If Lions mirror their paladins, do you think Blue ever feels insecure?
I don’t think entirely!
Because I do think that the Lions and the paladins are very similar people, but they also come at it from different life experiences, so they’re not going to be a perfect one to one match of every issue.
Blue and Lance are very similar, but I think Blue is sort of like… a version of Lance who is older and wiser and has worked through some of these issues. Lance’s insecurity I think is really rooted in the idea that he sort of doesn’t know who he is. He hasn’t felt like he has a role that’s his and valuable, and that nobody else could do better.
Blue already has, and has had for a very long time, a place in the team with a very well-defined role. Red, Yellow, Green or Black couldn’t do her job for her. She knows herself, and she’s more certain in that knowledge. The whole pride knows each other as well, so there’s more external support.
Lance hasn’t gotten there yet, but he will. So I feel like on that particular issue Blue knows how that feels, but she’s also had more time to work on that. She knows better than to just hand Lance this idea of importance, because… well, we see in s2e2, when the mermaid freedom fighters suggested they thought Lance was the savior of their people, he didn’t exactly take to it on a deep level.
Lance needs to find his own sense of importance, and we’re seeing him work on that, and where he stand with the team. And Blue is supporting him the best way she can, by continuing to stand by him. She chose him, and she knows why that is.
But as far as Blue’s history, I wouldn’t be surprised if this might suggest that Blue had some initial difficulty finding her place in the team.
