RWBY: Volume 4, Chapter 11: Taking Control

It's been several months since the Fall of Beacon, and the world of Remnant is still recovering. Tensions are high, lives have been lost, and the members of Team RWBY... are divided. Each of our heroines now faces a journey of their own. While some must search inward if they ever hope to move on, others will venture out into the world in search of answers. Alongside the remaining members of Team JNPR, Ruby Rose has begun the long trek to the kingdom of Mistral, but the road ahead is full of surprises. New friends and enemies await, while the threat of an even larger catastrophe draws near.

    Rematching the series and it's gotten me thinking. If I'm right (feel free to correct me if necessary), at the end of the season Ruby, Nora, Jaune and Ren are at Haven with Qrow. Oscar meets him in the bar and joins the fray. Yang is on her way to Haven to meet up with Ruby. Weiss is leaving Atlas to go to Mistral, I think, so she's going to meet up with them there. And Blake and Sun will end up going there too to stop Adam from taking it down with the White Fang - and I think Sun's team are there cause they go to school there too. So season 5 is going to be based at Haven stopping Watts and Lionheart allowing Adam and so forth from repeating the Fall of Beacon in Haven. 


    Right??

    This entire season, Yang's hair has looked darker than it normally is. It's got like an orange tone to it. It seems to be only when it's up in a ponytail, though, because when she has it down and is riding off on the motorcycle, it's back to the bright yellow color it was in the last three seasons.

    For those who recognized creepy instrumental to Lusus Naturae at the end of this episode, I just wanted to also point out, in case you missed it, it is also in episode 1 of this volume, as the beowulf's are climbing out of the pool, starting about 0:32 into the episode. Also, I hope they come out with the full version to it, because I love how it sounds.

    you know in the first volume it seemed as if Nora was just always irritating ren, haha. (Please forgive me if my observation in the first volume offended anyone.) I'm thrilled to know how they actually meet and the bond they both hold. I was at work on my break watching this and I'am not going to lie ... I shead a tear or two... Or three, whatever.

  • Kerisato

    I'm going out on a limb here but I foresee Cinder betraying Salem. It's pretty obvious that she is having serious doubts about her place on Salem's Council. And as the madman (Tyrian) just demonstrated: Being fanatically loyal does not garner her favor. Salem views everyone as sub-whatever she is. The question I have (if that's what happens) is: What will happen to the Fall Maiden? See, unlike before there is now a chance for the Fall Maiden's power to go to Ruby, since Cinder well-acquainted with Ruby, even if she loathes her. Of course there's Emerald, too (I am kind of hoping it will be her who is next in line if Cinder does end up trying to leave and Salem kills her. Mostly because I don't want to see the writers at Roosterteeth turn any of the RWBY four into some kind of OP stupid-mess).


    It seems, once again, that General Ironwood is being setup as something of a potential bad guy. I know Juacques is a git, but that doesn't mean the solution is any better, and it sounds like Ironwood thinks the world needs to be under his banner to be safe. Even if he has justifiable fears, the saying goes: 'The road to hell is paved with good intentions.' But at least Weiss is going to escape (shame we didn't get a brief cameo with Team FUNK helping her in some way. At least not yet *dun dun dun*)

    I don't think Hazel is actually going to help Adam overthrow Khan (White Fang Leader). I think Salem wanted him to ensure Khan remained loyal, but if that failed then the plan is to get 'encourage him by the threat of Adam, thus Adam take the fall and Salem's pawns will remain hidden. I mean to say it may be that Hazel will use the coup attempt to ensure Khan completely abides Salem's whim. If Adam is killed because Hazel exposes him it would make the White Fang feel indebted, thereby creating more willing fighters for Salem's cause. And it would almost make them less inclined than ever to help any outsiders.


    That Grim is definitely one of the more creative ones to come out of this show. Head of a demon, head of a horse, body of a centuar, with long, hideous arms, and griffon front feet. Nuckelavee (Yeah, I was way off in my last post) might be the coolest one yet. Can't wait to see this fight.


    On a somewhat unrelated note: There's an annoying ad that plays over and over on Roosterteeth's video player whenever I try to watch an episode. Anyone else getting it. I have to go to youtube to watch because, strangely, the video just loops.

    Anyone else getting bad premonitions about Ironwood. We know he's a good guy with good intentions who just screws up a lot. That said his character has gotten decidedly more self assured that he's the only one who can fix the crisis. We know from chapter 2 that Ironwood invoked a dust embargo with the other nations meant to prevent international hostilities from escalating but at the same time this weakens the other nations to troubled times. Now we learn that Ironwood is locking off Atlas and moving troops into Minstral. While these all have their reasonings Ironwood is doing a terrible job at showing the other nations that Atlas is on their side. There was also just a bad vibe coming off of Ironwood when Joch, yes I know he's a dusch but he's not evil par say, mentions that Ironwood is making all the calls not the council as a whole. This brings me to my theory for the future. Ironwood will start another Great War. We've heard the idea teased a couple times and it doesn't seem like they would do it without a purpose. Ironwood is head of the strongest military force in remnant and we now know that he doesn't trust anyone to protect themselves. On the other hand Ironwood is self righteous and arrogant, he's sure that what he's doing is right. Say if mistral goes the way of beacon. Ironwood might decide that the separations of nations has made humanity weak and incapable of fending off Salem's forces divided. Ironwood being a man of order would likely propose a unificationof force she under one banner.When the other nations say no because of freedom and independence. Ironwood might decide that he must unify the nations through conquest in Order to fight Salem the only way he knows how. This another Great War Atlas vs Vale, Vacuole, Andy Minstral. With Atlas's superior technology tech, army, and dust supplies it would be at least an even fight even 3v1. This is just a thought I had after watching this episode. Likely this won't occur but This just seems to me as the most likely way War could break out and seeing as it's been teased so  much couldn't help thinking about it.

    I might be imagining things, but that song that played during the credits and when the Nuckelavee bugger arrived...  Doesn't it sound like an instrumental of (the beginning of) Lusus Naturae from Grimm Eclipse?

    I don't know if there's a deeper connection implied there or not, but either way it's a fittingly terrifying track.

    I personally think we might see a change in Cinder that could result in a switching of sides. The way I always see this type of restraint happen is that the character is 100% devout to their cause, then, a traumatic event with a greater power and a realization of something (could be anything) occurs and makes the character think deeply about certain things. In this case, Cinder got the rest of the fall maiden power, she gets badly maimed by Ruby's silver eyed rage, she finds out about a crippling weakness that accompanies the power she now holds, and now Salem is becoming displeased with her efforts.

    • Emerald17

      user-5608760d2ef27, I don't think Cinder summoned the Grim. It most likely appeared because it was attracted to Tyrian's negative emotions.

    Hope people don't get mad when I say this, but to each their own. Everyone is allowed to feel as they wish about this volume. I'm seeing a lot of people who aren't enjoying V4 very much and saying it doesn't live up to V3. In my honest opinion I am absolutely loving V4, because I view it as the start of a new season where as I don't think others are. Volumes 1-3 was one total story arc, putting all 3 of those together make it ONE full season. Now starting V4 is the beginning of the newest story arc aka the beginning of another one full season. So of course V4 the start of a season 2 isn't going to be as action heavy and bad guys vs the gang in a huge battle because we already had that big end. Now it was time to move on to the after math of all of that and start into the new threats ahead. Look at it like this V1 was very story and plot driven with a slower start to introduce characters and start to form the big plot. Then V2 progressed that and picked up the action to continue. Finally V3 was the big bang and total season finale. So V4 is just the start of all the chaos that I am sure is to come. Next volume will progress more and action will continue to grow and develop with the plot. So it's possible that maybe up to V6 will be a close to this story arc and form all together as a full season 2. Overall everyone has a right to enjoy or not enjoy the new volume, but that is how I am viewing it. Personally I highly enjoyed V4 and can't wait for the finale and V5.

    TLDR; Volumes 1-3 come together to fulfill one story arc and together create a season ONE. V4 can be viewed as the START of an overall season TWO and new story arc so of course it's not gonna be as action packed as V3 was. BUT to each their own and everyone has every right to like or dislike something. Not trying to cause trouble just throwing in my two cents. Hope you all have a wonderful day. <3  blake

      I was hyped from the character short with Ruby, but the flow of action in the early episodes of the volume felt really off and awkward by comparison.I continued to watch since I enjoy the story, but it wasn't really until the fight where Tyrian first showed up and fought RNJR (and later, Qrow), that I felt like the action sequences had good flow in this volume.  That being said, I think it was mainly growing pains in switching to Maya from Poser, so I'm thinking we'll start seeing animation improvements as time goes on.  

      As for story - you're right, we just had a climactic volume and now we're in the next story arc, which needs to have time to build to it's climax.

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

      8 months ago

      I personally like this volume so far. We need some down time to recover from Volume 3 otherwise the high action would get boring. However I think the volume trying to make deleloent for 6 different parties without adding more time to the length of the episodes is a weakness and the main reason people are complaining (whether they know it or not). Either way, they are doing a good job with what they go. 

    • Crimsonrosehuntsman CrimsonRose

      8 months ago

      Couldn't agree more. I personally think that you have to appreciate the story more in order to fully enjoy the episodes. I mean V4 so far is, "RNJR has been on the road toward Mistral for a few months and now there is a deepening in the plot. Ruby is now a target because of her gift, we are seeing the past and how it is influencing aspects of certain characters, predominantly Ren in the present episodes. In V1-3 it was focused on team RWBY, and loosely at that. We found out more about Yang and Ruby in those volumes than any other characters. Now we see what behind the scenes characters were pulling the strings that Cinder seemed so in control of as well as learn that there is more backstory to every character than we first believed. What's more, we are learning about Ozpin too, the very reason that Ruby became the focus of most of V1-3. This is like a lengthy novel vs a set of short stories. An epic vs fairytales if you will.


      Even with all the talking and reduced action, I still find myself wanting to see more. Will Weiss make it to Mistral? How does Blake plan on taking back the white fang? Will she become its new leader? (Already assuming this result) What will Yang do when she finds Ruby? Will Qrow stay poisoned? I think I've made my point.

    • user-5608760d2ef27

      8 months ago

      Exactly.  I think they wanted to minimize the action while they got used to Maya (from poser), so that when they did start doing epic battles again, they would look amazing.

    something horrifying to remember, Grimm spawn in numbers, so even if RNJR kill the nuckelavee, there will still be hundreds still waiting for the moment to spawn and attack.

      I think that depending on the type of Grimm it takes longer for it to spawn. In V4Ch1 we see the Beowolves spawning, and we all know that type of Grimm are a dime a dozen. The more common Grimm are faster spawning (Ursa, B-wolves, Boarbatusks, Creeps) with others being more rare, slower spawning, and as such are more dangerous- leading to them getting older and therefore even more deadly.
