Not having Cartoon Network on Dish Network is continuing to hurt. TV Media Insights puts Keep Beach City Weird! at 1,446,000 viewers.
Garnet is a mysterious mystery to all of us. On November 13, at the usual time of 6:45 PM EST, we’ll learn just how much of a mystery she is to Steven too.
Steven imagines what Garnet does with her day.
There have been a lot of weird things happening in Beach City since… Well, forever, really. Steven knows a thing or two about how things get when it gets really weird, so this week’s song of the week is Glitch City.

Ronaldo is a side character no more: as of Keep Beach City Weird! he’s bucking for a job as a prophet. Only time will tell if he’s qualified, but we’ve already taken a look at his predictions. Now it’s time to buckle down and wonder what the fact that Ronaldo made his predictions might mean for the history and future of the show.
We’ve always felt like we were cut from the same cloth as Ronaldo. Keep Beach City Weird! was a particularly close look at the difficulties involved in our work: tomorrow’s speculation post will be meatier, but let’s take a look at the facts we’ll be working with.
We definitely feel a deep, deep kinship with Ronaldo. Maybe we should open up a fry shop.
This episode… Oh, this episode. Ronaldo may be barking up the wrong tree, but we feel like we are on the cusp of a big breakthrough!
As is appropriate for a conspiracy episode, Keep Beach City Weird! has provided an extraordinary amount of material for speculation. The backstory of Gems on Earth, especially, might end up having to be revised if future episodes follow up on what we’ve seen today.
This is going to be an interesting one (as you’d know if you had watched the preview). It looks like most of this episode is going to be in a flashback or story narration, like An Indirect Kiss.
So we should finally get to see more Ronaldo. That’s great! Since he’s the crackpot of the series, constantly trying to make sense of the weird things that the Crystal Gems inevitably cause to happen (or at least involve themselves in after the fact), we identify most with him. Ronaldo never fails to amuse, and his blog is always fun to check after an episode has aired. He also has buttons!
According to one of the commercials we should finally get to see Garnet shapeshift her entire body in this episode. While the ability of all Gems to shapeshift was established in Cat Fingers at the same time the power was being introduced, there has been speculation that only Amethyst has the power to manipulate her entire body; it’s good that another Gem has finally decided to use the power.
Other than that, sit back and enjoy Episode #31, the Halloween episode!
Thursday next week will see another new episode at 6:45 PM EST. This one was initially known to us as Fusion Crime, but multiple sources are calling it Fusion Cuisine instead. As such, we’ve gone ahead and edited this post to account for that.
In an effort to win over Connie’s parents, Steven convinces the Gems to fuse together and pretend to be his mother.
