According to the trailer, the Crystal Gems (Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl) will fuse together as Alexandrite and do battle against Malachite (the powerful fusion of Jasper and Lapis Lazuli) after escaping from her prison in the bottom of the sea. Meanwhile, Steven and Peridot travel deep underground as “The Cluster” currently incubating in the Earth’s mantle remains to be a threat and more unwelcome gems visit Earth as Peridot contacted Yellow Diamond.
