Can you help me identify some key differences between Echo and Delta in Jurassic World? Blue and Charlie I can identify by sight, but I often mix up the other two raptors.
Yeah! I think I’ll describe the others as well, just for any of my followers who are still confused. As a lot of the raptor scenes are dark as well, I’ll try to point out which scenes correspond to which raptor.
Blue (on the right) and Delta reacting to the handler falling into their pen
Blue waiting for Owen to feed her
Blue looking at Rexy after the Indominus’ defeat
BLUE is obviously the most recognizable in the whole raptor squad pack, she has a bright blue stripe down her flank, and is a sort of greenish-grey colour. She can be seen in the following scenes:
When the pack turns on Owen (obviously)
She is the one who attacks Barry
She is one of the two that chases the mobile vet unit, along with Delta
She is the one who fought the Indominus with Rexy (obviously)
The only confirmedsurviving raptor from Jurassic World
She was also the leader of the pack, and the oldest
Delta snarling at Owen
Delta (on the right) and Blue anticipating a reward from Owen
Delta preparing to kill Vic Hoskins
DELTA is the second oldest in the pack. She is a dull green mottled colour. She has a dark spot on her eye and she has some distinct birdlike movements. She is the one typically depicted with round pupils, though this is never shown in the film. She can be seen during:
When the raptors attack the handler, she is the one on the left
She is the one that Hoskins develops a special interest in
She attacks the InGen merc at the back of the MVU, in front of Zach and Gray
She is the raptor that chases the MVU with BlueEcho. She is also the one that gets tasered by Zach and Gray, and subsequently falls off the vehicle during the chase, causing her headset to fall off.
She is the one that kills Hoskins
She is the one who is distracted by the Dilophosaurus hologram
She and Echo are the two that attack the Indominus after Blue is knocked out
She is thrown off the sceen by the Indominus, so she may still be alive
After viewing the movie an embarrassing amount of times since, I’ve determined that Delta is actually the one thrown into the grill at the Winston Steakhouse during the final act of the film. It’s unlikely that she survived.
Echo snarling at the raptor handler who fell into the pen
Echo (top) along with Charlie (left), Delta (right), and Blue (bottom), during training
Echo (foreground) and Delta (background) responding to the Indominus’ call
ECHO is the second youngest. Her distinguishing feature is a scar across her muzzle from challenging Blue as the leader of the pack, though this can be difficult to see in the movie. She most closely resembles the original Jurassic Park raptors; she’s mostly brownish, with blue and green marks on her back and face. She doesn’t have a prominent role in the film, but she can be recognized in these scenes:
She is the raptor that catches the loose pig, and subsequently causes the young handler to fall into the pen
She’s the only one not seen in the “pratt-keeping” sequence (probably because she’s devouring the pig)
She’s the one that growls at the handler through the cage bars
She is the raptor that chases the MVU with Delta after the pack sided with the Indominus. She’s also the one who jumped through the driver window, almost biting Claire’s head off.
She attacks the Indominus with Delta after the Indominus knocks Blue out
She is the one that the Indominus throws into a grill, and is incinerated
In actuality, Echo is the one whom the Indominus clamps its jaws on, and is thrown off-screen, and Delta was the one thrown into the grill. Many fans speculate she may still be alive, but it’s highly unlikely, seeing as the enormous Indominus (which has Tyrannosaurus DNA) clamped down with its tremendous bite force on her body, and she is shown going limp instantly. It’s likely the bite instantly killed her.

Charlie (far right), Echo (middle right), Blue (middle left), and Delta (far left) preparing for training
CHARLIE is the youngest and most “puppy-like” of the four (she’s on the right in the above image). She’s bright green with thin, dark green stripes all across her body. (She is also the absolute best and is extremely adorable.) She appears in the following scenes:
She is the one who keeps hitting the other Velociraptors with her tail
During the “pratt-keeping” scene, she’s the one on the right
She’s the one that is blown up by a rocket, which she didn’t deserve, but whatever.
I know this turned out to be a pretty long answer, but I hope it helps you and any others that were confused about which raptors were which.
Yellow looks surprised by stevens answer, like she expected him to plead innocent or start a show treason and speech about freedom in front of her
Blue squints her eyes, hearing what he says and beginning to compare and contrast his statements agents what she knows from autopsy and crime scene investigations .
Its very clear, at least some part of the diamonds is looking at the situation presented and thinking “this does not add up”
but as shown before, yellow wants to dismiss the past and move on with her life while blue wants to make sense of the situation, honor pinks memory, and make sure whoever truly murdered pink does not get away with it.
as usual im sorry for how long it is but i have no filter when it comes to bluesey
let’s talk about kissing first because that’s important
after blue gets the green light from the psychics who tell her the curse is broken, it’s so on
kissing everywhere all the time (who can blame them they have a lot to make up for)
im serious, the disgustingly cute pda is definitely a thing with them and you literally cannot convince me otherwise
good morning kisses, goodnight kisses, forehead kisses, ‘hey we haven’t seen each other in a few hours’ kisses, just all kinds of kisses
their second kiss, i imagine, goes a bit like their first pretend kiss
it’s late at night and they’re out under the stars and after blue tells him that the curse is gone, gansey smiles at her and says, “May I beg one off you, Jane?”
and blue, who cannot even contain her giddy smile, counters with “Under all this?” and they both laugh a little, pleased the other remembered, before they finally kiss
and it’s everything they ever wanted, everything they ever imagined it to be, and more
gansey tastes like mint and blue tastes like yogurt and they both think they could do this forever
blue!! standing!! on!! her!! tiptoes!! when she kisses gansey and then other times gansey will lift her off the ground a bit!! kill me!!
so after ronan moves to the barns and gansey is left with no roommates, blue all but unofficially lives at monmouth
at first it’s just their usual late night phone calls but after blue has a bad nightmare about gansey’s death she ends up biking over to monmouth in the middle of the night just to see him and make sure he’s okay
gansey is peacefully asleep and blue doesn’t have the heart to wake him, especially since just hearing him breathe calmed her down, but she doesn’t want to go back home either so she hops into bed with him and cuddles to him
gansey hardly notices, just breathes a quiet “jane” and wraps his arms around her
when he wakes up in the morning blue is already up,
quietly typing away on his phone, and gansey blinks sleepily, more than a little confused, murmuring “jane” and she smiles down at him and greets him with a soft kiss
after that there’s a lot of sleeping over and lots of cuddling and spooning and lazy mornings in bed
blue has a few clothes over and a toothbrush and tons of yogurt in the fridge
she also convinces him to do something about the kitchen/bathroom situation because “no gansey i won’t eat food coming out of a fridge that’s literally next to the toilet” and since ronan’s room is now free, they move it there
gansey is usually up before blue so 90% of the time she either wakes up to breakfast delivered in bed or soft kisses all across her face and she doesn’t mind either
gansey’s new nightly project is sleep, especially with blue around most of the time, but on nights he or blue can’t sleep they work on the mini henrietta together
other times gansey will read aloud to her until she falls asleep to his voice
also blue wears his stupid polo shirts to bed (she hates them but they all smell like him, it’s a dilemma)
they’re huge on her so she looks really cute and sexy, gansey thinks, but doesn’t dare say aloud
sometimes when he wakes up and sees blue sleeping next to him wearing his clothes, hair mussed, mouth open as she snores, he can’t believe he got so lucky and he gets to wake up next to his true love every day for the rest of his life
after his death blue’s probably a little overprotective of him for a few months, always watching him closely, casually but not so casually resting her hand right over his heart to hear it beating under her palm, hugging him a little tighter than necessary
gansey notices, of course, but doesn’t say a thing and just makes sure she knows he’s not going to leave her again
one time when they’re on one of their night drives aimlessly roaming around they come across the place where gansey died, where they first kissed, where she killed him, and blue asks him to pull over and they just sit in silence for several minutes, maybe hours, holding each other’s hands tightly, grateful that they can be here together now and they can put this chapter behind them and move forward
in a way it’s sort of closure to them and after that it’s easier for gansey to sleep through the whole night and blue to go longer periods of time without talking to him to know he’s okay
okay so the ganseys invite the sargents over for like a parents meeting parents thing and orla ends up tagging along just because which results in a lot of flirting between her and helen. blue and gansey are horrified. maura does a reading for mr and mrs gansey who are completely delighted and don’t even notice a thing. halfway through dinner orla sneaks off with helen and blue vows never to bring her cousin with her again
other cute things: on their first official date gansey takes her to an aquarium which is honestly perfect tbh because gansey likes fish and sea creatures and blue just likes animals in general
blue of course teases him about his “fish kink” as she puts it but she’s just as fascinated the whole time as he is and they take a lot of pictures together and of the sea creatures
they capture a kiss on camera just as a shark swims by behind them and it’s their favorite photo
also gansey has a habit of buying blue yogurt every time he goes to the store, like literally every time, even if there’s still some left in the fridge, and blue acts annoyed but she still eats it and she still gives him the fruit bits (which is half the reason he does it lbr)
one time when ronan and adam are out on a date they agree to babysit opal for them and it’s sort of a disaster
wants to be “the cool uncle” but he knows nothing about kids and opal isn’t your typical kid anyway
he thinks about spoiling her with candy and ice-cream but she only eats rocks and tree barks
he tries the “what do you know about welsh kings?” line on her but blue is shaking her head at him in the background so he quickly backtracks
they play some board games but opal quickly grows bored when she doesn’t win so they decide to take her to the park
where the moment they take their eyes off her she disappears off to somewhere
there’s a lot of panic and “oh my god we lost ronan’s kid he’ll never forgive us oh my god blue what do we do” from gansey while blue calmly and logically tries to figure out where she could have gone
gansey is on the brink of a heart attack when they find her across the street petting a cute stray cat
gansey spends half the way home making sure she knows never to do that again and the other half making sure she won’t tell ronan they temporarily lost her
blue jokingly says that after all that she knows for sure that she doesn’t want kids for many many years and gansey chokes on his water because that does imply they will have kids sometime down the road (and they do, a girl and a boy)
so about the roadtrip, they definitely have pictures of the two of them next to every damn famous locations they visit and blue makes a handmade photo album out of them and gives it to him for christmas
gansey also takes a lot of not-so-secret photos of her with his phone and i say not-so-secret because blue knows, she just pretends she doesn’t, and anyway his phone is basically hers too so she sees all of them
her idea of “revenge” is taking photos of him while he’s sleeping and she has to admit, they’re all pretty darn cute
she does also doodle some stuff on his forehead while he sleeps and takes a selfie posing next to him with her tongue stuck out
then she posts it on his instagram because yeah
the amount of times henry almost walks in on them oh boy
so one time blue complains about her neck hurting because she slept in the car the previous night while gansey was driving so gansey offers to give her a massage and it gives henry the wrong idea about what they’re doing because it pretty much goes like this:
blue: “oh, yes. right there.” gansey: “good?” blue: “yes.” henry in the next room: “guys, the walls are thin, please stop having sex.”
so i assume they go to college after their gap year, and probably different ones, so gansey gets her one of those lockets with pictures inside, and on one side there’s a picture of the two of them at nino’s, blue hanging on his back like a monkey, both of them grinning wildly, and on the other side there’s a selfie with the gang in cabeswater during the early days, blue, gansey and noah also grinning wildly while adam smiles softly and ronan glares
blue never takes it off
after they’re out of college they automatically move in together
it’s not something they ever agree on, it’s just something they both know without talking about it, so after graduation gansey’s like “i found this really cool house, wanna check it out?” and blue’s like “hell yeah” and suddenly they have a house
but even after settling down they still do travel a lot and visit all kinds of countries and places
they definitely have one of those maps on the wall with pins signaling all the places they’ve been to and they’re always planning to expend that map
and lastly i didn’t know where to put this but okay listen, gansey and blue doing haunted house vlogs
it’s my dream
i just really love the idea, listen it’s totally their thing
breaking into old abandoned houses or places that are rumored to be haunted and taping their experience
gansey does all kinds of research beforehand that he excitedly rambles off to the camera the second it’s on
he’s here for the mystery of what happened and the hopes of solving it
blue’s here mostly for the thrill but they make a pretty good team
over time their channel gets popular and some famous and less famous haunted hotels contact them to see if they could do a coverage on their hotel and bring in more customers
gansey is excited right until he realizes that most of these hotels aren’t actually haunted
but the bottom line, they never stop having adventures :’)
I have so many things to say about this episode that I don’t even know where to start. I’ll try to be brief, though ‘cause I’m supposed to be sleeping right now to get to work in a few hours.
1) No more consent issues
I think Robbie made it crystal clear that Jimmy Novak is no longer alive. Castiel’s body is his and only his and has been for a while now. Anyone who is/was against Destiel due to dubcon and/or vessel issues has to look for another argument. In fact, I totally understand that Amelia had to die because, honestly, wanting Cas to be happy with Dean could have been considered selfish if we thought that Amelia was somewhere suffering, alone because Cas took her husband from her. Giving Jimmy and Amelia a happy ending in Heaven as canon soulmates was the most beautiful thing Robbie could do to give both characters closure. By the way, did you notice that Claire said the whole “Jimmy’s gone, right?” in front of Dean and Sam? Never had any of the boys talked about Jimmy before this. At least not in canon. I think it was important to make it clear that both Winchester brothers know that Cas is not possessing some poor guy anymore.
2) Both… both is good.
I have said many times that Robbie is an elegant Destiel shipper, but… damn! He always finds a way to surprise me. Dean gives Claire a birthday present, and it’s this:
The comedy film Caddyshack that Dean called “classic” in the episode and that totally represents him AND the book “The Enochian Myth” by C. Storey (I couldn’t get the rest of the name) that could very easily represent Cas.
Claire didn’t want to accept The Enochian Myth. It was Dean himself who took it and decided to put it in Claire’s bag anyway. So yeah, Robbie, I get you. Some people don’t accept the “Destiel” myth, which is not an A or B plot, it’s possibly a C plot… a C “story” (C. Storey). But you put it in anyway, right? (And we love you for that!)
3) So much Destiel
We got concerned boyfriend Cas, the married couple scene. (Seriously, the moment when Dean got “wifed” was glorious!) We also got Dean touching Cas’ shoulder, Dean’s line “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day” along with the Dean and Claire bonding moments (which all in all gave us some sort of canon dadstiel). And of course, we got Dean defending Cas and saying he’d saved the world. I really can’t complain!
4) Farewell, Claire
The episode seems to close the arc for Claire. She’s going to be with Jody, but most probably we won’t see her again. I think the song Robbie chose to end the episode makes that pretty clear:
In the twilight glow I see her Blue eyes crying in the rain When we kissed goodbye and parted I knew we’d never meet again
Love is like a dying ember Where only memories remain Through the ages I’ll remember Blue eyes crying in the rain
In conclusion, I loved Angel Heart. Every time I know Robbie is the writer of an episode, I expect something good, and he never disappoints. Now let’s brace ourselves for what’s coming next week: an episode by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner. Expect the worst and you’ll be fine!
The Gems that make up the Diamond Authority *Theory
Steven bomb 4 full of wonderful episodes where we learn the background history of the crystal gems a little, and have some fun but also it had very interesting information of the history of the Diamonds. So here I will like to get into more detail about this because I have some very enthralling thoughts, and maybe to include more proof that Pink Diamond was Rose quartz or not (although this isn’t my ideal focus it will probably end up being)
So shall we?
We learn in the episode “The Answer” that Blue Diamond was on earth and was probably the only one in control of turning the earth into another one of the Diamond Authority’s colony because she is the only Diamond to be mentioned in Garnet’s love story. And because Peridot looks at the original plans for the earth it shows us how the earth was meant to be turned into another colony, and Hollowed out as Ranoldo predicted but a little too late…maybe?
While we also see her murals on the moon, along with the other diamonds where only the most elite gems can enter. Looking at her mural people have said that Blue Diamond was holding the earth, like this mural of Blue Diamond looks as though she is holding the earth which is where she was in Garnet’s story. My only doubt is that it looks like it has a ring around it like Saturn(you can see that it is right below the 1st planet under her hand). Which earth does not have but it could be any of those planets she has that are earth but there is too little detail to confirm it.
With this information it is likely that each Diamond was in charge of turning a planet, earth in this example into another colony which means that it is possible each diamond had their own set of planets in which they were in control of or on other terms each diamond were assigned a planet specific to what that diamond was best at doing. I can believe this is true because everything we’ve seen up to now about the way a gem do, make, or dress is connected to their gem’s personality or what they were made for. Like the Crystal gems rooms are connected to how their gems are made, so with that said maybe creating colonies is what Blue Diamond was made for or one of her highest trait that lacks in the other Diamonds because according to Peridot they are flawless beings.
We also see Yellow Diamond’s mural as well.
She also has a set of planets herself, though we can’t say what her job was or her purpose that made up the great Diamond Authority due to little information. However with the information we do have I have come to a conjecture.
Because Peridot describes her in these three words reasonable, rational, and efficient decider, it is that she was more likely responsible for the advancement in gem technology. Seeing the logical if the gems just keep working the faster production and the better beneficial technology from it an example of this is when Peridot speaks to Yellow Diamond in person after giving her report she says she will send her off to her next mission. Being reasonable of the choices she makes as to how she will be sure everyone will do their work properly and efficiently she is the ideal gem for advancing their weapons, repairing broken things such as warps, that wasn’t able before, and maybe even reconstructing shattered and or corrupted gems. Though I don’t know how she efficiently makes sure everything is completed in her way and as to what consequences are held for not.
It could be that her planets were meant for that purpose. Leading on perhaps this is why the cluster is planted in the earth. But if the planet was assigned to Blue Diamond why was a plan that only could be thought by a magnificent gem as of Yellow Diamond is planted on earth where they wanted a colony to be at.
yes The Rebellion and Rose Quartz
We all know that Rose Quartz lead the rebellion but it is also theorized that she was in fact part of the Diamond Authority, while some doubt others like me can believe this is true.
If you take a look at these picture you can see what I mean and at the least see this isn’t just a coincidence.
this is the Diamond Authority’s symbol from the homeworld ship
and this is the Diamond Authority’s symbol from the sky arena
That includes another Diamond pink and most relate-able to Rose Quartz and Pearls says this is the sky arena where one of the first battles for earth started
and I can take that as consideration because doesn’t this
look strikingly similar to this
not to mention this
I know I’ll have doubters that the sky arena could possibly be the place Garnet story first took place. BUT
I can say that the way it is designed and the pillars that are so similar to the one in Garnet story could genuinely be the place, not only that but what happens in Garnet story is Pearl and Rose putting on a small attack on the Homeworld gems. With that said The Sky arena had to be built before Rose’s Rebellion because now Pink D is no longer included as part of the new Homeworld gems Authority Symbol honestly what else could have happened?
Then there is this
another Diamond Authority symbol in a Diamond temple where the war for the Earth took place. I can say this had to be built during the war because pink diamond is no longer included and it is such a coincidence that When Pink Diamond is gone Rose’s Rebellion starts to take its heights.
There’s also a teaser of Pink Diamond in the old Diamond Base
Where Pink Diamond symbol is also included. I rather not go into any other Detail as to whether Rose was Pink Diamond because she isn’t exactly my focus point.
In other terms this picture I find the most interesting out of all and what I really find the most fun to go into detail with.
Yes White Diamond We’ve seen her mural before too In the Diamond’s temple
Yes the gem with all the hands circling her White Diamond though we don’t see her in action like we saw Blue Diamond in Garnet’s story or Yellow Diamond in “Message Received” but her color consist of white and only 3 out of the Diamonds are shown resembling Yellow, Blue, and White. But if that is so why doesn’t the Gem we see In the old Diamond base look anything like the White Diamond we see at the Diamond’s temple. Instead she looks more like the one seen with Rose Quartz.
Only that the one seen with Rose Quartz gem is on her chest like the other 2 diamonds.
Or Maybe we have this whole mural thing wrong could it be that those are all the three diamonds.. or only 2 of 3? one being Yellow Diamond and the other two are the same gem, say if that is Blue Diamond and the other 2 are White and Yellow why doesn’t she look like Blue Diamond I mean look at her
Blue Diamond where’s a cover over her head not reveling her eyes. and the way the cape just sits over her head she couldn’t possibly possess that kind of hair otherwise you could see the shape it holds under that cover of hers.
Thinking more into what if the Diamond’s on the 3 gems seen in the mural chest are just symbols and not actually their gem just to identify that they were the Diamonds.
Because if there is only 4 murals of the Diamonds this one
has to be White Diamond who we don’t know much about and she holds her hand the same way the one in the mural does.
So I come to a conclusion that
The Diamond on the left and the Diamond seen with Rose Quartz are the same gem and could be that White Diamond on the left is a old form and the one seen with Rose is her new form after regenerating.
Additionally the color pallet of the Diamond temple is heavily influenced on The shades of white. Just look at it
You can see her head White Diamond’s head and with that she is doing the same pose with her hands we’ve seen at the old Diamond’s base and in the mural of the Diamond’s temple. The way she does that seems to symbolize power, now it could be that the gem powering up the device is White Diamond gem and she is corrupted but still being useful to power up devices like Lapis was gem being able to power up the mirror she was trapped in. Then she does have the little upside down diamond on her head.
look at it though you cannot deny that that gem isn’t White Diamond but still it doesn’t explain who this is if that gem is White D
To sum this up I think the gem in the Diamond’s temple was White Diamond though in the murals her gem wasn’t on her head like the one in the old Diamond’s Base it could of been left out for detail and the diamond’s on the chest was simply to identify that, that gem was part of The Diamond Authority because her color pallet looks so similar to the one seen in “It Could’ve been Great” if the lightnings where neutral you could tell. Though the lack of detail in the mural at Diamonds temple they still put at upside down triangle on her head not her chest because they put her gem there. To what she holds between her hands looks like another Planet but could also symbolize power and because she does that maybe that is why her gem is placed below the head that powered up the Diamond’s temple instead of where it belonged to symbolize the power.
Now that we have discussed all of the Diamond’s this is what I have to make up of all this Blue Diamond the Diamond responsible for the colonies as in creating gems, Yellow Diamond the one behind the advancement in technology, White Diamond the one who possess the most power strength, and Rose Quartz formally known as Pink Diamond Love and Peace which binds everything and everyone together. I can see why they call them The Great Diamond Authorities where each Diamond lacks another Diamond has the key personality or trait that allows them to work together perfectly and create such a great Colony.
That being said Peridot says something interesting while talking to Steven in the car “Everygem has their strength and weaknesses but not them, their absolutely, totally, completely, flawless beings, especially my diamond.>:3″
She says especially my diamond like there is more than one so perhaps just maybe there is another Diamond alive and perhaps just maybe….
isn’t just a shipping reference of Blue Diamond and Yellow Diamond but that There are Two Diamonds left Blue Diamond and Yellow Diamond…..
I honestly can’t believe you read this whole thing and I really appreciate it and hopefully you didn’t find this a waste of time.
