Despite some initial microphone difficulties, it’s an episode worth listening to because Crack the Whip is an episode worth watching. It has Stevonnie riding Lion into battle, for crying out loud. What more could you want? Perhaps the start of a character arc for Amethyst? (Or at least the final phase of her big one.)
Lion is just great by the way. Whether he’s riding in a ferris wheel, helping bother seagulls, or simply dressed for a rave he’s fun to have around (even if it’s rather suspicious that he’d just so happen to be around now…).
Just remember: in the heat of battle, you’re not going to have a swimsuit.
