"Stuck on Christmas" is the Christmas episode of Power Rangers Super Samurai (the second season of Power Rangers Samurai). It is the second Christmas episode of the show, following "Christmas Together, Friends Forever" and the fifth overall for the Power Rangers franchise.[1] It made its broadcast premiere on Nickelodeon Canada on December 8, 2012, followed by its US broadcast premiere on December 15th of the same year.

Synopsis

The episode begins with Mentor Ji decorating the Christmas tree without the Rangers, who went out to deal with a named Gred. The theme song plays.

Gred deals a heavy blow on the Rangers with his attack, but Mike runs to him and fights pretty aggressively. He uses his forest spear to attack the Nighlok and the group finishes him off using the 5-disk Beetle Cannon. Gred enlarges himself but the Rangers still defeat him with the Battlewing Megazord. As the Rangers prepare to leave for Christmas, the Megazord powers down. Mike gets worried that they might miss Christmas Eve, so Kevin gets to work. He comments how he wishes Antonio were here, so Jayden reminds Kevin how he can also come up with brilliant ideas.

Meanwhile, Mentor Ji is still decorating when Bulk and Spike come to deliver a present to Mia. The two get scared that the "drill sergeant" (Emily) might be here, and they have a flashback from when they first met her.

As Kevin is working, Mike asks if he can help, and they remember when they were stuck together. Kevin agrees (albeit reluctantly) to let Mike help him. Emma and Mia begin reminiscing what they want to wear for Christmas and have their flashbacks as well. Jayden calls Mentor Ji to tell them they'll be late for Christmas due to the Megazord not working. Meanwhile, Bulk and Spike are helping decorate the Christmas tree since they never had one of their own. Mike gets more worried, but the girls remind him that they are always together.

Meanwhile, Bulk and Spike tell Ji how sometimes they "help" the Power Rangers and they have their flashbacks as well. Spike then remembers how Mia helped them pay their rent.

At last, Kevin finally fixes the Megazord and the team prepares to return home. Jayden gives Ji a call. While Bulk and Spike were asleep, Ji asks Jayden and the others if they can do him a favor. When the two wake up, they want to leave quickly because they didn't want to see the "drill sergeant." But instead, Ji introduces them all to the Power Rangers. The two leave excitedly. The episode ends with the Rangers going to celebrate Christmas and Bulk and Spike chasing Santa on the moon, just like last year.

Notes

  • Despite airing after the series ended, this episode takes place before the events of the final storyline, as there's no sign of Lauren Shiba, the female Samurai Red Ranger, as well as the existence of the series' antagonists.
  • Despite its placement in the series, due to the fact that the episode is based on an earlier episode of its source material, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, Antonio is only seen in flashbacks as his counterpart, Genta, had not been introduced at that point.

Availability

The episode was strangely not included on the Power Rangers Super Samurai: The Complete Series DVD and Blu-ray sets. Instead, it made its home video debut on the Power Rangers Super Samurai: A Christmas Wish DVD, released by Lions Gate Entertainment on October 8, 2013. The DVD also contained the earlier Power Rangers Christmas special Alpha's Magical Christmas and the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers episode "Forever Friends".
