I am not sure how I feel about this ep. First it makes a good point of not relying on tech but then it makes a strong point for it, even though Ollie's devices are glitchy at best. I guess the point was to trust your friend even when you think they're wrong? I don't know... I did like the plot point of cutting the Rangers off from teleporting, I just wish the forest was more threcherous for them.
The Rangers fight Tombtress and she makes Izzy super scared, Zayto super lazy and Ollie super happy. Amelia arrives with the key and dons Blazing Battle Armor and fights Tombtress. She becomes huge. Three Rangers are still moody. Amelia gets Zayto's key to call the T-Rex and it shows up but also Dimetro Blaing Zord appears. T-Rex Blazing Megazord is formed. The Rangers are transported in but three of the moody Rangers sit it out. Javi and Amelia fight. Megazord fights Tombtress. They destroy the Tombtress. Pop Pop fixes the AC at BuzzBlast. It seems to be too windy. Pop Pop says he has to make an adjustment. He apologizes to her. Jane goes in and it's too hot inside. Amelia apologizes and says she is thankful for him. They hug. He says her parents would be proud. Jane comes out of the freezing office. She challenges him to a snowball fight.
It is truly awesome to see Pink Ranger in an armor which her counterpart did not don in Ryusoulger (the armor exists in Ryusoulger but Pink never wore it). Also, a great story connecting her grandfather and also giving backstory to as to why Amelia likes the paranormal, she believes something mysterious happened to her parents. Maybe she thinks she can find their ghosts? Also nice to have an episode with Jane solo and not with J-Borg. Not that I hate J-Borg but it is nice to see them apart. Also nice to see Javi and Amelia communicate in BuzzBlast which we don't see that often. The scene between Pink Ranger and PopPop is really touching even though one person is in costume. It all comes together with Pop Pop's performance, Amelia's voice acting, and the Suit actor's acting.

Hasbro Power Rangers Lightning Collection figures get revealed on Fan First Fridays, but yesterday June 11, 2021 they did a color-specific theme. For the first time, Pink Ranger theme. Fans were hoping for Jen the Pink Time Force Ranger and any other Pink Ranger after 1997. Some reveals were a bit underwhelming.
I will be getting the helmet for sure and it seems Razzle knows. The Morpher has been done before by Bandai America, I would have done Black or Yellow Ranger.
Two Katherine heads and MM Pink and Zeo Pink with PC figure. I would get it just for PC. Some people said why not Turbo Pink but I guess they just want to finish the current teams (MMPR, Zeo, In Space, Lost Galaxy, Time Force, Dino Thunder, SPD, Dino Charge, Beast Morphers) before starting new ones.
The thinking behind this would be to look like it is from a comic book. I didn't really like this reveal. When they said Pink Ranger-themed, people thought all Pink Rangers but apparently only Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger.
