Ok... by now, almost everyone has seen the last Steven Bomb and the first episode of season 5... no big deal. However, the Crewniverse released a promo for a 1 hour special event on Memorial Day. It's packed with suspense, intrigue, and a boatload of information that nearly killed everyone in the fandom. Here's a link for those who are ready for it:
For me, it made me feel as if my insides are being split in two. I already have a few ideas about what could happen, mainly in regards to Steven's fate. I am 80 - 90% sure that Steven will not die. First off, he is the namesake of the show; if he dies, it's over. Secondly, it would suck; we would be left wondering about the fate of Earth and its inhabitants. Lastly, even if he does die, he would probably regenerate or be reborn; it is not an uncommon cliche in heroic movies, as it symbolizes the hero's newfound strength and his righteousness. This show is, after all, a story of a loving boy who's less-than-perfect mother inadvertently left behind a war on hiatus. That is my biggest concern. Everything else is world-building and character development.
There is one other thing: White Diamond. I, for some odd-ball reason, think that she is going to be the most reasonable, or at least the most detached, of the diamonds. Yellow Diamond want to destroy all remnants of Pink Diamond and the Gem War while Blue Diamond has a personal vendetta against Rose Quartz. If White Diamond is the leader of law and order, then she could possibly see that there is more to Steven than his gemstone. If worse-comes-to-worse, White Diamond may keep him as a trophy until he passes away of natural causes, and then give Rose Quartz the sentence.
Please tell me what you guys think.
