THEY’RE DOING AN X-RAY AND VAV SHOW?!!!?
Thoughts on the new RWBY episode
Jaune may end up being the good guys’ ace in the hole.
Clearly Cinder’s gathering information on the Beacon students, though like most of her game, her goals in doing this are really unclear. She talks about taking away their power, and that probably means somehow rendering their semblances useless by countering them, or nullifying them completely. I’m not sure if this world has a way to remove semblances, but there you go.
Another possibility is that she’s trying to recruit students to their side, but I’m not completely sure. I noticed Cinder was putting Pyrrha’s power into awfully flowery terms, and the “list” suggests recruitment in some way. Not sure how they’d plan to do this if that is their intention, but then again I have no idea what Cinder’s trying to do in the first place.
In any case, she’s getting Emerald and Mercury to learn everyone’s semblances. Jaune doesn’t know what his is yet, so there’s no way for them to find out and take an interest in him, or find a way to counter it, or whatever they’re planning on doing with this information. He’s the classic underdog, perfect for slipping under the trio’s radar. Since Forever Fall Part 2 last season, I expect he might develop a habit of catching arrogant antagonists by surprise.
Also if he doesn’t end up eating his words about wearing a dress if Pyrrha doesn’t get a date, I will be very surprised.
