So I started rewatching Voltron again last night on a whim, since I’ve only seen each episode once and I wanted to have it all be fresh in my mind when the new season drops on August 4th. And now that I have my plance shipping goggles on, I couldn’t help but notice a few moments that slipped my notice before.
One of which is this scene! It’s taking place right as Lance is considering whether or not to trust the Blue Lion and take the others through the worm hole. It’s a big decision, and as he decides to go through with it, Pidge places her hand on his shoulder.
Now, immediately before this moment, her hand is clenched in a little fist, hovering above him, and she could easily have placed her hand on the back of the chair, like Hunk. But you see this little moment of decision, this very deliberate choice she makes to place her hand on his shoulder as he makes the very tough call to move forward and fly them into an uncertain abyss.
It’s a gesture of true trust and belief, and I love it. ❤️
