It just kinda hit me, but I think Future is the first time since S1 that Steven has actually felt fallible. I can't think of many episodes since that first season where the plot was driven by Steven fucking up or getting in over his head about something. Yeah, there was his brief falling out with Connie, but that didn't cause any actual problems for the other characters.
Also, Anne is super hyped about being there. Hope she has fun.
