I first need to talk about Torin as he got a whole lot better since episode one. I still remember his genius plan of making a sentai by not having the team know each other, but hey it all worked out anyways. Torin actually steps into the fight for this episode and that was great. There were also some good story moments with him which I will get to later. Torin is being more reliable now as he is actually helping out the team more than he used to. There is an explanation on why he doesn't fight as much as it seems he is low on power. I guess this could because of age since he wasn't revived like the Debos army was. Overall seeing Torin doing more things in an episode is a huge plus since he was just in the shadows most of the time and let his warriors do more than just the fighting at times.
Now for Dogold and if you have watched Gaoranger you will know this story pretty well. Unlike the Loki arc in Gaoranger that had some good depth with the character this time it's pretty simple. I mean the show makes it very obvious as I was predicting this since I heard his name. Dogold, you know what's in his name, GOLD! Now I will say I did like seeing Dogold having an inner confrontation with himself as things did seem odd for a revived warrior. At first I thought he had just forgotten since it did seem like he died in the past. Here's the story, the warrior who was Kyoryu Gold was actually possessed by Dogold as was just the armor now. This is revealed when the team fully sees a human face in Dogold. Then the face part of the armor starts to talk as this is Dogold. The whole time they had Utsusemimaru be in control because he got angry a whole lot easier. This is because he has no idea of what is happening to him, but this backfires as Dogold doesn't even start to fight back.The thing I have to question though if Dogold can still act as armor why didn't he just do the fighting?
Another big flaw in this episode was how the reveal was done, since just talking about it made it obvious that a plot twist was going to happen. I mean having Ustsu (yea I'm not typing the full name over and over again) not being found after a battle just means he was going to come up very soon. I mean we are nine episodes in and we already get to see what Kyoryu Gold looks like. I mean this is very early and I know episode ten will be when he comes to the team. So ten episodes in and we get a six reveal, what is this Power Rangers? I know sixth warriors have been coming in the teen numbers, but the first one? Also another thing I would to mention is when Dogold's armor was being cracked up they started to use a different helmet and it's very obvious! Was it that hard to make the same helmet? The worst thing about this reveal is that the only thing we know about Ustsu is that he got really mad because he wanted revenge for his fallen comrades and he gets taken. Overall the big reveal is way too early as it just seems forced as this could have been saved up for a big arc.
Next Time: The (I so hope it will be a) golden reveal
