Couldn’t help myself and watched Mindful Education.
Just a warning guys: It will make you cry, but for various reasons.
I cried when Garnet and Stevonnie started singing together. The parallels between them just came together and it was so beautiful. These fusions are made of love, of two people who care about each other more than anybody else in the world. They’re fusions that people had never seen before. Stevonnie is the first gem/human fusion, and at the time, Garnet was the first fusion of two different types of gems. Garnet is one of the most powerful gems on the show because she’s made of love, and I think Stevonnie might one day become as strong as her, maybe even stronger.
I also cried when it stared showing what Steven was trying not to think about. I kept wondering why they were putting so much focus on Connie hurting this random kid, and then I realized that it was meant to parallel what Steven was feeling. He hurt Bismuth and Eyeball, and he didn’t mean to. He tried to save Jasper, but he couldn’t. And his mom, he doesn’t know what to think about her anymore. She used to be this perfect wonderful person. Now that he’s found out what she did to Bismuth and Pink Diamond, she haunts his mind as much as Bismuth, Eyeball, and Jasper. All of the traumatic things he’s gone through are finally starting to get to him, and it’s so sad to see. This poor kid just wants to help those around him, and he can’t. I’m hoping Connie will be his rock for him, something that keeps him steady and helps him recover from the bad things that have happened in the past, and probably will happen in the future.
