Spoiler Warning For Season One And Two of Voltron: Legendary Defender
Fans have been waiting in anticipation for months for the third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Why wouldn’t they? The second season of the series left the audience on a cliffhanger of immense proportions. After the intense battle with Zarkon, the team discovered Shiro was gone, and Hagar orders the summoning of Prince Lotor, Zarkon’s son from the original series who has yet to show up in this new reboot. There are a lot of questions out there and only a new season would provide the answers necessary.
Luckily, a preview in the form of the first two episodes was given to this website to give you, our readers, a preview of what to expect in this new season. The spoilers will be kept to a minimum, but a few details need to be mentioned for the sake of reviewing the episodes. Keep this in mind before continuing.
Changing of the Guard
These episodes mostly serve to showcase what the universe has been up to in the wake of Zarkon’s defeat. Keith is desperately searching for Shiro, Lance and Hunk are working with the Blade of Mamora to take down remaining Galra forces, and Pidge is still searching for her brother. These are interesting enough elements, but then Lotor makes his introduction later and steals the entire episode. He comes off even more manipulative, cunning, and dangerous than his previous incarnations. Lotor will definitely be welcomed addition to the show.
The Red Paladin
As Lotor works to flush out the Voltron Paladins, he sends his elite forces to set a trap. It appears his team is made up of all half blooded aliens, showcasing Lotor’s weakness for others who weren’t born a pure blooded alien. Afterward, the process to see who gets to pilot the Black Lion begins. If you have seen the original show, you know what happens and the predictable nature is the only real downside of the episode. There is as interesting bit as Allura reveals her connection to the previous Red Paladin and why she is desperate to try and pilot it herself.
Overall, not a bad start to the new season at all. Stay tuned to Monkeys Fighting Robots for a full review of season three of ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender.’.
