    Here is a new theory, perhaps the mysterious silent Gorra, is either Keith’s mother or wait for it, Keith’s half brother or sister.

    I’m gonna say now that by coincidence, that the Galra was Keith’s mom or something. And I would definitely take the Yupper over Flopsie, I think flopsie was cuter but the yupper can talk so clearly it’s cooler.
    And I’m Team Allura getting love in her life in any form, considering she’s lost so much I don’t see why it would be reducing her to anything if she were to get a love interest(of any gender) if it made her happy and allowed her to explore different facets of her life. Provided that they don’t do what they’re doing now and giver her absolutely nothing to do besides have ‘I’m in love’ scenes with someone(again this goes for any gender love interest) because that would piss me off to Dylan levels lol. Give her bonding time with all the paladins and let her leave the damn ship and those mice for more than half an episode. And do it all season long.
    All that being said I’m not a fan of her and Shiro and I’m very against her and Keith like that one just feels off, she comes off very older sister to me. If I had to grin and bear it I’d be fine with Shiro but I’d rather that not happen. Shipping talk for this show is just weird, it feels like it’s just not a thing that should be happening. ArmLeg nonwithstanding.

      Yeah agree, I’m not opposed to Allura the person (or alien or whatever) being in love, it’s just her in a romantic dynamic in the context of this narrative that’s not appealing right now. She needs to be a better character, do more things, have her love interest be a better character, have some sort of actual chemistry with them etc etc.

    I want Sloth to join the crew, that would be fun.
