Picking right up, we find Deathdark still trying to build their Dark Hole Device. The team is on the lookout, though, must to Deathgiller and Desmark’s dismay.
Desmark has finally had it. Goggle Five have been a thorn in his side for too long. He decides to take the battle to them. To do this, he enlists the aid of Mazurka. He convinces her that if she’ll be infused with Hitron Energy, then she’ll be able to turn invisible and thus infiltrate the Control Room at the Future Science Lab. Little does Mazurka know that Desmark is playing her and intends to use her as a suicide bomber.
There is a Mozu here, and he looks like he fell through time from the age of Turboranger or Carranger, or maybe even Go-onger. He’s able to get near the base, though, just long enough to draw out the team. Mazurka slips in unnoticed, but the effects of the Hitron Energy begin to take their toll on her body. She does manage to reach the Control Room, though, letting Deathgiller and the Madaramen in. They make their way to the Control Room and destroy all the equipment and Deathgiller is surprised to find Mazurka still alive. After telling her of Desmark’s plan, he bolts, intending to detonate the bomb and destroy everything. The team catches him, though, and forces him back into the Control Room. After a brief skirmish, Mazurka ends up with the detonator.
As she presses the button, thus ending her life, you can’t help but feel sorry for Mazurka. She possessed a good streak, even if it were an act at times. I’m sure if the stars had aligned in her favor, she would have been a teacher, a scientist, maybe even a member of the Future Science Laboratory. Alas, that was not to be. Her lot in life demanded that she be a pawn of Deathdark, blindly following the orders of Deathgiller, Desmark and Taboo. At least now she’s with Drs. Zazoryia and Iguana, wherever misunderstood henchmen go when they die. Rest in Peace, Mazurka. You’ve earned it, even if you did take an entire science complex with you.
