You people keep making theories which makes me over analyze and make theories!
Alright one more then I need to stop! Like seriously I can’t keep this up, I NEED TO STOP!
So this is more like what I think will happen in season 3 (which I’m certain won’t happen but I want to say it anyway!) and it’s more of a what I want to happen. I’m sorry this is so long!
So Lotor is coming to town and he’ll be the next big threat. I know everyone makes him the big flamboyant guy who hits on Lance but I don’t know if that’s what they’re going to do to him (I would be lying if I said I didn’t like the idea though)
What I think they’re going to do is have him attack the paladins weak points, or more specifically Lance. Voltron is good at build up and hinting at things a season early (case in point: Galra Keith was hinted in season one). Lance was feeling worthless in season two, I think they’re going to touch on that in season three. I know Lance and Hunk didn’t have enough screen time or development but season two was mainly about Keith being Galra and Shiro trying to have a stronger bond with Black.
Hunk is also someone who had good moments like being the only one who stood up for Keith when Allura was treating him horribly. Hunk is one of the supportive characters, more specifically for Keith. And I think season three Shiro should bond with Lance.
Now back to Lance, the whole seventh wheel thing got to him, as well as fans. He wants to feel important but instead he feels worthless, like they don’t need him and I want Lotor to use that against Lance.
I want him to tell Lance lies and make him feel awful and believe in those lies. I want this to happen while Keith is the leader. (Shiro is coming back, they can’t have him magically disappear when he just got his bayard back), and have Keith struggle with Lance feeling inferior. In season one and two you can clearly see that Lance is one of the few people who can keep Keith calm (Shiro is the only other person I can think of), technically speaking Lance is the only one in the group now who can keep Keith calm and under control.
I feel like this could help strengthen the bond between those two, hell those two have been bonding since season one, and it could lead to something more.
If Lotor does in fact “fall in love” with Lance then I want Lotor to lie to Lance not only to break Voltron but to have Lance all to himself. Have almost a possessive type of crush that is dangerous. Lotor could make Lance feel like Voltron is better off without him. Most likely that won’t happen but it’s an idea.
Now Lance is hinted to be bisexual, and if I’m correct someone, I’m not sure who, said Lance is going to fall in love with one of the paladins in season three. I can only see Keith being that paladin because those two have bonded since season one and are showing signs of caring, jealousy, being protective, and working well together. So Lotor can come in and push Lance, or even Keith, over the edge where one will have to help the other.
Now this is a stupid silly theory, sorry for no pictures. It’s long and stupid and I talked about this with my sister so this is both of our ideas combined. You can believe what you want, we won’t know anything till season three in September. So something to look forward to! Anyways I won’t promise anything but hopefully this is the last theory I make.
