So, first thing i want to say is i had posted this section of text in the general discussion of the episode. But i feel like Pyrhha needed here own discussion because of the endless possibilities that went on with her. Aswell, if you have not seen the episode, it is currently out now
So, i know what im about to say will maybe make people mad, but i dont think Pyhrra is dead. Here is. my reasoning for what i said.
So, Cinder shot Pyhrra with an arrow, but not a normal arrow. It didnt have the same affect on Amber as it did Pyhrra. So, im gonna make a real auick list off effects it had on Pyhrra conpared to Amber.
Gets shot in chest
Area of where arrow hit releases Red Particles
Turns into "Orange Dust"
Gets shot and dies by arrow in chest
No reaction or after affects
Now, this makes me speculate that Cinder used a special arrow on Pyhrra. As we now know, Cinder was a "Knight"(A hand of Salem) to Salem, which makes me believe Pyhrra was teleported. Now, where exactly, to the place where Salem was at in the scene. The reason being is the background was red and corresponds with the color of the particles given off. Also, there is a chance that the arrow wasnt deep penetrating.(Dont quote me on that XD) Here is the reason, when we saw the side shot of Pyhrra before she got disinigrated, you could see the arrow sticking out really far, like it wasnt a deep wound. This makes me also to believe that it was used as a "Sleeping Agent".(I forgot what the shots are called thta make you pass out) And it was a strong dose at that. That could explain her reaction to it, grasping for breathe because the strength of the Meds.
Now, if you say the red particles was blood, no it wasnt, based on the fact that Amber didnt bleed when shot by the arrow in the same area. The arrow should have the same effect on Pyhrra as it did Amber, but it didnt.
Also, portals and teleportation is a thing we have seen before in RWBY. We saw it with Raven on the train, where see went through a portal.(The portal possibly leading to the dimension where Salem is??)
So, here is the question. If they did kidnap Pyhrra, what reason would they need her? Well, its easy. Salem said she wanted to see Ozpin burn, and that could be torturing him. Well, Pyhrra could be used as a bargaining tool. Also, this is where i hope that we would see Jaune's semblence come through, where he needs it most, for Pyhrra.
Now, if you think this is crazy, tell me why because so far, what i said, makes a lot of sense.
Aswell, we have seen that illusion can be made possible with Emerald. We dont know whta Salem's semblence is, so there is a total possibilty that we can have some sort of mind control on our hands here soon. With Pyhrra, Ozpin trusts Pyhrra and if Pyhrra is being mind controlled, then truly, they found him. Then i think Ozpin would surrender because he doesnt want to kill Pyhrra, and that is where Volume 4 will End. I feel like that would be a good ending point, right
