RWBY Season 3 – Episode 8 and 9
Okay, running late for this week (Again) so I thought I’d cover last week’s episode on top of this one.
This episode starts with Yang arguing her defense against what happened, but because Emerald’s Sembalance is OP, everything thinks she just hallucinated the entire thing. Her friends are quick to back her, though Blake has reservations considering she believes Adam went down the same route (how these two things are related eludes me) and then learn more about her mother from her uncle, who invites her to help chase her down. Pyhrra, in the meanwhile, is stressed over the situation with the Fall Maiden’s power and Jaune tries to cheer her up. The two get close, then things get bad and she loses control over her power and runs off. Ruby begins looking into what happened to her sister after Velvet mentions Coco thought she saw something as well and sees Emerald and Mercury, who were supposed to have left, before the match between
So this episode was most set-up and exploring the fallout of the last chapter. We learned about how Raven is perceived from the others and see why Arkos was slowly forming… now for it all to go to hell….
Episode gets a 4 out of 5, because I’m an action-junkie and it was distinctly lacking there.
The episode begins with Penny and Pyhrra’s match announced while Ozpin watches on. Ruby tries to get past Mercury in order to stop the match, but the asshole stops her while the two fight. It’s a good match, with Penny actually putting up a decent fight until Emerald tricks her into making her attack seem more deadly and Pyhrra ends up cutting her in half. The Grimm promptly go rushing towards the town as Cinder stops the broadcast from being cut and then proceeds to give a “Reason You Suck Speech” about the different governments, stating her own had fallen. It starts going bad then as every Grimm attacks and Atlas’ ships are getting wrecked because Neo slaughtered an entire crew and freed Roman. And, to top it off, the White Fang show up with more Grimm.
Okay, review time.
Darkest hour folks. Penny’s gone, Atlas is humiliated, the White Fang are attacking, and all it took was a few people placed in the right places. Credit where its due, Cinder knows what the hell she’s doing. But screw Emerald! She’s caused more problems in the last three episodes than anyone else! She’s shamed Yang and Pyhrra! If she makes it out of this season in one piece, I swear….
Oh, episode gets 5 out of 5. Watch it.
