Former Pink Ranger Alycia Purrott (Syd, SPD) made her second appearance on the series in the fifth episode of the show's seventh season, titled "Shut Up, Dr. Phil." Purrott played a prominent role in the first scene of the episode, as Wendy Goodson, a real estate agent who gets fried to death at the beauty salon while under a hair dryer. After learning of another murder in the same town, the Winchester brothers investigate, discovering a string of murders traced back to a cheating husband (guest star James Marsters) and his angry wife (guest star Charisma Carpenter), who both practice powerful witchcraft and are ultimately out to destroy each other, unless the Winchesters can stop them. The brothers learn that Wendy was having an affair with the husband, which led to her death. This was Purrott's second appearance on "Supernatural."

Phillip Jeanmarie on "CSI: Miami" (2011)

Phillip Jeanmarie (Max, Wild Force) appeared on the crime drama "CSI: Miami" earlier this month. Jeanmarie guest starred as Jared Boyleston in the third episode of the show's 10th season, titled "Blown Away." The CSI team tries to solve the murder of a college co-ed when a tornado rips through the city, making evidence hard to come by. Jeanmarie's character, Jared, is found with a life-threatening injury by Eric Delko (series regular Adam Rodriguez) who saves his life. With a severe throat injury, Jared can't speak. Delko discovers that he was a member of a team of storm chasers and believes that Jared may have been looting homes in the process. He confronts him, leading to Jared going into cardiac arrest. It's discovered later that Jared tried to save the co-ed, which led to him being shot by his storm chasing partners, who were the ones robbing homes, not him. Delko returns to the hospital, apologizing for his accusations. Though he doesn't speak in the present, Jeanmarie does have several lines during a flashback sequence, which shows how he tried to come to the aide of the young woman after she walked in on the robbers and was brutally attacked, before the tornado hit. Though this was his first appearance on "CSI: Miami," Phillip Jeanmarie also guest-starred on the original "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

Season 10 of "CSI: Miami" currently airs on CBS

Ted, Tim & Tom DiFilippo on "Boy Meets World" (1999)

The seventh & final season of "Boy Meets World" brought guest appearances from three more Power Rangers alums. Zeo's triplet trio, Ted, Tim & Tom DiFilippo (Trey, Zeo), appeared briefly in the ninth episode of the season, titled "The Honeymoon is Over." While it focused on the post-marriage problems of main characters, Cory & Topanga, the episode also featured a side story involving Cory's brother, Eric and his best friend Jack, who meet three beautiful girls who happen to be triplets. While the two guys enjoy having so many new girlfriends, the girls aren't so happy without another boy to date. When Eric finally finds someone, it turns out to be one of the DiFilippos, who mentions bringing along his brothers. When the girls see three guys just like them, they leave Eric & Jack behind. The triplets appear in only one brief scene at the end of the episode. One of the brother's gets a brief line. Blake Foster and Karim Prince were both previously featured for their appearances on "Boy Meets World."

Brandon Jay McLaren on "The Killing" - 4 (2011)

Brandon Jay McLaren (Jack, SPD) continued his role on AMC's "The Killing," in the crime drama's fifth episode titled, "Super 8." McLaren guest starred as Bennet Ahmed, the teacher of Rosie Larsen, the murdered teenager whose death is at the heart of the mystery series. Detectives Linden & Holder confront Bennet after Linden's discovery of letters he had written to Rosie hidden in her room in the previous episode. Bennet claims the letters to be a harmless technique he used with the shy teenager to get her to express herself, which she was too scared to do in class. The detectives, however, don't seem to buy his story and discover he also doesn't have an alibi for the night of Rosie's murder. They head to Bennet's home to question his pregnant wife, who was also a former student of his. While there, Linden discovers chemicals Bennet claimed to use in a flooring project. A toxicology report later shows that Rosie had the chemical applied to various parts of her body. Bennet is last seen arm-in-arm with the campaigning Darren Richmond, who also holds ties to Rosie's case. Despite his character's major role in the episode, McLaren appears in only two scenes.
