* ScreensAreCameras: Peridot face on the big screen looks ''downward'' at the Crystal Gems at its base, which wouldn't require the camera and screen Peridot is looking at to be at a low angle.


* LuredIntoATrap: Once Peridot knows the Crystal Gems can track her, she lures them to an old gem space ship whose internal defenses she turns against them. She then pulls a smaller scale trap by putting a {{Hologram}} of herself on top of a TrapDoor, which Pearl keeps attacking even after realizing is fake.

* RealityEnsues: Even if a number of the space-ship's systems are functional enough to work as a trap for the Crystal Gems, a lot of them are still broken. For example, at one point, Steven has to brush the plants off a communication crystal so Peridot can hear him. Peridot also has trouble working the ship systems because she barely understands the relatively archaic technology, damage or no damage. When Peridot and the Gems are speaking over the communicator, there's actually a second of latency between when Steven talks and when Peridot responds. If you listen closely, you can hear Pearl and Steven's words repeat over on Peridot's end of the chat.


* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Peridot shows she can use a TractorBeam and has an ArmCannon. Sardonyx is also shown to turn her hammer into a drill. Peridot's briefly dumbfounded reaction after firing the ArmCannon implies that she's never used her arm-enhancements that way before and was a bit shocked at how powerful it was.

The moment you've been waiting for- the finale of the Week of Sardonyx.

The gems find Peridot at the Galaxy Warp. They prepare to attack her, but the overeager and desperate for forgiveness Pearl ruins it, resulting in Peridot getting away. They are later able to track her to an old, abandoned gem ship. They assume Peridot is using it to get away, but she actually has something different in mind. She knew the gems were tracking her (because Steven told her), and lured them to the ship to make use of its old but still somewhat functional traps. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice job breaking it, Steven]].

An ancient ship is explored by the Gems, but it turns out to be a trap set by Peridot, who wants to end the Gems once and for all. Meanwhile, Pearl is determined to win back Garnet's trust by catching Peridot, and their falling-out comes to a dramatic head.

The group attempt to make their way through
the Gems, but it turns out ship and to be a trap set by Peridot, who wants to end the Gems once but on their way there, Garnet and for all. Meanwhile, Pearl fall down a trapdoor into a small room (Amethyst saves herself and Steven with her whip). Garnet and Pearl are fine for the moment, but that won't be for long, as TheWallsAreClosingIn. While attempting to fight the deathtrap (with Steven and Amethyst helping by using her whip to halt the mechanism behind it for a while), Garnet and Pearl have a heart-to-heart about what happened.

Pearl apologizes for her mistakes, saying that she only did it because she wanted Garnet to forgive her. She reveals that she deceived Garnet to keep fusing because she
is determined extremely insecure, and believes that as "just a Pearl" she'll never live up to win back Garnet's trust power, confidence, and composure. Fusing into Sardonyx is the only way she gets to feel that confidence.

Garnet responds that there is nothing Pearl can do to make Garnet forgive her for what she's done, and tells her that Garnet isn't the paragon of strength that Pearl thinks she is. The turmoil that Pearl caused
by catching tricking Garnet caused Ruby and Sapphire to have their greatest argument in millennia. Garnet has problems and insecurities too, she just hides them better. In fact, sometimes she looks up to ''Pearl'' for strength.

After that, Amethyst's whip breaks, and the walls begin closing in again. There is only one way out, but Garnet and Pearl need to both agree on it. Cue the triumphant return of Sardonyx, drilling her way out of the room. The Crystal Gems then make it to
Peridot, who immediately tries to bug out. Steven manages to hang on to her foot, but she detaches it and their falling-out comes to a dramatic head.flies away, now with only one foot.
