Voltron Season 2 thoughts
Okay so i binged the whole thing last night from 12am until 5am in the morning and i just have to get my thoughts out there. Dont read if you havent watched already!!! Spoilers!!!
Okay so let me just say i fucking loved it. Right yes, i think we all did. Keith had so much growth as a character and i didnt even know how much i wanted that until ot was happening. I had a feeling when Shiro kept brining up him leading Voltron that it was hinting at the end of the season Shiro would either be dead or missing. (IM GLAD HES MISSING BECAUSE IT MEANS HES NOT DEAD RIGHT???) But i cant express my level of excitement to know that Keith is going to get to be temporary leader. Even though i love Space dad and want him to return… Keith will make an amazing leader. Perhaps even a better leader than Shiro!
I also love the fact that Keith has an incredible connection with his lion. That was something i was HOPING would happen to at least one of the paladins. But its fitting for Keith because the very first time Red meets Keith, it jumps out into space to save him. Which he/she did a few times in season 2 now.
Also the lions have genders. Hunk is confirmed a boy and Pidge is confirmed a girl and thats just… i needed that. Now i want to know what the other three are!!!
Pidge not knowing which bathroom to go into. *clutches heart* im not even going to begin on my feels for a trasngender/nonbinary character in a show. This is IMPORTANT. i love it. And no one can argue that Pidge didnt know which door was which because Keith came out of the -obviously- mens room later in that episode.
My only real critique for season 2 has to be the fact that once again Lance and Hunk seemed to get little to none character development. Especially Lance it seemed. And i dont like his character being forgotten about. He has insecurities and theyve only just touched on them breifly. I would REALLY like to see Season 3 focus more on Lance as a strong member of the team. Im hoping that since Keith has to lead Voltron, Lance steps up and becomes the *erhem* right-hand-man that Keith was TO Shiro. Fire and Ice, Keith and Lance, Neck and neck, SPACE RANGER PARTNERS. RIGHT?
Another thing that really irritated me was the fact that Allura admittedly wanted to hate Keith. And its understandable WHY she did, but i also thought it was super fucked up. Keith has taken more risks than any of the other Paladins, its in his character and his nature to do that, but Allura instantly distrusted him. I have to wonder if she would have felt the same about Shiro if HE was part Galra (by BLOOD i should specify because technically his arm makes him part Galra already). Allura did apologize and hug Keith and thats great n all but i still dont like her way of thinking. Shes a strong female character, but i like her less in season 2 now than i did in season 1. Smh.
Speaking of female characters im 99.9% convinced that the Galra Keith met in the stomach of the worm is his mother. I will fight you on this. I know Keith called it a him/he but i think thats purposeful to make it a bigger reveal later on because i know thats not the last we will see of that Galra.
- Shay misses Hunk and i love them
- Pidge has a lead on where Matt is and i really hope we get some Matt action in season 3. (Especially after Shiro said Matt and Pidge are a lot alike because Pidge is a badass)
- They either have a cow now or they…like… pushed it out into open space???
-Season 3 will not come fast enough. Where my fanart anf fanfics to hold me over?
- I know its probably pretty lame of me, but i swear if they make Allura and Keith have a love interest in each other i will stop watching the show. Not just cus i love Klance but because im upset with Allura and Keith deserves better.
- Lance is a mermaid and he doesnt need pants.
:D im GLAD I GOT THAT ALL OUT OF MY SYSTEM.
