    • Aha, so it was Pearl who set the events for the rebellion in motion, and the formation of Garnet took it in a whole new direction! I had a feeling that it was more complicated than the idea that Pink's actions were motivated by selfishness, she did try to convince the other Diamonds after all. I knew that it couldn't simply be that she was a "terrible" person, and she did everything she possibly could before she officially started her rebellion.

      Also, doesn't it feel like sometimes that the Crewniverse looks at the fan feedback and responds to that accordingly? I get that sense sometimes, especially when Pearl said what Pink had done may have seemed selfish, just like what some of our comments said. Think about it, Pearl basically answered all our recent questions through her story and, for instance, it turns out that she was a gift.

    • I'm a bit disappointed that Pearl automatically lost her inability to talk about Rose being Pink once Steven learned the truth; I thought Steven (as Pink) would have to release her from the command. But then I also thought the Pink backstory would cause Garnet to unfuse and they wouldn't find Sapphire till at least well into the next episode, if not later. Nice to see them building on "The Answer" this way by having Garnet inspire Rose to make it a real rebellion, but now it seems the big search will be for Ruby instead of Sapphire.

      I thought Sapphire was gonna find a way back to Homeworld and sell the Crystal Gems out in exchange for her old position.

    • I also want to comment on how the love between Pink/Rose and Pearl appeared to be genuine. Sure, Pearl wanting to make her Diamond happy may have been a part of her "programming" but it was Pearl who made Pink realize that she did not have to be what she thought she was supposed to be, and Pink/Rose in return accepted Pearl (who thought she should be replaced because of how different and free thinking she was) for who she is and not what she was made to be. Pink/Rose may have not had the specific kind of love that Pearl had, but they nonetheless loved each other. So I don't think Pink manipulated her; remeber, in the Rose's Scabbard flashback, she told Pearl she did not have to fight with her.

    • I am now wondering, who was Pearl’s original owner? Pearl was a GIFT to Pink, not just her permanent Pearl; (ex. Yellow Pearl as the Pearl to Yellow, not a gift)

      I still got this theory of mine, that Pearl's original owner could be White Diamond.

    • Pearl's purpose was to make Pink Diamond was to make her happy.

      Also, she knows who is Yellow Pearl and Blue Pearl!

      She didn't explictly say she didn't know Yellow Pearl, though. She dodged the question.

    • Come to think about it, why did Blue and Yellow Pearl look at each other the way they did when she was mentioned in The Trial? They must have been familiar with her, since Pearl was a gift to Pink Diamond and not explicitly made for her.

    • Did no one else see that on Rubies note she didn't plan ahead, since she couldn't use future vision, and had to use a second line for Saphire's name? I love the crewniverses attention to detail... :D

    • I just realized that every Earth made Gem and every Gem made for Pink is technically Steven's sister. XD Also, can you imagine Pink's excitement when our Amethyst emerged? The very Amethyst that was supposed to emerge the very day Pink and Pearl created Rose Quartz emerged thousands of years after the fact. It must've brought back so many wonderful memories.

      Given the time it takes to get an episode from scripting to screen, it seems unlikely it was response to fan feedback. The dialog for this episode would have been recorded close to a year ago, before even our first glimpse of PD in the Jungle Moon episode. That said, they probably did anticipate fan questions/feedback because they would have had those same questions themselves as they wrote the story.

      Anyone notice that PD's laugh is the same as Steven's and Stevonnie's?

      Also, it would seem that PD's disguise came before there were any actual rose quartz soldiers. This gives some weight to the idea that PD had rose quartzes made to help cover her alter-ego. She passed herself off as an amethyst but she didn't really match them that well, so creating a whole cut of gem that matched her coloring and gem cut would make it much easier for her to get out of her tower, "play" with other gems, and explore earth.

      Still, I get the feeling that they probably have a Sapphire on board if they can anticipate the feedback this well..or at least a Ronaldo!

      She must have had a regular uniform when she popped out (late but not nude). I'm surprised she didn't "remember" when they got to PD's Human Zoo & the "play the role we were made for" plan was revealed - even a toss-away line about Rose telling her she'd never need that again would have worked for me.

    • Maybe not knowing what she was made for is another part of coming out late?

    • The closing credits that ran over the final scenes of this episode (as opposed to the actual credits that ran after the second episode) contain a song spoiler. It had every voice actor so far in Season 5 with no new ones (I initially noticed Joan Jett as Sunshine Justice flashing by), plus every song with vocals so far in Season 5 -- PLUS a song called "Ruby Rider" (lyrics by Jeff Liu, music by Jeff Liu & Stemage). There was no new song in tonight's episode, contrary to prior announcements. Given the storyline, I suspect we'll hear "Ruby Rider" in "The Question".

      Apparently, those credits don't run all the way to "Reunited" because I don't see any other new songs; we know there's one more in either "Made of Honor" or "Reunited". With the date adjustment on "Ruby Rider", my premonition that "Reunited" will have a cover version of Peaches & Herb's 1979 hit of the same name -- if not actually reuniting Peaches & Herb to re-record it -- may well come true.

    • Welp, Pink Diamond is now my favourite Diamond. Followed by Yellow, Blue then White (but only because she isn't revealed yet)

      Although the trope of absconding royalty is an old one, the fact that the childish, bratty half-pint pink girl was in the same class as revered, yet ruthless gem goddesses amuses me to no end.

      Speaking of which, hyped for Yellow visiting the 'hideous rock' and us seeing her ship (and perhaps palanquin)

    • I know that Garnet got defused again and Ruby nd Saphire broke up.

        Loading editor
    • Ever since I first saw pink diamond I didn't think she was evil, maybe a bit childish, but she didn't look like a bad gem, I watched enough movies to know that sometimes even royalty doesn't have the freedom to do whatever they want, I even considered the possibility that she sacrificed herself by letting rose shatter her, when discovered that rose was pink diamond it only confirmed my belief that she was pure hearted and now we discover that she wasn't a independent thinker revolutionary that most believed but instead she both inspired and was inspired by those around her

        Loading editor
    • The entire situation could have been averted if either the Diamonds showed that they cared (as Pink thought they'd not mind her 'death' and perhaps simply cook up a replacement) or just let her keep the blue marble as a zoo instead of shutting her up by throwing some humans into a spaceship.

      But then we'd have no Steven Universe. :P

        Loading editor
    • They probably thought they where showing they cared. They likely thought that she was just scared of driving a species to extinction so they made the Zoo then they thought Pink was getting cold feet so they decided to take care of the hard stuff. Of course we also don't know exactly what Pink was saying so she might've worded something the wrong way during her pleas. All in all this whole thing boils down to tragic miscommunication between both sides.

    • I'm confused by the timeline. The Answer set Ruby and Sapphire to get to know Earth in at the least a few days, but this ep makes it look like Garnet found Rose not much after they ran away

    • I'm surprised no one has brought this up yet but did Pink Diamond and Pearl warp from the Moon to the Kindergarten?

    • It could be that they have a Warp Pad on the moon but either they destroyed it at some point or it's outside the base and they thought Steven would die within moments

      That is what she shapeshifted into in the zoo arc. All of her sister Amythysts were transferred to a different diamond when Pink faked her death, which is why they have different uniforms now.

      I thought it was a reference to the Rainbow Quartz dance in We Need To Talk where they flip her hair when they form her.
