Man what a fucking amazing 20 minute duo.

So Garnet is a lesbian couple. I guess they can get away with the implication since the kiss was only in the cheek or w/e. But seeing Garnet so lively and saying "We already loved you" was great. The battle and song was also great. Lapis proves to me why I like her so much with that self sacrifice and the fight between Steven and Greg was very touching. Damn I guess that next season will have to be Steven somehow figuring out what his mom couldn't and finding a way to restore the corrupted gems or these guys don't stand a chance. Assuming there aren't more friendly gems around earth outside of Lapis. I hope she eventually finds a way to unfuse herself

So is tomorrow's episode plot relevant or was this the season finale?

Reading through random posts in here and it seems like Steven Universe is a much better show then I gave it credit for? Watched a couple of the early episodes and I only liked the one with that green monster thing that Steven became friends with.

I was looking for another toon to watch, so I'll give it another shot, I want in on this hype train.

it starts out ok but trust me it gets MUCH MUCH better. Once Connie becomes a regular side character and Greg turned into more of a dad instead of a hippie it turns around imho

Starts off slow, especially the first few episodes. It takes its time to world-build before really hitting home with its character interactions and down-to-earth drama. Not to mention the action and interesting backstory.

Think of the early eps as stuff going into a slow cooker, it takes time for everything to come together and the results speak for themselves.

Will have to watch these eventually (give them maybe a few months for them to drop in my neck of the woods :/).

This show really grew on me as it went on (The gems are great and Connie/Steven are damn adorable.) and is apparently doing alright enough to get more eps from CN so i'm glad for that


Also sounds like a certain poster wont be happy LOL.

Full Disclosure wasn't on the list of Season 1 episodes...unless Story for Steven got pushed or never existed. 0.0

Either way Season 2's opener is a doozy.

Lyrics to the amazing song.
This is Garnet, back together
And Iím never goiní down at the hands of the likes of you because Iím so much better
And every part of me is sayiní go get Ďer
The two of us ainít gonna follow your rules
Come at me without any of your fancy tools
Letís go just me aní you
Letís go just one on two
Go ahead and try and hit me if youíre able
Canít you see that my relationship is stable?
I can see you hate the way we intermingle
But I think youíre just mad Ďcause youíre single
Weíre never gonna stop what we made together
We are gonna stay like this forever
If you break us apart weíll just come newer
And weíll always be twice the gem that you are
I am made o-o-o-o-of l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve

This is who we are
This is who I am
And if you think you can stop me, then you need to think again
ĎCause I am a feeling and I will never end
And I wonít let you hurt my planet
And I wonít let you hurt my friends
Go ahead and try and hit me if youíre able
Canít you see that my relationship is stable
I know you think Iím not somethiní youíre afraid of
ĎCause you think that youíve seen what Iím made of
But I am even more than the two of them
Everything they care about is what I am
I am their fury, I am their patience, I am a conversation
I am made o-o-o-o-of l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve
And itís stronger than you
L-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve
And itís stronger than you
L-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve l-o-o-o-o-ve-o-o-o-o-o-ve
And itís stronger than you

SO GOOD

GARNET WAS AMAZING. That entire song-fight sequence was amazing, from Jasper zooming around like a Super Saiyan Sonic the Hedgehog to Garnet effortlessly dodging her attacks.

Sad what happened to Lapis Lazuli; I was hoping she'd finally find a home on Earth, but it seems like she didn't feel like she belonged anywhere. I'm glad Peridot escaped, because it leaves room for more in the future.

I like how Steven's half-human status proved to be the wrench in the homeworld gems' plans; their technology is so perfectly designed to counter gems it's useless against him. I wonder if Rose Quartz knew how important her son's human heritage would be in protecting him.

Amethyst is the same size now as she was when she left the hole thousands of years ago, so I don't think so. I'm guessing some gems are just naturally born small or big.

This also explains Jasper's disgust of fusion; as a gem born very large and strong, she doesn't like it when those born small can work together to be stronger than her.

Is there a chance that Amethyst is just so much younger than them that she is still that small?

I'm starting to think that Rose Quartz might have known something about the potential of a human/gem hybrid. Steven may have been a more calculated birth than we currently know.

I'm thinking season 2 might be a gather the allies season, and season 3 is take it to the homeworld kind of deal. Who knows though, there are probably a lot of twists we have no idea about yet.

The Council of Diamonds (White, Yellow and Blue... and maybe Green?) The spattering of yellow diamonds all over indicate this ship belongs to Yellow. Peridot and Jasper also sport yellow diamonds on their uniforms, meaning they are part of Yellow Diamond's unit.

Just two so far. Current theory is that Jasper is a Kindergarten Gem like Amethyst. They share similar features, but Amethyst is a "half-baked runt". Question is, did Jasper originate on Earth or elsewhere? By her own words she was definitely present on Earth and fought Rose Quartz during the rebellion.

Jasper seems to have it out for Rose Quartz. Steven might have to fight her directly one day, hope he'll be ready for it. Lapis can't keep her trapped forever...

EDIT: OH GOD

Pearl had a pink diamond insignia on her space suit! PINK DIAMOND. THE LORE BE TOO DEEP FOR ME I WANT OFF SUGAR'S RIDE!!!.

I was guessing the spin-dash is an ability of quartz-related gems, in which case Rose Quartz and Steven could probably do it. They do all have rather poofy hair.

It's also great how she only fused because she wanted the extra power, showing the difference between her and Ruby and Sapphire.

This show... wow! Just finished the special. It's transcended into one of my favorite shows, live action, animated or otherwise. I've actually enjoyed this Steven bomb more than House of Cards season 3.


I nearly shat tears when Ruby and Sapphire joined and when Garnet told Steven she already loved him.
I have a feeling the endgame will involve Homeworld realizing the potential of human and Zentradi... I mean human and gem bonding, doing away with kindergarten, and using humans as slaves towards some crazy master race plot (instead of destroying humans all together).
