Recap / Power Rangers Samurai S1E5 Day Off

Go To

Struggling to master a secret power disc, Jayden foregoes a trip with the others to an amusement park, where the rest of the team encounters the evil Nighlok Dreadhead.


  • Broken Aesop: The Red Ranger stays behind to train on his day off while all the other Rangers go to an amusement park. His master says that in order to master his weapon, he needs balance in his life and should have more fun. The Ranger shrugs him off and eventually masters the weapon with more training, even after all these hints that in order to master his weapon, he needed to have more fun.

  • Determinator: Jayden staying up all night to master the Beetle Disk kind of counts, but presents a surprising deconstruction (or Broken Aesop, depending on how cynical you are) as the moral of the episode is that it's actually not very useful to push yourself too far.
  • Mythology Gag: Bulk and Spike chow down on cotton candy much like the clip used in the original's title sequence (from the first season episode "No Clowning Around").
  • Training from Hell: Self-enforced by Jayden, when he tries to master the Secret Beetle Disc. He gets thrown back by its sheer force too many times to count, but he just won't give up.

How well does it match the trope?
