Voltron: Legendary Defender (2016) s08e13 Episode Script

The End Is the Beginning

We have to take the fight as far away from here as - Now let's finish this! - Incoming! We can't let this happen.
She can't get away.
Is everyone okay? - Yep.
- Here.
Yes.
Does anyone have eyes on Honerva? What is this place? I I'm not sure.
This is the beginning.
And the end.
Can Can you all feel that? These strands are The only remaining realities left in existence.
This place is the source of time, of space, of Everything.
I will end this once and for all! She's destroying all realities! Ah! She's destroyed everything.
There's only one reality left.
No.
Please.
If Honerva destroys this final strand, all of existence will end with it! Where are we? The connected consciousness of all existence.
You think you're safe here? Soon, all will cease to exist.
You have to stop this.
All these worlds, all these realities, they deserve to live.
Those realities are flawed and weak, living out the same pathetic cycle of war and pain.
There is beauty in their flaws.
I lost my father, my mother, my planet, to this war but I've gained a new family and a purpose stronger than any I could have imagined.
Humans began very flawed.
There were wars, hate.
But with each mistake, they learned and grew.
And now we reach out to other worlds to pass on those same lessons and spread them across the entire universe like your people once did.
And with every new world touched, the message grows.
Every world, every reality.
We wouldn't exist without the others.
Our differences are what make us stronger.
You think your words mean anything to me? I've lived multiple lifetimes, and all of them filled with pain and loss.
If I cannot experience the simple joys of life, why should anyone else? There was a time when you loved more than just your family, a time when your fascination with how vast the universe is gave way to your desire to help and uplift others.
The beginning of Altean alchemy.
You tried to help him.
- The tales you grew up with - He was happy.
He deserved better.
Better than I could give.
Lotor may have been misguided, but, ultimately, he wanted to preserve life.
Honor your son.
Help me change this.
I'm sorry but the damage is done.
There's nothing left to save.
I can change the Quintessence within your vessel.
Your son helped me learn how to transform it from a destructive force into a life-giving force.
But I cannot do it alone.
But that would require I know the risks.
I'm afraid this is where we part ways.
- Wait, what? - Allura.
- What? - No.
This is our only chance to undo what has been done, to save all of existence.
I have to take it.
It is my purpose.
Your paths go on.
Mine ends here.
But there is no Voltron without you.
Voltron isn't needed anymore.
The rest of the work is up to the people.
And they'll have you to guide them, Hunk.
Goodbye, Pidge.
I'm gonna miss you, Allura.
Remain curious and fearless.
Most of them won't know the sacrifice you made so they could live.
And they'll never need to.
Your selflessness taught me that.
Thank you.
You never have to thank me for anything.
Keith I cannot thank you enough for all you've given me.
Allura, when you accepted me, it helped me to accept myself.
Thank you.
There is greatness in your heart and in your actions.
No.
Allura, there There has to be another way.
There is no other way.
This is all we have.
But you're too important to the cause.
You're You're too important to me.
I'll always be with you, Lance.
And I'll always love you.
Is this? Are we? Yeah.
It's our reality.
She did it.
She saved us all.
I don't remember that planet being there before.
It's Altea.
With the return of Planet Daibazaal, the Galra Empire is at a crossroads.
For too long, the people of this extraordinary civilization have been manipulated by a dictatorship that placed a misguided sense of self-preservation above all else.
It was a tragic, unfortunate series of events that led us down this dark, never-ending path of power and greed.
But now we, the citizens of the Galra Empire, have an opportunity to make right all of the injustices set into motion by our forefathers.
Because of the sacrifice made by Princess Allura, we have been given a second chance to come together in rebuilding the Galra Empire by joining the Galactic Coalition and ushering in a new era of peace across the universe.
Your armies have attacked us at every turn.
If you had just agreed to our terms, the attacks would not be necessary.
You are occupying a peaceful settlement! - Our people were starving! - Chancellors.
Please, sit.
Dinner is served.
The filet of bandrillo, spiced with the seasoning from the plains of planet Mabo, alongside pilaf of long-grain forlongian brill from the vast fields of Antidoll.
And it's accompanied by a cider made from the petals of the Altean juniberry flower.
Bon appétit.
Delicious! It wouldn't be possible without the cooperation of all three planets of the Xritoo system.
Much like my cooking crew, comprised of aliens from all across the cosmos working together to bring you this delicious meal.
Princess Allura, the very person we celebrate on this day, once said, "We are always stronger together.
" If the people of your planets work together, so much more can be achieved.
Honor her by following in her footsteps and walk in the path towards peace.
All done.
So, have you been thinking of any names? Yeah, I was thinking of Chip.
You and your puns.
Katie, your father's got the teludav all warmed up for you.
Better get going.
You don't wanna be late.
Don't worry, Pidge, I'll have Chip all ready to go by the time you get back.
Just don't initialize until I return.
I want to witness Chip's first moments of consciousness.
- Have a good time, honey.
- I will, Dad.
- Construction is on course.
- Ah, most excellent! How are the preparations for tonight's feast coming? It has to be perfect.
It will be the first Celebration of Allura.
The first of many to come.
As soon as we can get access to the location, we can begin setup.
But it's currently occupied by your friend, sir.
And had Princess Allura not seen that there was still good left in Honerva, we most likely would not be sitting here today.
She grew to understand that there is good in everyone.
Even Emperor Zarkon? Yes, even Emperor Zarkon.
Do you miss her? I do.
Very much.
But I'm reminded of her everywhere I look.
So in that way, she's still very much with me.
With all of us, actually.
Now that you no longer pilot the Red Lion, what do you do? Well, I help run a small farm back on my home planet with my family.
It's a simple life.
Just the way I like it.
All right, everybody, I think Paladin Lance has someplace to be in a few doboshes.
- And you all have class to get back to.
- Aw! I mean, seriously, though, Earth has come a long way.
It's a hub for all alien activity now that my dad's stabilized his teludav technology.
That'll make travel on the Atlas much easier.
We'll be able to reach many more sectors with the improved mobility.
Not to mention the supplies we'll save with the shorter journey.
Yeah, yeah! We'll have so much more room for the cooking ingredients.
People are just so much easier to reason with when they're full.
Man, this diplomacy thing isn't nearly as easy as Allura made it look.
Right? But then, she did make everything look easy.
Speaking of which, how are things going on Daibazaal? We're calling for an election to select the Galran representative for the Galactic Coalition.
So that's a step in the right direction.
Let me guess.
They asked you to be their leader and you said no? Yeah, pretty much.
Classic Keith.
Allura would be proud of your decision, Keith.
I think she knew that you would always be the key to the Galra's future.
Just around this table, I see so many lives touched by her actions.
For some of us she was a diplomat, a teacher, a leader, and a friend.
But to those of us around this table, she will always be family.
To Allura! To Allura.
Huh?
