Lance is falling apart
Lance is so freaking crucial to Voltron and it is killing me that everyone, especially Keith, are not realizing how much LANCE DOESNT KNOW THAT.
They make fun of him giving himself nicknames all the time! Call him goofball, deny him being a sharpshooter. While I understand that they are trying to joke around, and think that Lance gets it because he is the most easygoing and well… goofiest of them all. They don’t really think he will be insulted because he is already just SOOO full of himself, right? THE DUDE IS CRUMBLING AND NO ONE IS NOTICING.
Hopefully this is addressed in S4, especially since the Keith and Lance scene never even had a proper healthy resolution. Kieth just reassured things are ok for now and to focus on missions. Keith even tried to joke around with Lance to cheer him up, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the comment made Lance even feel worse by making fun of how he counted. I say that because he stopped walking before the door closes, it seemed like he had more to say…
Lance needs a hug. Everyone does, but maybe Lance needs a double hug.
