Episode 17: “The Power of Three”

Story By Steve Wang, Nathan Long and Michael Wang

Written by Scott Phillips

Directed by John Fasano

Summary: Strike is attacking Sting. Sting is unable to fight back due too his asthma. But luckily, Len and Kit arrive in time, and Strike retreats.

Chris tells them that he can't fight and wants to just step back out of their way while they continue fighting, but Len and Kit explain to Chris that they need him, Len explains that a team is always stronger together.

JTC returns to Xaviax's lair. Xaviax has found his next recruits - the Cho brothers. Xaviax explains that the Cho brothers are very enthusiastic, but not bright. The Cho brothers are stealing two motorcycles to make some money. A passing guard spots them, so Danny Cho kicks him hard, knocking him out. Xaviax prepares to pay his new recruits a visit.

Back at Grace's Books, Lacey wants to have a talk with Maya, but then Kit, Len and Chris walk in. Maya takes them in the back to talk, so Lacey leaves. Maya explains that JTC is more than a hacker, but also a UFO conspiracy theorist. Len tells Maya he wants to meet him, so Maya sends JTC an instant message to meet with her. But then, Michelle Walsh walks in. So Maya has them go before she sees them. Maya takes her computer and heads out from the back room. Michelle tells Maya that she didn't expect her to get fired, but needed a little lesson about not faking evidence. But Maya explains that she wasn't faking evidence, she was baiting a trap for...was researching a story she would die for. So for a story that sounds that good, Michelle wants to make a deal and offers to talk to the editor and try to convince him that he over reacted. But Maya tells her No deal, and that she has more important stuff to worry about now. So Michelle leaves.

Len tells Kit and Chris that they need a training session, and tells them to regroup the next morning, early.

Xaviax is all suited up, with briefcase, and heads on out to con his new recruits. JTC receives Maya's message in Xaviax's lair.

Kit visits his dad at the hospital again. Kit says that he understands now why he gave him the Advent Deck. His dad reminds him to also take care of himself and family, and not just help others.

Chris checks his mail from the post office and opens a letter from Dr. Nathan Heath from the Naval Hospital, Respiratory Disease Unit, informing him that on review of his latest tests, he feels it important to warn him that any strenuous exercise could be extremely dangerous, and says to please call him as soon as possible to discuss this urgent matter. Chris crumples the letter.

The Cho brothers begin disassembling parts from the stolen motorcycles to sell. Xaviax arrives and offers them to be a part of a really big score. He explains that his team is getting ready to make the biggest heist in the history of Earth, but one guy stands in their way, and if they can somehow subtract that person, they can have anything they want. The brothers accept the offer, so Xaviax shows them the tools of their new trade. He opens the briefcase, revealing that it's full of spending cash, and two Advent Decks.

Later that night at Grace's Books, James stops in to meet with Maya, without calling first. Maya asks him if he knows what a Kamen Rider is. James says he has no idea. Maya explains that some people she met said that his pictures are of a Kamen Rider, and they want to meet him. James agrees to meet with them, but only on his terms.

The three Riders begin their training session. Wing Knight teaches Sting that a fighter with no lung power needs to make every shot count. Sting manages to kick Wing Knight hard. Len, Kit and Chris go to meet JTC. They see JTC being taken away by a Minion, so they transform. Sting takes off one way without waiting. Wing Knight and Dragon Knight decide to meet them on the other side. The Minion attacks Wing Knight and Dragon Knight. Sting is attacked by Strike again. The Minion is destroyed. Sting uses what he learned from Wing Knight and manages to deliver a hard kick at Strike. But it only angers him, and Strike decides he's done messing around with him. Wing Knight and Dragon Knight arrive in time, and Strike retreats.

Chris apologizes for running off on his own. Len reminds them that they are stronger together, and the only way they're going to win is to work as a team. And the three take off to team up on some pizza.

Xaviax returns to his lair with his new recruits - Kamen Rider Axe and Kamen Rider Spear.
