Always a Chance
“Always a Chance” is the 22nd episode of Power Rangers in Space, the sixth season of the franchise. The episode is about the character of Carlos (who is now the Black Space Ranger. The cast carried over, aside from Blake Foster’s Justin), accidentally injuring Cassie, the Pink Space Ranger (Patricia Ja Lee), during a battle with a monster, the Lizwizard. He feels guilty and unsure of himself during a fight. Carlos gets ambushed by the Lizwizard, and due to his lack of confidence, he begins losing the fight. Things look bleak until a man comes out of no where and kicks the monster in the chest, knocking him to the ground. The monster retreats, and the man is revealed to be Adam (Johnny Yong Bosch), a past ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers until Power Rangers Turbo.
Adam trains Carlos and teaches him about the risks Rangers take, in order to protect others. During the episode, the Rangers are in danger, and Adam pulls out a severely damaged morpher. Knowing that using this morpher could kill him, Adam does it anyway and becomes the Mighty Morphin Black Ranger once again. However, due to his damaged state, he is unable to put up much of fight by himself, but with Carlos regaining his confidence, they are able to take care of Lizwizard together. It’s an episode grounded in the realities of those that put their lives on the line, in order to protect others and teaches kids that there’s always a chance at failure, but you shouldn’t be afraid to try. Plus, Adam’s return gave Mighty Morphin fans a lot of cause to be excited!
