Candace, Billy’s mother, absolutely adores the Rangers and especially Jason because he was the first person who actually showed up after Billy invited someone over- admittedly for selfish reasons but she loves the friendship they now have. Whenever they come over she fusses about giving them drinks they like and snacks they enjoy, and she’s pretty much Molly Weasley, adopts these kids the second she sees them.
She was angry about the car but too relieved that her kids weren’t in it when it got hit *ahem ahem awkward coughingyea…*. She insists on carpooling them sometimes, like if she sees Trini walking home in the rain for example. She has pictures of Billy with all his friends all over the house.
Candace was also the person Zack called when his mother took a bad turn, panicking and crying and it’s okay, Zack, I’m right there I’m getting in my car right now, sweetie.
The woman we see briefly in the film is actually Jason’s stepmother, and Pearl is his half-sister. A few members of the town remember his biological mother, but no one knows why she suddenly left when he was seven.
When he’s not pretending she doesn’t exist he’s usually angry, twitchy and avoids anyone touching him. She showed up at Angel Grove to ‘see if he was alright’ after the Rita/Goldar incident, and the first time he saw her Jason dived under the table and Trini on reflex covered him with her coat because she’s freaking seen this reaction before. Jason went to stay at the other Rangers houses for the two weeks his mother kept trying to see him before giving up.
Trini’s mother hates the Rangers. She’s ‘grateful they saved us but look at the carnage they left!’. Trini’s little brothers always argue back that it was Rita and Goldar who did most of the damage.
Kimberly’s dad thinks her friends are bad influences but her mom loves them. Kimberly’s mom lets Kimberly have their converted basement, decked out like a rec room, for regular hang outs with all her friends. If she knows they’re coming she usually has a massive meal planned out too and really it’s by his wife’s influence alone that Kim’s dad ends up liking them too.
Jia, Zack’s mother, knows they’re the Rangers she’s not stupid. She saw her son leap over the lawn and land in the trash (inspired by a deleted scene showing her watching him from the window) and he suddenly has four friends who all perfectly match the statures of the other Rangers. Come on Zack.
She calls them her Five Warriors. The first time she did it she had to stop herself from laughing at their alarmed looks. Jia can’t believe they still think she doesn’t know after that hint.

Still I’m pinned under the weight Of what I believed would keep me safe. So show me where my armor ends, Show me where my skin begins.

Voltoron Theory: Where in the Galaxy is Shirogane?
So I re watched Blackout, again, and again, trying to figure
out when Shiro vanished. Now the only time this could have happened was at the
point between Zarkon’s mecha exploding and the lions falling apart. This means
it happens when we’re at the distance Shot.
(Apology for the play button in the middle of the picture)
So at this point one has to wonder what the heck is going on
there and why this is significant.
What we know is a few things.
1. We know that Allura showed off a strange pink energy
Haggar recognized right away and seemed shocked over her being able
to wield it.
2. Said magic seemed to rip through the whole ship.
3. This same magic color seems to be coming out of Zarkon
when he grabs Shiro.
4. If this is the corrupted Quintessence it seems weird that
Zarkon can wield it. (Which I’ll go into in a later post) If it’s not, then
it’s a form of Altean Magic (which I’ll go into in a later post).
5. Zarkon’s mecha explodes in that color when he is sliced
by the flaming sword.
6. Zarkon and Shiro have a mind meld in the Astral plane
again, and this time he is able to physically take the bayard from Zarkon.
7. It’s also important to note that Shiro and the Black Lion
share a moment of connection when entering that plane and that both eyes glow
8. Shiro’s arm is made of Galra tech, thus making him partly
So why did I make that list? Well I think it’s important to
know the events that led up to Shiro vanishing and that those moments may
connect to how he got transported and where.
During the battle with Zarkon we see him take to his ship,
this is significant because it’s not yet tested but we know it runs on energy
like Voltron. Voltron’s energy comes from Quintessence which comes from both
the Paladins and the internal workings of the lions themselves. The lions are,
given what we see with the black lion’s creation, pretty much spirits that have
become part of the lion. It’s why the Paladins have to bond with them and why
they seem to have personalities.
In the original Golion the lions held the souls of five
warriors, who were placed inside Voltron and were going crazy due to various
reason. Something similar may be going on here, which is why I’m suspecting
that for Shiro there’s a chance that the lion sent him away from the fight.
We see this pink color cover Allura during her battle with
Haggar and Haggar’s reaction to it shows that she knows what’s going on and is
shocked by it.
“Impossible” she says and proceeds to attack. This is
formerly noticed by Allura who doesn’t seem to understand where the energy is
coming from. Now it’s kind of important to note here that this isn’t the
corrupted Quintessence since it’s not the same as the blacker energy that the
Druids were making, so this is a new form of Altean magic, and something that
Haggar recognizes is more powerful than her own dark magic.
This magic, I’m guessing, is probably connected directly to
the lions and possibly to the spirits that reside with them. Another important
point in the time table of the battle is that Shiro manages to connect directly
with the Black lion and pull together to expand the wings, allowing him to use
the ablity to phase through the astral plane (or teleport) and take the Bayard
from Zarkon. Shiro doesn’t get how it happened but it did.
Lastly, during the end fight with Zarkon, right before the
flaming sword occurs, we see him reaching out with his mecha hands, grab Shiro
and infuse the cabin with that same pink energy. This in turn prompts Shiro to
stick in his bayard, turn and we get the flaming sword. It’s followed by the
pink explosion of Zarkon.
Now there’s something about the color core there that I’d like to get into when
I talk about Lotor, Zarkon and Haggar, but again I have to save that for later.
It’s at this point I believe that Shiro vanished. Right when
the white explosion ripped apart the Lions. But why would that transport Shiro.
Well, as I said before with Haggar’s reaction. This is some sort of magic, and
Shiro tapped into it when he bonded with the Lion. Rather than keep him there
where he would be wounded by his connection to Zarkon, the lion sent him
Now there’s a few places I can think of that he would go. So
I’m going to start out with the most impossible and then traverse to the most
Option 1. Shiro is
being transported through Time and Space into the Past
We’ve seen that the Black Lion has a deep connection to it’s
past, as it was showing Shiro through a mind transport about the past of the
Galra home world, back when Alfor and Zarkon were friends and worked together
in creating the Black Lion.
So given that it has this mind-scape skill could it be that
it pushed Shiro back through time in the blast as a means of protecting him?
Making him go and learn more about the lions in this way would be something
rather different and would certainly keep him out of the picture. However, the
problem with this would be the fact that the series has never had a case of
time travel before, and also it would probably have the same issues that Batman
had when DC decided to send Bruce Wayne back in time after he got zapped by a
really powerful device from big Bad of DC Darkseid. So this one is probably out
However I do think that the astral plane will come into play
in how he’s moving and also probably in him witnessing events during the course
of the series.
Which brings us to…
Option 2: Shiro winds up with the Rebels and Matt.
This one’s a little more logical and keeps true to the idea
of possibly the Black Lion sending him off to a safe place. In this case the
lion is reading Shiro’s mind and taking him to where Matt is.
Now the reason why this could be a logical next move is that
it firstly brings the Rebellion a strong leader as Keith would now be taking
over the Voltron Force. As such Shiro would be a great leader for the Rebels in
general, unless Matt has become that? (Which would be cool, no lie.) Also it
would position Shiro to rejoin when Pidge finds Matt and a joy filled reunion,
allowing the rebellion to help fight Lotor.
It’s an easy thing to see also because Matt and Sam are the
second part of Shiro’s mission. He wants to help Katie find her family and he
feels guilty about them being captured in the first place as it was part of his
job to protect them. If the Lion read this then sending him to Matt would put
him in a safe place and an easier to find location for the team later in the season.
However if they want to make it where Pidge and Matt meet in
a different way without Shiro then they may not have him show up here, because
it would make the meeting between Katie and Matt that much more significant if
Matt then joined in in the hunt for shiro.
Also if Matt is going to be seen as growing stronger since
his time with Shiro then having him be the leader of the Rebellion would be a
better bet than giving it to Shiro.
So if it’s not with the rebels then who? Well that drags us
Option 3: Shiro is
going to end up where Sam Holt is
We know that Sam is not with Matt, as we saw in Season one when
Shiro remembered what happened at the gladiatorial pit. So the question is,
exactly where is he? We know that he’s a scientist and probably as smart, if
not more, then Pidge. So it would be more than likely that Sam would be taken
in to work on something for the Galra at a secure location.
Like before with the idea of Shiro being taken to Matt, in
this case the Lion teleports Shiro to a location where Sam is. Again, it’s part
of the reasoning behind Shiro’s mission to get his team back as well as help
Pidge find her family. Sam, in the meanwhile, is probably on a planet that is
not as hostile as some of the others and is probably taken care of for the most
part. They want his mind to be busy on building something. What that something
is, I can only guess at right now. My own theory is that Lotor stole the scaultrite
from Keith in order to create lenses for a Telladove device to transport
something from one location to another.
It’s kind of important to note that the Galra show no
magical abilities. The only characters that have used Magic is Allura and
Haggar. While they have wielded energy weapons, not one has used any form of
magic to attack any of the Voltron members. Leaving me to speculate that they
can’t wormhole due to the lack of Magic to power the tech to do so. But if they
have Sam there, he may be being forced to find a way to get a warping device to
This would mean that the story line from the original story
about Romelle needing Sven to help her get out of a sticky situation could
translate to Sam and Shiro escaping. Allowing Shiro to have his own adventure
with Sam and probably discover more about himself and the galaxy at large.
While having Shiro play big damn hero to Sam would be really
nifty there’s another option here that could connect with this one.
Option 4: Shiro is
going to end up on Pollux and meet Princess Romelle
While Romelle’s name isn’t as famous as Allura’s she’s still
a very important part of the Voltron story and has always been at least
mentioned if not shown in the series proper. As the daughter of the Royal
family on the planet Pollux, Romelle was given to Lotor in the original to be
his wife to solidify the alliance between Galra and Pollux. However she
rejected him and was sentenced to death until Sven (Ryou Shirogane) helped her
escape after she helped him get over his guilt in failing Voltron (or in the original
losing his brother Takashi).
Pollux would make for an interesting location for the Lion
to shoot Shiro too for two reasons. Firstly it was one of the few planets that wasn’t
over run by the Galra due to the fact that it had an alliance with them, and
would be a mostly safe place for an injured Shiro to hang out. Second, Pollux
would be a great place to have Sam Holt work on a project. Not only is the
royal family Altean –and possibly most of the people are as well –but also its,
again, a safe place where there’s an alliance and no one’s going to try to
kidnap Sam or break him free.
I’m going to take a large leap of logic here and theorize
that there’s a high probably that Pollux is where Shiro ends up. It’s an easy
jump to tell a story where Romelle or Bandur finds an injured Shiro and has him
taken to the castle where he’s bandaged up. Here they discover he’s a member of
Voltron and try to cover it up so that Lotor (who hasn’t yet gotten word about
his father’s injury) doesn’t know. Romelle’s older brother could play a part as
a morally gray person, he at first offers to help Shiro, but in the end turns
on him as a means of protecting his people.
Romelle in the meantime could take on Sven’s role, and help
Shiro and Sam escape from Pollux on a ship to find Volton. This could be used
to show what’s going on outside of what Voltron has been doing and also help
cover the issue of the aliens that are actually for the galra and feel that
they’re benefiting from the empire. This could also help in dealing with the
Altean plot and what happened to the rest of Altea and if anyone else is still
So those are my four options, I wonder if anyone has other
ideas. I’d love to hear them.
I have no idea if anyone is interested in doing this, but here goes anyway! Feel free to do it all or pick and choose the parts you like. I’m going to try and work my way through it all, but knowing my speed it’ll take approx 6 years.
