I won this avatar on a technicality this thick.

Is the show 5 seasons or 3 seasons broken up into 5 seasons?

David Sirlin is a great game designer but he's definitely been held back by his obsession with that cast of uninspiring fighting-game characters he came up with. I think I saw he was making an actual fighting game with them recently, so hopefully that gets it out of his system.

Lets not overstate it, Puzzle Strike is good but only after 3 releases did it get to a point where it wasn't super broken. I also don't get why people still play Yomi when BattleCon and Exceed exist.

I believe you'll find the true answer is "a few dozen seasons, most of which are 4-6 episodes long"

Tbh, this is a good twist, possibly the best in TV (tied with AoS' Season 1 twist for me) because it recontextualizes EVERY relationship Steven has, except maybe with Connie. I immediately want to know every major character's reaction to this! Does Greg know (he doesn't), what will Peridot say? Whst would Jasper say?

I really can't wait for the next episode, 2023 can't come soon enough!

A better question would probably be "Does Greg care?" since, you know, he only ever knew her as Rose. That she used to be someone else, had other things she had to do, and a dark past or whatever isn't really as important to a guy like him. He just cared that she was happy and that she liked him back, after all.

Unless its somehow revealed Greg was only being played by her as a means to accomplish some weird plot.

Or it is revealed Greg knew, and this was one of those few moments where he managed to keep a secret for most of his life. Sort of echoing the whole "Unit 1 is Shinji's Mom" thing from Evangelion. Except the dad isn't also a weird egotist with attachment issues.

Greg has has pretty explicitly said that he doesn't care about Rose's past, and that he knows she wanted to make amends for being an intergalactic war criminal. He may or may not know about Pink Diamond, but finding out is not going to make him think less of her.

FUSION DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY! GOODNIGHT!

But seriously though, We know from pictures that White Diamond has a forehead gem, and not a stomach or chest gems. She clearly exists independently of the other Diamonds as seen in Garnet's flashback and indicated by the fact that her light appears in the sky during the corruption bomb. She's not a fusion, she's her own thing, it's way more likely that the reason we never see her around is because she just doesn't like dealing with the other diamonds because they all suck.

Dogg I know all that. I'm sticking to my story regardless.

Greg probably considers (or will consider after finding out) Rose originally being PD to be no more important in the context of their relationship than him originally being Greg DeMayo.

Exploration is ill-advised.

Although I imagine he's going to recognise it means a hell of a lot more to people who were there at the time and Gems in general.

Hiatus hell until 'summer'.

Wasn't Pink Diamond actually smaller than Rose? About as tall, much skinnier.

STOP BEING EVIL.


A lot of the things the gems and Greg have said to Steven seem pretty in-line with Rose's actions. Greg told her it didn't matter what she did in the past, Garnet and Amethyst were cool with Rose keeping secrets, Garnet was pretty adamant that Pink Diamond couldn't be around if the rebellion was going to succeed, and they all knew about Rose's penchant for totally transforming herself into something new.

It all fits in philosophically with Rose's actions. She was honest to them about her intentions and actions and about the fact that she had secrets. It's only their hangups about the Diamonds that make this an emotionally intense thing.

The twist really doesn't change much about Rose or the overall plot, it just effects all the characters emotionally.

What the hell is AoS?

I wonder if we'll ever get a reason for Pink being smaller and newer? Why they'd make a new one and change their emblem as they did. I wonder if really old stuff (10,000 year old stuff) has a white/blue/yellow marking on it only.

Yeah, it's Agents of SHIELD.

The crest is a good question, I guess it depends on how long Pink was colony-less?
