I HAVE A NEW LEAD ON THIS SHIRO THEORY!
Someone said (I believe on Tumbrl) that Shiro became the Black Lion. So!
Shiro just randomly disappeared right? Seems weird.
Black would NOT transport Shiro to the Galra. That’s just obvious.
So... Where is he?
In season 3, Keith says two things related to Shiro that have no real explanation.
1. “I don’t want to be the leader! That’s just what Shiro wanted!” Which actually makes sense. Because Shiro did say that he saw Keith’s potential.
2. “Shiro is gone! He was the black lion!” Explanation...? Not really anything.
Shiro was the Black Paladin not the Black Lion.
But I guess if you think about it, with their mental link, you could assume that they are the “Lion”. Shiro didn’t respond to them after their fight with Zarkon because by then he was gone.
But going back to the mental bond/link!
Remember the astral plain?
Yep we’re back there.
Shiro most likely didn’t just become one with the lion. So WHERE IS HE?!?
There is a whole mind scape thing that exists in the lion. Thats how they have the link with their paladin.
Black sent Shiro there once in Space Mall. She can do it again.
Maybe Shiro is there.
Shiro IS the black lion now.
Mentally. He controls the links between paladins.
WHICH EXPLAINS WHY HE WAS ABLE TO TAKE OVER KURON IN THE ASTRAL PLAIN IN SEASON 5!
Shiro wanted Keith to pilot Black. Which is why she accepted him as her new paladin. But if Shiro is now part of the “brain” of Black, then this explains why only Keith could be the leader.
Somehow Shiro talked to Lance in the astral plain. Everyone who was HUMAN (or Altean) was clear. But Shiro was shaded and sort of see through.
He wasn’t fully himself in Space Mall either.
Maybe. Shiro became part of the mind and mental state of the Black Lion.
