Reunited (Steven Universe)
WARNING! Spoilers ahead!
This article may reveal major plot points, especially considering the episode, season, or series had either been released recently or not in specific countries yet.
Reunited is the 23rd and 24th episode of the fifth season of Steven Universe, the 151st and 152nd episode overall, and the final episode in the seventh StevenBomb. It is a 22-minute special episode, excluding advertisements.
Steven brings everyone together for a special reunion, just in time for Ruby and Sapphire's wedding.
Why It Rocks
- This is everything that this show has been waiting for. It starts off very lighthearted; Ruby and Sapphire's wedding is a very long-awaited thing that was extremely enjoyable.
- The animation was great, as usual.
- The episode/special pretty much has everything you could ask for in a "Finale"-based episode.
- While Steven's song was bittersweet, it's still wonderfully sung.
- The entrance from Blue and Yellow Diamond was PERFECT. While we all knew they were arriving from the promos, the way they did so by using Blue's forced empathetic ability was brilliant.
- Not only that, we got to see the individual fighting stances of each gem, including the Diamonds. Lapis' entrance was (also) PERFECT.
- This episode went above and beyond. You could tell the creators went all out with this one.
- Lapis Lazuli's return. Enough said.
- Everyone gets the chance to shine in the episode. Outside of minor characters, every gem-related character get at least one good line.
The Only Bad Quality
- The cliffhanger was pretty sudden, leaving an empty feeling inside the veiwer.
- This is the third half-hour episode to air in the series (with the first being "Bismuth" and the second being "Gem Harvest") and the first to feature a song.
