Are You My Dad Steven was still really annoying, not just for getting stuck in a tree though another example of Steven really getting under my skin, but also for not realizing the obvious. He spends all day looking for his friends and then sees a gem and instead of connecting the dots that she was related to the sudden disappearances, I'd even give him a gold star if he remembered Yellow saying "There's still time..." right in front of him, but no instead he's wondering about her dad and hilariously stupid lines like>We got to get to the bottom of this. We split up and investigate.>[Gasps] Ruby and Sapphire!> ... I meant split into teams.
He acted braindead throughout the episode. And I'm not really sure if I can blame Steven specifically, all the Crystal Gems were acting braindead. S1 they're terrified of Homeworld but then S4 Navy fucks off obviously to inform her Diamond what has happened and Garnet's like "ah well." I can at least say Steven was a lot better in the following episode.
