The Lider robeast attacks Lotor in his completed Haggarium-powered castle. Voltron must defeat them both!
The Force takes on the rogue spider Robeast "Lider" again but, it's more powerful then before when it merges with a fully powered Haggarium-infused King Lotor, making Hunk to rename it the "Lotor-Lider".
Daniel while co-piloting the Black Lion discovers he can see into Lotor's mind and plan Voltron's attacks ahead of time. But when Lotor also learns he can do the same thing, Daniel, Vince, and Larmina come together once again by linking their abilities with one another to destroy Lotor-Lider once and for all.
This action appears to cure Daniel of the Haggarium poisoning inside his body. Later, impressed by Daniel's skills and quick thinking, Keith lets him take over piloting the Black Lion while he becomes king and joins Queen Allura to help out their people on Arus. However Vince is not convinced everything is right with Daniel. Meanwhile, Maahox decides he isn't in Lotor's service anymore and banishes Lotor from his newly designed Castle Doom which transforms into a giant robeast.
