Alyssa is riding on her bike and just misses some fallen boxes and a couple of women by jumping over them. She then arrives at class and the teacher breaks off some rock from a cave and explains that Turtle Cove was once in an inland sea. Alyssa suddenly hears the noise of an elephant but ignores it and the teacher says to find a spot to dig. Alyssa hears the noise again from inside the cave and enters to investigate. Alyssa sees a cavern on the wall of the cave and wipes to see the carving is a symbol, the same as on their ranger belt- buckles. As she does this Master Org, in the Nexus, feels the presence of the cavern being touched and laughs sinisterly.

Tire Org argues, naively saying the he has a chance to defeat the rangers, but Toxica condescendingly orders him to go after the other rangers whom the princess is with. Tire Org obeys and moves on. The rangers get up and Max asks why Tire Org is leaving and Taylor says that they must stop it and so the rangers run after it.

Cole is trying to use his Savage Cycle but having difficulty controlling it. Alyssa shows up and offers to help him again but Cole zooms off accidently.

Next time on Power Rangers Wild ForceEdit

  • Max throws a bottle into Turtle Cove and makes a wish however an Org emerges and he sees it has his bottle on it.
  • Max says he has been having dreams about the Megazord being defeated and that another Wild Zord is needed to help it.

("Wishes on the Water")


  • Danny Wayne, who had been providing the US in-suit appearances of Jindrax so far, takes over the role of voice of the character as well, replacing Richard Cansino. The reasoning was the producers felt the voice was too "old" for Jindrax, and Danny's portrayal had impressed them enough to do the rare thing and make a stunt actor a voice one as well.
