On Earth, Saandaru stands by a river thinking about Gozen and releases Madoogi out of his fan and sends her to investigate. The trio are happily hiking throught the forest and reach a temple. They believe this is where Gozen lives. They call for her and a stern man opens the door and shouts at them. He tells them that they are here to help clean up the temple.

A flash, then between and past the statues comes visible a glowing, crystalline green forcefield. Madoogi spies on them. Saandaru watches through Madoogi's eyes. He wonders if they will destroy the forcefield. He tells her to go. Madoogi sinks down into a shadow and it leaps into Isshu's shadow. The two brothers use their ninja powers to turn the statues and the forefield opens for them like a door. When they get in, the forcefield closes once again. The statues turn back into place. The duo walks forward an Madoogi's yellow eyes glow in Isshu's shadow. The temple man is drinking tea while the trio clean. Nanami wonders if cleaning the temple was all they were summoned here to do. They are also wondering that. Yousuke asks why Isshu and Ikkou aren't here. The man says something in English and they ask him if he know Shurikenger. He says he knows who he is. They ask him who he is. He offers them the bread he was eating. Then all the candidates for Shurikenger are shown.

The priest leaves, saying Gozen is calling him. The brothers arrive and Yousuke scolds Ikkou. Madoogi's shadow gets out of Isshu's shadow and her head peeks out of the darkness. Saandaru watches through her eyes and laughs.The trio realize the priest was Shurikenger. They then remember the monsters they fought in Episodes 5,8,9,12, and Ikki Kasumi witnessing the meteorites falling. His message to his sons on the Centipede. Clips continues of the Goraijer beating the Hurricanger up, the freezing of the Earth, the Goraijer fighting Chuzubo, then Kabuto fighting against his brother, Isshu revealing truths to the trio, Ikkou collapsing and apologizing to his brother for his actions.

Destroying the Fangerosu, meteors heaidng towards the Earth, Manmuarba becoming giant. The clips end, Ikkou comes back to reality. The others go into a mild panic as they assemble to greet Gozen, except Ikkou, who holds his place but stands at alert. They kneel before her. She explains that the two medals may be brought together to form a tremendously powerful weapon. Clips are shown of Saandaru, the world destroyer. Destroying the monster in Ep 40, Saandaru and the Seal Stone, sucking energy from the team in Ep 41, the stone becoming the medal and GainGain using the Raging Arrow. Back in real time, Yousuke points out that there is some concern for protecting the medal that resides inside Gozen-sama's body. She nods gravely at him, and the medal shines through the skin of her head. Sandaru sees it in shock and delight. He sends Madoogi into battle without a second thought. Shadow becomes solid, Madoogi targets Gozen and Isshu grabs her hand. He grabs her neck and fights her. He beats him and Ikkou down. The trio protect Gozen and throw Shurikens at her.
