Super Samurai

The Samurai Rangers must seal up cracks in the ground where water from the Sanzu River is seeping in. Meanwhile, Arachnitor resurfaces and uses the water to prevent himself from drying out. At the Shiba House, Antonio works on the Black Box. After he completes it, he rushes to where the other Rangers are. The Rangers battle Arachnitor and Antonio finally makes it there. He informs Jayden and the others that he has finally unlocked the Black Box. Jayden uses this new power to access his Super Mode and defeat Arachnitor. Once Arachnitor grows into a mega monster, they use a new cannon to destroy Arachnitor. In a subplot Bulk and Spike attempt to record the Rangers battling the Nighloks on film, so that they can learn some of their moves.

Shell Game

The Rangers must defeat Armordevil, a hard-shelled Nighlok who proves to be a formidable opponent. Meanwhile, Antonio loses his Samurai Morpher without knowing, and the two wannabe Samurais (Bulk and Spike) find it. The Rangers combine their attacks in a certain order to weaken Armordevil's shell, and Kevin uses the Black Box to finish the Nighlok. In MegaZord mode, Armordevil's shell is fully restored, which proves difficult to break. The Rangers then repeat their first method of defeating Armordevil, but still is ineffective. The Samurais call the Claw Zord for the Claw Armor MegaZord, then the Samurai Battle Cannon, and finally finishes the battle once and for all. Afterwords, the wannabe Samurais put the morpher in the exact spot they found it. Mike and Emily show up moments later, relieved at Antonio's safety, and return his morpher from the ground. Antonio wonders what he missed all day.

Trading Places (1)

A new Nighlok named Switchbeast traps the spirits of four rangers while Mike and Emily try to defeat him to save the others. Jayden is a garden gnome, Kevin a ballerina music box, Mia as a fan, and Antonio (ironically) a fish he was going to eat. Switchbeast also traps the spirits of people at a public market in some of the items they were selling- including the wannabe samurais: Bulk and Spike into a soda can and a newspaper. Switchbeast does this to have the humans recycle his victims without knowing it, which will cause the misery of the people he switched to raise the Sanzu River. Mike and Emily manage to switch the Nighlok's spirit with Mike to make him force the spirits of everyone back into their own bodies. This works as even the Samurais return, but Antonio is traumatized when he escapes just as a stray kitten is about to eat the fish he was in. Mike goes Super Samurai and destroys Switchbeast, but with the Nighlok supersized, the two rangers must pilot their Claw Armor Megazord. The two rangers win and celebrate with their friends by having a barbecue. Meanwhile, Xandred is angered at this defeat, and throws a Furry Wart out a gap. The Furry Wart meets Dayu on a river stream as Dayu plans to find a way to end Master Xandred's life for casting her out and breaking her harmonium.

Something Fishy (2)

A depressed Antonio sits in front of a lake when he gets a distress call from Jayden, stating they need his help. While the Rangers are fighting some Moogers, Antonio appears and Morphs. He pulls out the Barracuda Blade, and cringes in fear at the sight of it. After the Moogers are defeated the Rangers make sure Antonio is okay and Antonio reveals he's scared of fish. Meanwhile at the Sanzu River a new villain, Serrator appears and offers help to Master Xandred in his plans and reveals that he was the one who sent Switchbeast to Master Xandred. Master Xandred is skeptical at first but when Serrator proves his loyalty to him he is accepted. Back at the Shiba House the team tries to help Antonio out with aversion therapy, Jayden is afraid of spiders, Mike is claustrophobic, and Mia is afraid of frogs. After that attempt fails, the Gap Sensor goes off and the Rangers rush into action. Antonio stays behind, and Ji shows him the LightZord, an ancient Zord that no Ranger has been able to master and Ji asks Antonio to see if he can unlock it. The Rangers deal with two Spitfangs before Serrator destroys the monsters and personally tests the Samurai rangers' fighting skills. Serrator effortlessly defeats the Rangers in battle. At the last second, Antonio arrives with the Lightzord to drive Serrator off before enlarging Lightzord to take out the Papyrox. Later on the Rangers ask Antonio how he got over his fear, he tells them and they laugh as it is shown that Ji had snuck up behind Antonio and stuffed a sushi in his mouth having him eat it. In a subplot Bulk and Spike attempt to rescue the stray kitten from the top of a tree but end up getting stuck there themselves.

The Rescue

At the Shiba House, with Antonio having conquered his fear of fish Mike and Emily decide to keep the stray kitten as a pet. The rangers are surprised to see Antonio and Mentor Ji working collaboratively to create the Shark Disk with the Light Zord. Mike plays a prank on Antonio by putting dry cat food in Antonio's plate of trail mix but is caught by Mentor Ji who gives Mike a taste of his own medicine before deciding to continue working on the Disk outdoors, free of distractions. Meanwhile at the Sanzu River, Octoroo announces the return of the powerful Nighlok Eyescar to Master Xandred, who has a plan to trap the rangers. Upon completing the Shark Disk, Antonio and Mentor Ji are kidnapped by a swarm of Moogers. With the Gap Sensor sounding the rangers head to investigate their disappearance. While following the trail left by Antonio the Rangers are ambushed by a large amount of Moogers. Mike figures out there is something within the Light Zord and unleashes it which turns out to be the Shark Disk. This allows Jayden to access Shark Attack Mode to destroy all the Moogers effortlessly. Eyescar eagerly awaits the arrival of the Rangers with his massive Mooger army, outnumbering the Rangers a hundred to one but Jayden having anticipating the situation, enters the fray with the Samurai Battlewing destroying most of the Moogers with an aerial assault. The Rangers then move in and rescue Mentor and Antonio before defeating Eyescar together. When Eyescar returns to life as a mega monster the Rangers use the Shark Sword to finish him off. Back at the Shiba House Mentor Ji and Antonio thank the rest of the team for their help and Mike attempts to try the same prank again on Antonio only to be caught by Mentor again. In a subplot Bulk and Spike try to create signature symbols for each other.

 The Bullzord

A boy named Cody unleashes the first Samurai Zord called the Bullzord (which has been guarded by Cody's family since its first appearance), which runs amok across the countryside, causing the Rangers to find a way to catch the Bullzord and get it under control. Meanwhile, Serrator sends Crustor to capture the Bullzord so that he can use it in an unknown plot.

He Ain't Heavy Metal, He's My Brother

Mia's younger brother Terry comes to town and tries to convince Mia to sing in his band as part of his performance at a children's hospital. Mia is reluctant to help Terry as her parents want Terry to get into med school. Meanwhile, Serrator begins his next attack on Earth, which overwhelms the others until Mia shows up and drives him away, in order to bring his plan into fruition. At the same time, Bulk and Spike try to form their own musical act. Antonio and Mia sing at the concert together.

Kevin's Choice

Kevin loses his Samuraizer in an attack by the Nighlok Skarf while out in town near the local swimming center where a swim meet is being held. There, he reunites with one of his old swim team members and begins to have thoughts that he should return to swimming, as his friend is not as good as he was, and his Samuraizer is still missing. Mike calls Kevin's Samuraizer so they can track down Skarf, discovering the Samuraizer is in the Nighlok's arm. Elsewhere, Dayu finds a part of Deker's Uramasa as she is approached by Serrator who tells her where she can find Deker so they can serve under him in exchange for Dayu's harmonium and Deker's Uramasa getting fixed. Dayu and Deker enter the fray with Skarf so Deker (who is wielding a different sword) may fight Jayden in his Super Samurai mode. However, Dayu and Deker end the fight prematurely by destroying Skarf (since Serrator mentioned that the destruction of Skarf can unlock his secondary power), giving the Rangers the chance to retrieve Kevin's Samuraizer. When the Nighlok enlarges, he gains a shield, forcing the Rangers to form the Samurai Gigazord for the first time, with Jayden using Shogun mode to break through the shield and destroy the Nighlok. Later, Kevin goes to the swim meet to see his old friend win after using Kevin's advice.

Runaway Spike

Bulk tries training Spike to be a Samurai until the mail arrives and they find out that the rent is overdue. Meanwhile, The rangers battle Duplicator who overwhelms the rangers with his clones until he is forced to retreat. Spike gets fired from all three jobs that he tried and Mia talks to him and he reveals to her that he wants to be a samurai so she tells him to never give up. Back at the Shiba house, the Rangers are talking about the Nighlok and Mia comes back and also tells them to never give up. They figure out that the LightZord can help them which they use to defeat Duplicator when the LightZord finds the shadow of the real Duplicator. After Duplicator comes back as a mega monster, Mia uses the Shogun Disk to access Shogun mode and fires the battle cannon to finish him off. Bulk and Spike end up getting a job catching fish for Antonio.

The Strange Case of the Munchies

At the Shiba House, Kevin watches as Emily and Mike train. Kevin tells Emily that she needs to be more tough. Mia tells Emily about a sale at the mall where she buys an outfit that makes her look tough. Mia accidentally drops her wallet at the mall without knowing and it is found by Bulk and Spike, who attempt to return it. At the Sanzu River, Serrator tells the Nighlok Grinataur about his mission, to make the humans eat, eat and eat until they burst. Grinataur manages to put the rangers (save Emily) under the eating spell. Mentor Ji tries to help out the rangers with their uncontrollable hunger but to no avail. Bulk and Spike discover the Shiba House's location from Mia's Drivers license and ask Mentor Ji, if they can train there. Mentor Ji puts Emily in charge of training Bulk and Spike to be Samurai which is harder than they thought. In the end, Emily destroys Grinataur on her own and since the other rangers don't remember anything Mentor and Emily tell them that it was the toughest day ever.

A Sticky Situation

During training, Jayden mentions to Kevin and Mike that if they were to work together they would both be twice as strong. The Gap Sensor then sounds, and the Rangers encounter the Nighlok Epoxar. During the fight, Mike and Kevin get their hands glued together by Epoxar before Antonio shows up and drives him off. After a few attempts to cut the glue off, the Rangers realize that defeating Epoxar is the only way to separate Kevin and Mike. Though the two men attempt to prove that they are able to fight in light of the literal sticky situation, they are told to stay behind. While Kevin and Mike eventually get along, the others train to deflect Epoxar's glue until the Nighlok returns to glue every person he comes across to something or to each other. Following the others, Kevin and Mike watch their teammates fall into Epoxar's trap. With Kevin following Mike, the two transform and manage to slay Epoxar, negating the Nighlok's glue. Claw Zord and Bull Zord arrive to hold back Epoxar with Light Zord's support before they destroy him. Meanwhile Serrator promises to fix Deker’s sword Uramasa and Dayu’s Harmonium in return for their services and he provides them with temporary weapons. Back At the Shiba House Mike and Kevin show everyone what an excellent team they make by sorting the groceries out together until they accidentally end up dropping the eggs.

Trust Me

After learning of possible Nighlok activity on an island called Monalua, the Rangers travel to investigate. Upon arriving they split up into three groups. Kevin and Emily encounter a young boy who tells them of an ash causing the villagers to become extremely paranoid. Meanwhile, Master Xandred, Octoroo, and the Nighlok Malden test out their new Master Blaster inventions to be used on the Rangers. After warning the others via their Samuraizers, they attempt to regroup to form a plan but are ambushed by Dayu. Elsewhere, Serrator ambushes Antonio and Mike, and taunts them over the fact that they’re still using swords and Deker attacks Jayden and Mia, noting that Jayden has become weaker upon relying on his teammates in battle rather than fighting solo. This distracts him and allows Deker to injure him until Mia takes him out of the battle and into safety. Meanwhile at the Sanzu River the Nighlok Maldan demonstrates his newly developed laser blaster weapon to Master Xandred, with Maldan's Mooger Squad using the weapon for target practice. Still enraged by Deker’s words, Jayden runs off to fight Deker, again, with Mia in tow. They arrive at a mountain guarded by Deker and Dayu that is producing the ash infecting the village. Mia fights Dayu as Ranger Pink, as the rest of the Rangers arrive. Just then, Maldan appears with his Mooger Blaster Squad. The Rangers use their speed to get close enough the Moogers to take them out until Antonio gets gunned down by the Mooger’s reinforcements who overwhelm the rest of the team. At the last second, Mentor Ji arrives with the Bullzooka (a gift from Cody) and utilizing the Bullzooka, Jayden destroys Maldan and his Mooger squad. When Maldan revives the others hold him off while Jayden destroys the source of the ash and thus breaking Serrator's hold on the island. Serrator then takes Deker and Dayu away, leaving a Papyrox and a pair of Spitfangs to keep the Rangers at bay. The team then forms Claw Armor Megazord to destroy the spitfangs and eventually needing to use Samurai Gigazord to destroy the Papyrox. Having freed the island the Rangers head back home.

The Master Returns

Jayden has doubts about his ability to be Red Ranger and ends up taking his anger out on the team during training. While this occurs, Master Xandred has Octoroo demand Dayu's Harmonium from Serrator. Serrator takes Octoroo to where he hid the instrument and then attacks him, revealing that he has no intention of handing the Harmonium over and his deception of Master Xandred is over. This causes Octoroo to retreat and cause the Gap Sensor to detect his movement. Sensing her Harmonium’s presence, Dayu makes her way to Serrator's location just as the Rangers arrive to fight him and are outmatched. Using the Harmonium as a shield, Serrator overpowers Dayu until an enraged Master Xandred arrives in the human world to annihilate both him and the Rangers, even if he is destroyed in the process from rapid dehydration. Serrator loses the Harmonium and escapes, leaving the Rangers to fight Master Xandred, who effortlessly defeats them all. Jayden in Super Mode then takes on Master Xandred, one on one but is still no match. After repairing Dayu's Harmonium, the nearly dried out Master Xandred is dragged back into the Netherworld by Octoroo, who leaves the Colossal Mooger Cannon Company to finish off the Rangers. Emily watches over an unconscious Jayden, leaving the other Rangers led by Kevin to defeat the Moogers. Kevin uses Shogun Mode to finish the job. As the severely wounded Jayden is taken back to the Shiba House, Master Xandred is dropped into the depths the Sanzu River to regain his strength, leaving Serrator to take over his ship with no opposition.
