Lars receives a letter from Steven updating him about the current goings-on in Beach City.
What madness is this? The residents of Beach City actually working to prepare themselves for the next time there is a Gem attack? About time! Just took them, OVER 100 episodes to become proactive. Seriously, though it’s good to see with Nanefua Pizza as Mayor episodes which feature the resident of the town won’t be such a worrisome thought. Who knows they may even prove to be indispensable the next time the homeworld Gems invade. Okay, the last sentence may be a bit too much wishful thinking.
Other than this important detail, the episode is just filled with little notes of interest. Pearl got a cell phone and fans are more than likely going to assume its for her to talk with the mysterious girl last seen in Last One Out Of Beach City. Peridot joined an improve troop with Mr. Smiley, Barb, and Amethyst. It’s good to see she found something to occupy her time after the departure of Lapis.
Also, with the return of Mayor Dewey, means the return of Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson to provide the characters voice. Always good to see the guest appearance actors checking in regularly so the characters feel just as entertaining as they did when they originally were introduced. Hopefully with this new opportunity for the character, Mr. Hodgson will be around more often to entertain the viewers.
All in all, it’s not a bad episode. Considering its one which entirely focuses on the residents of Beach City this is actually something of an accomplishment. Not every resident of the town has become Lars or Connie, who have become much more than they were on their initial introduction. Hopefully, more episodes in the future showcase this new sense of active movement in the residents of the town Steven Universe calls home.
