THE RIGHT ARM OF VOLTRON

THE PLOT:

After yet another failed attack on Arus, Yorick is given yet another chance for Haggard has a plan. She goes to Arus with a Robeast and uses her blue cat to lure one of them away. Lance takes the bait but Sven isn't far behind and it's poor Sven that tastes Haggard's revenge, crippled and hurt leaves Voltron minus one leg and without all five robots, they can't form Voltron.

THE OPINION:

Okay, several things wrong with this American episode. One, and most obvious, Sven was the pilot of Blue Lion which is the right leg of Voltron not the right arm. Second, in the Japanese version Sven or whatever his Japanese name was died horrible at Haggard's hands and the hands of her Manbeast, not just really hurt. So, there is a major dumb down factor in this episode.
