Power Rangers Ninja Steel - Royal Rival - Episode Review

This is late because of Hurricane Irma

Sarah reveals her new creation in class which is a cookie creator that you can put any food. Victor asks Monty for his lunch. It has Sardines, Broccoli and Liver. The cookie is delicious. The teacher wants the project from Victory and Monty which they don't have. In space, Cosmo Royale introduces Princess Viera, the new ruler of the Lion Galaxy and Drillion. Drillion wants Cosmo to bow. Viera says they will destroy the Rangers. Madame Odius says she is a weak ruler. Back with the Rangers, Sarah makes cookies. Hayley sees that Victor and Monty have a cow and are going to make fresh milk. Monty finds out where the milk comes from on his phone which shocks him. Victor touches the udders to get full of milk. The police come and report a stolen cow.

Victor and Monty go with him downtown. The line for Sarah is getting longer. Redbot calls them. Mick will man the cookies. Drillion arrives and attacks. Princess watches from on high. The Rangers arrive. Drillion fights them. He beats them up. They deflect the blast which hits the Princess and Pink saves her with vines. She asks who she is. Viera is surprised. Viera goes to Drillion and tells them to stop the battle. She tells him to obey her. They leave. Pink tells them what happen. Back on the ship, Viera and Galavanax debate. Viera says she is smart, she studies her enemies. Galavanax tells Drillion to destroy the Rangers and he will rule the Lion Galaxy. Viera observes the Rangers and their cookie business.

Sarah offers a box of cookie and offers her one cookie. Viera says it is delicious. A thief steals the box. Viera become a cape and wraps around the young thief. Sarah arrives and tells her to let her go. They find out the kid has nothing to eat and he had to drop out of school to look after his sister. Sarah takes Billy with her. She shows him the cookie creator. Sarah offers the machine for her so no more stealing. Viera says might makes right where she came. She reveals she knows she is a Power Ranger. Sarah puts her knuckles up. Viera tells her she is shown kindness is stronger.

Drillion arrives to destroy them both. Viera sheilds Sarah. The Rangers arrive and blast Drillion. Sarah thanks Viera who she sends to safety. The Rangers morph and fight Drillion. Drillion stops their attacks/ He throws disks at Blue and Pink and break their element stars. Viera comes in and helps Sarah. She has an idea and leaves. Red fights Drillion. Then the others. All six fight him. The ship tells the bad guys to look for Viera. She hides and gets on her Lion Zord and flies away. Galavanaz tells Cosmo Royale to make Drillion big and sends Skullgators.

The Rangers see this and call their zords. They make the Fusion Megazord and enter the cockpit. They do Fusion Slash and destroy the Skullgators. Drillion knocks the Rangers out of their zords. The Lion zord arrives and blasts Drillion. It becomes night and Drillion says not too and that she is too powerful. Drillion leaves. Viera is proud and leaves. The Rangers are happy.

Galavanax is peaved. They fire cannons at her and her ship goes down. She crashes. At their class, Sarah tells her teacher she can not continue the project. Billy the boy arrives and tells the teacher she gave her the invention and thank you. He has re-enrolled in school. The teacher changes her grade to an A +. Victor and Monty are called but they are still in jail--in a line up. They are pointed out in the line up. Meanwhile, Viera leaves her ship. To be continued...

I live in Miami and because of Hurricane Irma, I had no electricity, cable or internet. I kinda liked the episode. Sarah has only gotten one episode so far so its hard to pin point her personality. Here she is radically different from the mutlitasking genius she was. Here she is cool under pressure and quick thinking with helping the boy Billy. BUT then utterly stupid when she is about to accept a failing grade with the teacher. She should had just told her the truth and how convenient it is that Billy arrived just then. He looks like he belongs in elementary compared to the twenty-somethings. Viera is an interesting character and a nice actress. Looks like the next ep we will see more character development from her and Mick. Even though this episode starts up an arc, it still acts like a standalone filler episode, much like Dino Charge.
