to be added




  • In Part I, Kimberly's Power Coin is present in her Morpher while she was morphed, despite the fact at that point it is still in the possession of Zedd and Rita. The fact she was able to morph without the Power Coin in the first place is incongruous with the setup of the Morpher concept.
  • In Part II, when the doctor says "It's a good thing you were able to call for help right away."; if you look in the corner of the screen the doctor's mouth can be seen and it's not moving. The line was obviously dubbed in later.
  • In Part II, the Rangers send Kat back into the hospital to wait with Kimberly as if that was offering her any extra protection.
  • In Part III, when Kat remembers her failed dive she is wearing a blue one-piece swimsuit instead of the pink one she'd worn during what was meant to be the same flashback from Part I. Later, when diving for Tommy and Kimberly, the footage shown is the same from the earlier flashback.
  • In Part III, Kimberly takes out her power coin from her communicator.


  • This is Kimberly's final appearance as the Pink Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger, though she will appear in the aired-out-of-order "I'm Dreaming of a White Ranger" and again in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.
  • Part I marks the only time Kimberly morphs since losing her Power Coin, as well as the final time overall.
  • Final use of the Shark Cycles including the only use of the pink one.
  • Part II is the only episode of this three-parter to use Sentai footage.
  • None of the Rangers appear morphed in Part III.
  • The footage of Kat doing her dive is recycled for Turbo's "When Time Freezes Over" during a time-rewind montage.
  • Part II marks the first time a hospital is shown on Power Rangers.
  • Archive footage of Kimberly is used in "Master Vile and the Metallic Armor, Part 2", and in Power Rangers Zeo's "There's No Business Like Snow Business, Part 1".
  • Part III is the last episode to have the Season 3 intro with Amy Jo Johnson.
