I thought of the same joke when picking a picture. Probably going to be a talky, thinky episode--a Bubble Episode if you will.

May as well show the previews for the next couple episodes.

Ah, so now Sardonyx already did have a late nght show, and one that's also a game show. And here I thought she'd have to set something up at the stage on the beach. Would probably be good to give her a live audience, though.

Hm, what I remember seeing right before Zuke deleted her twitter was her freaking out about how people were downloading the "leaked" episodes and watching/discussing/spoiling them early, not her reacting to shipping wars.

However I also saw /sug/ claim that it was all the fault of Jasper fans when it happened, too.

Zuke isn't commenting on why they deleted their twitter, but rumor sites have been claiming it was due to "fan harassment," but I don't know what evidence they're using to justify those claims.

She posted a couple of cute pro-Lapidot sketches and jokes, both Amedot shippers (who are mad because they don't want Lapidot to happen) and rabid Lapidot shippers (who are mad it's not canon already) got mad and called her "queerbaiting" for daring to dangle ship teases in front of them like that. Because it's not like the show doesn't already have Pearl, Ruby, and Sapphire as examples of hardcore canon lesbians or anything.

>243874
Jasper/Jaspis fans have no reason to get involved. They're already hated by the rest of fandom already for daring to like problematic things so them speaking up in any fashion no matter what they say would just paint an even bigger target on their backs.

But seriously, they're probably gonna be found by Homeworld and tell them about Steven being Rose Quartz, otherwise where is this story going next?

I'm kind of suprirsed we didn't see evidence of the CG having picked them up themselves . I's not like it'd be especially hard for them, Steven woulnd't want them trapped out there, and the other gems would probably feel better to avoid leaving tem an unkonw factor.

Also, that knife is the most adorable gem weapon, both for being a kife-in-the-eye joke and for being the most diminutive one we've seen yet. I'm not sure how it's particularly useful outside of getting the drop on soemone, but maybe that Ruby prefers sealth attacks to begin with.

For gems, it's effectively the same concept. Just means it's also specifically for taking out gem targets.
And I think the real reason they didn't go looking for the rubies was that they were just so concerned with getting Steven homen quickly after he apparnelty almost froze in space.

The Rubies seem like an odd choice for the last and biggest regret to show up given that they seem the least hurt of all of them, though I guess that just goes to show how feelings of guilt aren't always rational.

For someone who hasn't watched much, Steven freaking out at a bunch of chatacters being upset at things that only get explained in other episodes could seem pretty odd out of context., not that there was time to do much else.

It wasn’t regret about all the Rubies—just about the Ruby he pushed out into space (“Eyeball”, as seen in the OP pic) when he had no other choice. His feelings of guilt were centered around how he couldn't save Bismuth, Eyeball, and Jasper in much the same way that he saved Lapis and helped redeem Peridot. He doesn’t want to hurt others, even when they leave him no choice but to do so.

And of course all three of these failures stemmed from their personal relationships with his mother. Up until recently he's had no reason to think of her as anything besides a completely benevolent figure, but all these revelations that she was far more ambiguous coming so close to each other have awakened a fear that maybe she...and by extension himself...wasn't the fundamentally good person he thought she was.

Seems unlikely just because SU isn't often that understated about such things. Or are only space rocks allowed to be open about thier relationships? Iif it was the case, the operative word would be "were" rather than "are", given that they only meet briefly after years of separation.

Unrelated: The more of Mr. Smiley's stuff gets broken, the more excited I am at the idea of Peridot using space technology to make games and rides only for them to end up way too intense when she doesn't understand human safety requirements.

And that ws a cute moment with Onion there. Now he knows to be more careful!

Don't break shit, kids.

Also, Smiley and Frowny seemed like really good friends who had a falling out rather than lovers. I didn't get any romantic tension from them. I could be wrong though.

I can imagine that thing being somewhat common in some future where there are more gems not perpetually toiling for Homeworld and in contact with humans. Live long enough and the idea of dying to create some new lifeform, instead of inevitably through murder, suicide, or accident, probably sounds pretty interesting.

Pearl, specifically, I doubt would do anything like that in the lifespan of any human currently living.

Holy shit it's... Carl!

I was kind of hoping for something that advanced the plot a bit more, but finding out about Greg's family was nice. Maybe not surprising considering "Bismuth" was kind of separate from the show's storyline when it aired.

It's off next week, but there's a new one the week after that. After that though, is probably a Christmas break--CN almost never premieres new episode in December past the first week unless they're holiday episodes.

Someone accidentally posted all five episodes of the next bomb, which was meant start four weeks from today, on the website, in their entirety (and decent quality). So long as you have the channel on cable, you can watch them all for not--if not, wait a while for webrips.

Get them while the getting's... there.

Much of this is happening because clips are spread between dozen of sources (VOD, advertising, a Youtube account and website for every regional CN, the CN app) that have separate staff and have to work with a schedule that's constantly changing (in fact, multiple because every region has different air dates). Almost none of these leaks (to use the term as loosely as people are) happened the same way, though they did happen with other shows sometimes:
#Making a commercial from a clip about five episodes in the future (that clip of Peridot trying to give Lapis a gift, another of Peridot playing with her alien doll).
#A foreign version of CN showing clips about one and four episodes ahead of the current broadcast (CN UK posting the climaxes of "Super Watermelon Island" and "Barn Mates" on Youtube last February).
#People datamining the website for clips that are uploaded but not meant to be visible for a few more days (the Yellow Diamond screenshot that came a few days before "Message Received").
#Foreign broadcast beating domestic because they decided to air them as soon as they got the rights without caring/paying attention to practices on a financially separate institution that may not speak the same language ("Coach Steven" in Canada, "Barn Mates" through "Steven Floats" in France; it's remarkable that it doesn't happen more).
#Someone uploading episodes that come out early because the release date is wrong, either because the final TV schedule was reworked, the initial date was a placeholder someone forgot to correct in time, or just a typo (this stuff).

It's interesting how the moral high ground hasn't changed direction, but has gotten more even. It seemed like Rose thought of humans as people while Homeworld thought they were nothing. Turns out they both thought of humans as animals, Rose just thought a zoo wasn't a substitute for their natural environment.

Speaking of which, those quartz gems were definitely watching the humans sustain the population.

A CN rep said those episodes were released intentionally as part of the website/app's "See It First" promotion.

Even so, all of them being taken back down within twelve hours (and only one being put back up so far) suggests someone else at the network thought they shouldn't have been posted.

Also, while these new SU episodes were marked as "See It First", I will note there are other times where episodes go up there first without such a denotation and are taken down shortly thereafter--with Gumball alone it's happened with like five episodes already.

I'm okay with that because it finally feels like we're going somewhere with him, my problem with him in the previous episodes is that we never go anywhere besides "he sucks."

This is the big chance to redeem him, also I'm interested in how he relates to Steven here who is at a low point and is willing to sacrifice himself, but to save someone he'll fight....that said Lars is like, the one person who could fuck up Steven's desire to protect people with his selfish cowardice.

So Rose didn't know if her kid would be a boy or girl, so she made two different videos. But the right one ended up in a different place where it would be preserved and Lion could bring it to Steven more easily--that had to have happened after Steven was born. The only one besides Rose or Steven who could have put things in Lion... is Lion.

The episode makes a point that Rose didn't make complicate plans for Steven's life, yet Lion having all these things seems to just serve to make things more complicated and uncertain. Why not just give Greg the video and leave the sword in the armory where Pearl thought it would still be?

I don't think Lion is on some mission from Rose. I think he's acting on his own (albeit still in Steven's interests) and stole all that shit, possibly without even knowing Rose personally.

I wonder if the condition ends up being reversible via application of ordinary human medical science, applied as though Lars was simply in a period of extended stasis.

Got the artbook. It's really good.

It's amazing how much changed from the earliest draft of the pilot pitch to the series proper. Steven looked like a high school linebacker and was more like the Crystal Gems' intern who they'd just recently met. Sugar made them the family Steven grew up in to better fit the relationships she had in mind, but I think the more Sorcerer's Apprentice-esque scenario had legs.

They keep doing it because, apparently, the ratings have been better that way. Which makes sense, at least when it's practically a TV movie like Wanted--an hour of peak ratings counts as much as four quarter-hours that gets the same ratings, and they only have to promote one date.

Granted, there's more complicated things to consider (like premiers getting "spillover" to reruns directly before and after), and some of this is a bit more experimental than a sure thing, but the long-term rate episodes have come out at (~10 days/episode) hasn't really changed.

Except that is kind of true. The show tries to straddle the line between episodic and serial without becoming one or the other, which puts it in a weird situation where the overarching conflict of the show—Homeworld versus The Crystal Gems for the fate of Earth—often takes a backseat to slice-of-life content and expanded worldbuilding. Yes, Steven Universe lacks entire filler arcs like a shōnen anime would have (hi, Bleach), but it does have filler—“Rocknaldo”, for example, could be cut out of the show without creating any unsolvable snags in continuity or characterization.

Now that is a sentiment with which I can agree.

Some new episodes will be up on the website/on-demand/etc. by November 10. No word on TV premiers, but if you're on this board, I'd be surprised if that matters to you.

I would not be surprised in the least if CN pulls a Korra and relegates SU to online-only for the rest of the show's run. It already refuses to show SU reruns on the actual network, after all.

Surprised they had not earlier. SU was one of the shows that brought a lot more views on the app side of things outside of bombs

Got the new Steven Universe rpg for the PS4, Save The Light.

Seems pretty good so far.

As long as it's got a consistent schedule that's all I really care about.

Not sure if this is supposed to mean anything, or just weird for the sake of weird.

Also, Connie's mom apparently sold the movie rights to the cluster gems attacking the hospital, because she's on one of the movie boxes doing her best Herbert West impression.

Given how a lot of throwaway details earlier in the show were legitimate setups for later reveals, assume it means something unless and until proven otherwise.

That Sadie was pretending to be a brain-eating monster, then suddenly looked like Lars.

Could just be a joke about Lars being a zombie.

So when Steven eats flour by itself, does he eat it raw, or toast it in a pan first?

Given that White Diamond is so powerful compared to even other diamonds, and the only other gem known to be of the same color is Pearl, whose abilities include making chatbot-like hologram duplicates of herself, could it be that the reason White Diamond has been acting strange since at least the war against Earth is because what the other gems are talking to is really just an incredibly souped-up answering machine?

Wait, I'm dumb and forgot she's with Lapis.

I thought only one writer was trying to push Lapis / Peridot SUPER HARD by making so many barn lesbian episodes and got fired for it.

Apparently they were also behind the Pearl and big human girl that resembled Rose episode?

Huh, interesting. I didn't mind either way wether Peridot got into a romance, though I think it could have maybe been woven into Peridot trying to train Steven in gem stuff or something instead of mostly just townie stuff outside the major events.
