Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 170: Dewey Wins and Gemcation

GC13 and Sophia discuss the two episodes that have most recently reached television: the misleadingly named (or completely accurately named if you get the historical reference) Dewey Wins and the normally named Gemcation.

How do you feel about Steven’s inability to tell that he’s upsetting Connie? How do you feel about his martyr complex? How tough should Gems be compared to humans?

And the big question: was Pearl really being prevented from speaking in Gemcation, or was she just having a hard time bringing herself to speak?

    In regards to Connie being able to block Topaz:
    It could just be that Steven Universe is in some kind of Dragon Ball logic of physical strength in that any being can become as strong as any other being. Like, maybe any other human can just train and become as strong as a Gem with practice, but nobody really has that need for it like Connie does in that she is directly involved with Gem conflicts and any given Beach City citizen has probably never known combat (aside from Sadie that one time?).

      I wouldn’t mind there being some higher intent about human strength being showcased in Island Adventure and I Am My Mom, but I’m not holding my breath. Rose didn’t like humanity because they had untapped potential, she liked them because they were born free.
