IMO the ending of Keystone Motel made it clear that Ruby, Sapphire and Garnet all want to forgive Pearl eventually, but it was a serious betrayal, the wound is still fresh. They're just not ready to forgive her yet, and that's okay.
Guys, fusion is like, the highest level of trust and intimacy. It's everything that makes Garnet, Garnet. Pearl not only abused that trust for her own selfish reasons, but she also wasted time they could've spent tracking Peridot and sent that rescue request signal to Homeworld TWICE. If they didn't get it the first time, they certainly did now.
Garnet does need to put things right with Pearl, but not necessarily because Pearl deserves it. They will, in the near future, need to fight together again. Pearl needs to earn Garnet's forgiveness, but Garnet kinda needs to let Pearl try to do that.
EDIT: For what it's worth, I said that before I had a chance to watch "Friend Ship".
Garnet's not being mean, she trying to teach Pearl that there are Conquences to your actions. Pearl deserves to be punished for using her in that way, but by proving herself she can earn the Trust back. There's nothing mean about it.

No offence, but I really don't think it was a lesson. Besides Pearl already learned her lesson. I think Garnet just didn't want to forgive Pearl and didn't want to drop the subject. She was mainly mad about Pearl lying, I'm sure any kind of lie is forgivable. In my opinion, being unforgiving is what I think is mean. Just my opinion. Friends can't stay mad at each other forever.
