Looking back at Beach City Drift

Is it wrong to be excited to see Kevin in ordinary lighting? He may be a creep, but only knowing what he looked like under the rave’s crazy lighting just felt wrong. Now we know, and knowing is half the street race.

Speaking of knowing helping you win a street race, who cares to guess how Stevonnie mastered some serious drifting despite never having driven a car before? We go from Steven “practicing” driving by imagining his own movie trailer to Stevonnie nearly winning a race despite never having driven before. We’re going to go with “a fusion is more than the sum of its parts” to soothe our minds for now, but the question shall remain.

Real talk though, Dire Dire Drift (2:27) is an amazing song. We’re accustomed to Steven Universe having a great soundtrack, but the race’s theme is just on a whole other level.

    is it possible that stevonnie has some sort of power that allows them to do amazing things, but it takes some sort of mental toll on them which causes them to hallucinate?

      The way Garnet explains it in Mindful Education the hallucination is a fusion thing, not unique to Stevonnie.

    The Dondai Supremo is built like a rally car in a sense, so it would make sense that its strong suit would be drifting and corner handling, while the XL5(?) would be good on the flat.

    Yeah, this episode awoke the Top Gear fan in me
