- Upon learning what Steven is, Blue Diamond tells Steven he has two options; die fighting, or surrender and die for the sins of his mother and Earth and it's inhabitants will be spared. She'll even sweeten the deal and send Lars safely home. Yellow Diamond however will not go along with it.

- Dewey loses the election.
- Lion goes missing in this episode.
- Dewey's campaign deals with Gem-related issues.
- A new character is introduced.
- The episode takes place right after Lars' Head.
- In the event that the episode doesn't take place right after Lars' Head and the episode is actually being aired out-of-order, it features any of the Spoiler characters such as:

- We learn how Dewey became mayor to begin with, including a young Buck helping him campaign with hand drawn posters. It ends with Mayor Dewey, with encouragement from Steven, finding a new resolve to try and win the election; to thank Buck for helping him win in the first place all those years ago onstage after winning.

- Legs From Here To Homeworld:
- Steven uses his powers to call for help from Lars (we know from the promo that he reacts when Connie laments that she has no one to call on her phone even if it worked on Homeworld)
- Battle Of Heart And Mind:
- The plot will reveal that White Diamond never cares about healing the corrupted Earth Gems.
- Lapis just holds too much malice towards the Gems and Peridot to consider joining them. She only really cares about Steven, so she may be inclined to help him when he needs it, but nothing more. She will probably end up living on her own, either somewhere on Earth, or possibly on the moon.
- Likely to be jossed for Lapis.
- Hilariously enough, Lapis does live on the moon for a time, but not out of any animosity towards the Crystal Gems.
- Jasper is a loyal soldier to Homeworld, who even fought in the war for Earth. If she didn't change her views then, she won't now.
- Jasper's part is confirmed, as she does continue refusing to get along with the Crystal Gems even into Era 3.
- It is also possible it refers to the series first season. But that later season may start to show some antagonists.
- This has never been stated by the show's staff, though.
- The show already isn't just about the Gems fighting monsters though. There are adversities in the form of internal conflicts and interactions between the characters, which wouldn't necessarly be improved too much if a villain was added. If anything villains might lower it by taking the focus away from Steven and the Gem's interactions and more towards besting a new foe. A Big Bad could work, especially if it were handled like Gravity Falls where they often tie into the theme of the episode, but as it stands this apparant White-and-Grey Morality (or possibly Gray-and-Grey Morality, depending on where the Crystal Gems fall under) set up by the introductions of Lapis Lazuli and Perdiot seem more likely of a direction it's heading in.
- Sort of confirmed with the appearance of Homeworld Gems such as Peridot and Jasper that are hard to construe as anything but villains and are involved in a long-term plot arc.
- Also possible that the "won't have a villain" part is to be understood as not having a villain, as in, a single entity which once defeated somehow rights all wrong and unspoils spoiled milk. Even if the show does go somewhat in sync with the WMG of Yellow Diamond being the leader and wanting to destroy/conquer/something Earth, all the show has to do to keep its promise is to show that YD is not the problem, but instead the mentality that her leadership (or whoever started it) has ingrained in gemkind is the true bad; to the point that all defeating YD can possibly do is create a power void that will quickly fill itself with another gem and the whole issue will remain unsolved.
- Although future character development could change this, Peridot and Jasper seem fairly conventionally villainous so far.
- Peridot's becoming much more sympathetic. Jasper is still the most villainous character though.
- Seemingly confirmed, with the Cluster taking the role of unwitting Big Bad.
- Going with the idea that the corrupted Gems were originally the Gems made in the Kindergarten. Earth was one of the first few planets to be used to artificially create Gems. After being created by the Homeworld Gems, they quickly became corrupted because they were created unnaturally (at least to Gemkind). The Homeworld Gems eventually abandoned them and let them roam Earth on their own because they were too volatile, as the case with Amethyst, who was one of the last to be created and found before she could become corrupted. The Crystal Gems (mostly Rose) were horrified by this and stayed on Earth to not only save the humans, but the corrupted Gems, too. As soon as they find a way to uncorrupt them and turn them to normal, these Gems will naturally hold a grudge against their creators who threw them away and fight against them with the Crystal Gems.
- And if they're going for Symbolism there, the Fusion might be called Seraphinite.
- Jossed, at least on the Heroic Sacrifice part.
- These Fusions will happen when Steven reaches the apex of friendship with each of them.
- If Steven Fuses with Lars, the Fusion will be called Stars.
- There don't seem to be any clingy weapons or body implants in Connie's near future, but she's learning how to fight with Rose's Sword, with "Nightmare Hospital" showing that she's actually quite good with it.
- The Messianistic themes have been played to the hilt for her, but in spite of how good and wonderful she is, she was still a general, and a leader of a resistance movement. We're heading for a massive Broken Pedestal moment.
- Confirmed. Rose bubbled Bismuth and never told the others what happened, and shattered Pink Diamond to save Earth. And then "A Single Pale Rose" reveals an even darker side to Rose where we find out that she was Pink Diamond all along and faked her shattering, leading to the remaining Diamonds launching their corruption attack on Earth!
- After all, Steven has nothing against squares. He's fond of all basic shapes.
- I kind of expect something like this to happen just because of how the show tends to be, action tends to be the exception rather then the rule. I can certainly imagine Steven at least trying to settle things peacefully.
- While the pod was seen banged up, it seems very odd that Steven caused it to act the way it did from just banging it. Plus shortly after it closes it's window, Steven the control energy.... whatever is seen disappearing from around his hands. She may not have expected Steven to happen upon the pod when he did but she used it to her advantage. Steven nearly getting iced by Garnet was just icing for her.
- Probably jossed; Not only does Homeworld not know that the CGs are still alive, Pearls are supposed to be servants, so there's a very slim chance that a Homeworld Pearl could act like our Pearl.
- Or an even more tragic variant: All but one of this squad has been shattered. The lone survivor... the Centipeetle.
- Considering we've been introduced to Bismuth, there's a possibility we might get something like this.
- Why not both? Rebuilding the Homeworld Warp would let her go on trips freely while still living with the Crystal Gems.
- Alternatively, Peridot will go to the convention intentionally and have a blast. Since Peridot is now a fangirl and a shipper, Peridot might simply find new tv series to be interested in including parodies of Star Trek, Babylon 5, and Doctor Who. She'll learn about fandoms off-screen and drag Steven with her to this universe's version of World Con, where hijinks will ensue.
- 1. She will be a rich girl using high tech gadgets hunting Gem as a hobby. The Gems are will pretty Gems, and she being a bored rich girl who will collect them for fun. She will hunt the gems as sport of view them as rivals for gem collecting. Or
- 2. She will be hunting them as revenge for a Corrupted Gem hurting her or her family. With her next to target being the CG or something. She will be a 2-3 episode enemy. In the first episode she an the gems will be tracking the same corrupted gem and cross paths. Steven suggest the team up, with the hunter turning on them later. The 2nd episode will the have the Hunter in beach city. And since the Gems will not harm a human, Steven and Connie will have to deal with her. At the same time the hunter will learn more about the town and the gems. Ronaldo will fall for her. The Hunter will eventually mellow out and leave to continue hunting corrupted gems else were.
- 1. Garnets episode will be the sequel to Garnets Universe and WILL show what she really dose on her solo missions.
- 2. Pearls episode will have her training and teaching Steven about stuff
- 3. Amethyst's episode will be dealing with her past, a flash back, or a night out on the town.
- Arguably confirmed. OP is not counting the episodes the individual gems have one-on-one time with Steven. For example:
- Both "Steven the Sword Fighter" and "Rose's Scabbard" feature Pearl 'training and teaching Steven about stuff.'
- "Tiger Millionaire" shows what Amethyst does with nearly all her free nights. (Wrestle) "Maximum Capacity" and "On the Run" both deal with her past.
- The Garnet WMG is the only episode that hasn't happened yet.
- The fusion of Amethyst and Ruby will be almost identical to Jasper. If she actually is another Jasper, her name won't be revealed in that episode.
- This would be a chance to see what Ruby and Sapphire are like as individuals rather than components of Garnet, and how they act when parted.
- It would also be interesting to have those pairs the other way round, and put the Hot-Blooded Ruby with the calmer Pearl, and the wild Amethyst with the level headed Sapphire.
- I don't know if this confirms the theory on a degree, but White Diamond manages to remove Steven's gem in a way it doesn't crack, and instead of Rose/Pink materializing, it's the full gem side of Steven.
- Jossed. Everything is correct except that the Cluster IS Gem in origin.
- It will take place while Connie is pregnant, with her parents and Greg moving in to help her and Steven is a Gem warrior working on an intergalactic scale years after the conflict with the Homeworld. The Gem monsters will have been cured and the Gem clusters returned to normal. Earth is now a center for benevolent Gem activity, with the Gems having integrated and the planet being a galactic super power. Greg will make a joke about how old he's getting to Steven who will start worrying over the lifespan of his human family and over his soon to be born child.
- The episode will take place after the birth of Steven and Connie's child, who will be introduced to the Gems. The Gems will be lamenting Steven moving out of the temple when this happens and Steven will pick up on it, leading him to ask them to look after his child for a little bit so they can cheer up. The child will keep getting into mischief around the temple while the Gems try to keep it safe, leading them to become Badly Battered Babysitters.
- It's a cute idea, but wouldn't the existence of such an episode kill the tension of all future battles, since we know for a fact that all our heroes are going to be okay?
- Perhaps it'll be a "What If?" story.
- He speaks an apparent alien tongue talking about summoning psychic ghost powers, which is similarly actually shown in Horror Club.
- He knocks Steven out (who has shown above human strength in the show) effortlessly, WITH A POTATO.
- He even mentions Level 8 Beings stating as a race they cannot normally organize well. And what have we seen of Gems in the series without their leaders to lead them? IE Rose or Yellow Diamond's absences.
- The arc we're in now will culminate in Peridot's redemption and betrayal of Yellow Diamond.
- Steven will look into Malachite's dreams again and discover that Jasper is slowly losing her malice towards him, primarily because now she's just trying to free herself from Lapis' control. Steven will then see that Lapis has become almost as bad as Jasper after having trapped her for so long and then convince her to let her go. Both Lapis and Jasper will be so exhausted at that point that they'll poof and remain in their gem forms for an entire episode or arc.
- In the final battle against Yellow Diamond, Steven will observe that at one time she must have been a better person than she is now and will offer her a chance at redemption like he gave to Lapis, Peridot and Jasper. Yellow Diamond will consider it for a moment, but then refuse, deciding that it's too late for her to redeem herself and that the only chance Steven has to stop her is to destroy her in battle. Steven will do so, however reluctantly, and as she dies, Yellow Diamond's thoughts will turn to the Homeworld Gems. Her last words will be "Take care of them, Steven".
- Considering Message Received, her attitude towards Earth and her reaction to Peridot calling her a clod, she probably will be beyond hope.
- Interesting idea, but having a black character as an Evil Counterpart to a white character would probably be seen by some as racist, so it's not likely they'll do it. Not to mention that so far, there don't really seem to be any inherently evil kinds of gems, so if there was a Jet, and she was evil, it wouldn't be portrayed as coming from inherent qualities that all Jets share.
- And then the Crewniverse would be getting death threats from both the Westboro Baptist Church AND the Russian government. In the latter case, it would be cruel irony that Steven Universe could start World War III, and the literal end of Earth over a lesbian kiss.
- Death threats from the Russian government because of a lesbian kiss? When did they ever issue death threats for trivialities such as that? The Russian government has better things to do. And the notion about World War III because of a lesbian kiss is even more ridiculous. I've heard a lot of lunacy left and right, but this takes the cake by a wide margin.
Steven: I told you, I'm not Rose, I'm-
Jasper: It doesn't matter what your name is!
- Confirmed as of the Jungle Moon.
- Interesting, but I don't know if Amethyst would necessarily be more willing to believe it than the others, give that Rose was sort of a mother figure to her.
- When Peridot said Amethyst could do anything a normal quartz could do, she was probably referring to the fact that she had just summoned a weapon strong enough to cut through the old drill head. I don't think it meant that she actually wasn't still weaker as a result of being miniature. That being said, Amethyst's difference in strength vs a full-sized quartz might not be 1:1 proportional (she might be, say, 60% as strong despite only 30% the size), and regardless of that she could still use her smaller size to her advantage when fighting a full-sized quartz, even if she is substantially weaker.
- Most likely reluctantly.
- Or, out of extreme anger because she wanted to destroy everything he loves and stands for.
- Less likely now she knows the truth.
- I've been feeling this would happen, too. She seems to view fusing as gaining more power, and she did kinda sorta fall behind the Earth's crust...and we haven't heard from her since. It's only a matter of time before she shows up and causes a whole heap of trouble.
- Shaping up to be this.
- Drop Beat Dad:
- Marty comes back.
- Greg tries to embrace other kinds of music, like beat boxing.

- Similar to "Hit the Diamond", the episode will not be a deep, lore-filled episode.
- It'll be about a farm.
- It'll be about an apple farm, as a Call-Back to "Fusion Cuisine" (and may possibly have Alexandrite in it, to complete the reference).
- The episode will take place during the fall, thus the need for harvesting crops.
- Thanks to Steven carving out a pumpkin in front of him, "Veggiehead" will try to keep him away from Lapis and Peridot.
- It'll be yet another "starts off cute before going horribly dark" Wham Episode, and it'll have a Double-Meaning Title to boot. Come on, it's a thirty minute special, it can't all be cute. Also, considering what the last half-hour episode brought with it, something big must be going down. A Mood Whiplash conversation may also occur, plunging us into the dark side of the episode. It may sound something like this:
- There'll be a new Fusion.
- There'll be a new Gem.
- We learn what Peridot meant by "You're going to harvest me?!"
- Harvesting Gems will be/be related to the purge Jasper mentioned in "Earthlings".
- Peridot starts her own collection of hunted Gem monsters, but comes up with the idea of using the corrupted Gems to power Gem tools. This causes a serious rift between the Crystal Gems over whether or not it's right to imprison the non-sentient Gem monsters within tools to gain an advantage.
- The pro side will be Peridot, Garnet and Amethyst and the anti side will be Steven, Pearl and Lapis.
- Greg's aunt and/or uncle, the previous owners of the barn, will appear.

- I Am My Mom:
- If none appeared in the previous episode, here will be new Gems.
- Partially Confirmed because Bismuth is the one who poofed Lapis, but also Jossed because, unless she makes a future appearance, Lapis didn't get a chance to meet Bismuth.
- Alternatively, Jasper takes Steven because she believes he's her ticket off Earth, and takes Connie so she won't blab to the Gems.
Like what you would do with rock candy.
- Perhaps instead, when Yellow Diamond encourages them to "finishes it" Stevonnie instead lets her go as a show of mercy, which will baffle Yellow Diamond. She will demand to know why they didn't finish her off when they had the chance, whereupon Stevonnie will give her a speech that would make her really reconsider everything she's done as a Diamond.
- Confirmed, but she comes with Blue Diamond as well.
- Considering the show, I imagine it would be really subtle, like Steven mentioning that some parts of the Crying Breakfast Friends fandom have been "Getting really toxic lately".
Crystals can resonate due to the nature of their lattices; the homogeneous nature of the lattice means that it will be identical all throughout the crystal... except where the corruption is. This would mean that resonating the crystal will cause pressure to build up between the gem itself and the corruption tied to it, causing the two to break apart. This is where Greg, an expert in audio, comes in.
Once the corruption is broken away from the crystal's lattice, the gem itself needs to heal, hence Steven's gift finishing the work that Greg and Priyanka started.
- Confirmed with Doug Out.
- Alternatively, Steven may use his dream abilities.
- If what happened to Jasper is any indication of what happens when a Gem tries to fuse with a Corrupted Gem... It's not gonna happen.
- Steven is half-human, so Corruption might be different for him than it is for a full Gem, if it even affects him at all.
- If what happened to Jasper is any indication of what happens when a Gem tries to fuse with a Corrupted Gem... It's not gonna happen.
- Perhaps, after the Diamonds are taken care of, she will return as the next villain, similar to Kuvira.
- Alternatively, when Homeworld invades Earth, they'll find out the Cluster has been neutralized. Rather than taking humans to the zoo, White Diamond will override Yellow Diamond's plan to destroy Earth and instead choose to exterminate all carbon-based life on the planet and turn it into a massive planet-killing weapon which they will then sell to the highest bidder. Furious, Steven unbubbles Bismuth and gives her the authority to use the Breaking Point, now viewing the Homeworld Gems as an absolute evil that needs to be destroyed.
- Big issue: Steven destroyed the Breaking Point. Besides, I don't think that STEVEN of all characters would get that angry.
- Confirmed in "Made of Honor".
In the event Bismuth IS redeemed, perhaps the first real character bonding she could have would be having to bond with a defected Homeworld Gem she WOULD have shattered had she been on Earth at the time and coming to see her as an equal, combining their abilities to create incredible weapons (and maybe armor) for the Crystal Gems.
- Not entirely sure if it counts as Homeworld, but they did have to go to the Zoo to rescue Greg.
Perhaps they'll even find a way to turn it into a more combat capable vessel with the wreckage of the Gem Warship, or Peridot will somehow turn it into an Ace Custom.
- At least partly confirmed. The Roaming Eye played an important role during the Gems rescue mission to retrieve Greg from the human zoo.
- Kind of more confirmed? By the end of "Room For Ruby", Navy has retaken the ship, presumably to rescue her crew and/or head back to Homeworld.
- This other Rose Quartz will be almost the complete opposite of the main Rose: cold, ruthless, and unflinchingly loyal to the Diamonds.
- Other Rose will be created by Homeworld as a countermeasure against Steven once they learn of his involvement in the foiling of their plans. Forcing him to fight someone who looks exactly like his mom would cause him significant mental trauma, especially since he knows next to nothing of what she's really like.
- Except that, even if they are the same gem, it is likely that she won't be identical or even that similar to our Rose. You can see this with the Pearls and even some of the Rubies have differences.
- Rose's rebellion left such a mark on Gem society that her entire type has become a symbol of revolution on Homeworld. As a result, any remaining Rose Quartz are mistrusted and discriminated against, if not shattered outright, and the creation of new ones is forbidden out of fear they'll turn out just like her.
- Confirmed. It's gone so far that every Rose Quartz besides ours was poofed and bubbled, and, if not for Blue Diamond keeping them as a keepsake, shattered.
On the other hand, the Crystal Gems may discover a way to safely remove the Cluster from inside the Earth, and it will be unbubbled in this way. Since Steven showed it kindness and allowed its components to make friends with one another, it will express its gratitude by fighting on the side of the Crystal Gems, acting as a guardian to the Earth and preventing Homeworld's forces from getting close enough to be a threat.
- Confirmed. It is unbubbled by the Diamonds, but it fights against them before entering in its dormant state again.
- Where would Blue Pearl be trapped, though?
- It was probably Pink Diamond's palanquin. Hence why Steven has no idea what it is, and the Gems have deliberately kept him away from it.
- Jossed. Blue Pearl is fine, and has presumably lived on Homeworld for the last few thousand years.
- Half-Jossed, at least. They do find Blue Pearl at the Palanquin—just active, and with her Diamond. So yes, they do find "something big" there, or rather someone.
- She has a belly button. Gems don't have those, not to mention that Lauren's concept art of her has splotches of blond hair.
- Gems don't have stomachs, either, but Amethyst specifically forms one in her projection so she can eat. If Mystery Girl is a Honey Trap, a bellybutton is doable.
In short he has a very good chance of getting through, plenty of reason to do so, and an army of specialists and pissed off subordinates who certainly want some revenge.
- He was horrified when Baby Melon died.
- Jossed. It involves a Gem-run zoo of humans, defective Earth Gems guarding the zoo, and Steven and the Crystal Gems breaking Greg out after he's captured by Blue Diamond.
- Confirmed. Yes. It's all on the CN app.
- Confirmed, though all the Crystal Gems do it, not just Pearl.
- Factoring in the fact that Pink was Rose, this could be even more likely than before. Given Blue's soft spot towards everything Pink loved and where she is in the stages of grief, she may come to accept her reasons for what she did once they're properly explained to her. Possibly out of guilt for what she'd see as her unwittingly pushing Pink away.
- This theory would also explain why Era 2 has been having problems. If White Diamond is spending a lot of time and energy and resources on bringing back Pink, her leadership duties would fall to the side.
- If that's the case, then that means Yellow's the only one doing her actual duties, if only because her method of coping is trying to forget about Pink.
- Alternatively, she is "bargaining" with forces even the Diamonds can scarcely comprehend in order to accomplish this.
Music is a huge theme of the series, and there's a theory a song is needed to purify Corrupted Gems like a song was used to corrupt them. It'd make sense to counter the Corruption Song with another song, possibly it's opposite purifying song.
For added bonus, it's possible that Beach City will join in making it everyone in the series uniting to cancel the Diamond's ultimate weapon.
It'd definitely be thematically appropriate.
- The first two minutes of the episode were leaked, showing Navy landing on Earth. Subsequent pictures show her living at the barn with the B-Team (Peridot, Lapis, and Veggiehead), but Lapis is highly apprehensive. The Roaming Eye appears in one picture, leading to one of two scenarios: either Navy ran away because Lapis has been nothing but hostile, or she was actually a cunning mole sent to determine when the Cluster will hatch.
2. It will be an April Fools Day episode where Ruby and Sapphire somehow manage to conceive a baby Ruby, and things get crazier from there.
- Best case, they find Leggy, who might not remember who shot them out into space.
- Middle case, if Leggy remembers, or if they find Navy, Doc, or Army, they're going to tell them that the Gems shot them out. Now, I forget if any of them realized/learned that they were Crystal Gems, but whoever they tell will still know that there are uncorrupted Gems on Earth, Crystal or not.
- Worst case, they find Eyeball, who is not only going to tell them that the Crystal Gems are alive and kicking, but so is Rose Quartz, who is now in a smaller, weaker form.
- Jossed. Navy is nicer than ever in the episode, but she's just leading them on to steal back the ship and leave Earth.
- Wasn't the Cluster Yellow Diamond's project?
- The Cluster overall is Yellow Diamond's project, but an attempt to revive Pink Diamond using it was a hidden contribution by White.
- Confirmed! At least, the Lars undergoing Character Development part is.
- Confirmed with the episodes "Lars of the Stars", "Letters to Lars" and "Your Mother And Mine" in season 5, where Steven drops by for a visit during the adventures of Lars and the Off-colors.
- The big problem with this is that Earth belonged to Pink Diamond so Yellow wouldn't have a say in how it was used anyway and likely wouldn't care. If Pink wanted to spare Earth and keep it intact she'd be within her rights as a Diamond, it wouldn't be much different than her keeping the Zoo.
- She was murdered, not for resources obviously, but out of principle. How can a single Quartz solider not only rebel, but evade capture, set up bases and build an entire army of various gems all by herself? The simple answer is: she can't. She would have been a fugitive at best, like the Off-Colors on Homeworld. The Rebellion was a farce - intended to forever stall the colonization of Earth. Its very possible, Pink had long fallen in love with her Earth. Ergo, Rose was ordered by Pink Diamond to lead her very own rebellion.
- Unfortunately, while this worked, she was eventually discovered by either the power-mad Yellow or White Diamond, who in rage at being defied and denied, assassinated her on the spot.
- Semi-Confirmed: She turned against the Diamonds, but they never realized it. Her "shattering" was actually her faking her own death.
- She would have to (despite certain grumblings from Ruby) Fuse with Sapphire to accomplish this. Sapphire's ability to look beyond the present, with Padparadscha's defective vision of past events, will combine into a power that can see far into the past.
- Jossed. It involved Steven traveling deep inside Pearl's gem to witness her memories of Pink Diamond/Rose Quartz faking her death.
- Rhodonite mentions her components being under a Morganite, though.
- Could still work out—it's entirely possible Pink Diamond's Pearl was given away to Morganite after her previous master's death.
- True, but both Blue Pearl and Yellow Pearl have their gems in the same place as their Diamonds, meaning that Pink's Pearl would most likely have a navel gem. Rhodonite's Pearl has a chest gem.
- Jossed. Pink Diamond's Pearl is the Crystal Gem Pearl.
- Confirmed as of the episode "A Single Pale Rose" as we find out that Rose Quartz never shattered Pink Diamond, but she WAS Pink Diamond all along and staged her own death with her Pearl disguising herself as Rose to look like she shattered her with her own sword, when she was merely poofed and left behind some fake shards that she swallowed to emulate her being shattered.
- DZ hasn't "realized how deranged the Diamond Authority is", she just came to the conclusion that one of the Diamonds shattered their fellow leader in an inside job. Even if she did, realizing that wouldn't instantly make her a pariah. I'd hardly call the trial public, either.
- Not the realization, but the fact that she openly accused her leaders of conspiring against one of their own to their faces would make them a pariah. And Yellow Diamond poofing Defense Zircon would make her desperate to escape.
- Jossed. Pink Diamond was never shattered and her shards were never hers; they were merely fake shards that she created to look like she was shattered so she could stage her own death at the hands of Rose Quartz, only to find out that Rose Quartz was actually Pink Diamond all along and her Pearl disguised herself as Rose to cover both of their tracks.
- Continuing on to this, the room keeps generating situations that are worse than the actual outcome because Steven himself believes that he couldn't have done anything else, which bleeds into the room as terrible alternate endings. It'll only be after Steven realizes that there were other, better options that the room will start to produce more positive outcomes.
- Ultimately jossed, since their reconciliation in Kevin Party doesn't involve Rose's Room.
- Her hair seems to have grown to shoulder-length by "Lars of the Stars", which appears to occur a while after "Kevin Party". It could mean that several time skips will occur throughout the season, particularly in between Connie's future appearances.
- Jossed in the above case: her hair was merely tied up in a ponytail and thus looked longer, and there have not been any seemingly major significant time skips or jumps throughout the season.
- Her hair appears to have regrown to about mid-neck length by the time of "Reunited" and "Legs From Here To Homeworld", her first physical appearances since "Lars of the Stars".
- Confirmed in the episode "Letters to Lars", when, after failing to find a new hobby, occupation, or purpose by integrating with those of the other Beach City citizens, he takes the job on Steven's suggestion.
- But that would be no different from fusing with Garnet.
- Not the point either, just that it would be a fun twist that he fused with the two of them instead of Garnet, even if the result is the same.
- Hinted thus far in "Letters to Lars", after new Big Donut employee Bill Dewey gives a new donut the same name.
In the invasion itself, Sapphire will attack Steven viciously, forcing Ruby to fight her. In the end, Steven appeals to Sapphire, she and Ruby reconcile, and they reform Garnet to kick Homeworld ass.
- Alternately, Sapphire will be brought back in the fold by the end of the "Heart of the Crystal Gems" event... but with the news that a massive invasion is coming thanks to her period of defection, starting a countdown throughout what will then be announced as the final season.
- Appears to be jossed. Although the Diamonds don't believe it at first, it takes Steven emitting Pink Diamond's aura as proof of identity to convince them and the promo following the Heart of the Crystal Gems arc shows that the Diamonds are not only non-hostile, but also glad to know that Pink Diamond was never shattered.
- Jossed. It was about Sapphire running off due to not taking the revelation well.
- I was going to say this one didn't make any sense, because surely he would have told Steven the truth when he started freaking out about "Rose Quartz shattering Pink Diamond". Except... does he actually know that that's what is bothering Steven? He's been kept very insulated from Gem stuff, so it's possible that nobody ever thought to tell him exactly what's wrong with Steven.
- Jossed. He didn't know until Ruby tells him, and seems okay with it, since he didn't tell her the full story of his own past either.
- And when Steven unlocks it and looks inside, he's going to find a recording from his mother basically going, "If you are watching this...then sadly, you learned the awful truth about me..."
- Rhodonite. Morganite was Rhodonite's components' former boss, who kicked them out.
- Amethyst will be doing it sarcastically, because she's Amethyst and that's the sort of thing she'd probably find hilarious.
- Peridot, on the other hand, will be doing it more seriously. Breaking from Yellow Diamond's service shattered her psyche, and devoting herself to Steven is the one thing that can satisfy all parts of her. Her love of Earth and freedom can be satisfied, because Steven loves those things to. But her built-in devotion to the Diamonds can also be satisfied, because she is once again devoting herself to the service of a Diamond.
- And Steven will be at least mildly uncomfortable with this.
- Partially confirmed with Amethyst. She sarcastically refers to Steven as "My Diamond" while making a funny face in Together Alone, however it was because she was attending a formal Gem event where she's expected to show proper deference to her Diamond.
- Something like this:(Serious discussion)Amethyst: Guys! Do you realize what this means?Someone: What?Amethyst: If Steven is Pink Diamond, then that means that he legally owns, like, the whole planet!
- Steven may be referred to as "the young prince".
- Ronaldo may unironically call him "Your Majesty".
- Pearl has just got off her chest the biggest secret she has been keeping from Steven, having basically bared all to Steven, once he works through most of his emotions about it, their bond will be strengthened and there will be a situation much like Jasper was for Amethyst, and they will fuse into Rainbow Diamond 2.0.
- Confirmed in that they fused, forming the second Rainbow Quartz, but it was to "wake" her up from her gemstone in "Change Your Mind".
- Half-confirmed/half-jossed. Her Pearl is monochrome (black-and-white), with some hints of gray.
- Jossed on the specific. While the basis is more or less the same (try to convince the Diamonds and fail, and then provide solid evidence that convinces them), Steven instead uses Astral Projection and emits an aura that the Diamonds recognize as Pink's.
- Alternate theory: If Steven does claim to have predicted it long ago, unlike Soos's dismissive remark, his will be a more excited I Knew It! Because, like the theorists who predicted the twist in "A Single Pale Rose" years earlier, he feels vindicated in holding onto his prediction in the face of being told how ridiculous it sounded.
- And considering they both like and use puns, it's going to be an incredibly punderful time.
- Alternatively, they could simply give her far less speaking roles to compensate. Season 6 could see her having plenty of non-speaking cameos and possibly scattered lines here and there that the staff could just call Aduba up to record without disrupting her OSTNB filming schedule too much.
- Jossed. Bismuth is still alive by the end of the episode.
- Jossed. They're really only mildly disturbed at worst, even blaming Pink for "making them ruin perfectly adequate Gems," but they at least agree to try helping cure them.
- Now that hes telling them what happened, they will tell him at some point maybe in early season 6 about when she was first made and why they were so dismissive of her.
- Steven will likely counter that if they want them to stop being genocidal conquerors, use of force won't possibly work on multiple levels. He'll add that taking them out, even if it hadn't already been proven virtually impossible, would likely plunge Gem society into chaos, especially since most of their subjects still adore them—citing Pink's former subjects' fanatical hatred of Rose and the Crystal Gems after her alleged shattering. Ultimately, however, this conflict may likely end on a note of Both Sides Have a Point and working out a means to Take Athird Option.
- Now that they know how their sister truly died, the Diamonds no longer have any reason to keep the Rose Quartz gemline bubbled. And it would be interesting to see what an actual Rose Quartz is like.
- Blue: (concerned) White, what are you-White Diamond: (cheerfully) Teaching her respect.Yellow Diamond: (grinding her teeth) You're hurting her.White Diamond: I am merely teaching her the way I taught you too.
And then, this leads into Blue and Yellow becoming Crystal Gems.
- This is likely as we saw in "Kevin Party" that Kevin wasn't completely the one-dimensional jerk we've seen him as so far.
- Jossed: the Diamond Days trailer shows them on Homeworld.
With these implications, it is likely that White Diamonds primary abilities are also Gem focused. In her case, she would be able to warp the thoughts or minds of Gems. This is why her Pearl is the way that she is.
Her Pearl is the only Pearl currently voiced by somebody other than Deedee Magno-Hall, instead being voiced by White's actress, Christine Ebersole. She is also frozen in a Y-pose, the same pose we see White Diamond in in "Legs From Here to Homeworld. If the theory that White Diamond is blind is proven true, this would also explain why her Pearl was looking upward when she addressed Steven. While under White Diamonds control, her Pearl is also blind and presumed that Steven (still being Pink Diamond) was taller than her. This would also prove why she did not question why Steven looked any different and simply presumed that he was still the Pink Diamond she knew.
So if White could control Gems like her Pearl, then it is likely that she could do this to any Gem, including Garnet, Pearl, Amethyst, even her fellow Diamonds if they decide to defy her.
Connie, however, is not a Gem. Connie was the only one unaffected by Blue Diamond's Emotion Bomb and Steven is immune to the destabilizers. If White Diamond can mentally control Gems, this means that Steven is just as vulnerable as everybody else, leaving Connie the only one on Homeworld invulnerable to her attack.
If this happens, Connie will snap Steven out of it with The Big Damn Kiss, and the two will Fuse into Stevonnie to keep White from regaining control of Steven.
- Jossed, as Steven is not mind-controlled and instead has his gem ripped off, creating an emotionless clone of him. However, Connie proves herself as instrumental by carrying Steven's weakened human half.
- Initially, "Change Your Mind" does start somewhat like the first sentence of this theory (Steven convinces the Diamonds to HeelFace Turn). However, the rest is Jossed since there's no war, White sabotages Pink's ship before Steven can escapes and Steven refuses to escape.
- Jossed. There's no animosity between them in "Reunited" and "Change Your Mind" (in the latter, they even cooperate).
- Confirmed in "Together Alone". However, Pearl and Amethyst are also poofed.
- Jossed. She does come back to normal, but it's because she's freed from White's brainwashing along with Blue and Yellow Diamond and the three main Crystal Gems, and she still has her cracked eye.
White Diamond, seeing this as the ultimate betrayal, mobilizes her armies to invade Earth and carry out her ultimate plan: to exterminate all organic life on Earth, convert the planet into a Starkiller Base-style superweapon, and use it to destroy another civilization to use as leverage in blackmailing organics into surrender. At the same time, White Diamond's true colors are revealed: she views the Gems as the ultimate lifeform due to their use of hard light and nigh-immortality, and all organic lifeforms as inferior by comparison, so she seeks to rid the galaxy of them.
Blue and Yellow want no part of it and try to go to Earth to warn Steven, but White puts them under mind-control, and mobilizes the Grand Fleet to set course for Earth, and even begins turning other superweapons Homeworld has built from the remnants of planets towards Earth to destroy it if the invasion goes south.
Building off some above WMGs about Blue and Yellow managing to have Heel Realizations, they'll have to contend with the fact that they don't stand a chance against White Diamond's power alone. The solution? A Triple-Gem fusion that will combine the power of all three Diamonds into something that can go toe-to-toe with the most powerful Gem in existence. Steven would be the most likely to pitch the idea, and while the other two will be hesitant, it might end up being a Godzilla Threshold, and at least it's closer to a Same-Gem fusion than, say, Garnet or Opal.
Bonus: The resulting fusion will be Black Diamond, as a consequence of their combined colors (if Blue=Cyan and Pink=Magenta for the sake of this, all three base pigment colors make black when mixed together) as well as playing Dark Is Not Evil to White Diamond's Light Is Not Good.
Not likely to happen but it'd be awesome if it did.
Forgive me if there's evidence I'm forgetting, but from what I've seen and can recall, injuries to the bodies of Gems are all-or-nothing affairs: Either they're fine or they're poofed.
So if Steven obtained severe injuries at some point, especially if there's blood(which we probably won't see in this show), the Diamonds will be forced to wrap their heads around the fact that Steven isn't a full Gem, and his insistence on being called "Steven" and staying in his current form isn't just a game.
Because this show is no stranger to subverting and averting a lot of common formula for cartoons, season 6, if it does happen, will go into detail about how any action has consequences, good or bad.
Specifically, it will go into detail about how all the uncorrupted gems readjust to life on earth, how Jasper might seek forgiveness/redemption and the rest of the CG's accepting her (especially Lapis...), Homeworld society changing for the better (if it does at all) and hopefully in-depth introductions to all the healed gems we saw in the season 5 finale.
Example: Say White Diamond gets poofed, like by a snerson or something. If by chance, in an attempt to teach her about living, Steven mentioned Nora (perhaps as part of explaining how his parents allowed him to be whatever he wound up being), she might try to appeal to Steven by reforming as a human-looking girl named "Nora White" or something, as like a "Look! I'm doing it too! I understand!" thing.
tl;dr In attempting to correct her behavior and redeem herself, White Diamond will become clueless problematic overcompensating mom.
Jasper doesn't like peace one bit. She lives for battle. And with the Diamonds having turned pacifist, Jasper will think they've lost sight of what she believes is the ultimate destiny of the Gem race: to destroy all organic life in the Milky Way.
Recruiting Aquamarine, the Ruby Squad, and other militarist Gems, Jasper plots to shatter or at least subjugate the Diamonds, shatter the Crystal Gems, kill Steven, destroy Earth using a weapon other than the Cluster, and lead the Gems in a galactic war of extermination. Of course, she'll lose and end up getting shattered since Steven realizes she's beyond redemption (and she shattered Spinel to break him), and the Anti-Diamond Rebellion will be brought to a permanent end as the collaborators are bubbled forever.
Steven Universe Future will see the return of Black Diamond, an ultra powerful MALE Gem who, along with White, was the creator of the Gems as a whole.
Black and White were created along with the universe, and because of that they saw the beginning of life itself and formed their own ideologies around it.
White came to love the beauty of perfection and flawlessness, while Black became obsessed with controlled chaos, believing it to be the crux of evolution and power.
Despite their differences, Black and White came together on a remote planet containing all the minerals they needed to create all different types of Gems.
Despite both having no real gender, Black encouraged White to make the rest of the Gems in her image rather than his, secretly, this was because, while he loved her, he saw White as technically inferior to him.
Yellow and Blue Diamond were created and together the 4 of them turned the planet into what would eventually become the Gem Homeworld.
White eventually decided that the amount of Gem types they had created satisfied every need they had and that what they had created was absolutely perfect.
Black, on the other hand, believed they should keep going and find new Elements for new Gem types, but Yellow and Blue agreed with White and decided to form the Gem empire with what they had.
Black, feeling rejected, went off on his own to search for new minerals for Gem types and discovered a new element: Dark Matter.
He returned to homeworld having absorbed a great amount of this power and tried to convince the other Diamonds to use it to create a new super race of Gems so they could expand even further.
White, however, refused as she believed the Dark matter was to erratic and unpredictable and would be a detriment to their perfect empire, to which Blue and Yellow agreed.
Feeling rejected once again and believing he is losing his superiority over them, Black attacked the Diamonds in an attempt to start over without interference.
A great battle between Diamonds occurred, ending with Black being shattered and expelled into space, where the Dark matter carried his remains to who-knows where.
The other Diamonds, remorseful over what they had to do, decided to create Pink Diamond to fill the void left by Blacks betrayal.
This coincided with the start of Era 1 of the Gem Empire, leading to the Diamonds colonizing more planets to expand their perfect empire...
A millennia later, after the events of the main series and the movie, Black Diamond is revealed to have been reassembled and has created a new physical form generated from Dark Matter rather than Light.
Along with this, he has created his own army of Dark Gems, also made of Dark Matter and who, while still having no gender, all appear male like him.
During the events of Future, he will send his Dark Gems to collect parts for his new ultimate weapon: a massive faceship powered by Dark matter which has the ability to absorb entire planets from space(which is technically Dark matter as well).
He will also turn other Gems to his side using his ability to instill corruption, Jasper and even White Diamond will become victims of this, with Jasper willingly joining his side and White becoming corrupted as a result of their rematch that ends with Black driving the other Diamonds from Homeworld and conquering all of Gem-Kind.
Future will be about Steven and the rest of Gemkind forming a new rebellion against Black Diamond and the Dark Gems to prevent him from conquering the universe.
Finally, during this time Black will challenge what Steven and co see as right as wrong, questioning whether or not their desire for empathy and equality will truly lead to a brighter future(he could maybe even succeed in destroying Stevens Gem, lamenting over how he and Pink may have gotten along well under different circumstances)
Black may or may not be redeemed in the end, he attempts destroy the Earth in the big finale and either completely rejects Steven and cos offer of peace and is defeated or comes to finally understand their viewpoint(though not completely accepting it) gets rid of the Dark Matter somehow after which he fades away without the Dark Matters power, with his Dark Gems becoming real Gems and integrating into Gem society after seeing the Crystal Gems ideology as well.
- There could also be a spinoff/prequel about the adventures of Rose Quartz/Pink Diamond.
This format could allow the Crewniverse to explore any and all the plot ideas they wanted to include but never got the chance to, such as an Amethyst origin story (with a motherly Rose), Rose deciding to have Steven, Rhodinite's backstory with an appearance from Morganite (who apparently has a canon design), Mystery Girl returning, why the Zircons were "in trouble", Spinel and the Diamonds having "problems to settle out", what happens when a gem is left in the dark too long, Lapis backstory and details about her powers, and Lars discovering his Lion powers. Steven's story being concluded by the end of the Future series would mean that the "Steven Perspective" can be retired, which means episodes centering around these things wouldn't even require a framing device to show Steven learning these things as we do.
