New episode: Winter Forecast will air on February 19, 2015

On the Run was a very significant episode with an unassuming synopsis. We don’t expect the crew to pull the same trick twice so quickly succession, but maybe that’s the trick? It looks like we’ll have to watch at 6:30 PM EST on February 19 to find out.

Winter Forecast
Steven has to get Connie home before it snows.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 1: On the Run

PodcastTitleIn the first episode of our podcast, Takuza, MexicanGameboy, and GC13 discuss On the Run and what could be coming at the end of season one. Is the Kindergarten the full extent of the homeworld’s plans for Earth, or was there more to it? What was Lapis Lazuli doing on Earth? How did the corruption occur?

Finally, and most importantly, there is an urgent call for fan art: please make your best picture of Pearl wielding an axe and getting a little too into the spirit of being a viking warrior and link to it in the comments section. We need it.

What could On the Run mean?

There was a lot yesterday that we wanted to talk about but had to wait on. Today is the day to run wild, however: it’s speculation day! Like any good lore episode, On the Run asked as least as many questions as it answered. It’s time to go in and wonder about some of those questions.

What we learned from On the Run

We made this warning with Warp Tour and now we’re making it with On the Run: you definitely want to see this one for yourself before we pick it apart for all of the lore goodies inside.

Today is the day where we discuss its (significant) lore impact. Tomorrow we’ll speculate about what could be waiting for us next. Remember: answer one question and two more will rise to take its place.

Ratings for On the Run

The two-million club is pretty great, and Steven Universe made it in again this week with On the Run: 2,084,000 people tuned in to see it.

Immediate reaction to On the Run

This one got some huge lore and characterization for us. This is definitely another Big Deal episode, and while we’ve been getting and will continue to get a lot of those, we think this one deserves special note for finally answering at least one huge question that had been hanging over the entire series.

Plus we get a brand new location. The locations page hasn’t been carefully maintained lately, but it’s definitely getting an update after On the Run.

What to expect from On the Run

This one has a lot of promise. If you’ve seen the preview aired at MAGFest then you know the song is really good (as expected), and Steven and Amethyst head out for parts unknown. It would be best if the episode showed a bit of human society outside of Beach City, but all we know is that they ride the train somewhere. Will they be able to reach a town before the inevitable magical twist happens?

There’s a lot of stuff to hope for on this one. Will Amethyst spill some information about her past? Maybe we’ve been all wrong and she didn’t know the others until Rose was already around. Any backstory at all will be welcome, be it about the world, individual Crystal Gems, or anything in between.

Interestingly enough a clip in a commercial shows that the Crystal Gems have collected the defunct flask robonoids that Peridot left behind in Warp Tour. It doesn’t look like they dwell on it much, but they might slip a fact to us.

New episode: Beach City Horror Club will air on February 12, 2015

It looks like Ronaldo still hasn’t given up on the lighthouse as his secret base. Who knows what kind of magical twist can come out of this episode? We’ll definitely be watching at 6:30 PM EST on February 12, 2015.
