I heard the theory that lapis lied about the reason she was on earth and might explain why she has so much self hatred - she killed countless species and was likely supposed to do the same for earth. Lapis gems are made to terraform and a “short time” to gems is drastically different from our version of short time. To us a short time is a week, but to pearl, taking Steven away for 50 years to pop over to the nearest star system is really no different than taking him to Disney world over the weekend. So lapis could’ve been on earth to terraform until bismuth poofed her.
