Episode 57b: Season Two shorts

Join Daria and Ivy as they watch and talk about the Season 2 shorts and cover such topics as Gem 'biology', Steven not knowing what an essay is, the idea of 'baby' Gems, headcanons on what extra body parts Stevonnie might have hidden (two hearts??), hot dog length standards, speculation on the Slinker, Steven being routinely asked to help in battles these days, what Amethyst would feed cats, cat habits, speculation on Steven's age when he moved in with the Gems, why Greg doesn't live in the house with Steven, Steven's perception of fulfilling the legacy of Rose Quartz, and speculation about the mysterious character in the extended opening.  

Probing Question (one for each short):

  1.  Do you think the Gems think it's creepy to see a poofed Gem in gemstone form, like it's akin to a dead body?  
  2. Do Gems come out with blank minds or with some knowledge? 
  3. What do you think the creator of the Gems intended fusion to be used for? 
  4. What TubeTube channel themes would the other characters have? 
  5. Which character would be most likely to adopt a cat? 
  6. What kind of entrance does a built-up villain need to be satisfying?
