GC13 and Dakota blast off at the speed of light to recap #StevenBomb3. It wasn’t the heavy face-punch of plot that was the first #StevenBomb, but it was still a good run, wouldn’t you say?
The way the episodes fit together is discussed (this is definitely a five-episode story arc), as is Peridot’s propensity for escape (though there’s no consensus on which of her two escapes in Friend Ship was more believable).
Keystone Motel makes us realize just how little we know about the homeworld Gems: while we no longer believe Ruby and Sapphire to be artisans, it’s hard making educated guesses about what their actual roles are. Ruby does seem to be quite a bit more “expendable” than Sapphire though, with the temperament of a fighter.
