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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
