''Steven Universe'' has a ''very'' strong continuity. There are many story arcs and references to earlier episodes, and sometimes things that happened ages ago will be brought back into the spotlight. Outside of broken items magically being fixed again, and contradicting summer/fall seasons in seasons 3 and 4, this show has very few continuity errors.

''Steven Universe'' has a ''very'' strong continuity. There are many story arcs and references to earlier episodes, and sometimes things that happened ages ago will be brought back into the spotlight. Outside of broken items magically being fixed again, the missing Mr. Universe shirt in "Bismuth", and contradicting summer/fall seasons in seasons 3 and 4, this show has very few continuity errors.

Added DiffLines:

** It should also be noted that we have yet to receive an exact value on how strong Garnet is. There's nothing to suggest that she definitely ''isn't'' strong enough to poof a Peridot, so this isn't ''necessarily'' a retcon.

Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, Mr. Smiley mentioned enforcing "another" lifetime ban in response to Peridot's behavior towards him, so it's not like he forgot about the first one altogether.


* At the end of the episode, Garnet's comment that "we kept Amethyst" becomes an important call-forward to the information we learn in "On the Run."

to:

* At the end of the episode, Garnet's comment that "we kept Amethyst" is treated like a joke, but actually becomes an important call-forward to the information we learn about her backstory in "On the Run."

* The Crystal Gems are trying to prepare themselves for the Homeworld gems to return to Earth.

to:

* The Crystal Gems are trying to prepare themselves for the Homeworld gems to return to Earth. \n Steven even notices the Quartzine Trio hidden under a tarp.


Added DiffLines:

* The laser light cannon from its debut episode returns, along with the Quartzine Trio debuting in Lion 2, named in Rose's Scabbard, and foreshadowed in the last episode. The four cannons form a quartet.
** While on the subject of Laser Light Cannon, this episode contains many parallels to that episode:
*** The episode starts with Steven eating fry bits.
*** Once the threat in the sky makes itself known, Steven meets the gems on the beach where they're observing with a telescope.
*** Steven has an awkward car ride with his father
*** The threat in the sky causes the lighting to change more and more as it gets closer
*** Some motifs return like the cannon's when it fires. The beginning of "Return to the Beach/Jasper" is reminiscent of the music that plays in the climax of Laser Light Cannon.


Added DiffLines:

* Opal returns since her debut episode.

Added DiffLines:

* Steven rattles off everything the Crystal Gems have done to the Rubies so far since their first encounter.



to:

* Locations relevant to Rose are visited again when Steven tries to find out what the key opens, including the secret armory, Rose's Fountain (both of which haven't been seen since season 1), and Rose's Room.
