Important things that happened[edit]

  • Mirai Sentai TimeRanger tribute episode and the past took place between Goseiger Epic 32 and 33.
  • As the Gokaigers have lunch, GouJyuDrill makes an unexpected appearance. After investigating his mecha's bridge, Gai finds a Time Emblem containing a video message from Domon, the former TimeYellow. He tells the Gokaigers to travel back in time to October 2, 2010, to protect the currently destroyed Negakure Shrine as it will lead them to another Grand Power. He also warns them not to interact with anyone in the past as it might cause some complications. They accept Domon's request, using the TimeYellow Ranger Key to take GouJyuDrill into the past.
  • Arriving to the temple, the Gokaigers find a young boy about to be attacked by thr Kyouka Nanashi. The group assumes they are responsible for the future destruction of the temple with Gai protecting the boy as the rest transform and chase after the Kyouka Nanashi when they are called for.
  • Eventually, the Gokaigers spot the Goseigers and Shinkengers during their battle with Chimatsuri no Buredoran's army of Nanashi Renjyuu and Biibi. They then notice Hone no Shitari gathering the Kyouka Nanashi, planning to ambush the two Super Sentai, deciding to return the favor to the teams for giving them their Grand Powers in the future by destroying him and his forces.
  • Back at the temple, Gai tries to take the boy home before learning the boy ran away from home due to his mother being a journalist who moves them around before the boy can make friends. Gai tells the boy that he was like him when he was little, always moving due to his own parents, but he always made friends in each place and despite knowing he might move, he would always have friends everywhere. He encourages the boy to make do with his situation and look forward to tomorrow.
  • By then, the Matroid Shot no Zan KT 0 arrives to destroy the temple under orders from Agent no Metal A to acquire the large energy presence detected inside. GokaiSilver fights Zan KT 0 before the other Gokaigers show up to deal with their true target by weakening him with the TimeRanger Ranger Keys before defeating him. However, Metal A notices this and uses the newly gained Biibi Bugs to enlarge Zan KT 0 to gather data on the Gokaigers. However, after Zan KT 0 is destroyed by GouJyuJin, Metal A decides to leave as improvement on the Zan KT schematics is more vital for the Matrintis Empire to eliminate the Goseigers.
  • The Gokaigers meet with the boy's mother and the boy, whose name is revealed to be Moriyama Mirai, thanks Gai for his words as the crew take a group picture of the temple with Mirai and his mother.
  • As the Gokaigers return to the present, they realize they never received the hint to the Grand Power which appears to be related to a strange bottle that is located inside the temple. In the future, Domon checks inside GouJyuDrill to finds his Time Emblem, along with a letter from Gai holding the group photo. Though disappointed that they interacted with the past, Domon is shocked when he recognizes the woman as his girlfriend, Moriyama Honami, and is moved to tears when he realizes Mirai is the son he never knew of. The implications being that he accidentally saves his son's life by having the Gokaigers save that temple where he was hiding.
