StevenBomb 2 marked the beginning of a new airing time of Steven Universe at 11:00 p.m. UTC.
Cartoon Network confirmed the second StevenBomb beforehand via phone call.
The clip from "Cry for Help" introducing Pearl and Garnet's fusion was shown at SDCC 2015.
Promotional artwork for the first StevenBomb shows a panicked Steven running with a lit bomb in his hands. This is a reference to the film adaptation of the 1960s Batman series starring Adam West, in which Batman runs through a seaside town trying to get rid of a bomb.
The final episode of the second and third StevenBomb ("Chille Tid" and "Friend Ship") were both represented by a question mark in the promo art.
StevenBombs tend to act as a countdown to an apocalyptic scenario that is to occur in the future.
So far, almost all StevenBombs except the fifth and seventh have introduced a new fusion.
StevenBomb 1 reveals Garnet's status as a fusion, StevenBomb 2 introduces the Cluster Gems, StevenBomb 3 silhouettes an Unknown Fusion Gem, StevenBomb 4 reveals the result of a fusion of gems of the same type, and StevenBomb 6 reveals the concept of permanent Homeworld Gem fusions.
And, in each Bomb except the fifth, at least one fusion reappears.
