Keith + Lotor Theories
After seeing the new Season 3 sneak peaks, all my opinions and theories of Lotor have changed.
I believe that Lotor’s main focus isn’t going to be Lance but Keith instead.
He’s already met Keith in the “Belly of the Weblum” and I think he knows that he’s a galra. I think Lotor will try and manipulate Keith into switching sides. Maybe promise him that Keith he can see his parents?
Keith won’t be so easy to manipulate because of his strong sense of duty and strong mind, so that will cause hatred between the two since Keith is stubborn and Lotor is manipulative.
In the 80′s voltron, they were enemies/rivals because of Allura. I believe that will carry on to VLD.
Since their hatred towards each other was caused because of their affection for Allura, it could be that Lotor could develop feelings for Lance and Keith, being the pining dork that he is, will of course not let that happen.
But if I’m being honest, as much as I want it to, I don’t think that Lancelot is going to happen. But I do believe that some Keith/Lotor things might happen.
Lance considers himself Keith’s rival but what would happen if Keith found his own rival in Lotor. Keith doesn’t consider himself Lance’s rival anyway but he and Lotor may develop a rivalry/hate towards each other.
What would this mean for Lance? Jealousy. And I think that’s how the whole “Lance developing in some places/growing/sexuality” thing is going to happen.
We’re not going to get jealous!Keith. We’re going to get jealous!Lance. We’re going to get Lance being jealous of Lotor’s interaction’s with Keith. Not romantic interactions but the way that Lotor and Keith will but heads. The same way he and Keith but heads.
Since Keith may be taking over as the leader, his full priority will be Lotor and how would this make Lance feel. All of Keith’s attention focused only on Lotor.
In Seasons 1 and 2, we got pining/jealous Keith and now in Season 3, we’re going to get pining/jealous Lance. We’re going to get Lance slowly realising that his feelings for Keith may go deeper than he had previously anticipated but trying to deny them.
The way that Lotor was presented in the sneak peaks makes me believe that he will not be the silly, over-the-top villain he was in the 80′s voltron. I believe he will be serious. A force to be reckoned with.
I highly think the chances of Lancelot happening are dim but Lotor causing Lance to get jealous will be high
Everyone has been predicting that Lotor will go for Lance and make Keith jealous but I think we’re going to get the opposite and have jealous Lance instead.
Lance takes his rivalry with Keith very seriously. Even though they’re shown to get along, he still reverts back to his old ways. Keith having his own rival in Lotor would annoy Lance because he is supposed to be Keith’s rival. He’s supposed to be neck-in-neck with Keith. No one else.
Lance’s feelings will grow from annoyance to jealously and then realisation. Lotor will be the catalyst for Lance realising just how he feels about Keith.
Again, Lotor going for Lance and then having a jealous Keith might happen but because we’re are all expecting it, I think it’s going to be flipped and were going to have Keith being focused with Lotor because of his duty as leader and have jealous!Lance who finally realises and accepts his feelings.
