Its amusing when you get “umm..actually” poeple after the episode aired. Like, damn, you have some weird need to correct people. I made my “will Lapis trying to drown Connie be mentioned” discussion before seeing the ep, based on a short clip and some stills. And based on the show having a pattern of letting Lapis get away with stuff
I said I would happily be wrong. Hell, that’s part of speculating. You open yourself up to being wrong. Or you get lucky and end up being right.
The drowning was brought up and Connie was acting kinda uncomfortable. Good. But what struck me the most is Lapis saying “I’ve almost drowned a lot of people when stealing the ocean.”
It makes sense given her role as a terraformer. She moves oceans and I’m certain some people have gotten killed because of it. Which also implies that Lapis had killed people before. Because her trying to drown Connie was not an accident, it was deliberate. So for her to be so blazé about it…..yikes.
It also brings up another point: Lapis seems to only focus on how she was wronged and not on how she has wronged others. She remember being trapped in a mirror and being forced back to Earth, but conveniently forgets the human she almost killed when trying to escape the Earth. She did remember breaking Greg’s leg though, I’ll give her that. But that could be explained by how “breaking” might seem worse from a Gem POV. For them, that is death.
But I still like to think she’d remember the girl right next to Steven.
