Is it me or are the writers 'underplaying' her and Lapis? Take the Steven Goes Into Space Arc. Those two stayed behind. When I heard that, I thought I misheard or that Garnet's brain froze up. Things probably would have gone a bit smoother if Peridot had gone along for the simple fact she is current on all gem technology. Thankfully there wasn't much fighting but Lapis. . .the only unfused Gem to be able to beat Jasper would have made great back up.
Peridot would've been too scared, given how she reacted when she thought the Rubies were after her.
That's true. She is 'hyperexcitable' so probably not the best for covert operations. But with current Gem Tech, she should be used more.
I'm sure they will. I guess because has yet to display any real concern for any human other than Steven is why they didn't take her with them. Plus, the smaller the group, the better.
Well Peridot did say to Jasper that Earth is full of life so she does show concerns. She and Lapis have an opportunity that the Crystal Gems never took advantage of - Peridot and Lapis don't have to wait a few thousand years to truly interact with humans.
Yes, but remember how she acted towards Greg. And like I said; for an infiltration mission, a smaller team is better. And the Crystal Gems have much more experience as a team without Peridot.
I feel they can be using those two a lot more, but perhaps they're saving them for their own individual arc. Perhaps something with the two fusing, Garnet helping them or something since Lapis has had such horrible experiences and Peridot simply has never.
