Okay, well I’ve seen some upsetting stuff lately about Hunk not getting any character development and how he was dumb downed to nothing but food jokes and fart jokes and all that other stuff and I’m like…really. …what show were you watching?
Hunk had a lot of development.
Those Blue Space Cookies he was making, he had to translate Altean Recipes, to English and he had to find the ingredients in a language not of his own. (Pidge had to learn by simulation) Yes, his timing of the cookies were off, but he was making it by the Altean book.
The Conversation with Hunk and the Space Taco. He was talking about some major freaking Black Hole Physics there, using a taco as an example.
Let’s say you want to make it from Point A to Point B on a flat surface (tortilla ). If you travel in the straight line, it will take you longer to get to where you want to go.
Now if you fold the flat surface into a taco shape, Points A and B are closer and there for faster.
His thought process is food and it may work with him better then numbers and formulas. I mean, cooking is an art.
Look how in the Space Mall episode. Hunk was able to get people enjoying the food and cooking it the right way. People do not understand how much work goes into cooking. It’s chemistry, it’s math. It works for Hunk and it’s freaking amazing.
And if you think I’m gonna stop there.
When Keith and Shiro was with the Blades Galra, Hunk offered how to hack into Red using Frequency Waves. (A shout out to Episode 1 fraunhofer lines).
Then we had the famous Keith and Hunk Episode. Hunk was awkward at first, but he didn’t treat Keith like he was a problem. He saw that Keith was having issues and needed help, so Hunk made light of the situation.
Keith talked to Hunk, because Keith was afraid Allura would hate him and Hunk tired to help.
Hunk made Keith feel better enough to joke with him, that was wow. They worked well as a team, because of it, their interactions and teamwork was amazing. Hunk even teases Keith about being a Galra, making it more normal.
When Hunk and Keith got back, Allura thanked Hunk and ONLY Hunk. Hunk in that moment, didn’t take Allura’s shit and told her Keith was there too. No one else said a damn thing.
Hunk was the only one to call Allura out on it….There is so, so much more I can add, but if people are intrested, I’ll work more on it.
But YES, HUNK HAD DEVELOPMENT IN SEASON 2 AND PEOPLE IGNORED IT.
Hunk is more than food…but that is his thought process.
For wonderful chat about Hunk.
