Okay, not only does this episode shine light on the Gems individual relationships with Greg, but brings another element.
Before Steven, things were different.
Amy and Greg hung out and had a fav tv show. Pearl and garnet didn’t like the show or the obsession.
More than that,
They had a DISCUSSION ON WHY HE DOESNT LIKE SHAPESHIFTING.
But that’s less important than the fact that instead of handling her anger and sadness and fear, Amethyst shape shifted into the one person that could hurt him, the person he loved and lost, just like Amethyst loved and lost her.
In order to make herself feel worse than she does, Amethyst hurts the people she cares about. She lashes out. It justifies her into thinking she’s truly bad if she acts bad, rather than feeling fake as a bad person trying to play hero.
In the end, I think they all have a really complicated relationship, as Rose, the person who held them together is gone and they are left to pick up the pieces.
Not to mention the impact of Amethyst hurting Greg in front of Steven, this is a lot for little Steven to have to deal with so young.
I’m glad they came to a soft hearted ending in this though, Amy is a redeemable character, and that’s what’s really important.
ALSO HOW HOT DID THE MOMS LOOK IN THE NEW CLOTHES. GARNET NEEDS TO JOIN A MOM GANG THAT WOULD BE SO TIGHT.
