Immediate reaction to Log Date 7 15 2

This wasn’t so much a lore episode, but we really needed time to settle down and digest what we’d already learned. That doesn’t mean there’s not something to be excited about, though! Opal!

Plus we’ve learned that Peridot is a shipper.

    I still don’t get why people are so obsessed with Opal.

      • gc13 on January 8, 2016 at 6:11 pm

      How could you not be excited about seeing more of Best Fusion?

        • Mystique on January 8, 2016 at 11:33 pm

        All that hope seemed to work 😉

          • gc13 on January 9, 2016 at 12:07 am

          I’m not done hoping yet. That sounded like new voice work from Ms. Mann, and they wouldn’t bring her in for one grunt.

            • Mystique on January 9, 2016 at 3:36 am

            I couldn’t be more excited (for Opal) 😀

    Probably the biggest surprises where the sudden art shift in the show Peridot was watching, and how Garnet suggesting Peridot fuse with her felt a lot like a come-on.

      • Igz on January 8, 2016 at 7:02 pm

      The fact that my dad was watching the episode with me made that scene a LOT more awkward.

    • Jon P on January 8, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    The fact that Garnet spent the month-plus at the barn super-chill (from “I chased the cows away” to “Don’t want to”) and starting to get Peridot to relate to her must have made her outburst on the moon all the more terrifying to Peridot.
    We got to see, if only for a second or two, the Opal fusion dance successfully completed. It’s not clear if that was before or after Pearl and Amethyst got their groove on at the birthday party.
    I’ve got some thoughts to work out about the use of future vision at the end of tonight’s episode. If it’s as powerful as Sapphire’s was presented to be in “The Answer” (yes, the one prediction we heard was only mostly correct, but it was implied she had a perfect record up until then), then it makes it hard to have a conflict that seems genuine or difficult. If Garnet really knew, days ago, that Peridot would wind up giving Steven the tape recorder… what else did she know about what would happen in the days in between that would lead up to that action?

      • SUfan on January 8, 2016 at 10:19 pm

      Garnet can only predict things about what she knows. Things that she didn’t know was happening or existed cannot be predicted. She didn’t know Peridot stole the communicator so it wasn’t part of the future she saw.

        • Bugberry on January 9, 2016 at 11:32 am

        Yeah, Garnet probably only saw that Peridot would have a freak out for some reason and give Steven her recorder, and considering how erratic Peridot usually is, she probably didn’t think it was for anything out of the ordinary.

      1. Or with Pearl using her to fuse, and not able to see Peridot.

    • Emerald on January 8, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    I wonder who Peridot will fuse wih first. To be honest if her and Garnet fuse I hope their hair is in the shape of a star. I really like how this series is building with the short episodes it has, it feels like they are giving us everything they can with the time they have on screen. Now I am really scared when Yellow Diamond shows up one of the gems we care about is going to get shattered. I am excited though, to quote Connie, “GAH!!! This show is so good!”

  1. So, now that the week is done…….when is it coming back? Next month? Soon? I’m not sure.

    i’m a dirty polygems shipper and this episode was GOLD for my gay little heart

    • Something Witty on January 9, 2016 at 1:58 am

    I saw some screenshot of the credits crediting Shelby and Estelle as the voices of “Jade” and im not sure if its real or not cuz i watched it online, not at home.

    Also, our lord and savior Opal has returned! Huzzah!

    Though…i want more Sardonyx, or at least confirmation that Pearl and Ruby makes Sard and that Pearl and Sapphire makes Onyx.

      • gc13 on January 9, 2016 at 11:34 am

      That screenshot was confirmed to be fake on Twitter by the Crewniverse, and it had the wrong voice actress for Yellow Diamond anyway.

    • Elijah Lawson on January 9, 2016 at 8:59 am

    Slow down the episode during Peridot’s Shipping rant you will hear her talking about about Lapis getting back her limb enhancers

      • Iggy on January 9, 2016 at 2:55 pm

      Do you know where or how I can see a slowed down video of Peridot’s rant?

        • Jon P on January 10, 2016 at 5:22 pm

        Video, I’m not sure, but there are slowed down audio copies scattered about tumblr, the SU Wiki has a transcript:
        …using his strategy to save her. Not to mention Percy is adept at aquatic sports. He would have won the canoe race if he weren’t so busy drooling over Paulette, and the other part where Percy goes to the bottom of the lake to get Paulette’s friendship bracelet proved that he has the largest lung capacity of anyone in the entire camp! And Pierre is a force to be reckoned with on land, when he [??? something about a tree or creek]

        Lauren Zuke has said it is close, but not quite accurate.
