Along Together is my favorite episode from steven universe… but I just get in love with Jail Break…
You’re not gonna stop what we’ve made together. We are gonna stay like this forever. If you break us apart we’ll just come back newer. And we’ll always be twice the gem that you are. I am made of love. Love.
10 - Steven and the Stevens: Some of the best music in a SU episode. Not to mention the gloriously unique take on the clone/multiplying character cliche.
9 - The Test: Another great soundtrack, this built on what Steven had been going through in Warp Tour. There’s more distrust, more wonderful music and Indiana Jones homages.
8 - Maximum Capacity: Amethyst you bitch
7 - Mirror/Ocean Gem: These two set the scale for all future episodes. This has it all, humor, darkness, action, drama and that cute Steven charm that infects every episode to some degree.
6 - On the Run: I know why it’s here, you know why it’s here. “I never asked to be made”
5 - The Return/Jailbreak: I almost prefer the Return which is nearly unheard of in the SU fanbase. Jailbreak does have Stronger than You, Malachite, Peridot’s sass and that damn HAND SPACESHIP crash, but it’s not as good as the Return. The Return has some of the best build up, best exposition, best imagery and Peridot’s most badass moment of all time.
4 - Marble Madness: More Robonoids, more Kindergarten, more locations, and the coolest and best climaxes of an episode ever. Pearl’s announcement, Peridot’s fighting back. It’s just a fun episode to rollercoaster through.
3 - Warp Tour: Steven gets mad. Steven gets obsessive, Steven almost dies. Mirror/Ocean Gem set the scale but Warp Tour set the tone for Steven Universe in 2015. Peridot, Homeworld, Warp Pads, Near Death, Darker places for characters. Is there anything Warp Tour doesn’t have?
2 - Rose’s Scabbard: This episode hits deep. Pearl gives us so much development, so much depth and so much pain that gives a new dimension to the show. And the last montage with the music always gets me.
1 - Laser Light Cannon: I was in the living room on the computer playing Borderlands 2 I think. Cartoon Network was on in the background. The theme song starts playing and… well I sit there, playing Borderlands 2 with Laser Light Cannon in the background. The entire episode, it was so good to listen to. It came to me during a pretty uncomfortable time in my life. I was hooked on SU ever since.
