so rwby volume 3 was dark as all hell, id say it was as dark as berserk, but with it being based on fairy tales and folklore i think we may see that death isnt final. so we have our queen beryl in the form of salem. and we have frieza in the form of cinder, which in turn both deaths caused by her cause ruby to become goku and go super saiyan. i have a feeling that adam and raven have some connection to salem whether they know it or not and im basing that on their masks. jaune is totally gonna have to go into the underworld like in the odyssey or something similar in order to bring pyrrha back. penny is a robot she'll be back. i dont think we will see much of yang or blake for season4, i think weiss will be prominent and likely run away from home and somehow meet up with ruby and company.
