It may not be the best episode ever, but it’s the one that gave us the term “mid-season pre-finale”, which has retroactively been applied to the Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem two-parter. Plus, Steven in a little bowtie. What’s not to love?
Well, Pearl did develop an incredibly strong aversion to eating, thirty-two episodes into the series. That was a little weird. Maybe someone should close the gate, lest anything happen to the pie.
Still, if this episode doesn’t get you hyped to go work on an apple farm, then what will?
