Keith Robinson (Joel, Lightspeed) continued his recurring role on the family drama "American Dreams," in the show's twenty-fifth episode. The aptly-titled "City on Fire," finds Philadelphia on the verge of a massive riot, spurned on by racial tensions. Robinson's character, Nathan Walker, finds himself in the middle of the conflict, as he cheers on the rioters in North Philly, even as they destroy the store where his uncle & cousin work for the Pryor family. Nathan warns his cousin, Sam, to leave the store, but he doesn't get out before the riots begin to get out of hand. Sam gets caught in the chaos, along with his teenage friend, Meg Pryor (series star Brittany Snow). When Meg's uncle Pete and the rest of the Philadelphia police arrive to regain control, things get even more dangerous for all those involved. Nathan's closest friend is killed and Nathan is only saved from the same fate by Pete.
Former Pink Ranger, Patricia Ja Lee (Cassie, Turbo-Space) can currently be seen in commercials for Citicard. Lee appears throughout the 30-second ad, playing a make-up artist on the set of a big budget motion picture. The commercial encourages Citi users to tell their stories of how their credit card comes in handy in their lives. While she has no lines in the commercial, there is a voice-over that can be heard as her scenes play out. The commercial can be seen in its entirety on Youtube. Patricia Ja Lee is the second Power Ranger actor featured on the blog for appearing in a Citicard commercial. Nakia Burrise was the first.
"The Tribe's" fourth series continued with it's third episode, which found the Power Ranger alums all thinking about their next moves. Tom Hern (Devin, Dino Thunder) continued in his role, as the villain, Ram, the head of the invading Technos. He moves forward with his next plan of action in dealing with the city and it's a sneaky plot. When the former Mosquito, Dee, has a run-in with one of Ram's Technos, the young, cocky Ved, she steals his communications device and takes it to Ebony at the mall. They think they've gotten the upper hand on their new enemies, but don't realize that Ram is listening on the other end, just as he planned. Outside the city, Trudy, played by Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force) continues to watch over Amber as she rests after giving birth to her son. When Amber awakens Trudy tells her they need to leave before the Technos return. Amber wants to wait for Bray, leaving Trudy no choice but to tell Amber that Bray was probably captured by the Technos. Amber doesn't believe her, until Trudy shows her the ring Amber gave him and she knows he wouldn't leave it behind by choice. Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive) continues her role as Amber and after giving her baby a name, Bray Jr., she agrees with Trudy that they have to get their children away from the new conflict. Back in the city, James Napier (Conner, Dino Thunder) appears in a couple of scenes as Jay, Ram's loyal general. Jay reports to Ram on how the takeover of the city is progressing, while also trying to control his younger brother, Ved, who monopolizes the computers for games. Jay makes it clear they should be focusing on their work to secure the city.
Series 4 of "The Tribe" is available on DVD (Non-U.S.)
