As Angela’s birthday approaches, Zack would like to win her affections again by buying her a pair of pearl earrings. Unaware that the earrings he has purchased are actually the pearls of stillness from the Oyster Bed of Destruction, Zack gives Angela the earrings during a double date with Tommy and Kimberly. Having been forewarned of the pearls, Trini, Jason, and Billy rush to stop Zack, but they arrive as Angela tries the earrings, causing the entire restaurant to be completely paralyzed. Zack and Tommy are in the men’s room during this incident and arrive back to find they are the only ones who can stop the “Oysterizer,” which has just been released into the ocean by Rita. The two Rangers face the Oysterizer, and while Zack manages to shoot the pearl on top of its head, thereby breaking the spell at the restaurant, the battle leaves Tommy injured on the beach. The Rangers form the Megazord and go into the ocean to battle the Oysterizer, where they get a heavy beating. A weak Tommy calls the Dragonzord and destroys the Oysterizer and the Ecocide pearl that controls it.
