Thoughts on Voltron season 3
Sooooooo. I just finished Voltron season 1 and 2
(in one day, hurraaaay). And I want to talk about something and I would like to hear what others think. Before I start, my English is not perfect. I may use certain words that are not grammatically correct or words that do not seem to “fit” in a certain context/sentence, so please keep that in mind.
I want to start with something Jeremy said in an interview, something about “facing sexuality in Voltron”. And I know a lot of people (including myself) want to think that he’s talking about Klance, but considering what happened between Keith and Allura (Allura accepting Keith being half-Galra and the hug afterwards), I think it is obvious who he was talking about. Allura never would’ve thought of falling in love with a (half-)Galra, a race that disgusts her. A race that killed her family and friends, but now we have Keith. Someone she considers family/friend, but is half-Galra. But why do I think that Jeremy is talking about those two? Well, apparently in the 80s version of Voltron Lotor was hitting on Allura while Keith was also pining after her. Also, there has been no developments with any other ““couple”” in season 2. If I don’t look through my shippers goggles, if I set my shipping goggles aside….. The first two seasons do not have any romantic interactions between the five (six if I incude Allura
sorry Coran) of them. And if i’m correct it was said in another interview that they (the paladins) hadn’t had the time to bond with each other, which is 100% true. When did they actually sit down and talk with each other? When did they have the TIME to actually sit down and talk with each other? Time to grow feelings? (not counting the bonding moments from the beginning of season 1) (Also I died at this part: WE HAD A BONDING MOMENT. I CRADDLED YOU IN MY ARMS - Keith 2k16).
These are all obviously speculations. If we look at Legend of Korra and the Avatar, the romance didn’t start until we were a few seasons in and in LOK I truly did not expect the Korra/Asami pairing (
observation skills? what observation skills lol). So there is still a chance for Klance/Sheith/Shallura to become canon, but I feel like I set my bars too high after YOI (and Legend of Korra) and after learning about the 80s Lotor and Keith…..
This is MY opinion or you could call it a theory/speculation I guess, you do not have to agree. Hell, I don’t want to agree with myself
(Klance/Lancelot i’m waiting for you in season 3). I would like to have a civilized discussion with our fandom, ‘cause I feel like overlooked quite some things….
What are your thoughts? :)
