Pretty much. lol

Has anyone else here seen the SU comics Lauren Zuke did for Comic Con? This Lapidot one titled "Responsible Earth Citizens" was my personal favorite of the set.

That comic,

I need a spin off of just that in my life.

Speaking of we are getting to the final episode of the nuke today! Hard to believe it is over, isn't it? Well let's take this opportunity to:

Know Your Fusion

Steven and the Gems examine fusions.

Get the couches and set ready at 7!

I'd love a new fusion this episode too (anything involving Peridot & Lapis would be amazing!), but yeah it's probably just going to be Smoky. At the very least I hope she has perfected her 'look' this time around. I mean, what we saw of her in Earthlings was the equivalent of cotton-candy Garnet in The Answer.

Who's the best gem and why is it Peridot?

Sorry Pearl, you're still cool, you'll be #1 after the honey-moon phase is over, I think

For real though, how good is the cast in this god damn animated cartoon?

Pearl is still by far the best, just by virtue of having the most depth as a character.

I love absolutely everyone though.

I've only seen bits of the magazine that the Crewinverse had sold at Comic Con (such as the literal Fusion Cuisine comic that stars Steven), so I'm jealous for those that were able to pick it up.

Peridot held Lapis's arm in the episode Back To The Moon when Amy as *Jasper* asked if they wanted to go..seemed interesting to me that they might have formed a friendly relationship, (peridot was concerned for Lapis?) least one which Lapis doesn't seem to mind physical connection with her.

Edit: Found It.

I know that's supposed to be a slightly tilted down shot, but given my experience with storyboarding several animated productins, it's incredibly jarring to see how the characters proportions can change so dramatically from board artist-to-board artist.

Steven has a starting point (mostly the physical aspect) but he's gonna need more for the mental aspect.

My crazy theory is that its gonna be a song (supposedly like what the diamonds used to corrupt) and the song will be the final version of "Love like you" :P

I know we've seen gems with only one eye before, but is that the first gem we've seen with more than two eyes that wasn't a fusion?

Steven's going to mix his dream powers and his healing to try and fix corrupted gems mentally. Garnet said that corrupted gems have a tear in the mind, so it's more mental than physical. He won't be able to do it with Centipeetle since she's living peacefully with her crew now, so it will probably be Jasper first.

I think he'll succeed with Jasper, since her corruption is unique in that it was contracted from another gem monster and not the original corruption event. In the SDCC 2016 Steven Universe zine, Peridot had a fan guide for the seasons of Camp Pining Hearts, where she mentioned that a character (who is often considered Jasper's analgoue) ended up being a werewolf in Season 3. Since we're technically at the start of "Season 3" if we had followed the original episode count for the show, there's a theory that Jasper will be a pseudo-werewolf in some way. She's mostly uncorrupted, but can still turn into a monster form either by accident or by controlling it.

I just like the theory because the concept of Jasper becoming part-monster during fights sounds cool.

I was wondering how they could make Jasper better. I mean, she hasn't done enough to merit the title of "Best Gem," but she's still Top 5.

Side-note: Holy shit I just saw everything and the only thing ruined for me going in was Smokey this is fantastic and also Peridot was great when she was just a cold IT girl but now she's also Zim and Wil E. Coyote how can one character be this perfect.

... *Ahem* I hope we see Jasper and the Rubies again soon. I want to see things settled with Bismuth soon, but I doubt she'll ever be a regular.

Great episode. I laughed at "Do we still have to pay her royaltys even though she doesn't appear in the episode?" Wasn't expecting them to go there.

Going from a Steven Nuke to week to week for the first time is gonna be tough now that it's over :(
