What we learned from Winter Forecast

Ah, Steven trying to get Connie home before the snow gets too bad. It’s a simple episode, isn’t it? Nothing lore-worthy could possibly happen in that, right? You would be reasonable to think that, but it doesn’t change the fact that you’d be wrong.

Steven Universe has made a habit of trying to get us lore in surprising places. Which might make what we learned in Winter Forecast a little less surprising.

Aivi and Surasshu post: Death Rag

Ah, from Future Vision Aivi and Surasshu have posted the jaunty little piano rag from Steven’s many possible ways to die, Death Rag (1:04).

Immediate reaction to Winter Forecast

What is it about the innocuous-sounding episodes that tends to drop such bombshells?

We have some rethinking to do, and… Well… We’re going to have to prepare to edit the Locations page again in the future, it seems. 😀

Steven Universe to have crossover with Uncle Grandpa

Color us very surprised that this is actually real, but it’s Ian Jones-Quartey tweeting the article out.

We’re not entirely sure on how to feel about this, really. As canon hawks, though, we rather doubt that it will be considered to have “actually happened” as far as the show’s continuity is concerned.

Rose Quartz by Deeum



Ah, Rose Quartz. As crucial as she is to the series, she remains largely in the background. Well artist Deeum has taken a good look at her and decided to give her some fanart. Make sure to check the full-size version on Tumblr.

Aivi and Surasshu post: Future Vision

From the episode Future Vision we get the appropriately named Future Vision (0:27) to end the drought of music releases since The Test.



What to expect from Winter Forecast

Winter Forecast looks to be another character episode, this time featuring Connie and Greg as the two side characters we’ll be spending eleven minutes with (along with Steven, of course). It’s another good mix, as we never really got to see the two interacting together in Ocean Gem (they had different travel arrangements).

As the name indicates, we’ll get to see some really cold weather (though the night in Horror Club was plenty cold). Maybe we’ll even the Crystal Gems in sweaters, though we’re still hoping to see that in Maximum Capacity instead.

Other than that, this is another “all bets are off” episode.

New episode: Maximum Capacity will air on February 26, 2015

Finishing out our February episodes will be Maximum Capacity, airing at 6:30 PM EST on February 26, 2015. As always, be sure to watch it!

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 2: Horror Club

PodcastTitleIn the second episode of the podcast Hunter joins the crew after losing a Super Smash Brothers tournament. Horror Club is the subject of this week’s podcast, and the crew has a lot of questions: what should the Ronaldo x Sadie ship be named, why is Ronaldo so weird, and what does the diamond mean? Things get so confusing, even the meanings of “earliest” and “latest” become flexible!

Everyone is really excited for what the gem revealed at the end of Horror Club could mean for the future of the series. To think, such plot potential included in an episode focused on side characters.
