With Steven seeming to have the same powers Rose Quartz did, and just as strongly, as well as additional powers she never even accessed, is he an even more powerful gem than his mother was? Yes, Rose said she wanted to bridge the gap between gems and humans in a way no one else had before, but was she also doing her part to save her friends and continue to save the Earth from Homeworld?

What does this mean about his ultimate destiny, and how the show might come to a close?
