* Seeing Casey's journey from a whole series perspective is quite inspiring. He goes from an ostrisized and unsure "Cub", chosen at the last moment to replace a senior member, to a beloved member of the team, and eventually a respected master willing to help anyone with a second chance.
* Fran's development is just as great- starting out looking like she'd be blown over in a stiff wind, she, on her ''own'', learns the Ranger's identities, covers for them throughout the season ''and'' saves RJ from his wolf spirit. Not bad for a support character.
