We haven’t had a #StevenBomb yet that didn’t give us some juicy information, but #StevenBomb4 was a particularly juicy set of episodes: we got history, we got Diamonds, and we got still more looks at the Gems themselves. Here’s what we’ll be writing about soon:
It’s been five thousand years and despite huge advanced in other technology they’re still using the same communication method. There is also more evidence for just how stratified their social hierarchy is, and a fluid distinction between a Gem as an individual and a grouping of those with the same gem.
Beyond how they organize as a society we’ve learned a bit more about the Gems themselves. We’ve finally seen (and heard described) a confirmed fusion of multiple Gems of the same type, we know their purpose, and another ability they have specifically to help them serve that purpose.
The initial plan for the Earth colony was quite impressive. The Gems were going to spare no effort to efficiently make use of everything they could to make Earth suit their needs.
