  • Episode Description
  • Pidge and the other members of The Voltron Force return to the Castle of Lions safely. They realize that Yurak will launch another attack come dawn. They also realize that only Voltron can defeat Haggar's Robeast. So The Voltron Force and Coran return to King Alfor's tomb to search for the missing Black Lion key. While there they see a group of Space Mice. Thinking the mice may know the location of the key to the Black Lion they trap the mice in a cage to question them. Upon discovering this Alura is appalled since the mice have been her friends since childhood. Alura talks to the mice and asks them about they key. They tell her they thought the key was pretty and took it to their nest as a good luck charm. They are released from the cage and return the key to The Voltron Force. With all five lions the Voltron Force heads into battle and defeats Haggar's Robeast handily.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Notes (1)

    • Voltron is formed for the first time in this episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: Have those spacemice discovered the fountain of youth? If they entertained allura as a child(seemingly 6-10 years ago by how old she looked) and they look the same age as back then. Under normal circumstances they'd probably be long dead by now.

    • Goof: In the sequence where they go through the elevators to the lions. For a split second between the elevators and the vehicles that take them to the lions the one guy(sven?) is replaced with allura(most likely just using future footage since she'll take over for him for like the rest of the show as far as I'm aware). Goof: Also, when keith boards the black lion it's not in statue form, then it is and uncovers itself.(Again, most likely they just didn't bother to change the footage for one episode)

    • When the man shows Pidge the way through the cave tunnel to the castle and when Pidge goes through the castle to the defenses room his outfit changes from the white and green Voltron team uniform to his regular green outfit several times.

    Allusions (1)

    • When they form voltron for the first time they say 'Go-lion' which according to my research is the original japanese name for voltron. Also hunk says 'Go lion' at the beginning of his sentence in the preview for the next episode.
