Who shattered Pink Diamond?
So lots of people started to blame Yellow Diamond but this case isnt as clear as this.
First of all while
Yellow Diamond seems suspicious we should also remember that Yellow even in the
past seemed to be very angry and immidately jump to conclusions. YD holds her
emotions back and she mourns by using anger and revenge. YD wants to punish
that gem who killed PD but her judgement is clouded by her anger. Also remember
how the Diamonds were described in the past.
Blue Diamond a stoic ruler who
couldnt stand imperfections and weakness and who rarely showed emotions (just look at
how Sapphire and Ruby described her), what we see now is the effect and changes
what PD’s death caused in her so it isnt hard to imagine what PD’s death caused
in Yellow Diamond.
We know from Peridot that her Diamond suppose to be the most rational one but now that we saw her reactions she behaves very differently or is she? When Peridot called her she behaved very official and someone who would ask logical questions but her behaviour immediately changed when Peridot started to speak about the Earth. I think that in the past YD was actually the most logical one but her sister’s death changed her and filled her with regrets and anger.
Just remember her song. Does this gem look and sound like somebody who killed her sister?
For me no instead she sounds like somebody who cant bare to thought that her sister died and who wants immediate revenge so she can close of this part of her life as soon as possible. She wants to do this quickly because she feels that her pain will break her and not because she tries to hide that she killed her sister.
Secondly as Zircon said something is very suspicious here.
How PD’s gems didnt notice anything or tried to stop Rose and why lots of them
dont plan to get revenge but they seem satisfied with their lives elsewhere? We
only saw BD, YD and Jasper to care and want to get revenge.
Also remember what
Eyeball asked from Jasper (Amethyst) the first place before she admitted she
witnessed Rose killing PD? Where were you when it happened?- My question is why
would ask this at the first place? It seemed like Eyeball wanted to make sure
that Jasper was there or not, but why? Especially because she suspected that
Jasper wanted a closure. What if that Eyeball and other gems were in part of
the cover up and Eyeball wanted to make sure that Jasper was in it too or that
she wasnt there so she could continue the lie…
Third. There are things that still dont make that much sense. Why did the CGs tell Steven that it was Rose who did it while we know that she was innocent? Werent they there or they just assumed Rose did it and she never told them the truth? Garnet said that Rose alway did everything for the Earth and for others so why would she cover something like this up especially because Pink’s death was the reason that the Diamonds used corruption and the cluster against Earth? Who did she try to protect with this?
Fourth. Why Pearl reacted so badly on the Moon base? She looked like somebody who saw something horrible but she also doesnt want to speak about it. Lots people say that it might have been Pearl because she could get close to PD and she also uses swords and she is important enough for Rose to take the blame for but how she could cover it up? Would the other gems deny that it was a Pearl who killed their leaders because of shame? And why would Pearl still held PD’s symbole if she did it? Although for me it is a little bit suspicious that we have never saw her shapeshifting. Maybe she used Rose appearance to make her a hero? Still was she strong enough to crush a diamond?
Then who could do it and why? I have two (maybe three) theories about this.
1. It was White Diamond.
We didnt really see her but we see her
influence through the show.
Remember the temple pictures? We saw Rose
Quartz holding a Diamond against somebody who looks like White Diamond.
What if Pink Diamond took part in the rebelion but she did it under cover. Maybe Rose managed to influence her or it happened the other way around. Maybe PD didnt like how things went on HW and she wanted to creat a whole different system and colony but White Diamond found it out or she just wanted to get rid off her because she opposed her ideas so she killed her.
She also had enough influence to cover it up.
And if the theory about Pearl was White Diamond’s Pearl first is true and later on PD accepted her then maybe she wasnt the only gem who PD managed to get away form WD and maybe she was losing many of her followers so she had to kill her sister to mantain her power. It is also very suspicious that only the two other sister care about the killer of PD. And we also saw that WD as the more dominant diamond in the corruption and even in the trial platform too. So she is very suspicious for me.
2. PD’s followers
So we heard from Eyeball (and other witnesses also said too) that she saw Rose Quartz shatter PD but if it isnt true and Rose wasnt there and neither of them Diamonds committed the crime then only the followers left.
Remember the temple pictures again?
It seems like the hands go toward a diamond. For others this seemed like a praise and the sign of admiration but for me it looked more like gems wanted to tear apart their diamond. It wouldnt be the first time that people=gems rebel against their ruler and kill them. They could have the time and could cover it up and they dont seem to mind PD’s absence that much (except Jasper) and it would also make sense why Pearl was in shock and why she fled and why would Rose cover it up especially if some of her friends took part in it, maybe the rebels managed to convince the other gems to take part in the rebelion and they wanted to get rid off PD. I mean it probably wasnt only Bismuth who thought shattering a diamond will bring peace and freedom.
But we still have to answer lots of questions like how? They probably needed much more strenght to accomplish this but were they really able to do it? Maybe with fusion or they used some kind of weapon?
3+. Which is a combination of the two.
WD managed to use PD’s followers and the
rebels to turn against PD and helped them out to shatter her. This seems the most possible for me.
I still have questions tho. Why were the pearls so suprised about PD’s Pearl? Did they just forget about her or assumed that she died?
And why did the Diamonds get rid off PD’s symbole? It seems that somebody works very hard to destroy even the memory of Pink Diamond.
