  1. Roy says:

    I’ll actually be visiting my Grandparents outside of Rehobeth next week. Don’t know if I’ll make into town but it wold be nice. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen Funland.

    • Dylan Hysen says:

      Nice! Yeah Funland is pretty awesome but it’s soooo crowded during the summer. The Rehoboth boardwalk is just really nice in general, and now it has this added meaning with SU!

  2. akp13 says:

    I’m actually expecting at least 2 great episodes next week. Rebecca said “Some of my favorites of all time are coming up next week!!!” so it’s gotta be more than the musical episode.

  3. Steve says:

    You really don’t remember the town folks, you said last time we saw Kiki was in “Joy Ride”, but Kiki wasn’t in that episode, you had her confused with twin sister Jenny, last time Kiki was relevant was “Beach City Party”, maybe I am forgetting a later episode.

    I think Bizmuth is a character I could see dying, some fans want a gem to die because in their minds Steven has to witness death to grow as a death, which I don’t agree with, but if someone had to die, let it be Bizmuth, because we have no emotional attachment to her, it would be sad for Garnet and Pearl, and we would be sad for them, but that is it.

    It is not the same as killing off Peridot or Lapis, I have an emotional attachment, don’t let them die, while Bizmuth just meet, so in the worlds of Draco from Rocky IV, if she dies, she dies.

    The fan theory, is Rose bubbled Bizmuth because her existence was poison for the Earth’ environment and bubbled her hoping some day she would be able to exist on Earth without en danger the environment, and end of the two part episode she will volunteer be bubbled for the Earth’s own good hoping maybe some day a cure can found so she can exist. Her voice actress is credited as a guest voices, so odds are Bizmuth is not going to be become a recurring character.

    I hope Peridot turns the barn into something cool and look more like a home.

    My theory end of season, will be like Voltron: Legendary Defender season 1 ending, Steven, Lapis, and Peridot (maybe Jasper depending on how fast they move her development) separated from Garnet, Pearl, and Amethyst, and early next season, Steven leads the reformed Homeworld gems in their search for the original Crystal Gems.

    • Dylan Hysen says:

      That was Jenny in that episode?? I would have never remembered that. Don’t see the point of bringing in Bismuth just to kill her right away. Separating the gems is interesting. I could only really see it if Steven is separated from Earth or something, maybe on a homeworld colony.

      • Steve says:

        I don’t want any death or think we need death like some fans so, but better Bizmuth than Lapis or Peridot, that is all I am saying.

  4. theBSDude says:

    The names Bismuth lists might be proper gem names after all:

    “Crazy Legs” might actually be “Crazy Lace,” short for Crazy Lace Agate. “Bigs” might actually be “Bix,” short for Bixbite. “Snowflake” might be short for Snowflake Obsidian.

    End of season speculation: contrarian theory, no significant change to status quo. More Crystal Gems or a new villain arc, probably, but no radical changes to the core 4 or the way they operate.

    • Dylan Hysen says:

      Very interesting that those might be real gem names! And yeah no changes to the core 4 is a definite possibility.. I almost think it’s less of a favorite than a big change at this point. So much has been happening recently.
