It’s going to be a short review this week folks, as it is one of those weeks…
Long story short, this week is a Recap clip show, so the bulk of the episode is just retreading what we have already seen. So let’s focus on the framing device, and that starts with Bang Ray having trashed an entire resturant while chugging wine. Displeased at his inability to break Yamato, he gets a new idea.
Said idea is to make memory clones of Sela and Tusk, strap bombs to all four and let the Zyuohgers try to figure out who the real ones are before the bombs go off in thirty minutes. Yamato, Leo and Amu decide to figure it out via a Japanese-style Quiz Show.
Split into two teams, one in Zyuman form and the other in Human form with the quizing eventually leading to the Human-form team coming up short. However the rest of the team correctly deduce that the perfect score Zyuman team are the fakes, as they would have perfect memories.
This is where Bang Ray’s true game begins, since the Zyuohgers would be forced to kill things that looked and acted like their friends. Knowing there was no other way, the Clone Sela and Tusk instead choose to sacrifice themselves, so the others would live. The Real Sela and Tusk, knowing that their clones were feeling like people as well, pledge to make Bang Ray pay for what he has done…
So yeah it was a Clip show, but it had a decent if sort of a goofy framing device, and further served to show what an EVIL BASTARD Bang Ray really is.
