Ever wondered what Steven would do as Lars? No? Well you're finding out regardless!
This is a weird episode to say the least, not bad, just not something I wanted, but here's it is, so yay? I honestly don't know what to say about this, it came, went, and that's it, maybe it's important later on, but at this moment, it's just a decent episode.

The premise this time is that Steven accidentally possesses Lars, which is fine, but I'm not sure anyone really wanted an episode like this. Sure, shows do not need to create episodes because fans demand them, after all, no one knows what they truly want all the time, but I just don't see why a filler episode would be made about this. The most I can say is that the writers thought it'd be funny to see Lars act nicer, which admittedly does bring some good jokes, especially from the parents, I just don't see the appeal beyond that.

We've already seen Steven possess another body, which makes the plot feel a bit redundant, as well as ridiculous when suddenly his empty body becomes the big issue of the episode. Steven left his body earlier this season, why would he now worry that he may be in trouble away from it? The episode offers no reason as far as I remember.

Then there's the stuff with Sadie, which while not bad, has been explored a lot better in other episodes. We seem to be inching closer and closer to their love being a thing, with Steven even trying to set it in motion, which is fine I guess, but I've seen it done before making it a little less impactful here. The worst thing though, is that their possible love here feels very much forced, almost as if they're only being shipped for the fans, Lars just comes off that rude. There's a joke that everyone but Sadie, likes the new Lars, which makes sense, Lars is a jerk, that this episode doesn't make him possibly likable to Sadie hurts it a lot. 

I had some good laughs this time, I can admit that much, but beyond the jokes, this was an idea best left unexplored. As I close this I must ask again, who actually wanted this?
