After a daring mission at a key Galra outpost, the team considers a risky alliance. One Paladin leads a journey to retrieve an important prisoner.
Following a lead from Lotor, the Paladins stage an assault on a advanced sentry construction facility. The Paladins are still unsure about Lotor's allegiance, so he offers them something more: the location of Commander Samuel Holt. Matt and Pidge lead Rolo, Nyma, and Beezer to the prison. Pidge draws away the Galra Empire's fleet while the others infiltrate the facility. Freeing prisoners, Matt finds out that his father has already been moved. Returning to the Castle of Lions, the Paladins receive a message from Zarkon informing them that he is willing to trade Commander Holt for Lotor.
"You can let go of him now."
"I'd rather not."
