Zoltron sees sadness in your future, no matter what you do.
Take a moment and ask yourself

Steven and Connie explore the world through a book, because of course.
Or: Sardonyx Steals the Show (literally).
Steven spends the whole episode trying to win over an enemy. It doesn’t turn out like he hopes.
The rubies return to hassle our heroes some more, and to drop a reveal on poor Steven.
This double-length episode is more serious than usual as the show attempts to tackle the subject of war.
This is a prime example of worldbuilding with minimal dialogue (but still with a heart).
With Lapis and Peridot finally settled in, Steven gets to return to normal…but the new normal includes discovering new powers and struggling to control them.
I saw this as a possibility, but I’m surprised that this is the path we’re taking.
