Zarkon enlists the aide of Stride, a legendary Tiger fighter, in his battle against Voltron. Stride wants no part of Zarkon's personal grudges, so Zarkon falsely claims that Planet Arus has challenged Stride's honor. As Stride leaves to fight Voltron, Zarkon welcomes a new ally, Queen Merla. After hearing of Zarkon's plan, Merla decides to head to the battle sight, because she doesn't want Zarkon getting all the credit. Stride meets Keith in a one-on-one fight. Keith earns Stride's respect by fighting valiantly, which leads to Merla attacking both of them.
Did You Know?
When Keith takes off stock footage from "The Missing Key" is used so the Black Lion comes out of the statue that disappeared in the same story rather than just taking off. See more
We met before. Outside.
No, you're mistaken. The man I met outside was brutish and stupid. He couldn't have been the son of a great king like Zarkon.
