I think this is ep 16, not 15, at least according to the wiki.

And now that I've watched it (hooray, I'm finally caught up and can actually comment on your posts now!): yay Connie indeed. :) I am very much enjoying Steven and Connie's transition into outspoken adolescence. It is really hard to be poor parentified Steven. "I need to rescue my dad" is a cool trope inversion right up until you realize no child should ever have to say that.

On the other hand, Connie summarizing Steven's role as "you all have to do the right thing because you love me" is a painfully accurate portrayal of one aspect of parenthood.

Lapis remains my faaaaavorite. (That awkward moment over Thanksgiving dinner where she tells the joke that only she is oppressed enough to tell, and no one else but Peridot is allowed to laugh at it: PRICELESS.) I sometimes have a little trouble suspending disbelief for Lapis and Peridot as The Odd Gem Couple but I think that's because we never really saw their transition from "ugh, I'm supposed to share the barn with her" to "this is our meep morp installation".
