    I didn't find the episode "Escapism" that confusing; back in Watermelon Steven, Baby Melon sacrificed himself to stop the other melons from fighting, and Steven told them all to leave and not come back until they understand Baby Melon's sacrifice. We then see in Super Watermelon Island how the Watermelons have created a civilization around pacifism. Later on in the episode, Steven, in the body of one of the melons, rallies them all to fight against Malachite to protect their home and loved ones.
    In Escapism, we see the fallout of these actions; the Watermelon people have split into two societies, one focused on the memory of Baby Melon and pacifism, one focused on Steven rallying them to fight. Both tribes recognize Steven as the creator of their ideologies (telling them to understand Baby Melon's sacrifice, making them fight against Malachite) and the two tribe leaders each want Steven to join their tribe.
    Steven, however, doesn't care about any of it and just want to build a boat to get to Beach City. We then see how members of each tribe decide to stop their conflict and help Steven, and we see how symbols of power in both tribe are needed to complete the boat. This shows another message of the show; how both total pacifism and aggression are bad. You must be willing to stand up for and defend what you care about, but violence isn't always needed to do so. You need a balance between the two. The two sides can also be seen as representations of Steven's human and gem side and how, like we saw in Change Your Mind, Steven needs both parts.

    It's really annoying when people do recaps or reviews on shows they didn't watch.

    I wouldn't mind a full season 6 of just Steven and a bunch of the new healed gems doing gem stuff. More filler episodes, I guess?

    The watermelons were in previous episodes! Island Adventure shows the island (Mask Island) before the watermelons show up. Watermelon Steven shows how they were originally made. Super Watermelon Island (with the fight against Malacite) shows watermelon culture developing, and Escapism shows, um, the watermelons learning how to build boats. Oh no Steven! You've shown them how to explore the world!

    I think pearl didn’t love love her, but she loved the freedom she’s given her and the hope that she can be her own self. She may have loved her like Greg but I think it was more like a love of who she is and what she’s done for her.
