The current run of Power Rangers Beast Morphers is currently on hiatus stateside, but the new episodes from Season 2 are continuing to air in other regions across the world. That means lucky fans were able to watch the highly anticipated crossover episode "Grid Connection, which features the return of the original Red Ranger Jason played by Austin St. John. A new clip from the UK's Pop was captured by PwrRnger.com, and shows the start of a major battle against the foe Goldar Maximus. This features the morphs of the Dino Charge Rangers as well as the transformation of Jason into the Mighty Morphin' Red Ranger. The episode is expected to air on Nickelodeon in the future.
You can watch the video below, but beware of spoilers!
First though we get a clip of Devon heading into the Morphing Grid itself to send out a message for help, as Goldar Maximus is attempting to take over the Dino Charge dimension. The other Beast Morpher Rangers have been sent to their world to help, but Devon puts out a call through the Grid, and one Ranger answers the call.
That is none other than Jason, and Devon is floored. Jason asks why Devon needed help, and he fills him in on the situation, followed by offering Jason his Power Coin back. If you were waiting for a cool moment that showcases why Power Rangers has stayed around so long, this is it.
Things get better in the next clip though, as Jason leads the Dino Charge Rangers to the battlefield. They are confronted with Goldar and his army, but Jason quickly points out that what he sees in front of him is not an army. That's when more portals open up and the rest of the Mighty Morphin Rangers and the team of Dino Thunder Rangers head through, joining the lineup.
Jason says "this is an army", and then the Dino Charge Rangers morph. That's when Jason flips his coin in the air and then catches it, which is then followed by a full morph into the Red Ranger, and you've got to admit, it all came together pretty dang well.
You can watch both clips in the videos above.
