  • This is less a discussion of absolutes, and more a what-if thing to keep the buzz alive after this episode's debut. The question is: What is there to do now that most of the problems have been resolved? The war of the Diamonds has finally ended, the corrupted Gems are cured, and everything seems to finally be at peace.

    What comes next, at least in my theorizing opinion, won't be a conflict, but a fallout from the answered questions. Perhaps a new opening to go with the new looks? And furthermore, there's still characterization to be found in the vase of Jasper, Biggs and all the other uncorrupted Gems.

    But what do you think? What do you suppose will happen in this christened Season 6 now that things have cooled off? I look forward to hearing your answers, viewing peoples.

    • One thing I can hope for is a new ending theme. One that would actually foreshadow future events, like what we thought the second theme was before new parts revealed it to be the "Love Like You" reprise. Another thing is government involvement in the plot, and other aliens out there. Ronaldo's theories on "Sneople" might be foreshadowing the existence of reptilian races, which might remind me of the alien lizards from Harry Turtledove's Worldwar books.

    • I suppose the Sneople thing IS possible... Still, I keep that kind of talk at an arms length since Ronaldo is mostly known for being lucky with his predictions, not actually being right all the time. I mean, he mistook Steven for a snake-person for Ra's sake!

      At any rate, the rest of what you say does raise a good point. What IS the government doing while this is all coming about? Granted, the local government probably already knows about Gem affairs and trusts the Crystal Gems, but I sense other nations may not be so forgiving.

      Personally, I'm kinda hoping for a new extended theme song to go with the one sung by Steven near the end. And maybe the Diamonds won't be such strangers, now that they have had at least somewhat a change of heart.

      By the way, what's Worldwar and Harry Turtledove?

    • 1. Not all corrupted gems were healed yet (eg. the Tongue Monster), so the CGs still have to round them up.

      2. What happened to the Zircons and all the other Homeworld gems whom we all know and love? since the CGs have Pink's leg ship now, they can go to Homeworld whenever they want.

      3. Actually, I kind of want to see another Room For Ruby pulled on us so going back to Homeworld won't be that easy, and we can have some slower-paced filler for a change.

      4. Did Steven's gemstone go back to its original Diamond position??

      Really? I didn't know that' or if I did, it was a while ago.

      As for that, it actually does raise a good point. After all, good relations between the two sides is now possible. Maybe the Zircons will recieve a pardon for their actions.

      Ah, but that begs the question; who do we know that would pull such a stunt? I'm guessing the Ruby Squad wants nothing to do with Earth or Steven now that he's no longer a wanted Gem.

      That...I don't know. It's kinda hard to tell for now.

      Harry Turtledove is an author who is known for his alternate history novels. The Worldwar series spans four of his books and involve aliens invading Earth during the Second World War, and the Axis and Allies, now sharing a common enemy, have to stop the aliens. However, crossing the franchise over with Steven Universe might be a hard thing to do, as the Crewniverse "confirmed" that there was never a Second World War in the SU world.



      But the Turtledove and Worldwar thing and your curiosity for it, Dinoboygreen, I think is getting us off track, as we should focus on what a possible season 6 will have in store for everyone.

      You have a point; wait, there wasn't a WWII? How? Did Rose Quartz nip the issue in the bud in the first world war?

      Also, this does beg the question; with the Diamonds no longer a threat, could Steven maybe make an expedition to learn more about Homeworld? Perhaps even uncover a question I still have in my mind: Who or what made the Diamonds in the first place?

    • I hope on timeskip

        Loading editor
    • I'm not sure if they would do a timeskip. It's clear Steven is going to grow old alongside Connie as outside of Connie, he will have no other reason to age, and therefore, there wouldn't be a big timeskip if there were one, since for promotional reasons, they'd have to keep Steven physically the same. So a 1-2 year timeskip would probably be the only timeskip we'd see, as Connie would age up to 13-14 and would still look the same. 

      Could be possible that they actually do have a big time skip and actually change Steven entirely, but I highly doubt it, as I think what makes the dynamic between the Crystal Gems good is because Steven is maturing yet also physically staying the same.

    • Yeah, I'm hoping for a short timeskip.

        Loading editor
    • If they do a timeskip it's likely only going to jump a year or two forward. Short enough that the changes aren't too jarring but big enough that things actually happen. I'd like it if there were a mystery to go along with the timeskip. Some of the mysteries we have to fill in for ourselves for a couple episodes through basic character interactions before it's just flat out stated and other mysteries that are in the background and sometimes the focus of an episode.

      Also, I'd like it if the CGs kind of went on to live their lives. With the last 30 percent of the war being resolved and Homeworld possibly changing the CGs aren't needed anymore however they're still a close family. Lapis, Peridot, and Bismuth could be a terrific trio of builders. Amethyst might decide to be a rockstar with Sadie's band or whatever she wants to do, Pearl will probably stay at home to finish Steven's homeschooling and sparring with Connie while also dating, and Garnet...idk Garnet can do whatever she wants.

      I think they may not have much choice but to do a timeskip. After all, it takes time to make gradual change for things to really get off the ground in terms of this once broken family life.

      Still, HOW they're going to do it is still beyond me. It will take more than a little time after the movie before they will likely get around to it.

    • I really really don't want a timeskip tbh

        Loading editor
    • I would like a timeskip mostly so all the new infrastructure will already have been built, like the expanded beach house and other houses for the new gems.

    • we cant know what comes next,so if a season 6 exist i imagine two things:

      1)the history continues and the plot is the change in HW goberment,so the earth becomes like some vacations place for the gems of HW who needs a break of their duties and steven and the CG try to manage this, also, some high ranked gems are angered with the recently changes so they try to derrocate the diamonds.

      or...

      2) a new story with new characters, obviusly with many refferences to the previous history.

      and what if in the movie the plot is this, the diamonds makes a gem for steven which would allow steven and rose been separated without puting them in danger, the diamonds belive the gem has no mind and is only a gem with their energy to maintain steven alive, it works but its still pink steven so they try to recover the PD memories, meanwhile the new steven´s gem creates a personality and try to take control of steven to be free..

    • I think the only plausible option is a time-skip now, since the peak story line has been reslved now and only loose ends exist, 

      I doubt they will make a season of loose ends since its a general rule in animation and story telling to 'save the best for last' and since the main arc that the story has been setting up since the begging has come to an end, it makes sence to start fresh.

        Loading editor
    • It depends on the time-skip though. A 1-month-2 years time-skip is possible, but what would be the reason for it? If there's no reason for it, then why bother? The Homeworld rules will start changing once the Diamonds get back there, so it's not as if we actually need a time skip outside of possibly a month or 2. 

      Plus, we also have to consider merchandising. Cartoon Network wouldn't allow for a huge timeskip if it changes how Steven looks, and even if it doesn't, they probably wouldn't want Connie to change too much either. Though if it went to Adult Swim, I could see some DBZ-type thing happening.

    • What if there isn’t a time skip? We still have a lot of things that we could continue right off from change your mind. The healed gems, or at least, the healed crystal gems likely stayed on Earth. There might be hundreds of them. I don’t see a reason why they would go back to Howmworld. So we could see all of them getting used to life on Earth. And what purpose does the Crystal gems really serve anymore really? The conflict with the Diamonds has been ended, and the corrupted gems, (bubbling them was basically the gems job after the rebellion ended) are gone. Who knows what could happen.

      Maybe they'll go down a similar path to NATO. That originzation was created against the Soviets, but after the dissolutoin, it exists with a new purpose.
