    The Qrow vs. Winter fight is still one of my all time favorites. I can't get over how cunning Qrow is in this episode... also I may have a girl crush on Winter BUT THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT.

    I have to say that Ruby is really well written. She's one of the few awkward/cringy characters that I actually adore.

    Winter: "He was drunk!" 

    Glynda: "He's always drunk!" 

    Qrow: drinking

     LOL

    And that Swag look Qrow, Glynda, and Ozpin gives at the elevator. Priceless! XD

    Oh man, there is so much more to catch when you watch this episode after you've seen the rest of Season 3. 


    Most notably, I am pretty sure that Qrow's semblance gives him the ability to see through the eyes of crows, not to transform into a crow. There is a crow watching his fight with Winter, and when it takes off from a post and circles around the area Qrow's balance (or at least the way he held his head) changed and his eyes no longer looked directly at Winter. The comment she made about "I'm standing right in front of you" held a double meaning, though I can't tell if Winter intended it. She overtly meant that he was talking about her like she wasn't there, but once she said that he reoriented himself and his eyes looked at her straight on once again. 


    It's possible that this was all just him being drunk, but considering most of the times we see a crow it is in the city, it seems weird for a grown man who is a resident of Vale to run around in the city transformed as a crow.


    Also, how the **** is he supposed to drink from his flask while in bird form? I think he'd avoid the transformation unless absolutely necessarily for that reason alone. 


    One of the other things is "the things she makes ARE fear." The context suggests he was referring to Salem. I.e. Salem makes Grimm - though that does not necessarily mean she is the original source of all Grimm. But Season 4's first several episodes certainly fit with the idea that she can personally create or cause Grimm to come into existence.

      Sorry pal but you have this all wrong 

    • rainyaesthetic

      2 months ago

      I know you made this comment like a year ago but honestly this wasn't too far from the truth (the Salem thing with grimm is correct by now). I think that the crow at the beginning of the fight is Raven, as we know that she has a portal to Qrow AND can turn into a crow. But regardless good theorizing for the time of writing this comment! I doubt I would've thought this far into it. XD

    From the way they kept talking about him, I assumed Qrow was an older guy. But he's pretty young. That fight with Winter was dope but the whole time I kept thinking, Oh, Glyndal is gonna be ticked when she sees all the damage they did.


    Qrow's wink was just good trolling. Hehe.


    Also, love the bits of maturity showing through in the writing. When Ironwood talks about how his fleet makes people feel safe and Ozpin points out that such a show of force makes people wonder just what on earth could be threatening them to require so much. Real world application. I look at countries showing off their guns (literally) and I don't feel safer. I said once, 'Power by might is power that begs for use.' In many ways it's a challenge, it doesn't mean righteousness or good, it simply says, Come at me. And that invites trouble. Glad to see that foreboding theme in RWBY. I digress...


    Great episode.


    Edit: Only a few days later did I remember that last quote from Qrow was Monty Oum's favorite saying. :( Rest in Peace

      to be fair. i assume her sister thinks her better than any of the other students flat out. but that fight was between 2 full-fledged hunt(er/ess's) that have bounds more skill than simple first year academy students.

    Don't know if anyone else has noticed this but if you look when ironwood goes to pick his scroll back up the queen(I think it's a queen) glitches on for a second, and then cinders big scroll thing has a picture of ironwoods scroll and his picture so I think that's how she got control of SPOILERS

    So does anyone have any theories on who the the girl in the picture is? The fourth one on the left side half hiding her face with the cloak.


    And, I know I've said it before, but WHYYYYY couldn't they have made Qrow their Dad's brother? It makes me sad that Qrow and Ruby aren't really related. :'(

    • Nardgo

      Its Summer Rose assuming the picture you are referring to is the one in the opening credits. The 4 people in the picture are the 4 members of Team STRQ (Summer Rose, Taiyang Xiao Long, Raven Branwen, and Qrow Branwen.)


      Also ya, it's kind of weird how Qrow and Ruby are way more similar than Qrow and Yang, but he not related to Ruby by blood.

      Well Qrow is her uncle and helped train her- a lot seemingly. So I can see why she takes after him. Most of us guess Yang takes after Tai. I think them not being blood related (Ruby and Qrow) is fine. It seems they are all pretty close and tight knit despite the moms being M.I.A.

  • Rvb_and_RWBY_ftw

    Ok so I think one thing we can all conclude is crow's "a bit of a badass", I mean look, he was obviously joking around with winter, playing if you will, I'm sure if he actually tried, Winter wouldn't have stood a chance.

    Also if someone could clear this up for me, at the beginning of season 1 when Ruby meets Ozpin he says " there's just one other scythe wielder if seen like that" , Ruby confirms that it was crow who thought her but in the fight scene it really doesn't look like a scythe in his hands

    • Maple6029 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Because it's not in scythe form... You can see near the end of the Qrow and Winter fight that it was about to transform into a scythe. But then Ironwood came.

    Anyone else notice a chess piece pop up on ironwoods scroll for a moment, which also popped up on cinders scroll. then when shes looking around, ironwoods picture is in the top corner. This builds on my impression of ironwood from the end of season 2- ironwood is not the ally he appears to be.

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

      2 years ago

      It's More likely to be the new access point she is talking about. The "Queen Virus" was loaded into Beacon academy CCT; so, it would stand to reason that Beacon is compromised. When Ironwood put his scroll on Ozpin's desk, the Virus transferred into the scroll, and notified Cinder that Ironwwod's scroll is a new access point (why his picture is there). Later Episode 5, we see Cinder accessing data that only Ironwood or those close to him would have access to. So, If Ironwood was corrupt, she wouldn't have to steal the data, and she would already have it. And if Ironwood's Scroll was the source of the Virus, she would have been able to steal the data sooner. If anything this scene proves Ironwood's inocence and Ozpin's obliviousness to the "Queen Virus" and its far reaching effects.
