Alright, with the hiatus it’s time to look back on the series and have a bit of discussion about some of the most important episodes. We thought it would only be natural to start with Serious Steven, which was not only Steven’s first outing on a real mission but was also called back to in The Test, when Pearl and Garnet designed their test chambers using traps that they knew Steven had experienced before.
The pyramid temple was quite an enigma itself. Set in the middle of a historic battlefield, it suggests no immediate purpose but proves to be quite a harrowing experience for the unwary. It proved unable to handle it when Garnet broke sequence after Steven figured out its trick, but still left an impression.
Of course, as cool a thing as a temple was, it wasn’t the big thing. It wasn’t the thing.
That’s an honor reserved for the mural at the temple entrance. We can only see three panels of it, but it’s only now that we’ve been shown enough about the series to really make some serious guesses about what we’re seeing. Just look at it:
So, this is the purpose of Assigned Viewing: what do you think is going on in this mural? What is it commemorating? Do we know enough yet? How long until the next piece of information about this scene drops? Get to discussing in the Comments section!
