Allura: We need to get to the others. (Allura heads for the other lions) <Meanwhile...> Vince: Is that...? (The riders leave the unconcious cadet at Larmina's feet) Larmina: We need smelling salts. (A rider heads back to the leader) Rider: He will be fine. <tbc>
Medullon: Right now, the only safe place would be back on Arus. Or Cerebra.
(Medullon takes a small holographic projector out of his pocket, and activates it. It projects an image of a beautiful planet.)
Medullon: Behold. Cerebra, in all it's glory. My father's palace is here.
(Medullon points to an island, in the middle of a great ocean.)
Medullon: It was built there thousands of years ago, when Cerebra was a more barbaric world. Being built on an island kept it safe from all enemies. My ancestor, Cerebra, for whom the planet was named, was a great king. He united all the people, and began improving the planet into the paradise it is today.
(Nearby.. Metamor is ready to finish off Red Lion.)
"Lion Tamer": By the time I am finished, only the Blue Lion will remain. King Lotor would not want his prize damaged.

(Hunk and Pidge join Lance as Allura arrives) (Allura fires a freeze blast at the tamer) Lance: Power dropping. Guess Red Voltron is out of the question. Keith: If we formed that, he could become it. Hunk: Well, we need something. <tbc>

Lance: Thanks. Keith: Well, I say it is time. Activate Interlocks. Dynotherms connected. Infracells up. Megathrusters are go. Lance, ALlura, Pidge and Hunk: Let's go, Voltron Force! (Voltron is formed) Keith: Try this. Form Blazing Sword! <tbc>
(On Arus, several days later, Coran meets with the Voltron Force.)
Coran: Now that we know Lotor has a shape shifter among his forces, we need to double the defenses. Allura: Even with the Castle defenses, this foe could take over even one of us.
Mento: Even on his own, Metamor is dangerous. Now that he is allied with Lotor, he is even more so. Allura: I know. Lance: Man, Lotor is just getting worse now. Daniel: Let's not forget we still have Wade to worry about.. Keith: We know that, Daniel Pidge: And he wants to scrap the lions. Mento: That is why my father withdrew Cerebra from the Alliance. He is becoming Megalomaniacal. Almost as dangerous as Lotor.
Vince: I still do not understand how I made the Red lion the head. Mento: A group of scientists from Cerebra will arrive here in a matter of days. They are among the most brilliant in the galaxy. If they cannot figure that out, no one can. Daniel: That creepy guy with Lotor seemed to have known something, didn't he, Vince? Vince: From what Maahox told me, I was a descendant of an old race. The same race that created the lions and Voltron. I do not know if or when I will do that again. Allura: I am certain you have these powers for a reason. Medullon: Perhaps it would work with the other lions as well. Mento: A good hypothesis, my brother. Keith: We will have to wait and see. Lance: I wonder what weapons we would have if the Blue lion was the head. Mento: Most likely, it would be similar to Allura's VoltCom weapons, as Red Lion produced guns like yours. Hunk: I wonder if my lion will be next or Pidge's. Who knows. Allura: My bow or my whip... interesting. Hunk: Then my lion would have a hammer... I see nothing wrong with that.
(Meanwhile, at Sky Marshall Wade's headquarters...)
Wade: Where is that Lieutenant?
(A soldier a little older than Daniel arrives. He walks in.)
Soldier: Sir, reporting for duty. Wade: Arus has violated my orders for far too long. And now, I hear that the vehicles are coming back. I will take care of that commander personally. I want you to infiltrate the Castle of Lions and find out where the lions are. Get one if you can. If you cannot, destroy one. Soldier: That might be a little hard, sir.. I mean, I'm kind of related to one of the Voltron pilots.. Wade: I don't care about your relations. I care about getting the job done. Put your relations aside for one day. Soldier: (sighs) Yes, sir... Wade: I will give you a ship. Land away from the Castle and walk to it. Get inside that castle by any means. Soldier: Yes, sir.
(The soldier salutes.)
Wade: Good luck, son.
Wade: Get me the fighters that found that ship near the Drule border.
(The soldier starts to leave. Wade isn't watching. He's busy with other matters. The soldier leaves the room, heading to get ready.)
Soldier: (thinking) Now to figure out how I'm going to get in the castle without my cousin seeing me.. I can't just walk in and say "Hey, Lance, it's your cousin Pike. Long time no see."
(Back on Arus, Medullon enters Mento's quarters.)
Mento: You seem troubled, my brother. Medullon: I need advice. Every time I am near Larmina, I feel... distracted. Mento: I know how you feel. I get the same way around Allura. You, my brother, are falling in love with her. Medullon: I thought it was just because of her skills as a fighter. Mento: You will learn, my brother, that skills are one thing. Beauty is something entirely different.
Larmina: Man, that was the longest cleaning I have ever been a part of. I am glad we have started to get this place together. Daniel: Still needs more work.
(Vince is pacing.)
Daniel: Penny for your thoughts. Vince: Why do I now know what I do when I changed the Red lion to form the head. All that guy on Drule said was that I was related to the original creators. Larmina: We'll figure it out.
(Medullon arrive. He says nothing, and sits down.)
Daniel: We still need more seats. Vince: Hello there, Medullon. Medullon: Hello. I should bring my own holo-chair from now on. Cerebran made chairs are the finest in the galaxy. Daniel: Whatever makes this place more homey.
(In the atmosphere of Arus, a small shuttle arrives. Pike is at the controls, as he flies in. Pidge sees the shuttle. He is uncertain of what to do. The small shuttle flies low to the ground, and lands in the mountain area, a few hundred yards away from the castle. Pidge sounds a yellow alert.)
Keith: Okay, what is going on? Pidge: Just a small shuttle. Just testing the alert systems.
(Pidge turns the alert off. Pike exits the small shuttle, and starts to head for the castle on foot. It'll be a hour before he reaches it. An older woman approaches the castle. Or at least, it appears to be an older woman. It's Metamor, disguised as the least likely person, Allura's old Nanny.)
Metamor (Thinking): I will not rest until I have Cerebra. I will keep trying to obtain the Princess for King Lotor until I succeed.
("Nanny" enters the castle. Pike is almost at the castle. He can see the entrance. Inside the castle, "Nanny" sets off a motion sensor. Above, Pidge spots the motion.)
Pidge: Can it be...?
Pidge: Princess, your nanny has come here for some reason. Allura: Odd. I haven't heard from her since we defeated Lotor the first time. 6:59 pm Mento: I recall her from my youth. She seemed more like the drill instructors of the Cerebran military than my nanny.
(Pike arrives at the entrance, as the alarms start going off because of the motion sensor "Nanny" triggered.)
Pike: (thinking) That wasn't me, was it?
("Nanny" finds her way to the command center.)
(Allura hugs her nanny)
"Nanny": I heard you had some trouble with Larmina, running off to Planet Doom. I knew I was needed here again.
(Pike fully enters the castle, and tries to stay out of sight as much as he can.)
Allura: I am trying my best, but I could use your assistance. "Nanny": Of course, Allura. Even if she needs a refresher course in how to behave. Allura: Well, I was the same when the other members of the force arrived.
(Pike arrives outside the command center, but he stays as concealed as he can, trying to find the lions.)
"Nanny": I will do what I can to help her behave like a lady, not like riff-raff. Allura: Well, she isn't totally riff-raff, but whatever you do will be an improvement. "Nanny": Of course. Lance (to Keith): Seems odd, don't you think?
(Pike peeks his head in, hoping no one sees him, as he looks for any signs of where the lions could be.)
Keith: Maybe. Hunk: Having her back brings back memories. Bad ones. Pike: (thinking) This is getting nowhere.. I have no idea where the lions are..
("Nanny" leaves, but not before secretly slipping a tracking device onto Allura.)
Lance: Short visit. Pidge: I thought for sure she would stay.
(Pike quickly moves to hide, so "Nanny" doesn't see him. Lance begins to look around the Command Area.)
Mento: Did you misplace something, Lance? Lance: No. But with all these people entering, I would think that Wade would send a spy. Mento: When the scientists arrive, we can have them install brainwave detectors. Everyone will have to be scanned to establish a pattern match. Allura: Perhaps we should consider it.
(Lance continues his search, looking around. He is in the area of Pike, but has yet to see him.)
Pike: (thinking) Looks like I might have to use my relation with Lance..
(Pike casually starts to walk inside the command center.)
Pike: Hey Lance, it's me, you're cousin, Pike. Long time no see..? Lance: Pike? What are you doing here? Pike: It's.. a long story.. Lance: Tell me. Pike: Well, not exactly a long story.. I was on my way home, and thought I'd stop by. I heard you left the Galaxy Alliance. Lance: That was because of what Wade did with the Lions. Keith: Did he send you? Pike: He did something to them? From what I heard, you guys just decided to go AWOL on your own. Lance: That is HIS story, not ours. Pike: Maybe it's just a misunderstanding. Lance: And you are still in the Alliance. I should have you imprisoned here until we decide what we can do. Hunk: Did you not hear what Wade did? He took over. Pike: Yes, I'm still with the Alliance. I'm a Lieutenant now. But I didn't come here to fight. Lance: Why are you here? Pike: Well, originally, it's because Wade ordered me to. But I told him that it would be hard for me to do it, since I had a cousin here. But he didn't care about that. Lance: He only cares about getting the lions. Pike: That was my mission. Either to get one of the lions, or destroy one. Mento: His lust for power will be his undoing. Lance: If you got my lion, I swear...
(Pidge checks. The lions are still safe.)
Pike: Lance.. I can't believe you'd think I'd do something like that to family. Lance: With you still in the Alliance, I do not know what to believe.
(Larmina and Vince are heading back, Daniel behind them. Medullon follows behind Vince.)
Pike: If it makes you feel any better, I can leave. Maybe announce that I'm MIA. Lance: No. We may need a spy in the Alliance now. Pike: You know I don't work that well under pressure. That's why I decided to come clean with you, instead of trying to get one of the lions. Lance: And you did. I may have an idea. Pike: I just know if I go in there as a spy now, I'm going to be having Wade suspecting me in the back of my mind. Lance: Then leave. We can train you like we train the others.
(Speaking of them, they arrive.)
Daniel: Another recruit? Pike: I'll leave, but I shouldn't train with them. I don't deserve being a pilot of Voltron. Lance: Because you wanted to destroy it? You did what you had to do. And I am doing what I want to do. Vince: He's making him join? Lance: And Vince gets the point. I am making you join the cadets. Pidge: I can have a Com ready by tomorrow. Medullon: He seems rather unruly. Larmina: You will have to get used to him, like the others. Pike: You know you can't really make me do it. But I guess I'll do it for now. Because I know you, Lance. You won't shut up until I do. Lance: I guess you do know me. Keith: Pidge, get that VoltCom ready ASAP. Lance: That reminds me, we still do not know what Medullon's weapon is. Mento: Yes, my brother. Have you not used your VoltCom yet? Medullon: By the time I am ready to fight, Larmina has usually already eliminated most of them. Larmina: Then I will save you one next time.
(Medullon smiles at Larmina.)
Keith: We can have them spar once Pike gets a Com.
(Pike turns to the other cadets.)
Pike: I see you got some worthy candidates already. Vince: I see you will be a good member of the team.
(Pike looks at Daniel.)
Pike: For some reason, I can see a bit of you in him, cousin. Must've been why you chose him. Lance: Nah, he's just fast. Trust me.
(An explosion shakes the castle.)
Lance: What is going on? Pike: Where did that explosion come from? Coran: There's been an explosion, along the base of the north tower of the castle.
(Pidge checks outside, near the base of the north tower)
Hunk: If this is a Lotor plan...
(The videos would show reveal nothing. "Nanny" comes in, and nearly collapses.)
Allura: What happened? Pidge: Not sure. No signs from the videos. Pike: (thinking) Something seems off about her.. (out loud) Wait. Stay away from her. Nanny: I saw someone, outside my window. It looked like... like him.
("Nanny" points at Pike. Allura stands away from nanny)
Pike: Well, that's impossible. I've been here the whole time. Lance: It can't be him. It has to be that shape shifter. Keith: He wanted us to think that it was Pike, to draw suspicion away from him. Pike: Uh, cousin, I'm trying to tell you that something seems wrong. Lance: I trust you.
(Lance aims his VoltCom at "Nanny")
Allura: If you are wrong, I swear... Pike: I remember you sending pictures of you guys when you fought Lotor 7 years ago. She looks like the woman in the picture that always stood beside Hunk. But she doesn't look like she's aged at all. Lance: He's right.
(Lance fires a warning shot from his Com. Daniel walks around to the other side of Lance, after the shot is fired. "Nanny" dodges the blast... by changing into a large bird.)
Lance: It is that shape changer! Allura: We should have known. Keith: He must have a ship on the planet.
(Mento rushes to protect Allura.)
Pike: I didn't detect any when I came in on my shuttle. Allura: I doubt he will try anything.
(Metamor dives at Larmina, picking her up in his talons.)
(Medullon aims his VoltCom at the bird. It fires an energy star at him.)
Pike: Put her down!
(Pike jumps into the air, and does a flying kick at Metamor, a move he learned while in Galaxy Alliance. Metamor drops Lamina. Medullon dives to catch her.)
(Pike lands on the ground, rolling back to his feet.)
Medullon: I couldn’t risk seeing you hurt. Bird: The Princess comes with me, or another explosion will happen. Pike: Oh, another explosion will happen, alright. Yours, when we send you packing. Bird: Rude little boy. There is a more powerful explosive, planted in the castle's generators. I detonate that, and nothing can stop King Lotor. Pike: You're bluffing. Why would you risk killing yourself? Bird: Who says I'll detonate it while I'm still in the castle? Pike: And who says we’ll let you leave for you to detonate it? Bird: Can you block a matter transporter? Pike: I have no idea. Pidge: I don't think so. Mento: Only a powerful force shield can block one of those. Bird: I have already planted a tracking device on the Princess. She and I will be in orbit when the explosive detonates. Pike: What a coward. Lance: I'll say. Bird: No, not a coward. Just a good strategist. Always have something to bargain with. Pike: Sounds like a coward to me.
(Metamor transforms back into what he uses as his true form.)
Metamor: Now, we can do this the easy way, and you keep your castle in tact. Or, I just take her and destroy you all.
(Mento tries to hide his anger.)
Keith: We won't allow you to take her away.
(Medullon aims his VoltCom at Metamor. He expects it to shoot stars, like it did previously. Instead, he gets a sword, similar to Keith's.)
Pike: Looks like I touched a nerve when I called you a coward. But if the shoe fits..
(Keith, seeing Medullon, activates his Voltcom, and his sword. Lance readies to back Keith up.)
Medullon: I was expecting stars. Apparently my VoltCom still has mysteries to solve. Pidge: I'll take a look at it later. Mento: Let her go. Take me instead. Metamor: King Lotor doesn’t want you. I give him the Princess, I get Cerebra. Larmina: You snake. Mento: You take me, my father would give you Cerebra. You wouldn’t have to deal with Lotor. Pike: How about you let her go, and we'll give you your life? Mento: Pidge, Hunk, get to the generators. Try and stop his explosive. The rest of us will save Allura.
(Pidge and Hunk leave for the generators.)
Daniel: If she falls, I can rush in to save her. Mento: It's not falling we have to worry about. It's teleportation. Daniel: I know. Metamor: This is growing boring. And Lotor is waiting for his bride. Lance: Any ideas, Keith? Pike: I'm really getting sick of this guy's attitude.
(Metamor pulls out a blaster, and aims at Pike.)
Lance: Pike, look out! Metamor: You should respect your elders, boy. Pike: Don't worry about me, cousin. I wasn't in the Galaxy Alliance and promoted to Lieutenant for my looks.
Pike: As for you, being an "elder"? Don't make me laugh. Respect is something people earn. It's not something you're demanded.
(Metamor throws the blaster at Pike, then activates his matter transporter. He and Allura start to vanish. Mento leaps to grab Allura, and he vanishes with them.)
Keith: She's gone. Gone to Planet Drule. Larmina: I still don't have the experience to pilot the Blue Lion. Vince: I think I can help you, if they decide that we need them.
(Pike catches the blaster as it flies at him.)
Pike: I knew he was a coward. Couldn't even fire on me. Lance: I am glad he was a coward. Medullon: I must rescue my brother. (thinking) And perhaps impress Larmina. Keith: We know that. His and the Princess' safety are important. Lance: We're still one pilot short. Pike: Even if he fired on me, he wouldn't have hit me. Sky Marshal Wade said that I was the best fighter he's seen, aside from you, cousin.
(Up on Metamor's ship...)
Allura: Lotor again... Metamor: You were a fool, Your Highness, now I can get Cerebra without surrendering her. I will keep her for myself.
(Allura sighs slightly.)
Mento: Wrong, traitor. You will get nothing.
(Mento throws a punch at Metamor. As they grapple, Metamor transforms into Mento, to confuse Allura.)
Allura: Mento? Both: Yes. Allura: Great. Mento 1: There's one way to reveal the true Metamor. On his chest is the brand of treason. Even his changes cannot hide it. Allura: But where is it? (thinking) and is that the real Mento? Mento 1: On his chest. Watch.
(Allura watches. Mento 1 rips open the shirt worn by the other. A red mark is revealed, like a three edged boomerang. Allura activates her Voltcom and her whip, tying the other Mento up.)
Allura (to real Mento): Thank goodness you were the real one. I would have taken you both out. Mento: I am glad you did not. Mento 2: I can still detonate the explosive. It's voice activated. Allura: We need some tape or something. We have to stop him.
(The second Mento changes into a snake, slithering out of the whip, then wrapping around Allura.)
Allura: Help! Snake: Ssssssurrender to me and your friendssssss will live. Allura: Never.
(Mento activates his own VoltCom, producing a pair of daggers.)
Mento: Release her, and fight me. Snake: I do not have the combat training you do, "My Prince". But I do have one advantage. Computer, take usssss to Planet Doom. Allura: This is bad.
(Metamor's ship leaves orbit, heading for Planet Doom. Mento lunges at the snake, forcing it off of Allura with his daggers.)
Allura: Thanks, but can you turn this ship around? Mento: I'll have to look at his computer. Snake: You wont have that chance. Allura: How so?
(The snake strikes at Mento, keeping him away from the computer.)
Mento: If I could get to the computer, I can try to reprogram it and override it's course. It would take us back to Arus.
(Allura draws her bow.)
Mento: Be careful. If you miss and hit the computer, we could end up someplace worse than Planet Doom. Allura: As long as I can see that mark, I can't miss. Snake: Oh really?
(The snake transforms into a mosquito. Allura frowns, and deactivates her bow.)
Mosquito: I am not just any mosquito. I am one from the planet Somnus. One bite and you will sleep for hours. More than enough time to deliver her to Lotor, or make her my bride. Mento (whispered): Try and distract him. Give me time to get to the computer.
(Allura nods. The mosquito flies toward Allura, landing on her cheek.)
Allura: I won't submit to Lotor. You'll have to put me to sleep as well. Mosquito: Azzzzzz you wish.
(The mosquito bites Allura. Allura begins to fall asleep.)
Mosquito: Your turn, my Prinzzzz.
(Mento swats the mosquito, knocking it into a bulkhead. Back on Arus...)
Medullon; I believe the four of us can pilot any lion, if we act as a team. It's the new arrival that would hinder our efforts. Lance: I can vouch for him. Medullon: How do we know he wasn’t sent by Wade to destroy us from within? He is a Lieutenant after all. Pike: I bet I could pilot one of the lions better than any of you. That was originally why I was chosen to come here in the first place by Sky Marshal Wade. Lance: Proof enough? Medullon: Ah-ha. He had admits it. Wade sent him here to steal a lion. Keith: Calm down. Pike: Yes, he did. But I'm not here to do that anymore. I'm not going to make an enemy of family. Medullon: Then prove it. Help me rescue my brother and the princess.
(Elsewhere in the castle...)
Pidge: We've entered the power core of the castle. I am scanning for any explosives. Hunk (VO): Should not be hard to find.
Pike: Sounds like you're trying to order me around. Lance: Keith, order him if you must. Medullon: I am simply testing your loyalty, not giving you orders. Pike: I don't need to show my loyalty. But I'll do it anyway, because I don't ignore when someone's in trouble right in front of me.
Mento (v/o): Castle Control, this is Mento. I've taken control of Metamor's ship, but I cant direct it's landing. We're likely going to arrive on the far side of Arus. Keith: We'll meet you there. Pike: Seems a bit easy that he'd be coming back like this. Better hope it's not another trap. Mento (v/o): We'll need serum for a Somnian mosquito. Allura's asleep, thanks to the bite of one. Medullon: If that was not my brother, they would not be coming back here. Pidge: I can synthesize some later. Pike: With a guy that can be anyone he wants, I don't think it would matter. He could be anyone he wanted, and come back here without us knowing until it's too late. Medullon: I can track the ship's path, so we know exactly where it will land. Then we can determine if it's my brother, or the traitor. Lance: Best to take at least one lion, just in case.
(Medullon sits down at a computer.)
Medullon: Judging by their current flight path, they'll likely be landing in the desert. Keith: Let's get there as soon as we can. Lance and I will get our lions.
(Soon, Metamor's ship lands, hard.)
Mento: Now, to get Allura out of here.
(Mento opens the hatch, then picks up the sleeping Princess, carrying her outside. Keith and Lance arrive, in the Black and Red Lions.)
Lance: No sign of the shape shifter Keith: Get in. We'll take you back to the Castle.
(Metamor flies out of the ship, transforming into a giant Lotor.)
Keith: We should have gotten the other lions. "Lotor": Give me the Princess, or I tear one of these lions apart.
("Lotor" grabs the red lion.)
Lance: Um, I need some help. Pidge: We'll be there in a minute. Just need to get rid of a package that was delivered to us. "Lotor": Prepare to be sand blasted.
("Lotor" picks up a hand full of sand, blowing it at Black Lion. Black stands its ground. The Yellow Lion is launched. It will be at Keith's location in a minute. Pidge sets up the rocket defense system to blast the explosive device into orbit.)
Mento: We'll never defeat him without all five lions.
(Suddenly, the Yellow Lion shows up, and fires its tail weapon at "Lotor". )
"Lotor": Another kitten for me to break.
(The Yellow Lion jumps into the air, then spins, attacking "Lotor" with its tail like a melee weapon. "Lotor" is knocked down, falling toward Mento and Allura. The Yellow Lion lands on the ground, near the Black Lion.)
Voice: Good thing I got here in time.
(Inside the Yellow Lion, Pike is at the controls, not Hunk. Allura lands, still asleep. Mento is knocked down by the impact. Back at the Castle, Pidge shoots a rocket into space, and tracks it.)
Hunk: I'll get Green, if Pidge doesn't mind. Pidge: no problem. I'll have the device destroyed in a few seconds.
(Hunk launches the Green Lion.)
Pike: So, are we going to form Voltron to fight this guy? Keith: Without Allura, we can't form it. We need the Blue Lion. Hunk: Green is on its way.
(An explosion is heard.)
Pike: I thought that was the reason you're training cadets? Keith: I know we are. Vince: Come on, Larmina.
(Vince and Larmina launch the Blue Lion.)
Hunk: Okay, Blue is on the way. Give the cadets a minute. Medullon (to Daniel): I hope they can control it without us. Daniel: They should be able to.
(Hunk fires the tail boomerang at the fallen Lotor. "Lotor" dodges it, then transforms into Voltron.)
"Voltron": Now you're in for it. Keith: I think we may need a new formation. Pike: Great, a poor imitation.
(Vince and Larmina arrive.)
Vince: Yellow or Red? Keith: Let's try Red first. Okay, its time to show him what the real Voltron can do. Pike: What's to stop him from just changing into Red Voltron? Keith: We'll figure that out when it is time. Pike: (slightly sarcastic) Great strategy.. Keith: Activate Interlocks. Dynotherms connected. Infracells up. Megathrusters are go. Larmina, Vince and Hunk: Let's go Voltron Force!
(As the lions assemble, "Voltron" reaches for Allura.)
Mento: Allura! Keith: Forming Lance configuration. Form Feet and Legs. Form Arms and body. Lance: I'll form the head. Lance: Form Blazing Blasters.
(The guns appear.)
Pike: Nice weapons, cousin. Lance: I know.
(Lance fires on the fake. "Voltron" becomes a shorter robeast, dodging the blast. It picks up Allura.)
Lance: That is so dirty, Keith: Switch to original form.
(The lions switch.)
Keith: Form Blazing Sword.
(Keith will not attack as long as he sees Allura is captured.)
"Robeast": I suggest you back off. Unless you want me to drop her. Keith: We won't back away. Mento: I can catch her. Attack.
(Keith slashes the Robeast. The "robeast" drops Allura, changing back into Metamor. Mento catches her before she hits the ground.)
Mento (silently): You are safe, my love. Pidge: Explosive taken care of. I'll have the antidote ready when you get back, Lance: That prove his loyalty? Medullon: I suppose. Pike: Hey, I could've just took the Yellow Lion back to the Galaxy Alliance. But I didn't. Keith: Let's make sure that this guy is taken to the authorities. Lance: And I am glad you did not. Pike: As I said, I'm not making an enemy of family. Mento: We must be careful with him. He escaped my father's dungeon, on more than one occasion. Keith: We will. Pidge: I can, with a proper description of a typical dungeon cell on your planet, create a temporary cell for him. Pike: Considering he escape their dungeon so much, that might not be the best idea. Mento: We would need something that he cannot escape from, no matter what form he takes. Pidge: We can work on it.
(Hoping none of the others notice, Mento kisses Allura, before heading to Blue Lion.)
Pike: You could make a energy prison. All sides of the prison can be glass, except the door, which would be made of energy. Mento: Or just a series of force fields, except for the floor. Pike: As long as there's no gaps anywhere. Pidge: We can do that. Mento: I will summon an architect from Cerebra to consult.
(Coran arrives, with the antidote.)
Mento: As much as I don’t mind carrying her, my arms are getting tired. Coran: Thanks to this, she will wake up as soon as I inject her.
(Coran injects Allura with the antidote. She wakes up)
Allura: What happened? Mento: Metamor bit you, but we are safe on Arus now. Allura: Thank goodness. And Metamor? Mento: Out cold. We just need to restrain him.
(Pidge is discussing the prison with Hunk.)
Mento (thinking): Would she realize I kissed her earlier? Allura: I had the strangest dream... someone kissed me. Mento: Hopefully not Lotor or Metamor. Allura: No, I doubt that. Pike: I wouldn't call that a strange dream. Mento (whispered): It was me. Allura (whispered to Mento): Why? Because you love me?
(Mento nods. Allura suppresses a blush. Pike decides to walk over to the cadets, and "hang out" with them.)
Larmina: Welcome to the team. Vince: Welcome. Daniel: Great, someone who has more experience than me. Pike: Thanks, I guess.
(Medullon says nothing. He is working on more designs for Metamor's cell.)
Larmina (to Pike): We need to show you the Den.
(Pike looks at Medullon, before looking at Daniel.)
Pike: Well, I was in the Galaxy Alliance for awhile before Lance and the others decided to do what they did and defect. You just started there when you were dragged into being a cadet here. It's only natural. Daniel: I apologize. Pike: The Den? I guess that would be the little base for cadets? Medullon: Don’t mind me. I'm just making sure this cell is completely escape proof. After all, that traitor impersonated me recently. Larmina: It's more than a base. It's sort of a hang-out. Pike: Uh-huh. Vince: Let's show him.
(Medullon gets up from the computer and walks away from the others.)
Pike: I'm going to guess he's not very sociable. Daniel: He's just busy with something. Pike: Let's go see this "Den", then.
(Vince, Larmina and Daniel lead Pike to the Den.)
Pike: Looks like an interesting place. Daniel: Still needs some work.
(Medullon arrives a few minutes later, accompanied by two robots pushing crates.)
Vince: What's with the crates? Medullon: A few touches from home.
(The crates are unpacked, revealing a holo-chair, a table, some computers and a musical instrument.)
Daniel: This is all from your home? Wow. Pike: Looks like this is looking more like a base and hang-out from that stuff. Larmina: We'll have to get power down here for the computers. Medullon: They have their own power sources. Larmina: I didn't know. Vince: What does that chair do? Medullon: I sit in it. It's more comfortable than the ones we have now. Vince: I meant besides being a seat. Pike: No seats for us? Larmina: We can always make some. Medullon: It has speakers built into it, for my extendaphone. Vince: Ah, I see Daniel: What kind of instrument is that? Medullon: That is an extendaphone. I have been studying it since I was 3. Daniel: Does it sound like a clarinet? Or more of an oboe? Medullon: It sounds like an extendaphone. Unlike any instrument ever made on Earth. Larmina: I see. I was taught how to play flute, clarinet and oboe, as well as Arus instruments.
(Medullon sits in his chair, and starts playing the extendaphone. It sounds like a whole orchestra. The piece he is playing is one he wrote recently, to honor Larmina's beauty.)
Larmina: That sounds like an entire Arus orchestra. Daniel: I am impressed.
(Pike says nothing, crossing his arms.)
Medullon: I wrote that piece myself. I call it, Tribute to Beauty. Larmina (thinking) My beauty... in a piece. Daniel: Arus to Larmina, come in, Larmina. Larmina: Sorry, I was just thinking about what we need to do next here. Medullon: Musical talent runs in my family. My great grandfather wrote the Cerebran planetary anthem. Vince: I would love to hear the anthem one day.
(Medullon starts playing the anthem.)
Pike: Music, huh. My talent is in fighting. Larmina: That is so unlike our Anthem. Daniel: I'd love to spar with you one day. Medullon: Fighting isn’t everything. I can hold my own in a fight, yes, but my father raised my brother and myself to be well-rounded. Vince: I see. Pike: I said it was a talent. I didn't say it's my only talent.
(Medullon tries his VoltCom again. This time, it's a bo, like Larmina's.)
Larmina: How odd. Vince: Your Com seems to adapt to your changing styles. Medullon: Then why did it become a sword when I needed ranged weapons? Larmina: I don't know. Pike: Maybe because you don't really know what you want. Daniel: Perhaps. Medullon (thinking): I know one thing I want. Larmina's love. Vince: I just wish I had a Voltcom, but mine is still being fixed. Larmina: Pidge will figure it out. And you still have your other powers.
Medullon: My father would say that your powers are merely a puzzle waiting to be solved. Pike: I don't need a Voltcom. Or, at least, I don't think I'll use it much if I had one. Vince: I know. I have been practicing. I was the reason the Red and Yellow Lions could become the head. Daniel: We'll let Lance and the others decide on that. Medullon: Perhaps you need to ride with Pidge and the Princess for the other lions to become the head? Vince: Maybe. But who knows when that will happen. Daniel: That would most likely make Black a leg for at least the Blue form. Medullon: I wonder what weapons they would produce. Daniel: A bow or a whip for Blue, I think. Medullon: That would be a logical assumption. Vince: Haven't seen Pidge use his Voltcom yet.
(Medullon's robots pour him a glass of juice.)
Larmina: You think you can have your robots work for us as well? Like they are for you, of course. Medullon: Perhaps.
(Pike decides to leave the Den as they talk. He heads to the command center to see Lance. As Pike leaves, one of the robots pours some juice for Larmina. Larmina takes a sip. Upstairs...)
Lance: May I help you, Pike? Pike: Not really. Just wondering what you want me to do around here. You already know that I can pilot a lion just fine, so there's no point in training me with those cadets. Lance: I plan on having you teach them a few things. We can discuss whether or not you need a Voltcom later. Pike: Teach them? Teach them what? Lance: That's for you to decide. I may allow you to teach one day, with supervision. You decide what to teach the other cadets. That supervision might not be me. Pike: Well, I can already think of teaching one cadet something. Lance: You need to teach them all. Just remember that. Pike: I can think of some lessons, but it wouldn't benefit all of them at once. Lance: I guess we can compromise. As long as two of them benefit, in some way, the first time, I will allow you to teach to one person the next time. Pike: I guess that's fair. Lance: Good. I'll have to talk to Allura about when you will start. Pike: Alright.
(At that moment, Mento is with Allura.)
Mento: If Metamor had delivered you to Lotor, I never would have forgiven myself. Allura: We are just lucky he did not. Mento: But if he had kept you for himself, well, I might have been tempted to terminate him. Allura: Is that wrong on your planet? Mento: Not if there are other ways to deal with a situation. We believe in rehabilitation before execution, unless the subject proves difficult to rehabilitate.
Mento: Metamor escaped every attempt to rehabilitate him. My father may order him executed. Allura: If he does, I will make sure that the order is allowed here. Mento: It would probably be my duty to carry it out. Allura: I understand. Mento: I knew you would. Allura: I hope he does not try and capture me again. Mento: I would put nothing past him, should he escape. Allura: Then I will make sure that I am guarded, unless I am in my Lion. Mento: And I will accompany you then. Allura: Thank you. Mento: I would do anything to keep you safe, my love.
(Allura blushes slightly.)
Mento: I hold you to your promise, than when Lotor is defeated, we will marry. Allura: I keep all of my promises. Mento: As do I.
