What we learned from Warp Tour

If you haven’t seen Warp Tour, then watch it. We mean it. This is a Big Deal episode, and you owe it to yourself to see it before you start reading about it. You’ll thank us later.

But if you have seen it already, you’re probably ready to geek out over it. In that case: read on.

Ratings for Warp Tour

ShowBuzzDaily has the ratings for the premier of Warp Tour last night, and in addition to igniting a firestorm (the good kind) it pulled in a respectable 1,942,000 viewers.

Preview for Alone Together

CN Preview brings us the preview for Alone Together.

“Who knows what’s gonna happen?” It sounds almost… Prophetic.


Immediate reaction to Warp Tour

Someone please send help: we think our heart just stopped.

The whole point of the immediate reaction posts is to shy away from spoilers, but this time we’re having a super-difficult time restraining ourselves. Suffice to say that, again, the hype is real. This episode definitely qualifies for “lore bomb” status, and we’re going to have some fun with this one.

Steven Universe: The Interview

Newsrama recently did an “interview” with Steven (the character), with Ms. Sugar providing the answers. Mostly it’s an interesting look at some fun minor characterization that probably won’t make it into the show, but it is dropped that Steven still can’t heal people after the events of House Guest.

As far as for what could be coming next in the series, we have this interesting exchange:

Steven: I dunno, I guess anything could happen, that’s usually how it is! I met a new Gem recently, her name was Lapis Lazuli and she seemed really cool! She flew away to the Gem Homeworld!

Pearl: Steven, please. Look, stranger. There’s nothing to worry about. Earth is an independent planet, and Lapis Lazuli couldn’t possibly have made it all the way home.

Steven: What? Oh no, oh Pearl, you really think so?

Pearl: Or, well, Steven, I’m sure she did, yes, right, she definitely made it back, I’m sure she’s… having a really fun time… telling everyone… nothing!

Fascinating. It doesn’t sound like we were far from the mark when we predicted the Crystal Gems were worried that Lapis could cause some serious trouble for them. Maybe Warp Tour will shed some light on why they were worried about the Galaxy Warp despite their insistence that Lapis couldn’t have made it home with just her wings.

Finally: an independent planet? What a tease. 😎

What to expect from Warp Tour

The big promise of Warp Tour is that we might just finally learn more about the Warp that the Crystal Gems are always zipping around the planet through. Did you see the preview? That shot right there will be worth it. There’s also a lot of promise for lore which might back up a universe-scale Gem war if the Crystal Gems want to explain the history to Steven.

Preview for Warp Tour

Coin Op TV has this week’s episode preview, a little late but definitely better than never.

It’s just… Wow. All of our dreams might come true after all.
