Immediate reaction to Fusion Cuisine

Right about the motives for the Crystal Gems to fuse? You bet we were!

We may not have gotten to see them in the actual act of fusing, but boy was Alexandrite’s behavior interesting. She doesn’t quite fit in with how Opal and Sugilite acted, so yet again we’re waiting for the series to progress more to see if she’s an exception or if the rule is different than we thought it was.

What to expect from Fusion Cuisine

A while ago we were promised mothers in Beach City. Expect Fusion Cuisine to follow through on that promise and show us what Connie’s mother looks like.

This episode should be about all three of the Crystal Gems fusing together to pretend to be Steven’s mother. Presumably Garnet’s rather interesting method of conversation is one of the catalysts for the fusion: each Crystal Gem has her flaws, so Steven hopes that by combining them together he’ll get all of their best traits in one Gem.

Expect that not to go so well, if the original name for this episode was in fact Fusion Crime. If there are severe personality problems then it’s probably too early for Steven to use his fusion powers to fuse with the resulting Gem and stabilize it, but anything is possible.

We’ll be watching to see how a multi-fusion works: will all three of them fuse at the same time, or will two fuse first then the third will fuse with the resulting fusion Gem?

Could Ronaldo be on the right track?

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.

What we learned from Keep Beach City Weird!

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.

Preview for Fusion Cuisine

We wish Garnet was our mother. CoinOpTV has the preview for Fusion Cuisine up. Check it out:


Immediate reaction to Keep Beach City Weird!

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.
