I thought this episode was a bit wonky in the pacing of the action, but it provided a set-up where Garnet and Pearl were forced to talk to each other about Sardonyx, so I’m satisfied.
Given the intensity of the first two episodes this week, I thought this was going to be another heart-breaker. It wasn’t quite, but I still teared up a bit over Garnet telling Pearl she has to be her own Gem and be strong (it’s kind of a narrative cliche for sure, but I’m a real sucker for it).
Anyway, Peridot is still on the loose somewhere. I’m not sure what to think of Peridot as a villain as she seems amusingly non-threatening. Also, today I realized she looks like a Gem version of Mega Man. Modern Homeworld technology must be so dope.
Bonus SU goodness: a fan-made trailer of the show has been going around on tumblr. It is SO good (and I teared up over it as well. This show fucks me up so much).
