I think in the context of Steven’s character development given his role as a healer/mediator and his struggles with Rose’s legacy, it’s an absolutely wonderful episode. I think in the context of our current cultural dialogue when we have to be considering in very real terms what a fight against oppressors might look like, and in the context of the show’s pattern of butch representation, it’s an episode that requires a follow-up. However, I also think we’re getting it, seeing as Steven was clearly haunted by its events.
Honestly, it just boils down to the fact that the Crewniverse has my benefit of the doubt still. Though I completely understand why it was a divisive episode.

As they tried to scan Billy, an invisible object kept getting in the way as soon as they began scanning his face. After numerous attempts, and an impromptu EVP session, Billy allowed himself to be scanned and the invisible object was gone.
