The video picks up with Jaune getting Ruby’s call that didn’t go through only for the team to change course to head to the city when the sirens go off while Cinder mentions the plan was too early. RWBY is surrounded on all sides by Grimm and basically decide to cut loose like they’re in a FPS until Jaune and his team get there, with Jaune basically lucking into his first win when Sun and Neptune and… well, everyone else arrives.
Cinder has Emerald and Mercury maintain their cover by joining in before Team CVFY shows up and Coco basically takes the show as the ultimate badass. Then we get Oobleck, Port, and Glynda putting things back into place and wrapping up as Roman finally gets caught (and doesn’t give a damn because he knows he’s getting away). Afterwards Team RWBY reflects on everything and Ozpin basically gets talked down to by his bosses because Ironwood is a sellout who thinks he brought it onto himself before having a little talk with Roman, who only laughs.
Yet, somehow, Cinder calls it a successful day as Adam shows up and credits roll. Afterwards Yang meets the woman in the mask to see she looks like her with black hair. I’m guessing her mother.
I’m conflicted. On the one hand it showed Team CFVY’s moves, especially Coco’s, but it suddenly made what was their darkest hour look like nothing special. I was expecting death and them pulling a win from what looked to be the jaws of defeat. Not eight minutes of a one-sided slaughter. Even the first season finale was more intense.
I must painfully give it a 3 out of 5.
