We’re still in a drought of getting soundtracks from Aivi and Surasshu (they’re hard at work on new songs, it seems), but Jeff Liu has been providing. It seems that we’ve gotten all we’re getting, so now it’s time to post the songs!
We have long speculated over exactly how Rose contributes to Steven’s personality. Now we know that Rose is half of Steven—much like a Gem fusion. It shouldn’t be hard to see why Amalgam is our song of the week this week!

This was definitely a lore episode, or at least one that made sure to give us a hefty package of it. It wasn’t overburdened though: like the other good lore episodes, Lion 3: Straight to Video is going to make us work for our understanding of the series, and we probably won’t fully appreciate what it hints at until later in the season.
Of course we still got some facts for immediate redemption. It wouldn’t be any fun otherwise.
We wanted characterization, and I think we got a lot of it. If you’re a lore aficionado then you should be very pleased by the episode. We didn’t learn enough to really edit the Backstory page, and the concrete lore we’ve learned is also rather low, but this week we’ve got a lot of fodder for the speculation mill. So much fodder…
Also: classic Pearl. 🙂
