Jason, Kimberly, Bulk, and Skull are rehearsing for the school play “Rumpelstiltskin.” The spinning wheel prop used in the play is a family heirloom that has been in Kimberly’s family for a hundred years. When Rita sees the wheel through her Repulsascope, she sends Goldar to steal it. She then casts a spell upon it, making the wheel evil with the power to destroy anything it touches – including the Rangers. Goldar and Scorpina are sent to begin a rampage on Earth.

When Rita sees that her monster might be defeated she sends down the wheel. Jason calls the power of the Ultrazord. It locks on the wheel and fires, then it suddenly disappears. To Kimberly’s, surprise her beloved grandmother’s spinning wheel re-appears and the play is a success.
