"Ghost of a Chance Part I"

**Note:  Please Do NOT Use The Following Images Without My Permission**

The day begins with a monster named Mog attacking the citizens of Ocean Bluff. The Rangers soon arrive, and with the use of the Jungle Mace, Jungle Fan & Shark Sabers, Mog is taken down.
But the frog isn't out yet.  He grows large & the Rangers go to the Jungle Pride.  After using Elephant, Bat & Shark Power, Mog is destroyed. Dai Shi's training is progressing well, and he's now able to hold his own against Jellica.
Jellica is ready to destroy Camille after her latest failure, but Dai Shi saves her once again. With Dai Shi reaching a new level of evil, Carnisoar arrives and he & Jellica bring the Shadow Guards to life.  The Sky Overlord instructs Dai Shi to take them with him to destroy the Power Rangers.
When the heroes return to JKP, they are very pleased with their latest victory, but to keep their Ranger identities a secret, they tell Fran they were just bowling, much to her displeasure. The Rangers are called up to the loft by RJ.  They are so proud of themselves, they believe they've earned their Master Tattoos.  But RJ explains that over confidence can be a dangerous thing, and that they need to get back to basic training.
Dai Shi goes to the quarry with Camille & the Shadow Guards to lure the Rangers into battle. The training is interrupted by the sensors picking up on Dai Shi, but our heroes still believe they're unbeatable.
The Rangers arrive, Morph and then the battle is on. Yellow Ranger is the first to take on Dai Shi, while the others have their hands full with the Shadow Guards.
After the Yellow Ranger is beaten, the Blue Ranger jumps in and tries with his Jungle Fans. The Blue Ranger is beaten, leaving the Red Ranger to fight Dai Shi with his Shark Sabers, but the evil warrior is still too strong.
Not even the Strike Rider could stand up to Dai Shi's power. The Rangers regroup and try the Claw Cannon.
Only to have Dai Shi deflect the blast. After taking a blast from the Black Lion, the Rangers are de-morphed.
Before Dai Shi can finish the Rangers off, RJ jumps in and is ready for battle. Dai Shi explains that if RJ will surrender, he'll spare the Rangers his wrath.
RJ agrees and is taken away by the evil band. Dai Shi returns to the temple and shows his capture to Carnisoar & Jellica.  It is decided that Dai Shi will destroy RJ in the arena, in front of his masters.
The three have returned to the loft and are trying to figure out what to do.  Casey realizes that by going back to basics, they need to go back to the Forbidden Room at the Pai Zhuq school. Camille places RJ in a holding cell, but the Wolf Master remains his usual upbeat self.
The Rangers return to the Forbidden Room where they find the wall carvings of Master Phant, Swoop & Finn, as well as three other masters. Master Mao arrives and explains that the other three masters cannot be found.  They were defeated in the Great Battle and reside in the Spirit World.
After RJ is given his last meal, he continues to hope that the Rangers will do what is needed to save him. After the Rangers plead with him, Master Mao finally opens the door to the Spirit World. 
The Rangers arrive in the Spirit World, but instead of Palm Trees & Hula Girls, they're greeted by the three Masters, and the battle is on. The Rangers are beaten, and told that they should not have come to the Spirit World.

Linear Ranger's Thoughts

A great episode all around.  The Rangers overconfidence being their downfall is an excellent lesson, one I've had to learn the hard way many a time.  Dai Shi saving Camille again was good, as is his training finally paying off.  The lead up to Fran learning about the Rangers is being well executed.  RJ OWNS ALL, that's the best way to put it.  He's cool under pressure and an awesome warrior as well.  It was good to see the Strike Rider finally get used on something other than Rinshi.  I really enjoyed how the Rangers didn't waste time feeling sorry for themselves, but went looking for a way to get more power.  RJ's line, "He underestimates the Power Rangers," was great and very well delivered.  And last but certainly not least, Michelle Langston (Kay Manx from S.P.D) RETURNS as MASTER GUIN!  Let the rejoicing begin!
