When they got there, the spaceship was still far and it's already leaving. The Crystal Gems watches while hiding on the grass.

Pearl replies that she is watching the spaceship. Steven asks where Amethyst is, and Pearl tells Steven that Amethyst is buying donuts for him. But before Pearl could finish speaking, a purple cat carrying donuts enters the house. The cat shape-shifts back into Amethyst. Steven was excited because he sees donuts, but then Amethyst says that the donuts are for her and not for him. Steven felt sad, but Amethyst said that she was just joking and gives Steven the donuts.

Meanwhile, Peridot and Feldspar are navigating and operating the ship. Onyx on the other hand, is pretending to help and accepts their orders. Then Feldspar leaves the navigation room and ordered Onyx to take over, Onyx thought this is the right time to do her plans. Onyx also leaves the room and asks Peridot to take over for a minute. Peridot complains but still accepts.
Onyx follows Feldspar and stopped near a wall. She summons a Gem Destabilizer and attempts to use it against Feldspar. Feldspar slowly walks by and Onyx follows her. Onyx quickly thrust the Gem Destabilizer but misses. Feldspar looks at her back and kicks Onyx. Onyx stands up and grabs the Gem Destabilizer and prepares for Feldspar's attacks. Feldspar also summons the same weapon and prepares to attack. Feldspar runs swiftly and attacks Onyx with the Gem Destabilizer, but Onyx blocks her attack using the same weapon creating a orb and explodes. The explosion swept away both of them, and disturbed Peridot.
While there was still smoke and debris, Feldspar punches Onyx instead of using her weapon. Onyx attempts to pick up the Gem Destabilizer but Feldspar instead picks up Onyx. Onyx is struggling to escape Feldspar's grip. So, Onyx summons a hammer from her chest hitting Feldspar in the face. Onyx picks up the Gem Destabilizer and throws the hammer at Feldspar. Onyx stabs her with the Gem Destabilizer and retreated back into her gem. Onyx picks up her gem and hides it in her pocket.
Peridot got worried and went to search for the two. When she enters where the two gems battled, she sees debris. Peridot hears a loud stepping noise, when she turned back she sees Onyx pointing a Gem Destabilizer at her. Peridot raises her hands up and surrenders. Onyx orders Peridot to land back to Earth near the Crystal Temple while pointing the gun at her back. Peridot tries to land the spaceship near the Crystal Temple.
Garnet sees this action and calls the other crystal gems. The crystal gems summons their weapon and orders Steven to stay in the house. They jumped off the balcony and lands in the sand. The Crystal Gems, along with Steven, watches as the spaceship comes down. Suddenly, the spaceship fell into the water. The crash made huge waves that covered the whole shoreline with water, even the Crystal Gems were swept away by the water. Peridot and Onyx were weak from the fall. Onyx picks up the Gem Destabilizer and comes toward Perdiot. Peridot summons a Gem Destabilizer and points it at Onyx. Onyx kicks away Peridot's weapon and warns her that not make any plans. Onyx grabs Peridot's arm and drags her away from ran away from the rising water.
Pearl wondered why they went underwater, and then Garnet thought that they might be looking for Jasper and Lapis. The Crystal Gems went into the water while Steven comes down into the beach and watches what happen to them. Onyx summons her hammer and smashes her way through the wall. The water gushes through them and got carried away while Onyx accidentally let go of Peridot. The Crystal Gems sees the ship sinking and went inside it. Peridot tries to swim away from Onyx but Onyx grabbed her in her feet. Pearl sees them throws a spear at them but missed. Then bubbles started coming out of the ship and Peridot and Onyx floated up into the surface.
Steven was amazed and asks himself if that was another gem and runs near them. Onyx swims towards the shore and throws Peridot into the sand. Steven got blown away by the sand when Peridot hits the sand. Onyx stands up and holds Peridot's arm. Steven runs towards them again, then the Crystal Gems jumped out of the water and lands on shore. Garnet, Pearl, and Amethyst surrounds the two unarmed gems. Onyx surrenders to the Crystal Gems and said that she brought a prisoner.
The Crystal Gems are still not sure if Onyx really is an ally or an enemy. So, Onyx thought that they should give them Feldspar's gem. Onyx shows the gem, Peridot and the Crystal Gems were surprised. Especially Peridot, because she thought Feldspar would defeat Onyx easily. Garnet picks up the gem from Onyx's hand, bubbles it and it teleported to the temple. Garnet is still not sure, but helps Onyx stand up. Amethyst summons her whip and wraps it around Peridot. The gems went inside Steven's house to have a chat.
