During Christmas, Emily recounted all the events in her life since she became a Power Ranger to her sister in a letter. When a Nighlok named Switchbeast switched most of the Rangers' souls with inanimate objects, Emily relied on Mike to come up with a plan and they had to defeat the monster together. They were able to defeat Switchbeast by having Mike switch bodies with it. When a monster hit most of the Rangers with a dust that made them hungry, Emily was the only one not effected. She believed the others got hit trying to protect her.
The Rangers were eating everything in sight and on top of it all, Bulk and Spike arrived to their house to return Mia's forgotten wallet. Emily deduced they wanted Samurai training so she put on a wig and military outfit and acted as a drill sergeant 'training' the two in order to prove to herself that she could be 'tough.' Jayden, still under the spell, went to fight the Nighlok. Emily went to help and was able to defeat the monster with her newfound confidence. When the team defeated the Nighlok, Emily went back home to take care of her sister along with Mike.
