[Modern Day Hooked Wayfinder AU] When couchsurfing globetrotter Maui meets backpacking student Moana in the Harrods store in London, they are complete strangers in a part of the world that is unfamiliar to them both. Circumstances lead to them participating in a prestigious Valentine’s Day competition, pretending to be lovers, just for laughs. But when they actually win a holiday together, they learn that playing pretend that they’re in a relationship isn’t as hard as they thought it would be.
Honestly, I have to wonder if we’re going to see Lotor get into an ugly situation as a kind of nod to how Sendak captured Shiro in s1e4. Because, like Shiro, Lotor’s a hell of a combatant- not easily outmaneuvered or taken down, especially because Lotor’s specialty is fighting when hopelessly outgunned and as I’ve said many times before, the empire’s main strategy when it doesn’t like someone is “needs more guns.”
But the generals are all individually highly capable, and a close-knit team, but if the empire’s trying to hit five targets and all they have to do is catch one of them, their odds suddenly look a lot better than just one.
If we see Lotor surrender to spare one of the generals- or just leave himself open trying to protect them- I can see that being an interesting plot point. First, it’s exactly the sort of thing the empire would do- just like Sendak did for the team, mocking and degrading those interpersonal connections as “weakness”- but also assuming that cutting off the head will incapacitate the entire body.
Assuming that taking out Lotor means that the rest of his followers are immediately neutralized- when that loyalty flows both ways.
Especially if Lotor potentially sacrifices himself to make sure all four generals get out of there safely- because Lotor trusts his father’s forces as far as he can throw them.
