The episode takes place after the Connie and Steven fight ends and highlights their first adventure back together, as well as their first space adventure together. The animators were brilliant in their keeping Connie’s hair up in the promos, as it hid her new, shorter hair style debuted in the previous episode “Kevin Party”.
