When Steven visits Lapis and Peridot at the barn, they get an unexpected visit from Greg’s grumpy cousin Andy. To get to know his uncle and make him feel at home, Steven attempts to host a family dinner with Andy, Greg, and the Gems.
Greg tells Steven about his first winter as a baby: when Steven was only a few months old, the Gems were still struggling with learning to understand that Rose Quartz had given up her form to allow Steven to be born and wasn’t coming back.
Steven begins to have a strange dream that causes him to cry, which he quickly realizes is related to Pink Diamond. When he asks the gems to give him information about Pink Diamond, however, they refuse to give any, so Steven and Greg travel to Korea to find the truth themselves.
After Greg is abducted by Blue Diamond, Steven and the Gems rush off into space with the Rubies’ ship to rescue him. Faster-than-light travel has unexpected effects on the Gems’ bodies, and in Steven’s haste, he puts himself and the Gems in danger.
The Gems reach a space station that once belonged to Pink Diamond, and sneak in to rescue Greg, but in order to do so, they must play the roles they were made for, so as not to arouse suspicion.
Steven finds Greg in Pink Diamond’s “Human Zoo”, and tries to look for a way out. This proves easier said than done as the humans there are guided through a strictly scheduled and regimented life.
While Blue Diamond and Yellow Diamond argue over their diverging ways of coping with Pink Diamond’s death, Steven, Greg, and the Crystal Gems attempt to escape the space station before they are discovered.
