Sophia and GC13 discuss the last episode of the In Too Deep event: Hit the Diamond. The fans wanted a baseball game, and we got it!
Rev up those Ruby jokes, but while they may not be the brightest Gems out there they can play baseball pretty well. They’re no match for Earl, Amy, Bob, and Sophie though (and Steven!).
So, which Ruby was your favorite? Each comes with her own distinctive personality (and even two distinct outfits!). Pearls may be the fancy ones, but apparently the homeworld isn’t super strict about who gets to look a little different. Of course why the Rubies have such different personalities is a bit confusing, but hopefully we’ll see them later. Ruby and the Rubies!
Perhaps Sapphire just prefers to have her legs tucked into the folds of her dress, or her dress is long and poofy enough to hide them, so it appears she has no legs. Also, I never got that Peridot was “thirsty” last episode.
I’m also surprised you guys didn’t bring up how the Ruby’s orders said that Jasper was considered the leader of the Earth mission. It’s odd since Jasper wouldn’t have gone unless Peridot had made her report. Perhaps Jasper was her immediate superior in charge of the mission and had assigned Peridot to Earth. It remains uncertain just how immediately concerned Homeworld is with Earth, since YD seems to hate it immensely, yet they aren’t thorough enough to send more Gems to Earth to check on things, at least ones smarter than Rubies. And about that, up till now every Homeworld Gem that has come to Earth is now stuck on it and unable to inform Homeworld about the Crystal Gems, but now the Team Ruby has broken that trend.
Has Ken left the podcast for good? I enjoyed his takes on the episodes and the diversity of opinions.
Hey, I’m still around in theory, just currently much harder for me to make it to recording sessions than was the case in the past due to a series of EXCITING and FUN adventures. Thanks for the kind words
What’s confusing about the personalities? Gem placement. That is all.
Fair enough, but look at the Homeworld Rubies. One was our Ruby, another had her gem on the back of her right hands, and the third Ruby had her gem on her shoulder. Yet, for the most part, these Rubies acted almost the same and often in unison. Compare this to the Rube squad in this episode; their personalities are much more distinct as are their outfits (which is more significant than you’d think). In fact, the Ruby dubbed “Army” has her gem on her shoulder, the same location that one of the Rubies from “The Answer” had her gem located (granted it was on the opposite shoulder). So by the theory that gem personality is influenced by gem placement (which has a lot of potential), these two Rubies would have to have very similar personalities. But they don’t; Army is much more aggressive. Sooooo, there’s probably other factors at play here, one of them probably being changes in Homworld’s societal restrictions. So there is a lot to talk about here actually!
Waaaaiiiit, I just came to a realization, probably not a big deal though. Was the conflict in Steven and the Stevens analogous to Homeworld’s caste system? Steven (original) assigned each of his other time versions a personality, role, etc. and did NOT allow any deviation from said assignments. I’m sorta hoping here that this is some earlyish Season 1 foreshadowing but I may be grasping at straws. Nice podcast episode today though!
Oooooh, nice hustle theory! So would that make Amethyst their Rose Quartz, since she was willing to stand up to the Diamond (Steven) for them? (Kind of.)
I just realized. After watching that short “Leak” with Steven making an SU outta clouds I get it now. “Alone At Sea” is Steven and Jasper in a dream.
Can I just say Hunter sounds like Greg from the show. And can you please do a blooper set of lines?
