Kimberly’s sudden nastiness alarms the Power Rangers. During new club week at the Youth Center, a Putty switches Kimberly’s cactus plant with a poisonous one. Lord Zedd sends BLOOM OF DOOM to Kimberly’s garden to spew fiery pollen. The Power Rangers morph and Zordon gives Kimberly a special weapon — a ribbon which she uses to wrap around the monster like a vine. Trini tries to obliterate BLOOM OF DOOM with her Power Dagger, but the monster disappears instantly. BLOOM OF DOOM grabs Kimberly with its vines and traps her in a cactus-like dimension. Trini throws her dagger to break the spell, and the BLOOM enlarges. The Power Rangers form Mega Thunderzord, and, with the Mighty Power Sword, destroy the flower in a blizzard of sparks.
