Episode 4

Well that was...a whole lot of nothing.

Seriously, every scene in this episode could have been smaller scenes in episodes where shit actually happens. Aside from Qrow losing his faith in Ozpin, none of what happened today felt....needed. Nothing happens. We don't learn anything. The characters don't really learn anything. It's just 13 minutes of talking and then they find an abandoned house to stay the night in. The end.

Really?
Qrow breaks faith with Ozpin
Ozpin seals himself away in shame
Emerald, Hazel, Mercury and the rest learn Cinder's alive
We get development from Hazel
Salem learns Ozpin is back
Team RWBY+QOM find a place to stay.

Yes. Really.

Pretty much all of those things are relatively small in the grand scheme of things. Especially Salem learning Ozpin's still around, as she of all people should know he's just as immortal as she is (and I'd hardly call Hazel being punished for giving Salem the wrong answer development). You could argue that Ozpin hiding away, like the cowardly Dumbledore that he is, could be a big issue somewhere down the line. But given how development works in this series, it's just as likely that it won't amount to anything but him being the same little punk-ass we already know he is and returning just in time to save everyone or give them some more info that he should have told them from the start.

Like I said, these scenes weren't necessarily bad. It just would have been nice if they were attached to bigger things and not stitched together into one entry that managed to be boring even by "breather episode" standards. I'm gonna revisit this when the volume is over. Because aside from Qrow giving up on Ozpin (and maybe Ozpin running like a bitch), I wanna see if things really would have been different, had we not had these scenes. My money's on no.

Vol 6 Ep 2: Uncovered

In which our heroes FINALLY get tired of Ozpin's shit. No, really, they finally stop to ask him what the hell is ACTUALLY going on, decide to not take his word, and say "fuck it" and call on their magic lamp to answer for them.

Still feels too little, too late, that we're getting answers...6 volumes in.

-Aaaaaaand as soon as the OP ends, Cinder is confirmed to be back. Goddammit RoosterTeeth. Couldn't even make it past episode 2.

-It's also not long until they have back-to-back exposition dumps.

-One being explaining what the hell the Relic actually DOES where...you know...a hint of what it does would have been appreciated a bit sooner? Like, end of Vol 5 sooner?

-At least Jinn's hot...

-...oh hey she was played by Colleen Clinkenbeard too! That's a catch.

Ep 4 comment

Why does everyone hate Oz again? It's not like he's misusing anyone.

It'd be nice to know all of this stuff in the first place but I'm sure he probably told Phyrra some of the grand scheme of things.

They hate him again because he kept ALL of that enormous info from them, especially when Yang made him promise "No more lies & half-truths".

Ozpin probably did tell Phyrra EVERYTHING when he requested she be the fall maiden, but didn't feel he could tell the other girls anything. Now at the moment, Ozpin's ashamed of himself & it's gonna take A LOT to get team RWBY to trust him again.

Episode 5

Oh that Cinder V. Neo fight MORE than makes up for the snoozefest that was last week's episode. I've missed these kinds of fights, SO fucking much! Please keep this kind of action up, RWBY crew.

As for the rest of the episode, it was...really good. Nice pacing. Good setup for future plots. Character building moments that didn't feel unneeded. Overall, this ws a good week

I'm going to take a bold guess....Oz made Oscar run. I get Jaune's anger tho, especially since it might turn out Phyrra maybe didn't need to become the fall maiden since Salem is immortal. (I think it's obvious that the 4 maidens are needed to kill Salem I think)

I'm actually liking the pacing so far this season, was kinda worried that they would spend more than half the season getting to Argus.

While there wasn't a new episode this week, when they aired Ep 8 on their RT Channel beta, right after they showed the whole first ep of Gen:Lock. Not sure if we're getting only two more eps or 4 like last vol.

Well this was a character building episode, I'm pretty sure we're going to see a full fledged Emerald vs Mercury fight before the show is over. I really enjoyed that little argument they had.

Also totally didn't expect to have that Phyrra reminder midway through the episode.

Ep 10 is up for FIRST subscribers and Ep 9 is available to everyone

Ep 10 thoughts
That Adam reveal was great, completely worked out, had me thinking that it wasn't him for a couple minutes and just Qrow's semblance. Really liking the subplot with him as well

Ep 12 is up for First Members/VRV Subbies.

And with that, Yang/Blake shippers rejoice and we also say goodbye to Adam, was not expecting him to die here but unlike Cinder, he dead. Is that Weiss' father's company's branding on his face though?

As for the Post Credits scene coming next episode, I think we're going to see Cinder/Neo catching up on RWBY, sounds like Blake and Yang may get separated from the rest of the group at the end too

After recent allegations that have come to light, Rooster Teeth has decided that Vic Mignogna will no longer voice Qrow
