Two Rangers have disappeared and none at the Command Center know how to find them. They can only watch in horror as Tommy tries to destroy his best friend. Bulk and Skull get sucked into that very dimension too and make an ally of a fellow prisoner named Tritor who has a plan to help them escape. While amused at first by the fight, Rita and Zedd realize the horrifying truth that if something isn’t done, the Machine Empire will be victorious. They also realize if the Machine Empire succeed and find out they’re back on the Moon, they could force Zedd and Rita back in exile again. Despite their desire to personally destroy the Rangers, they aid the Rangers in getting what they need.
