The hit animation series on Netflix continues, as this reboot comes to it's fifth season.
Like season 4 and the following 6, it's a rather short one coming in at 6 episodes, and that is the reason 2018 saw no less then 3 seasons being released for example by using this formula of short arcs per season.
Prince Lotor is still a capture of our heroes, and in order to prove he really wants peace keeps providing the paladin's with information on their missions.
He leads them to battle against the ressurected Zarkon, and in a mission where Pidge's father is finally rescued, he faces him in mortal battle. With the help of the Lion's he finally gains the upperhand and destroys his father at last, clearing the way for peace.
To that end, he needs to speak to his inner Altean and together with the princess to discover a mythical planet, birthplace of Altean alchemy. Now as the ruling emperor of the Galra empire, he sees this the perfect way to make a renewed alliance to secure the galaxy...
What I Liked About it
* once again well animated, this season ties up some seemingly "fatherly knots" with both the Lotor and the Pidge arcs on that part coming to a close.
What I didn't like about it
* those short seasons do make the waiting for the next ones, well, short, it also means you get only a single evening enjoyment out of them...
