Realistically speaking, if Connie didn't go to Homeworld they probably would've never come back.>No purely human element to distrupt the ball>Steven continues to wait and wait to try and get White's attention>Eventually runs out of food and wants to go back to get some>DENIED>Dead
That would've been morbid. But yes, that moment is why Connie is perfect for Steven. Forgot the bullshit argument from Dewey Wins, that's both of them in a desperately bad situation. Pic related is the real Steven and Connie.
