I like to think that Lily trusted Lupin till the end. Like, she saw beyond the whole “he’s a werewolf and Voldemort is getting popular among them” canon, but agreed to tell Peter about their secret location because Lupin would be the second obvious choice. I also like to think that Dorcas was Voldemort’s first guess of the keeper, as she was friends with the muggle one, thus resulting in her death when he got nothing from her, and then he aimed on the least obvious James’ friend - Peter.
I mean, in general, I keep getting stuck on… okay so the galra first arrive at Earth’s solar system a year before the main timeline of the show, and grab Shiro and the Holts off Kerberos.
A year later, the empire has just gotten close enough to Earth to find out the Blue Lion is there. A cruiser heads in that direction and Ulaz organizes Shiro’s escape to get there first.
Except somehow, for Keith to exist, if he is half-human as we’ve been led to believe, at least one galra had to have made contact with at least one human. Since Keith is in the 17-19 age range according to the writers, that would mean, simply, something like twenty years before the empire even touched the edge of Earth’s solar system for the first time someone was there.
Possibly, even longer, if we assume that coming to trust and love each other didn’t happen overnight to Keith’s parents.
Overwhelmingly, from what we’ve seen, the Blade’s attention is on the empire. (They are a rebel group fighting Zarkon). While it’s possible they might be scouting ahead of the empire, it doesn’t make sense to me that they’d be scouting that far ahead. Unlike the empire, they don’t have anywhere remotely approaching the size to just carelessly throw people into the depths of space like that.
If they were aiming for Earth specifically for some reason- it doesn’t explain why Kolivan would be so initially incredulous that someone from Earth could have one of his organization’s weapons. If it’s worth running off to a tiny, pre-contact planet that nobody has ever heard of before then Kolivan would be waiting on those results and it doesn’t make sense Keith’s mom wouldn’t report back. It makes less sense she’d hide that she had a child, especially because leaving her weapon with Keith would seem to suggest she meant for him to make his way back to the Blade.
For Kolivan to not immediately consider this might be Mom Kogane’s child that’d suggest he doesn’t know she has one. Perhaps he did suspect, but without Shiro or Keith able to give him solid answers he resorted to the trial to try and shake things loose- but I feel like his response to Keith awakening the weapon would be more assured if he suspected from the beginning.
And then like… why all the secrecy and carefully hiding Dad Kogane, if the only thing remotely interesting about him is he knows about Keith’s mom? Considering Keith looks perfectly human, if he had nothing to hide besides dating an alien there’s no reason for this unassuming-looking guy to personally go live in the desert, invest in a bunch of mysterious equipment, and then disappear without a trace. Even if he’s aware of and concerned about the empire- as far as he knows they’re a very, very long way from Earth. After all it took them, once again, something like twenty years before they even made it to the moons of Pluto.
Also, while this is the most menial, irrelevant detail, I’m kind of incredulous that they’d put a prominent facial scar on him unless there’s some kind of story behind it. People like Iverson, Kolivan and Sendak I can see because they’re all soldiers (or in Iverson’s, likely an ex-soldier graduated to more bureaucratic inclinations) but Dad Kogane is ostensibly a civilian on a peaceful planet. Sure maybe he just hit himself in the face with a ladder one time but this is fiction and I am skeptical.
EXCLUSIVE: Sony Pictures is setting Gina Prince-Bythewood to direct Silver & Black, the film that is based on Silver Sable & Black Cat (aka Felicia Hardy) characters from Sony’s Marvel Universe revolving around its signature hero Spider-Man. Prince-Bythewood just directed the pilot for Marvel’s upcoming Cloak & Dagger series on Freeform and completed the first season of Shots Fired, the drama she created with husband Reggie Rock Bythewood. That season-ender aired Wednesday on Fox. She will rewrite the Silver & Black script originated by Thor: The Dark World scribe Christopher Yost. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing, and Columbia Pictures execs Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing.
Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals while Black Cat is an acrobatic cat burglar (real name Felicia Hardy), who had a tangled romantic relationship with the webslinger in the Spider-Man comics. Both were antagonists and allies to Spider-Man. This film will cast up and is meant to follow Venom, the Spider-Man universe expansion film that will star Tom Hardy with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer directing. Spider-Man: Homecoming, the Jon Watts-directed film that stars Tom Holland as high school student Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego, bows July 7.
On the feature front, Prince-Bythewood has directed and written Beyond The Lights, Love & Basketball and The Secret Life of Bees, and she becomes the latest female filmmaker to be set to direct a superhero film, a trend that started with Patty Jenkins helming Wonder Woman, which Warner Bros/DC opens June 2. Sony separately this week dated two other films directed by women, the Michelle MacLaren-directed The Nightingale and the Elizabeth Banks-directed Charlie’s Angels, right after the studio set Catherine Hardwicke for the Gina Rodriguez-starrer Miss Bala. Barbie will also be directed by a woman, and the studio has Lucia Aniello directing Rough Night, its first R-rated comedy in two decades directed by a female. CAA reps Prince-Bythewood.
