According a reddit page (I caved) we get to learn why the Maidens are so important to Salem's master plan.
As it turns out it's what we'd already expected it to be for a very long time.

'It was on that night that Team RNJR would forever be scarred to the sounds of creaking bed springs. Any time they would hear the sound of creaking bed springs their minds would flash back to that horrible moment that they had burst into Qrow's room and had the horrid image of depravity inside seared into their minds."
What if that's how we see winter this Volume for the first time?

It's early where I'm at, but I just had two random thoughts. First, why does it seem the crew keeps showing us they can build the old models in the new system if they're never going to be used beyond the shorts? Second, I rewatched the first episode and heard Salem's speech about "mankind coming from dust". I'm not claiming this will happen, but what character go turned to dust and, if they make a reappearance, wouldn't have been able to shop for a new outfit?

Somebody recorded the intro. All I can say is this:
People are going to ship Spring Maiden and Cinder. No question. The two look hellacious gay at each other. Cinder x Emerald is out.
And Oscar is a god damn Jedi Knight. I might actually have a reason to watch Star Wars now. Calling it, his father is a bad guy!
Oh, and Nora loves the audience!

i dont THINK i have to spoiler tag this since its not about the episode itself, but i will anyway
a LOT of the comments i read said they didnt care much for the opening song/animation. Said it didnt feel like a RWBY song and that the animation itself was 'too anime' for their taste.

I've heard that reaction to the opening is mixed. Some like it, others don't. I guess it comes down to personal taste. Though I didn't initially like the Volume 3 OP either, but it grew on me after a few episodes. Maybe this will be the case for some folks.

I was very tempted to read spoilers last night, but was able to stop myself before I got too deep. All I know that it's a whopping 23 minutes long and that some questions will be answered (not sure which ones). Also it seems most people liked it, including people that didn't like Volume 4, but I stopped reading before a consensus was formed.
#33666498 - 6 months ago
Well i actually couldnt stop myself and ended up reading a detailed account of what happens
Needless to say my hype is pretty much gone. Im not saying my impression is right-far from it, i sincerly hope im wrong-but if it is and the volume goes how i think their setting it up to go, the curse of the second volume in a cycle being not that great reuturns.
Again, ive turned into a pretty big cynic, my opinion wont likely be the majority.
Im sure there are a fair number of people who will say this Volume was a masterpiece by the time its done
Everyone has an opinion and all that

It's weird for me because I like When it Falls as a song, but I wish the visuals were better. In contrast I like Let's Just Live's visuals, but I don't like the song. As for people who think the new OP is "too anime" I think it's gonna have to fight Time to Say Goodbye for that title. That OP is very anime.

So one thing I am seeing from spoilers and from the Interview I posted
If the Spoilers are correct then they just Lied on interview.
Barb said Yang was hyperfocused on Ruby and her friends but people are saying she is looking for Raven not Ruby and its confirmed in the Episode. So unless there is a link I am not aware of.
Barb lied on the interview.

She has short boyish black hair, looks like a biker biker chick, and has a Raven tattoo on her arm.
I'm guessing she might be a "surrogate daughter" for Raven in place of Yang as a way to cope not being there to raise her own child so she took Spring under her wing so to speak.
