Email read this morning indicates that work has blown up even more than it already had been, so, super quick. (Note to self: write down your thoughts about Moana sometime. Possibly also the Hamilton Mixtape.)

That was . . . good? Right?

Steven must have his flashbacks in song form, hah.

They were all so messed up and the Gems were so not understanding, all in very characteristic ways. (Pearl choosing not to try to poof Steven (eek!) because Rose really wanted it was a welcome beat, however, and goes a long way to showing how she could move on.) And look at how far they've come!

This reinforces my emphatic belief that we must NEVER have Rose come back. Ever ever.

My roommate and I spent ages dissecting this episode this morning! Some small-detail notes:

- Sour Cream looks about 6 or 7 in that picture with Vidalia and Yellowtail, right? Definitely past toddler age, anyway. Which means that, timeline-wise, there's at least 5 or 6 years between Greg the Babysitter (when Rose first gets the idea of having a kid) and when Steven is actually born, and also that the Cool Kids (&Lars&Sadie?) are probably around 20 if Steven is 14 now
- I thiiink Amethyst is the only one of the gems who has a different outfit in these flashbacks than she did at the beginning of the show (though I didn't look in too much detail at Garnet's); her shoulder straps are symmetrical, which might tie into this being her outfit choice before she started wanting to annoy Pearl so much?
- Garnet seeing in future vision that Steven will need to shave SOMEDAY first of all implies that he's not going to stay stuck at his current physical age forever, and second of all has made me suddenly convinced that he's going to actually age up into puberty before the show ends (even if it's in the very last episode) just so they can Chekhov's Razor that razor

I also love how Garnet was both more talkative than she was at the beginning of the show, even more certain of herself than she comes off as at the beginning of the show, and so much more wrong. Garnet! I think we all tend to focus less on Garnet's changes than we do those of the other gems, but she's grown as much as any of them.
