Ryou is the only one distrubed by this. The bank men take the money from the greedy Shouji. The robber don a strange face and hair, confirming Ryou's fears that he is indeed a Gorma.
Ryou and Shouji transform and the possessed robber beat them up. A flying disc stops the villain. It comes from Grandmaster Yufang, he taunts them with the Dairinken.
They chase after him but can't find him. With Ryou's description, Lin races to her apartment and they follow her. The bewildered boys find out the old man is Lin's uncle.Yufang seemingly cleaned the apartment but then a mountain of junk come out of a closet.
Master Kaku arrives and salutes his sensei, who taught him in the ways of the Dai and created the Aura Changers. The boys are in great disbelief. The boys leave in wonder while Yufang makes food, even cutting onions with a Dairinken. Lin digs for more information about her uncle's fiancee.
The Kabuki Priestling makes a show which the Triumvirate witness and summon meek smiles. They send him off on his mission. He invades a construction worker and drills into the bank in front of them.
He goes inside the bank and possesses the guard that was trying to stop him. The construction worker runs out screaming. The possesssed guard starts shooting up. He then takes the body of a vendor and the Dairangers try to stop him. The vendor trips and the monster falls out. The Dairanger chase after him but he disappears. They can't find him anywhere.
Another bank is being apprehended and has caught the attention of many including Shoji and Ryou. Shouji and Ryou chase the culprit up the stairs of a building. He threatens them with a gun.
All the Dairangers reach the roof and the robber, of course, turns out to be the Gorma. They transform to fight him but can't beat him.
Shoji and Ryou disagree on how to fight him. The Dairanger try to subdue him to no avail. They want no harm to come to the man.
When he cowers in fear, Yufang arrives and fights the man. The man falls off the building and ends up to be really dead.
Yufang seems unphased by this and runs off to get the monster, who still hasn't been seen. The Dairanger remain at the scene of the incident and the police arrive.

Comments:
  • This episode deliciously makes the viewer believe Yufang is a shady figure. Even though the man was a bank robber, he still did not deserve to die.
