Steven Universe Theory
Okay, I’ve had this idea ever since the last Steven bomb and I keep waiting for someone to propose it because I’m too lazy to write it down. But, I haven’t seen anyone say anything so I guess I’ll just write down my thoughts.
-beings can be brought back from the dead via magical rose quartz tears
-humans can be brought back this way
-Rose Quartz has this power.
So throughout the series there’s been a lot of symbolism showing Steven as a Jesus figure. The main one that comes to mind is in Three Gems and a Baby, I believe. Greg, wearing a blue blanket, was holding Steven with the three crystal gems around him (like Mary holding Jesus and the three wise men, or perhaps the shepherds). There’s other examples but I can think of them right now.
Now, if you’re familiar with the story of Jesus, you would know that Jesus died and is resurrected. If we apply this idea to Steven, we could have a very interesting ending.
Say Steven, in the final battle, dies. He’s surrounded by all the allies he’s made, both gems and humans, all mourning his death. That’s when Steven’s gem falls out of his stomach and begins to glow. Before their eyes, Rose Quartz reforms. She’s amazed to see so many new gems and humans fighting side by side. She sees Greg and Pearl crying on eachother’s shoulders. She looks back to see Steven’s still body and realizes what’s happened. She falls to the ground and hugs her dead son, shedding her magical healing tears. The fall on Steven’s face and begin to glow.
Say it with me. PlNK STEVEN!!
I would love it if that’s how the show ended. That way both Steven and Rose Quartz could exist. I’m not saying it’s gonna happen, I just think it’d be awesome.
