My thoughts on Episode 7:
First, I think it was pretty obvious that Cinder was going to convince Neo that she should be the one who should kill Ruby and Neo seems to be VERY eager to do so, although technically it was the Griffin that killed Roman, but Neo doesn't know that so.... Uh oh.
Next, I thought it was kind of redundant for someone to have the nickname "Grimm Reaper", but seeing as how she had the skull mask, the awesome scythe and powers many can't explain, it's a good fit for someone like that. It was our first time seeing a crocodile faunas, which I think she looked very creepy. I think it was pretty clear that Salem could be the master she was talking about. This could be during the age when Salem wanted to hunt down all those who had Silver Eyes. I feel really sorry for Maria for losing her powers and I can't blame her for quitting and going into hiding. I was really surprised to here that SHE was Qrows idol and he based her weapon on her. She must have been a very skilled and heroic huntress to be considered a legend. It would be great for Maria to teach Ruby how to use her Silver Eyes.
Next, it's kinda mean for Jaunes picture to say "Vomit Boy" on her scroll, but I know she's just kidding. I must say, it really warmed my heart to see that everyone cares about each other so much that they all hug each other at their reunion. I shed a tear or two at that. Nora hugs Oscar, Ren hugs Yang, Blake hugs Jaune, (which is the best interaction we'vw seen Blake have with anyone in JNR), Jaune is the first one Weiss greets and Ruby and Jaune share the most tender reunion with Jaune with Jaune shedding a tear.
I was expecting Argus to look Greek-themed or something, but it looks just like downtown San Francisco instead, which makes it SO much better with the street cars and houses and businesses scrolling up and down hill. I think it's beautiful. It was nice to see JNR have all the knowledge and explain something for a change.
Then, FINALLY!!!! YES!! We finally meet someone from Jaunes family! His older sister Saphron. And not only did we meet one of his seven sisters, but we also meet his baby nephew, Adrian. That's right! Jaune is an uncle!! How awesome is that?! After arriving at Saphrons house, Yang and Weiss are all goo-goo eyed over Adrian, Saphron is teasing her LITTLE brother and we see a photo of all the Arc siblings. We've got the goofy twins, the smart one with the glasses, the tomboy with short hair and the missing tooth, the casual one who lies upside down in the photo, the one who looks the most normal, the eldest who stands in the back and of course poor Jaune with pig tails, holding a sign that says "HELP" and looks like he wants to be anywhere but there. That was funny!! It's hard to tell which one is Saphron, but seeing as how she has dark blond hair and only one of the sisters in the same, I'm guessing that's her. Plus, I think it's safe to assume that Jaune could be the youngest of them all unless one of them is younger.
But most surprising of all, was meeting his sisters wife!! Yep, her WIFE!!! Jaunes sister is a full blown LGBQT!! I know that Ilia is the first we've meet, but this is the first full blown gay couple in the show. I'm sure many fans are happy about this, I know I am. Her name is Terra Cotta Arc. Yep. Terra Cotta, she's named after the hand made pottery. She works at the towns radio tower and is one of the people who runs it. Both of them seem very happy with their child.
This is now my favorite episode of the the season AND the show. So far, anyway.
Theory on episode 8:
Finding out why no one is allowed in the tower, they'll discuss how they can get to Atlus, RWBY informing JNR on everything about Salem and Ozpin and more on Jaunes background.
