❝ There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. ❞ ~ Washington Irving.
We have now seen both Ruby and Sapphire cry through Garnet. The first in Season One, episode 13 “So Many Birthdays” with Sapphire’s eye crying when Steven keeps aging. The second time, was Season Two, episode 11 (or 60, overall) when they see what has become of fragments of Gems who fought in the rebellion – and what Homeworld thinks of fusion.
