"This potion will make Lord Zedd fall in love with me!" Rita announced to Baboo, holding a glass vial in her hand and smiling diabolically at the thought of her brilliant plan.
"Then he won't ever vanish me again!"
It was indeed her plan that they should marry, but had to bid her time carefully to avoid any suspicions which might ruin her plans. She offered the vial to Baboo, who carefully held it.
"Put it away where it will be safe!" Rita instructed, turning back to her enchantments, and Baboo stepped away to fulfill his duty.
Before he could do so, however, he was distracted by the announcement of yet another containment of putty patrollers being defeated,
and Rita commanded him to travel to Earth at once with a new group, to make sure they got rid of those annoying brats who always ruined her plans.
Babboo followed her orders, traveling to Earth with a new group of henchmen, carrying the vial in his belt.
Witnessing the attack against the Power Rangers, he was sure of their inevitable doom.
He refused to fight alongside Rita's henchmen, staying at the back and barking orders until the rest of the army was defeated bit by bit, finding himself alone and surrounded.
Desperate to find a way out, he reached for his belt and began throwing anything he could find at the colored uniformed teenagers,
the vial smashing against one of them and shattering into a million pieces.
He took advantage of the confusion to finally make his escape, leaving the Black ranger covered in the purple, gooey liquid.
"Zack, are you alright?!" Trini yelped, rushing toward her friend with concern. His suit was unharmed, but he seemed unresponsive. "Zack?!"
Back at the Command Center, and out of their uniforms, the group gathered with concern around a dazzled Zack, who was being examined by Alpha 5.
"Zack, can you hear us?" Trini asked once more, leaning as Zack finally focused his gaze on her. He opened his eyes wide and nodded, staring at her as if he was seeing her for the first time.
"You are beautiful" He whispered, looking fascinated at the dark-haired girl, who blushed furiously and looked around in confusion at her other teammates.
"Uh, thank you? Are you feeling ok?"
"Never better!" He replied, sitting straight up, and staring at her as if there was no one else in the room. "I-I think I love you!"
There was a stunned silence in the room as everyone exchanged confused looks.
"I have the results of the substance found on the Black Ranger's uniform!"
Alpha 5 announced, and everyone turned to face him except Zack, who kept staring at Trini with a wide-eyed stare and a goofy smile. "It's a love potion."
"A love potion? Is that a thing?" Kimberly asked, stunned, but Zack's enamored smile brushed away any doubts "So... what do we do now?"
"Since Zack didn't drink it and as only in contact with it, it should only last a few days" Zordon announced through the intercom system.
"Oh, no! And what are we supposed to do till then?" Trini yelped, blushing as Zack reached out to hold her hand.
"I don't know. Maybe go on a date?" Kimberly joked, prompting the rest of the group to chuckle, and Trini to groan lightly.
