Meanwhile, a flashback shows Weiss Schnee and Yang Xiao Long's relationship with Blake becomes strained after Blake accidentally tells them her secret. Ruby Rose suggest finding Blake, but Weiss and Yang disagree, since they have their own reasons why they do not want to search for her. Weiss does not need to know Blake's past because the fact that she is a Faunus and a member of the White Fang is enough to explain everything about her. On the other hand, Yang states that the reason why she did not pursue Blake is because she is afraid that if she learns the truth about her, she will feel that they cannot go back to the way they used to be.
