Now that Peridot’s managed to establish a working relationship with Pearl, it’s time for her to awkwardly connect with Amethyst (only slightly less offensively).
Now that Peridot’s finally resigned herself to working with the Crystal Gems, she just needs to learn how to treat them with respect and dignity.

The show has kinda written itself into a corner with Garnet and Pearl. This episode, they attempt to wriggle out of it (with somewhat mixed results).
Garnet gets really mad. Also, (more) Princess Tutu comparisons.
We get quite a lot of discussion of about fusion, with somewhat mixed results.
This is a fairly straightforward plot-focused episode, wherein Steven considers serious Gem matters with the same sort of care as Connie’s favorite book series.
Big changes are looming on the horizon, and Steven is the one with the unfortunate task of warning the other Crystal Gems.
