Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 11: #StevenBomb

PodcastTitleStevenBombWith #StevenBomb over, GC13 and Ken get their final thoughts in on the event.

While the event was intense for lore, with all of the “filler” (if there is such a thing in Steven Universe) cut out, we’re still left with plenty of questions.

Perhaps most importantly, there’s now plenty of hype for the show going into season two. There are so many chickens that haven’t come home to roost yet, and we just know that season two will send some more out into the world.

Now that we’re back on our weekly schedule, the next episode of the podcast will be at the regular time next week and will cover Open Book.

    The Bomb starts at ‘Scabbard.’ Here we see Steven willing to accept Pearl’s Obi-Wan Kenobi version of Rose and Her Rebellion: pure good vs pure evil and everybody who had a complex personality eventually turned good. In ‘Return’ and ‘Jailbreak’ we see Steven face the Truth externally and from a godview of war. We have to end the Bomb with ‘Disclosure’ because this is an uninterrupted episode of Steven internalizing the Truth and having to face it form a personal human view–or at least that is probably why ‘Disclosure’ is beloved.

    PS Sticking with the “Kill Your Gods” theme:

    Everyone needs to remember right now Rose’s PHYSICAL relationship to Steven is kind of very similar to the relationship Shinji Ikari has with his mom in “Neon Genesis.” Steven’s phyiscal relationship to his mother is also the exact same one Eren Jaeger has with his father in “Attack on Titan.” Oh yeah, spoiler warning.

    All the corrupted Gems roaming the Earth, everyone thinks the Kindergarten was purposefully breeding Gems that would flash flood turn into monsters. I think Rose, in a desperate effort to win her war, turned most of her forces into monsters. Yes, she did this without their knowing and against their wills.

      Why the hell would you put a spoiler warning after the spoiler

    I kept forgetting to emphasize how much I really loved the ending to Rose’s Scabbard. It was emotionally resonant in a way that I think only Lion 3 also obtained. I also wanted to do a ranking but forgot, so here is my #stevenbomb power ranking:

    1) Jail Break
    2) Rose’s Scabbard
    3-4) Political Power , The Return
    5) The Message

    13) Full Disclosure

    I can see Peridot teaming up with Ronaldo.

    Have you noticed Ronaldo’s rising disdain for the Gems, and Beach City at large? Do you also remember how ”Garnet’s Universe” featured Ringo, a foe who looked and sounded like Ronaldo? Who powered up using a gem placed in his hair?

    We last saw Peridot heading for Earth. After she lands, she can browse the internet and find Ronaldo’s blog, reading up on his past with the CG’s and overall research of ”the weird”. The two can meet as Peridot tries to reclaim a part of her ship he salvaged. At one point, he rants about the Crystal Gems and their ties to “weirdness”, how he’s not at the center of it all, Beach City at large being sheep who don’t respect him, and what he thinks of Steven. Seeing a chance to pay back the CGs for her failures AND learn about Earth (especially Steven), Peridot offers Ronaldo a golden opportunity to be ”special’. She would somehow empower him using gem technology.

    Ronaldo would become the Homeworld’s answer to Steven; a meeting of man and gem but against the CGs and Earth. .

    Open Book could only happen in Season 2 at this point. Steven has knowledge of Unfamiliar Familiar, so Marble Madness would have to have happened before it.

    Like I said before, I think Pearl is a mass-produced Gem made to be assistants/housecarls to more powerful Gems. Rose had one of her own ( “My pearl…you’re wonderful…” ).

    Pearl’s gem is oval. Normal perfect pearls are round.

    An oblong or oval shaped Pearl is called Boroque.

    Boroque = too many details, annoying, odd.

    Pearl dotes on all details, she can be annoying, and her behavior can be erratic and odd.

    Pearl = Boroque Pearl

    How’d you know the gem Rose is fighting in the mural is the blue gem?

      • gc13 on March 18, 2015 at 11:28 am

      In the Serious Steven mural Rose Quartz is shaded pink while the Gem she’s fighting looks like she’s shaded blue.

      Using the color picker, however, I’m starting to think Rose is fighting White Diamond; the one she’s fighting, while apparently blue, is actually lighter than the one off to the left (and I hope we can agree that the one to the right looks pretty yellow).
