Jinkies, a Scooby Doo episode? With Connie!? Well I'm sold! Gas up the Mystery Machine and let's go on a Gem Hunt!
It's not a Scooby Doo episode after all. It's Connie's first gem mission. Hey, that's even better!
Serious Connie. When Connie focuses intensely on something, she can be downright scary!
|"But it's Connie's first mission! Her parents asked me to take lots of pictures."|
|"I promise I won't let you down, ma'am!"|
Oh wow. Yup, get a picture of that one, Steven. The last Gem monster Connie's parents will ever allow her to face.
|"Oh, oh, I have an idea! We could split up!"|
No no no, don't split up! There's monsters out there and you want to split up? Connie, I thought... wait, I get it! If Pearl isn't directly watching then you can slip up a bit and she'll never know so she'll never be disappointed! Clever, Connie. Clever!
How can you say no to those faces? You can't. Even if you should.
|"And who's your favorite gem?" "Pearl..." "Why thank you!"|
You can't blame Pearl for trying. Connie wisely doesn't answer though, 'cause we all know who her favorite Gem is!
|"When civilization collapses and this world ends, I need to be ready to build the new one!"|
|"Forget Gems! Humans are already starting their own demise! Peak oil, Steven! How do we handle terminal decline without alternate energy sources?!"|
|"I don't really know how the corruption works. It's like they're sick. They don't remember who they used to be. Maybe they don't even know how to look like themselves anymore."|
This is great. Steven rolls down the hill like a 5-year-old, because he's wonderful. Connie snowboards down the hill on a plank of wood, because she's amazing.
|"Stance wide, body lowered. I've got it, ma'am." "♫Balance is the key♫"|
|"It's about surviving the punishment of nature."|
|"Unless it's just some guy in a monster suit. But that kind of thing only happens in cartoons. Usually over a property dispute."|
|"What if it's running... from itself?" "Shhhhh!"|
|"Connie, what are you doing!?" "I- I don't know! I wasn't prepared for this!"|
|"Steven! Connie! Is this because of the 'favorite gem' thing? That was just a joke! Don't tell Garnet."|
JASPER! Did Lapis punt her all the way to the arctic?
|"Hey Rose, look what I got!"|
But Jasper wins best smile. People have pointed out that these gems both look like varieties of Jasper. What would Jasper need with two more Jaspers?
Steven is never one to miss a good photo op.
Again. Again. Again. Again.
|"I thought I'd be ready to fight, but I wasn't! I failed!" "You weren't supposed to fight! You were supposed to call me, and you did. This was a total success!"|
|"Connie's first mission!" "Connie's first mission!"|
planned for those two gems she took. Maybe she's just going to chuck them through Steven's window late one night and let them regenerate? We'll find out soon on Steven Universe!
