Soon, after Pidge leaves, Lance has the idea to "bond as a team." Hunk doesn't think it's a good idea, but he goes along with Lance anyway. After meeting up with Pidge, a spaceship is seen falling through the sky, Pidge and Lance hurriedly run off to see the ship, while Hunk mentions how this is the worst team-building exercise ever. They soon discover it's Shiro who was in the ship.
After rescuing Shiro and meeting Keith, everyone is at Keith's shack. By morning, everyone begins the search for the Blue Lion. Once finding it and off into outer space, they come to the planet Aries, meeting Allura and Coran. Allura tells them of Voltron and where to find the reminding Lions. Hunk and Lance go together to retrieve the Yellow Lion. From above, Lance is fighting off Galra. The Galra shoot missals at the opening Hunk entered. Lance yells out Hunk's name is visibly distressed at believing he just lost his best friend. Lance pleads for Hunk and is soon shot down. Galra again fire missals and the now weakened Blue Lion, and Lance braces for the impact, moments later the Yellow Lion breaks through the ground, shielding the Blue Lion. Hunk tells him, "You okay, Lance?" With them both okay, Allura contacts them, saying how she can't hold the wormhole open much longer, with that, Hunk and Lance leave the battle ground.
Later, an attack on planet Arus is immediate, the newly formed Team Voltron make a plan to retrieve the Red Lion. As Lance and Hunk have two of the three working Lions, they work together to distract Commander Sendak and other Galra.

As the team is leaving the battle, Haggar blasts dark magic into their wormhole, casing the team to get separated. Lance and Hunk end up on a water planet.
