ok so i'm watching what's of 80s voltron on netflix and the one where allura gets stabbed by a cat ended on a very confusing scene: lotor breaks a wine glass and it shows allura... then a different lady!! who is she?? is that his mom??? (ur the 80s expert around here so i'm turning my trust into u poof)
in golion, the girl that shows up in the wine cup is actually his altean mother! in 80s voltron, they obviously did some heavy editing to change the story–so of course–to avoid sincline/lotor’s oepidus obsession, they took the chance to make lotor’s mom as “allura”, they did the same thing with shiro–in golion, shiro dies in the 6th episode and his younger brother, ryou takes his place to help the team. meanwhile, in 80s voltron, sven (shiro) gets “injured” and is sent to planet ebb for hospitalization–while he was there apparently ebb was under attack by doom and he was captured and enslaved. they used ryou to make it look like “sven” got captured, ya feel? so yeah!!
