Beautiful Moments in Steven Universe
the Odyssey

The world is ugly. The attacks against racial equality, gender equality, LGBT+ rights, and immigration continues to fill up my news feed. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by all the negativity and the feeling that nothing could be done. Thankfully, Rebecca Sugar comforts and instills a sense of hope through Steven Universe. A whimsical children’s show, Steven Universe is renown for its many incredibly poignant and beautiful moments. Here’s a list that will renew your hope that life will be “alright”

  • Episode: It Could’ve Been Great
    Peridot transitioning from a society in which the only purpose of living is doing the role you were made has been such a heart-warming process. Steven patiently teaching Peridot about Earth was incredibly sweet but Peridot taking into heart what Earth meant for her for herself was beautiful. Seeing Peridot learn about peace and love made me have hope that people can change for the better.

  • Episode: The Answer
    The entire episode is simply a masterpiece. Not only is it a beautiful love story, but it also represents queer relationships and how incredibly difficult it is to be told what is acceptable and what is not. The way the episode depicted that love, no matter what people say or try to label, is important.

  • Episode: Gem Harvest
    Not a particularly emotional episode, but still an important one nonetheless as it deals with overcoming differences in family. Showing that Steven’s uncle comes from a different background and is quite stubborn, the episode depicts the struggle and joy of being a united family.

  • Episode: Lion 3: Straight to Video
    A particular favorite episode of mine because it is the first time seeing Steven’s mother, Rose, communicate (albeit in a video) to Steven. Because Steven can never meet his mother, receiving such an emotionally tender and downright beautiful message from his mother made me have faith in love again.

Hopefully Steven Universe makes you feel at peace like it did for me.
