Steven Universe: Wanted Promo Analysis

Hi this is Weird here and I decided to write an analysis of the Steven Universe promo Wanted I known that others have done similar but I thought I would give you my view on what I saw and maybe I can make you see my way to. I won’t be covering the scenes from Stuck Together as the episode has already debut, but that’s enough of an introduction let’s dive in shall we.

Lars is sweating bullets as he’s scanned by the roaming eye but nothing happens to him only Steven, who’s gem glows. The few scene’s I saw with the same background had Lars destroy it as it was attacking Steven for what I can only assume is trespassing. For once in his life Lars seems to be digging deep into his emotional bag pulling up on courage that has been buried by cowardice and fear. Though I don’t know how long this wave of courage will last. For in the next few scenes we see Steven and Lars steal Blue Diamonds palanquin and I know how frightful the diamonds can be once you have enraged them.

I have been waiting for so long to see the Diamonds in action and finally we will get the chance to witness there power or at least Yellow Diamonds powers as she is clearly being shown using it or at least directing those electrical currents that are moving across her body. By her expression she clearly knows what she’s doing and not in pain at all as her eyes give away that she’s focused and in control.

The kindergarten that was shown being blown up has all perfect holes from which various gems have emerged from. From the episode kindergarten kid we know these are jasper quality holes, perfect in every way creating gems that are flawless. The way they are shaped and by how large they are I believe these are where most of the Rose Quartz have emerged from and possibly a few smaller gems as the holes aren’t large enough. Why is this important. If you remember correctly in the episode Gem Heist. The room where Blue Diamond is kneeling the ceiling is covered in Rose Quartz gems that have been bubbled. During this scene I couldn’t help but wonder why they still kept the soldiers around and didn’t shatter them? Even Yellow Diamond asks this but now I have an idea about why she kept them. Either it’s because of sentimentality that Blue Diamond has for her sister Pink Diamond previously shown off by collecting more humans for the zoo or a far darker reason. From the direct lyrics Yellow Diamonds song in Gem Heist these Rose Quartz’s rebelled against Home World so the only logical reason of why Blue Diamond kept them, was that Home World might meet an enemy so big they cannot defeat them with their current resources and would need extra help. After all the Sapphire’s of Blue Diamonds court are nearly 100% accurate in their depictions of the future and after all if you want to know why you start a war a Sapphire will know.

Due to the lack of information I do not know if they are on a space station or on Home World, but from the aesthetics my eyes are leading me to a space station because of the similarities between the station on which the zoo was located on. Home World is all about efficiently so they would keep the same design and not keep creating new designs unless for a technical purposes as Yellow Diamond is far to logical to change outward Designs for the sake of changing them. Though the inward design with all the cheeses graters is strange, what could be the reasoning of that design.

As we move further into the building we see Steven is sitting in a indent in White Diamonds shape. As we know this part moves. I can write with certainty that this will turn into a podium for him to stand on so he can reach the Diamonds eye sights so they don’t have to look down at him as they cast judgment but straight into his eyes.

With the way Blue Diamond is scrutinising Steven it reminds me of a cop grilling a suspect they just know is guilty of whatever crime they are accusing them off. I can practically hear the cogs turning in Blue Diamonds mind as she observes Steven, as though she’s trying to push the truth out of him with her eyes. By all appearances Blue Diamond was the most physically affected by the death of Pink Diamond. Going into a deep depression that Yellow Diamond tried to pull her out of but the only thing that possibly could was capturing Rose Quartz and exacting justice and as we know from the recently released synopsis for this episode is, “Steven goes to court with the Diamonds and is put on trial.” So my initial thoughts were correct but I do wonder if this trial will be an actual trial or a fast with the outcome already decided.

I speculated with myself that this gem was a historian because of her monocle and her general design, but after reviewing the footage it’s clear to me that she is a lawyer as her nervous or possibly frightful expression that she’s wearing can be explained by defending Home Worlds most notorious criminal Rose Quartz. A high profile case such as that would have the most hardened lawyers shaking in there bell bottoms as she is about face off with the diamonds who with a single word can have her shattered.

There has been much discussion about what this gem could be but after strenuous analysis I have come to the conclusion that this is Moonstone gem. The monocle she wears is a calling card to the moon with it’s shape but it might just have something to do with the fetish that Home World has for eye wear. Her Mohawk is very reminiscent of a crescent moon. Finally the bell bottoms which was a fashion staple around the 1960s to the 1970s and it was 1969 when the moon landing took place. Her colour which is a blue that when the floor lights it turns her coloring to an almost white sheen and it has been described by the Gem Society that, ‘Moonstones are prized for their adularescence, an optical phenomenon that creates the appearance of billowy clouds of blue to white light with a moonlight sheen.’

This gem is giving me a very deep impression that she is in fact a Moonstone and is doing very little to turn me from that direction of thinking.

Along with this new promo it has been discussed that Steven and Lars will fuse and who will be the voice as either Jeremy Shada or Adam McArthur and I honestly hope the voice is Adam McArthur.

Marco talks with a nasally tone which he and Lars share as well as both characters prone to momentary freak outs. Accompanied by brief moments of maturity with fixing problems with adult solutions which is what Steven is known for, I don’t know if it’s going to Adam McArthur or Jeremy Shada the voice of Finn the Human and no offence to him but his voice would feel strange coming out of the Selar (The Steven and Lars fusion).

Well those are just my jumbled thoughts on the Steven Universe promo if you, have your own thoughts on this please write them into the comments below. Please like and subscribe because that always makes me happy.
