A ninja in black…
The episode starts off at the party with Ozpin and the others, as well as Ironwood. Jaune and Ruby share a moment of being socially awkward until Ruby reveals Weiss is without a date and he tries to go ask her out, until he saw Pyrrha looking down and followed her to the balcony. Pyrrha couldn’t get a date, much to Jaune and my shock. She basically states she’s been placed on a pedestal so she’s seen as too unattainable and she wishes she came with a guy who was like him, who saw him for who he is.
Neptune comes out after she leaves and Jaune tears into him until he reveals he can’t dance. It does wonders for Jaune’s ego, but he ultimately tells Neptune to go tell Weiss if he really likes her. He sits by her and chat while Ruby and Yang watch as Jaune puts on a dress and dances with Pyhrra and Nora takes Lie onto the floor and they do a really good dance routine.
Team CRME, on the other hand, watches from above. Ruby, however, goes off to the balcony and sees Cinder dressed like a ninja. She decks a guard and the straight-up kicks the rest of their asses like no-one’s business. Ruby calls for her locker rocket and gets Crescent Rose when she sees the the knocked out guard and the fighting starts util General Ironwood arrives and Cinder vanishes back into the party to dance with Mercury as the episode ends.
I was expecting something drastic with all the foreshadowing, but time will tell. 4 out of 5!
Too much feels…
The episode has Ruby still in a slump over Blake not coming to the dance, but Yang assures her that she’ll be there. Sun and Neptune arrive then and ask about the dance, with Sun asking if Blake will be there. Dude has it bad for her. Yang, once again assures them that Blake will be there and proceeds to taunt her with a laser pointer in the library to get her attention.
We then go to a shirtless Lie Ren who gets dragged out by Jaune before he can get dressed. Jaune apparently really had it bad for Weiss, for some reason, and asks Lie for advice about girls since he’s apparently with Nora. The two deny it but, they’re not fooling anyone. Pyrrha arrives and tells him to tell her how he feels while being honest and he leaves to do so. You see, this is why Pyrrha can’t get him to notice she has feelings, she’s too nice to everyone. How’s he supposed to notice she like him? Nora agrees with me and tells her to practice what she preaches.
Meanwhile, with Yang and Blake, Yang tells Blake about how Ruby’s mother was killed and her father lost both her and Yang’s mother. Yang wanted to find her mother, who went missing, and then took Ruby with her to search for her. Note this was where Ruby was a toddler, so they were screwed if Qrow didn’t show up. Yang learned to take it slow after that, even though she still searches for her mother and tells Blake to slow down, not stop, and if she comes with her to the dance she’ll save her one.
Then we go to Jaune looking for Weiss, who is asking out Neptune out. You can see the exact moment his heart breaks in 10:02. He’ll get better I’m sure…
Anyway, night of the dance we have Ruby struggling to stand up in heels, Sun going with Blake, Blake dancing with Yang (yeah, Bumblebee-ship is going to go nuts), and Ozpin showing up to talk with Ruby about how moments like these are the memories you treasure. The video ends as Emerald and Mercury arrive.
Well, we learned more about Yang and Ruby so it answers much for me. Still can’t wait for next episode. 4 out of 5.

So much awesome…
After the week off for the Podcast, the main show returns and opens with the lovely Pyrrha Nikos in all her glory kicking the collective asses of Team CRDL. It was glorious, showing that Pyrrha is the stuff of legends and earned her last few tournament wins on sheer badassery. Don’t get me wrong, those guys showed they were rather decent at fighting too, but she completely wrecked them and Cardin got it worse than the rest with that finish.
Then Mercury decides to give it a go. He’s okay in that he managed to actually disarm her, but he quits after she starts getting into it and cites she’s a renown fighter, to her ire. Blake, on the other hand, has been neglecting sleep to in her hunt for everything going on and even reject Sun harshly for a date. The others want her to take a break, but she brushes them off.
Then we have Jaune, who tries asking Weiss out with a Serenade. It fails epically, considering that she has Neptune in mind. Then we skip to him sparring with Pyrrha. He still doesn’t know what his semblance is, but the bigger issue is that we see beneath the cracks in her armor in that her skill has isolated her and Jaune is a clueless moron and innocently insensitive.
As it ends we skip to Team CRME discussing her ability and she gets added to the list and that Cinder can apparently take her in a fight.
5 out of 5, and a perfect continuation of the last one!
