In case you missed it, Rebecca Sugar took to the internet waves last evening and conducted an AMA on Reddit. As usual we bring you a text version, but of course click source to head over to the actual thread. While Ms.Sugar kept the spoilers to herself, there are a few tidbits of unknown details hidden, such as the following:
Q. Hi, Rebecca! Had a question that’s sorta left ambiguous in the show. How much does the populous know about the gems, or other magical things? I’m sure most everyone knows about the monsters, or at least they saw the giant Red Eye, but do most people know that there’s a bunch of super ladies who live at the end of the beach? Also, do you think that the gem temple is a big tourist attraction? (Officer_Milky)
A. The Earth in the show is an alternate timeline for Earth, with a history that involves Gems… people have a different relationship to supernatural things, they’re vaguely aware, but they keep their distance… When our Gems do their job right, people don’t have to know anything is wrong… Our Gems interacting with people is a recent development that has everything to do with Steven.
I know since the series has started I’ve questioned if the show was taking place on an alternative earth, actual earth, or a random earth like planet, namely as people do not react in horror when encountering gem activity nor any government presences. Enough with the neckbearding though.
This evening at 6:30pm ET the show returns to the airwaves with episode 102 – Coach Steven. While this is a fresh episode for the US side of the border, the episode did air in Canada several weeks ago and made the usual “sharing” rounds on the internet. Thankfully it seems we will also get new episodes, weekly, for a period of time. We already have a new synopsis.
SUN Episode 121: Joking Victim – “When Lars convinces Sadie to do all of his work, Steven helps by taking a shift at the Big Donut.”
