Shelby says it is okay. Erin tells the Rangers that the Triceratops song belongs to Shelby and they sing it together.
I was going to dismiss this episode as just filler but it just gels, from Heckyl wanting cinnamon, Wrench malfunctioning, Erin's performance, funny instances and Shelby's acting. What doesn't quite work is Shelby being friends with Erin. She keeps saying Bestie' but we don't actually see them being friends for long. It is most like a sister or cousin. If it was just a boring filler, would have been better if this was aired with the first group of episodes. But it wasn't a boring filler. It was quite entertaining.
