Jap.30 "Grandpa's Insanity, Rei-chan in Jeopardy."
The action in this episode kicks into gear rather early in this episode as Zoicite has already found out who the next Rainbow Crystal carrier is, Raye's grandpa! The old guy is completely unaware of his special status (much like all the other crystal holders with the exception of Greg) and is enjoying a simple night of moon watching on top of his temple when Zoicite appears and immediately begins to remove his blue Rainbow Crystal.
Surprisingly, Raye's grandpa has so much spiritual power that he is able to fight back at Zoicite and keep his crystal in his chest! The trauma of having his Rainbow Crystal almost removed is still a large strain on him and he doubles over and falls off of the roof as Raye's guardian crows, Phoebos and Daemos fly in to attack Zoicite who is so overpowered by the crows that she retreats to rethink her strategy.
Anyway, Raye hears all the commotion and rushes outside to see what's going on. All she sees though is her grandpa lying on the ground so she assumes that he simply fell off of the roof by himself.
The next morning, Serena, Luna, Amy and Lita come to visit and are shocked at what they see. Not only is Chad (who they have never met before) seen swinging from tree to tree with a cape on, but so is Raye's grandpa! Raye explains that he hasn't been the same since he fell off the roof last night and that she's very worried about him. Just then Chad falls and lands right in front of them. He tells them that Raye's grandpa is training him to take over the temple for when he's gone. Raye's grandpa then breaks into tears and cries about how he doesn't want Raye to be all by herself to look after such a huge temple when he's gone. Raye explains to the girls that he used to be so happy, but now he's an emotional wreck.
Later on in the evening, Raye has a serious talk to Chad and apologises for the way her grandpa has been acting. Chad says he doesn't mind at all but Raye worries that he may be losing his mind.
Later that night, Serena and Luna are drowning their sorrows in some home-made chocolate cakes made by Serena's mum when Serena gets the great idea to give the cakes to Raye as a piece offering! (Apparently Raye can't resist chocolate).
At the temple, Raye is taking a ice hot bath while outside her grandpa is having his Rainbow Crystal taken from him by Zoicite! As soon as the crystal pops from his body, one of Tuxedo Mask's roses flies out of nowhere and stops Zoicite's hand from getting it. Tuxedo Mask appears and says that he won't let the Negaverse get all the crystals. Despite this statement, Zoicite picks the crystal up and runs away. Tuxedo Mask follows.
Just then, Chad decides to come outside and finds himself face to face with the monster that used to be Raye's grandpa! Chad runs as fast as he can to Raye and screams that there's a monster in the temple. Raye freaks out (because she's naked) but after quickly getting dressed the monster finds them and they both run for their lives (with comedic effect).
As luck would have it, Serena arrives, sees the monster and transforms into Sailor Moon. Chad gets knocked unconscious by the monster and Serena, ready to defend herself begins her Moon Tiara Magic attack but is stopped by Raye who yells at her to stop and that that monster is really her grandpa.
The monster takes advantage of this indecision and chases Sailor Moon and Raye all around the temple. Suddenly Raye gets and idea and tells Sailor Moon to get ready to stop. Raye jumps into the air and throws an "Evil Spirits Disperse" charm on the monster, paralysing him. Sailor Moon then stops running and uses Moon Healing Activation to turn the monster back into Raye's grandpa.
Elsewhere, Tuxedo Mask has lost Zoicite who yells from the shadows that next time she returns, she'll come after him.
Back at the temple, Serena, Chad, Raye and her grandpa are all relaxing on the temple steps eating Serena's chocolate cakes. Chad announces that he wants to stay at the temple and Raye says that it's fine but doesn't stay happy for long as she almost spontaneously starts fighting with Serena again.
Down the path at the temple entrance, Lita and Amy are walking by and hear the fighting. Both are happy that Serena and Raye are talking again.
Monster of the Day
This monster doesn't seem to have a name or any special powers. It is rather short though and can run rather fast though not fast enough to actually catch anyone. He also has some strength in him judging by his throwing of Chad around in this episode.
He was the seventh and final Rainbow Crystal warrior awakened by the Negaverse.
