    Who rewatches the Teacher's scene? 11:10

    Winter: "He was drunk!" 

    Glynda: "He's always drunk!" 

    Qrow: drinking

     LOL

    And that Swag look Qrow, Glynda, and Ozpin gives at the elevator. Priceless! XD

    Oh man, there is so much more to catch when you watch this episode after you've seen the rest of Season 3. 


    Most notably, I am pretty sure that Qrow's semblance gives him the ability to see through the eyes of crows, not to transform into a crow. There is a crow watching his fight with Winter, and when it takes off from a post and circles around the area Qrow's balance (or at least the way he held his head) changed and his eyes no longer looked directly at Winter. The comment she made about "I'm standing right in front of you" held a double meaning, though I can't tell if Winter intended it. She overtly meant that he was talking about her like she wasn't there, but once she said that he reoriented himself and his eyes looked at her straight on once again. 


    It's possible that this was all just him being drunk, but considering most of the times we see a crow it is in the city, it seems weird for a grown man who is a resident of Vale to run around in the city transformed as a crow.


    Also, how the **** is he supposed to drink from his flask while in bird form? I think he'd avoid the transformation unless absolutely necessarily for that reason alone. 


    One of the other things is "the things she makes ARE fear." The context suggests he was referring to Salem. I.e. Salem makes Grimm - though that does not necessarily mean she is the original source of all Grimm. But Season 4's first several episodes certainly fit with the idea that she can personally create or cause Grimm to come into existence.

    From the way they kept talking about him, I assumed Qrow was an older guy. But he's pretty young. That fight with Winter was dope but the whole time I kept thinking, Oh, Glyndal is gonna be ticked when she sees all the damage they did.


    Qrow's wink was just good trolling. Hehe.


    Also, love the bits of maturity showing through in the writing. When Ironwood talks about how his fleet makes people feel safe and Ozpin points out that such a show of force makes people wonder just what on earth could be threatening them to require so much. Real world application. I look at countries showing off their guns (literally) and I don't feel safer. I said once, 'Power by might is power that begs for use.' In many ways it's a challenge, it doesn't mean righteousness or good, it simply says, Come at me. And that invites trouble. Glad to see that foreboding theme in RWBY. I digress...


    Great episode.


    Edit: Only a few days later did I remember that last quote from Qrow was Monty Oum's favorite saying. :( Rest in Peace

    And, I know I've said it before, but WHYYYYY couldn't they have made Qrow their Dad's brother? It makes me sad that Qrow and Ruby aren't really related. :'(

      Its Summer Rose assuming the picture you are referring to is the one in the opening credits. The 4 people in the picture are the 4 members of Team STRQ (Summer Rose, Taiyang Xiao Long, Raven Branwen, and Qrow Branwen.)


      Also ya, it's kind of weird how Qrow and Ruby are way more similar than Qrow and Yang, but he not related to Ruby by blood.

      Well Qrow is her uncle and helped train her- a lot seemingly. So I can see why she takes after him. Most of us guess Yang takes after Tai. I think them not being blood related (Ruby and Qrow) is fine. It seems they are all pretty close and tight knit despite the moms being M.I.A.

    Ok so I think one thing we can all conclude is crow's "a bit of a badass", I mean look, he was obviously joking around with winter, playing if you will, I'm sure if he actually tried, Winter wouldn't have stood a chance.

    Also if someone could clear this up for me, at the beginning of season 1 when Ruby meets Ozpin he says " there's just one other scythe wielder if seen like that" , Ruby confirms that it was crow who thought her but in the fight scene it really doesn't look like a scythe in his hands

    • Maple6029 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Because it's not in scythe form... You can see near the end of the Qrow and Winter fight that it was about to transform into a scythe. But then Ironwood came.

    Anyone else notice a chess piece pop up on ironwoods scroll for a moment, which also popped up on cinders scroll. then when shes looking around, ironwoods picture is in the top corner. This builds on my impression of ironwood from the end of season 2- ironwood is not the ally he appears to be.

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

      It's More likely to be the new access point she is talking about. The "Queen Virus" was loaded into Beacon academy CCT; so, it would stand to reason that Beacon is compromised. When Ironwood put his scroll on Ozpin's desk, the Virus transferred into the scroll, and notified Cinder that Ironwwod's scroll is a new access point (why his picture is there). Later Episode 5, we see Cinder accessing data that only Ironwood or those close to him would have access to. So, If Ironwood was corrupt, she wouldn't have to steal the data, and she would already have it. And if Ironwood's Scroll was the source of the Virus, she would have been able to steal the data sooner. If anything this scene proves Ironwood's inocence and Ozpin's obliviousness to the "Queen Virus" and its far reaching effects.

    Ironwood is a paranoid man. He would be terrible at Poker because subtlety and discretion are not among his qualities. He's not as good as his colleagues at handling dangerous knowledge. He lets his fear show and it bleeds into his decisions.

    The general believes overwhelming power is the answer to everything, but the people are blissfully ignorant. They already felt safe until he made them believe there was something to be afraid of. Tension and anxiety are filling the air, especially after the Grimm attack. These are stepping stones to negative emotions and the Grimm can sense it.

    Ironwood believes what he's doing is right, but his fear makes him easy to manipulate. Who knows what poison Torchwick is feeding him during their interrogations? Now that Cinder has access to his scroll, she can undermine him even further.

    As stated before, he believes military numbers and power can protect the people from whatever threatens them, but the narrator of the first episode said it clearly: "There will be no victory in strength."

      True but as seen at the end of the volume the Ozpin's own plans played into Cinder's hands as well. In short, both sides were right and both sides were wrong.

    Awesome episode. I like how things seem to be getting heavier over the course of RWBY. But I am a little bummed by seeing cursing introduced. Don't get me wrong. It's not like PG or PG13 language is enough to make me not like a show. But it is a little bit of a bummer. The show is awesome and has shined this whole time on it's own merits, all without cursing. So it feels like a step backwards.

    Which is more impressive? Someone who can run a mile? Or someone who can run a mile while carrying an anvil?

    • BrandonSmit8

      To be fair not everyone has cursed it's Qrow the drunk. It's part of his character, it has not set up a presetent of cursing rather just an establishment of how Qrow acts and behaves, which was already established when he was wobbling down the street and when he spent the first few episodes drinking until Winter arrived.
