It has been a year since Barn Mates had aired in the U.S.(sadly I live in Asia, but still gonna celebrate this official date)
I remember when snippets of the episode were leaked months before airing and there was a heck ton of theories about them(Lapis and Peridot).
It has become my third favourite episode next to Mr. Greg and Giant Woman, but why?
Because this is the first time Lapis and Peridot had actually interacted so much on screen, this is the first time I saw Peridot say such significant things like:
“This place, doesn’t exactly feel like home yet. You’re alone, no one could possibly know what that feels like! Oh wait, I do! “ and “ We’re the same, except! you don’t have to be alone..”. (this is actually my fave Peri-quote)
It was glorious, though kinda sad since Lapis decided to break Peridot’s precious tape recorder and tell her to leave, but Lapis in the end listens to Steven and give Peridot a chance hence she saves both of them from the Roaming Eye.
