Episode Transcript

Lions' Pride, Part 1 is the twelfth episode of the seventh season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. It was released on Netflix along with the rest of the season on August 10, 2018.


As a massive battle rages on, Shiro goes solo on a dangerous mission to bring down Sendak and save his friends -- and his home.

Plot Summary

Voltron begins to turn the tide of the battle in Earth's favor, but Samuel Holt soon realizes Sendak's plan. Using the Zaiforge Cannons, Sendak intends to combine their beams to destroy the Earth. Voltron tries to destroy Sendak's command ship, but soon find that the Cannons' launch facilities were also designed to defend the cannons.

Pidge proposes a plan to use the orbital reflectors that the Galra use to deflect the beams of the Zaiforge Cannons in an effort to deflect the beam away from Earth. While they move the reflectors into position, the MFE fighters launch on a mission to take out the launch facilities one by one.

The Paladins successfully deflect the beams from the Zaiforge Cannons, but the constant fire eventually causes them to buckle and break. The IGF-Atlas intercepts the beam, while Shiro infiltrates Sendak's ship and disrupts the control crystal. Shiro's efforts give the Paladins enough time to destroy the Zaiforge Cannons while the MFEs finish destroying the launch bases.

Sendak's ship plummets towards the Earth. The Lions guide the ship into an uninhabited area while Shiro and Sendak fight. Sendak gets the upper hand and looks to kill Shiro, but Keith arrives and kills Sendak. The Paladins victory is short-lived, however, as a meteor falls to Earth ...

  • Shiro should probably have used Cosmo to teleport onto Sendak's ship. He would have been part of the evacuated complement.
