    Literally binged the volume 4 just so I could watch this episode spoiler-free.  I would've gotten around to it eventually, but its funny how a few more minutes of these four talking motivated me to watch hours of episodes.


    A+, will watch again. (to both this episode, and Vol4)

    This was a good video overall, but I hope they will do another one once season five plays out, but I too hope for Winter and Weiss to meet up, but I suspect that is going to also involve a Qrow vs Winter round two to set the stage for Weiss and Ruby meeting up again.

    I love watching Lindsay on Always Open - she has such a huge presence.

    It's easy to get used to her hanging with the AH guys and getting yelled at by Michael, but when she's in a girl-group scenario like this, she has a more impressive stance.  She is so much larger than them all (not fat, not pregnant, just broader) and when she starts talking, she immediately takes control of the conversation - as opposed to the other ladies who consistently talk over each other.

    It makes me respect her so much as an adult; she's gonna make a brilliant mother. ruby

    This was really great. I'm such a big fan of RWBY and just seeing y'all ladies (who, I've reiterated to myself and others, basically are their characters) discussing the events just makes it much cooler. I know we all have opinions on V4, like "nothing happened" or "too slow/boring" or "really interesting story building" or whatever....I just think we have this to remind us that it isn't perfect, but they're doing their best and obviously they're preparing for the future which is just what the show needs.


    It's basically a new season (since three volumes is qualitative to a normal season) and they're also bringing in the new animation and working out of a new office. I personally think volume 4, while slow building, is just getting everything ready for another shitstorm. We still have a lot to deal with and I'm so pumped for volume 5!


    All the hypothetical remasters at the end sounded fun too, even though it's unlikely maybe after it's all over they'll give us something special to send it off with.


    Lindsay does a great Blake impression by the way lindsay

    I'm excited for RWBY's reunion. The sisters reuniting, Weiss getting her friends back, Blake as well. The only thing I'm worried about is the bumblebee reunion. I hope Blake and Yang finally talk about what happened during the fall of beacon; I feel as those neither of them really got to process it, more so in Blake's case. Yang's dealt with it a bit, but only enough to push herself onward, never really tackling the issue itself. 

    I hope Ruby breaks too. She needs to let these feelings out, and maybe having her sis and team around will make her feel comfortable enough to do so. Man, I just want RWBY to break down and hold each other until everyone feels better. Pull each other close and finally start to heal.

    As far as the robot arm thing goes, not having a prosthetic wouldn't be conducive to Yang's fighting style. She's a brawler. And it's a hell of a lot easier to fight with two hands instead of one

      But it would be (or would've been) a hell of a lot more interesting and unique because of that. Just think about it!
      Sure, she would've had to learn to fight differently, but that would've made her even more of a badass than she already is. I think the robot arm is just the easier way out. Wich is kinda sad in a way.

    i interpreted Blake slapping sun as a kind of break-down. in my mind she only became the quiet and reserved Blake we knew when she and her parents split and she stayed with the white fang, focusing her attention on finding justice for faunas and bottling up her emotions as she couldn't cope. after finally freeing herself from the white fang, finding friends and the first real family she's had in years, only to lose them and be responsible (in her mind) for yang, someone she potentially has romantic feelings for, being seriously injured, she was in a very emotional and self-destructive place. i saw her slapping sun as all of her anger and bitterness at herself for not protecting her new family, and letting down her old one, bubbling up to the surface and, as she was unable to deal with these feelings, she resorted to the anger and violence she was conditioned into accepting whilst with the white fang.

      I've seen a lot of upset over it because of the 'normalising' of violence. Which is a good point since she just got her shit beaten up by her abusive ex whatever at Beacon.

      I was more upset at the fact that they couldn't communicate properly and she had to feel like slapping him was the only way to make him realise he was overstepping his boundaries, because even though I know he means well, it was obvious that Blake was really frustrated with him from the start. He kept messing up her attempts at sorting out her feelings which was the whole point of going home.

      You're right. It's not really noticable when watching 1 episode per week, but I just marathoned the whole thing and it very much feels like Ruby wasn't the main character this season.

      Ruby had a lot of development in the first two volumes, and then definitely had some in 3 and 4, but not all that much. I'm hoping they can focus on her more in the future. Perhaps once the team is together again.

    I think it would be awesome if next season they did an actual show like this, with the major characters from each episode getting together and discussing the episodes as they come out. It was really cool getting a look at what the actors are thinking and feeling about their characters and the show as a whole.

    Oh my god, thank you Arryn! As someone who is so opposed to violence, between people, Blake slapping Sun was really uncharacteristic of her. It's like Miles and Kerry forgot what her character is all about. Like she holds up the Peaceful White Fang flag at the end but has no issue slapping Sun? Yeah, it didn't sit right with me either.


    There were a few bits about Volume 4 which were a bit off but there were also some really amazing parts too - most of which were mentioned in this Still Open. The four of you do such amazing jobs and I can only hear the characters as the characters now and not 'oh hey, that's Barbara's voice and oh that's Kara.'


    Really excited for Volume 5 and RWBY Chibi to come back again in the summer. :D

      Blake is a victim of abuse, if we can derive anything from her relationship with Adam. She's also under a lot of stress, and probably struggling with some ptsd, which can cause a lot of issues. I hope in the next few volumes we'll see Blake realize how she hurt sun and go through some personal examination.

    • DrBatmanMD FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      It did feel somewhat out of character but I do think Blake's feelings had to come to a head somewhere. Remember, good intentions or not Sun essentially stalked her for months (read: he followed her without her knowledge or consent for the entire time skip said to be at least 6 months) and was now eavesdropping on her conversations. To the average person this would be massively distressing but to Blake, who as far as we can tell has come out of an abusive and controlling relationship with Adam, she has every right to feel violated by this. 


      Was her hitting him what I'd expect her to do, not really, I think her to telling him to leave would have made more sense as distancing herself seems to be her default defensive mechanism (though that is just my interpretation of her character), and she now has her parents for support. But that might have derailed the plot somewhat so I suppose doing something that seems so out of character was an efficient was of showing how much The Fall of Beacon and it's aftermath had affected her.

    • UntilNexTime FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That's very true DrBatmanMD. Sun followed her for 6-8 months and then eavesdropped on a very personal conversation so it's really understandable that Blake would be mad. Plus Blake's an extremely private person so to find out a friend has been doing that is like a...well slap in the face. On one side I can see the humor to it but on the other side it, it doesn't suit Blake to do that kind of slapstick comedy. 


      And same Orionex, I would like to see Blake do that too. :)

    • Dlar FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I saw that scene as her slapping herself just as much as him.  It was a boiling over point of a lot of the things that happened since the show started.  Blake has it in her mind that she's better off alone but Sun won't leave.  The conversation they had about her making that choice for her friends instead of letting them decide to stay with her or not was on point for this.  She slapped him because she cares, because it hurts to see him pushing to stay, because she wants him to stay but can't let him.  The slap was totally in character for that moment.
