Are you excited for the new Steven Bomb starting on May 8? Have you resisted the urge to watch Lion 4: Alternate Ending? Then you’re in luck! Cartoon Network has posted a preview for it. Enjoy!
Despite some initial microphone difficulties, it’s an episode worth listening to because Crack the Whip is an episode worth watching. It has Stevonnie riding Lion into battle, for crying out loud. What more could you want? Perhaps the start of a character arc for Amethyst? (Or at least the final phase of her big one.)
Lion is just great by the way. Whether he’s riding in a ferris wheel, helping bother seagulls, or simply dressed for a rave he’s fun to have around (even if it’s rather suspicious that he’d just so happen to be around now…).
Just remember: in the heat of battle, you’re not going to have a swimsuit.
All times are EDT. (And may we say it is wonderful to have re-runs to list again.)

Cartoon Network has dropped a big promo online. This is a Get Hype trailer of the highest degree, like “What we really are” but with clips tantalizing enough to back it up.
Plus, if that’s not enough to hype you up, the date should: Monday, May 8, 2017. Seventeen days away. Re-runs are even resuming next week, as if that wasn’t enough reason to be excited.
Dare you see the trailer they are airing? It is below, if you wish to see it:
It’s an episode where important stuff happens, especially some crucial character building. However for whatever reason it just feels… Strange. It’s hard to place.
What’s easy to see, however, is how precious Pearl is in this episode. She is pearlfection incarnate, and is cute as can be. Which was your favorite Pearl line? It might be hard to pick just one.
That’s not to say that Connie wasn’t adorable as well, nor that Steven didn’t put in a good performance. There’s plenty of cute to go around.
Still no re-runs. 🙁
Cartoon Network has finally heard one of our many cries: on June 2, we’ll be getting an official soundtrack release of some kind. This comes a day after they tweeted out a poll asking if people wanted one. (Obviously we were getting one anyway, but we appreciate their use of hype.)
We still don’t have any information about which songs will be included, though Aivi has tweeted that she and Surasshu remastered the tracks that will be in the release.
As of now there are only plans for a digital release, but if you’re interested in seeing Steven Universe get a vinyl soundtrack release Ms. Sugar has tweeted her request that you let Cartoon Network know what you want. 🙂
If you want to listen to a preview, they tweeted a bit of the opening theme.
Greg starts his flashback with a marvelous song (which has Rose being about as adorable as is legally allowed on television), and while we don’t learn anything really weighty in the plot it’s great to see what Rose was like in her casual hours (when not waging war to defend the Earth).
Sour Cream was apparently Super Baby back as a child, with not only the best possible face and voice but the ability to crawl up tall objects while offscreen. Can his powers of chill defeat Greg’s laser-sharp focus?
No Steven Universe re-runs this week either, everybody. Maybe next week.
So of course the podcast starts out very heavy, discussing the very real-world relationship troubles that Lapis has been going through, and that Jasper brings back. This all happened because the ship was named the Misery—that has to be what did it.
Of course there are lighter things to discuss. GC13 and Sophia both hope that someone will explain the “What crackers go with caviar? Water crackers.” joke, because as it stands there is no satisfying explanation that makes the joke funny.
