ARE YOU MY DAD
okay i’ve delayed this for long enough
IM SERIOUSLY SCARED FOR ONION’S HEALTH
i mean, i know sadie is in danger as well. and onion isn’t exactly my favorite character.
BUT COME ON
I WOULD BE SCARED TOO
with that why don’t i give my analysis of the promo?
SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN
DON’T GIVE ME THAT CUTESY STEVEN AND CONNIE STUFF (actually please do i enjoy it quite a lot,) I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TRYING TO HIDE
First of all, I think it should be worth noting that they give us that vital flashback to the Zoo arc. It further establishes what is likely to happen in this bomb. It causes you to remember that one Yellow Diamond line. You know the one.
“Then there’s still time.”
I will admit, it’s odd how this hasn’t been addressed earlier, but I’m willing to let that slide for now. You can look at all though SU critic blogs if you want to hear commentary on season four, and pacing, and whatnot.
CN YOU CAN’T HIDE THE TRUTH FROM ME
I’m calling it right now. This is going to be the vehicle of transportation for the two new gems being introduced, the Homeworld gems. Why else would they show this ride? Sure, it could be to set the mood, but of course, I want to see something more.
It’s obvious what’s happening here. Sadie goes missing, blah blah blah. Can we just talk about the way the promo presents this scene in general? Honestly, it’s masterfully chilling, with Sadie walking into the darkness, and Steven narrating, confused, “Sadie never came home last night?”
I also think the soundtrack at this part really amplifies the mood as well, SERIOUSLY I CAN’T PRAISE THIS SHOW’S SOUNDTRACK ENOUGH I SHOULD MKE ANOTHER POST DEDICATED PURELY TO SOUNDTRACK APPRECIATION
Ah yes. The only time we see Garnet in this entire promo. I find this rather intriguing, as it could mean multiple things. One, the most likely, they didn’t want to put in as many Garnet shots. But what’s the fun in that?
There’s also a possibility that another The Return will be pulled, and Ruby and Sapphire will be poofed. Also interesting, especially when you consider the possible parallels that could be produced to the hand ship’s arrival. This could be something that motivates Steven to give himself up to the diamonds, (which I’ll get to in a sec.)
After all, is it really realistic steven will do it out of the kindness of his heart?
okay maybe it sort of is it’s steven after all, BUT I WANT TO SPICE THINGS UP
I’m willing to bet that this has something to do with the two new gems. (I’m not going to say their names for spoiler’s sake.) After all, Connie is totally panicked, and even Steven looks pretty distressed. If this was just some normal corrupted gem, I can make a safe bet they would be slightly calmer. Not entirely calm, but much less panicked than they are now. You dig?
There is a lot of speculation on who Steven is trying to call. I’m willing to conclude that it’s Greg, not Sadie, for one reason. The promo says “Sadie never came home last night?” Why would he wait until the next evening to try and contact her?
On that note, PLEASE DON’T LET GREG TO BE TAKEN AGAIN, I DON’T THINK MY HEART COULD STAND IT
Then we see an Onion missing poster. Obvious enough meaning, so I didn’t screenshot it.
A lot of people say Pearl is crying because of what Steven is about to do/ what Steven just did. I mostly agree with them on that, it makes the most logical sense.
I’d like to propose another teory. A much likely one, but, god, I would die of both happiness and despair if it became true.
Mystery Girl, as mentioned multiple times in Last One Out Of Beach City, looking startlingly like a Rose Quartz. All of the Rose Quartzes are either shattered or bubbled in the room we see Blue Diamond in, in That Will Be All, (at least, that’s what can be inferred.)
Imagine the diamonds find a human who looks so much like a Rose Quartz, it’s uncanny? They’re going to want to take that human and investigate.
Just a really far fetched guess, but all the same, if it came true, I would collapse.
Same color palette as the scene with Pearl in the water and Steven on hisphone, but notice that Pearl’s hair isn’t wet. I’m sure that gem clothing and hair doesn’t dry magically in the span of afew seconds, so this leads me to believe that the scene with Pearl in the water takes place after Steven beams himself up. (a la BEAM ME UP SCOTTY)
Okay, so there’s a lot going on here. First of all, note that this light is yellow. This will be important later.
Second, notice how not only is Steven leaving of his own free will, he’’s giving the thumbs up. It’s obvious that he isn’t being taken, and if I had to guess, this could be some deal arranged with the two new gems? (not saying their names for spoilers sake.)
This is all speculation, after all.
Honestly, I think Steven should be grateful he wasn’t just knocked out and whisked away into space.
OKAY SO BACK TO THIS SCENE
Notice how the entire scene seems to be basked in, you guessed it, yellow light.
Okay, one could argue that this is simply daytime, hence the lighting. However, why would the two gems take Onion away in broad daylight? It’s kidnapper 101, especially considering this area seems wide open.
No, it makes more sense that the light we’re seeing is coming from the ship Steven is entering, which could also be the ride seen earlier in the promo. There are quite a lot of connections to be made, aren’t there?
“She wouldn’t have wanted this. But I do.”
Steven is turning himself in. End of discussion.
NOW WE GET TO THE INTERESTING PART
ARE YOU MY DAD
IT TOOK ME FOREVER TO REALIZE BUT DOESN’T THE VOICE SOUND LIKE PEPPA PIG?
I really believe, like many people, that this is one of the gems that has come to find Steven. (once again, no names.) Confused, they might try to find Steven’s dad by saying my dad, instead of, you know, Greg. Because that’s the only way they know him, my dad.
Of course, I will die of laughter if this turns out to be Onion’s voice. No wonder he hasn’t talked. Whatever the case, I simply can’t wait until MAY FREAKING THE 8TH
