  • 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?

    • Yeah, it is pretty obvious that while Greg is a good emotional support type dad he is not much on providing structure, direction and correction. Both of my kids are adults and finding the right balance of all those things was tricky and ever-shifting. What worked with one would blow up in my face with the other. The Crystal Gems have tried but they never really knew what they were doing. I think Jasper actually gave Steven more of what he needed to cope with current events than anyone else. It is not because she somehow gained wisdom the others did not have, it is just that her way of dealing with her frustrations is what Steven needed. Unfortunately Jasper also had no understanding of balance and when enough is enough.

      I don't think Steven alone can heal shattered gems, it takes the input of all four diamonds to fix one. Ironically it takes all four diamonds to successfully obliterate them. Remember that the diamond attack to end the war was supposed to be an obliteration attack. Corruption was an unintended consequence of the lack of PD's participation in the attack.

    • I have to wonder if Garnet foresaw what was going to happen in Fragments. Like, maybe she saw some futures where Steven shattered various different Gems and she was trying to figure out who was going to get shattered, by the time she arrived at the correct timeline Steven already did the deed. Garnet certainly didn't seem surprised when he came home, perhaps she's not even surprised that Jasper's about to exit the bathroom.

      Perfect explaination of the situation. Wow. SU is really getting heavy.

      Quite a scene watching Greg transform from caring father to a wretched little parrot who offers nothing new or helpful in a blink of an eye. Gotta credit the animators and writers for that stellar moment.
