Voltron: Legendary Defender (2016) s08e12 Episode Script

The Zenith

[theme music] Paladins, report status.
- I'm offline! - Me, too.
Uh, guys, are you seeing this? [Lance] What are those things doing? [Pidge] That's how she's getting in.
[Keith] What do you mean? Honerva! She's using those wings to pierce the barriers between realities.
It's her entry point! - [alarm blaring] - Allura, come in.
Are you there? [grunting] Shiro, I read you.
Honerva combined her beast with Lotor's Sincline.
She has the comet ore and, with it, the ability to traverse realities.
I'm headed to my Lion now.
[Sam] Our universe is collapsing, just like the day we lost the Castle of Lions.
Those wings are causing the very fabric of our reality to disintegrate! [powering up] Then we're gonna stop that thing before it breaks through.
Yellow Lion's back! [Keith] Hunk, get your passengers back to the Atlas.
[Hunk] Copy that.
[Honerva] My loyal warriors, Merla proved disloyal.
She turned her back on our mission and the future of Altea.
But you two have remained by my side, and you will know true victory.
The glory of Altea will be yours.
[Pidge] Those Robeasts are headed our way! - [gasps] Just in time! - [powering up] My Lion's responding! [roars] Mine, too.
[Keith] Allura, do you copy? Can you get to your Lion? We're gonna need Voltron.
Hold on.
I'm coming! In the meantime, the Atlas has you covered.
Wait, what about the collapsing universe? We need to stop it! Coran, we're counting on you to figure something out.
What? Me? I don't know anything about that! Then find someone who does! [Keith] We need to stop that weapon before it breaks through realities.
Paladins, do everything you can to keep the Robeasts distracted.
Let's give the Atlas a shot.
Atlas crew, prepare for transformation sequence.
Nice shot! [Keith] Guys, I'm going in to stop Honerva! Still.
No! [Iverson] MFE pilots, report to your hangars! Stand by for launch! I have an idea how we can stop the collapsing of space-time.
I'll grab Slav and Sam.
You two get the Alteans and meet me back here in ten doboshes! [Hunk] Now, Pidge! [grunts] Ah! Fall back! Allura, now's your chance! We can't get past them, so we're gonna have to defeat them.
Paladins, on me! [Keith] Form Voltron! [roars] [Allura] Remember, those weapons can siphon our energy, so we need to avoid a direct hit.
- Pidge, arm cannon! - [grunts] [Pidge] It's the Altean! [Lance] Why is she helping us? [Merla] Please, do not harm them.
They were misguided, much like I was.
We all were! [groaning] [Keith] Pilot capsule still intact.
No! [Coran] We need an escort to Honerva's pyramid structure! What? Right now? Yes! The sooner we go, the higher the probability that we can use the Alteans to stop the impending space-time rupture! It's similar to how we stopped the rupture when Voltron entered the Quintessence field.
Only this time, that superstructure will be the energy amplification conductor and the Alteans will be the energy source.
[Coran] We're still working out how to transfer their Quintessence into the structure, but, you know, some things are just gonna have to be figured out on the fly! Get a team in place.
[Keith] Final Robeast out of commission! Hunk, form cannon! - [beeping] - [grunting] I've got lock! [explosion] Honerva has pierced realities.
[all gasp] [Keith] Come on, we're going in! Atlas, stay on me! [stutters] I'm afraid the Atlas can't do that.
Coran's right.
It isn't made out of the same ore.
It can't traverse realities.
Then we're going in alone.
Actually, that appears to be problematic as well.
[Keith] What? The statistical likelihood of Voltron succeeding against Honerva in a one-on-one battle is well below improbable.
We'll have a better chance than if we don't try at all.
- [booming] - [gasps] [Allura] Balmera.
[Lance] What's going on? It's a convuldrum, the converging of Balmeras.
What called them here? Shay.
[Balmeras calling] [all grunting] [all screaming] Quiznak! What just? Whoa! No way! This is crazy! I don't know what just happened, but now we have a chance.
Let's stop Honerva.
Coran, we'll need you to secure the area and find a way to suppress this rift.
Yes, sir! [all screaming] Wait! I know how to get the Altean energy into the structure.
Drop Sam, Slav and I off at the pyramid.
Then I'll need you to take the Alteans to the Balmera.
You're wearing the right socks today, aren't you? Is this [Pidge] It's an alternate Altea.
[Lance] And it looks like this reality is crumbling, just like ours! [Hunk] How come it's disintegrating so quickly? Those wings created a sort of cosmic tunnel in one blast.
The rift must lead directly to the reality Honerva's been looking for.
[Shiro] And any reality that those wings bored through is falling apart.
We have to keep going! We must hurry! Okay, I think this is it.
- Powering the amplification module.
- I'll redirect the target to the rift.
If we hit it with enough energy, it should seal.
Are the Alteans in place? [N-7] They are set.
[gasps] [Allura] All these innocent lives.
There's no limit to what Honerva will do or the lives she'll tear apart to get what she wants.
[Shiro] That's why we need to stop her.
Even then, I fear she's started a chain reaction that can never be undone.
[Coran] We're in place! Balmeras, channel your energy into the pyramid! Yes, it's working! The channeled energy from the Balmeras seems to be holding the rift together.
[all screaming] [grunts] Countermeasures! [groans] Form sword! [growls] Our current power level isn't enough to maintain the rift! [Coran] Then we'll hold it as long as we can.
Every tick gives Voltron a chance.
Coran, it's Krolia.
What can we do to help? [Coran] Krolia! Kolivan! Thank the ancients you're here! We need all the energy we can harness to prevent the rift from expanding.
Copy that! Galra fleet, adjust the frequency of your ion cannons and aim at the pyramid structure.
[all screaming] Come on, please.
A little longer! Voltron needs us.
- [explosion] - Ah! This is where it ends for you! [groans, pants] We need to get up.
I can't move.
The ship's not responding.
Honerva, she's absorbed all our strength.
This reality it's over.
[Keith] No.
We've always done the impossible.
Our strength is our bond.
Our power comes from each other.
As long as we're a team, we stand a chance.
- Sendak.
- [groans] [Keith] We've saved our universe countless times, but now all the realities are in need of Voltron.
So this isn't the end just yet.
We need to get back up and stop Honerva once and for all! Fire boosters! [both grunt] [gasps] [groans] The Galra fleet have depleted all their energy, and the Balmerans and Alteans are at their limit.
At this rate, we won't be able to contain the rift! [gasps] [all grunting] - [men shouting] - [blade slicing] [man groans] Ha! [sighs] You're getting faster.
Not half as fast as the emperor.
- [booms] - [both gasp] Stay back! What's your name? You don't recognize me? I've searched beyond the stars to be here.
I said stay back! To be with you.
And to be with my son.
[Zarkon] Is it truly you? It is.
I never thought I'd see you again.
I never doubted.
My memory of you and Lotor kept me alive.
Tell me, where is my child? [Zarkon] I vowed to raise our son as you would have wanted.
He excels in his Altean studies.
Lotor has his mother's intellect.
Empress Honerva it is an honor to see you once more.
All of Altea will cherish this day.
[Allura] Please, come with me.
Your son awaits your presence.
My son.
Mother? Please, my child, come to me.
Lotor, it's okay.
It's your mother.
She has returned.
She's not my mother! I may appear changed, but I assure you, my love for you is that of a mother for her child.
Come to me.
She is not my mother.
Don't speak like that.
[Lotor] My mother is dead.
And you cannot replace her! Perhaps this is overwhelming for the boy.
Please, if we had some time [Honerva] Time? You speak to me of time? I've spent lifetimes trying to get back.
Countless worlds have fallen in the wake of my efforts to return to you.
And this is how you welcome me? My own child, my own husband question who I am? I have sacrificed more than you will ever know! [thrusters humming] [Zarkon] What is that? No, it cannot be! You brought this abomination upon us? You are not the empress.
You are not my wife! Guards! Guards! If there is no place in this universe for me, then there will be no universe at all.
[people screaming] [thuds]
