The limited series ‘Steven Universe Future’ is nearing the finish line. The animated sci-fi fantasy series which serves as an ultimate epilogue to its parent series, ‘Steven Universe,’ and the eponymous film, revolves around the adventures of Steven, a gem and human hybrid, who is struggling to deal with his deteriorating mental health, after realizing the fact that since there is no immediate danger looming over his Gem friends, he has no purpose left in life.
The Rebecca Sugar creation returned from a mid-season break on March 6, 2020. So far, we have seen Steven trying to evade any sort of assistance from his concerned friends despite knowing that something is very wrong with him. But thankfully, on Connie’s insistence, Steven meets with Connie’s mother Rebecca, who reveals that Steven is dealing with trauma inflicted upon him in childhood and he has to confront his fears head on, before it’s too late.
In episode 16, which released on March 20, 2020, Steven tries to understand his psyche but fails miserably. After his encounter with Jasper, fans are worried that Steven might never recover.

Steven Universe Future Finale Spoilers
After the whole Jasper incident, Steven has had enough. He is disappointed in himself and the destructive potential he possesses. In the series finale, we can expect to see Steven, giving up on himself and leaving his friends – Amethyst, Pearl and Garnet behind to move to someplace else. But where? There’s a chance he might end up going to the home world to live with the Diamonds. His friends might try to stop him but he might go regardless. Things haven’t been so great with Steven lately, and it’s about time he gets some actual help or he might end up destroying himself.
The finale might feature a series of flashbacks, showcasing all the good times Steven has spent with his friends. We aren’t too sure but it seems like even Jasper would try to persuade Steven to stay, looking at his condition. The last time I checked, Jasper and the Gem trio aren’t on the friendliest of terms but it is possible that all of them might band together to try and bring Steven home, even if Jasper doesn’t necessarily like the Crystal Gems.
