"The New Crystal Gems" was a lightweight comedic reprieve. Peridot in toilet bowl was cute. But it was the fluff tension reliever after the major arc building bomb.

And tension release fluff was needed before moving into the moody psychological set piece of "Storm in the Room". Rose in the room ... is how Steven thinks of his mother in all of its conflicted confusion ... but since, as Rose in the room pointed out, she (her gem, her essence) is within him, Rose in the room is perhaps somewhat more than that?
