The way I saw it, the reason the reveal was so big was because it puts all of Garnet’s actions in a different light. The character that we thought was one was actually two characters all along. And as for us only seeing Ruby and Sapphire for a few minutes, we’ve already seen plenty of them from the beginning, because they are what make up Garnet.

Well said.

Lightice

Exactly. I couldn’t believe how Doug and Rob completely managed to miss it.

It really puts that phone call garnet had with connies parents in perspective. Who panicked?
Oh no the children are bleeding there dead.

Also, Garnet’s song doubled as a form of character development, specifically developing how it feels to be the kind of fusion she is. Evey episode that has brought up fusion has also brought up how big of a deal it is, that you’re sharing your entire being with someone, and the fusions we’ve seen have always been in only one episode, and usually don’t get a ton of dialogue, so up till now we haven’t got a great idea of what being a fusion for an extended period feels like.

Couldn’t have said it better, yes .. we already know a lot about Ruby and Sapphire because they ARE Garnet, i don’t know how they missed this. Also, speaking of character development, the song “Stronger than You” IS chuck full of character development for Garnet, she is finally open about who she really is, she expresses pride and joy about the fact she is a fusion and taunts her opponent about it while saying very interesting lines like that she is more than the two of them and that she is everything they care about, or my fav line “I’m… Read more »

Just to be nit-picky, Garnet is saying “I’m their fury, I’m their patience”. This illustrates one of the best parts of the song, how Garnet is constantly switching between first person and third person plural pronouns. And for me, one of the more interesting lyrics is “And I won’t let you hurt my planet”. As we’ve learned more about the Gems, we’ve seen how they seemed to be more loyal to Rose than to Earth or humanity, but this line is one of the first and few straight confirmations that at least Garnet has fully adopted Earth as her home.

Yeah… this episode was a lot better before everyone started holding up as THE GREATEST EVAR and could just appreciate for what it is: a very good cap off to a season that wraps up most of the most pressing plot threads and leaves enough open to make a good second season. Personally, I still love Garnet’s song and the fight, perhaps even more than the Walkers, but, being honest, I kind of prefer “Ocean Gem,” if only because Lapis was a bit more of an interesting nemesis than Jasper. I realize getting turned off by something by it being… Read more »

Have to agree. When I first saw this (regular watcher from the start), I was super afraid of this episode becoming Steven Universe’s “Blink.” I do enjoy it, but there was so much of a great show to enjoy up to that point. A bunch of people suddenly pouring in because “something happened” is not a logic I can get behind.

Bugberry
Guest

The reason I found Jasper more interesting as an enemy was because she was the first enemy that wasn’t morally grey like Lapis or a aloof worker like Peridot. Jasper was the first opponent that directly and physically outmatched them and couldn’t be reasoned with.

Ooki
Guest

I’m not surprised the hype killed it. This reciew is the Ice King’s glasses all over again.

I think they’re just over thinking it. That Garnet was a fusion was the big bomb of this episode. Of course we’ll find out more about Ruby and Sapphire later, but we just learned a lot about one of the main characters. And the heart of the episode was in the song, so I was disappointed hearing them refer to it as “just a fight.”

Nessos26

Rob, you habe no idea what the relationship between Rose and Pearl is, because all the hints till now go right over your head. You are lucky because in the next 20 ep the hints will become so obvious that no one can ignore them.

Xonlic
Guest

Honestly, I’m sad the hyper killed the enjoyment of this episode, but they aren’t wrong either. It’s a building up of a bigger story with who Garnet is.

That being said, I adore this episode for the song most of all. It gave insight into Garnet, plus the voice actor is the one who sang it. That was the big moment for me.

I do hope they keep going on these Vlogs because from here, the show really takes off.

dkscribbler31
Guest
I think the issue with Rob’s thinking of Rose and Pearl being a lot more compelling than Ruby and Sapphire right now is the fact that neither Rob or Doug are considering the context of Ruby/Sapphire or Rose/Pearl in the gems’ societies (because they haven’t quite hit that point in the series where they go in depth into it). They’re not quite picking up the subtle drops that the crewniverse drops either – they’re immediately assuming things in relation to how things are usually presented in the media. Which is okay! But it kind of keeps them from assuming or… Read more »
GreekJR
Guest

These two seem incredibly susceptible to hype. You can see it in a lot of Doug’s videos and I guess it extends to his brother too. It kind of blinds them to the stuff that is in the episode. They focus on one aspect of the episode instead of what everything builds to.

The fight was full of character development since it was about a couple taking on a greater threat than either one of them can face on their own. Reducing it to “just a fight” seems laughable.

Megalodon
Guest
They did make the good point that it didn’t really make much sense for Garnet to be so easily defeated (poofed) in the last episode, but suddenly now that her secret is revealed she has the special power to kick Jasper’s butt, and with a smile? It was a very anime thing to do, when a character suddenly gets some kind of extra strength or power enough to win their battle through the power of Heart!, or being reminded of what they’re fighting for, or because they needed a reason to shout (in this case sing) about what makes them… Read more »
Oddworld Inhabitant

Well, there’s that, and also Garnet didn’t know about the destabilizer before. One could argue that once she knew about that she could fight Jasper more effectively.

Kiwi_Jr
Guest

I’m thinking that maybe Garnet used future vision to see the outcome of the battle and realized that letting herself be defeated was the best option because, after reforming and fusing again, they would be able to destroy the ship from the inside. Remember, Peridot can contol the ship without even having to be inside and Steven got exhausted after blocking the first shot. Even if Garnet defeated Jasper, Peridot still had the ship.

Lightice
Guest

Garnet was easily defeated the first time because Jasper had a weapon that she had never even heard of. The second time around she had time to figure out its weaknesses, and without it Jasper is no different from the warrior gems of old. The gem technology may have advanced, but their own abilities have not.

Bugberry
Guest

I also figured that Garnet, having newly refused, was full of Love and positive feelings as apposed to the fear from earlier. And since we know that 1. Gems are influenced by their emotions and 2. Fusions are expressions of a relationship, Garnet was tangibly more powerful than before.

Oddworld Inhabitant
Guest
I figured I’d include this as a separate comment since the topic has become so big it’s kind of eclipsed the episode itself. I thought the reveal that Garnet was, in fact, a permanent fusion was neat and surprising… but not exactly earth-shattering. I enjoyed it, but I honestly enjoyed the following song and battle sequence far more as a part of the episode. Honestly, the reveal about what happened to the fallen Crystal Gems (those who know, know) was a lot more shocking for me, and also a lot more intriguing, although that may just reflect my fondness for… Read more »

so you are tired of people being overjoyed when we see themselves represented in mainstream media, a thing that helps validate our existence? especially representation that younger kids will see, so maybe the currently staggeringly high rate of teen lgbtqia+ suicides will go down?

i’m not offended. i’m disgusted.

*we see ourselves

why does this site not let us edit comments sheesh

LucasWest

I think their point was that these kinds of relationships are viewed as so commonplace and normal by most of the adult audience of this show that the gender of characters in a relationship is not relevant to the story being told. Not to speak for anyone, that’s just how I see it. And I think the creators as well since that’s how it’s treated in the story.
I personally didn’t even think about it as anything beyond the actual point, which is that Garnet was actually a fusion all along, which is very compelling and interseting

GreekJR
Guest
Depends on the bubble you live in. For many it’s hard to be open about your sexuality because you can be alienated by everyone around you. There’s a high amount of suicides in young people because they aren’t accepted in the society they live in. There’s are families that shame or disown their children for being gay. Having representation in media is important for starting a conversation and normalizing non-traditional relationships, gender roles, etc. It should be celebrated because it creates a circle of acceptance. The media shows that it should be accepted, that these people are people and that… Read more »

GreekJR: Sorry I didn’t mention you in the other post; you appeared as I was typing. I fear I might be repeating myself, but I don’t resent anyone for discussing the presence of LGBTIQ characters, or for being happy at there being more of them. I just would prefer that such discussion doesn’t overwhelm any discussion had of the story. I’m also glad that the old stereotypes are being defanged, but is it so much to ask that that not be the only thing we talk about when we discuss these stories? Shouldn’t what the story is actually be about… Read more »

GreekJR: Sorry to offend if I did so, that wasn’t my intention. I’m only trying to say that people, like the Walkers, seem to be ignoring most of the actual character building ideas of this episode to focus instead on something that, in my opinion, is not really very relevant to the episode, regardless of how people feel about said topic in real life. This show doesn’t try to make statements or change minds. At the most it gives undercurrents and more general themes on LOVE, without gender being an issue. Which, in my opinion, is the best way to… Read more »

lacking_psilosynine: I wasn’t saying that people shouldn’t be happy about diversity being represented, I was just saying that I’m annoyed when discussion of that representation overwhelms all discussion of the story itself. Especially when the gender of the characters being romantically involved is ancillary to the episode, as was the case here and with Korra. As I said, I’m happy to see diversity get more representation, but it annoys me when when reviewers I watch to learn their opinions of a story focus instead on an aspect that, while relevant, is, in these cases, secondary at most to the themes… Read more »
LucasWest
Guest

Yeah, my point was more that the adults who watch this show are less likely to be surprised by something like this, regardless of the global awareness. As you said, the fact that their gender isn’t even a thing in the show is what makes it a good portrayal in the first place.

Souledge94
Guest

I guess you can you call garnet a lesbian icon,but the thing is the gems have no gender. They are not female or male. They are just gems.

HanSK
Guest

you should not be overjoyed over something that is considered normal

Todd
Guest

Funny thing is in terms of the lore itself, Ruby and Sapphire are status quo in their feelings while Greg and Rose would be divergent.

Which is the other weird thing about it. I don’t know if the creators are trying to do something for the LGBTIQ community or not. Clearly their relationship has significance in the eyes of our society without context but in context it is like being mad or overjoyed that flatworms are asexual.

Falconfly
Guest

Not necessarily. Fusion is seen as a disgrace, and its implied Homeworld Gems hate the concept of love.

Todd
Guest

Good point but also not necessarily true. Lapis in her message said that homeworld was very different. So while we have indications from the other gems we have seen, things may have gone south on homeworld and a world of love and peace turned into one of conquest and dominace.

What I am trying to say is that Gem Nazis are a distinct possibility.

Oddworld Inhabitant
Guest
Hm… The main issue is that we don’t know who imprisoned Lapis or when. It seems like she was ancient even to the Crystal Gems, so it’s possible the world she remembers hasn’t existed for eons. Sort of imagine if a Han Dynasty scholar somehow got transported to modern China; there’d be a few things they recognize, but not much. Perhaps Lapis was imprisoned just as the Gem interstellar colonization project began, and was thus unprepared for the ruthless lengths the modern Gems colonists would go to. The reason I’m hedging my bets here is because we know the Fusion… Read more »
Todd
Guest
True it definitely could have been a long time ago. I think fusion was commonplace in Homeworld but then some incident went against fusion in favor of other technology and “efficent” fusions. One thing I have noticed (and I am sure someone has written this down somewhere) is that the power, stability, and humanoid properties of the Gem fusion depends on the personalities of the fusers. So Garnet is an excellent fusion. Powerful, almost perfectly stable, and aside from the extra eye and extra gem looks “normal”. Opal, was strong, fairly stable, and pretty “normal looking”. I believe Amethyst’s and… Read more »

Exactly. The internet seems to have a bad habit of fixating on representation as if it were the narrative rather than just a part of it.

Cooperklebba

Is it just me, or are Doug and Rob not talking about Steven alot? Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not saying that HATE him or anything. They did say he was a good character. I guess I’m weirded out since he’s the MAIN CHARACTER and they don’t seem to talk about him alot. Especially since he did actually save the gems and helped them escape in this episode. No biggie, I’m sure they’re gonna talk about him in the upcoming episodes.

Bugberry
Guest

I think that’s the point of the earlier season 2 episodes like Full Disclosure and Joy Ride. The show and Steven have been focusing a lot on the Gems, and now we’re going to start to see the consequences, especially now that the stakes have been raised.

SillyInventor
Guest
My favorite part of the episode was the song, and it didn’t even get a mention. Also, Peridot is now on earth, we know why the gems don’t fuse all the time, we got to see Lapis (and feel for her a bit)… but most importantly, we now know why all the gems are on earth. Rose did it to save humanity, pearl did it for rose, amethyst didn’t get a choice, and garnet was a ‘pervert.’ Also, what is this lesbian reveal non-sense? If the gems are girls, then all the fusions were lesbian. Gems don’t have a gender,… Read more »
Megalodon

So you missed the part where they mentioned the song, then? It was brief, but they did.

Dethhollow
Guest
The reason why people equate Garnet to a lesbian relationship is because even though they don’t have sexual organs, being fused full-time is the equivalent of being in a full-on relationship while just being fused for battle is more equated to just working together as friends. Not only does it work for a parallel with a real-world issue since it’s undeniable that that is what this is meant to convey, but it also makes sense from an in-universe perspective since we do see that this type of relationship does change how gems act for better or for worse and this… Read more »
SillyInventor
Guest
I agree that they have a long term relationships on a level that surpasses even rose and pearl. But if they are female, then we must consider that any and all relationships between this all female group to be homosexual. I don’t mind it, but it means the reveal of Garnet isn’t special because of it’s LGBT implications. I also agree that it is meant to be a sex parallel. Where we differ seems to be whether it is reasonable for the gems to be repulsed or afraid of fusion. I think the way it has been introduced to us… Read more »

You’re talking about aliens that resemble specifically female Homo sapiens, on a show made by Homo sapiens.

The “they’re aliens so it doesn’t apply” bullshit can only fly for so long.

Skane
Guest
In the end, I don’t think gender really matters to the gems, I don’t think that lesbians should label them as lesbians because they don’t identify as human. You’re forcing human characteristics onto them that have been repeatedly shown not to apply to them. If a lesbian wants to relate to them I encourage them as much as I would a heterosexual person. All we can say for sure is that they are an amazing relationship, they have a relationship that everyone can relate to, whether or not they are homosexual or heterosexual. The relationship doesn’t fall into the normal… Read more »
Souledge94
Guest

Thank you the gems are not anything.Male or female. What your suppose to take away is the relationship not the gender espcially when there isint any. Also the fact the gems never identify as female. Gems see each other as gems. They dont see things like gender and age.

Skane
Guest

Really? I could have sworn that they refer to each other as she/her throughout the series? They definitely don’t use our human concept of age though.

Souledge94
Guest

Na the she/her thing is never meant to mean they see themselves as females. I remember sugar saying something along the lines of they could easily be called he/him as well. They just look female so the gems went with that,but since gems really dont see gender you can call them him and they would be fine with it. Plus it makes writing a whole lot easier. Could you imagaine using they/it or just their names constally in writing.

SillyInventor
Guest
That is, I think, the point. We are meant to think about their gender, and try and project labels, and through a failure to properly categorize them as gay, women, wealthy, old meant to accept them as they are. Then, once you’ve accepted these categories don’t matter or apply to them, we’re exposure to their original society and their views on their analogs of race / class, sex, family, etc. In so doing it becomes natural to reflect on how we categorize our society. Their society says it’s wrong, regardless of gender, and the audience knows otherwise. Love is love.… Read more »

If you’re interested in the pearl – rose – greg dynamic, you’ll probably like episode 61, “We need to talk”.

Also, fun fact for Rob and Doug (if they ever read this): If you watch Fusion Cuisine and keep your eye on Alexandrite as she separates, you can catch the silhouettes of Sapphire and Ruby in the separating glowing mess right before they become Garnet and hit the ground.

LucasWest
Guest

Ok, I haven’t watched the vlog yet, but do they spend most of it talking about how they think the point of the Ruby and Sapphire reveal is that they’re both girls? They tend to take marginally important aspects of shows and use them as talking points, rather than analyse the story and characters, like when they talked about the Korra ending. They will probably talk about that too.

anagaby
Guest

The thing that made the fandom explode wasn´t that Ruby and Saphire are lesbians, but the fact that Garnet is a fusion.

It was a popular headcannon b/c of the clues (like her having 2 gems, on on each hand, instead of 1), and after it was officially cannon, people went crazy. Also it was confirmed the same week they premiered the Gravity Falls episode when they reveal Stan´s twin brother and the KND announced it´s possible spin-off G:KND

Skane

Whats G:KND??? I just googled it! Is this real?!?

Kradeiz

To answer your question, Rob, you currently have 21 episodes (about half a season) to go before you’re all caught up. It’s too bad you guys got hype backlash from this episode, though it makes me very grateful that I managed to see it when it first premiered and could see it with fresh eyes. But if I had discovered the show later like you guys and everyone was going on and on about it…yeah, I probably would’ve been a touch disappointed. What’s funny is that this episode came out the same week as ‘Not What He Seems’ in Gravity… Read more »

The song was my favorite part and I really felt it was the center of the episode. Because yeah the ruby and sapphire thing was an omg moment, but it’s what they do with it results in the song stronger than you.

Which you should maybe listen to again and appreciate the lyrics. For me personallu it’s one of those things that needs a repeat, I swear i feel/learn something different every time I listen to it

Seriously, it’s REALLY annoying. It’s not funny, nor was it ever and they really need to stop it.

I’m feeling the same way. If they do it one more time, I quit watching these. I’m almost ready to stop watching them already, with how they’re being so condescending towards the fans in every. single. vlog.

minkweasel

That was just my lame attempt at doing the sarcastic “nothing happened” thing except towards you. You can smack me if you want.

Ok I do think it’s annoying and not funny, but I don’t see why it’s a reason to stop watching them. It only makes up a tiny part of the vlog.

Sorry you hate it, but try to remember they don’t do the vlogs for the sole entertainment of one person. I keep seeing this mentality rolling around and it drives me nuts ._. I still think it’s amusing, I like running gags though.

It’s a shame you both had the episode watered down by fan build up. I got to watch it ‘raw’ without pre-knowledge and found Garnet’s transformation incredible! When Doug was talking about viewing the previous episodes with this knowledge of Garnet I’m surprised he didn’t mention the previous episode. Looking back to “The Return” was the first thing I did. “Oh, so Garnet wasn’t destroyed by that weapon shattering into two pieces she was split into the damaged Ruby and Sapphire. Whoa”. Garnet’s three eyes aside I thought it would be seeing two gems fall not one that would give… Read more »

The fact that she’s voiced by a popstar is another give away since all of the fusions sans Malachite are popstars.

I agree with them. The fanbase for this show kind of almost kills the show. I heard all this hype, how amazing the show was, etc. I started watching it when they started the vlogs (though I’ve seen almost all of them now) and yeah, it’s a nice show. That’s it. There’s some cool episodes/concepts/characters, but most of it is just alright. It’s not bad. It’s not amazing. But I feel like I might’ve liked it more if it didn’t have all the hype, so I wouldn’t think about what it could have been. I think if it took itself… Read more »

Not really sure about your point since the show is very character driven and takes everything regarding relationships and characters very seriously.

I guess seriously meaning makes it more of the main focus. Most episodes are basically typical kid show stuff speckled with small bits of plot/character development. Not saying every episode has to have something amazing happen, but I feel like I’ve barely learned anything plot wise compared to the amount of episodes I’ve watched. Adventure time does something similar with the small bits of plot thing, but I don’t know what it is but I just enjoy it more. Maybe because I started liking it because the creativity/silliness of each episode, and then learned about something “more”. With this show… Read more »

Honestly I felt this episode was way too overhyped, sure there is quite a bit of good stuff in it but to me it really didn’t feel like it deserved even half the praise it gets. As for Garnet being a fusion I kinda figured that out by myself back in “Coach Steven” when you see Garnet and Amethyst fuse into Sugilite, you can quite clearly see 3 gems amongst the light and with the other clues already given it just seemed like that would be the case and lo and behold when I reached Jail Break I turned out… Read more »

Also to answer your question at the end about gay males in kids shows: In the movie Paranorman, the older brother(I think) who the girl crushes on is gay. It’s basically just a joke at the end but it still counts I think.

also, the Cartoon Network show Clarence has a gay couple in it
and they made their first appearance BEFORE the LoK finale

This was actually the first episode I saw as well, so like Doug I knew the twist going in. However, I still thought it added a very interesting dimension to Garnet’s character even knowing from the beginning, especially during the fusion episodes (which was something I still didn’t understand until I saw the whole show). So I guess I don’t mind so much that it got spoiled for me. But yeah, I could see where the hype would ruin it. But I think aside from the twist people also regard this episode as just a general turning point where the… Read more »

No, you don’t understand! Ruby and Sapphire are cousins. COUSINS!! What I liked about the reveal of Garnet being actually two midget (sort of) lesbians stacked together is that they basicly told the audience all the time whats up (3 eyes, two gems, being overjoyed when Steven and Connie fuse) and much like in Hot Fuzz we where still surprised. SU is really one of the shows where paying attention pays off big time.

I think that this is an episode that the more blind you can be to it the better it is. I talked a friend into watching Steven Universe and she hasn’t gotten here yet and its been so hard to not give anything away or hype things too much. It’s funny but with everything that happens in this episode there is one small moment that gets forgotten or overshadowed which I think is one of Steven’s greatest moments. It’s when he’s found Lappis and she’s given up and is trying to convince him not to fight. She presses on him… Read more »

What the heck is wrong with people?! Don’t give into the hype, guys!!! NEVER give into the hype! Whenever an episode of ANYTHING comes out, judge it by your own standards instead of building it up to be something you know it probably won’t be. If something’s good, you’ll see it’s good and just being hyped doesn’t make the episode any worse, it just makes your view unreliable because you walked into something expecting something much more than what you got. It’s like if I bought a TV and the guy who sold it to me was like “This is… Read more »

But there’s a difference between “It’s the best thing ever” hype and “It’s unique and deep and you should check it out”. It sounds like people often talk about the show, especially this episode, like the first kind of hype.

Well, them leaning in to kiss each other as the show fades away is probably at the root of it.

Also, the creators have confirmed it and (IIRC) pointed out that there was subtle subtext throughout the season.

Kiwi_Jr
Guest

They end up as a couple, it was confirmed. They held hands and gazed at each other in a romantic way. It probably happened the same thing like happened with Aang and Katara and they agreed off-screen to date once everything was over. The creators had to be more subtle about it because Nickelodeon could have canceled the show if they found out or at least they would have forced them to change that.

Falconfly

Probably because it was about as explicit as it could be on Nick standards.
