From Pink Diamond to Rose Quartz – Redemption in Steven Universe

Steven Universe is a series all about redemption, but after the movie a lot of fans consider Pink Diamond to be irredeemable. Thanks to how our knowledge of her started with her most mature state and moved into her deeper and deeper past, our most recent memories of Rose are now of how she was thousands of years in the past.

Is Rose Quartz beyond redemption? Of course not: she was already redeemed thousands of years before the events of the show. The entire time Steven Universe was on air Spinel may have been waiting for Pink Diamond, but Rose had also grown beyond who she was back on Homeworld.
