Sophia and GC13 do a second hype/speculation episode in a row, this time talking about #StevenBomb4 which will be starting on January 4 (not much longer to go…).
We’re ready for backstory, we’re ready for feels, and you know we’re ready for the hiatus to be over. There’s a good chance that we’ll get the first of our three long stories as the very first episode, though we’re not sure if the second episode will let us know how old Steven is or not…
If you haven’t already, make sure to head to our Tumblr account and send us your trivia questions for next week’s trivia episode. GC13 will be asking, and the others will be answering. 🙂
So the specific title of the last episode is “Log Date 7 15 2” which helps our timeline a bit. It makes a little more sense now that “Warp Tour” was date 3 1 2, and Keeping it Together was 6 5 2, but Too Far was 7 11 2 (rather than seven thousand one hundred twelve). So if gem timekeeping is similar in nature to human timekeeping (specifically the US system), that might mean we go from “Too Far” to “Log Date” all in the matter of a few days (although gem days might not equal Earth days, given Peridot’s line in “Too Far” that “It’s the third rotation of the Earth…”).
The other big thing I’m wondering (which I have 0 expectation to be answered in this bomb) is a question about how much Earth history differs given the gem war in the past. We’ve already seen a world apparently without Florida, and the human population might be much smaller than our own. Have humans been to the moon in the Steviverse? Did gem technology allow them to do so sooner, or did they insist on trying to get to space ASAP in case gemkind came back to finish what they started? Come to think of it, I should probably watch “Space Race” to see if any of that is addressed.
World without Florida? Probably not, we’ve seen earth from space in “Jailbreak” they drew it one hundred percent accurate to Earth. The drawings though haven’t been and you can’t really be sure. Also any change in Ocean Patterns from what happened to make us could have prevented the evolution of Humans sure this is a cartoon but still!
Speaking of “The Answer”….since Garnet is telling the story of how Ruby and Sapphire first met, I would be very surprised if they were NOT on different sides. Ruby as rebel and Sapphire as diplomat.
When Peridot had locked herself in the bathroom, we saw a brief moment of Sapphire playing diplomat through Garnet….until Ruby lost her cool with the “War Machine” comment.
I agree with other theories about how perhaps the diamonds control gems based on color. My guess is that Ruby worked for Rose as a manual laborer. Someone probably needed to move those kinder-garden injectors into place and they look real heavy. I feel like Ruby’s weapon was actually just ‘work gloves’ originally. I don’t think she was originally meant for fighting, just doing some heavy lifting…..which is cute when you think about how Ruby’s and Sapphire’s fusion dance consists of lifts.
Also, Rose’s ability to control vegetation seems like a really good power to have when colonizing planets. She could have cleared away vegetation from the kinder-garden sites or (a more sinister move) starved local inhabitants by removing their vegetation food supply. O_o
Also, I think Ruby and Sapphire were not standing next to each other in the picture. I think they are facing each other based on the different lighting in the background of each.
WOW! I love listening to this. This is great. Thank you for your time!
Lol the soundcloud is behind by 9 eps. Also, HYPE FOR SU!!
OMG!!! the new clips that were shown! *dies*
Things so far we know from the new clip:
Steven is turning 14 on his birthday
Peridot is attacking the Crystal Gems at some point
Yellow Diamond is either showing up or having some kind of personal device sent to Earth
There will be multiple Rubies shown
Something happens to Steven that makeshe everyone gasp.
In one clip, his clothes are visibly smaller. Also the part where it shows Peridot attacking the Gems, Steven is visibly upset and apparently they are retreating to the temple. I don’t know about anyone else, but I need this StevenBomb now!!!
And for a split second when they are jumping away from the car that Peridot threw, it looks like Pearl is holdin a diamond shaped Gem. Oh. My. Lanta.
