    I really like how Blake's parents vibe is opininos on Black's ships. Mother likes BlackSun ship. Father dislikes Sun. I get the feeling when Yang meets them and hears the Sun just followed Blake like a stalker, she'll punch him through a wall and say "She's my partner." Father will be like "I LIKE her." and the mother won't.

    Vernals tattoo is a dead give away that she is the spring maiden, spring flowers and a phoenix (which is the symbol for rebirth/renewal). Other than that I think Ozpins semblance does transfer with every reincarnation as a semblance is nothing more than an tangible projection of their aura and aura is tied to their soul. The coincidence that Salem is just is old as Ozpin is also kinda ironic cause Ozpin/Oscar alludes to the wizard of OZ and Salem could be the wicked witch of the west counterpart which is funny cause she is the leader of team WTCH.

      Looking back on what we saw of him fighting in Vol. 3 it certainly looked like a combination of semblances to me.

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

      From what I remember of vol 3 he put out his aura as a spherical shield, the rest was just super speed attacks using his cane as a rapier. From the RWBY Wiki "Skilled users of Aura can create their own barriers or even increase their own abilities in some way".

    Did not know about Vernal's name was related to Spring. Though I guessed she was the Spring Maiden, when she faces Cinder in the Opening like there have some sort of connection.

    We know from Ozpin and Ghira that the timelines aren't concurrent right now, so I'm theorising that Adam has captured Blake, Sun and Kahli in the meantime, brought them to the Mistral hideout and executed Ghira.

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

      2 weeks ago

      We don't necessarily know that the timelines aren't concurrent, Ghira's 2 month timeline was based on the info from the scroll while Ozpin's 1 month guess was going on the assumption that Adam would attack while the school was empty.  I could definitely see Adam attacking when school is back in session just to increase the casualties.  Also at this point they can't be certain that Leo is going to betray them, they are working on the assumption that the school will be attacked to steal the relic (when the relic is unguarded) when in reality Salem plans to have Leo lead the maiden to the relic and has said that Haven will be destroyed after she has what she needs. With 2 maidens and a relic it probably won't matter that much if the school is in session.  There is also the possibility that Adam purposely made his plans for later than when he actually will attack so that if they are leaked his enemies will still be caught off guard, similar to what Kuvira did in Legend of Korra.

      This is Adam we're talking about, why would he only execute Ghira? He's made it clear he wants to make Blake suffer after all.

    It's kind of hilarious to know we've been listening to meows and farts this whole time. Such a cute little quirk.


    I still don't know how I feel about Yang...I want her to fight and be the amazing brawler she was but it's plain to see she's not okay :( but at least it's good they haven't just glossed over her feelings and that she wanted to get back out there despite not being entirely ready. It's more interesting that way.

    I mean, I always just assumed Salem was thousands of years old. I would've been genuinely shocked—my whole world turned upside down—if she wasn't ridiculously ancient. She creates Grimm, for pity's sake; if she's not one herself.

    When did she upgrade her arm???

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

      2 weeks ago

      Perhaps she didn't modify it and it was made that way on purpose. Taiyang did say, in V4C3, that it was made for "you and you only". So, given how Ironwood knows about her fighting style, the feature could have been incorporated in the design since the arm was being custom made for her by one of Atlas' top scientists.

      It has to have been made that way. By assumption that it's Atlas tech, Yang wouldn't know how it works and it would be very hard to modify.

      I kinda see Weiss and Yang running into each other on accident but looks like sunset-ish with Yang and pure night with Weiss also they could be slightly different camps to Ravens so its a stretch.

    All these unanswered questions that keep flashing up on screen is kind of irritating imo. Can Chad just cue the department to pop up the next question, rather than them showing one that may or may not actually get answered? Especially when he then has to wait for a question to show up when there was just one on screen a moment before. I know this was sort of addressed, but I'm not quite sure the point if they aren't getting any recognition.

      Hey! First, thanks for watching. We are still trying to perfect when to show comments and tweets and how many to show. It's a lil more complicated than it may seem due to technical reasons, but we just don't have enough time to read every comment/question on air. We are currently airing on the side of showing more than we can read on air so our viewers can see what other questions are out there in the hope that it will encourage more dialogue. The other option is to only show like 5 or 6 questions (the ones the hosts read on camera), try to answer them, and show nothing else. Would you prefer that you think? As Erimgard13 noticed below, our goal isn't to answer every question - we don't know the answers in a lot of cases - but to show what the discussion about the show is like. Many thanks. 

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

      2 weeks ago

      Well, assuming the hosts don't read the questions beforehand, is there at least a way to narrow them down or show them at a point where it would be...I guess less distracting to the viewers? I've seen a few questions pop up that I am also interested in that never get responded to.

      I have an entire friend group based around RWBY, and I'm very glad to see the hard work everyone's put in to make this podcast happen (and thanks for your responses, Todd and Erim), but I'd personally prefer if you wanted to highlight bonus questions to either put them in towards the end of the episode in a sidebar (and say "Hey discuss these in the comments below!" even as tacky as that may sound) or just not have them in the episode at all and instead just RT them on Twitter for people to respond to if that's the angle you're going for.

      I'd rather have more pressing or controversial topics answered by the cast than more basic, subjective ones. In my opinion, the crew should narrow the questions down to those most important (as deemed by who is beyond me but), and have Yssa or Chad cue the operators either by a gesture or a button of some sort they could subtly use to bring up the next question and eliminate that awkward, few second pause seen a few times in this episode. Though it might take some getting used to, I think it'd benefit the show in the long run.

      That's just my spiel; thanks for reading and have a good one. Hyped for Chapter 4!
