Could Steven Succumb to the Darkside? | Steven Universe Future: Premiere Breakdown (Episodes 1-4)

Steven Universe Future is finally here, bringing with it new gem fusions, new powers, new friends, and new issues to tackle. When we last saw Steven, he’d just come to the self-realization that happily ever after isn’t always permanent, and that he’s going to have to rise to the challenge of facing new problems every day. That, however, proves a lot easier said than done, as we follow Steven on his next adventures. I’m Whitney Van Laningham, and today, we’re breaking down the Steven Universe Future premiere!

  • guys i think amethyst saying its not the placement it’s the frame is a metaphor for it not being where he puts rose in his life it’s how he thinks about her or frames the memory of her

  • Uh... Happily Ever After is a more recent spin on fairy tales. Fun fact? Most fairy tales had much much darker endings. Happily Ever After implies "nothing new or challenging (good or bad) EVER HAPPENED ATER THAT MOMENT!" it's basically saying the characters are done growing and changing. Which isn't true. So while I still love fairy tales? I think it's a mistake to base your entire life off one. However one thing fairtales have taught me? Don't give up, just be you. Lifes too short to be anyone else.

  • i don't htink that's his power.... it's more like...... sure new power but, the steven we once knew was gone and now, he's maturing. And probably, one thing pink diamond have like any of us when we were teenager.... anger and frustration easy way out. So....... yeah. I wish we even get to learn the origin of these gems. Who was the first?

  • I think the idea is less that the "pink Steven" powers are a dark side, and more of an unknown, untapped side of Steven's nature, just like those more destructive powers are part of a largely unseen and unknown side of Pink Diamond. Most of the cast until now has only known her AFTER she started to change, to try and become more controlled, more secretive, more afraid of sharing herself with others. They only knew "Rose, the healer", the empathetic, loving and seemingly level-headed side of her, while through Pink Pearl/Volleyball, we're finally getting a deeper look into who Pink Diamond was before. Her at her most volatile, her most childish, selfish and tantrum-throwing. Similarly, Steven has always tried to push his own emotions to the side in favor of helping others, whom he always sees as the priority. He'll ignore his own issues because they get in the way of helping OTHER people with issues to solve. This is extremely unhealthy, and bottled-up emotions will inevitably come to the surface eventually, often in the most harmful way possible due to all the piling up and neglect. We've caught a mere glimpse of it when Pink Steven shouted "She's gone" at White in the previous series' finale, of all the rage, frustration and ressentment he had under the surface. This series could easily be largely about him finally acknowledging the nastier, more visceral side of those unsolved issues, and addressing them properly. If he keeps ignoring them, they'll keep coming up like this, explosive and dangerous, in screams of mass destruction, in outbursts of untamed power that take a while to "come down" from. Jasper, as... unqualified as she usually might be for any kind of emotional guidance, could at least help him acknowledge that IT'S OKAY to have these feelings and to externalize them in some way. Maybe together they could find a safe and healthly outlet for their aggressive feelings. We'll see, I guess.

  • This story so far is about Steven going through puberty and partly about his inability to compartmentalize. Puberty makes emotions complicated, he doesn't know how/unable to process them rationally so he lashes out. The way he's dealing with his feelings (by not...really dealing with them) is pretty realistic. Steven also craves order and control of his life after all he's been through, hopefully this helps him understand the Diamonds and their initial empire. A therapist would maybe ask Steven to critically think about his mother, and reassure him that sometimes you don't have to love family and you don't owe your parents for your existence. He needs to think about her in order to work through his feelings on her. Then he should focus on the fact that there are people who he can't help and there are things that he can't change/fix. Sure, he dismantled an empire, but he's not almighty, nor should he try to be.

  • Jasper's mark on the story is going to be showing Steven how he needs to be able to let out his emotions right before he snaps, it's kind of upsetting how I know how Rebecca writes this well
