Steven Universe S04E04, "Mindful Education"

FUSION SONG WITH GARNET!

Also didactic but important messages about emotional health and honesty.

I was expecting those Bismuth-Garnet-Eyeball!Ruby butterflies to coalesce into Rose, but it was still a jolt--and I love the ambiguity there, fear of living up to her, fear of living down to her, guilt for "causing" her non-existence?

And apparently they didn't try to get the other Rubies, after all.

I love Garnet so, so much. That sign!

Hugs for everyone. That was so great.

yay yes! I really loved them fusing into Rose as a sign that Rose's image is no longer the uncomplicated perfect beautiful loving mom Steven always sees in the portrait in the house - that she's become a much more ambiguous figure as he's grown up. And he's trying to weigh his own moral truths against some of Rose's actions and finding that he doesn't feel/think the same way as her, and doesn't agree with all her choices, and of COURSE that would have such a huge weight for him.

Also Garnet forever and Stevonnie SINGING!!! I also loved seeing how easily Steven and Connie can now fuse into Stevonnie. BABIES!
