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.

Beach City Horror Club
Steven goes to the lighthouse to watch scary movies with Ronaldo, Lars, and Sadie.

Song of the week: Paronaldo Activity

So now it’s official: Garnet has Weird powers! And that’s not all: Ronaldo’s fridge fell on him! What are the odds? This can’t be a coincidence… Something strange is going on around here. Beach City was definitely weird this week, which means it’s only natural that Paronaldo Activity is the song of the week.

What could Future Vision mean?

Alright, we’ve taken care of the more traditional lore implications. Now it’s time to get weird: what might Future Vision have to say about the future of the series?

Decoding Garnet’s future vision

Tomorrow we have… Well, a bit of speculating to do. Today is about the hard stuff, though: what we know. We don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that Future Vision answered some questions about Garnet’s precognitive powers, so it’s time to take those answers and examine the implications more closely.

Ratings for Future Vision

It finally happened: for the first time since Secret Team aired Steven Universe has got back to the ratings it deserves. This week Future Vision premiered with 2,027,000 viewers.

Immediate reaction to Future Vision

Future Vision certainly didn’t disappoint when it comes to how Garnet’s perception of the future works. We should certainly be able to tease out a fair bit about it. Look forward to it on Saturday! Then the Speculating can start on Sunday. 🙂

What to expect from Future Vision

This one’s a tough one to make predictions for… Unlike Garnet, we can’t see the future.

Still, we can make an educated guess about Garnet’s future vision: it can’t be all that good. Using just Warp Tour as an example, it wasn’t enough to see Steven’s death in the warp more than a minute before it happened and it certainly wasn’t good enough to see Peridot coming.

She has heightened perception, so hopefully we’ll also hear a bit about that. The question on everyone’s mind though, that we rather doubt we’ll get an answer to: what’s up with Garnet’s third eye?

New episode: On the Run will air on February 5, 2015

Back with re-runs, and back with trained attack raccoons. Definitely make sure you check out On the Run at 6:30 PM EST on February 5, 2015: we think this one’s going to be good.

On the Run
Steven and Amethyst try out life on the road.
