Team Voltron devises a plan to continue the coalition's momentum and take control of more Galra territory. Lotor makes a big move.
Prince Lotor leads his generals to the remains of Daibazaal, where he has secretly erected a gate around the inter-reality rift where his mother had worked. Lotor uses the last of his Quintessence to enter the field between the realities to collect the infinite supply of Quintessence therein.
The coalition begins its plan to reclaim part of the empire. Pidge and Hunk disable a communication satellite while the Blade of Marmora and a team led by Matt hijack large cannons that they use against the Galra. Coran then signals the coalition forces to attack the Galra en masse.
Once Acxa, Ezor, and Zethrid realize that Lotor's gate does not work, Acxa stuns him with the intent to return him to Zarkon in exchange for a pardon. However, Lotor manages to escape his handcuffs once he wakes, and flies away in his cruiser.
The satellite that Pidge and Hunk have disabled begins to work again, and Haggar learns of the Empire's defeat but is not particularly bothered by it.
"Counting down in five ticks... four... three... two... one..."
"No pressure. Just the entire coalition rests on us disabling this Galra comm channel."

- Lotor dislocating his shoulders to escape was Lauren Montgomery's idea. Staff had trouble figuring out how he would escape cuffs that could not be picked and when they decided on dislocation, even the storyboards by Montgomery made them uncomfortable.
