Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 51: Back to the Barn

PodcastTitleSophia, Ken, GC13, and Hunter continue to conduct the Peridemption train and discuss Back to the Barn and the huge lore drop about Pearls (next stop, Pink Diamond Station!).

This was one of those big episodes. Of course everyone is excited about the confirmation of the Servant Pearl Theory, but we’re building robots now. Even if the episode was a bit predictable, Peridot learned an important lesson that is keeping her on track for joining the team full-time.

We can’t let all of the thrill of learning about homeworld distract from the fact that Steven Universe takes place in an alternate history: there are no holidays (that link to Mr. Burnett’s tweet is for when he un-protects his account), and the Americas were also probably settled much later.

The fourth-quarter break is almost upon us. Make sure not to miss Too Far on Thursday, because it will be the last episode for at least a little while.

    1) I’m really glad you added Sophia to the podcast, she’s a great addition!
    2) Teen Titans Go is awful! Awful, awful, awful! Teen Titans was a great super hero show, and now it’s basically one big fart joke.
    3) It’s a nice connection that Pearls are a manufactured gem class, just like actual pearls are made by oysters.
    4) Seems fairly probable that Pearl was specifically made for Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond, and that ‘cuz she was a Diamond, of course she had a very fancy Pearl.

      I’m gonna be a constant defender of Teen Titans Go, cause it’s a good show. Good, good,good! At least as funny as Steven Universe. At least.

      1. Meh. It just doesn’t work for me. Hope that someday they do another series more serious, like the original, but, who knows?

    What Garnet took out of her popcorn bag was that bad, hard burnt kernel you always get in popcorn, that’s why her face was like “oops, almost ate that one, very sneaky.” The joke is basically this serious competition is happening and Garnet is more focused on her popcorn.

    I think the reason Peridot doesn’t build new limb enhancers is mainly because, while both the mech and the arms seem advanced to us, the actually level of tech in the limbs seems greater. The mech relied on explosives and springs and other advanced but more grounded tech, while the limbs were capable of generating light projections, hovering fingers, and that powerful energy blast. Plus, the main reason the limbs were important was because they contained the data for the Cluster.

    I’m also starting to wonder if every Gem represented in that 4 color symbol is supposed to be a diamond. Maybe Yellow Diamond is the only high ranking diamond, while the other 3 colors represent other high ranking Gems on the level of Diamond. We have no evidence yet of Gems using titles beyond their job description and gem type, so calling non-diamonds Diamonds seems uncharacteristic.

      It also would make sense with the caste systems of the home world, with each caste have a respective leader.

    The reason Pearl did not pull Peridot out of her robot and beat her up is because it was an engineering battle from the beginning, and even though Pearl was happy to end it with a tie she probably still wanted to show Peridot she was just as good of an engineer.

    You are lucky. Strangely enough, matt said the comics are Canon (as long as they don’t mess with the story) and there was a holiday commercial in one issue.

    It makes a LOT of sense for there to have been no ww2 or xmas in this universe
