Su's writing is just atrocious. The entire sardonyx week was a mess. Like amethyst signing a song about feeling bad for the sugilite situation but for what reason? They both wanted to fuse and were both excited. Its not ame or garnet fault at all. And after that pearl being put on a pedestal and even an ep about not hating her and ame is seen comforting her while no one was there for garnet. Like ffs even if the abuser feel "bad". The victim is the one deserving of support CREWNIVERSE.
I never picked up on how bad the sardonyx arc was until I read criticism on here and rewatched it. It’s amazing what you miss when you’re blinded by your love of the show lol.
The fact Sugilite lost control was pretty much Pearl’s fault too, and at the end of the arc Garnet was the one to give Pearl a pep talk and make her feel better, Garnet had to work through how she felt on her own (well, as Ruby and Sapphire) and that’s really unfair.
