I'm not sure why, but I felt the need to write down my thoughts on the recent lore bombs that Steven Universe has been dropping lately, specifically around Steven's mother Rose. Of course this VERY spoiler heavy so be advised.
Now it's no secret that Rose Quartz was a fighter, I mean lets face it you don't start a rebellion without fighting. Even with that said though for a long while(pretty much since the series started) we've been told that she never went so far as to literally kill any gems. This was even backed in the episode "Bismuth" when Rose purposely hid away one of here closest allies due to differing opinions on how to deal with the war. However in recent episodes, primarily "Back to the moon" we discover that Rose in the end took Bismuth's route and shattered the Pink Diamond. The "overseer" of the Earth colony.
This is a very interesting development, personally because when I watch "Bismuth" I had an itching feeling Rose had other skeletons in closet, but at the same time you shouldn't be surprised considering the fact that during a war there is no such thing as being morally superior. From what I could tell it's pretty clear to me that Rose was suffering heavy losses at that particular time in the war. She would've had to do something she would consider immoral in order to change the tide. That's my perspective at least, I would like to hear your views on this topic.
