It was a long wait, but the season finale finally came.
The Return gave us a brief confirmation of a lot of what we had suspected about Gemkind: Steven basically figured out what we had figured out a long time ago about why the Gems came to Earth. We also learned that even if the official records don’t show what happened to Earth, at least some Gems on the homeworld remember.
Jail Break also directly confirmed that some Gems are stronger than others, again something we were able to infer from looking at the implied strength of Rose Quartz. That jam was also worth every bit of anticipation.
So we have the season-two premier coming up tomorrow, then we’ll have to sit down and do the hard work of parsing all of this. We can already guess at least some of what’s going to happen in season two, though Full Disclosure should hopefully tell us a bit more. Implications… Awe-inspiring.
