Blue Pearl’s curiosity gets the better of her and she sneaks into a room in Blue Diamond’s sanctuary that’s forbidden to everyone, where she finds a secret cache of bubbled Rose Quartz gems. But when she hears someone coming, Blue Pearl runs out of the room, hoping Blue Diamond didn’t catch her, and is relieved to see it’s merely Yellow Pearl coming over to practice a new duet. However, the two soon discover that in Blue Pearl’s haste, she accidentally popped one of the bubbles and released one of the Rose Quartzes. What will the two Pearls do with this rogue Gem they’ve let loose and how will they keep the Diamonds from finding out?
Steven is really going to have to turn inward and face himself. Throughout the show, he’s put everyone else first, and his main goal has been to become the person his family wants him to be. That’s got to shift. He’s got to accept that it’s impossible to fill the shoes of his mother, Rose Quartz. She was always barefoot.
What’s exciting as we get deeper into the show is making him realize that there are the magic Gem powers, but there are powers that people have as human beings to understand themselves and define themselves and make their own choices. It’s an incredible power that we all have, and are often told to ignore or take for granted. Those are the kinds of powers I’m excited to have him learn how to explore.
