How to fix Storm in the Room.
Have everything play out as it did up until the point where he’s yelling at Rose. That still happens, but he doesn’t end up apologizing. He makes Rose disappear and goes into the burning room to find Bismuth. He unbubbles her and have a brief exchanges that goes into a cliffhanger.
Bismuth: Wha-? Steven?
Steven: I want to know everything.
And then the episode ends. It would’ve been so amazing and this episode would’ve meant so much more than, “Steven talks to himself for awhile”.
And in the next episode we can have 11 minutes of exposition, I sure wouldn’t mind getting answers about everything.
