A Ranger Catastrophe
Follow that Cab!
Finster has discovered the location of the lost Ancient Zords! In order to bring them to life for their own evil purposes, Rita & Zedd will need some unwilling assistance from the Power Rangers. First, while the Tengas distract the teens from a relaxing day at the beach, Rita's enthralled pawn Katherine steals the Pink Ranger's Power Coin! With it, she'll be able to sneak aboard the Falconzord and ambush the White Ranger when Ninjor needs his help most, facing a giant Goldar! Will our heroes fall for this plot, and can Kimberly survive for long with her Coin in the hands of evil?

- Ninjor and the Falconzord fall into the hands of Zedd and Rita in this episode which in turn renders the other five Ninjazords inoperable, (but not the Ninja Powers as Zordon had stated would happen if Ninjor was captured in Ninja Quest). They would not be used again until "Master Vile and the Metallic Armor".
- Part 3 marks the only time Lord Zedd ever fought a Ranger directly.
- First appearance of the Shogunzords which are the first sets of individual warrior zords.
- First and only time Ninjor fights giant size in American footage.
Lord Zedd: Are those 'hi-yeahs' really necessary?
Tommy: Okay, Zedd, the power source is on the other foot. I dare ya to produce your monster now.
Lord Zedd: He dares me, does he?! (grabs Rita's staff) Here, Tommy! A present from me to you! Make my monster grow!
See Monster: Sorry we don't see eye-to-eye here!
Lt. Stone: Gentlemen, your latest stunt, Angel Grove Lake, has elevated ineptitude to new heights.
Bulk: But, Lieutenant, y'see we can explain. We were just—
Lt. Stone: Quiet, Bulkmeier! I've heard all the excuses! I find it very odd that you two are the only ones in Angel Grove outside of the Power Rangers to face-off with a different monster every week!
Skull: Lieutenant Stone, it's true. Every time we turn around, well, (sputters) there they are.
Lord Zedd: Oh, Alpha, you can come out of hiding.
Alpha 5: I don't like you, Ed.
Lord Zedd: IT'S ZEDD, YOU BLINKING BUCKET OF BOLTS! LORD ZEDD!
(usually the argument he has with Rito)
