OOOOOH! I just had an idea! What if Jasper falls through the Crust of the Earth and finds the Cluster and fuses with it. Since she is a full consciousness rather than just a shard, she takes full control of the Cluster and although she has “control” she’s still wild and out of control.

I don’t think she would be able to just take control of the Cluster and force it to form, but she might realize what’s going on, pop the bubble, and use the light that comes from the thing forming to get back to the surface. Although it’s kind-of unlikely that she fell ALL the way down there at all since it was buried in a completely different area and they needed the drill to go through all the magma and all the hardened layers of rock and stuff so they could find it. It’s more likely that one the gems… Read more »

So to clarify, here’s what the deal was with the Cluster: It naturally wants to form so it can find the missing pieces of its gems and become whole, but Steven somehow communicated with it and convinced it that it already had enough pieces to be whole…. Which might actually sort-of be the case since the thing is made of billions of gems and we know there’s a limited number of gem types like how there’s multiple Rubies that all act the same and are kind-of the same person. So the gem shards bubbled eachother to keep from forming and… Read more »

I’m pretty sure the Cluster didn’t want to form because Steven told them it would destroy the Earth. The reason they don’t want to destroy the Earth is that the cluster is made up of Rose’s soldiers who were broken during the rebellion. Garnet mentions them in the episode where they first see a forced fusion. “This is where they’ve been all the ones we couldn’t find.” Because the cluster is made up of broken gems who were destroyed protecting the Earth it makes sense that their collective personality would be horrified by the thought of destroying it.

It was a cool two parter,but it felt like everything wrapped up way to fast and easy. They promoted this as a 4 week event it really wasint.

7:26 Well, there WAS a Melon Dog
9:10 if that had been where they ended season 2 watch as they pulled a Sonic SatAm and cancelled the show right then and there.

They weren’t sacrificing the watermelon guy, the leader recognized it was steven that’s why they painted a star on him

NO! This came too quickly. I bought the episode from ITunes but I haven’t gotten a chance to see it yet. Follow up comment to come (hopefully tomorrow). Also, LOL. Lupis. ^.^

“You two should spend some time apart.” Both of the episodes were handled really well, but I was hoping that it would take at least two or three episodes to bring down Malachite. Despite how condensed it was, though, the Malachite and Alexandrite fight is still one of the best that the show has had. It’s a shame that most of it was leaked months ago. The main purpose of the main purpose of the Watermelon Stevens was to provide Steven with a way to be present for the fight, since the majority of the show is supposed to be… Read more »

Epic fights and lots of melons. Yeah, that sounds very anime.

Very good
I liked the episodes. I am glad that the series is continuing
Yes the fight was interesting
animeflavor.me you can check the next episode there
If they were not watermelons it would be so gory
They don’t want to fuse and ruin everything but they do want to not be alone and broken

Yeah, I could have gone without the watermelon subplot as well. I guess they were cute though. They were kind of like the Ewoks. I can’t believe they actually helped anything. Also, Peridot is my new favorite as of Gem Drill. Sorry, Garnet. Oh, and I’m so immature but I laughed my butt off when Peridot was using “triple penetration mode”. O.O One last thing: I’m starting to like Steven more now. He used to annoy me. Ironic, I know.

The main problem that killed a lot of the tension for the Cluster arc for me is that the Gems never had a plan beyond drilling down into the Earth. They had an entire month to put at least some plan together, but they spent it chasing cows and watching Camp Pining Hearts. Without any baseline for the narrative to confirm or subvert, the audience has no idea what to expect, and nothing to anticipate. For that reason, the resolution to the Cluster arc felt like a bit of a letdown compared to “Mirror Gem”/”Ocean Gem” and “The Return”/”Jailbreak”. Resolving… Read more »
