RWBY Season 3 – Episode 2
The Match starts and once again we see that Pyrrha is in top form as she manages to fend off her attacker while the rest don’t fair as well with a sniper in the trees. Ren gets shocked by a cattle prod (which is easily the most surprising weapon in the series from being so bland, if practical) and when the guy tries to do the same to Nora he learns that her Semblance lets her absorb and use electricity so he was screwed.
Jaune then sent her to the mountain to do a Thor impression while Ren distracted the Sniper and Pyrrha blocked a shot meant for her before she pretty much destroyed the section of the forest the sniper was in and then came down to knock the rest back. Unfortunately, because they didn’t agree on a team attack name they get bogged down by the conversation until Jaune just has Nora hit them with her hammer and wreck all of them at once.
We then cut to Qrow getting sloshed and jaded before we get an all-girl team against Sun’s all-guy team. Neptune’s flirting gets Weiss angry and then he retreats to the enemy side because he’s afraid of the water. The fight starts and one of their teammates gets immediately thrown out of the ring by a tornado before Sun puts that bow staff to good use and take one of team Indigo down.
Then the pirate-looking dude not only swashbuckles on top of a mast but has a hookshot in his gun that he uses to rope the girl he knocked down and use her as a counterbalance. Then he gets hit in the nuts and goes down, so Sun tells Neptune to stop being useless. Neptune electrocutes the water they were standing in and Qrow leaves as someone important to Weiss arrives, probably her sister.
So, Team JNPR has improved but they’ve still got kinks they’re working out, Pyrrha is still MVP, and Nora is the Mighty Thor. Team SSSN is basically all fun and huge dorks, though the fact that someone named Neptune is afraid of the water is just hilarious and sad at the same time.
