What a cute episode! Peridot It was great to see Peridot and learn more about her! She really loves her technology so the tablet was super cute!

We also learned that her size shows her "rarity and importance" but also that Homeworld is running out of resources so she does not have the same powers as older gems (such as the Crystal Gems) have. She thought she didn't have any powers. But then! She learned she can LEVITATE things! Whoa Strawberry It's becoming a misconception that Peridot can "metalbend". She's not metalbending - she's able to levitate items - the tablet just happened to be the first. When she played ring toss, those were plastic carnival rings, not metal rings.

Overall, cute episode and a good episode! Peridot Amethyst Steven La

I must say I agree,quite good episode.And we got alot of background info this episode.Peridot being an Era 2/Second Gen Peridot and that Homeworld is running out of resources might explain their mind set a bit.This makes me wonder if that is why Jasper was considered important,being a Era/Gen 1 Jasper.

I like Peridot getting a matter levitation ability.It will very much help her self esteem and confidence in the long term as it means she has something right now that makes her special,and perhaps will make her feel more helpful to the team beyond just her knowledge.

This could also mean that Peridot has no summon-able weapon per say,which would be fitting.She is a mental character,not a direct fighter.The telekinesis makes that more obvious and allows her to use her natural gift,her mind,to a more deadly effect.

I must have misheard it when they said "mental powers." I heard "metal powers," or something to that effect.

Still, a good 8/10. I laughed at Smiley saying, "I haven't seen a bed in six days." It reminded me of that scientist in Meet the Robinsons: "I haven't slept in eight days! I've got the caffeine patch!" The parts where they called themselves the "shorty squad," was the only part I didn't enjoy in any degree. The whole "sqaud" meme that goes around Snapchat, Instagram, or wherever has always annoyed me, but it was mentioned only a few times throughout the episode, and I can excuse it.

Peridot herself was cute, and her having a sort of telekinesis is pretty awesome.

I mean I can very well be wrong but those rings Peridot levitated certainly did not look metal. I guess we will have to wait and see in future episodes.

Perhaps her limb enhancements evolved, or she has a magnet embedded within her.

Or she's the Avatar. That's also a viable option. Winking Stawberry

This was a very cute episode! I kept expecting Amethyst to fuse with Peridot just so they could be tall enough to ride the roller coaster but I think giving Peridot a new power was awesome too! Grin Strawberry Can you imagine her torturing Steven with her new ability, like levitating things too high for him to reach even if he stretches his legs? xD I sense lots of silly shenanigans in the future Kitty Strawberry

Peridot is a TabletBender confirmed.

Though seriously, I loved this episode, it was super amusing and a nice breather after the events if the last episode.

Interesting to note.Given the fact that even on her "official" twitter Peridot said she can move metal with her mind this brings up a very curious wonder.Before she lost them how much of her powers were derived from her limb enhancers and how much was it from her natural metal manipulation abilities when she used them?The Blaster was clearly the enhancers,and maybe the electric current.But the helicopter fingers,walking up walls or even the tractor beam?Its possible Peridot had these powers all along,she just never took off her limb enhancers long enough to realize it.

Well if her Twitter says metal then she must be able to move metal. They should have made that ring toss game look closer to metal rings then. Hehe Strawberry

I feel this will definitely not be the end of 'The Shorty Squad' with their antics! I would definitely like to see more episodes involving them and getting into mischief, and also Peridot experimenting more with her new found power. Steven La Amethyst Peridot
