heblo, its time for Big Season Recount by ur homie Riem, feel free to add shit u liked or hated to it whenever u want, analysis much appreciated
(please dont interact with this post if you’re a shala or piladin tho, lets be civile here and respect boundaries)
this season we’ve got:
- pidge being fucking badass as hell
- FLASHBACKS WITH HOLTS. THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS SO WHOLESOME
- matt puns (blz i need a pun showdown between him and hunk, PUN BUDDIES)
- BROGANES HUG
- apparently we have a nerd trio now?? bless??
- hunk nerding out with holt sibs!!! (i still need more also it was p much spoiled by fart jokes later on but,,, a man gotta take what hes given i guess)
- a much needed break from keefer, i actually enjoyed when he showed up? he looks happier with marmorites tho i think it will be a rocky journey and i think at some point we can expect more conflicts of morals between them. also the voltron team dynamic feels off-balance without him around? it feels artificial.
- ALLURA IS STILL A PALADIN AND WRITERS APPARENTLY DIDNT FORGET ABOUT HER MAGIC
- after giving it some thought i still dont trust shiro-kuron??? he feels very Off
(or im just paranoid).tho im not rejecting the possibility of him still working out how to deal with shit that happened to him while he disappeared, hence weird behaviour and why black rejected him in s3.
- IS NARTI DEAD OR NOT? @ BUZZFEED UNSOLVED BLZ RESPOND
- ALSO WHILE WERE ON FISHY STUFF: i still dont trust lotor. at fucking all. did he help? yes. did he drop his evil motives (whatever they might be??) tho? definitely not. i doubt his sudden changed of heart, he has something up his sleeve (mm the alternate universe portal thing?? his obsession with quintessence???)
- WHERE ARE THE GENERALS NOW?? what are they about to do? will they just roam through space? will they join voltron too??? what are their goals now?
- can we take a second to appreciate all the women galra generals introduced to us this season. blz.
- also can we take another second (OR TWO. OR MAYBE ALL OF THEM) to appreciate women in resistance movement????????? their designs but also personalities?? that they were commanders, too?? like, blz. they’re amazing and i hope they’re thriving.
- ok heres my moment to gush about lance because im weak ok: i cant believe he apparently can do acrobatics?? hes so talented???? my sweet lover boy farmer son. let him s h i n e. also as much as im sad that he didnt really have more serious moments, his pep talk for allura?? fucking amazing. im so, so, so happy they animated this scene im still not Over It Okay.
- little negative here but: was the scene with matt, allura and lance really necessary ldks. like lance blz drop the jelly, matt calm ur pea coloured pants down and let allura Live lksdj. blz.
- CORAN TOOK LITERAL BUG DRUG I GUESS. I GUESS THATS A THING AND IM STILL NOT RLY OVER IT.
- also another second of appreciation for voltron force inspired theme in that same ep, i still cant believed i watched this show.
- BE BOOH BOP IS OFFICIALLY MY BOYFRIEND I CALL DIBS, boy literally saved the day.(also boy howdy his tux sure was classy!)
- petition to make haggar main villain? shes 509865478658759 times more badass than lotor and zarkon combined, the gurl is The Shit
- also: I Did Not Expect Intergalactic Nuclear Weapon To Be A Thing a story by me (i fucking called it btw)
- ALLURAS FACE WHEN SHE WAS TOLD TO PLAY KEITH? a highlight of the season honestly
- also also, let us all celebrate the comeback of my Favs TM Nyma, Beezer and Rolo. (lets take three (3) seconds to appreciate them, blz.)
also most important thing in the show:
- kaltenecker is back thus confirming what i always knew which is that lance loves milk and has very strong bones, thanks for coming to my ted talk.
