Steven, at the end of the episode, broke my heart. I think he is still struggling with his identity as a half-gem. And it seriously broke my heart. Do you think it will carry over into the next episode?

I think it was sort of a reminder to him just how in-between he feels. Steven is literally the embodiment of being stuck between two worlds! This has been an ongoing theme since the show began so I wouldn’t be surprised if it carries over into tomorrow’s episode.

Me again, back to theorizing Rose Quartz! This one more geared towards Lion's relationship to Rose and fantasy magical practices! And a certain context in an episode. Lion is Rose's familiar. Familiars (as noted by a book series in SU) are invisible to all but the "owner" Thus when Rose was still present to maintain the master/familiar relationship no one could see Lion. BUT, when Steven got close with Rose's gem, Lion attached, and since Steven is unskilled, Lion is now visible! - WIP Theory.

Hmmm, interesting! I sort of like the idea of Lion being present for Rose but invisible to others, either as a secret or physically.

Steven/Rose theory. 1.) Steven has every capability a gem has, as which has so far been proven. 2.) Because he should never have to "poof" Rose likely never thought about what might happen because A.) she is still inside the gem, her body is gone, but her conscious mind is there and B.) there has been no exposure to Gem/Humans ever. thus 3.) When Steven poofs, Rose will temporarily be back til Steven heals, to protect his Gem while he recovers. When it is time for him to return, she says bye.

Moderate continuation of previous ask. I feel that if I were writing the story, that is what I would do to bring back Rose, because it would be wonderfully bittersweet, and bring up a thousand and one complications to the relationship between Steven and the CGems, as well as his father. AND it would allow further complications to his identity to Homeworld. I would love a scene between Rose and Connie where Rose learns so much about Connie, and her love bleeds though to Steven. It would be cute.

See that kind of bittersweet complication I think is perhaps the ONLY way I’d enjoy seeing Rose introduced in such a way. Knowing that fighting for Steven was kind of her last fight, and still Steven never meeting his mother, that’s raw. I oddly enough enjoy that twist, even if it defeats my “WELL THAT WASN’T HER PLAN” because really how can you plan for what comes after death, or what the Gem equivalent is.

I’d accept that, but having Steven die and Rose returning is just to me reverse Bruce Wayne style angst that I don’t desire.
