I think it was one of the absolute cutest Star episodes. Her voice felt different in a good way.
The kiss seemed actually natural to me, considering the circumstances in which it happened and the post-reactions both characters had after it. I'm really OK with it since Star's boy-crazyness and club-party self made clear from the Star that our ideas of purity were but delusions..
Also, did Rasticore just murdered the absolute shit out of those princesses? It's like they'll get to actually rise the stakes by the end of the season, in tone at least.
