AfterBuzz Interview Quote:

Interviewer 1: Lance had a good little bit in the last episode of this season that I thought was very poignant.

Jeremy: Yea, his little pep  talk with Allura? He definitely has those tender moments, especially. I think Lance is also really good at, like, he knows when someone needs to step up and take that, and there’s not someone else there to do that. He’s just, he ends up being a really good team player.

Interviewer 2: And it is interesting for a character like Lance who, as we previously discussed, he’s very comfortable being in the spotlight. He likes being the center of attention.

Jeremy: Yes! He loves it, yea.

Interviewer 2: So for him to be able to kind of step back and be like, “No, you can do this, I believe in you!” That’s a good quality.

Jeremy: Yea and at this point—like you guys were saying earlier—they’ve definitely grown as a team. They’re like a family now. So it’s also that respect and that care and that love for each person on the team. And so yea, he is confident being like, “I know you can do this. Nobody else can right now, it’s all you. Get it!” As opposed to being like, “Oh wait, I think I can do something!” He doesn’t need to do that.

Lauren: And you know, Lance started in the Blue Lion, which is a support lion. It holds Voltron up. And he’s since graduated to the right hand, which is like the ultimate support to the head. And I think it’s kind of an indication of what’s beneath that surface. That guy who loves to be in the spotlight, but really, he’s really good at knowing everyone else’s strengths and being that team player.

Joaquim: I think, looking deeper though, he’s got—He comes from a big family, right?

Jeremy: He does.

Joaquim: So I think within his family dynamic he’s very much maybe that guy. I think to people outside, he wants to be front and center.

Lauren: He wants the attention.

Jeremy: He wants to show some uniquity, because there is that big family and stuff, so it’s like he kinda wants to be a little more front and center.

Jeremy, Lauren, and Joaquim discuss Lance’s role in the team

it’s still so strange to me that former tjlc folks can analyze the shit of 10 episodes of the show and then believe mark and steven are suddenly terrible writers and that there’s no way to apply a tjlc analysis to the last 3 episodes…….like you see but you do not observe
