It’s fine! I’m fine, I’m fine, really it’s fine…
Well? It’s us!
After all that Steven’s done trying to separate himself from his mother’s identity, he’s faced with the possibility that he might still end up repeating her mistakes.
This episode is painfully awkward and also weirdly relatable and I am here for it.
The show begins its musings on The Future, and Steven makes a mess of things (both recurring features of this season).
We get our first glimpse of the new normal for Steven Universe…and our first hints of the conflict to come in his little happily ever after.
I want everything to stay exactly like this and never change.
This isn’t normal.
I’d rather be free
As the Diamonds gradually pigeonhole Steven into the same position as his mother, Connie proves her worth by reminding him of who he really is.
