On Steven Universe (5 PM), Steven takes Connie to Rose's Room to enact a new ending to a beloved book series.

Can we talk about how incredible last week's six episodes of Steven Universe were? The fact that the Thursday two parter did more in half an hour than some shows manage in two? Or the fact that this started as a show about a kid trying to use ice cream sandwiches to unlock his magic powers, and now it's something that I think belongs in the discussion for Hugo nominations?
