Main article: Lapis Lazuli

Lapis trapped within a mirror.

Lapis Lazuli is a Lapis Lazuli-type Gem created for Blue Diamond on Homeworld thousands of years before the Gem War. She was imprisoned in a mirror, later being freed and becoming a Crystal Gem


Same Old World 150.png

Lapis visited Earth during the era of its Gem colonization and was caught in the midst of the Rebellion, the preceding event to the Gem War. While trying to escape the planet, she was poofed by Bismuth.[1] Homeworld's forces recovered her gemstone but believed her to be a Crystal Gem and an enemy of Homeworld, resulting in her incarceration in a magical mirror. Homeworld intended to question her for information about the Rebels and Rose Quartz, but Lapis was unable to answer. The Homeworld Gems eventually fled the planet having lost the war over Earth to the Crystal Gems. Lapis' mirror was left at the Galaxy Warp, trampled by retreating Gems and cracked. Thousands of years on, the mirror is recovered by Pearl and stored inside her gemstone.

Season 1

"Mirror Gem"

Did you even wonder who I used to be?!

—"Mirror Gem"
Mirror Gem 187.png

The mirror is handed over to Steven by Pearl so he can learn about Gem culture. When Pearl is not able to activate it, she assumes that it is broken. However, when away from Pearl, Lapis Lazuli reveals herself to Steven by talking to him through the mirror's recordings. Lapis is then able to communicate with Steven, persuading him to free her. Steven releases her physical form and individual consciousness by removing the gemstone from the back, shattering the mirror. When discovered by the Crystal Gems, she asks Steven to return "home" with her, to which he is not able to respond. Disappointed by his apparent rejection, she escapes into the ocean before she can be recaptured.

"Ocean Gem"

Ocean Gem 146.png

Lapis draws a section of the Atlantic Ocean[2] into a spire in an attempt to reach all the way to Homeworld. She fights the Crystal Gems from atop the spire by creating Water Clones to attack them. However, Steven manages to persuade her to talk and uses his saliva to heal her cracked gem. Thanking Steven, she forms wings of water and flies off into space, to return to Homeworld.

"The Message"

The Message 240.png

Lapis sends a video message via the Wailing Stone warning Steven that Peridot is coming to Earth with another Gem. Lapis urges Steven and the Crystal Gems not to put up a fight, as Gem technology has advanced since she has last been to the Homeworld, and a fight will only lead to devastation.

"Political Power"

Garnet refers to Lapis's message, specifically the part where she mentions Peridot will have backup. Amethyst brushes this off, asking what Lapis knows.

"The Return"

The Return 257.png

Lapis is brought to Earth by Peridot and Jasper aboard the Gem Warship against her will. She is sent to Earth with Peridot as an informant, and it is seen that she has omitted facts from the crew for Steven's sake. Once Jasper takes out the Gem Destabilizer, Lapis stays frozen in place as Jasper poofs Garnet, beats Pearl and Amethyst, and knocks out Steven.

"Jail Break"

Lapis is imprisoned in a ship jail cell after Jasper discovered she hid information. When Steven tries to free her, she stops him, believing it is for the best that they do not try to escape. She remains in her cell, though Steven tells her he'll come back for her.

Jail Break 463.png

After the ship is destroyed, Lapis attempts to flee but is caught by Jasper who asks Lapis to fuse with her, saying that the Crystal Gems are traitors and used her. After considering the offer, she seemingly agrees, however after fusing, she reveals that she fused with Jasper into Malachite so she could trap both of them at the bottom of the sea.

Season 2

"Full Disclosure"

While singing "Full Disclosure", Steven flashes back to several scenes from the previous episodes. Lapis is seen witnessing Jasper pull out the destabilizer, refusing Steven's offer of escape, being grabbed by Jasper, and trapping Jasper in the ocean as Malachite.

After he makes up with Connie, Steven tells her about how Lapis and Jasper are trapped in the ocean.

"Love Letters"

Garnet mentions that she has been searching the ocean floor for Lapis and Jasper, but thus far has not found any trace of them.

"Chille Tid"


Lapis is shown to be able to communicate with Steven through his dreams. Lapis states that she does not want Steven and the other Crystal Gems to find her because she is committed wholeheartedly to staying fused as Malachite in order to prevent Jasper from escaping or gaining control of Malachite (and from hurting Steven).

"Cry for Help"

In her message to Homeworld, Peridot explains that her escort (Jasper) and her informant (Lapis) are gone.

"Catch and Release"

Peridot tries to get Steven to heal the Galaxy Warp, explaining that she knows he healed Lapis's Gem.

Season 3

"Super Watermelon Island"

Super Watermelon Island 212.png

The civilization of Watermelon Stevens on Mask Island attempt to sacrifice one of their number to Malachite in an effort to stop the earthquakes that troubled the island. Thanks to Steven's vision of the event, the Crystal Gems track her down, and fuse into Alexandrite to fight her. Malachite is defeated and forcibly defused by the Gems, with aid of the Watermelon Stevens. During the final moments of the fight, a Cluster-related earthquake took place, but the unconscious Lapis is caught by Amethyst.

"Gem Drill"

Lapis is carried by Garnet, unconscious, to the barn, arriving from Mask Island.

"Same Old World"

She finally awakens and decides to fly back to Homeworld. However, she later returns to the barn after realizing she would not be able to go back to Homeworld for her actions towards Jasper. Steven finds her on top of the silo and decides to help her find a home somewhere on Earth. Together they visit the countryside, Empire City, and Jersey.

Memory Projection.gif

While enjoying their flight, Lapis eventually sights the Galaxy Warp, awakening tragic memories in her, causing her to nearly drop Steven before she comes to her senses. She uses her memory projecting abilities to show Steven the story of how she got stuck on Earth. That being that she was only meant to visit for a short time, but she got caught in the middle of war, and is poofed by Bismuth.[1]

After finishing her story, she insists they leave the area right away. While flying back to the barn, Lapis says that she thought things had changed, but she was wrong. In response, Steven tells her that, on Earth, things change all the time and that it is not the same world that trapped her. Landing back at the barn, Steven continues, saying that this time she has the choice to stay on the planet or not and Lapis says she wants to stay so she can see more. After making her decision, Peridot suddenly joins their conversation, to Lapis' surprise and dismay. Peridot explains that she is now living on Earth and in the barn, but Lapis responds in denial, claiming that it is her new home, not Peridot's.

"Barn Mates"

Steven and Peridot try to make a compromise with Lapis so Peridot and Lapis can both live together on the barn. However, Lapis turns down every compromise and reveals that she is not listening because she does not like Peridot. Lapis says that Peridot is the reason why she is back on Earth in the first place. Lapis flies on top of the nearby silo and relaxes but is woken up by a screaming Peridot yelling her name. Lapis becomes irritated but only flies down when she hears Steven calling her name. Lapis reads the apology letter written by Peridot outloud and is not thankful of the compliments she receives from her.

Barn Mates 126.png

Later, Lapis is called back down where Steven and Peridot show her the hole from the drill now filled with water with the intention of giving Lapis her own pool. Lapis explains that she is taking a break from water because she has been in the ocean for such a long time and described it as being her "tomb", though Lapis does thank them for their generosity.

Finally, Peridot gives Lapis her tape recorder and she shows her how it works. Lapis turns it on and states that she does not want Peridot's "garbage" and crushes it with her hand and drops it on ground. Peridot becomes frustrated and asks Lapis what she wants to make them be on good terms. Lapis becomes frustrated as well and yells to Peridot that she wants her to leave. Peridot complies and walks away which makes Steven disappointed. Lapis asks Steven why he trusts Peridot and Steven explains that she has truly changed from before.

Barn Mates 231.png

Peridot comes running back and passes the two, into the barn. The Homeworld tracking vessel, the Roaming Eye, follows Peridot, Lapis and Steven run into the barn. Soon, they run back out, and Lapis sees how scared Peridot is. Lapis forms a water hand and makes the Roaming Eye crash into the ground and asks if Peridot is okay, blushing when Peridot responds with a big smile.

"Hit the Diamond"

While the Crystal Gems are in the barn, Lapis listens to Peridot when she explains why the Ruby soldiers are supposedly after her. When the decision is made to play baseball with the Rubies, Lapis appears nonchalant about it; she laughs to herself and says "this plan sucks" but decides to play.

Hit the Diamond HD 178.png

The Crystal Gems, except Peridot, all play baseball and disguise themselves as humans. Lapis's human name is Bob, a reference to "Ocean Gem" when Lapis tells Steven her name is Lapis, not Bob. Throughout the game, Lapis remains unenthusiastic. When a ball flies over her head, she raises her arm after it is well behind her. When Lapis is up at bat, she does not swing. Instead, she holds out her bat, and the ball lightly bounces off of it. Lapis then walks to first base. At the very end of the game, Lapis is on second base, and she walks to home plate when Sapphire gets a home-run. Lapis smiles and gives Ruby a high five.

Lapis appears undisturbed when Ruby and Sapphire accidentally fuse, and she doesn't emote much as the Rubies fuse and threaten the Crystal Gems. She watches as the Rubies, having been tricked by Steven, leave for Neptune.

"Steven Floats"

Seeing Steven floating in the sky, Amethyst thinks she remembers him having that power. However, she quickly realizes she's thinking of Lapis.

"Alone at Sea"

Steven takes Lapis to a dock to go on a boating trip. Lapis formally meets Greg for the first time, and after Steven convinces her, Lapis agrees to the trip. Throughout the trip, Lapis seems to still be bothered by the fact that that she was underwater as Malachite for so long.

Alone at Sea 149.png

When Greg is fishing, Lapis uses her hydrokinesis to take out a large sphere of the ocean water, but Greg says he'd rather fish normally, and teaches Lapis how to fish. Suddenly, something strong pulls on the string and Lapis, reels her in but before the creature could surface the pole snaps. After the ship's engine breaks from an unknown source, Lapis claims that the trip going bad is her fault and not Steven's. Lapis reveals that she misses Jasper after being fused with her for all that time, and that she feels like a bad person.

Alone at Sea 180.png

Suddenly, Jasper climbs the boat's anchor chain and gets onto the ship's deck, surprising Lapis. When Jasper throws Steven out of the way, Lapis runs to his aid, but Jasper pulls her back and starts begging to fuse with her again. Lapis asks why she would want to do that, and tells Jasper that she hated her and used fusion to take her anger out on her. Lapis doesn't listen to Jasper's claims of changing and rejects the offer to fuse once more. Jasper then charges at Steven with the plan to attack and shatter him because she believes that he is the reason Lapis doesn't want to fuse.

In reaction to this, Lapis manifests a water fist that sends Jasper flying high in the air and far, far away into the ocean, as well as punches a hole in the ship thus sinking it. She flies off of the boat carrying Greg and Steven.


Beta 027.png

Lapis has acclimated to living at the barn. Although she is still dour to an extent, she has helped renovate the barn and become comfortable living with Peridot, watching Camp Pining Hearts together, and creating pieces of art they call "meepmorps", hers being a baseball bat from when she played baseball, a leaf Steven gave her, and a TV on a stand with two mirrors sticking out of it, looping a scene from Camp Pining Hearts.


Steven, Peridot, and Amethyst return to the barn to find that the Rubies have returned, and Lapis is holding them all captive with her hydrokinesis.

"Back to the Moon"

Back to the Moon 003.png

Lapis releases each Ruby one by one, as Steven tries to question each about their return. She's annoyed when Amethyst shapeshifts into Jasper to trick the Rubies, rolling her eyes. She and Peridot stay behind on Earth while the others travel to the moon's Diamond base.

Season 4

"Kindergarten Kid"

Lapis reading.gif

Lapis can be seen sitting inside the Barn, reading a book titled Pretty Hairstylist. She notices Peridot's bubble containing the Tongue Monster's gemstone materialise in mid-air above her, but it doesn't appear to concern her.

"Gem Harvest"

Steven visits Lapis and Peridot at the barn for a sleepover, discovering that the two had started a farm at the barn, thinking they'd grow sentient vegetables. She's disappointed to discover that's not how crops work, so Steven ends up manipulating a pumpkin to grow sentient to keep them company. However, the pumpkin recognizes Steven as its creator and father, until Steven cuts another pumpkin, at which point she becomes more comfortable with Lapis.

However, their joy is interrupted by a plane landing at the barn. They find a stranger that starts lecturing the Gems, until Lapis subdues him with her hydrokinesis. Eventually its discovered that the stranger is Steven's uncle, Andy, who's fairly unwelcome of the Gems as he thinks they're hippies living in his barn.

Gem Harvest 197.png

To convince Andy otherwise, the Gems decide to host a dinner, where Lapis helps by harvesting the crops with her flying powers. Later, she joins Garnet, Peridot and Pearl on the pursuit for things that can make Andy feel more comfortable, by uniting several human celebrations together.

At dinner, Lapis eats with her family and discusses the events of the day, arguing and even making a self-deprecating joke about her past. When Andy decides to leave due to feeling unwelcome, Lapis helps Steven catch up to him using her flight.

"Adventures in Light Distortion"

Lapis agrees to stay on Earth with Peridot to protect Beach City while the Gems go to space to retrieve Greg.

"The New Crystal Gems"

Lapis appears in Connie's flashback, where she is taken to the Beach House by Peridot. Peridot shows Lapis the bathroom she once temporarily stayed in, and even tries to flush herself down the toilet like she did long before. Peridot is annoyed when Connie busts into the room with her sword drawn, asking if she knocks.

The New Crystal Gems 074.png

Peridot introduces Connie to Lapis as Steven's third best friend after them. Connie asks Lapis if she remembers her as the one she almost drowned in "Ocean Gem", to which she responds that she almost drowned a lot of people. Peridot tells Connie that Garnet appointed herself and Lapis with protecting Beach City while the Gems go into space. Lapis assures Connie that they didn't need her help but Peridot, thinking it over, realizes that they do need Connie's help, and that they should all form a team consisting of themselves acting as other Crystal Gem members to get the job done.

The New Crystal Gems 087.png

Lapis takes on the role of Amethyst, Peridot takes on Garnet's role (with Lapis remarking that she was as bossy like her), and gives Pumpkin the role of Pearl. While searching on the beach, Connie notices Buck Dewey's call for help and she, Lapis, and Peridot arrive at Greg's car wash. To help clean Bill Dewey's van, Peridot lifts the truck in the air with her metal powers and Lapis washes it down quickly.

When many more Beach City citizens show up the next day at the car wash, Peridot believes that they all came to witness "the Garnet", and levitates Jenny Pizza's Car in the air. As Lapis rinses the car off, Peridot tells her that her performance as Amethyst is lacking, and asks her to make some jokes. They grow increasingly frustrated with their allotted roles and start arguing; Lapis now wanting to be Garnet and insisting that Peridot makes a much better Pearl. This makes them lose concentration and smash Yellowtail's car into the building's sign.

Sometime later, when Connie makes another speech, which this time unites the team, Peridot and the group creates a new and improved sign for Greg's car wash. The team strikes a victory pose.

"Room for Ruby"

Room for Ruby (79).png

Steven takes Navy to the barn to meet Peridot, Lapis, and Pumpkin. While Peridot is eager to welcome Navy as a new resident of the barn, Lapis is not quite so keen on the idea, and even gets upset at Navy after she seems to be used to her new surroundings already. Later, it is discovered that the reason behind this is because of Lapis's jealousy towards Navy. She says that it had taken so long for her to just to get used to Earth, and Navy embraced it all in the span of a day. She wonders if her inability to adapt means that something must be wrong with her.

Navy expresses that she misses her squad's Roaming Eye, so Steven reveals that it's been at the barn the whole time. Overjoyed, the three go on a ride with her. After tricking Steven into hitting a button that opens the hatch, Navy reveals that her desire to be on Earth was just an act so she could get her ship back. Lapis becomes so outraged that she calls Navy a "backstabbing little creep", and she summons all her strength to climb over Steven and back into the ship, but Navy promptly shakes the group off of the Roaming Eye and into the ocean below.

Room for Ruby (312).png

Steven and friends resurface, none the worse for wear. As Navy escapes into space, Lapis breaks into a fit of laughter, satisfied that at least she was right to be suspicious of Navy all along as nobody could be that well-adjusted. They return to the shore and reunite with Garnet.

Season 5

"Raising the Barn"

Peridot video calls Steven with Lapis and Pumpkin. Steven talks to them about how Beach City citizens were being abducted and how he had to turn himself in to protect them. He explains he was then put on trial before Blue and Yellow Diamond. The second he mentions the trial, Lapis starts to panic and informs Peridot that they need to leave the Earth immediately, and abruptly hangs up on Steven.

Steven makes it to the barn to find Peridot trying (and failing) to reason with Lapis, coming up with several reasons why they shouldn't leave Earth. Lapis keeps finding a solution to all of her objections. It is later revealed that Lapis is planning to leave Earth with Peridot and Pumpkin so she could go to another planet, worried that the Diamonds are going to start another war against Earth, which she does not want to be a part of.

Raising the Barn 102.png

Lapis uses the water from the smaller than average lake to lift the barn. She and Peridot begin to say goodbye to Steven, but they're cut off when Peridot realizes that Pumpkin has run away. Lapis takes to the skies to look for her, while Steven and Peridot search on the ground. When Peridot eventually finds her hiding in the crops, Lapis once again lifts the barn.

Albeit reluctant, Peridot tells Lapis that she and Pumpkin don't want to leave Earth, which surprises Lapis. She then asks Peridot why she's telling her this now but not earlier, and why she lied to her. Peridot states that she doesn't want to upset her and explains that if something happens on Earth, she wants to be there when it does. She says that if the Diamonds do try to attack the Earth, that they should stay and fight to protect it, instead of running off with what they can carry on their backs, because she knows they'll win together. As Peridot attempts to reason with Lapis one last time, she lets her know that Earth is their home now, then extends her hand to her, and asks "isn’t it worth fighting for?".

Lapis leaves Earth.gif

Unfortunately, this doesn't work, as Lapis proceeds to leave, by using her powers, raising the barn and taking flight. Lapis then takes one final look at the Earth and Peridot, Pumpkin and Steven, and as she fights back the tears in her eyes, she flies off with the barn into space.

"Can't Go Back"

Ronaldo discovers Lapis Lazuli has brought the barn to the moon. Steven is confused and travels with Lion to the moon base. He uses his bubble to reach the barn, only to find it is deserted.

He returns to the moon base and finds Lapis using an Observation Orb to make sure all of her friends on Earth are safe. Lapis explains that she traveled to the edge of the galaxy, but felt an incredibly overwhelming sense of loneliness, and decided to return to the moon.


Lapis says she can't go back to Earth because of how she left, afraid of what Peridot and the others would say and that something bad may happen. She sings "That Distant Shore", exemplifying her desire to be back on Earth and her fear that she may live through another war. She watches as Peridot trains with the Crystal Gems, and as they sit, she lets her own shadow sit with them.

After singing, Lapis and Steven lean against the wall as the orb projects a sunset over the ocean. She laments that she destroyed her home because she was afraid the Diamond would do it. She's afraid to go back because things would be different, but Steven tells her that that's okay. Lapis decides that it may be okay to go back to Earth.


Steven awakes from a dream and tells Lapis he it was about the Diamonds. Lapis becomes afraid that this means that the Diamonds are coming to Earth, and Steven is too distraught to calm her down. Lapis runs from the moon base, exclaiming that she can't go through her past again. When Steven asks what she's doing, Lapis explains that she's leaving and that he should be used to that by now. She flies from the moon base, leaving Steven behind.


As Steven sings "Let's Only Think About Love", he mentions not thinking about friends they wish they could invite. The camera then pans up to the moon, showing Lapis sitting on top of the barn.

Reunited (584).png

Lapis makes her return after Garnet's wedding, assisting in the fight against Blue Diamond. She appears while Garnet was distracting Blue Diamond, and drops the barn on Blue Diamond. Lapis then reunites with Steven and Peridot and swears her allegiance to the Crystal Gems. When Blue uses her pathokinesis, Lapis is almost completely unaffected by it, simply saying "I've felt worse."

Reunited (832).png

Lapis manages to hold Blue Diamond back using chains of water, and Steven protects her and the rest of the combatants with his shield. While Peridot is thrown into Blue Diamond's face, Lapis uses her hydrokinesis to launch the rest of the Crystal Gems at Blue, each one dealing a blow to her and eventually knocking her over. Lapis defends Steven after he's knocked out by Yellow Diamond, though she is eventually poofed.

"Legs From Here to Homeworld"

Bismuth stays behind on Earth to watch over Lapis and Peridot's gemstones, while Steven, Connie, and the Gems accompany Blue and Yellow Diamond to Homeworld.

Between "Escapism" and "Change Your Mind"

After Bismuth receives Steven's message for backup, Lapis, alongside Peridot, finally reform. They were informed of the situation and later help Bismuth repair Blue and Yellow Diamond's destroyed arm ships. Afterwards, they piloted their ships to Homeworld to help the rest of the Crystal Gems.

"Change Your Mind"

Change Your Mind 341.png

Lapis arrives on Homeworld with Bismuth and Peridot flying Blue Diamond's arm ship. After they punch White Diamond's ship, they reunite with Steven and stand with him and Yellow and Blue attempt to talk to White. She's shocked to see White use her powers to control Yellow and Blue Diamond. White then uses her new control over the Diamond Mech to drop the Crystal Gems from the hands.

Lapis manages to save herself and Bismuth using her water wings. She catches up with Steven, Amethyst, and Pearl on the ground, witnessing Steven begin to fuse with Ruby and Sapphire's Gemstones, but they're cut off by White Diamond attempting to crush them with the foot of the Diamond Mech. However, Sunstone saves the Gems by pushing the foot away.

Change Your Mind 555.png

After Sunstone fails to scale the mech, Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Steven decide to form Obsidian, who Lapis is excited to see. Lapis and Bismuth take to the skies after them to draw fire away from their ascent. White Diamond manages to knock Lapis into a building, causing her to drop Bismuth.

Lapis, Peridot, and Bismuth burst into the ship expecting a fight, but they find that the situation has calmed and White Diamond has released her hold on the Gems. She joins up with the Crystal Gems to celebrate their victory, returning to Earth on the Diamond Mech.

Change Your Mind 1006.png

Lapis helps gather the bubbled Corrupted Gems in The Burning Room, bringing them to Rose's Fountain so they can be healed. She's later seen on the Beach with everyone else when she lying down on top of the radio.

Steven Universe: The Movie

Two years after "Change Your Mind", Lapis is seen helping construct Little Homeworld with Bismuth and Peridot. She flies off, excited by the prospect of completing construction. As Amethyst continues to sing "Happily Ever After", Lapis is depicted as a member of her family.

SU Movie 580.png

Steven seeks out Bismuth, Lapis, and Peridot to help him figure out what's wrong with the Crystal Gems. The three are surprised by Spinel's quick change in heart, with Lapis joking she's still on the fence about whether or not she wants to kill Steven. Lapis says that since Steven has healing powers, he might be able to fix the Gems, but he can't because he doesn't have his powers.

As Bismuth begins to sing "Who We Are", she pulls Lapis and Peridot into a hug. They also pose with her. When this fails to lift Steven's spirits, they follow him down the elevator. Bismuth continues the song as she fills the star mold around the Warp Pad installed earlier, Lapis and Peridot joining in to sing. The enthusiasm of the three and Spinel's idea reignites Steven's desire to help and he joins with them to finish the song.

Lapis helps brainstorm ideas to help Ruby and Sapphire fuse again, asking what they have that's dangerous around. When the giant saw running wild causes a pot to roll towards the Heaven and Earth Beetle, Lapis swoops in to save the two of them. Steven leaves Bismuth, Lapis, and Peridot at Little Homeworld while he goes to look for Amethyst.

SU Movie 989.png

Steven, Amethyst, and Spinel arrive at the injector to find Bismuth, Peridot, and Lapis surveying it. She lands panicked as Steven attempts to lift the injector. When Steven asks if Lapis and Peridot tried to lift it with their powers, Lapis shouts, "You think we didn't try that?", and Peridot explains that disturbing the injector accelerates the flow of the poison.

Lapis, Bismuth, and Peridot are worried about the poison's readings when Steven returns with Spinel, who know remembers her past. She's relieved as the injector is lifted, high-fiving Bismuth. However, after a paranoid Spinel reinserts the injector, Lapis becomes separated from the Gems. They reunite as Steven tells them to rescue people in Beach City as he confronts Spinel.

Peridot and Lapis are performing tricks for the rescued humans at Little Homeworld when Steven arrives, rushing up to him to sing a line of "Finale".

Steven Universe Future


Bluebird 006.png

Lapis is seen in Steven's commercial for Little Homeschool sculpting a statue.

"Why So Blue?"

Lapis and Steven warp to an unnamed planet following rumors that two gems are still terraforming planets. They eventually come across Mean Lapis and Nice Lapis, who continue to justify their terrraforming as their purpose and enjoyment. Lapis and Steven attempt to persuade the two Lapis Lazulis to stop by adopting new hobbies, which leads Lapis to sing "Shining Through".

Why So Blue 220.png

The two Lapis Lazulis mock and ridicule Steven and Lapis and then resume terraforming. Lapis then confronts them and they engage on a hydrokinetic battle. The Lapis Lazulis have Lapis pinned, but Lapis then summons a huge tidal wave to knock them out of the air and form a water giant version of herself. As Lapis is about to deliver the final blow, she notices Steven's disappointed expression and ends the fight.

Why So Blue 240.png

The Lapis Lazulis are complicit with Lapis' demands to stop terraforming and leave the planet, citing their admiration of Lapis' strength. Lapis becomes frustrated, stating that giving into her anger was weakness, and storms off. Lapis and Steven warp back to Little Homeworld, where she sadly expresses that the other two remind her of herself. Steven comforts her by stating that she should give herself more credit on how far she has come. Nice Lapis then warps in asking if she is in the right place for Little Homeschool, at which Lapis welcomes her.

"Growing Pains"

When Steven is asked about any traumatic events in his childhood, one of the moments he flashes back to is Lapis imprisoning herself and Jasper under the ocean as Malachite.

"I Am My Monster"

I Am My Monster 009.png

From Little Homeworld, Lapis notices a giant monster in front of the Crystal Temple. She warps in with Bismuth and Peridot to find the rest of the Gems attempting to calm the monster. When Lapis asks where Steven is, Garnet reveals that the monster is Steven, much to Lapis's shock.

Following Garnet's instructions, Lapis traps Steven in the ocean after Bismuth and Peridot lure him towards it, explaining that she can't hold him forever. While the Crystal Gems try to figure out what to do, Spinel and the Diamonds arrive to bring Steven the sandal he left on Homeworld.

After the Diamonds fail to help Steven, Lapis begins to lose her grip on Steven. He then releases a huge roar, which knocks Lapis and everyone else back. She's fearful, but she listens as Connie explains that they all need to be there for Steven.

I Am My Monster 169.png

Using her powers, Lapis pushes Steven back into the ocean, giving the rest of his family enough time to run up to him. After Garnet hugs Steven (easier due to Yellow Diamond enhancing her size), Lapis is the first to join in, asking if he's in there. When Steven wakes up after he reverts to his regular self, Lapis and the rest of his family are there smiling at him.

"The Future"

Several months later, Lapis is angry when she learns that Steven plans to leave Beach City to travel the country. She tells him that no matter how hard he tries, he won't be able to run away from himself, which is something she knows firsthand.

The Future 063.png

After giving Peridot her gift, Steven presents Lapis with hers: an art kit. She's shocked by the complexity and touched by the gift, stating she loves it. As Steven gives Bismuth her gift, Lapis joins, stating she's going to use her tears to make a watercolor painting of him. They hug each other, and Steven exclaims that he loves them. The three all respond by saying they love him too.
