It’s all about trust

So I’m loving the posts going around really digging into the details of Season 2 and I’d like to add one of my own that I haven’t seen covered yet.  Let’s talk about this:

This is one of the first times we see Shiro talking to his lion since the end of season 1 and its not at all the way we’ve seen the other Paladins talk to theirs so far.  To be fair, we’re skipping ahead in the conversation, which started out very much as a ‘we’ve got some work to do’ (implied ‘together’;) but it escalates to this point pretty quickly.  *side note?  Shiro is the only one not shown talking to his lion after the team comes out of the corrupted wormhole and crash lands on their respective planets/nebulas.  Maybe he does, but we get no indication of it the way we did with the others and I think that’s deliberate of the show writers.*  In season 1, we saw that Shiro had, possibly, the strongest bond with his lion in the flying blind incident so how did we get to the point where Shiro’s voice actually holds panic when he’s talking to his lion now?

That’s the easy part, really.  We all remember this scene.

Shiro basically gets kicked out of his own lion and, Zarkon controlled or not, it would be very hard for him to not feel as if the lion itself was, if not actively participating, at least complacent in the act.  This isn’t just a mindless mechanical response - it looks like a rejection of him as a pilot and as the pilot of the Black Lion.  Now we need to consider Shiro’s state of mind for a moment to understand just how deeply this would effect him.  For an entire year of his life, he hasn’t been treated as though he had any intrinsic worth at all.  He’s been a piece of meat, entertainment fodder, a pawn, a toy, a commodity.  He has had his physical and mental state forceably changed against his will.  All the things that probably make up what he considers himself have been ignored or outright mowed right over.  And he remembers just enough to know that - and not enough to know how deep the damage or the alien change inside of him has gone.  He’s someone that’s struggling to rebuild his sense of self, to figure out who he is and what his worth is and its not hard to suppose that his place as team leader, Black paladin and pilot of his lion are stones he’s been building a lot of his new foundation on.  ‘Defenders of the Universe, huh? It has a nice ring to it’ he says as everyone else is quietly freaking out over the concept.  This gives Shiro purpose, this assures him he’s still worth something, this helps tell him who he is beyond slave, gladiator, experiment.

And this has just summarily rejected him in favor of a universe crushing tyrant.
