Astronema orders the citizens of Angel Grove to hand over the Power Rangers. Everyone declares themself a ranger, infuriating her; however, the real rangers arrive and morph in front of everyone. Inspired by the rangers, Bulk and Skull lead the citizens in a charge against Astonema’s army. Andros has also snuck aboard the Dark Fortress in hopes of reverting Astronema to Karone; he discovers Zordon held captive. Zordon wants his containment tube shattered to release a purifying wave at the cost of his life. Astronema attacks, accidentally having Andros reflect a blast back at her. Ecliptor tries killing Andros in revenge, forcing Andros to comply with Zordon’s order. The energy wave spreads across the universe, reducing the United Alliance of Evil to dust, while Rita, Zedd and Divatox are turned into humans. While the rangers are celebrated as heroes, Andros cries over his sister; his tears revert her to Karone.
