So do yourself a favor and keep your mouth shut. That will be all.
Steven and Greg are taken hostage by an Amethyst guard and are put into a room full of Quartz Gems. Amethyst has been captured as well. However, it was revealed to be a cruel humorous trick by the Quartzes that Amethyst planned to do.
Amethyst explains that all of the Quartz Gems here are from Earth made in the Prime and Beta Kindergarten. Amethyst also found out the rest of her name is "Facet 5 Cut 8XM". The Quartz Gems celebrate until Holly Blue Agate comes in and orders them harshly to their stations as Blue Diamond has returned. Amethyst tells them to run away.
Steven and Greg run off and enter Pink Diamond's throne room which contains an uncountable amount of bubbled Gemstones. Steven begins to shed tears, indicating Blue Diamond is near. Blue Diamond comes in with Blue Pearl and continues to grieve. Yellow Diamond comes in with Yellow Pearl shortly after, unbeknownst of Blue Diamond.
Yellow Diamond wants to bring Blue Diamond back to "reality", stop her from grieving, and destroy the Gemstones that share the same vein of Quartz Rose has who shattered Pink Diamond millennia ago. Blue Diamond wants to preserve the memory of Pink Diamond by keeping the bubbled Gemstones, her zoo, and the Earth. Yellow Diamond wants her to stop, however, and put the entire debacle behind her. It proves more difficult than it needs to be, so Yellow Diamond tells her Pearl to help sing a song to make Blue Diamond feel better.
Agate, Ruby, and Sapphire enters the room, and Agate greets Blue Diamond but quickly realizes Yellow Diamond is there as well. The Diamonds want a quick explanation for Agate's presence, so Agate explains that "your [Blue Diamond]" Sapphire has completed her special delivery. Blue Diamond has never asked a Sapphire to make a special delivery. Sapphire, however, rebuttals with her precognition of Blue Diamond's desire for more humans for the zoo, convincing herself to act accordingly. Blue Diamond admits it is true but knows there is not enough time to preserve all humans. Yellow Diamond asks Sapphire if the Cluster has formed yet, which it has not according to Sapphire, proving there is still time. Yellow Diamond dismisses the group and tends to Blue Diamond afterward.
Agate is relieved all went well and is also jubilant to see Yellow Diamond in person and see the zoo has not become a forgotten piece of Gem history, making it all worth it to her for how much time she has spent preserving such a remote location with Quartz Gems. Nothing could have spoiled her happiness until she finds out, just after saying so, the captives humans Steven and Greg are witnessed climbing into the Roaming Eye.
Agate blames the Quartzes for their incompetence and proceeds to capture the humans herself until she is stopped by Ruby and Sapphire fusing into Garnet and catching the whip. Pearl then cuts the whip, and Amethyst spins around Agate to tie her up. Garnet punches her with her bare hand and causes Agate to fall over and be laughed at by the Quartzes. Agate threatens to report everything to the Diamonds, but Pearl gives Agate a reality check on her own incompetence and bias using the Gem Hierarchy that led to the Crystal Gems' infiltration into the facility and the event that just transpired to be possible in the first place, so reporting them to the Diamonds would not be a wise move.
The Crystal Gems exit the zoo and return to Earth, and Steven is glad that he has his father back.
