Voltron (2016–…): Season 8, Episode 8 - Episode #8.8 - full transcript

[theme music playing]

Tavo, I want to thank you
for speaking with me.

Forgive me, Princess Allura,
but we don't have much time.

-I'm sorry?

Once Honerva discovers
I'm speaking with you, it will be over.

Slow down.

-What are you trying to--?
-Listen to me.

Now that she has Lotor,
she will use him to destroy everything--




[Allura] I feel something.

-[alarm blaring]
-[all grunting]

Get them out of there!

Reverse the magnetic polarity
once the room is cleared.

The impulse prism just might stabilize
the foreign object.

[tech grunts]


-[button clicks]
-[energy humming]

This unit uses the ship's crystal
to energize the optronic vacuum casing.

It was designed to contain diseases,
but it should suffice

until we find a more permanent solution.

Thank you, Sam.

That thing, it was as if
it was communicating with me.

Whatever this is, it might be
how Honerva connects to the Alteans.

Perhaps you should get some rest.

It's best if everyone stays away from this
until we learn more about... [voice fades]

-[Sam] Allura?

[Allura] You're right.
Best to stay away.

[electronic chirping]

Captain, I'm picking up an abnormal signal

from planet Drazan
in the zeta-three sector.

Open a hailing frequency.
We need to find out what's going on.


This is Takashi Shirogane of the Voltron--

Well, if it isn't the Voltron Coalition.

And here I was thinking
you were afraid to show your face

after ruining the last Clear Day.

Yes, sorry about that.

[stammering] That was on me.

We noticed a lot of activity
on your planet's surface.

Are you in danger?

Opposite! [laughs]

We're celebrating Clear Day!

Hang on, isn't Clear Day
four movements from now?

Time dilation, you snarflaf!

It's right now!

So unless you'd like to waste
more of my time, I need to get back.

Are you sure hosting
a celebration is safe?

This sector has seen
a lot of hostile activity lately.

[chuckles] Oh, here we go.

I knew this was coming.

In fact, I just told my wife.

I said to her, "Just you wait.

You don't know them the way I do.

They promise to show up.

You tell everyone
that Voltron is coming to Clear Day.

Everyone gets excited.

Then Voltron never arrives,

and you're left with your top two paws
stuck in the rocks!"

We don't wanna ruin your holiday,
but we're--

We're having Clear Day, and that is that!

If you're so worried about our safety,

then how about you show up
and provide security?

Free of charge!

Veronica, make an announcement
to the Atlas.

We're going to Clear Day.

You sure you don't wanna head
to the carnival?

I'm pretty sure the Swathian Meerakeet
won't try to eat us.

I'm sure.

I haven't been feeling well,
especially after what happened to Tavo.

I need to rest.


Well, I could stay here with you,
keep you company if you want.

Please, go have fun.

Maybe you can win me a prize.

Something sparkly?

Yeah, okay.

Winning prizes is kinda my specialty.

I am a sharpshooter, after all.

[Shiro] I want you all
to enjoy yourselves today.

The celebration ends in five vargas.

It's important to remember
that while the Atlas patrols the skies,

we are the eyes and ears on the ground
looking for any suspicious activity.

These people are relying on us.

-[carnival music playing]
-[creatures speaking native languages]

[Coran] I pulled some strings and got
each of you ten complimentary tokens.

Use them for games, foods, rides.

-Where's Allura?
-She's going to stay back and rest.

I just need to find something
to bring back for her.

That's nice of you, Lance.

-I'll help, too.
-Me, three.

Let's remember why we came here
in the first place:

to provide security for the event.


Well, I better go find the arcade
and make sure it's safe, yeah!

Uh, me, too!

Me, three!

Uh, wait for me!

Keith, relax.
Go have fun.

If we're not here for protection,
then what are we doing here?

Morale on the Atlas is low
after what happened on Oriande.

Who knows? A few hours at the carnival
might give us the boost we need

to get back on track.

[Allura] Lance?
What are you doing here?

I thought you were going to the carnival.

That's a beautiful flower.

Where did you get it?

[Allura] Colleen gave it to me.

It's a real juniberry flower.

I assumed they had gone extinct.

[Lotor] You should know
better than anyone,

nothing ever truly goes extinct.

It's good to see you again, Princess.

How? How did you get in here?

You know, the ancients believed
that all of life began

with a single juniberry flower.

[blade rings]

I thought you'd be happy to see me.

What are you doing here?
I demand to know!

You and I desire the same thing.

We both seek to destroy Haggar.


Haggar is no longer.
She's Honerva now.

True. Though I could rename this
a highlands poppy,

you and I would still know
what it truly is.

The witch may change her name,
but she will always be a witch.

Be that as it may, she's too powerful.

There's nothing I can do
to counter her abilities.

You are mistaken.

Everything you need is here.


This entity holds the power you seek.

It is an ancient form of energy
that predates time itself.

It hails from the Quintessence Field.

Entities like this gave Haggar
the ability to conquer worlds

and control the universe for 10,000 years.

She recognizes the strength
it provides her, and she uses it.

If you can become one with the entity,

then the powers you gain
can defeat the witch.



[Melenor] I am so happy you're here.

You have arrived just in time.

[Allura] Just in time?
For what?

To save us.

Only you can protect us.



[Melenor] I am so proud of you.



It's-- It's okay.

It was only a dream.

[coin clinks]

I'm Coran, Coran,
the non-truth telling man.

Pick up that mallet
and bomp me on the cranker

before I can tell you a lie!

Bomp me enough times
and you'll win a great prize!

-[Pidge] Yeah-ha-ha! No. Come on!
-[Coran groaning]

[Coran] See here! Stop it!
Ooh! Ah!

[chatter, laughter]


Well, look who decided
to actually show up.

Good to see you, too, Burr.

Couldn't help but notice
the Blue Lion ain't here.

That's fine.

Can't expect Voltron to completely
follow through on their promises.

What's going on over here?

That's the arm wrestling contest.

-It ain't for people like you.
-Why is that? Because of my arm?

[laughs] No.

Arm wrestling
is for the young and strong.

You're old like me.

Those kids would break you in half,
mechanical arm or not.

Is it too late to sign up?

Mm, I'm sure we could work something out.


[crowd cheering]

Nice job, Glurry.

Very respectable scores.
Not bad at all.

Now, for our next contestant
in the yalmor calling competition,

please welcome "Corin"!

[male coughing]

Right, then.
Just do what Pop-Pop taught you to do.





Look, guys, I just wanna know
if you've seen anything suspicious.

Well, there is one weirdo
who's going around and bothering people

about if they've seen anything suspicious.

Okay, that's a start.
Did you get a good look at...?

-It's me, isn't it?
-[kids laughing]

Hey-o! What ya doing, Keith?

Making new friends?

It's good to see you
finally letting your guard down.

-I wasn't making friends.
-[ride operator] Next!

Come on! You're holding the line up!
Let's go!

The line? Line for what?

-Yeah, get out of here!
-What's taking so long? Move!

-[both grunt]
-Oh. Uh, no, no, you don't understand.

I don't like rides.

Then why were you in line?

-We didn't know it was a line.
-Likely story.

Keep your hands and feet
in the mouth at all times.

You use 'em, you lose 'em.
Have a blissfully burrowful time.

[Hunk whimpering]

♪ We burrow every day
Underground is where we stay ♪

-♪ Waiting for the time to say ♪

-♪ Clear Day, Clear Day ♪
-This is awesome!

♪ Clear Day, Clear Day, Clear Day ♪

♪ What do we say?
Clear Day, Clear Day, Clear Day ♪

-[ride stops]

[ride operator over PA]
Sorry for the inconvenience.

We'll get this thing
up and running in a tick.

In the meantime,
stay in your burrow buggy.

And remember,
have a blissfully burrowful time.

♪ What do we say?

-♪ What do we say? Clear Day ♪
-[Keith] I gotta get out of here.

Oh! [giggling]

Voltron doesn't have a Purple Lion.

Wanna play?

All you gotta do is throw
one of these rings

onto one of them sticks.

Win one for your special someone?

You got any Blue Lions?

I used to be the Blue Lion's Paladin
and now my girlfriend is, so it's--

it's kind of our thing.

Oh, is that right?
Let me see.

I happen to have a one-of-a-kind,
collector's edition

blue mechanical flying feline.

Perfect! How much?

They only gave us
ten of these token thingies.

Oh, wonderful!

Ten tokens is exactly how much it costs
to play the game!

Did these rings shrink?

Oh, no, friend.

They just look smaller in your
strong, masculine hands. [chuckles]

Hmm. [grunting]

Oh! So close.
Care to try again?

Oh, this game is rigged!

And I don't have any more tokens.

Well, perhaps we can make a deal.

What's the best prize you have?

Every prize is the best prize,
and everyone goes home a winner.

Okay, but say I was giving the prize
to a princess.

For a princess?

I'll take it!

Sure, but you're gonna need
about twice as many tickets as this.

But I don't have any more tokens.

Well, in that case, you could get
one of these shovels and use it

to dig your way out of the hole
you find yourself in.

I'll find a way to get more tickets.

-[carnival music playing]
-[guns blasting]

[bell ringing]


[crowd cheering]

-[competitors grunting]
-[horn blares]

[exhales] May the best man win.

Who are you calling a man?

[whistle blows]


-[horn blares]

[man] All right!

-[whistle blows]

-[horn blares]


-[horn blares]

[Pidge] Dad, I ran out of tokens!

Well, that's what happens
when you waste it all on--


-Okay. How much do you need?
-How much do you got?

You'll have to earn them.

I want a family picture.

I'll take the picture,
but I pick the costume.

I get to add one accessory
and you have to smile.

Half smile.

You've got yourself a deal.

Say "Clear Day"!

-[flash whining]
-[all] Clear Day!

[camera shutter clicks]

[Colleen] I want another picture.
Katie isn't smiling.

Sorry! Gotta go do Paladin stuff!

It's been here the entire time.

Everything you need...

the ability you've been seeking,
within your grasp.

Go ahead, Allura, free it.

I can't.

I won't.

It won't do any harm.

The entity will help you.

It will save all of us.

-Take it.

No. This is not real!

[Melenor] Only you can save us all.

Release the entity.

[Melenor and Honerva]
Come home to Altea.

Join us.

[alarm blaring]


Follow me!

♪ Underground is where we stay
Waiting for the time to say Clear Day... ♪


[ride operator]
Looks like everything is in order.

We apologize for the delay.

Again, have a blissfully burrowful time.

-[singing continues]
-[sighs] Finally.

-♪ Clear Day, Clear Day, Clear Day ♪

-♪ What do we say? Clear Day, Clear Day ♪
-That's it!

-[singing continues]
-I'm getting out of here. You coming?

Can we come back when the ride gets fixed?
I wanna see how it ends.

Aw, man!
All right, wait up!

-[carnival music playing]
-[blade rings]

Oh, where are we?

[emcee] Ladies and burrowmen,
this is it!

Only two remain
in the yalmor calling competition.

Who will be our champion?

[crowd cheering]

Is that Coran?



She's done a twist
on the Flogarian technique.

She's good, really good.

[crowd cheering]

Wow! A blagmore and two durgises.

That score is gonna be hard to beat.





-[crowd cheering]

Oh, just gorgeous.

Three blagmores!

The top prize for the best squoozle
of the day goes to...

Corn-man Hieronymus Wimbleton Smythe!


[Lance] And that's the last one.

Here you go.

Nice plushy!

-Nice trophy!
-Look what I got for Allura.

I bet she's really gonna dig it.

[Keith] Where's Shiro?

[crowd cheering]

[mic feedback rings]

Ladies and burrowmen, are you ready
to crown an arm wrestling champion?

[crowd cheering and applauding]

First up is our challenger,
former Paladin of Voltron

and the current captain of the IGF Atlas.

Hailing from some tiny planet
no one has ever heard of...

it's Shiro!

[crowd booing]

And our reigning champion,
who needs no introduction...

Let's hear it for the Warden!




-Friend of yours?
-Not exactly.

[arm clanking]

You and your little friends
took away my livelihood.

You held an innocent person prisoner
to help the Galra Empire.

I'd gladly do it again.

Look, I know I did some bad things.

The truth is
I thought you guys ruined my life,

but, really, you saved me.

After I stopped working for the Galra,
I was at a low point.

But then I found arm wrestling,

and it helped me realize
what's most important in my life.

Win or lose, thank you.

Now, let's put on a show!

[both grunting]


-[Coran] Rip his arm off! Rip his arm off!
-[Pidge] You got this!


[crowd cheering]

[all cheering]

You're all right, Shiro.

[panting] Allura!

Allura, are you okay?
