Power Rangers Beast Morphers - A Friend Indeed - Episode Review

Blaze and Roxy makes a Robotron from a train and wants the info from the Beast Bots to control the Megazord. Ravi and Devon spar in the base. Smash offers Ravi blueberry drink and Ravi doesn't take it. Devon takes it and Cruise is disappointed when he brings him a drink. Smash offers to spar with Ravi, Ravi says not to do it soft. Smash stains Ravi's shirt. Zoey looks for Jax and finds a bag and wants office supplies. Inside are party supplies. Jax says it is the wrong bag. Betty and Ben get the bag and leave with Jax. Ravi and Devon enter. Nathan tells them to train. Zoey wishes the Beast Bots would do what they want. A truck comes towards the but it is a hologram.

Nathan shows them it is a nano-projector in their blasts. Beast Bots arrive and tell them to take a break. They tell them later. Beast Bots are disappointed. The Tronics attack and the Rangers morph. They fight. The Robotron takes the memory data from Cruise and Smash and they shut down. Robotron goes after Jax when the Opening Sequence runs. Zoey helps him. Blaze takes him away. Zoey tells them. They find  Cruise--who had a reboot and doesn't remember them. Same with Smash. Later, Nathan explains they just obey them, no personality. Devon and Ravi aren't so sad about it.  Nathan wishes he wants one like that--like a brother. Zoey says Jax drives her crazy too. Devon rides Cruise and happy he obeys him. He splashes in mud. He is mad. Cruise says he was told to take it.

Ravi tells Smash not to take easy. He punches him back. Ravi is mad. Smash says it is what he commanded. Jax and Zoey bumped into each other. Jax says the tablet is in Nathan's lab. Zoey wants to go into a room and Jax doesn't let her in. Ravi and Devon talk to Nate and Nate leaves. Zoey complains about Jax with Jax behind her and heard it. He turns the jacket and her tablet is there. Jax leaves. Zoey feels bad. Zoey goes after him and find a party the Beast Bots wanted to give them. Jax explains the reasons why Smash and Cruise messed up earlier. Zoey apologizes to Jax. Nate arrives and explains why they got the discs. Jax wants to set up a trap. Zoey wants to keep him safe. The others convince her. Later, Jax bumps into a Robotron.

Zoey comes out of hiding and knocks the discs out of the Robotron's hands. They get the discs and gives them to Jax to give to Nate. The Rangers fight the monster. They destroy him. Snozzle is upset and send an Alpha model Gigadrone. Raildrone arrives with two other robots. Nate adds the memories back to the Beast Bots. They reunite. They go in the zords. Gorrilla mode and battle mode are used. They attack the Gigadrones. The trio form the Megazord. The three Gigadrones do like a train. The two drones are destroyed. Cheetah Beast Blaster is called. Raildrone eliminated. The Beast Bots enter a dark room. Lights turn on and the party has turned into a thank you to the Beast Bots. Zoey explains they deserve the party and they are their best friends. Nate ask for Ben and Betty. Smash knocks on the cake and Ben and Betty surprise them from within. Snozzle tells the Tronics to take parts to a warehouse. Roxy and Blaze are told about a secret plan--a cyber gate for Evox.

A friend of mine wanted more interaction with the Beast Bots, here is a whole episode dedicated to it. Wish it was more in every ep though.

Power Rangers Beast Morphers - Hangar Heist - Episode Review

The episode starts with the Gigadrone inside the secret hangar lab and Devon asking Nate for Morph-X to use on a rocket. Outside, the Rangers and Ben and Betty put the Morph-X in the rocket but it doesn't launch. Ben and Betty try to 'fix it' but it points sideways and launches in the wrong direction. Ben and Betty run away from it and then go after it when they reveal it actually belongs to their father. Devon takes out his own model rocket and it breaks apart and doesn't launch it. Ravi critiques it and Devon takes it as an insult. Devon gets defensive and leaves. 

Meanwhile, Evok blames Roxy for losing the Gigadrone and she says she will make up for it. Back at GB headquarters the Rangers do a simulation of forming the Megazord but Ravi and Devon butt heads. Ravi gives Devon advise and Devon rather go with his guts. Devon storms off when the simulation has failed. The Commander talks to Devon about being a good leader means to listen to your teammates, especially Ravi since he has experience and training. Devon thinks about it. Ben and Betty find the rocket but one of the burners hasn't gone off. They spot Roxy. Roxy asks Scrozzle for help with the steel door. 

Scrozzle made a Robotron from a gas tank of some sort. The monster can melt anything so it melts the door and they go in. A piece of a burner goes off and makes Ben and Betty fly away. Roxy puts Morph X into the Gigadrone. Devon arrives in Cruise (which doesn't turn back into a robot or even speak) and the others in the GB SUV. They fight Roxy. Scrozzle in the mean time takes things from the lab including a robot head---(J from Go-Busters). Ravi kicks Devon out of the base to save them. He gets the Racer Zord and tries breaking the street to take the Rangers out but Scrozzle releases another Gigadrone. The first Gigadrone stops Devon. Zoey and Ravi destroy the Robotron. They fight and Devon uses the melter thing from the second Gigadrone to release Ravi and Zoey. Ravi and Zoey are saved by their zords. 

The Rangers fight with the zords. They try forming the Megazord. The two Gigadrones try stopping them but there was a forcefield around them. They form the Megazord and they destroy the Gigadrones. Back in the evil lair, Scrozzle and Evok talk about a secret project. Roxy and Blaze want to know what it is and Evok threatens them. The Rangers present Ben and Betty with their dad's rocket fixed. They successfully fly the rocket off. 

A better episode then last week. A good part was we get a slow build to the new Megazord, not like most recent seasons where Megazords just appear out of nowhere. Also J's head being stolen by Scrozzle is interesting. The actual conflict between Ravi and Devon feels authentic and I loved the Commander's advice. I wish she had a full name though.
