I think the old Steven thread is locked, but you guys, did you see the latest episode?  Oh my gosh!  Pink Diamond!  Pearl!  Rose!  And then the teaser for the upcoming Garnett conflict!  Can't wait!

Yes...!  I need more now.  lol!

I honestly hadn't been watching in a long time since we gave up cable TV, well, and all TV.  But I found I could watch online and after seeing spoilers I *had* to see the latest two episodes!

I was about to drop that show (despite thinking it looks beautiful) because of the fake-outs and irratic schedule. But my interest got peaked again! Finally that cat is out of the bag. I assume there will be a season 6 now.

WOW I am SHOCKED!!!!!  I thought that was such an unlikely theory-

Seems like they may be moving towards a conclusion doesn't it?

It sounds like this was planned since the start. That kind of renders some arguments the more critical side of the fanbase had towards the show moot. If only they could fix that gosh darn scheduling problem...
I'm both intrigued and upset by it. I'd love to see what comes out of it!

Honestly, the SU fandom is like FiM fandom. Some of them take the show so seriously they forget it's a kids cartoon.
What kind of amuses me tho is that "skinny Rose" is canon now.

I love the show, but am not involved with the fandom at all, lol.  I honestly think that's the best way to enjoy most shows.  Otherwise everything just ends up being a series of super-serious arguments between fans over a cartoon.  No fun!

Anyway . . . (Spoiler-y fan theories ahead)

Man, no wonder Pearl has been falling apart since Rose left.  I had suspected for a long time that Pearl was Pink Diamond's pearl, because the other Pearls we've seen have been the attendants of other Diamonds.  But I figured it was a case of "Pearl escaped from Pink Diamond, was taken in by Rose, and since she was feeling lost she began hero-worshipping Rose."  Little did I know that things were way more complex than that!  I think Pearl was genuinely happy to escape from the constraints of her expected role as a servant . . . but she kept Rose at the center of her world, now viewing herself as a knight whose duty was to keep Rose Quartz safe.  So really, kind of the same role she'd always been in . . . only more proactive.  I keep thinking back to things Pearl said in previous episodes . . .

Like: "That's the mark of a great leader, Steven.  Knowing just what to keep hidden from everyone you're trying to protect!"

And:

Garnet: "Rose kept many secrets, even from us."

Pearl: "But not from ME!  I was the one she told everything!"

Ha ha ha WOOOOOOW.  The foreshadowing in this show is amazing.

One of the animators was answering some questions on Tumblr and they indicated that it wasn't just a case of Pearl wanting to keep this secret, but that she literally HAD to because it was a direct order from her diamond.  (The animator went on to say this wasn't the case with all gems, just the pearls because they are 'made to order' for a specific gem.)

I know! This was insane! It’s interesting to see how the show will move on from here, and who will do what. I definitely foresee some tough decisions, and more reveals. I don’t think we are out of the woods yet.
 It was a good special, but not quite what I expected. I like the surprise, and the in depth look at pink diamond and pearl was amazing. But I dunno...there’s a bit of me that feels like we’re still missing. I’ll call it a hunch, but I think we’re going to be getting some diamond on diamond on crystal gem on diamond/rebel action soon.
     Fun fan theory I have: Rebecca sugar is not human. She is some kind of changeling who feeds not on love, but rather the tears and feelings of humans. She simply releases an episode when her stockpile is low, and fills up for some time, enough to allow the fans to regenerate the lost tears before she harvests again. This would be to stretch supplies and avoid detection due to draining of humans.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

...You do realize the crew have no control over how/when the episodes are released, right? That's all down to the network.
