Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 287: Together Forever and Growing Pains

Ken returns for the end of the Universe, and he, GC13, Isabelle, and David discuss the two latest episodes of Steven Universe: Future: Together Forever and Growing Pains.

Well, if In Dreams and Bismuth Casual were the hope spots, there was definitely more heartache put into these two episodes. Steven is clearly feeling isolated and is making bad decisions, even when he seeks the counsel of those who should know better. At least now Steven has the most information he’s had yet about what’s going on with him.

This episode of the podcast is also available on YouTube.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 286: In Dreams and Bismuth Casual

GC13, Isabelle, Sophia, and David discuss the beginning of the end of Steven Universe: Future: In Dreams and Bismuth Casual.

This is it: the happiest Steven is likely to be before the finale. Savor it. Savor the Camp Pining Hearts reboot, the skating rink, and Cam’s Camshafts.
