U.S. Dragon Ball Z - Episode Summaries
Episode 57 - Goku is Ginyu and Ginyu is Goku
Title: Goku is Ginyu and
Ginyu is Goku
At the start of the episode,
Frieza flies up and talks to Guru. Guru says Nail was
trained differently than the other Nameks and and that
he is a lot stronger.
While he is saying this he tells Nail
telepathically that they must keep Frieza distracted so
the humans can find the Dragon Balls.
Across the planet over to where
Ginyu and Goku are, Ginyu tells Goku he can beat him
because he isn’t trained to be a killing machine like
at Guru’s place, Nail says he knows a place Frieza and
him can battle and he flies off with Frieza following
Over with Ginyu, Ginyu starts
laughing suprising Goku and Jiece. He throws a small Ki
Blast at Goku which is easily deflected. He throws 10 or
so more followed by a Finger Blast. None of these phase
Goku. Ginyu then takes off his scouter, giving it to
Jiece saying he’ll need it later.
Frieza asks Nail where they are
going and when he doesn’t answer, he teleports in
front of Nail saying this was far enough. They go down
and Frieza tells him his chance of winning is
non-existent. Nail powers up and Frieza says that he
under-estimated Nail’s power. He tells him his left arm has enough power to beat Nail and
says he’ll fight him with only that arm. Nail attacks
him with a chop to the neck, which has no effect. Frieza
grabs his arm and rips it off. Nail jumps back and howls
in pain, but is able to regenerate the limb.
We see Bulma on her Hover-Bike
who complains about not being able to go any faster. She
is then hit in the back by a flying dinosaur but she
thinks she can hide from it in the cave ahead. The cave
has another dinosaur so she stops and is carried off by
the flying dinosaur up into the air and is dropped
thinking she will be eaten by the dinosaur below. The
dinosaurs are beaten up by Krillin and Gohan and Bulma
yells at them saying they had been avoiding her and was
angry they didn’t have the Dragon Balls yet. They take
the Dragon radar but before leaving, Gohan tells her
that Goku is on the planet. Bulma thinks of the last
time she saw Goku.
At where Goku is, Ginyu powers up
than punches a hole in himself, amazing Goku. He then
uses his lethal Body Switch on Goku. Goku can’t
believe he is in Ginyu’s body and Jiece gives the new
Ginyu his scouter back who says they should head back to
the ship since they have “defeated” Goku. Goku
summons up all his strength then slowly follows them.
End of episode.
