Voltron - The Way Forward

Captured and trapped aboard a Galra cruiser run by Zethrid (Jamie Gray Hyder) and Ezor (Kimiko Glenn), the Paladins' long road home continues. With any hope of rescue centered around Coran (Rhys Darby), who managed to accidentally lock himself in the Black Lion's cargo hold, things look bleak for our heroes. Luckily, he's got some help in the mice and the unexpected reappearance of Acxa (Erica Luttrell). Although there is very little in terms of space battles, "The Way Forward" offers action aboard the Galra ship as the Paladins make their escape only to discover some shocking news.

Finishing with the Lions and Paladins of Voltron free, and with a new ally in Acxa, the episode also reveals why Zethrid was so anxious to get answers from our heroes. Apparently Voltron has been missing for quite a long time (far, far longer than the Paladins believed), along with Lotor who has not reappeared. The galaxy believes Voltron to be lost and the universe appears to have moved on without the Paladins in their absence. With the Lions still woefully low on power, the Paladins have a new reason to make it home and discover the current state of a universe without Voltron.
