Nearly wrapping up the Summer of Steven event going on with this week being the final episodes of Season 3.  Can say without spoilers that there's been a lot of build up and a lot of very heavy topics and situation that happened on this show that I just love.  This week will conclude the summer event and judging of what is being built up and seeing the official sneak peeks, this one is going to be intense!

Also will note that even after the event is over that we'll be going back to weekly episodes on Thursdays that should run through the fall!  Basically we get all new episodes this week and the on the 18th starts weekly episodes that start us up into Season 4.

Feel free to discuss what has happen!  What did you like, what didn't you like, and any new songs that you guys liked?

Ok, so i've just [roughly] caught up on the current episodes after allowing a back log to build - IE, the last episode I watched was 'hit the diamond' - So I've spent most of my time today catching up. I've just finished the episode entitled 'Earthlings', and I know I have at least two more episodes that are out to catch up on - or at least, will be soon.

very quickly, I want to say I have *loved* these episodes - Especially Mr.Greg, and the half hour special - which I will briefly talk about in spoilers in a moment - because they just... bring so much growth to the series? Like in these new episodes, the world of SU has grown a surprising amount, along with the characters in it.

Anyway, from here on out I will just post in the spoiler topic, and it *will* contain spoilers. If you're not up to date, I advise not reading.


Spoiler:

Ok, so lets talk about Bismuth. This is... this is an episode I think needed to happen, and I like the way most of it was portrayed. I'm very quickly going to post a youtube video that I think shares a lot of points this episode has, but in a clearer manner than I can ramble about them, soooo feel free to watch it if you think it'll help. Either way, prepare for a wall of text.

I think Bismuth is an interesting character in the sense that she is never directly stated to be a villain. Indeed, in many ways Bismuth is perhaps the most devout of the crystal gems, and she is the only one who offers Steven the advice to be *better* than Rose. Like through out the series, the gems always talk about Steven living up to Rose and what not, but it's stifling to be under such a shadow - indeed, we even see this in Steven Vs Amethyst.

The episodes greatest strength comes from showing that not all 'evil' lies in the opposing sides. It dictates the idea of straying too far down the path, that eventually you lose yourself to it - And in many ways, Bismuth is... right? In war, a leader should never put their enemies troops before their own. The problem is, Bismuth takes this to mean that homeworld gems are lower than Crystal gems. That only Crystal gems fight for their allies, that only they have friends... except we know this isn't true. The Rubies that show up obviously have a close bond, and work well together as friends and allies.
Bismuth's problem is that she no longer see's Gems. She see's two sides in a war, and she's on one side - Which means to her, Homeworld Gems aren't important. Rose, on the otherhand, retains the idea that all gems should be saved, no matter what side they're on. This is... this is a moral I think is implied well throughout the story, but I don't think is ever touched on enough to make the point of it come across. I know many people are distressed that Steven doesn't 'magically talk Bismuth out of it like he does everyone else', but.. Steven never really talks anyone out of it. Peridot is left to discover the joys of Earth herself, Steven merely... pushes her that way. Steven gives them time, and I suspect given time he'd have done the same with Bismuth.
...Except she doesn't give him time. She attacks him, and he's forced to kill her - and to be honest, I'm not even sure he does. Considering how long it takes Bismuth to destablise, I wouldn't be surprised if part of it was her own doing, knowing she was beaten again. Knowing that Rose/Steven would never accept that they should place their friends lives over those of others. Part of me even hopes Bismuth knows she's doing wrong, which is why she doesn't take the chance to strike Steven down in those few moments she has left - in fact if she did so, she'd even have come out on top.

...I dunno I'm rambling now. I just think this was a really important episode, and was handled better than many people are making it out to be.

Heads up for those that like to keep up with the show, Gem Harvest will be airing on November 17th which marks the brief return of Steven Universe!  There also another episode coming up, Three Gems and a Baby that will be airing on December 1st.  I believe they are skipping a week with premieres due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US.

No additional word on episodes in December but I would imagine we'll get a few episodes before Christmas.  If not I do expect after that holiday to get more episodes most likely.

So, we have the dates of a new Steven Bomb coming up!

They will be arriving in the new year, and running through the week beginning January 30th, 2017!

Since most Steven Bombs tend to drop some big, important piece of story, I for one am hoping we get to learn more about homeworld and such. Everytime it's brought up we learn more, but also get more questions. Here's to hoping we get some answered soon.

hello yes gonna jump in here, i literally love this show so much. it's my fave tv show to date, besides star vs the forces of evil and gravity falls. (which i suggest both of those heavily).

my fave episode so far is probably the one where peridot stands up to yellow diamond. my fave song is probably defective.

Favorite Character? Rainbow Quartz. She's Pearl's bitter and Rose's flirt tied in one pretty package. I like all of the Quartz fusions tbh. Smokey is also precious.

Whelp.

So if the rest of you folks haven't heard, the entire Stevenbomb got leaked a few days ago in an 'apparent' accident on Cartoon Network's part.  They had put the FULL episodes on their app and well before they switched it to previews that the fans had managed to rip the episodes.

I've watched the episodes myself because spoilers were rampant.  If you saw them and want to talk about them, please us the spoilers tag!  Not everyone watched them as far as I know!

I'm super looking forward to Tiger Philanthropist. Not enough Amethyst focused episodes IMO. Okay that's not true... Not enough SU episodes in GENERAL!!! I'll take what I can get!

... Well okay again not true Rocknaldo felt super cringey Bloodstone ugh the worst.
... *hides his designs for Blood Diamond*
