  • I'm sure that I speak for a great deal of RWBY fans when I say it would be incredible to see Team RWBY get back together again, and while I realize that such an event is more than likely (given the final scene featured in the new intro "The Triumph"), I don't want to set myself up for dissapointment, so I'll just keep an open mind. That said though, I have a theory I'd like to propose to anyone interested...

    Let's make the assumption that Team RWBY will eventually reunite in Volume 5. My prediction is that Team RWBY will reunite in two parts: first, in seperate events, Ruby and Blake will encounter each other while Yang finds Weiss; then, in some sort of scenario, they will all reunite back together (a scenario that likely has a lot more depth than the slipshod, simplistic sentence I just typed '-_- ). Obviously, the last scene in "Dread in the Air" will indicate why I paired Weiss with Yang. As for pairing Ruby and Blake, this was a bit more complex, and, honestly, I really don't know if it's gonna happen, but wanted to see what others thought anyway.

    There are two core reasons why I think Ruby and Blake will meet up. The first involves problems with group chemistry between Blake and Yang, and the second relates to where both characters are positioned in volume 5, both in context of location, and to the plot.

    ...

    Towards the end of the finale for volume 3, when Ruby asked about what happened to Blake, Yang angrily responded, that Blake ran. She didn't know why, and added bitterly that she didn't care. Did Yang really mean this? I'd like to think not. Granted, I'm not necessarily saying she is concerned about Blake's status, but rather, what happened to Yang's perception of their bond when Blake left her.

    Let's rewind a bit to beginning of the RWBY saga. Even before he assigned everyone to the four-person teams, Ozpin said that, after landing in the Emerald Forest, the students would become partners with the first person they made eye contact with; Ruby saw Weiss, and Yang saw Blake. Now, unlike the former pair, it didn't feel like the latter's relationship received much development or even attention until the middle of Volume 2, but when it did, it was very heartfelt. In "Burning the Candle," Yang told Blake about how she put herself and Ruby in danger during her search for her mother, and that she didn't want the obsession to control her, in order to convince Blake to take a rest obsesssing about the White Fang to the point of exhaustion (ironically, during volume 4, Blake initially wanted to forget about the White Fang, and currently, Raven is the only person Yang is looking for).

    I also think another moment showcasing their bond happened in "Destiny," when Yang asks Blake if she believes her claim about Mercury attacking her. The moment Blake says "I want to believe you," we immediately see tears in Yang's eyes (I think it was the first time we ever saw her cry). After making Yang earnestly swear she saw Mercury attack her, Blake smiles and thanks her (... so she believes her.... I think...). However, it felt to me that when Blake doubted her, she looked far more upset than when Ironwood had told her she'd been disqualified.

    Other than a brief call via scroll at the start of "Battle of Beacon", that was the last time (last meaning most recent, and definitely NOT final) we see the two of them speak to each other; the last time they SEE each other was when Yang selflessly rushed to Blake's aid against Adam Taurus, only to lose her right arm.

    ...

    I think it's fair to say the anger and bitterness Yang expressed regarding was created due to not knowing what had happened to her as well as remembering how Blake doubted her about Mercury (speaking of which, I'm betting since "Cinder's Team" is going to find Raven, it's likely will see a certain rematch very soon), compounded with the fact that Blake left her so abruptly; no "I'm sorry, but because I fear for your safety, I think you'd be safer if I left" or even a simple "good-bye."

    ....

    Soooo... with all of that reviewed, my first point, is that if Yang and Blake were to meet up with each other, I'm not sure it would work out. Sure, Sun had that talk with Blake about how her friends have the choice to defend Blake or not, but how the hell would he know if Yang really would live through getting her other arm cut off? If anything seeing Blake will bring back this bitterness. As for Ruby meeting Blake, my theory stems from Adam's recent coup for high-leader, and because Sun and the Belladonnas' are aware of Adam's plan to attack Haven, compliments of Ilia's scroll. Also, now that the Branwen Bandits have Weiss (I'm willing to bet that regardless of whether Jaques actually still cares about her or not, Raven and the tribe still think she's worth something), Yang is more likely to encounter her, instead of Blake.

    Obviously, I could be wrong, and, because Qrow has emphasized the importance of finding Raven to get the spring maiden, RNJR, Qrow and Oscar may end up meeting Weiss, and/or Yang instead, but, only time will tell... So, what do YOU think?

      I'm actually not taking the end of the opening sequence to mean that Team RWBY will meet up, since we saw them all standing together at the end of Volume 4's opening.

      And I'm not entirely sure whether or not Blake will meet up with anyone from Team RWBY this volume, since she seems intent on staying in Menagerie. When Ilia told her to leave, Blake even said "You're gonna have to make me."

      Meanwhile, it's looking like Ruby, Weiss, and Yang are all going to end up reuniting, thanks to Raven. Qrow and RNJR want to get the Spring Maiden from Raven, Yang wants to find Raven, and Weiss has been captured by Raven. Those three paths lead to that one spot. Blake's path is a mystery for now.

    • I'd have to agree with you on this one. If Raven has Weiss and either Yang or Ruby come for her, the reunion of Team RWBY is just around the corner. Who knows in what way they will reunite?

    • Chsishio: Sorry, it's a habit I'm still trying to break... And honestly, I think you're right about what volume 5 holds for Blake, now that I think about it. Still, I'm willing to bet that episode 5-3 will likely be a Blake episode, since, you know, we'd be going in order...

      A Fandom User: Thanks. Honestly, I hope it's not all at once, because that would feel to easy.

    • Yeah i expect RWY reunite around 6-7 depending on when the attack on Raven's camp will be. B may reunite at the end

    • We were directly told that Ruby will stay to protect the relic and train along with the rest of RNJR, OQ. 

      That means only CME, Y, W, Raven, and Spring will be available at the Bandit camp. I am also not 100% sold on the whole "Yang is looking for Raven now." She never clearly stated that she was looking for Raven, only that she knew she was in the area. 

      Even if Yang goes to the Bandits, she might just barely see Weiss or only meet up long enough to catch up but then be separated again.

      If Yang does go to the camp she will have completely different goals than Weiss. Weiss has to get to Mistral while Yang wants to visit Raven. If Raven doesn't go to Mistral (and why would she?) then we know for 100% certain that Yang and Weiss won't stay together.

    • In summary, Yang and Weiss will only meet up permenantly if all these things happen.

      1) Yang goes to the Bandit camp

      2) Yang knows where the Bandit camp is (which is something that the Ozluminati couldn't find for 15 years).

      3) Raven goes to mistral.

      4) Yang notices that Spring has Weiss' weapon (that would be pretty cool), or asks to see the prisoners, or sees Weiss while she escapes.

    • If Yang visits Raven, that doesn't mean she can't head to Mistral afterward, and that also doesn't mean that Weiss can't wait for her.

      Though, Team RWBY's timelines are all mixed up, so if Yang does go see Raven, we don't even know if her timeline is on the same schedule as Weiss'. After all, we now know that Blake's timeline is 1 month behind RNJR's - Ghira said Haven's classes start back up for the fall semester in 2 months, but Ozpin said Haven's classes start back up in 1 month.

    • Yang is most certainly headed there... Weiss is already there(the question is if these will line up), Blake's timeline is over a month before Ruby's... she has time to get there.  The real question is where the stories intersect...

      will Blakes first objective be the school, or something closer to Raven?

      will Ruby be there still?

      will Weiss be in the compound when Yang arrives?

      Will the villains attack before Qrow and RNJR?

      I'm starting to think that, given the 3 of them are all in Anima, while Blake is in Menagerie, it may end up turning into RWY+B... Whoops... ' 0_0

    • I feel like RWBY will become reuinted by either the end of V5 OR sometime in V6. I mean Ruby and the rest of RNJR are going to be going to the bandit camp to "save" Vernal who is clearly fine with where she is. Yang is hunting down Raven for multiple reasons that i don't feel like listing. And finally Weiss. Weiss has been captured by Raven and is guaranteed to be rescued by RNJR and Yang considering that they are all headed for the bandit camp. When, how and why Blake will go to Mistral is currently a mystery to everybody in the fandom. There's probably plenty of specualtion but still none of it is confirmed.

    • I think their aim is to take Vernal and put her in a position where she'll be more guarded against Salem's forces, rather than thinking that Vernal needs to be saved from Raven. But yeah, unless something changes at some point in Volume 5, there's no knowing when or why Blake will head to Mistral, so it seems so far that RWY will meet up because their paths converge on Raven's camp.

    • I think Blake will join up with her team when Haven is attacked. I mean think about it. They RWY and RNJR are already there at Haven and Blake's ultimate goal is to stop Adam. I think the attack on Haven is going to happen. Thats when Blake comes in. She'll be the one that comes to stop Adam and ends up finding the rest of her team there to her surprise.

      Blake's timeline is a month behind, she and her parents already made their intentions to protect Haven clear, so they will be there for that, there are however 2 reasons that Blake and friends will leave sooner, to Save Sienna(because they will not know of her death as Adam is the one sending that information) and possibly try convincing her to save Haven, so we can expect that they are very close to synced with RWY's timeline, because getting to haven under the current world conditions would take a week + most likely, and Ghira/Kali should be giving themselves a few days to convince Sienna/prep defenses.
