  9. "The Steven Universe Podcast" - Ian Jones-Quartey - "When we were writing that first season, we thought that Ocean Gem was going to be the last episode ever made because we didn't know there was gonna be more, we only has 26 episodes, so we were just gonna cram everything we can into these episodes, the reveal that the Corrupted Gems used to be Gems just like everybody else and that Gems were actually aliens, that was gonna be the end of the show."
