Episode 9: “Kamen Rider Thrust”

Story By Steve Wang, Nathan Long and Michael Wang

Written by Nathan Long

Directed by John Fasano

Summary: Len pushes Maya through a car back to Earth. Kamen Rider Thrust gives Len back his Advent Deck for a fair fight. Maya watches Thrust and Wing Knight fight through the car's reflection. Trent and Lacey can't find Maya, and Trent is worried that something has happened to her. Kamen Rider Strike observes the fight. Kamen Rider Thrust wants to win the Battle Club Tournament. Wing Knight explains that this isn't a tournament, it's a war. Thrust wants to win to get his life back. Thrust uses "Strike Vent" (with 2,000 Attack Points), summons a gauntlet (Metal Horn). Wing Knight tries to explain to Thrust that he's been lied to, the man who gave him the Advent Deck tricked him into fighting Wing Knight, but Thrust doesn't believe him. Wing Knight explains that whatever he promised him, it isn't real. But Thrust wants to believe that it's real. Trent calls Maya, but Maya doesn't answer her cellphone. Maya calls Kit at his home. The Answering Machine picks up, Kit and Drew hear Maya say that Len is in trouble, and that Len is the good guy and Drew is the one working for Xaviax. Drew and Kit ride to the scene.

Grant prepares to make his move, but Drew and Kit show up again. Kit tries to explains to Grant that he's been lied to, but Grant and Drew transform and fight. Thrust sees Torque and Camo fighting and wonders how many of them he's gonna have to beat to win the tournament. Trying to convince Camo that he's been lied to, Kit explains to them that Xaviax has been tricking the other Riders, offering each one something they want, and everyone who's after Wing Knight is working for Xaviax. Kit then finally realizes that Drew really is the one working for Xaviax. Torque congratulates Kit and thanks him for playing, then points his Giga Launcher at them. With Torque pulling out his guns, Camo decides that he's done for now and walks off. But Torque fires his Launcher and strikes him in the back. Camo is down, Kit transforms to Dragon Knight to try helping him. Torque then uses Final Vent, and Camo is Vented. Thrust wonders what just happened. Wing Knight explains that he lost. Thurst explains that nobody said anything about being disintegrated, and decides to leave. Torque attacks Dragon Knight. Wing Knight uses Final Vent to stop Torque, but it doesn't hit head on, Torque escapes back to Earth. Alien Xaviax shows up next to Kamen Rider Strike and watches as Dragon Knight helps Wing Knight back to Earth. Kit apologizes to Len for not trusting him. Maya asks to help take Len to his home, but Len explains that he has no home on Earth. So Kit and Maya help Len to her car to head for Kit's place.
