Its headcanon time: Lance might be Altean!
So correct me if im wrong, and im quickly writing this bc its late and shit, but we know one thing right?
Allura is the only person that can open a wormhole.
If Allura would be the only one to be able to open a wormhole, how did Lance reach planet Arus?
He wouldn’t be able to.
Now, i know this might seem unlikely. The lion could’ve opened the portal too, right?
No, because that would mean that allura simply didn’t need to create wormholes, because the lion would be able to open it himself. Allura explicitly states that, even if theres enough quintessence, someone needs to manually open the portal.
We gotta keep in mind that Lance doesn’t have his “special thing”. Hes the most balanced character of all, who has the least unique qualities. Shiro has his past, Pidge their family, Keith his Galra-ness, Allura had her problems ith the Galra’s and Hunk is the cook/sweetheart (who in imo can have some more qualities too). He knows it himself, too.
Lance is, though, an extremely perceptive person, and it isnt the first time that things that he has said lead to foreshadowing (“why are the galras finding us?” “I dont know, but i bet its keiths fault” implying that keith has a relation to the galra). In episode 1, Lance literally says to keith “I’ll stick u in a wormhole!”
Lance, too, was the one who caught Allura, who’s an Altean, and is the closest paladin to Coran. He also was the first one to activate his lion. And hes the only one sleeping in Altean robes.
Now, I’m not necessarily saying that Lance is Altean, but at least his quintessence is close to theirs. But it wouldn’t surprise me if Lance somehow has something to do with the Alteans.
Feel free to add on to this post if u found things too!
