    Nora and Ren made me laugh repeatedly throughout the episode, but Jaune and Pyrrha made we want to cry for a thousand years. I don't know if I can finish re-watching this season.

    Yang has the sadest puppy eyes, in anime, I've ever seen. I want Ren's apron: "Please, Do nothing to the cook."


    So Uncle Qrow has a heart, meaning he's not a totally bad influence. But what Yang's mom said was just cruel. Abandons her kid then gives that kind of message?


    What doesn't make sense (at least to me) is why Qrow didn't suspect Yang had fallen for an illusion, since he'd already encountered that same power from Emerald. Granted he didn't know it was her I'd think simply reflecting back upon his own experience with saving Autumn that he'd remember fighters who suddenly vanished from sight. I mean, intelligence gathering is his job right? Can't he piece two and two?


    Ouch, Jeane. Saying all the right things but at the wrong time.

    • Dusk_Huber

      Well, if you recall the moment before when Emerald had a headache in the ambulance directly after Yang's illusion, she mentioned that while one mind is fine, two is difficult. This suggests to me that the illusions are specific to the minds she concentrates on, and during the fight with Amber, she only was focused on her; Qrow was an unforeseen factor, therefore she never directed her illusions to him and he never experienced the illusions. To him it looked like three people attacking the Fall Maiden, with no mind tricks.

  • Sojoph

    Oh, speaking of subtle body language, did anyone else catch at the beginning when Ironwood was talking to the girls in their dorm room, that he kinda shifted around his right arm when he said something like, "...see things that simply aren't there...even after the fight has passed." (somewhere around the 2:12 mark)


    Could something have happened to his arm? Accident in a fight? Could it be a robotic arm? He kinda is wearing a glove on just his right hand...

    • Harkus

      2 years ago

      Spoilers for later in the season, although hopefully you're up to date.


      It is a robotic arm, and a lot of people with prosthetic limbs experience 'phantom pains' where they feel as if their missing limb is still attached (itching and the like), so it could simply be a reference to that; even though his arm is gone he still sometimes sees it and feels it, "even after the battle is over".

  • Sojoph

    2 years ago

    Everyone else probably already noticed this and I'm just really slow to the party... But when Pyrrha talked about something unexpected coming in between her and her destiny, could she be referring to Jaune and how she clearly feels about him?


    When watching the chapter for the first time, I originally thought she was talking about the whole Fall Maiden situation being dropped on her out of nowhere, until I noticed that she quickly gave a small look over at Jaune (around 11:56 ) when she specifically said, "What would you do if SOMETHING came along that you never expected?"


    And watching the series, as well as the Production Diary videos, it's quite apparent that the animators do tend to take a lot of care and put meaning into some of the subtle details, body language, and movements of the characters on screen (which I love; I'll rewind some scenes just to catch some of those subtle animations again). Pyrrha's little eye shift at that moment might be one of them?

    Still a little bummer that Qrow turned out not to be Ruby's real uncle.

  • JMuells

    2 years ago

    What if Raven is a villian? "She wanted me to tell you that she saved you once, but don't expect that kind of kindness again." Then Qrow talks about how they have differing world views. Maybe Cinder isn't the highest rung on the villian ladder.

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

      We already know she isn't. Whoever she was talking to in ch.7 definitely ranks higher.

  • dlandini

    This could come out wrong, so don't be so hard, but how could anyone, included Jaune who is not the smartest (but still I love him) and a man above all, could know what to tell to a scared and sulking Pyrrha in that situation?

      He showed he could find the words last season in the dance episode.

    • animalia

      The ironic thing is what he said would NORMALLY be the correct thing. He thought he was encouraging Phyrra. It's just that do to a lack of information Encouragement wasn't what Phyrra needed at this time.

    • Dusk_Huber

      2 months ago

      Pyrrha was distressed, and Jaune, being the good Arc that he is, wanted to help her feel better, I know he would've done the same regardless of the situation. What I find offensive is not that you said how could anyone including Jaune try to help, it was when you said "a man above all." I'm very much aware that men aren't the greatest things in the world, in fact I'd be one of the first to say we are gross, immature, often violent, and pig headed. But not all of us are like that, LEAST of all Jaune. If anything, if he had long hair when he wore that dress he'd make a pretty convincing girl in my opinion, but that's not what I'm getting at here. If there are some bad apples in the basket, throw them out and make apple tarts, instead of apple pie, with the rest. I think I understand what you're trying to say, and I know you didn't mean any offense by it judging by your start of the comment, but what you said was quite sexist, and I don't appreciate it. If you had left out the mention of men I wouldn't be saying any of this, but you did, so I must protest.

    I keep watching this and I am not understanding how emerald's powers can effect every watching the broadcast. Every one at the venue ok maybe she has that strong an aura, effecting people who are not even in the area continents away watching through a tv screen kinda took me out of the show.

      she didnt affect everyone, just yang. yangs pov was the illusion, not the audience's.

    • JMuells

      I am pretty sure she tricked Yang into thinking Mercury was attacking, because tricking one person would probably be easier than fooling everyone else

    If Crow was the one to save Autumn from Cinder and her two cunts, how come he doesn't recognize Mercury during his fight with Yang? Sure he may have not been able to get a good look at him at the time, but surely he would find him familiar. Also, if he was in the field gaining information, how did he not come up with any info on either Mercury or Emerald? It just seems too convenient.

    • henrycool01

      2 years ago

      that's probably what Cinder is going for the question is why did she not want the war to end when nobody won did a family member die in the war or a lover die in the war or does she just want the maidens power so she can be queen of the world and destroy all the kingdoms army's with her own army when the time is right

    Watching it one last time before Saturday morning. Jaune, my man, I feel for you. A lesser man would've been slightly offended by being flung into a wall by an amazonian. Not Jaune, his first thought upon hitting the ground was what he could've said wrong. Team JNPR, you are amazing. Never stop being you. "Please do nothing to the cook."

    I just noticed something ...... 1:22 it shows this dark energy or something and that was shown before. If you watch the beginning of the end, when Cinder takes half of ambers fall maiden power she puts on a glove. When she does it does that same little animation then the spider or whatever it is comes out....

      Don't mind that, that's just the ever-present 'Eye of Sauron' that has appeared in EVERY intro since the first Volume. Take another look. It also appeared when Cinder detonated her arrows, which has led me to believe it is some form of Summoning.
