Rita has a new scheme to destroy the White Ranger from the inside out. Finster creates the RAVENATOR, and Rita sends him into Tommy’s stomach via his food, making him ravenous for junk food. When the other Rangers seeTommy uncontrollably scarfing down unhealthy food, they are stunned. Zordon is consulted who tells them of the Ravenator and regretfully states that he cannot teleport Tommy into the Command Center with one of Zedd and Rita’s monsters inside of him. Aisha comes up with an idea. They bring a huge sundae to Tommy and immediately the monster demands that Tommy eats the entire sundae. Tommy uses incredible will power and resists the orders of the Ravenator. The monster comes out to get the treat himself, and when Rita and Zedd make him grow, he is defeated by the Shogun Megazord.
