Ah, the calm before the storm: we know the faintest hints of what is coming (see the episode summaries here), but we all know from experience that Steven Universe episode summaries are only vaguely reliable for letting you know what to expect.
Sworn to the Sword will start the week off with a fairly normal-sounding plotline. The easy way to go with this would be to have Steven be jealous of Connie (the promo seems to indicate she’s quite good), but Steven doesn’t seem to be the jealous type. Besides, he knows he’s good: could Connie have defeated Holo-Pearl with the Boomerang Blade?
Of course if Rising Tides/Crashing Skies actually does feature the return of Malachite… No. No, that’s impossible. They would never schedule something so huge on a Tuesday. Would they? They might have just taken the next five episodes and put them all together, so we’re just going to have to see. If Malachite does show up, it’s going to be a hard act to follow.
Keeping It Together is probably the episode with the most suggestive title: it sure makes it sound like it’s going to involve Garnet having trouble staying fused, and since the episode summary mentions the Kindergarten you know it’s going to be a big deal.
We Need To Talk also says enough to give us an idea what the episode will be about, while being tight-lipped enough to be intriguing. Will we finally get to see the temple fusion form in action?
You get no points for guessing that Chille Tid won’t actually be about a slumber party—unless it’s a storytime episode like Garnet’s Universe, in which case it still won’t be about a slumber party, but at least they’ll be doing slumber party stuff in it.
