From watching season 4 is sheith's future hopeful and heading in the right direction in your eyes?
Honestly? Absolutely. The thing is, Keith is a major character with a story that branches out into a lot of other aspects of the plot. If he was gonna have a love interest–and I think he will–they should’ve established some sort of interest. We should be getting narrative cues as to who he’d be paired with. There should be chemistry there, character development, some kind of love or longing–and really? As far as I’m concerned, sheith makes the most sense.
And Keith wouldn’t be happier with any other character. We’re already done with season 4. As I’ve said, if he’s gonna have someone, that relationship should be hinted at by this point. The only person I think Keith really loves and has continued to have deep and meaningful character interactions with is Shiro.
In season 4, he and “Shiro” clash, sure. But Keith specifically thanks him and says how much his support means. He’s the only one that Keith receives a more personal goodbye with instead of just the generic “we’ll miss you” group hug. “Shiro’s” the one Keith believes is the true Black Lion, and “Shiro” in turn believes in him. When Voltron is in trouble, “Shiro” is the one Keith tries to contact in a panic. And had Keith crashed that ship, “Shiro” would’ve been the last paladin he spoke to.
And that prekerberos cameo? The two of them together, Shiro’s hand on his shoulder, Lauren’s comment that he was still Keith’s “guiding light?” Keith might not have been around as much, but Shiro and Keith’s dynamic still receives plenty of development and promise for what the future–and past–may hold. I just think if they wanted to set him up with another love interest by now, they’ve had plenty of opportunities. But with Keith things always circle back to Shiro.
