In season 3, episode 2, we see that keith has been accepted by the black lion.
he doesn’t want to pilot it.
however, take a look at this.
this symbolically represents the characters’ POVs on this matter.
hunk, allura, and pidge are all on one side, close together, with calm, somewhat happy, accepting expressions. then we have lance. he’s distressed as well.
we know that in the last episode he was very much against keith being the leader. he had always been jealous of keith throughout the other seasons as well.
so here’s where stuff gets crazy
this is the moment.
this is the moment lance realizes what he has to do.
this is the moment when lance’s attitude changes forever.
don’t believe me? guess what iconic lil thing happens right after this.
those two frames,
those significant two seconds
marked the moment lance accepted keith.
as both an ally, and a friend.
