Added DiffLines:

* Why did Hayley never get in the opening of PRDT? She was in ''nearly'' every episode, and she was awesome. Meanwhile, the stupid truck that we only see once, in the ''next-to-last episode,'' gets a lot of screentime in the opening titles.
** Her contract? Or maybe she requested not to?
** It could actually be a reflection of her character. She's a powerful figure, but safest away from the spotlight.
* Tommy being the black Dino Thunder Ranger had several references to his original Green Ranger possition. He had a pointy gold shield (though only on his shoulders this time), he had more gold to his costume, and he was the first Ranger added to the team (after being the first Ranger added to ANY team). Heck, the key for the morpher even mirrors his last powers, the Turbo powers. But one thing bugs me. In Abaranger, the key to Abareblack's henshin device was a harmonica. A musical instrument. The Green Ranger's Dragon Dagger was a flute. A musical instrument. Why couldn't they use that as a reference? Maybe just a quick scene at the end of an episode where he pulls out the key and plays a Dragonzord song on it?
** That would have been cool. Although, I'm not sure that Disney actually had the rights to the original Dragonzord tune, as evidenced by...whatever that was that played in Tommy's battle with the Green Ranger. Even so, just playing anything on it would have been nice.

** My bet is on the former. Zeltrax created Evil White though the evil elements of the White Dino Gem (which were blasted out of Trent), cloning components from a fallen monster, and the Geno-Randomizer. By those points, Evil White is most likely just a monster elite that looks like the white ranger with pretty much the same powers as him (similar to [[EvilTwin Metal Sonic]] from [[Main/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]]) who has a one on one with Trent in the end. Though, if you think about it, Disney most likely had to fix the plot holes, because the original show, [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Abaranger]] didn't have Abare Killer (Trent's Japanese counterpart) turn to the good side until the end. Thus, they had to find a way to get past continuity issues and created Evil White. I'm not sure they were thinking of a reason, and they were only trying to pick up the pieces so that Trent could be a proper [[SixthRanger 6th(?) Ranger]] that was a staple for Power Rangers.

*** Tommy's stance on Trent was always somewhat softened. He even mentioned his own experience with being evil and gave Trent the benefit of the doubt far longer than the other Rangers did, thinking it was more a case of BrainwashedAndCrazy. When he finally does tell the Rangers to do whatever it takes about Trent, it stems from the fact that Trent is getting more and more out of control and has to be stopped for the greater good.

** In the clip show, they were just making a reference to the fact that Connor's actor made a cameo as Eric in the finale of [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Ninja Storm]]. They didn't include any other mention of Eric because he was a one-off reference...

* Was the White Range Clone ''just'' the powers in a replica suit or a human clone of Trent permanently morphed? If so, doesn't that mean that Trent ''killed'' a human destroying him? It doesn't bug me THAT much as he's purely evil, having no elements of Trent's good side in him, but I'm surprised this isn't brought up.

** As we saw in "Isn't It Lava-Ly", Mercer took an Invisi-Portal to Mesogog's lab when he felt the change coming. He probably does the same every time.

*** [[SnarkBait Oh]], like [[PowerRangersLightspeedRescue the Titanium Ranger]] or [[PowerRangersNinjaStorm the Thunder Rangers?]] (though perhaps they don't count either since they were lied to about the matter). With the special recap database, they should know all about at least one of these.
**** Also, don't forget [[PowerRangersSPD the SPD A-squad rangers]]

* During the "Fighting Spirit" episode, Tommy has a BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind against his [[PowerRangersZeo former]] [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Ranger]] forms. However, there's one glaring problem: Tommy was, for the first half (or less) of the season, [[PowerRangersTurbo the Red Turbo Ranger]], but he (Tommy) never fought it (his Turbo form). Why? Sure, his Dino Gem was split into three pieces and not four, but that could've been changed. This is exceptionally confusing when, during the ClipShow, Tommy was, in fact, shown as the first Red Turbo Ranger. So, again, what gives?

* Why was the Valkasaurus Megazord only used once and then never mentioned again? It was stronger than the Triceramax Megazord, for Zordon's sake! Plus, combining all the Zords (thus, giving a reason to have the core Rangers and the SixthRanger in one huge cockpit) became a staple for later seasons (except [[PowerRangersMysticForce Mystic Force]]), so, what the hell?
