."
"Hey!! What do you mean too slow?" Rocky glares at his two friends.
"Yeah, we could take you down in no time with no problems." Billy adds.
Tommy lets out a little bit of a giggle. "We'll have to see about that."
Tommy, Adam, Billy and Rocky begin sparring each other. Tommy does a quick combination of punches and kicks. Each punch and kick finds a target on Rocky, who is having a tough time blocking and dodging.
Adam and Billy are having a tough time keeping up with each other. Billy does a combination of punches and Adam blocks each one of them.
Tommy begins to taunt Rocky. "Come on Rocky. I thought you said you weren't slow!"
Rocky is out of breath and tired. "I'm not slow!" he pants "You're just too quick!"
"Quit making up excuses!" Tommy laughs
Tommy goes at Rocky again. Rocky, who is tired, dodges Tommy and Tommy falls into the path of an incoming back-spinning heel-kick delivered by Adam. The kick hit's Tommy in the head and Tommy falls to the floor unconscious.
Billy is instantly at Tommy's side. Billy kneels down and grabs hold of Tommy's shoulders and squeezes. Rocky and Adam gather around.
Billy is worried about his friend. "Tommy?! Tommy can you hear me?" He pauses briefly "Are you alright, Tommy?"
The girls see the commotion and rush down to the boys. They are met by the sight of a motionless Tommy. Kat panics. "Billy do something!!"
Aisha comes up behind Kat and puts a hand on Kat's shoulder. "Kat calm down. Billy is doing everything he can to help Tommy."
"How is he Billy?" Rocky asks worried.
Billy doesn't take his eyes off Tommy for a second. "I'm not sure. Tommy, can you hear me?"
The Rangers pause waiting for a reply from Tommy.
"Guys, he's not answering." Billy confirms.
The Rangers begin to get extremely worried.
Adam remembers something that he learnt in a first aid course. "Billy feel his skin. He may be cold." Billy feels Tommy's arm. He jumps a bit in surprise to find that is very cold.
By now a small crowd has gathered around the Rangers.
"My god!! He's freezing!!" Billy half yelps. "Somebody get me a blanket for him!"
Adam runs off and comes back a short time later with some towels. Adam hands them to Billy. "These were the best I could do."
"Thanks Adam. They are just fine."
Billy begins to cover Tommy with the towels. He is just finishing up when he thinks he sees the slightest movement from one of Tommy's fingers.
"Tommy?" Billy asks tentatively "Guys I think he may be coming to." He turns to the others with a smile on his face.
Tommy lets out a weak moan of pain. Eventually, after some coaxing from his friends, Tommy's eyes begin to flicker slightly.
"Come on Tommy. You can do it." Adam urges his friend on.
Tommy's eyes begin to open up slowly. He looks around as his eyes re-gain their focus.
Tommy looks at his friends and tries to give them a reassuring smile. He then speaks in a weak voice "Oh man, did anyone catch the plate number of that Mack?"
The Rangers laugh and Tommy tries to get up. Billy holds him down as the crowd goes away. "Tommy, don't get up. Your body is still weak and in shock."
Adam, who feels guilty, comes over to Tommy. "Tommy, I am so sorry. I didn't mean for you to get hurt."
"Adam, it's alright. Don't worry about it. It was an accident." Tommy tries his best to reassure his shy friend. "But you got hurt!"
"It doesn't matter. That's the risk that all martial artists take when they free spar. It's solid so don't let it get you down alright."
"Alright Tommy. Whatever you say."
"That's my man. Billy do you think I can get off the floor now?" Tommy asks Billy with hope. Billy is just about to answer when Tommy's communicator beeps it's 6 tone musical.
Billy shrugs "I can't stop you now."
The Rangers laugh as they help Tommy to his feet. Tommy then leads them to their usual teleportation spot to answer Zordon's call.
Tommy brings his communicator up to his mouth and presses a button. "What is it Zordon?" The other Rangers keep a look out for anyone who may be watching.
"RANGERS, TELEPORT TO THE COMMAND CENTRE IMMEDIATELY" Zordon's voice boomed over the communicator.
"Right Zordon. We're on our way." Tommy turns to Rocky. "Rocky are we clear?"
Rocky looks around and finds the coast clear to teleport. "We're clear Tommy"
Adam is still worried about Tommy's condition. "Tommy are you sure you're up to this? I mean, are you feeling alright?"
"Don't worry about me. I'll be fine."
The Rangers glance at each other worried about Tommy. They know that he won't tell them if he is fit enough to fight. "Come on guys, you heard Zordon. Duty calls. Let's go."
The Rangers hit the Teleportation button on their communicators and disappear to the Command Centre in a flash of multi-coloured rainbow.
The Rangers teleport in and Tommy begins to sway a little. Adam, who is directly behind Tommy, gets ready to catch Tommy if he falls. The Rangers glance at each other each of them thinking the same thing.
"Tommy, are you sure you're alright?" Billy worriedly asks.
Tommy finally gets annoyed and comes close to snapping at Billy. "I'm just a bit dizzy. Quit pestering me!"
Zordon interrupts the Rangers' thoughts. "RANGERS, LORD ZEDD HAS SENT DOWN A MONSTER. TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO THE VIEWING GLOBE."
The Rangers face the Viewing Globe as Alpha brings up the picture.
"THIS IS NEUTRALIZER. HE IS LORD ZEDD'S LATEST CREATION. THE NEUTRALIZER IS AN EXTREMELY POWERFUL AND STRONG FOE. I DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HIS ABILITIES ARE AT THE MOMENT BUT I AM WILLING TO GUESS THAT, AS HIS NAME SUGGESTS, HE IS ABLE TO NEUTRALISE YOUR POWERS RENDERING YOU WEAK AND HELPLESS." Zordon's words have the Rangers worried.
Tommy is the first to speak. "Billy, do you think you could rig up a device that can shield our power suits against Neutralizers effects?"
Billy thinks for a moment. "I could try to. But I can't promise anything."
"That will have to do."
"I may have all the equipment necessary at my Lab."
"EXCELLENT. YOU MAY TAKE ALPHA WITH YOU."
The Rangers wish Billy and Alpha luck.
"Thanks guys." Billy gives his friends a weak smile. "Come on Alpha. Let's get moving." Billy and Alpha teleport out of the Command Centre together.
"RANGERS WE CANNOT WAIT FOR BILLY TO FINISH HIS DEVICE. YOU MUST GO TO THE QUARRY AND FIGHT THE NEUTRALIZER RIGHT AWAY BEFORE HE HEADS INTO THE CITY."
Tommy is about to reply when, all of a sudden, the Command Centre's alarms go off. The Rangers jump and cover their ears. Tommy rushes to the communications console and scans Angel Grove. He finds the disturbance and brings it up onto the Viewing Globe.
The Rangers all turn to the Viewing Globe to be met with the sight of a girl about their age being attacked by Zedd's Putties in the park. She is holding her own but Tommy notices the signs of fatigue are showing on the girl as the Putties greatness in number begin to wear her out. Understanding dawns on Tommy as he realises that the girl will not last much longer.
"I'm going to help her!" Tommy tells the others with determination in his voice. "The rest of you will go and hold off Neutralizer until Billy can get there with the device."
The Rangers exchange worried glances.
Aisha steps toward Tommy. "Tommy are you sure you can do it alone?"
"Shouldn't one of us come with you for some extra help?" Rocky adds
Tommy turns to look at the Rangers and the Rangers flinch away. "I am just fine. If the need arises, I will contact you" Tommy tells them in his leader voice that no one disobeys.
The Rangers give their consent. Although no one likes the idea of letting Tommy go by himself, they see no other way.
"Alright Tommy. Take care out there." Kat pleads.
"You too. Rocky you're in charge until Billy or myself get there."
"It's Morphin' Time!! White Ranger Power!!"
"Black Ranger Power!!"
"Pink Ranger Power!!"
"Yellow Ranger Power!!"
"Red Ranger Power!!"
Tommy teleports to the Park, while the rest of the Rangers teleport to the Quarry to face Neutralizer.
The White Ranger teleports into the Park. White Ranger looks around to find that the girl is totally surrounded by the Putties. He can see quite clearly that she is tiring fast.
White Ranger leaps into action. He runs toward the group then leaps into the air and executes a perfect flying sidekick. The kick finds the 'Z' on a Putty's vest and the Putty falls back knocking into a second Putty in the process. The first Putty explodes.
The girl turns around to see what had happened and finds the White Ranger standing directly behind her fighting two other Putties that had come in to attack. The Girl gasps.
"Need any help?" The White Ranger asks needlessly.
"Wow!!!! I don't believe it!! The White Ranger!!" The girl gasps out.
White Ranger hears the heavy accent in the girls' voice as she speaks. "You obviously know who I am but you seem to have me at a...SIC-IYAH!!!" He disposes of two Putties at one time. "...disadvantage. What is your name?"
The girl is still dumbfounded. "Sorry. I'm Karen. Wow! My friends back home are never going to believe this!!"
A Putty in the background has taken advantage of the pair talking and proceeds to sneak up behind Karen. White Ranger, who is always on the alert, spots the Putty.
Karen looks behind her and sees the Putty coming at her. She ducks just as the White Ranger re-acts with a hook-kick. The kick connects with the Putty on the face. The Putty is dazed and White Ranger comes in with a reverse-punch to the Putties 'Z' on the vest. Karen watches in wide-eyed wonder as the Putty explodes. More Putties suddenly appear out of no where and begin to attack. White Ranger keeps Karen behind him as he fights.
"Where are they all coming from?" "I don't know. Rita and Lord Zedd must be in a bad mood today. Can you fight?"
"Yes I can! I've been doing Karate since I was 6. I'm 17 now."
"Alright. Start defending yourself. The more we work together the faster we will defeat the Putties."
"But how do I make them explode like you did?!"
"All you need to know is to aim for the 'Z' on their Vests."
The White Ranger and Karen begin to defend themselves against the army of Putties. White Ranger decides it's time to bring Saba his enchanted sabre out to play. The Putties come off second best as White Ranger moves too quickly for the eye to see.
Karen does a reverse punch onto a putty's Z. The Putty's vest begins glow and the Putty suddenly explodes. Karen looks at her fist in dis-belief.
"Wow!!" She exclaims. "I can't believe it!! I destroyed a Putty!!"
Suddenly, without warning, Goldar appears behind Karen in a flash of fire. Karen turns around to face what she thinks is a Putty. Karen comes face to face with a big ugly gold monkey with wings. She screams. White Ranger, who is busy with 4 Putties turns to see Goldar facing Karen.
"Karen!! Quick, Run toward me!!"
"Oh no you don't puny human!" Goldar whacks Karen on the back of her head. Karen slumps to the ground unconscious Goldar picks her up. White Ranger quickly destroys the remaining Putties and charges toward Goldar. He leaps into the air, does a somersault and positions his body into a devastating flying sidekick.
"Until we meet again, White Ranger!" Goldar then teleports Karen and himself to the moon, just as White Ranger lands. "You won't get away with this Goldar!!!" White Ranger promises. He then brings his communicator up to his helmet and contacts Rocky. "Rocky come in...."
The Red, Black, Yellow and Pink Rangers teleport into the quarry and begin the search for the monster. The Rangers begin to get restless.
"I don't see this creep anywhere." Yellow Ranger reports.
"Keep looking, he's got to be here somewhere." Red Ranger commands.
The Rangers continue to look around the quarry when a fireball comes from some rocks to their left. The Rangers cop the blast full on and fall to the ground stunned.
"Where'd that come from?!!!!!" Pink Ranger quires.
The Rangers here a low growling rumble and turn to see a half tiger half Bear walking toward them. "That small thing?!" Neutralizer taunts. "That came from me." The Neutralizer laughs at the Rangers. The Rangers look at each other. Each Ranger has the same thought on his/her mind.
"Ready Rangers?!" Red Ranger begins to psych the Rangers up for battle.
"Ready!!" The Rangers chorus their eagerness to battle.
"Attack!!" Red Ranger commands.
The Rangers begin the attack. Red and Black Rangers go up first. Red Ranger leaps into the air and aims a flying side kick at the Neutralizers upper body. The Neutralizer ducks the attack and at the same time punches high and connects with the Red Ranger's white diamond on the ranger suit. Sparks fly as the Red Ranger falls to the ground injured. Black Ranger rushes to his friend's aid.
"Rocky!! Rocky, are you alright?!!"
"Yeah. I'm fine. I'm just a bit dazed. Give me a minute."
"Alright Rocky. Just relax." Adam re-assures his friend. He turns his attention to the two girls who are now fighting Neutralizer. "Aisha! Kat! Keep Neutralizer distracted for a minute.!"
The Pink and Yellow Rangers turn their attention back to the Neutralizer and the task at hand. Black Ranger contacts Billy.
"Billy, come in. Do you read me?"
Billy's voice can be heard on the communicator. "I read you, Adam. Go ahead."
"Have you completed the device yet?"
"The device has been completed, but I haven't tested it yet."
"No Time! We need you and that device on the double!"
"I'm on my way." Billy shuts off the communication link. He takes a stance. "It's Morphin Time!! Blue Ranger Power!!"
Blue Ranger teleports, with the device, to the quarry where the other Rangers are waiting. Alpha teleports back to the Command Centre. His task done.
"It's great to see you Billy. We could really use the extra help!" Black Ranger greets his blue clad friend. "This guy is tough."
"Thanks Adam. Rangers! Quick! Gather around me and I will spray you with the potion!!"
The Rangers gather around Blue Ranger. Blue Ranger sprays each Ranger with the device. Blue Ranger turns the device ready to spray himself when the Neutralizer attacks the unsuspecting crowd. "Did you miss me?!!" Neutralizer growls. He blasts Red Ranger, the other Rangers rush to help him. Neutralizer seizes the opportunity to take advantage of one of the Rangers. He grabs Blue Ranger and begins to drain his powers. The other Rangers try to rush and help their friend but Red Ranger holds them back fearing the others may share the same fate. "No guys!! Stay back!! He might get you too!!" Rocky warns.
"BILLY!!!!" Pink Ranger screams her friend's name.
"Rocky, come in. Do you read me?" White Rangers voice comes over Red Rangers communicator.
"I read you Tommy. Are you alright?" Red Ranger replies.
"I'm fine. Do you need any help there?"
"I'm on my way."
White Ranger teleports into the quarry to be greeted by utter chaos. He finds his fellow Rangers, minus the Blue Ranger, standing in a small group watching as Neutralizer drains Billy's powers away. White Ranger is horrified. He quickly snaps out of it and charges toward the Neutralizer. He leaps into the air and executes a flying double forward snap kick onto the monsters upper section. Neutralizer loses his grip on the Blue Ranger and Blue Ranger collapses to the ground weak. White Ranger turns his back on the Neutralizer to get Blue Ranger out of there. Neutralizer seizes the opportunity and zaps White Ranger with some sort of energy ray. White Ranger gasps in pain but ignores it. He picks Blue Ranger up and rushes to the other Rangers. "Get moving. We're teleporting to the Command Centre!" He barks out.
The Rangers know not to question Tommy when he is in this mood. They teleport out in a multi-coloured rainbow of light.
The Rangers teleport into the Command Centre with their helmets off.
Tommy sets Billy gently down onto the floor.
"Alpha, can you teleport in a Recuperation bed for Billy please?" Tommy inquires.
"Aye yai yai, Right away Tommy." Alpha pushes a few buttons on the main console and a recuperation bed teleports into the far right hand corner of the Command Centre. He then teleports Billy onto it.
"TOMMY, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO BILLY?" Zordon's voice booms.
A look of anger flashes across Tommy's face. "I'm not really sure Zordon." The Rangers can instantly tell that Tommy is trying to keep his voice steady. "When I arrived into the quarry I found Rocky holding the other Rangers back. I looked toward the point in which they were facing and found Billy in the clutches of the Neutralizer with a brilliant blue glow around them both. I managed to faze the Neutralizer enough to get him to lose his grip on Billy. I then picked Billy up and told the others to teleport here."
"WHAT ABOUT THE GIRL?"
Tommy lowers his head not wanting to look anyone in the eye. "I failed her. We were fighting the Putties when Goldar came in and took her. I didn't even have enough time to re-act. I was her only hope and I failed her." Tommy's voice is sad.
"TOMMY, LOSING THE GIRL IS NOT YOUR FAULT. YOU DID EVERYTHING WITHIN YOUR POWER. YOU COULD DO NO MORE."
Adam steps forward and looks up at the ancient wizard. "Zordon, What about Billy?"
"Will he be alright?" Aisha adds.
"He'd better be!" Tommy growls. "For Rocky's sake!"
Adam turns to face his leader. "Tommy? What is it? What's bothering you?"
Tommy's face darkens considerably and Adam takes an involuntary step back. Rocky flinches and the girls cringe. "I'll tell you what's bothering me!" Tommy faces Rocky with anger in his eyes and a dark look on his face. It's enough to make Rocky stumble backward and trip. He regains his balance. "Rocky! Instead of holding the Rangers back, you could've distracted the Neutralizer long enough for the others to get Billy out of there!!" Tommy's voice has turned to almost a roar.
The other Rangers sense a fight coming and brace themselves, ready to hold Tommy down if they have to.... and if they can.
"I didn't think of that at the time 'cause I was afraid the same would happen to the others." Rocky replies in his defence.
"When I put you in charge, you must automatically step into my shoes and become me. You must think fast and put your own life on the line to save the others. Have you ever seen me hold back whilst one of you gets injured?!!!" Tommy demands.
"I guess not." By now Rocky feels very small and Tommy has advanced toward him.
"That's because I throw myself in to help whoever needs my help. Billy is seriously injured at the moment because you hesitated!! If I hadn't shown up when I did, who knows how much more damage could've been caused in that drainage!! Billy could lose his powers because of you!!!" By now Tommy is screaming and the Rangers have already started to advance on Tommy, ready to pounce onto him if he loses his temper completely.
"Tommy, I'm sorry. I'm just not a fast thinker like you are..." Rocky is about to say more but Alpha interrupts him. "Aye yai yai yai yai yai yai!!!"
Aisha turns to Alpha alarmed at the tone of his voice. "Alpha! What's wrong?!"
Alpha looks up toward Zordon as if to ask him if he should tell the Rangers of his findings.
Zordon speaks first. "GO AHEAD ALPHA. THEY MUST KNOW."
Alpha turns to face the waiting Rangers. "Rangers, Billy is worse than you think. He is in..."
Suddenly the Command Centres alarm system goes off. The Rangers jump at the sudden noise.
"Zordon, What's happening?!" Tommy asks his Mentor.
"RANGERS, WE NOW KNOW WHY THE GIRL WAS TAKEN. TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO THE VIEWING GLOBE."
The Rangers turn their gaze from Zordon and face the Viewing Globe. Images of a new Ranger, dressed in a purple costume like the Rangers', flash across the Globe. The new Ranger is destroying the city.
Tommy looks on in disbelief. "That can't be Karen!"
"I'M AFRAID IT IS, TOMMY. LORD ZEDD HAS GIVEN HER THE POWERS OF PURPLE STARLIGHT. THUS CREATING THE PURPLE RANGER." Zordon informs his Rangers.
Kat turns to face Zordon. "But Zordon, aren't stars pure of goodness?"
"THEY ARE KAT. LORD ZEDD HAS PLACED A POWERFUL SPELL OF EVIL OVER KAREN. THIS SPELL MUST BE HELD IN PLACE WITH SOME KIND OF WEAPON. UNFORTUNATELY I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT WEAPON COULD BE. TOMMY, DID KAREN INDICATE HER LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE IN MARTIAL ARTS?"
Tommy shifts from one foot to the other uncomfortably. "Uh..guys, we are in major trouble." Kat walks over to Tommy. "What is it Tommy?"
"Karen has been doing Karate for 13 years now."
The Rangers let out a breath that they didn't know they were holding.
Adam is the first to speak. "Oh man! We have to be on our toes. She's better that just about all of us."
"What do you mean just about? She's better than all of us, man!" Rocky puts in.
"Not all of us Rocky." Aisha adds. "Tommy has been doing it longer. Right Tommy?"
"Yeah, right. But not by much. Only 3 years." Tommy confirms.
Adam turns to face Zordon. "Zordon, is there any way we can trace the source of the spell holding weapon?"
"WE CAN ONLY TRY. RIGHT NOW, RANGERS, YOU MUST GO OUT AND SLOW DOWN KAREN'S PROGRESS. SHE HAS MADE IT TO THE CITY AND IS TERRORISING THE PEOPLE THERE."
Tommy resumes his role of leader. "Right Zordon. Guys, Back to action!!"
The Rangers, minus Billy, morph and teleport to the city to stop Karen.
The White Ranger leads the Rangers to Karen. "Karen stop!!" White Ranger yells out in alarm. "You don't want to do this!!"
Purple Ranger turns to face the Rangers. "Oh yes I do!! Watch this Rangers!" Karen builds up a bolt of purple energy between her hands and throws it toward the Rangers.
"Guy's! roll now!!!" White Ranger commands. The bolt comes hurtling toward the Rangers. White Ranger makes sure all the Rangers are clear before he attempts to roll away. White Ranger tries to roll but is too late. The bolt hit's him front on. The White Ranger hurtles back through the air and hits a tree. He then falls to the ground and doesn't move.
"TOMMY!!!!!" The Rangers rush to White Ranger's aid. White Ranger doesn't move.
"Oh man! Guys this does not look good." Red Ranger informs his team mates.
"What are we going to do?" Pink Ranger asks.
"We need Tommy." Black Ranger adds.
White Ranger begins to moan quietly. His head then begins to sway right and left as he slowly regains consciousness.
"Tommy?" Red Ranger asks. "Guys he's waking up!! Tommy, are you alright?"
"I'm fine. Where's Karen?" White Ranger asks weakly. He begins to slowly get up and the other Rangers help him to his feet.
"I'm right here!!" Purple Ranger throws a less powerful bolt of energy toward the Rangers. All five Rangers manage to roll from it. They quickly get up and begin defending themselves against Purple Ranger.
Red and Black Rangers go up toward Purple Ranger and get in two or three punches and kicks each before Purple Ranger delivers a powerful blast to each Ranger on the mid-section. Red and Black Rangers roll away dazed. Yellow and Pink Rangers decide that it is their turn. They jump in and get one or two kicks in before getting blasted. White Ranger, who has partially recovered, gets the other Rangers behind him and goes up against Purple Ranger. He flies toward her in a flying side-kick. Purple Ranger ducks the kick and the pair go at each other. White Ranger gets Saba out and Purple Ranger gets out an unidentified sword.
"Tommy!! Be careful!" Pink Ranger warns.
"Don't worry about me Rangers." White Ranger assures his team mates as he continues to fight Purple Ranger.
White Ranger and Purple Ranger continue the long and hard battle against each other. White Ranger spots an opening in Purple Ranger's defence and gets in a quick but powerful back spinning kick to her mid-section. Purple Ranger flies back, injured. The Rangers regroup.
"Tommy are you alright?" Red Ranger inquires.
White Ranger is exhausted but doesn't let the others see that. "Yeah. I'm fine. I did notice one thing."
"What's was that?" Black Ranger asks
"She definitely got stronger when we were fighting with our swords. That's what is holding the spell in place. It's just like me."
"So now we just have to figure out how to destroy it." Pink Ranger adds excitedly.
"Yeah," White Ranger puffs. "let's report this to Zordon. We'd better get back." White Ranger is beginning to feel extremely dizzy but won't let it on to the other Rangers.
"WHAT!!!" The Rangers chorus. It's not like Tommy to back out like this.
"You heard me. We're retreating. Now let's go. No more questions or arguments." With that, White Ranger teleports to the Command Centre. The other Rangers reluctantly follow suit.
"Cowards. Until we meet again Tommy." Purple Ranger then de-morphs and teleports to the park.
The Rangers teleport in and Tommy sways just a bit. Not enough for the Rangers to notice but Zordon does.
"Tommy, what's the big idea?! Why are we back here?!" Rocky demands.
"Because I want to know what sort of sword we are up against."
"What do you mean?" Kat questions.
"When I was the evil Green Ranger I had a sword called the Sword Of Darkness to hold the spell. With it I could harness any amount of energy and use that power against the Rangers."
"TOMMY, GO WITH ALPHA AND DESCRIBE THE SWORD TO HIM. BUT FIRSTLY, ALPHA PLEASE TELEPORT TO MY PRIVATE CHAMBERS FOR A MOMENT. THERE IS A MATTER I WISH TO DISCUSS WITH YOU. TOMMY YOU GO AHEAD TO THE ANIMATION BAY."
