Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

    Also just a thought as I was looking at the intro in light of Ghira going to full panther-mode: is the leverage that Salem has over Leonardo is that he is a faunus in a high level position?


    Oz put him there because he was good at the job, and personally doesn't give a flying frak about him being human or faunus.  Considering the no faunus sign outside the bar Qrow went to earlier, Mistral could be very anti-faunus.  Salem might be using that to blackmail Leo (i.e. a lion faunus.)  He has the impression of an old, captive lion I once saw in a zoo. :(

      Well, we are talking about Monty Oum’s characters. Ruby is Little Red Riding Hood,Yang is Goldilocks, in all honesty Leo’s character is probably the Cowardly Lion.

      That's actually a really interesting way to look at it. Like you said Oz doesn't give a flak, but it seems parts of Mistral would. But then where does Sun come into this? He's a Faunus and he attended Haven Academy with the rest of team SSSN so I wouldn't think most of the faculty would have a problem with Leo being a Faunus.

    I know that it would make zero sense from a dramatic standpoint and all the character build up. But I just want next episode to begin with Blake arriving back at the house to see all the enemies absolutely destroyed, Sun looking shocked, and Ghira just replying "I was made chieftain for a reason".

    Ilia's logic about Fear stamping out hate is uber flawed. Star Wars Episode One has a better idea of what fear is. It's psychologically and sociologically proven that it's just another version of hate. I also don't think I buy that comment about not liking hurting people, given the Black trailer. And where exactly 'has' it gotten her? What was Blake trying to imply?

      @Stunner900 Funny that, I was thinking they stuffed it badly. Looks up the "Psycho Lesbian" trope for why. They've taken a potentially complex character and reduced her to wanting to bet into Blake's pants and being jealous that she can't. That's really really disappointing. Could they make her a baddie and gay without the gayness having anything to do with the baddieness? Possibly. It'd be tricky to pull off in a reasonable way but it could be done. However they totally didn't.

    I don't know why everyone is hating on this volume just because their is hardly no action. I for one like this volume with it's challenge of fighting an ideology through peace not violence and the more back story we get from these characters no more than we ever got previously. I don't why every episode has to have a long drawn out fight that would get stale quick.

      People kept saying that last Volume, when the character's were being developed and most of them were moving the plot (or at least their own character arcs) along at the same time. The three episodes prior to this one were basically just characters sitting around waiting for plot to happen, while Adam's character was butchered, Oscar griped about the same thing he's been griping about, but at the same time gave no clear explanation of why he's involved, and Raven griped about Ozpin, because apparently giving someone the ability to turn into a bird at will is the worst crime you can commit against another person.
      This episode was better though.

    Holy crap there's a spider Faunus (probably shouldn't be too surprised, there's a scorpion Faunus, but still). I hope the webs are her semblance, otherwise the Faunus really are an OP species.

      Then laws of evolution dictates that everyone should be a Faunus by now. How long have they been around? Ozpin's been around for a thousand years, seems like that should be enough for everyone to have adapted.

      Be kinda sucky to be a spider faunus and not be able to produce web. Not being able to climb walls I could understand, but imagine saying "I'm part spider...but I only have 4 limbs, 2 eyes, can't shoot webs, can't climb walls, don't have a venomous bite and don't have an exoskeleton. But I'm totally like a spider" So she'd have to have at LEAST 1 of those, if not more (I assume she can climb walls and has a venomous bite) and THEN maybe has a sembalence, though I get the feeling only people who've trained get to use those. Like everyone has the potential, but few train to fight Grimm, so few have an active one

      You forget how stupid humans are, there are people who despise others because of the colour of their skin, now imagine if there were people with fucking antlers or something. There'd be a lot of people who would take one look at that and go "different, kill it with fire!". Which seems to be how the show got here.

      @Shadowwrath Because real world racial differences are miniscule and have little effect on survival. If Faunus just had hightened senses that could potentially be used against them I'd buy there still being humans, but if all arachnid faunus came with poisoned limbs and webs, that seems like a very distinct advantage that would greatly improve survival odds.

      They have sections for water living Faunas to exist comfortably, so it's very likely that it's not racism just a thing that exists there. If they have water Faunas, they most likely have Faunas who prefer night time.

      Sun said they had a section to cover? Why do they need a section. Shouldn't they just all be working the night shift at the places that are normally open during the day? That'd be a pretty smart way to bring in additional revenue. And the water sections make sense because they physically can't walk on land. and those are right next to the land sections (or as close as they can be anyway.)

      I imagine it's more like a neighborhood, not a hard-walled ghetto or anything, just where all the services and jobs are based around Faunus that only really function well at night.
      Sun saying "section" probably just means the section of Menagerie they were planning on recruiting in that night.

      There are plenty of animals that are only active at night, or only able to be active at night (light sensitivity), n having them working, partying n generally being the usual amount of noisy you get during the day, near people trying to sleep, would be pretty sucky. 

      If they lived in the same place as the daylight fanus, they'd have trouble sleeping during the day and have to be quiet during the night. 


      They're probabbly completely normal n not discriminated against or super creepy, n just do everything everyone else does (go to the market, let their kids play, hang out, get a cup of coffee) but they do it at night (which to their eyes, isn't that dark, while daylight would be blindingly bright for them)

      I somewhat agree.  The writing is definitely better than it was during the first two seasons but the tonal shift in season 3 really shook my love for this series.  I still like it but it changed too fast.  


      In RVB it used to be 90% comedy the first five seasons, then with seasons 6-8 there was about 50/50 with action and drama.  Now it seems to be mostly drama with some comedy.


      I miss the action comedy that was RWBY vol. 1 & 2.  This season is fine but unless the last few episodes contain 15 minute fightfests, it'll probably be tied with my least favorite season, which was last season.

    Where to begin for this episode: 

    Starting with RW_Y, it was nice to see that Yang is still hesitant of having Blake around and how her leaving reminds her of the past of how Raven left her and Summer left (in this case killed while out on a mission). I know a lot of people agreed that Yang had abandonment issue because of her past and Blake leaving after Beacon fell made Yang have those issues again. It was nice for her to open up about it and saying that she had to do everything herself just to get back some normalcy. Naturally it took time to get Yang back on her feet for when Summer left and after the time skip, but it was a good way to open up. 


    As for Weiss, just opening up on her mother made sense as to why she was never around in her life (and why she never appeared in Volume 4). Then again, finding out (or in this case confirming since she had a feeling) that your spouse only married you to be apart of the family for the name which also includes the fortune and business can hit a person pretty hard, so hard that she starting hitting the bottle. With no one else other than Winter, Weiss never had a happy family and now see the others as her family. She will do anything for them and it showed in her actions in previous volumes. She is the character with the most noticeable changes since the beginning of the series. It just makes me think of how they will treat Blake if and when she comes back. 


    As for the Blake story, Ilia is too far gone now and it turning out what Blake didn’t want in the first place and that’s is another Adam. It pains her to see a person she once called a friend becoming the same monster that affected the other that she once care about. I will say they are making sure that the showdown between Ilia and Blake will be as dramatic as possible and I still say that Ilia will die either in the fight or she will sacrifice herself. Also I wasn’t expecting that bombshell of Ilia having feelings for Blake (and officially, this is confirming our first LGBT character). This also means that the fanfics will be busy with their things and writing and/or drawing whatever story between these two if there wasn’t one. I wonder if anyone in the fandom knew that Ilia had feelings for Blake before today’s episode. If you did, I applaud you. Naturally Blake having Sun as a back up helped and now we see the attack on the Belladonnas. We know Ghira can fight, but now he has to fight both the Albien twins 2-1. Something tells me Ghira won’t survive the battle. As for Kali, it’s up in the air to see if she will survive. But I guess we will have to find out next time. 


    Another note: It’s sad to see the RWBY girls’ mother in the series. Summer was killed when Ruby was young, Raven left while Yang was still a baby and doesn’t even treat her well (except for that one time), and Weiss’s Mom no longer became a part of her life after the age of 10. The only one you could argue had a good relationship with their mother was Blake, however Blake did called them out when they left the White Fang and decided to leave them, not seeing or talking to her parents for at least 5 years. Of course Blake has made amends with her parents in time before the event in today’s episode and she’s hoping she can continue to have a wonderful relationship with her mother if Kali makes it out alive, as well as her father if Ghira makes it out alive, which sadly it may not happen.

      Weiss' mother did appear in V4, there's one scene where you can see her drowning her sorrows in wine.

    Nice to see Ruby, Weiss, and Yang discussing the issue of Blake's "abandonment," as they see it. Their eventual reunion will probably be the most difficult to watch yet, once all the emotions come flooding out.

    I have a bad feeling we're losing Ghira. If not immediately, then tragically as soon as everything seems fine. Kali stands a chance of living, but I'm still worried.

    Weiss really doesn't deserve so much bs in her life. Her parents really f*cked up esp her father.


    Ilia's confession was rlly suprising though. I totally ship them now!

    Dear god, why is this season is such a drag!? Even shikamaru was falling asleep when watching this boring ass exposition filled episode.

    And don't get me started on that fighting scene, it was just horribly made.

      Remnant's a fucking huge place. They're probably out somewhere fighting Grimm on the daily to keep the creatures away from smaller bastions of civilization in Vale. Or maybe they're all split up, ending up in their respective homes like what happened to RWBY.


      CFVY was just another team. They were friends with RWBY, but there were plenty of people who were friends with RWBY that we didn't even see in the show. Are you asking where's the rest of Team SSSN? How 'bout literally any other team that fought in the Vytal Festival? Remant's a huge fucking place, and they all have their individual problems, just like Team RWBY did. It's a miracle that even this one team was able to mostly reunite in the wake of the Fall of Beacon.

      Doubtful. The way Faunus genetics works, the child's animal trait is completely random if the parents aren't both the same type (both fox-trait, for instance).

    Every episode has me shaking as much as Yangs arm throughout and for about an hour after! This is fantastic.
