Everyone remember when the show first started, the phrase “Believe in Steven” kept getting tossed around in promotional stuff?
I’ve always wondered why it never showed up in the actual show. It seemed like an important thing, at the time.
The closest thing we ever got to it was Lapis saying, “All they care about is the Earth. But I never believed in this place…”
However, with the new clips from SDCC floating around, a lot of people have concluded that Lapis is probably going to leave the barn to get away from the next big “gem war”.
There’s also two specials coming around that are called “Change Your Mind” and “Reunited”. Again, people are thinking that these are important to Lapis joining the Crystal Gems, or something similar.
Lapis, however, still has her reservations about Earth. What she DOESN’T have reservations about is Steven. She cares about him deeply, since he was the one to free her from the mirror, and be her first friend. So, my theory is…
Someone is going to tell Lapis to “Believe in Steven” instead of “Fight for the Earth”. Who’s going to tell her that? I can only guess. But If I had to pick someone… I would pick the Crystal Gem who decided to follow Steven Universe, not Rose Quartz. Someone who doesn’t really seem to hold any stock in Rose, or the previous war. Someone who is also quite close to Steven. This person also happens to be a good friend to Lapis…
Or maybe it was just a promotional thing and I’m overthinking it.
(Either way, even if Lapis isn’t 100% on-board with the Earth, I do think she would do anything to save that kid.)
But that’s my theory… A GAME THEORY. Thanks for reading. lol
