It's SDCC today, and apparently the Steven Universe panel is playing the entire next episode. So beware spoilers.

There's to be a TV movie "soon." No further details.

Matt Burnett says the next episode (the one that SDCC attendees got to see today) will be available "later today or tomorrow."

A preview of the next Boom comics miniseries which a lot of fans are speculating is setting up the plot of the movie, so maybe spoilers?

Boy, things are moving fast.

That one quick shot of Connie's dad looking at... that... pretty well sum up my thoughts on this one.



Well that and how this show's release schedule reminds me of some old NES RPG where there's so much randomness to the encounter rate you can get in 3 fights in 3 steps then cross a continent without hitting a 4th.

Such lore. White Diamond stands unmoving inside her spaceship that is shaped like her torso and head. Her Pearl speaks with her own voice, rather than the voice of the other Pearls. Aforesaid Pearl appears either to be cracked or corrupted. The Pearl's gem is situated in the stomach, like Pink Diamond's was. White Diamond's own gem seems to be in her forehead (like that of our own Pearl, who is colored white), but we can't see its condition because of her incandescent face, so speculation to the effect that it is cracked is valid. Homeworld itself is cracked, now that we can see it for the first time.

The sinister faux-motherliness is betrayed by the total lack of concern for the being before her. She does not hear, she only commands. Unlike Blue and Yellow Diamonds, White Diamond's expressed emotion is utterly at odds with her behavior, which was to immediately and summarily imprison Steven. Where Yellow and Blue are mere tyrants, White seems poised to personify (following Havel) the post-totalitarian system of Homeworld itself, in which those occupying positions of authority are no freer or less expendable than those in lower positions.

So good to finally get a name for Nephrite. (Also namedropped Hessonite, one of whom was the villain from the video games.) She was Pink's subordinate.

It appears that White has been using her ship as the Royal Palace. I wonder why she ensconced herself for so long...

The four diamonds' ships combining to form one big ship is one thing, but where does the green hand ship that Jasper and Peridot came in at the end of season 1 fit in? Did they just... also make more?

If you go to the trouble of designing a spaceship shaped like a hand, you might as well re-use the blueprints.

Damn, this is such a good show. And what really impresses me, as I said with the last episode, is that the show remains good whatever pace it tries to go at. And here it goes with lightning speed when I'd argue that the individual events Yellow and Blue dealing with the truth, the Diamonds temporarily healing a corrupted gem, finding Rose's legs would usually be their own episodes. So much goodness. I love Rose's legs ship (which actually makes sense because while she was beloved by Yellow and Blue, she was at the bottom of the Diamond Authority pecking order) and the fact that apparently Pink Diamond couldn't get them to look any more dignified than Steven. Which means down the line he's going to do something super bad-ass with them that Pink couldn't.

White Diamond is definitely scary as fuck before we even see her.
I didn't catch who plays her but the acting and animation really backs up the build up. Based on the fact that the long speculated fan theory was White was a fusion of Pink, Blue and Yellow and she's been described as being a level above the other Diamonds, who thinks she's a fusion of other Blue, Yellow and Pink (or Red) Diamonds.


Also trying to figure out the significance of Blue and Steven healing corruptions with bodily fluid's while Yellow just uses... friction? Vibrations?

Looking forward to where we go from here.

I would say that particular fan theory never held the slightest bit of water because it completely ignored the whole metaphor behind fusing as being in a committed relationship and this variation is even weaker on those grounds, particularly when we have this whole Voltron thing going on.

This most recent episode moved too fast for me. I think the events of the previous episode needed more time to breathe, personally.

Agreed. There was at least two episodes' worth of material there.

Something bugging me... both Blue and Yellow Diamondsí Pearls match their masters gem placement. But for White and Pink, itís reversed. Also, White Pearlís outfit matches Pink Diamondís normal outfit as well...

Note also how White Diamond's Pearl has curly hair like Pink Diamond, our Pearl has pointy hair like White Diamond.

There's some supplementary material that offers additional hints related to this line of thinking as well, to the effect that our Pearl wasn't Pink Diamond's first Pearl. Also some jewelry facts: it's relatively easy to tint a pearl to a more desirable color such as pink, but taking a colored one and bleaching it white is a much more difficult process that risks damaging the pearl.

Come to think of it... Why was that one colony Stevonnie got marooned on unfinished? Yellow doesn't seem the type to leave things undone.

Probably should be covering up spoilers, especially for an episode that hasn't aired on TV yet.
