    Slav was mentioned to have created the gravity generater back in episode 3.and Allura was right that they couldn’t wait and longer to do the mission because the would be on the lookout for new spies.i don’t think the Druids let Thace go, they had no way a knowing the blade could do that. And look again, Haggar did put up a barrier.

      Pretty sure they definitely intentionally did that as a trap but I’ll look again and lol there was a barrier?? nice.

    Interesting to hear your finale predictions with me knowing what will happen. You were right on some stuff, but most of it you were way off. Granted I was way off on my predictions.

    The Zutara discussion took years off my life, because I was forced to remember it exists.

    On a more serious note I take issue with calling anything Allura did racist, let’s avoid calling someone having a negative reaction to an oppressive force in universe racist. Especially one that enacted a genocide of her people. I know it’s easier to say but it’s not right. Not her responsibility to react positively, and she didn’t do anything besides brush off Keith(that we saw) anyway. All that being said I hated the plotline as it serviced nothing, they didn’t get into her character, her past, how she was really grappling with well placed prejudices when she finds this out about Keith. They don’t get into what it means in the context of someone she knew not being exactly what she thought even though nothing about him personally had changed. We didn’t even get the conversation where he reveals it to them so we could get her initial reaction to contextualize/compare to future reactions. It was just kind of this thing that happened and then she hugs it out with Keith because he might die and then it’s over. It was a waste of time imo and I don’t like how they handled or resolved it. I’d rather they not have done it at all and just had her react positively since they couldn’t get a handle on her reacting negatively. Idk if you’d agree on them not doing it or if you were okay with it’s presence even if it wasn’t super good, I’m curious.
