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!

  • 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?

  • Bruh Steven's new power is just a pink super sayian or Super Steven hehe

  • 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.

  • We should call them Royal Pearl

  • 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

  • I got a name for the fusion:Hot Pink pearl And I mean Hot as in color NOT as in sexiness

  • I already said this before in another video but... I might be in the minority here but honestly, I'm so happy Steven finally got this mad at them about this. Over the course of the series, everyone had their problems with Pink and they always ran away in a tantrum. And it was always about Pink diamond, leaving Steven feeling partly guilty at the minimum. It was always the same friggin thing and it got annoying over the course of time. Pearl: "Why would she not tell me, I'm her b-b-b-best friend, aren't I?" runs away in anger, crying. Garnet: "S-She lied to us! Why?! Wait Sapphire Noooo!" *runs away in anger. Bismuth: "I could've saved everyone, Rose. You didn't even tell them about how YOU bubbled me away." She kept saying 'YOU' as if it was Steven's fault. And Spinel was ALSO, key word being 'also', mad at him for Pink diamond's faults, just like the others. And when Steven actually tells Spinel in the movie about how he has to constantly suffer and bear the brunt of everyone's anger for Pink's mistakes, she literally laughs in his face. Well, now Steven is throwing a badass tantrum about it and I'm glad the Pearls shit their pants freaking out. He's been through this "Oh, why did Pink, my bestie, lie to me *runs away in anger shit" long enough. He doesn't need to go through it again. I'm not saying I never understood the other's feelings about Pink. I'm just saying that Steven has HIS problems too. And I wonder if anyone even knew how Steven was feeling about himself having to deal with his mom's problems.

  • Since Steven grows new things gets uncovered just like us humans when we grow up. So It is actually a natural thing.

  • I like the show but it seems like its the same thing over and over. More of pearl realising she was wrong about rose all along and more of steven trying to prove that hes not his mom and that he wants to move on but cant.
