Now that we're through Volume 5 with a win for the good guys, it's time for us to speculate on what might happen for Volume 6. We know we'll be going to Atlas, which means it'll be time for Weiss to shine (this season was pretty much all Yang and Blake).
Here are a few things I speculate could happen, but take appropriate NaCl.
- Jacques Schnee is going to end up being the arc villain, perhaps forming an alliance with Salem just to get the SDC back in business. Or at the very least, he learns about the Relic in Atlas and tries to take it for himself.
- Winter will return and there will be plenty of belligerent sexual tension between her and Qrow.
- Emerald will attempt to leave Salem's faction now that Cinder is dead. She was already visibly horrified at the things Salem has at her disposal, but only stuck around because of Cinder.
- Weiss will confront dear daddy in a one-on-one duel, because simple words aren't gonna get through Jacques' thick skull.
- Whitley will end up royally screwing things up for everyone just for his own agenda, even pulling one over on his dad. (All just so we hate the little shithead even more.)
- The Winter Maiden will have some sort of connection to the Schnee family. (It'd honestly be awesome and totally punneriffic if Winter herself is actually the Maiden.)
- Neo will finally make a return somewhere. (We were told she'd be in V5, but she's nowhere to be found.)
Oh, and as a request to RoosterTeeth, can we have at least one hot-spring or hot-tub episode in Volume 6?
