I think it's an unintended consequence of the inanimate objects and materials coming in contact with the Diamond juice. The only living inanimate objects we saw were around the extraction chambers and just touching that stuff brings things to life whether they want it to or not. So the hallway, statues, and combs just got brought to life due to getting wet. Blue seemed a little annoyed by the singing comb.
Connie will start referring to Steven as Steven-dono and Pearl as Pearl-senseiI wonder why these season 6 in production episodes are considered apart of season 5
When the cluster arc was split between season 2 and 3
This episode also had Steven talk about his future growth, i think that is foreshadowing
I think season 6 proper will be a shippuden or dbz type thing
All the humans will grow older and get new designs
Rebecca sugar also said something ominus ab9ut how the harsest thing she has ever done happens in these episodes
Please everybody knows that Rebecca Sugar is completely evil...so it will be worse
Garnet did say "Steven will be fine". So you know...
No one will be shattered just pink pearl 2.0
Considering how Rebecca teased her doing the harshest thing yet I'm guessing it could be rather soon.
We've seen gem shattering in stylized flashbacks, but it's true we haven't seen it in the modern era (and Steven has never seen it happen). Given there's only a few gems we've seen honestly, but I do feel we may see someone shattered soon. I have a sneaking suspicion this arc is going to be full of more pleasant and crueler stuff all throughout, the Diamonds are being familiar with Steven and have 'human' sides to them, but the Diamonds are dictators and have done a ton of terrible shit to countless worlds, kills probably hundreds of thousands of living things in the process, and the such for their own self gain. I would not be surprised to see a Diamond shatter a gem for good to demonstrate just how monstrous they are in their dictatorship, as shattering gems that get in their way is definitely not out of their comfort zone (hell, they're even game for Gem body horror experimentation, let us not forget. They have done various monstrous things, and just because they think Pink is back, I doubt they're going to turn over a new leaf anytime soon and I bet the question/conflict if they're even redeemable is going to come up).
After tonight's episode, I am ever more confident in my theory.
Spoiler's about tonight's episode in the tag.
Seriously, Pearl IS White Diamond. Isn’t it sinking in? Why would pearl on white's thrown feel upset if she didn’t feel tied to the post? We will see what happens, but as of right now, I am even more confident.
Of course they are, and have been for a while... minus SPOILER
