Voltron: Legendary Defender “Knights Of Light Part 2”

Season Eight, Episode Ten.

On the one hand, I feel like something actually happened in this episode.   The plot advanced and we learned at least what Haggar/Honerva is up to.

On the other hand, I am having a hard time caring since it took this long in the show’s final season to get there.

So, apparently, Haggar’s whole plan is to break through to another reality where Zarkon and Lotor are still alive so she can have her family again and be happy.

Wasn’t that the Kingpin’s Into the Spider-Verse plan?  It didn’t work out too well for him either.

Then again, Pidge suggests that breaking those barriers with Lotor’s mech will destroy everything and everyone in every reality ever.  That sounds bad.

All this plays out on the mental plain as the Paladins, original and extra-crispy, fight their way to the center of Haggar’s mind to find out what she’s up to.  That included finding and ridding Zarkon of his own corruption, but that just makes me wonder if that affects the Zarkon who died a couple seasons ago or just the one in Haggar’s mind?

Also, Haggar killed the other Paladins, or at least the three whose name I didn’t know.

Allura, meanwhile, keeps insisting on using that dark power as the only way to get to the center of Haggar despite both Lance and her father saying it’s a really bad idea.

She’s not sounding too friendly every time she insists it’s OK.  I am not sure she’s right.

So, running through Haggar’s memories, fighting her monsters, and a whole mess of other problems gets them her plan, and combining spiritually with all of the original Paladins (even Zarkon) allows Voltron to punch his way out to the real world again.  But Allura’s in a coma, so maybe that wasn’t the best plan after all.

Three episodes left to save reality, people.  Wake that Space Racist up!
