They glow and they are back to normal. Steel laments being half-robot again. Nate says he will not stop trying to make him human again. Zoey says they will always be there for him.

Episode Review:

Even though most PR fans don't like it when there is a musical number, the cast clearly enjoyed doing one. The song was corny but it was fun and served a purpose. As for the episode, it is anvilious in this moral as always but a valid one, Steel wants to be fully human. Weird out of all the robots on Power Rangers (good and evil), only two wanted to be human (Mac and Steel). Robo Knight didn't wnat to be human.
