Power Rangers Ninja Steel - Grave Robber - Episode Review

Episode Summary:
Here is the annual Halloween special. Levi is playing a song with the Rangers in the mall... I mean the school. An old lady gives some junk to Principal Hastings, one is a game Grave Robber which Calvin likes. Hayley brings the costumes. The Rangers want to play but Levi doesn't. The 5 Rangers go to shop class and put on their costumes, Sarah is some sort of unicorn, Brody is a mounty or a British guard, Calvin is Frankenstein's monster, Preston is a wizard and Hayley is a witch. Cosmo Royale traps them to sit and they can't call for help. They have to play Jumanji... I mean Grave Robber. 

There is a magic hourglass they can't stop. They have to fight villains they defeated before so they fight Trapsaw, already morphed when they touch the crystal ball. Red defeats them all. Sarah rolls 6 and finds Hacktrack, who took her cloning technology. They get some devices and enter. Hacktrack leaves. Red tracks the monster with a Ninja Kite technique using Ninja Forest Attack while the Rangers help Sarah with a device. She makes a kite as well and flies after them. Sarah blasts the monster and destroys it. The Rangers return to the game.

Preston rolls a five and find the slow monster. They surprise him and fight him. Blue and the monster fight. Blue and the others get the slow mist. Blue still tries fighting but fails. Red arrives and they all disappear and return to the board. Cosmo Royale says they lost and give them a misfortune card. Calvin rolls and gets Spinferno. Calvin goes in on his own since he rolled it. Calvin fights Spinferno in a dump and a truck goes after him and Calvin is tied by a ring to the truck. The truck driver is asleep, Yellow gets in and gets the man. They escape but Yellow misses the net and comes out of the game. Cosmo Royale gives them another misfortune card---they must go against a Skullgator.

The 5 Rangers call their Megazord to fight the Skullgator. Cosmo turns RoboRider evil and it goes after the Rangers. Robo Red goes out to fight Robo Rider while Preston calls the Astro Zord to replace the Red one on the Megazord. They destroy the Skullgator. Robo Rider shoots the Megazord. The Rangers fall out. Cosmo Royale sends another Skullgator. Calvin  and Hayley use their zords. Levi and Mick talk. Mick states the obvious, Levi learns his Aseop and goes to the auto class. He finds the door lock and pries it open. He finds the game. He touches the ball and enters the game. Cosmo Royale arrives and is mad. 

He doesn't play by the rules and saves the Rangers. Robo Rider stops the Skull Gator. The others celebrate. Bullrider Megazord is formed. All 6 Rangers enter the cockpit. They destroy the monster. Gold has the hourglass and all the Rangers blast the hourglass and escape the game. They are happy they can stand again. Levi apologizes by spoiling their game. They get an alert so they go trick or treating because it is night now. 

Best Line-- Presto: "Magic Hourglass? I have to get me one of those." Nice to  have Cosmo Royale involved but he's not a fighter so they didn't have a hand to hand combat. Not a bad Halloween special, sort of reminds me of the Megaforce one since they had to sit around a crystal ball. Nice to sneak a lesson in there for Levi though.
