I’ve been watching Go Lion Voltron (and, let me tell you, it’s wild), and I just watched this episode where Allura and the other Alteans end up getting poisoned by some flower pollen and the team needs to go get an antidote to save them. But, the planet the antidote is on has a weird magnetic field or something so the Blue Lion has to be the one to go there, and Allura, the Blue Lion’s Paladin, is passed the fuck out so she can’t actually pilot it. But:

Lance, the Red Paladin, runs off in the Blue Lion to go to the planet, get the antidote, and save the day! Basically, other people can pilot the Blue Lion in Allura’s stead while she’s otherwise occupied.

So… what if that’s kinda what Lance has been doing this whole time?
