Rather than take each episode individually, we’re going to take advantage of the packaging of six episodes together into one big #StevenBomb and do some posts on the lore implications of, and speculation from, what we’ve learned this week.
These posts will come out over the next couple of weeks, and will be linked to in the master #StevenBomb lore implications post (this one) and the master #StevenBomb speculation post.
- The homeworld still remembers the rebellion
- Rose could only save a few of her closest friends
These two facts actually say quite a lot. It is very likely that the rebellion ended with the homeworld evacuating the last of its soldiers and destroying the Crystal Gems from orbit.
- Rose Quartz inspired deep personal loyalty
- Rose Quartz was widely known
Jasper would have recognized her, though they had never met. Lapis Lazuli probably knew about Rose’s healing powers if nothing else. Rose Quartz continues to be a larger-than-life figure, able to cast a shadow over the series from beyond the grave.
