Recap / Power Rangers Beast Morphers Episode 5 Taking Care Of Business

Go To

As Devon is forced into his first job as a car washer, Blaze enacts a new plan to gain more Morph-X for Evox.

Tropes Used in this episode:

  • Bittersweet Ending: Another one, albeit not as bitter as the previous episode. After getting fired from the carwash, Devon's relationship with his father is back to where it started. However, the episode ends on a hopeful note as Devon, while listening to his father publicly praise the Power Rangers, believes that some day his father will learn the truth.
    • Also, the villains managed to score 300 tons of Morph X off screen.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Devon is riding an X-Bike in the opening scene.
    • One of the pieces of Gigadrone debris comes from the Shoveldrone.
    • Ravi mentions that he and Zoey came close to hitting their weakpoints during the first fight with Blaze and Slicertron.
  • Advertisement:
  • Eureka Moment: After seeing Betty and Ben's Dogotronic, Nate gets the idea to salvage leftover parts from destroyed Gigadrones in order to reverse engineer them for the Ranger's arsenal.
  • Foreshadowing: The head of a certain stag beetle bot from the source material can be seen wheeled past on a cart. Nate blows it off as extra junk that needed to be removed.
  • Mythology Gag: The Rangers gain brand new wrist communicators, a trend that was discontinued with In Space and brought back with this show’s predecessor. Even more, their call tone is the classic "Go Go Power Rangers" beeps used with the original communicators.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: When Blaze sees the Rangers distracted at the carwash, he breaks their phones and communicators so Commander Shaw can't call them on Robotron attacks. By the time she finds them, Slicertron already collected 300 tons of Morph-X.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • As Nate discovered, the damaged Gigadrone parts do not offer much data for them to use.
    • Devon lost his job at the carwash due to leaving work when he was not supposed to due to his Ranger duties.
