With everybody asking questions on Lars’s immortality, I decided to do my own research.
When Steven listened to Lars’s heartbeat it took 6 seconds per beat or 12 bpm (Beats Per Minute). This is far less than the average bpm for a human around Lars’s age. It would usually be 70-100 bpm on average (to keep it simple I used 80 bpm). This means his heart is beating at 15% the average for a boy his age. So his body is functioning at 15% of the time it normally would be. So if his body ages at that rate given the average male life expectancy being around 80 years would mean he will live to 1,200 years!
Applying this to Lion is pretty easy, the average bpm of a healthy lion is about 60 bpm, giving our lion 9 bpm. Lions in the wild live to be about 16 making our lion live to about 240 years.In “Buddy’s Book” Rose is seen with lions and many people theorize one of them died and that’s how Lion was created. In “Historical Friction” it is stated that beach city was founded nearly 200 years ago. So that would make lion around 200 years old give or take.
Some people have said that a number of leaves on the each tree represents the amount of time they have left, Lars’s tree is full and young, while Lion’s has only a few clumps of leaves. This corresponds quite nicely, with Lars having over a 1,000 years left and lion having only about 40.

I’ll just be sharing some choice dialogue from my kid cousins as they watched SU Wanted because it encapsulates all the gut feelings so darn well.
The theory of what happens next as told by my 8 year-old cousin:
After they finish hugging, Steven will tell everything that happened. And then they’re all going to be like, “WHAAT” and Connie will say, “You left Lars!? We have to go back for him!”
So they all go back through Lion’s mane (my ten year-old cousin shouts “WITH SADIE”) and go to Homeworld then they see Lars and the new gems. Then they have adventures on Homeworld and then everybody goes home the end.
On all the Lars-will-die theories, my ten year-old cousin says 100% calmly:
If Rebecca Sugar makes Lars die I’m going to be very angry with her.
She also says:
Steven’s life is so complicated. If everyone expected that much of me, I would be crying already.
And this gem, after watching Lars’ Head she says:
Can you play the next episode please? (And when I said there wasn’t one yet) Now I’m sad. If I didn’t watch the episodes I wouldn’t be sad but then if I didn’t watch the episodes I would be sad I didn’t watch them.
Both my cousins have been going on and on since then about how it’s as if there’s no clear “bad guy” in the show. It does my heart so much joy.
So do the really really loud NOOOOOOOOOOOO’s every time something bad happens to anyone at all.
NEW LEAKS!!!!!!! (SPOILER, SPOILER)
by The Amazing Axolotl
Peridot and Lapis will change into Crystal Gems, but since they are pretty safe in the barn and have strong powers, they are exceptionally hard to poof. So basically, they will reform as crystal gems if they did poof. Rebecca is planning something for Jasper…
The Gems off colors:
Rhodonite (Pearl and Ruby fusion)
Rutile (The twins)
- They are 2 Zircons (one next to Steven and another next to the Diamonds)
- The “White Diamond Statue” in the title cards is not a Statue
- Rutile is not a forced fusion, but a gem deformity
- Ruby and Pearl (Rhodonite) used to work for a gem named Morganite
