Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 93: Warp Tour

PodcastTitleGC13, Sophia, and Dakota discuss a big episode: Warp Tour.

So Peridot didn’t turn out to be the biggest, baddest Gem we’d ever see—in fact she turned out to be great and lovable! That doesn’t make her reveal any less amazing.

Looking back on Warp Tour with the benefit of knowledge gained in later episodes we know why the homeworld was finally returning to Earth after so long. At the moment though? With no information? That’s quite a bomb to drop in the series.

Now Peridot is small and living in a barn with Lapis. (Jasper next? Maybe? Please?)

    This was probably the episode where I officially became obsessed with Steven Universe. Not just because of the shocking Peridot reveal, but also how strongly it emphasized how Steven had grown. Regarding Sophia’s nit-pick about it being a cliche plot, as someone that spends far too much time on TvTropes can say, tropes are not bad. This type of plot is usually bad when the characters disbelieve each other arbitrarily, but knowing how much the Crystal Gems fear Homeworld, and how much they lost the last time they encountered them, it makes sense that they’d be in denial about their return. Steven’s reaction is also justified, since until now, they’ve given good enough explanations for his questions, but this time they didn’t even bother with that. Considering how much development they had already gone through and how much he thought they trusted him, it must have hurt for them to immediately shoot down his judgement.

    I think this episode was also pretty crazy for being the first one with such a strong cliffhanger that 1. wasn’t immediately followed up like Mirror Gem 2. didn’t even get addressed in the next episode. It’s especially jarring since this episode was all about Steven demanding answers, so you’d think he’d get some after that big reveal. My theory is that the reason they started training him to fuse in the next episode was to start preparing him in case Homeworld shows up again.

      also Garnet using her Giant Gauntlet powers forshadowed in Garnet’s Universe!

    I loved this episode, when I saw it, it gave me, and it gave us our first glance at Homeworld and Gems, and I was like ” gems are hyper advanced alien beings OMG” I thought every Gem would look like Peridot did, I was wrong though.

    Did Dakota abandon you guys mid recording session? Oh well.

    I like the GC Sofia episodes most anyway!

    Also I cant believe you didn’t mention Garnet wearing the oven mitts for the cookies. Also it was nice to see them revisit all the old locations during this episode. The geode is holding nicely, after all!

      His recording kind of just stopped, so I had to do what I could with what we had.

    I have a theory about Rose Quartz. She may in fact still exist, at Mia be alive. Now hear me out guys, this is my take on it. So, Rose Quartz gave birth to Steven Quartz Universe, but with a catch, as giving up her physical form to bring him into the world. Her “physical form”, or her hologram with mass. Her consciousness could still be out there, and it is. Had of her conscious is in Steven, but where is the other half, you may ask? That is where the infamous Lion comes in. We know Steven is half gem and half human, but where did HIS other half go? Lion is the answer. Steven can and can’t do some gem stuff, like be pooled, or go into his gem world inside his gem. But he can with Lion, and as we see, Lion is pink, and so was Rose Quartz’s hair. But Lion isn’t a gem (unconfirmed), but he also isn’t a normal lion. Steven’s missing human part of himself is part of Lion, and so is the other half of Rose Quartz, as her other part of her consciousness could have shape shifted into a pink Lion. Lion could be physical, which could mean he has a physical body, where Steven’s missing part of himself could be. As this is just a theory, but we see in the episode Rose’s Scabbard. none of the gems knew about Rose having a Lion. Lion was also dumped into the show without reason, too. We need to learn more about Lion’s backstory, to back up this theory, or to disprove it.
