My gosh. That was like being hit by a train.
I really admire what they're doing with Steven's emotional breakdown. All the people he's turning to are falling him and he's seeing them for who they are. His dad is a lovely guy, but he's a flaky hippy with vague platitudes. Connie is too far away and is whole-human. The Crystal Gems have role-swapped and are no longer carers: they're children trying to help with something they don't get.
My only surprise is that Steven can now heal what was meant to be the ultimate damage you could do to a gem. He can now give and take life. How on Earth are they going to help him?
