Toxica asks Retinaxe if it is really him. Jindrax says that he was Master Org's personal bodyguard and asks where he has been all these years. Retinaxe tells them that as he swore to protect the Master he has walked the Earth in shame as he failed and Master Org died. Retinaxe then says that he has heard that Master Org has returned and demands to know if this is true. Jindrax tells him that it is and Toxica offers to reunite him with Master Org. However Retinaxe says that he must prove himself first and defeat Master Org's arch nemesis in battle. Toxcia says that they know exactly who that is and tell him to come with them. Toxica and Jidnrax begin walking with him and Jindrax asks why Toxica is smiling.

Next time on Power Rangers Wild ForceEdit
- Nayzor looks at the full moon and some mirror's reflect its light to a coffin.
- Princess Shayla says that evil is emerging.
- Zen Aku emerges from the coffin and attacks the rangers before introducing himself.
Bloopers and Continuity ErrorsEdit
- Jindrax claims to have loved trains ever since he was "a little Org". Considering he is over 3000 years old, and trains were only invented a couple of centuries ago, this seems very unlikely.
- When the Rangers called for the Wild Force Megazord, they summoned their signature Zords, which descended from Animaria. However, the Black Bison and Yellow Eagle Wild Zords were already on the battlefield, as part of the Kongazord.
