We’re back on Earth! This week’s Voltron episodes cover what happened on Earth during the Paladins’ three-year absence in the void of space, and hosts Katie Cullen and Megan Salinas are here to break it down alongside AJ LoCascio, rejoining the show’s cast as new character James Griffin! Earth’s technology advances at a staggering rate thanks to Altean and Galran tech and the unceasing work of Sam Holt; unfortunately, it’s not quite enough to stand up to the inevitable Galra invasion of Earth, led by Sendak in yet another villainous return. A dangerous mission to a supply depot nearly loses Veronica (Lance’s sister, as we soon find out), and instead introduces us to the underground resistance and gets the Garrison the much-needed supplies to finish the as-yet-unveiled ship Atlas. Earth manages to get out one last distress signal, reaching the Paladins just as they head for home.
The Voltron After Show:
