You’ll have to forgive us if this was a bit slow, we just… We just need a moment. That was intense. Really Zircon did all a lot of the fun theorizing for us. There’s still a lot to chew on though! I mean, it’s Homeworld. What could be bigger than even a glimpse of Homeworld? …

We learned a valuable lesson, one even with some lore attached: never underestimate the story power of character episodes. 😉 So yes, even though this was a story episode, it looks like we learned a very important lesson about balloons: sometimes, you just have to pop one.
Ronaldo is back, so we don’t even mind that this is a character episode! (Well, some people are… Less enthused than others.) Rocknaldo won’t be offering much room for lore or speculation, but Steven is Steven and Ronaldo is Ronaldo. Most importantly, however: Tiger Philanthropist awaits.
Ah, the dreaded character episode strikes again. (Then again, Out of This World had some serious lore bombs in it that we’re still planning on getting back to.) Still, as far as character episodes go, what a thing to be coming to grips with.
The New Crystal Gems will be most interesting from a lore point of view in how it relates to the Out of This World event, but on its own it’s great to see Peridot and Lapis interacting with someone new. (It’s also great to see Lapis getting heavily into character—she’s so method.)
Well first off, we learned that Greg wasn’t kidding in Steven’s Birthday when he said that the Crystal Gems didn’t know much about babies. Other than that, this episode had a bit of information for us without dropping any huge bombshells. Let’s see what’s inside.
This episode was a bonanza for the timeline, giving us a pretty tight age range for a lot of characters (mostly confirming old guesses). We also got another good look at the Crystal Gems’ reactions to the loss of Rose, though there’s not as much new information in that. We also award ourselves no points …
Gem Harvest is another episode that won’t be long-remembered for its lore (but it definitely will be long-remembered, don’t you worry about that!). Do you want to see the cast celebrate Thanksgiving without even having to mention the holiday? Because that’s what we got, and we’re definitely thankful for it!
Well, that makes it two weeks in a row without much in the way of lore information. This time we didn’t even get a smidgen of a timeline update! Anyway, Steven Universe is back on break for now, so it will be a little while until the next new episode airs.
