Oh. Oh my. Someone bubble this bomb and throw it clear: it won’t stop going off!

We… We need a moment. Another hugely noteworthy episode, with a great look at Gem leadership. It’s the kind of episode we dream about.

    “What do you know about the Earth?”

    “Apparently, more than you. YOU CLOD.”

    The Peridemption is REAL guys. I’m a wreck here.

    Diamond’s Pearls copy the placement of the it diamonds gems and their hairstyles AND their color.
    White Diamond’s gem is on her head and she has spike hair and is white.
    Both of those things coincide with our Pearl.
    The Diamond Authority’s insignia has White Diamond on top = Forehead Gem, Yellow and Blue Diamond in the middle = chest gems, and Pink Diamond on the bottom = below the chest gem placement.

    I’m just going to leave this here..

      • Manny Fleurmond on January 7, 2016 at 5:01 pm

      The clues, they are laid out. We just got to put them together. Pearl probably either belonged to White Diamond, though you can’t say that 100% Show could have just been a random Pearl who just so happened to have a forehead gem… awww, who am I kidding?

        • Stormii on January 7, 2016 at 6:34 pm

        I’m thinking perhaps White Diamond had something to do with the rebellion if it is the case of Pearl being WD’s. The reasoning behind how she came to be with Rose Quartz (Pink Diamond/PD’s soldier)

        • Sufan on January 7, 2016 at 10:49 pm

        Unlikely for two reasons. A. Her suit has a Pink Diamond symbol. B. Why would she be with Rose Quartz?

          • Rob on January 8, 2016 at 10:20 am

          Her spacesuit is not her default form and can be changed however she likes. She wouldn’t be forced to keep a white Diamond symbol on it.

          She’s with Rose because she’s a renegade. Can’t be that unless you belonged to a different team at one point.

            • SUfan on January 8, 2016 at 10:20 pm

            Why hasn’t she removed the Diamond?

      Her suit has a pink diamond symbol though. Kind of ruins this theory a bit. For it to fit, the suit should either have no symbol, a white diamond or the Crystal Gem star. A pink diamond, however, marks her as a servant of Pink Diamond or at least of somone on her Court.

      I think it is more likely that Pearl really was Rose’s Pearl (My Pearl, as she says in Rose’s Scabbard), but that Rose was a high ranking gem of the Pink Diamond Court instead of the actual Pink Diamond. Thus, Rose’s Pearl would “customised” by Rose, in a more white and pink tone instead of a compleate pink outfit.

      I also think it is a little early to extrapolate from only 2 pearls to how they all behave. From the Rubies, it seems like the position of the gem on the Gem is not really important (they are all over the place for the Rubies).

    Just put the episode out now, guys! I can’t till tomorrow for your discussion!!

    • peridactyl on January 7, 2016 at 6:18 pm

    This episode was awesome, but sadly it also confirms dat rose quartz can’t be pink diamond. She’s just too small, but on da upside, our pearl is highly probable dat she is white diamond’s pearl 😉

      • Scott on January 7, 2016 at 10:05 pm

      I had the same thought. BD and YD are too big for Rose Quartz to be Pink Diamond. Though there’s definitely some reason they haven’t shown us what she looks like yet.

      • Skyweir on January 8, 2016 at 9:57 am

      It is still possible for Rose to be Pink Diamond, though the theory has taken a hit. Still, there are a lot of information about Rose that does not fit her just being a normal quartz (think about her extreme power, her healing powers, her super-shield that deflects super-lasers, her ability to create sentien life (!)).

      One option is that Rose is who Pink Diamond became after she was poofed and reformed in a new form. We know from “Reformed” that gems can alter both their shape and size after being poofed, especially if they feel that they have changed a great deal in personality. The difference in the outlook of Pink Diamond, Gem Matriarch and Rose Quartz, Rebel Leader, would be huge, and as we know the Gems physical form is a reflection of how they feel about themselves. Example: Amathyst as a child when Rose was alive.

      So a Diamond see themselves as powerful and supreme leaders, so they appear huge and imposing.

      Pink Diamond might have had a crisis of consience on Earth, somehow gotten poofed and then taken on a radical restructuring of herself and her outlook, becoming Rose Quartz, a smaller but much more approachable and maternal figure with compassion for all life.

    • Jon P on January 7, 2016 at 7:57 pm

    The Gempire must be massive. Yellow Diamond had absolutely no idea how the Cluster was proceeding, nor had anyone received any transmissions about the Rose Quartz gem still being around. So many planets to colonize, they can’t be bothered to pay any special attention to one.

      • Wes on January 7, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      But not so large as to preclude a long-standing grudge. She specifically wants Earth to die. It’s almost as if she takes that old rebellion personally.

        • Matthew on January 7, 2016 at 10:03 pm

        She lost her entire family to a war with Earth.

    While this was an amazing episode, I did find it weird how quickly Peridot changed from fanatically dedicated to nervously unsure to straight up insulting Yellow Diamond.

      • Jon P on January 7, 2016 at 9:44 pm

      I definitely was thinking that for a bit, but there was the seed of doubt from Steven, quickly watered by the heaps of abuse YD was piling onto Peridot. Stuff like “You’ve failed in every part of your mission” and “I want that planet to DIE” which, you quickly realize, would include Peridot (since she’s just reported that her ship was destroyed). It’s not impossible to see her staying true to her Diamond, but she knows that YD just doesn’t give a crap about her, and no one’s going to come save her. When she starts to realize YD isn’t as infallible as she’s thought for however long… well, there’s an old saying “No zealot like a convert.” If she’s going to break with Homeworld, might as well do it in style.

        • Wes on January 8, 2016 at 12:41 am

        The planet’s death, there, wouldn’t include Peridot. YD offered to send a ship to pick her up… which Peridot refused, but the offer was there.

      • Skyweir on January 8, 2016 at 10:06 am

      Peridot didn’t really change her mind. As she tells Steven, she had a plan. It would be much better to make Earth a Gem colony that preserved the resource potentail of organic life, than to blow it up, that is the logical and rational thing to do. Peridot seems to think that YD will think the same. As she says, one Geoweapon is really not that important compared to a whole planet.

      It is actually a very good plan. The drill is a crapshot, a wild swing that likely will not work. I think Peridot truely believed that her beloved Yellow Diamond would understand her and stop the cluster. And she clearly does understand that there is some value in organic life and the Earth (it could be great!), if only on a resource level. So when YD dismiss her with out a second glance and with an irrational argument, she does something rash that she regrets immediatly.

      I actually think Peridot remains very much in character this episode. If YD had said “Sure, lets stop the cluster and colonize Earth, and maybe look at your plans for exploiting organic life” then Peridot would have ditched Steven in a heartbeat.

    • Sufan on January 7, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    Yellow Pearl is Hilarious! Dis is da Yellow Diahmond control room!” “Who authorized you to make this Cahll?” “WELL!” She sounds like a commander from he Jetsons. I bet she has no authority to talk to Peridot that way and she’s just pretending to be a dispatcher of some kind to feel important. XD She just wanted to be included! XD She’s like that one pet that interrupts your video chats. And Yes I am making fun of her accent. I love it.

      • Jon P on January 8, 2016 at 7:52 am

      The communication crystal was next to the Elite Throne on the moon base, so presumably only bigwigs were allowed to have direct access to the Diamonds. I think it’d be like some random schmo having the number to call the Oval Office; the President’s secretary would rightfully ask “Who the heck are you?”
      I guess that also explains the remote detonate feature, so that if the device fell into the wrong hands, it could be destroyed.

      I loved Yellow Pearl, though, especially the wordless Grinch grin she made at one point.

        • SUfan on January 8, 2016 at 10:23 pm

        I doubt a Pearl like Yellow Pearl was granted a position as important as basically being her secretary, that it would be cool if she was. But it would be funnier if she jus noticed the call while Yellow Diamond didn’t it and just answered it out of sheer curiosity and acted more important than she actually was. But who knows maybe she kinda is.
