    I'm just going back and I rewatched this. I noticed something I hadn't before; Sun and Coco were sitting next to each other. Wouldn't they make great yet terrifying friends. My only reaction out of all of this is those two should be friends, that would be awesome.

    I was trying to figure out the big deal behind Penny vs Pyrrah, since it seemed it only meant an easier victory for Pyrrah. But after seeing how she destroyed Penny it made sense, especially coupled with Yang's incident. When Cinder began talking, my opinion definitely changed about her. All the writers behind RWBY are doing a good job telling this story. At first I thought Cinder was just in it for a power gain but it's more than that. She's undermining the trust people have in their governments and guardians, casting them in a different light. A couple of the songs for these last two seasons have been hinting strongly at this, as well. Not everything's right in Remnant.


    Hard to say who I felt worse for, Pyrrah or Ruby, when they were looking at Penny. That was also the first time Pyrrah actually flexed her aura too. Incredible how devastating it actually is.


    But hearing Ozpin talk to Ironwood like that... It was the first time he sounded menacing. Like he didn't know which needed a proper slap more, the Grim or the general.

    It was pointed out that at 8:44 you can see a boar Faunus girl smiling while everyone else is panicking. Possible Boarbatusk in disguise? Anyway, Mojo made fanart of her, and since female boar don't grow prominent tusks, she may be trans.

    Yep, more style over substance. Ruby could have went back the way she came. And it's stupid that Mercury was able to stop her super speed with no explanation or merit. AND why does every character Yuri Lowenthal play have the fucking duck butt hairstyle? God I hate that guy. Same voice, same character every damn time. He has no range. UH hello?! She's a robot. She can obviously be repaired so it's no real reason to be sad.

    As much as I love Ruby, I'm beginning to think pep talks before fights aren't her thing. Telling Yang to break legs, Pyhhra clearly won that for Beacon right? It's rather unfortunate honestly, for someone so well meaning she says some rough things from time to time.

      Wait a minute, so people had evidence that Neo displayed similar powers. They had NO evidence that Emerald had any such powers. People are "fools" for following evidence and creating a hypothesis based off of it? I believe that is called science.

    When Penny was cut in piece's, her eyes were still open and seeing, then she shut down with

    eyes still open. Much in the way the Major was still alive when her head was severed in Ghost

    in a Shell. She was saved and her head put on another body. So I would think Penny will come

    back, but not as Penny. Easy to have a face lift.


    Back when Emerald and Mercury were fighting Coco and ... she used a type of chain on Coco to

    pull her into the forest. I would think it was Emerald who did the cutting up of Penny. Prryha looked to stunned there, and she had never used something like that in her fighting.


    Anyone ever wonder about the tablet Ospin uses? He sees pretty much everything that is going

    on. Even when they are in the forest finding their partners, and teams, he sees what is going on.


    Summer Rose is Ruby's mother, and the only mother that Yang has ever known. Yang even says so when talking to Blake before the dance. Probably why Qrow said she was crazy.

    He knows who her Mom is.

    • DLeeXIII FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      Were you watching the same show as everyone else? Emerald didnt cut up

      Penny, Prryha clearly did it although unintentionally.


      Ozpin uses the same tablet that the Atlas soldiers are using in the forest right before

      the grimm attack in this episode.The reason he could see into the forest when the students were finding their partners is because it was an exercise he designed therefore he probably had surveillance present there.

      And of course Qrow knows who Yang's mother is, its his sister Raven.If she does return in this or another volume it probably wont be as a good guy supported by Qrow's description of his sister as "dangerous".

    • nicus9 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      @Oleone69 It is possible but just because someone's eyes are open, that doesn't mean anything. Look at just about any tv show or movie where a character dies, someone who is nearby will often close their eyes for them. Same with machines. If you're Xbox or Playstation explodes and the disc drive flies across the room and it is open, that doesn't mean it can be saved. It just means it lost power and didn't close lol. I do think Penny will come back in the future, but her eyes don't mean anything.


      Go back and watch any fight with Penny (the end of Volume 1, the fight with team CRDL, this episode etc.). At certain points when she uses her swords you can see the strings that connects the swords to her (they are the shiny strings that are floating mid air). Those are what cut Penny in half. Pyrrha repelled Penny's swords using her magnetism semblance and when the swords were thrown backward towards Penny, the strings wrapped around her and sliced through her body. Pyrrha did it accidentally. Emerald used her semblance to make Pyrrha hallucinate and see more swords then there actually were and overreact.

      What DLeeXIII said. The forest they were in when Ozpin was watching them was a testing ground. The entire point of that was so teachers could observe students and judge their skills, so Ozpin's tablet is just accessing the cameras they set up in the forest/testing ground. There isn't anything special about it.


      And everyone knows who Yang's mom is (Raven). Ruby, Yang, Qrow, etc., they all know. It isn't a secret. Qrow and Raven are brother and sister. Raven just ran off when Yang was little, and she was raised by Summer, but she still knows that Raven is her mom. Yang recognized her mom on the train and in the picture Qrow showed her.


      Qrow said Yang was crazy because Yang swears that Mercury attacked her, but NO ONE else saw it (because of Emerald's power).

    I have to say that penny's demise was saddening. Ruby crying even sadder. But when all the teams (SSSN JNPR RWBY and hell even team CRDL and my best bet: CFVY beat the crap out of Cinder and her lacked I'll be laughing my butt off!


    As for Mercury I hope he's the first to pay. And I hope Torchwick brings on the more comical side of RWBYs villains. This story has gotten dark and hopefully will brighten.


    As for the Grimm I hope this more epic than last seasons finale which left me expecting more.

    Anybody else want to see Ember Cinder die at the hands of Amber in the same way that Lust was killed by Col. Mustang in Fullmetal? It would be extremely ironic and very meta if you knew Laura Bailey voiced Amber and Lust. I'm not sure if Jessica Nigri can pull off a pained, bloodcurdling scream like Laura Bailey but I do want to see Cinder's flesh fall right of; although I'm sad it'll only happen once because she doesn't have a Philosopher's Stone.

    This episode was amazing... getting a real "Battle of Hogwarts" feel from it.

    I really hope the grimm attack is a distraction so Cinder can go finish Amber (the Fall Maiden) off, maybe thats why Ozpin stayed behind to fight off Cinder? I also really want Blake to see Adam, im sure they will both have some sort of reaction to each other. Alot of people are saying that they can just rebuild Penny, i hope she did something cheeky like downloading herself into Beacons system thats how she planned to stay at Beacon like she told Ruby she wanted to.

      Now that you mention it, I can see a sort of "Courtyard Apocalypse" happening next episode. Wouldn't that be something?


      Picture: What few students there are at the school, Yang among them, trying to fight off the Grimm (probably augmented or controlled by Cinder in some way) the White Fang brought with them in Beacon's main courtyard. A couple students are dead or injured, including a few team members from ABRN, FNKI, NDGO and/or BRNZ, but they're managing to hold their own fairly well. Eventually, Weiss and Blake find their way from the fairgrounds and join in the defense. And that's when Blake sees Adam...


      While all this is happening, Cinder sneaks around and heads toward the school's vault, where Amber is being kept. When she emerges from the elevator, there's only one person standing in her way. Ozpin. And he's not happy.


      Guhhh, I can't wait for Sunday!
