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?
