After "Steven has to rescue his dad" I was so relieved not to have "Connie has to rescue her mom". Their interaction was totally mundane and age-appropriate! A breath of fresh air.

(Dr. Maheswaran would take issue with your use of "Mrs". :) )

Eliza!Rose was pretty creepy and weird and I'm glad they didn't spend too much time with her. I could hope for a future episode where Steven realizes that he has this magical way to feel like he's with his mom, tries it, and then feels squicked that he tried it... but that might be more nuance than even this remarkably nuanced show can manage. Or it might start feeling like a pornography analogy that is really not appropriate for a children's show.

I was hoping there might be something like a Room-equivalent of the tape, a recorded message that is clearly a recorded message. Maybe there is and Steven just hasn't found it yet.
