The judge says he will move Javi into the final slot for tomorrow. Blair says he can't win. The judges have Blair continue. Mucus listens to the song in the base. Mucus tells Void Queen her idea of copying a weapon or zord. Void Queen says her plan is already in motion, She turns on the Sproxi machine, the Sporix energy goes around Tarrick. She laughs. 

Javi is upset, saying he can't come up with anything, and wants to pull out. Solon says you only fail when you don't try, which is from a fortune cookie. She says there is an alert. The Rangers arrive and it is Void King. They don't recognize him. They morph. He flies in the air and beats them up. Ollie demoprhs. She swings Amelia in the air and, she hits a wall and de-morphs. Izzy and Aiyon hit cars and de-morph. Javi goes to Izzy's aid. Void Knight explains he was Tarrick. Ollie says he tried to help them. He says Void Queen corrected him. Zayto tells them to go and gets the Dino Knight Morpher. He dons the armor. He knocks Void King over. Void King calls his weapon. He does DIno Knight Strike and knocks Red down. He copied his attack. Red retreats. Izzy and the others are on hospital beds in the base.

Javi says he will transform and fight like him so they can find a weakness. Outside, they practice. Javi dons the Dino Knight Armor and fights Zayto. Javi does the final attack and Zayto tries a special move. He dodges the attack. Javi tries the attack again, saying he needs more energy. Zayto does his own finisher and takes Javi down. Zayto says to try a new strategy for his song. Void King attacks again and Zayto goes without the others. Solon worries. Zayto arrives and morphs in front of Void King. Void Kning tries the copy attack again. Red avoids it but tries the strike. Void King tries again but he can't and Red bashes King. Sparks fly and he explodes. Void King survives and retreats. The Rangers recover. Zayto arrives all dirty and says he won. Zayto tells him he owes Javi. Javi says he will need an assistant.

At Buzz Blast, Javi shows up with his guitar and starts singing. He sings the same song "Spotlight." Zayto arrives with other instruments. He gives Javi the Keytar and he plays it. He then gives him a Bass Guitar and he plays it. Then he plays the harmonica. The Rangers cheer him on. He continues to play the guitar and sing. At the end, they applaud. Jane calls it a show stopper. J-Borg says there is a surprise--MuMu is performing. They show Mucus singing. Slyther and Shipwreck arrive where she is, Wreckmate destroy Mucus and she explodes. Jane announces the winner as Javi Garcia. Blair is not happy. Izzy and his dad hug them and the Rangers congrats him. Carlos holds up the trophy. Javi thanks Zayto and Zayto says it was all him. 

Episode Review:

It is a bit ambiguous if Void Queen did use Mucus' idea to copy powers because Void King did copy Zayto's powers. It is a bit confusing if whatever Void King uses to copy the attacks has to use the same energy as the Dino Knight armor has to. Good to see the annoying Blair back. Also great to see Carlos support his son.

Power Rangers Dino Fury - Serious Business - Episode Review

At the villain lair, Slyther, Mucus, and Wreckmate have been helping Void Queen find Void Knight. Void Queen wakes up Trackenslash to find Void Knight. Wreckmate has another project with Wreckmate. Tarrick (in a purple shirt showing off his biceps and a cap and some weird belts around his torso) sends a drone in Buzzblast to listen in to the Rangers. Zayto doesn't trust Void Knight and thinks he won't change. Jane is limping and doesn't want to use a crutch. She does a live stream, saying they will hit 10 million subscriptions soon. J-Borg puts a video but it turns out to be how Jane got injured--doing dance moves. The computer freezes and J-Borg struggle to fix it. Everyone laughs at the video and Jane tries playing it off. They go offline and then a hacker with a clown mask says she has control of BuzzBlast. She does lame pun jokes that only Aiyon likes. She wants her own BuzzBlast show. Aiyon doesn't understand why everyone is serious. They explain they might lose their jobs. Solon says a Sporix Beast is heading t Buzz Blast. Tarrick closes communications with his drone. His drone falls off the ceiling and J-Borg finds it, thinking it is connected to the hacker.

The Rangers face them and Javi says a bad joke. They find out they are looking for Void Knight. The Rangers morph and fight. Green uses Sprint Key and fights the monster. She is knocked down. Gold uses Electro Battle Armor. The Monster fights Blue and Red. Void Queen asks for an update and Slyther tells her about the Rangers. She just wants Void Knight. The Rangers tease the Monster and he blasts them, getting them down to the ground. The villains retreat. Back at the base, the Rangers re-watch the hacker video. Aiyon likes the jokes. Izzy has them zoom in and spot a fountain. She says she knows the park. They arrive at the park and look for clues. Aiyon picks up trash and a little girl asks why he is doing that. They find a rubber fish. The little girl says the same puns the hacker says. They shake hands and he finds out she is the hacker. She admits it. He gets an idea and takes her bike wheel. If she wants the bike wheel back, she needs to unfreeze the livestream. He tells her she has potential and don't waste it. He puts the wheel back and leaves her.

Pink uses Hyper Key and fights Trackenslash. He falls. The Hengemen are destroyed. Pink uses Muscle Flex and the others fight the monster. Red calls the Smash Dino Key and dons the armor. He punches the monster. He is pushed back. Back at BuzzBlast, J-Borg admires Void Knight's drone. The little girl admits the truth. J-Borg asks if she made the drone, she says no. Tarrick checks his drone and hears the conversation between Jane and the girl. The girl apologizes and says she can fix the hack. She gives her a flash drive with a fix code.

Jane thanks the little girl for fixing the stream and says she can audition for a comedy thing. Aiyon is happy and she thanks him. Javi is surprised she is the hacker. The Rangers are impressed what Aiyon did. The little girl did another punny joke which Aiyon loves. J-Borg doesn't think they will reach 10 million subscribers. Jane does a tap dancing performance for the live stream. They hit ten million subscribers.

Episode Review:
Aiyon reminds me of lame Saban Brands Rangers, that just want to have fun and don't understand they are acting childish. Seriously, the Rangers are so behind on what is going on with the villains, with Void Queen and Void Knight's betrayal. Great episode though. I like the twist that the hacker is a little girl. I like how it is more realistic than iCarly on how they do live streaming. A lot of writers these days have live streaming as if it was an actual television show with a countdown, multiple cameras, and sets.  

Power Rangers Dino Fury - New Leaf - Episode Review

Ollie is talking to his mom on a webcam, when she tells him about a Professor Floyd he likes. Javi says Amelia is interviewing him. Professor Fkiyd arrives and meets Amelia. He and Ollie reunite. Professor likes her bracelet which Ollie makes fun of. Professor is nice. Ollie apologizes about her. He tells her not to dismiss ideas too quickly. He calls him out on his attitude, saying he is a know-it-all. He pushed the other students away. Ollie says to Amelia that he doesn't listen--and doesn't listen to her. She politely excuses herself.

Jane talks. A tentacle makes the hot tub spin around and takes away the phone. They see a tentacle from a taxi. Squash Light and Void Knight arrive and Jane and J-Borg run off. Squash Blight makes the water purple and freezes people. Jane slows down and freezes up, becoming a tree. J-Borg screams for her. Void Knight watches a man plead for his daughter. Gold blasts them. Squash Blight says his shell is indestructible. The Rangers throw their daggers on him. Squash Blight says he will fill the water with venom and leaves. Ollie gets the pool water for Solon to test. Javi says he will tell his dad to tell the city to stay away from the water. Back at the lab, Ollie sees the venom under a microscope without gloves. Solon makes lame jake. Amelia arrives. The venom boils. Amelia wants to turn it down, Ollie gives an attitude. The venom covers Solon and she becomes a tree. 

Ollie asks Amelia for help. At the evil base, they plan to put venom in the river. Squash Light says he wilts in the dark. Void Knight shows Void Queen the spaceship to escape Earth and she destroys it. She drops Void Knight to the ground. Amelia suggests using her bracelet, he gives attitude. He then apologizes and they use the bracelet. The iron gets on the bracelet. They make a liquid and spray Solon and she returns to normal. The villains go to the river. The Rangers arrive, morph and fight. They try fighting Squash Light but it is hard. Shipwreck tells him to go to Plan B. Back at the villain lair, Void Light and Vid Queen talk. Void Knight says she must be defeated. He teleports away. She says that was a bad idea. T-Rex and Ptera Zord are deployed. Void Knight arrives and says he is not there to fight. He tells them about Void Queen and to defeat Squash Blight. Shipwreck calls him a traitor and leaves.



The Zords fight Squashblight. Squash Blight starts making a storm cloud of venom to rain. Ollie thinks if they get him in the clouds, they can soften him up. They call Pacha Zord and make a new Megazord--Pyera Smash Ultrazord. The Rangers enter the cockpit and fight. They slash him in a tornado. They call the Megafury Saber. They do a combined attack and destroy him. The clouds dissipate. Zayto gets the Sporix. They return the people back to normal from trees. J-Borg hugs Jane. Back at Buzz Blast, Zayto doesn't believe Void Knight was genuine. Ollie thanks the Professor and says he will listen more often. The Professor says it is great. Ollie goes to Amelia. He thanks her. She says they make a pretty good team. He apologizes for mocking her. He tells her he respects her. She says apology accepted. They hug. She says nothing has changed. She ordered a spook snare for her. He says he can deal with pink.

Episode Review:
Squash Blight's accent was cool. Squash Blight mentioning his weak point to Void Knight out of nowhere was a bit lazy writing. Void Queen's intentions and characterizations are still on the 2-dimensional side, we need to know more. That being said, I like an outside character is calling Ollie out on his behavior. The octopus avoiding Jane and J-Borg was random but I hope it returns. They need a nemesis. Also, the other Rangers should've found a solution for Squash Blight's shell instead of doing nothing while Ollie and Amelia made the antidote for the venom. But of course, if they did, Void Knight's insider info wouldn't have been valuable. But at least a throwaway line on what the others were doing in the mean time or at least considered it.

He says he will change. Javi says he was playing it for fun, he realizes he might want to make a career out of it. Carlos says he will be behind him every step of the way. They hug.

Review:
A pretty by the numbers episode. All I can say is that the monster costume for Void Queen is Madame Noir from Toqger, a sentai that has not been adapted into Power Rangers. Cosmo Royale was also a villain from Toqger.
