Welcome to Season Five. Steven and Lars are stuck inside Topaz. Lars regrets running away and being afraid all the time while Steven’s plan of sacrificing himself has not come completely to fruition. Topaz, touched by Steven and Lars’s conversation tries to help them escape, but Aquamarine stops it. Topaz was going to destabilize Aqua, but would later face being shattered if they did.

Steven is set to go to “The Trial” and is given a blue zircon to help present his case—which is “I’m Rose Quartz and I shattered Pink Diamond even though as Steven I have no real idea how I did it.” Yellow Diamond wants to skip the formalities and shatter Steven, but Blue still wishes to know how Pink was shattered. While Yellow and Blue argue instead of making green, Steven and Lars escape in a blue palanquin and deep into Homeworld.

Steven and Lars try to evade the robonoids who can shoot and shatter rocks and gems, but not Lars as we will see. Steven and Lars come across a group of deformed gems called Off Colors. They include a six-gem fusion named Flourite, Padparadscha (a sapphire who can only see the past), a Rhodonite which has the opposite personality of Sardonyx, and conjoined Rutile twins. The Robonoids come, but Lars sums up his courage and helps destroy the Robonoids with Steven.

It seems as though Lars pays the ultimate sacrifice until Steven heals him, turns him pink, and gives him special powers in the process. Those special powers allow Steven to visit the dimension accessible through Lion’s mane. In fact, he can get out of Lion’s mane as well. So Steven can go inside “Lars’ Head” and come out through Lion’s mane. Steven offers the others come with him (apart from Lars who can’t go himself), but refuse and vow to look for another way instead of leaving Lars.

Steven comes back to the Crystal Gems, Greg, and Connie, and we have no idea when Season Five will continue. We also get no answers as to what really happened to Pink Diamond, either.

Obviously, the best part of this four-parter was when Lars summed up his courage in the third part. No matter how afraid you might be, sometimes you have to sum up your courage anyway. That’s been the Mane Six in MLP, that’s been Steven and the Gems in this show, that’s Lars now. You really have to give him credit for taking on the robonoids to save others to the point of sacrificing himself.

I would say that this was remarkable four-parter, but I cannot. “Stuck Together” and “The Trial” took too long to develop, though it leaves us with Blue Diamond determined to know the truth—which is probably why there was a trial in the first place. It also leaves many wishing that Aquamarine gets poofed in a later episode. We will certainly see the Diamonds (maybe White as well) and the Off Colors again, but the four-parter leaves us with more questions than answers. In fact, it didn’t give us any. Not even when the series will return to give us some answers.

Rebecca Sugar is “Shooting for the Moon” for Season Five (which was originally going to be the second part of Season Three before Cartoon Network Math split things up and made the first part Season Four). So while it gives Lars some purpose, some interesting new characters, and some intrigue; it left us no clue as to where things are going from here. That’s the most frustrating part.

GRADE:  B-
