Chase, Riley and Shelby get early Christmas presents and open them. They get hypnotized and leave. Tyler arrives and gets two presents, one for him and one for Kendall. He goes to the base and before he and Kendall can open it, Keeper arrives with Koda and Ivan from a portal. Tyler opens the present and becomes an evil elf, Koda reminds him of his real self with memories.

Chase comes in sad, saying he is the worst brother. Keeper says he is the best brother in the world. Santa comes in the base and thanks them and offers to take Chase home. Everyone says Merry Christmas. Chase’s gift is a puzzle with their pictures. Chase and Chloe hug at home.

Olive Penderghast, a 17-year-old girl living in Ojai, California, lies to her best friend Rhiannon Abernathy about going on a date in order to get out of camping with Rhiannon’s hippie parents. Instead, she hangs around the house all weekend listening to Natasha Bedingfield’s “Pocketful of Sunshine”, which is played by a greeting card she was sent. The following Monday, pressed by Rhiannon, Olive lies about losing her virginity to a college guy. Marianne Bryant, a prissy and strictly religious Christian at their school, overhears her telling the lie and soon it spreads like wildfire. The school’s conservative church group run by Marianne decides Olive will be their next project. Olive confides the truth to her friend Brandon, and he explains how others bully him because of his homosexuality. He later asks Olive to pretend to sleep with him so that he will be accepted by everyone as a “straight stud”.Brandon convinces Olive to help him and they pretend to have sex at a party. After having a fight with Rhiannon over Olive’s new identity as a “dirty skank”, Olive decides to counteract the harassment by embracing her new image as the school tramp. She begins to wear more provocative clothing and stitches a red “A” to everything she wears. Boys who usually have had no luck with girls in the past beg Olive to say they have had sex with her in order to increase their own popularity, in exchange for gift cards to various stores, in turn increasing her reputation. Things get worse when Micah, Marianne’s 20-year-old boyfriend, contracts chlamydia from sleeping with Mrs. Griffith, the school guidance counsellor, and blames it all on Olive. Olive agrees to lie to cover up the affair so that the marriage of her favorite teacher, Mr. Griffith, would be spared.
Marianne’s religious clique, which now includes Rhiannon, begins harassing Olive in order to get her to leave school. After an ill-fated date with Anson, a boy who wants to pay her to actually sleep with him and not just pretend she did, Olive reconnects with Todd, her old love interest, who is also the school’s mascot. Todd then tells her that he does not believe the rumors because he remembers when she lied for him when he was not ready for his first kiss years ago. Olive then begins to ask everyone she lied for to help her out by telling the truth, but Brandon and Micah have abruptly left town and everyone else is enjoying their newfound popularity and do not want the truth to get out. Mrs. Griffith also refuses to tell the truth and when Olive threatens to expose her, Mrs. Griffith rebuffs her, saying no one would believe her.
Out of spite, Olive then immediately tells Mr. Griffith, who believes her and separates from Mrs. Griffith. After a friendly talk with her open-minded mother Rosemary, Olive comes up with a plan to get everything finally out in the open. She then does a song and dance number at a school pep rally to get people’s attention to watch her via web cam, where she confesses what she has done (the web cam is the framing device of the film). The various boys whose reputations Olive helped improve are also shown watching. Later, Olive texts Rhiannon, apologizing for lying to her. When she is finishing up her web cast, Todd comes by riding a lawnmower and tells her to come outside. She signs off by saying she may lose her virginity to Todd, and proudly declares “it’s nobody’s goddamn business”. She goes outside to meet him, they kiss and the two are shown riding off on the lawnmower.Overall, Easy A doesn’t provide anything groundbreaking or revolutionary to the comedy genre, but it is certainly a breath of fresh air and just a good fun film.

I have been an immense fan of the Power Rangers ever since the first show aired and I have also been following and critiquing the show since I have had access to a computer. With that being said, I am the first to say that my hopes for Power Rangers Dino Superchargee were very high. Upon watching the first few episodes of Supercharge, I’m satisfied to say that my expectations were met and in some ways exceeded.

The Characters: Lets start out with the Rangers themselves. These characters are amongst the best I’ve seen since RPM, which to me, was the last truly great season and in many ways, they break all the molds that have plagued the series. As an African-American woman myself, I was most impressed to see the first Pink Ranger of African-American descent who brings a rare non-stereotypical portrayal that seems to be so common to African-American characters these days. She’s a rebellious tomboy whose intellect and knowledge of dinosaurs sometimes puts her at odds with the rest of the Rangers and especially Kendall Morgan, the resident Team Mom. There’s Tyler, the Red Ranger who brings a subtle comical portrayal to the traditional no-nonsense attitude Red Rangers have. Following nearly in the Red Ranger’s place is Chase, the Black Ranger and a cocky, ladies man whose native New Zealand accent makes the character a sleeker, more refined and lovable version of Zander from Power Rangers Mystic Force.

There’s Koda, the Blue Ranger, a caveman who has survived into the modern era due to the effects of the Energem he was bonded to. I cannot find Koda comical nor can I take him seriously, more on that later in my critique section of this review. Riley is the logic minded Green Ranger who brings a quiet intellectual approach that seems to make him stand out in contrast to the other Rangers who are very upfront and in your face in terms of personality. Rounding out the Rangers is Kendall, the resident Team Mom and technological expert who reminds me of a younger Mrs. Fairweather from Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue whose constant squabbling with Shelby in the first few episodes gives her a rare depth that is rarely found in television nowadays. Lastly, there is Keeper who functions as the Zordon equivalent but who has not seen much character development as of yet, something I hope will be expanded on later in the series.
42As for the villains we have the mysterious Heckyl/Snide who showed up last season, with sledge MIA, Heckyl takes over, he is a cold calculating villain and having half of him be human is brilliant similiar in ways to Jarred from Jungle Fury, as the season goes on he becomes a more complex villain. The overall storyline and premise of Supercharge is rather simple but played pretty much straight in that Heckyl/Snide wants the Energems, which are the most powerful objects in the universe and the source of the Ranger’s powers when Keeper bonded them to dinosaurs. In addition to this main storyline, there are smaller story lines scattered throughout such as Tyler’s missing father and his quest to find him, and there eventual reunion early on in the season. With a great Finale this season and Dinocharge have brought forward a great storyline that ran through these two season, a great team, great villains and a great ending. All I can say is bring on season 24 (Power Rangers Ninja Steel)

https://kevinfoyle.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/33f21-episode2bstill2b2.jpg?w=1140&h=760Scumlaw, a lawyer, sees his commercial on TV and Fury makes fun of Poisandra and she lets go Scumlaw to get the Rangers. Ivan and Kendall are dressed as a scarecrow and a musketeer. Ivan and Kendall watch as Scumlaw and his mummy police teleport the main five Rangers away. Riley is Sherlock, Koda is a samurai, Chase is a vampire, Tyler is either a matador or a mariachi and Shelby is a pirate. The Rangers are on trial with monsters for destroying monsters and they get a strike for every monster destroyed. When they reach ten marks, they will be destroyed. Pumpkins are the judges, cloaked monsters are the jury and a witch summons the witnesses, old monsters.Ninja and Hunter are called and they lie. Tyler clarifies that they put a virus that turned him into a T-Red. Meanwhile, Keeper finds a document about the trail, that Scumlaw never lost a case. Kendall remembers he controls the jury. Keeper says the only way in is with getting captured.https://kevinfoyle.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/b1dc4-episode2bstill2b3.jpg?w=1138&h=760Spellbinder and Golddigger are called out. Spellbinder says he was giving a hypno lesson, we see Chase be hypnotized and snap out of it and breaking Spellbinder’s plate. Spellbinder and Golddigger talk about when he was Spelldigger giving coins to people . Chase clarifies the coins made people greedy. The monsters talk about how they were destroyed, interestingly enough no zord footage. they get three strikes. Kendall and Ivan pretend when the mummies come. The mummies are taken away by two mysterious people. Ice Age, Stingrage, and Meteor are called. Ice Age talk about two times he encountered them. This time the zords are shown. Riley tells them that they were frozen in blocks of ice. Stingrage lies and Kods and Chase clarify about Koda being poisoned and turned against the Rangers. https://kevinfoyle.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/17c2f-curaje1wcaizhs4.jpg?w=520Ankylozord is shown too. Tyler talks about how Stingrage poisoned water to make people forget.  Meteor talk about New Zealand and Albert. Shelby talks about the truth about the Plesio Zord. Meteor claims the Plesiozord attacked him. We don’t see Albert in the footage. They get all ten strikes. The guards come in with Kendall and Ivan. The judge pumpkins say they are to be vaporized too. The mummies unmask the jury and reveal they are Poisandra and Viviks. The pumpkin sentence Scumlaw. The mummies are revealed to be Phillip and James. The Rangers are teleported back and fight Scumlaw and Viviks after they morph. The Ranger spot out puns. Viviks form the Vivizords. The Rangers summon the zords. Red, Black and Blue fight Scumlaw. Ankylo, T-Rex, Para and Raptorzord fight the Vivizords. All the Rngers gather and do a final strike on Scumlaw. Curio and Poisandra dont want to see the judges again and bump into pumpkins in the ship. Fury makes a scary jack-o-lantern that looks like him. Back at the Dino Cafe, the Rangers are about to go to a party when they encounter mummy judges who turn out to be James and Phillip once again.

https://kevinfoyle.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/547e9-episode2bstill2b1.jpg?w=1138&h=760As expected the episode is somewhat of a clipshow, where the episode places within the storyline of the season is to be determined, but most likely around the besties4eva episode. The episode is a fun episode and is cool seeing all 9 rangers together at the battling Scumlaw. Maybe a clipshow but it does have some good new footage and is a fun episode to watch for Halloween.

REVIEW: SHURIKEN SENTAI NINNINGER

Super Sentai has been host to a wide variety of themes and motifs over the years, but there is a handful that in the past have proven so successful that they are worth revisiting again and again. Dinosaurs is one that immediately springs to mind, as are cars/vehicles and of course ninjas. Shuriken Sentai Ninninger marks the third time Toei have produced a ninja-orientated Sentai, previously used by Ninja Sentai Kakuranger in 1994 and then Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger in 2002. The 39th entry in the franchise ran from February 2015 to February 2016, weighing in at a grand total of 47 episodes. shuriken_sentai_ninninger_wallpaper_by_unknownchaser-d8g1fmkCenturies ago in feudal Japan, a ruthless warlord named Gengetsu Kibaoni was slain by the Igasaki Ninja clan before discarding his humanity to become a powerful Yokai. His first attempt at resurrection 400 years later was thwarted by Yoshitaka Igasaki – the man who would go on to be known as the “Last Ninja”. Now in modern time, Gengetsu’s retainer Kyuuemon Izaoi revives the Kibaoni Corps with the goal of gathering enough fear to resurrect their leader once more.
With only the Igasakis able to withstand the threat of the Kibaoni Corps, Yoshitaka’s son Tsumuji gathers a new team of heroes to follow in the footsteps of their still-living grandfather – his children Takaharu and Fuka, along with their cousins Yakumo Kato, Nagi Matsuo and Kasumi Momochi. Fighting as the Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, the team also train in the clan’s Shuriken Ninja Arts as they compete against each other for the title of Last Ninja. They are later also joined by Kinji Takigawa – the American Yokai Hunter Star Ninger who has travelled to learn from the Last Ninja. Throughout their battles they learn the history of the Igasaki clan, its links with the mysterious Kyuuemon and the existence of the End Shuriken – a treasure containing a great power which the Kibaoni Corps wish to take for themselves.
When the “ninjas that do not stay hidden” first burst onto television screens initial reception was very positive. The revisited the ninja theme in full force, utilising extremely impressive stunt work that relied more on acrobatics than conventional wirework. The return to a family dynamic felt was refreshing, with the team actively competing against each other as well as working together. There was good variety in the hot-headed but skilled Takaharu, competitive magic-user Yakumo, the logical and scientific Kasumi, klutzy but determined Fuka and the more reserved yet earnest Nagi – later amplified by addition of Kinji initially working against the team before officially joining them.

Ninninger is another great Sentai series with a great cast and also merits some great guest stars from previous Sentai series, A worthy entry in the Super Sentai Franchise.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS – LIFE’S A MASQUERADE
The gang is helping to decorate the Youth Center for the Halloween costume party. Bulk and Skull end up having to help, Zack goes after Angela again, and Tommy helps Kimberly paint. Bulk and Skull’s antics once again end with Bulk getting hit with a bucket of paint. Rita Repulsa goes ahead with her plan to mine Super Putty, but needs to distract the Rangers. Finster creates a Frankenstein Monster. It’s sent to Angel Grove.
Image result for POWER RANGERS LIFES A MASQUERADE
 The five main Rangers convene at Billy’s house, all wearing costumes. Tommy is still finishing his costume and plans on catching up with them. Bulk and Skull try on costumes in hope of finding ones that will win the the big prize at the party, but just end up going in their usual punk outfits. Alpha shows up at the party because he wanted to party and hang out with the Rangers, and this costume bash would be the perfect opportunity (Alpha is soon surrounded by fawning girls, to Zack’s consternation). Frankenstein Monster crashes as well, but no one seems to notice, not even Alpha and his new fan club. Finster heads the mining of the Super Putty at some cave. Frankenstein Monster gets violent after its foiled attempt to catch the Rangers. It chases Bulk and Skull outside of the Youth Center. Billy follows the monster to the cave. He morphs and battles the beast with little success. He regroups with the others at the costume party as Rita erupts from the surface of Angel Grove on top of a giant ball of Super Putty. At the Command Center, Zordon fills the five in on Rita’s plans. Tommy is ambushed by Putties outside the Youth Center. The other five morph and go to confront Frankenstein Monster. It’s very powerful and the Rangers are barely holding out when Rita makes Frankenstein Monster grow.
Image result for POWER RANGERS LIFES A MASQUERADEMegazord duels with the monster and Tommy is finally able to morph and join his friends. Neither Dragonzord or Megazord have luck with fighting the creature so Dragonzord Battle Mode is formed. With the The Power Staff, the Rangers finally kill Frankenstein Monster after he initially manhandles the Dragonzord Battle Mode.Back at the Juice Bar, the Rangers celebrate their victory over Rita once again. Tommy runs off to change into his costume. Kim tells Alpha that he is a hit at the party, calling him by name in front of his new fawning fan club. Bulk and Skull show up to pick on the young robot, calling him a tin can. Tommy shows up in his Frankenstein Monster costume at the party. Ernie declares the winner of the costume contest to be… Alpha! Bulk tells Skull to grab a can opener, as he wants to learn what Alpha really is. Alpha states that his identity is one mystery that will have to remain unsolved, and he walks off with his newfound fan club.
An excellent first attempt for an Halloween episode, choosing Frankenstein as the monster was brilliant.
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS  – TRICK OR TREAT
Kimberly boasts to Trini and Tommy that she is going to be competing on Trick or Treat, the most popular game show in the country, and possibly win a new car. Unfortunately, her opponent just happens to be Skull, whom Bulk claims is going to be unbeatable. Up in the Moon Palace, Rita Repulsa has received word that her new monster Pumpkin Rapper has been planted and is ready to grow. As Trick or Treat begins, the host explains the rules. Each contestant asks him a trick question, and stumping him earns a Pumpkin Point. The one with the most points at the end wins. While the other Rangers are cheering for Kimberly, Tommy (who couldn’t go to the show due to having previously signed up for a karate tournament) stumbles onto a pumpkin patch full of rotten pumpkins in the park. Rita panics and has Putties sent down to deter Tommy from finding her monster, but he fights them off and informs Zordon of the attack before heading for the tournament.

 Kimberly quickly takes an impressive lead on Pumpkin Points, while Bulk helps Skull cheat by giving him hints from the audience. Just when she is one point away from winning, however, the other Rangers gesture to Kimberly that Zordon is calling and she is forced to fake a fainting spell in order to be taken off the set, making Skull the winner by default. Once they arrive at the Command Center, Zordon fills them in on the situation. After morphing, the Rangers arrive in the park and investigate the pumpkins. They suddenly latch onto their heads in an attempt to suffocate the Rangers, but Kimberly avoids getting caught and uses her Blade Blaster to free them. The pumpkins suddenly rise up and turn into pumpkin-headed Putties, and Pumpkin Rapper awakens to challenge the Rangers with both his electrified vines and his horrible rap-lyrics. Zordon is forced to summon Tommy into battle, costing him his spot in the tournament but saving the Rangers in time. With Tommy holding him down, the Rangers squash Pumpkin Rapper with the Power Blaster. Kimberly and Tommy shrug over being forced to lose their respective contests, but console themselves in knowing that they’re both winners. Bulk and Skull soon arrive to show off their new car, but their ride comes to an end when a representative of Network Standards and Practices declares Skull’s win as forfeit due to his and Bulk’s cheating and takes back the car.
The second Halloween episode is one of my all favorites, making a Kimberly episode was just brilliant and I really liked the Pumpkin Rapper monster. The game show part was funny too.
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS – ZEDD’S MONSTER MASH
As the teens enjoy Halloween with some of their young friends, Lord Zedd instructs the putties to crash the annual Youth Center Halloween Party by disguising themselves as kids. Then, as Tommy takes the disguised putties trick-or-treating, Goldar kidnaps him to a secret location to battle the most vicious Halloween monsters.
A Simple Halloween episode but a fun one, Tommy vs Monsters of the past, also the first mention of the peace conference, so it makes the episode important.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS SPECIAL – LORD ZEDD’S MONSTER HEADS
Lord Zedd obseves a Halloween party on Earth that the rangers are attending, and he seems impressed. Goldar suggests sending the Putties down, but Zedd turns around in anger; no, they will not be attacking the rangers today. They will give them a break from fighting evil for now, and let the humans of Earth have some peace for once. Instead, they will be having their own Halloween party, and there is no one better to do so than a Master of Evil such as himself. Previously destroyed monsters are recreated to serve as the guests for the party. Everyone has a good time, finally enjoying a day were they weren’t dealt a defeat by the Power Rangers. Fireworks go off outside the palace bringing the story to an end and closing it on a high note.
Doomstone
This Special was a direct video sold in the USA and is found on the series DVD, its mostly recycled footage with newly dubbed lines, its worth seeing but it is better to stick to the normal Halloween episodes.
POWER RANGERS ZEO – IT CAME FROM ANGEL GROVE
It’s a dark and stormy night at Angel Grove High School, and Adam is staying late to study while Tanya is asleep and Bulk and Skull are on night patrol. When Tanya gets up to leave, Bulk and Skull warn her that it’s a full moon tonight and that unusual things can happen under it, but Tanya just laughs and agrees to walk them home. As he studies, Adam is distracted by the television as it begins playing a favorite old monster movie of his, The Bride of Hackensack, and he ends up falling asleep on the sofa.
Later, Adam is rudely woken up when a black cat runs into the room. Adam chases it, only to run into Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd as they stand in the darkened hallway of the high school. They tell him that while he slept, the Machine Empire took over the planet and brainwashed his friends. Adam’s only hope is to follow the cat as it leads him to a powerful sorcerer, and he must also collect the cape of a vampire, the hair of a werewolf, the wrappings of a mummy, and the eye of a cat in order to earn the sorcerer’s trust and turn back the Machines. As Adam steps through a door, he finds himself in a black-and-white world and meets a vampire named Tomacula as a familiar-looking bartender serves drinks to him and his friends… except Tomacula wants something a little more fresh from Adam’s veins. King Mondo suddenly appears to taunt Adam and send down Cogs, and Adam grabs Tomacula’s cape while he’s distracted.
A voice suddenly calls out as a rope appears. Adam climbs it and appears in a forest where he meets Lord Henry. He and the villagers are on watch for a werewolf in the area, but Adam finds out that Henry himself is the werewolf. When Henry falls into the bushes, Adam grabs some of his caught hair and flees. After meeting with the local Burgermeister, Adam is directed to a nearby cave where a professor is researching the tomb of Prince Bulkenhotep. The mummified prince wakes up and chases them until Adam helps him unwind by pulling his wrappings off. Adam leaves the cave and arrives inside a strange laboratory, where Dr. William von Hackensack and his assistant Eye-Gor are at work creating a zombie bride. Suddenly, the cat reappears and transforms into Valencia, queen of the witches. She demands that Adam submits to her power, but he takes her cat’s-eye pendant and she melts away.
The four items gathered, Adam finally reaches the wizard Zordonicus, who forces him to choose one of his friends to fight the evil Drill Master. When Adam asks himself what Tommy would do in his situation, Zordonicus accepts it as Adam’s answer and sends Tommy into the battle. Tommy struggles against Drill Master, but he ultimately triumphs over the monster. Adam demands that Zordonicus revert the world to normal, but the sorcerer reveals himself to be King Mondo and sends monsters to destroy him. Adam is suddenly jostled awake by Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Rocky. As it turns out, Adam had slept through the whole night and suffered through one big nightmare. While Bulk and Skull pass through chasing what looks like the cat from his dream, Adam sees a TV commercial for an encore showing of The Bride of Hackensack. The other Rangers plan to watch it later, but Adam decides to pass on the offer as he’s had enough of scary movies.
An excellent episode one of the best Halloween specials and indeed one of the best episodes ever.
POWER RANGERS TURBO – CARLOS AND THE COUNT
While on his way home from Bulk and Skull’s Scary Film Festival, Carlos is ambushed and bitten in the park by Divatox’s latest monster, Count Nocturne. The next day, Carlos slowly starts to develop the attributes of a vampire, and the other Power Rangers quickly try to cure him and take down Count Nocturne. Meanwhile, Bulk and Skull are determined to slay Carlos before he turns his friends into vampires too.
This was a good showcase episode for Carl, it’s a fun episode seeing Carlos as he transforms into a vampire and Justin trying o prove to the others that Carlos is a Vampire.

This maybe part clipshow, but i’s good to see the monsters given a showcase episode which is fitting for Halloween it is also great to see what happens to Monsters after they are defeated.
POWER RANGERS SUPER SAMURAI – TRICKSTER TREAT
Master Xandred and Octoroo deploy a mind-bending Nighlok named Trickster, trapping the Power Rangers in a series of horror movies. The Rangers must figure out what is reality and what is illusion. Will the Rangers escape the nightmare?
Good use of recycled footage, with a new monster that used to his potential.  A very different Halloween episode than use too but a fun one.
POWER RANGERS MEGAFORCE – RAISING SPIRITS
The Mega Rangers are at Ernie’s as Emma plans to make pumpkin pie for them while Gia, Troy and Noah are carving pumpkins. Jake later arrives showing them a fortune teller’s tent (which wasn’t there that morning).
 The fortune teller is actually a monster named Glytcher, who can make machines glitch. After giving the Rangers (minus Emma) a bunch of visions of past monsters, Glytcher finds out who the Rangers are.  They morph and fight him but are outmatched even with Robo Knight helping them. Emma later finds out and has Ernie watch the pie for her as she helps them and together, they destroy Glytcher, who grows due to a Zombat. They form the Gosei Great and Gosei Grand Megazords to destroy the monster. At Ernie’s, Ernie presents the five with the pie which was baked for 650 degrees for 3 hours though it was supposed to be 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Jake wants to try it but the pie explodes. The Ranger later say “Ernie!”. A great Halloween episode, yes it may be part clipshow but it is still good and the storyline is again fun. Maybe a Emma episode but there  are some nice Jake and Gia moments.
POWER RANGERS DINO CHARGE – THE GHOSTEST WITH THE MOSTEST
Image result for POWER RANGERS DINO CHARGE THE GHOSTEST WITH MOSTESS
 This episode opens up on Sledge’s ship, where Wrench has just completed his resurrection platform. With it, he can bring back any monster the rangers have destroyed. His first target, is Duplicon, who Sledge wants to send to the proper authorities, to collect his bounty. However Duplicon escapes, and makes his way to the prison cells where Curio is, wishing all of the captives a Happy Halloween, and expresses his excitement for going Trick or Treating. Duplicon crashes into Curio, right in front of Memorella’s cell. As Sledge aproches, Memorella uses her powers and reads Sledge’s mind. It’s here, she pitches Sledge an idea he can’t turn down: Memorella will capture a ranger and read its mind, then Duplicon will turn Memorella into that ranger, allowing her to walk into the base, and take the energems. This is a much simpler task as today is also the Amber Beach Dinosaur Museum’s Halloween Party, allowing Memorella to walk right in through the front door without a problem.
Back at the base, Kendall is finishing the touches on the Dino Cupid Charge, dressed as Cupid. The six rangers show up, all in the same bed sheet ghost costumes created by Chase. As the rangers go enjoy the party, Memorella makes her move and captures one of the rangers, and Duplicon transforms her. Kendall calls the rangers back to the base, after detecting alien DNA, and seeing the security footage.Realizing one of the rangers is a fake, Kendall starts interrogating the rangers with a lie detector, by asking them about their experiences. However as Shelby is being asked why she decided to dress up as a princess to fool Fury, Kendall realizes that Memorella is disguised as Koda. Simply because Koda always calls her Kendall, and not Ms. Morgan, as the others do. This theory is proven true as the real Koda slides through the base, having escaped. Koda takes back his energem and Memorella escapes.
The rangers track her down and the battle begins. Using the Cupid Charger, Shelby makes the Vivix fall in love with Memorella who hold her down, while Ivan deals the finishing blow. Sledge infuriated orders the magna beam be fired, and Memorella is supersized. Ivan volunteers to fight Memorella with the Ptera Charge Megazord. However, at Ivan’s request, Tyler joins the fight, using the Pachy Zord, and creates the Ptera Charge Megazord: Pachy formation. Using the wrecking ball, the rangers are victorious.
 Back on his ship, Sledge is furious with Duplicon, not only with his failure, but the fact he and Curio went trick or treating as Memorella did all the work. Duplicon tries to explain he didn’t, but Curio comes in with a transport pod full of candy.Infuriated even further, Sledge locks Duplicon up in his stinkiest cell. Back at the Dino Bite Cafe kitchen, Shelby is trying to get the jammed Cupid Charger out of her morpher, when Tyler asks why Shelby did the princess routine. As she tries to explain, Shelby accidentally shoots Chase, where he falls in love with his own reflection.
Dino Charge has just been plain awesome from episode 1 and this Halloween episode is no different, t’s part clipshow but the clips are useful to the story. Kendall looked amazing as always. Great  episode and although it only aired a we ago it’s become one my of favorite episodes
