Power Rangers Ninja Steel was already set to debut overseas around July 31st, but it's dropped even earlier than that, kicking off with episode 9, Rocking And Rolling.
Spoilers for episode 9 incoming, so if you want to wait until the episode debuts stateside don't go any further. If not, happy reading, but just to disclose, this won't be a full recap. More like a highlight reel (via Power Rangers NOW).
Fans already knew Rocking and Rolling would heavily focus on the Gold Ranger, and indeed it does.
The episode begins with a new villain for the Rangers to fight, that being Stonedozer. Stonedozer can generate earthquakes. Things flash over to Levi, who is setting up for a show in Summer Cove. There is an appearance by the Burger Morpher here as well.
After an earthquake alerts the Rangers, they head off to figure out what caused it. Levi doesn't join them, continuing to prepare for his show. During this, the Rangers find out that Stonedozer's plan is to cause an earthquake under Levi's concert, but since he's already performing they can't warn him in time.
After Stonedozer creates the earthquake, the Power Rangers manage to rejoin with Levi and evacuate the concert goers. Next up is the fight against Stonedozer, where the team displays their new cloning power, though it isn't long before they have to call in the Bull Rider Megazord and the Rumble Tusk Megazord to finish the job.
By episode's end, it is revealed that Levi will be joining the other Rangers in school, and is delaying his world tour for the time being.
Expect more spoilers in the coming days for the next few episodes, as they are already airing in Spain at the moment, but will start airing in other locations as well.
Power Rangers Ninja Steel hits stateside on August 12, and you can find some spoiler images in the gallery.
