Steven and Connie being insufferably cute, and the triumphant return of Jamie (and season two!). What’s not to love? Definitely make sure you tune in on April 23rd.
Well, there’s not much lore here (a smidgen, but… Well, that means not much), since it’s a very character-centric episode again. We don’t think there will be much lore or speculation to be had, but if we focused on the characters instead we’d be really happy with what we learned about Buck. Heck, even Mayor Dewey had some good moments. If this had aired before Political Power, the sudden focus on him might not have seemed so abrupt.
This is another episode where anything can happen. We know it will have Steven hanging out with Buck Dewey, but really: you just can’t predict the twist on an episode that’s had such a mundane-sounding summary released. There will definitely be a twist, but it’s just too tough to guess what it will be.
Since this is the last season-one episode to air, we can rule out a new power and Peridot. Since the preview involves Greg giving guitar lessons, we can hope he shows up. Other than that, it’s Steven Universe—who knows what’s gonna happen?
Ah, now this is the life: we’re into pure season two now, and while there’s a hiatus looming it’s still some weeks off yet. Next week we’ll see another new episode, Love Letters, airing on April 23 at 5:30 PM EDT.
Steven and Connie help Jamie the mailman.
Aivi and Surasshu have given us another fusion theme (with quite a bit of the menacing parts of Sugilite’s theme). Enjoy Malachite (0:53), from the end of Jailbreak. You’re stuck on this miserable planet with the best.
GC13, Ken, and Dakota discuss another of our season-one refugees: Story for Steven.
Oddly enough for an episode without any fusing, fusion Gems are discussed quite a bit. Sour Cream (and the now likely identity of his father) is also discussed, as is his (probably half-) brother, the dark lord Onion. Gem outfits and episode synopses also get a fair amount of talk time.
Next week we’ll be discussing the last episode originally produced with season one, Shirt Club. Don’t miss it!
Yeah, that’s technically not its full title, but that’s not the important part: the important part is that it was one of Rose’s favorites. Their courtship started with music, so this week Quadrinometry (The Secret of the Wave Lies in Creation) is the song of the week.
