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?

    That ending scene was extremely instense. I really hope neither parents die. Ghira is a well structured character (so far) and Kali is simply amazing. She may not have done much of anything yet, but i feel her character will be very great in the future (if they have a future).

      Plot twist: Tuckson (I think that's who you're talking about) is Ghira's long lost/estranged brother who left the family back home to pursue his dreams in Vale, but then Mercury and Emerald happened.

    That moment when Weiss acts as the better team leader than Ruby.... I guess this one can be added to the many mistakes Ozpin has made.

      No this is a good point. Weiss has developed the best as a character and is probably the strongest out of the team now. Rubys development has been really dumb. People think she understands loss and the cruel reality of the real world but i raise the point that 1. She wanted to be a huntress and its not a long life career. Constantly put in situations that put you at deaths risk and 2. Her mum is dead from being a huntress. Loss should have been real to ruby from day 1.

    Dang, the scene with Ilia was really intense. I wasn't prepared for the amount of emotion poured out, and I had to replay it a couple times. But my dumbass didn't get that Ilia actually loved Blake until I started reading the comments. Also, now Blake will have a reason to go to Mistral other than her duty to protect a school she's never been too, she'll have revenge to plan out.

      Not seeing Blake this Saturday will be painful and we're unlikely to see what happens until a week and a half once you look at CRWBY's pattern.  The camp will be the center focus.  Here's to hoping for an episode that's long enough to cover both though.  Also Ghira and Kali are both dead to me.  Sorry folks but one of them will throw their life for the other, but neither of them will make it out alive.

    Giving all my love to CRWBY for this amazing episode. Loved the level of detail too, like the four birds in the beginning, with one flying off on its own (Blake), or, as someone else mentioned, Blake apparently has a scar from when she was stabbed. That and the facial expressions were amazing! I loved Barb, Kara, Arryn, and Cherami's performances this episode. They were absolutely perfect. Also, that spider faunus looks less creepy than I was imagining, but it's still a really cool and unique design. Also, yay, new faunus! Still waiting for birds.

    Maybe RT is giving Blake so many love interests because she isn't getting as much love from the fandom as the other characters.

      No, a lot of people love Blake, they just hate the route the creators keep making for her, that's why they get angry.


      Other than that, Blake is awesome!!

  • Dommod1995

    5 days ago

    Okay WOW, that was an intense episode, both in terms of the emotional weight as well as the action at the end!!!


    So to begin this chapter, we start at the courtyard of the house that RWY, JNR, Oscar and Qrow have been staying at; I have to comment on how stunning the scenery in Mistral is, as well as how tranquil the background music was. I really enjoyed the cute sisterly moment where Yang dangles her hair over Ruby to make her giggle, it's moments like these that I was looking forward to after Ruby and Yang reunited. Also really liked Ruby's comment about how 'nice Weiss strikes again', Weiss really has gotten nicer as the show has progressed.


    Moving on to the more serious emotions of this scene is Yang's reaction to Blake being brought up; I wasn't sure what I was expecting, I knew that she was hurt due to Blake's abandonment and that there would be some underlying anger or resentment, but I didn't expect it to be this intense at just the mention of Blake. The later scene with Weiss and Yang helps put things into perspective; Blake leaving is only the latest departure in a long line of people abandoning Yang, first Raven left, then Summer died, after that Taiyang was emotionally damaged and kept busy with teaching and to add onto all of that Yang had no one to confide in due to Ruby being to young.


    Because of Yang's loneliness, I think Weiss was the perfect person to talk to her in this moment. While Yang has been more physically abandoned by her family, Weiss has been more emotionally abandoned, despite the fact that her family members are all alive (also wow, having to hear that your parents don't love each other on your 10th birthday is so messed up). I also like how Weiss stated that there were different types of loneliness as I think it relates to the quote at the start of the 'White Trailer'. I thought the rendition of 'The path to isolation' was very fitting for this scene due to the theme of loneliness, I also really loved how Weiss said she would be there for Yang; I'm not sure if they're setting up a romantic relationship between Weiss and Yang or whether the writers are just trying to strengthen their friendship but either way I am totally cool with it.


    Now, to the Blake scenes! We start with Blake finding the note from Ilia and then Sun coming to fetch Blake so they can do some more recruiting (it's so cool how Menagerie has a nocturnal section for certain faunus just like how there is the water market for aquatic faunus). One thing I really love about this scene is how Sun recognises that something is bothering Blake, he's become a lot more perceptive to her emotions over the course of the show and I'm really glad. 


    After this Blake go's to meet Ilia in a secluded spot but is betrayed by Ilia and ambushed by Yuma, Trifa and another White Fang member (Trifa's spider faunus trait is so cool, in fact a lot of faunus traits end up being super useful). The look of complete fear on Blake's face was really well animated, first when she learns her family is going to killed and secondly when she learns she's going to be taken to Adam. We also get a confession from Ilia that she wanted Blake to look at her the same way she looked at Adam thus confirming that Ilia had romantic feelings for Blake (therefore making Ilia the first named LGBT character, which I'm sure a lot of people are happy about); this confession also helps clarify what the relationship between Blake and Adam was.


    After Ilia and Yuma leave, Blake signals Sun to come to come save her; Sun lands on the chest of the unnamed WF member and then briefly engages in combat with Trifa managing to disarm her before Blake swings her around and knocks her out. I'm really happy that Sun's sneak attack skills have improved and love the teamwork between Blake and Sun! I'm also thrilled that Blake recognised that this might have been a trap and so she asked Sun to hide nearby just in case, really shows how much Blake's grown as a character that she's willing to ask for help instead of shouldering the burden by herself. 


    On to the final section, It was great when Kali just picked up the fallen guard's weapon and started firing without hesitation, also Ghira's a beast when it comes to hand to hand combat (hope he has an unlocked aura). First he grabs a WF member by the leg and slams him against the wall, then he 'gut punches' another guy into the air and slams his head into the ground and after that he 'karate chops' a final dude in the neck. The Albain twins weapons are quite interesting, I wonder how good they are in a fight. Anyway now we finally know Ghira's faunus trait is claws as opposed to cat feet or fur, also that roar at the end was terrifying! I guess Ghira pulled of his coat so he could be more agile, luckily he still has the armour around his lower torso.


    I'm really worried for Ghira, Kali and Sun in this fight because I think if anyone's going to die it going to be one of those three (I really don't want Sun to die as he's one my favourite characters and I want to see his relationship with Blake continue to develop). I've heard people talking about if Ilia can be redeemed or not, I think it depends on the outcome of the fight; if Ghira, Kali or Sun is killed than I don't think there will be any redemption for Ilia as she would have directly caused the death of someone Blake cares about deeply! 


    I feel like there is a strong parallel between Ilia in this episode and Adam in chapter 11 of volume 3, both stating romantic interest in Blake while at the same time planning to hurt or kill someone Blake cares about! I feel like this was foreshadowed in chapter 5 when Blake said that Ilia was 'not like Adam, not yet at least' and then she stated 'but I don't know how long that will last'.


    Even though the fight scenes were short in time, I believe they were high in quality(good animation, exciting choreography); the voice acting and facial animations were tremendous this chapter! Fantastic job CRWBY!!!

    After the talk Weiss and Yang had I can see a Yang and Blake reunion going one of three ways.

    1) Yang hits Blake and yells at her letting all of her anger out.

    2) Yang has a complete emotional break down while hugging Blake.

    3) Number 1 followed by number 2

    Why is Blake all of a sudden everyone's love interest? First Adam, with his unhealthy obsession with her, then the Bumblebee ship that is turning canon, then Sun, who is absolutely being friend-zoned, and now Illya, who apparently was going all "notice me, senpai" before Blake left the White Fang. Heck, with just a little push, I'm sure that Checkmate could become a legitimate thing. I understand having some romance in the show, even the shipping kind that is Bumblebee. But this is way to much for one character.

    I know this is gonna sound like a complaint but why no Jaune? I mean I get everyone didn't like him in Volume 1 but seriously no training, non of him talking to Oscar even him just bonding with team rwby would be nice, not saying I dislike the attention on Team Rwby in general but when you have such a wide range of characters staying with just those people starts to grow boring if your like me who actually preferred the JNPR or even Jaune story line.

    • ksxa2

      5 days ago

      I share some of your sentiments, sometimes I feel that RWBY's screen time can feel a little shoved in my throat for me. Yeah, I'm more of a JNPR fan myself and to see them barely get any attention is rather disheartening. I've been wanting to see Jaune's background for awhile now, such as his father and grandfather whom were described as "great heroes" by him, then there's of course his 7 sisters. Just from the little information I heard of them, I already find them way more interesting than RWBY's family members. Seeing RWY in this episode talk with one another over Blake, I don't get why the show can't also show Jaune, Ren and Nora speaking together and conveying their grief over Pyrrha's loss. If you ask me, a teammate dying is a lot more significant than merely leaving. But no, RT decides to just "Let's just continue to focus more on RWBY because they're the protagonist characters and everyone else are not as important." This is exactly why I feel that having other interesting characters can be rather complicated, because the less attention they get, the more interest I have on them to the point that I think it's reverse psychology.

      I think it was kind of a final confession kind of thing; for all Ilia knows that could've been the last time she saw Blake before she was taken to Adam and even if she did see her again Blake wouldn't want to talk to her after Ilia killed her parents so she probably wanted to get it off her chest, plus it related to when Blake said 'You don't have to do this, this isn't you' as it shows Blake doesn't understand Ilia as well as she thought she did! There are also some people in the FNDM who have been wanting an LGBT character to be introduced, so that kind of factors in as well.

I wasn’t expecting the love triangle already, but then you guys flip the script and have it so Ilia was crushing on Blake instead of Adam. And I am absolutely LOVING the character development with Ruby, Weiss, and Yang. And Blake is slowly starting to find her way as well. Great job guys! 

    P.S. Geera, Kali, and Sun are totes in the danger list of getting killed off. I’m scared

    Not everyone's got aura unlocked. I get it.

    Aura requires a conscious effort. I get it.


    However Sun in Season 1 as an aura-user was able to defeat 12 generic white fang henchmen *with no effort*. From what we've seen so far one single guard using aura (or Ghira himself) should've been enough to take down the whole raid team.


    Blake is also skilled enough to activate her aura in time, but instead was knocked down by the bat-guy, having a hard time getting up. Not to mention all non-generic white fang members were described by Blake of being hardened by the environment; hardened enough she was able to pass Beacon's tests with outstanding results, implying they all develop auras. Yet spider woman and bat guy were taken day waaaay too easily. Maybe they just got recently promoted from being generic hench?

    • luminedracone

      Bat guy, also known as Yuma, was not taken down, he left with Ilia before Blake called Sun in for help. The person that Sun took down was some unnamed White Fang member.

    • AlZanfardino

      Aura and semblance are different. Aura only protects the body from harm, or enhance attacks and use dust. Semblance is a manifestation of the aura in a unique way to the person. Volume 1 Sun's semblance needed him to focus for a while before the copies showed up. Blake's semblance would have saved her from the bat but she didn't know the attack was coming so how could she have dodged out of the way? 


      And if you recall you need to focus the aura prior to being hit so that you can shield from the damage, the bat and spider had no time to focus on defense so they were unable to protect themselves. So yes aura would have helped, but if you can't move (spider-webbed) then how can you fight? 


      Also the raid team consented of numerous mid-to-high ranking White Fang members so they would be able to protect themselves in a fight, they also had the element of surprise which is the greatest factor in deciding who may win.

      Sun was trained as a Huntsman at Shade Academy. The team guarding Kali and Ghira (as well as those who went after Blake) are not, so at most they'd have Aura, but not nearly to the level/skill of Huntsmen

      ^Not to mention, Blake walked into the trap knowing she'd be ambushed, specifically to get information. Once the right moment came, she deliberately called for Sun

      Seems like we're in for a pivotal showdown with the Albain brothers.  Hopefully that will be the episode where they've diverted the attention of the choreographers, and won't leave us questioning if the writers have forgotten how Aura works.  RWBY still has capability for fantastic fights like with Tyrian and the Nuckalavee, despite some over-dramatic proclamations.  But scenes where there HASN'T been any attention paid to the fighting are obvious, and do take us out of the show.  Trifa (the spider woman) and her partner were knocked out with single blows.  But compare them to the showdown with the Malachite Twins, in the Yellow trailer:  A pair of club dancers, with no real role in the show, managed to give and receive more blows than the elite assassins of the White Fang.  How can that be?  


      Also worth noting that half the blows in that scene relied on people coming in from off-screen.  Blake is knocked down by someone landing on her, Sun takes out his target by landing on them, and Trifa is taken out because Blake grabs her from outside the shot, then we cut to a punch.  This seems to be a trick to imply that a blow is powerful without making the effort to account for however-the-heck Aura works.

      At worst they're consistent in being inconsistent.  Hand-to-hand and other blunt attacks seem to always get through and hurt, like Ruby's training with Oscar/Ozpin, or JNPR vs BRNZ, while cutting and stabbing attacks need to be blocked with an active aura shield, like Ren vs the King Taijitu or Ruby during the fight with Tyrian.  And if there is a large enough difference you can get through the Aura and still land your strike, like Adam cutting Yang's arm or Pyrrha sending Penny's swords back at her.

      Ghira is obviously a panther since the moment he was introduced xD He's based on Bagheera from the jungle book since siennah Khan was based from Sher Khan

      Thanks vodkaluchon71 for pointing out Siennah’s reference, I hadn’t picked up on that before. Now I just need to find Baloo ( whose name I can’t spell ).

      The white fang is racist: anti-human race...

      the white fang is faunist: pro-Faunus race...


      That work for you?

    Yep honestly feel like Ghira is gonna die. So two things are gonna happen. 


    1. Dad And/Or Mom dies Sun and Blake get beat up and Blake gets shipped to Mistral.


    2. Dad and/or Mom die Sun and Blake beat the crap out of the intruders and the two head to Mistral to help Blake get classic revenge.  


    I'm honestly gonna go with two.  


    Edit : Sadly either way Ghira is going to die. :( i'm not sure why he needs to but he is going to.

      Still think it's going to be Kali myself. The classic "significant other dives in at the last second"

      At this point, I'm just wondering if Blake will arrive before or with the Faunus reinforcements that will turn the tide during the battle of Haven.  Being shipped to Adam opens even more options.

      Ghira may die so that, storywise, Blake is empowered to assume his mantle as a true champion of all people and defender of the Faunus. Even though she won’t inherit his political position, the assassination of what I suspect was a generally beloved chieftain and icon of recent Faunus history, paired with an inability to wipe out the entire family, will push many citizens out of fearfulness / nativism that let them sympathize with Adam’s White Fang.

      Because CRWBY has demonstrated that they don't mind sending us down emotional roller coasters and making us tear up/ball our eyes out......I have to assume that both of them will die.  One of them will throw their life for the other who will die shortly afterward.  When in a fit of rage you aren't thinking as well as you would otherwise.  Sun is probably safe though and so is Illia.

      I'm afraid if both parents die Blake goes...to dark places on her path to revenge.  Like "public executions, take no prisoners" dark places.
