3. The green candle
When she was captured by Rita, the material that had encased Tammy was actually some magic wax, which was linked to her Morphing Powers. By turning the wax into a Green Candle, Rita was able to ensure that as the candle burned, her powers would slowly fade away, and when the candle burnt out, she would reclaim her powers for good. As the candle would burn faster if Tammy was in it’s vicinity, Rita commanded Goldar to kidnap Tammy and take her to the Dark Dimension where the candle would be kept. Goldar kidnapped Tammy and brought her to the Dark Dimension. However, Tammy was able to grab Goldar’s sword during their fight and sent herself back to earth. Rita responded by sending a shape shifting Cyclops monster after the Rangers. While the other Rangers went to retrieve the candle, Tammy decided that she would fight the monster alone. Tommy went into Rita’s Dark Dimension to stop the candle from burning but was unable to do so due to Goldar’s intervention. With Tammy using all her strength to fight the Cyclops monster, Jason and the Rangers had to return to help her, but the Green candle quickly burned out. Before all was lost, Zordon told Tammy to give her Power Coin to another ranger with a strong link to the Morphin Grid to prevent Rita from getting it’s powers. Tammy chose to pass her Dragon Coin on to Jason. The Red Ranger could now draw up on the remnants of the Green Ranger Powers to use the Dragon Shield in battle and the Dragon Dagger to Summon the Dragonzord.
Tammy said her goodbyes to the teammates, but they assured Tammy that she’d always be a Power Ranger in spirit. Tammy assured Tommy that it wasn’t his fault for not retrieving the Green Candle as he tried his best to. Even though Tammy was no longer the Green Ranger she still managed to stay friends with the rest of the Rangers and maintained her relationship with Tommy.
