Mood whiplash ahoy!
The episode begins with Glenda and Ozpin, watching as a fleet lands on their doorstep and General Ironwood appears. Glenda doesn’t like him, that much is obvious, and she steps outside. He and Ozpin make better talk, but Ozpin makes it clear he doesn’t like the fleet outside when they’re in a time of peace and if there’s any problems they will handle things tactfully. The general asks if he thinks his kids can win a war, but Ozpin says he hopes they never have to.
In the Library we see our two teams doing anything but studying, with Team RWBY playing a table top game. Yang pretty much dominates both Ruby and Weiss, but Blake doesn’t feel like playing as Sun arrives with his friend from the last time, Neptune…. who immediately flirts with Weiss.
Blake leaves out and curls up in her room, flashing back to what happened after the incident with the White Fang. Ozpin questions her on the incident, subtly making it clear that he knows she was once a member of them. Weiss comes in and asks her what’s wrong, she explains that things are getting worse and the fact that nothing is being done. Weiss reasons they aren’t ready, but Blake can’t take that so Ruby takes a vote and they all agree, but then she remembers she left her board game in the Library.
Ruby then crashes into Cinder, Emerald, and Mercury and welcomes them to Beacon as it ends. I’m still conflicted as to how Cinder can pass as a student, but okay then.
It wasn’t a bad episode, but it could have been better. Still, it’s hard to top last episode.
4 out of 5.
