Blue and Pink Ranger are attacked by Grinataur's attack. Kevin and Mia are now hungry. Mike and Antonio attempt to protect their friends and get a taste of Grinataur's dirt. All of the Rangers, except Emily, are under the spell. At the Shiba House, the Rangers can't stop eatting. At the Sazu River, Serrataur is pleased with the Nighlok's success.

At Bulk's Garage, Bulk continues to encourage Spike to return the wallet. Spike imagines that he returns the wallet and she calls him a hero. Bulk and Spike arrive at the Shiba House.
