Seriously. How the fuck did Mercury do that? Or did someone else on team evil fuck with Yang's head? What even is going on this season?

Im glad you raise the point. That really puzzled me too. I have pulled out some interesting test and research to get my idea. Here that go .....
1: Cinder leave just before the fight.
2: I have find this line on the wiki speaking about cinder divers power:
She also seems to be skilled in manipulating people, having infiltrated Beacon Academy along with her partners Mercury and Emerald without raising suspicion to herself, and having others believe her to be from Haven Academy. To what extent ?
3: Very interesting fact about the LAST STOMACH BLOW Mercury take. The camera clearly show some white aura surrounding him with a unique particular sound both not seen nor heard previously in the fight. Not to mention his ubberly fake whining about the hit he received.
4: And the huge point. Its obvious that there is a sound overlapping mercury's last words about " that there WOUND'N BE NO NEXT TIME.
It may sound excessive but I have isolate that " overlap " sound with an oscillator and apply several filters. For those who would like to try it , drop the speedpitch to 0.00 then apply a slightly higher then normal HighPass filter. Its not a sound its a VOICE. PURE SPECULATION
5: Yang dont turn back until she hear THAT sound/voice which seem to surprise her. Now , if you observe the distance accumulate between them after the last blow ( good distance ) indicate that yang is the ONLY person to have the RIGHT POV on the distance between em. Before turning back and walking she speak and look in mercury direction. Now compare with the camera , take her spot where she should speak and walk back , she's almost in mercury's back. She would'n talk in the empty like the situation / Camera suggest.
6:Camera / situation show the same pattern , she walk back and make few steps. Difference is where mercury is standing. Every single person in the arena has seen what the video is showing its obvious judging by the face R,W,B are puttings. EVEN EMERALD HAD THE SAME POV.... for HER GAZE wasn't fake at all. Why would cinder pull out a trick to smoke everyone include EMERALD ? Again , there are facts that help that suggestion. I'll end with it.
7: Finally , Observe yang face 1: when she hear the voice , 2: when she notice the threat of mercury. 2 completely different reaction. Now Emerald........... The most interesting element.
8: From the Wiki: Emerald shows a strong sense of loyalty, specifically to Cinder, whom she appears incredibly eager to please. Accordingly, she is willing to take the initiative to impress her, such as tracking down Tukson and killing him. When Cinder rebukes her for killing Tukson, she defers to Cinder's judgement, quickly apologizing.
" Unlike Cinder and Mercury, Emerald's eyes are more circular in shape. In practice, this style of eyes is normally reserved for positive/innocent characters " Wiki.
Edit: Sorry , last call......
Just to add to weight to my theory.... Neopolitan is also digging into illusion and such practice ... It could be a common learning from Haven Academy. But what convinced me are those quote and lines.
On the Wiki you can read that " Neo is so far the only character who has attempted to finish off an already defeated opponent. " in yang. And the picture right after we can see her backing and fleeing from Raven with description of the photo being " the only one she ever feared " which is very personal meaning to me. So Yang IS a TARGET. They all know she can unleash the same power / rage as her mother so she was the first target to eliminate from the very beginning in my opinion. I would go as far as stating that the fight between Yang Vs Mercury wasn't even a random.
Cinder had previously stated almost perfectly her plan to get ride of Yang.
" It's not about overpowering an enemy. It's about taking away what power they have. And we will, in time. "
Cinder to Mercury.
Mission accomplish for Cinder. We know the Long " family " scare the shit outta NEO and probably Cinder making Yang target #1 from RWBY. Cinder is actually the only one from that side to actually have high power over manipulation , may it be an area of minds. Not to mention the manipulation of weapons to make it become what she desire and the VERY VERY importent detail about the fact that she has high control over raw dust. ( i'll get back to this ) Now check this out , 2 fights where we observe some " delusional " phenomenon's. 2 Fights where Cinder is present. In the 2 fight , from the moment the loser receive the fatal blow , there is exactly 30secs elapsing before we witness the " Dellusion " phenomenon. In both fight , the person being use as a Smoke & mirror to everyone's eyes were in contact with ..... fire. To me , Cinder seem to be able to capture and manipulate space & time reality only seen by her victim / complice within a certain window of time while she " Smoke " the rest of an area the way she see fit , manipulating minds is nothing new to her. Rethink about it. Yang fatal blow to Mercury trigger a very obvious even accentuated by the clip camera , white aura around him also making a unique sound never heard before. From that exact point , 30secs later , Yang found herself hitting Mercury. Cinder's show with honorable mention.
When both " area of illusion " and reality end together the way Cinder intended , slight change by the illusion just keep goin giving the result that everyone saw Yang aggresse Mercury , INCLUDIND THE CAMERA VIDEO cause this is what happened outside the actual " jailed reality " or " Window of influence " Yang was in. Difference from the first fight that cinder watch chillin with popcorn till the end and the Yang & Mercury fight is that Cinder here kinda needed some kind of double action influence and this is why she leave BEFORE the fight. Now with my HUGE plausible theory still base on wiki and reliable sources.
You guys have read about all existing dusts ? The originals , the mixed up ones .... There is only one missing completely the description about it. The " Gravity " one. Like if we must not know too much about it yet. Well , I think I do ....... Oum and his team has mention that dust dont need weapons to be use and mention more then once that they GLOW. Episode on 16:46 show , after Yang aggression , a lot of remnants looking in the direction of Beacon and I doubt they would suddenly be trippin on Beacon's view , their attention is drawn to the tower just below , where dust seem to shine BIIIIIIIG time in there like if someone was needing LOTS of power , maybe for the sake of acting and manipulating on a double edge way , Smoking up a whole crowd only seeing the end of the " delusional reality " set up only for Yang. I raise the theory that Cinder is the first user of that " Gravity " kind of dust. Gravity when discuss on its biggest state , black holes , often imply by professionals the possibility to affect " Time & Space " , Like a jailed reality of 30secs or a misplace Mercury. Mix it with her already acquire skills of " Mind Manipulation " and you get the end of chapter 6. No surprise she stood and leaved right at the beginning of this fight. That would had taken time to generate. And no need to mention that Cinder have all the dust she may need thx to Roman.
That's my PoV.
