    • Welp, Emerald is toast.

        Loading editor
    • Emerald is now really beggining to realize what she put herself in by leaving her streets to serve Cinder and that once you began to serve Salem, whenever it's intentionnal or not, you serve her to the death.

    • What I want to know is where JNR go, and who the new woman is.

      Also looks like Oz/Oscar got on the bad side of the girls.

        Loading editor
    • Who tf is that old lady

    • Finally. Something to truly build hype. Let's start with the best shots I found:

      RubyV6-8D

      :D

      TyrianAhegao
      Ok, now, moving on from Ruby's new :D and Tyrian's.....ahegao face....

      1) Why is Weiss the only one who got anything new to her outfit? First stockings and now a red scarf. No one else bothered to add anything new to theirs. How, and why? Weiss doesn't even have money, she ran away from Jacques, what cash will she have?

      2) Speaking of Weiss: Red scarf. Just like good old Santa- I mean, Nicholas Schnee.

      3) How come Blake and Ruby aren't even flinching when it's so cold? Especially on top of the train. Was Rin's prediction true? The writers will just throw out a casual "Aura protects against cold" excuse for arbitrary convenience?

      Of course, it wouldn't be out of nowhere, and if they really do it it wouldn't be anything worth complaining about beyond the fact that it means they didn't bother to give the girls new outfits (sans Weiss, because).

      4) That scene with Ozcar and the girls, it's my favorite in the entire trailer from how interesting it is. Weiss is mad and Yang is ready to beat him up, which is consistent with V5 considering Yang almost called him a monster for giving Qrow and Raven the power to turn into birds at will with no real consequences.

      Blake though, she's ready to draw out her weapon as if she was looking at a terrorist. Weiss and Yang at worst show disdain, not something like "try anything and I'll murder you" like she was doing.

      Now I don't mind that they hate Ozpin - so long as they have a good reason for it this time and not merely "you gave my mother and uncle the power to turn into birds without any issues?! You bastard!" - but, they do remember that Oscar is a freaking kid, younger than Ruby, right?

      Is this what Team RWBY (well, WBY) has become? Mistrustful "heroines" willing to kill a child, or at least abandon him in the middle of nowhere? And all while taking the Relic with them? That doesn't sound very heroic to me.

        Loading editor
    • I really, really doubt they are going to kill or abandon Oscar, but I think they are distrusting of Oz at least which they have every right to be, and I think it is all due to the relic.

      Maybe...maybe Oz is trying to take over Oscar but Oscar doesn’t want to go.

      You seem to be jumping the gun...incredibly hard.

      And you’re right it isn’t really worth complaining about if aura keeps you warm turns out to be true...but Rin sure as fuck will.

      Also thank you! I had the same thought about the Red scarf, it being a connection to her grandfather that is.

        Loading editor
    • I have two questions.

      1: Why was Oscar getting down on all fours, and why were the girls just lookin’ at him?

      2: Why did he shout “NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!”?

      1) Yeah, no. The pose Oscar's doing on the ground would be a small thing on it's own. The girls (sans Ruby) giving hateful looks at him would be another, sensible thing that would merely say "they don't trust Ozpin".

      But then there's Blake who is not only giving him a look that is more than merely "disdain", but she is also a few centimeters away from pulling out her sword. That changes everything.

      2) It's honestly one of the things that would make "more sense". Cheap, but not quite nonsensical. Aura already prevented Weiss's face from becoming a slimy mush after being hit face-first by the lava geyser.

      3) Also, is it just me or did it have Kuroyuri's symbol?

      1. Ruby/RWBY is/are likely about to use the Relic of Knowledge to get some answers and Ozpin doesn't want them to so he forcefully takes over Oscar's body to try and stop her/them.

      2. Ozpin fails to do so and all he can do is scream "NOOOOOOOO!!!!!" as she/they use the Relic of Knowledge and learn the truth of everything, including Ozpin's dark past.



      This is what I think is happening at that moment...

    • If something "bad" about Ozpin is actually revealed (not necesarily that scene), I just want it to be something truly bad and despicable worth getting angry for.

      Not "you gave them the power to turn into birds and back at will without any repercusions? You monster!". Seriously, what the hell were Miles and Kerry thinking when they wrote that scene.

      um, nothing ?

      edit. no offense meant, people crap so much on them i thought why not join in see what its about.

    • Here's my thoughts:

      Opening Narration

      This is very obviously Salem talking to Emerald about the ground rules under which she will accept her into her service. Salem understands humanity well enough to know that Emerald cannot divorce herself from her feelings but that, the very moment they distract Emerald from her first priority - doing Salem's will - Salem will make her wish she died with Cinder.

      I suspect that Tyrian is going to ram that lesson home and remind Emerald the degree to which she is vulnerable and in danger around Salem's cabal without Cinder to protect her.

      The Floating Man

      I'm guessing that Volume 6 will ram home the degree to which The Wizard is Remnant's equivalent of the Avatar of the Spirits. He's lived life after life and filled many different roles. Sometimes, he's been venerated, maybe even worshipped as demi-divine (which may be close to the truth, if he is the Light Brother's son).

      The Floating Man is a previous incarnation of The Wizard; I suspect that he will turn out to be the one prior to Ozpin, making him the Wizard at the time of the Great War.

      The Old Woman

      The minute I saw her, I immediately thought: "Yep! Maz Kanata expy!" She's going to fill the same role as Maz did in The Force Awakens too: The Wise Old Sage who will be teaching the youngsters little bits of truth and reminding the older characters of some old and still-painful mistakes and the consequences of these to the present day.

      I suspect that The Old Woman is going to be the widow of The Floating Man and thus knows Ozpin and Oscar on a certain uncomfortable level. I suspect that she's along for the ride because no-one outside of the group knows as much about the defences on the Relics as she does and Ozcar really doesn't want her left around for Salem's cabal to pick up and interrogate.

      The Parting of the Ways

      I agree with other posters on the Trailer's talk thread that RWBYOQ and JNR will be separated in some way during the Train-top Fight.

      I suspect that JNR will be stuck in Anima whilst RWBYOQ will head on by foot to Solitas (looking to cross the ocean by way of a fishing boat or something from a northern Mistrali village). JNR will encounter the female gang-boss, called The Madam by some posters (who I think will be Mistral's answer to Roman Torchwick but closer in moral alignment to Junior). In order to be smuggled to Solitas, JNR will need to do a job for her or solve some mystery that has long plagued her, all without sacrificing their moral and ethical standards.

      Oscar's Despair

      I think that RWBYOQ will grow closer to the old lady who, although grumpy, will become their mischievious old surrogate grandma. That will make it all the harder when Salem's forces strike at mid-season and either kill or capture her. That will be what sets Oscar off. In the end, despite all of Ozpin's help and their preparations, he had failed her, just as he has failed so very many women (and possibly men too) that he has loved over the centuries.

      This may create an interesting subplot to any Rosegarden or other Oscar-centired ship. He may be wary of letting anyone he feels affection for get too close to him because he's afraid of losing them too.

      The Relic of Knowledge

      I thnk that Qrow will be very surprised when Ozcar insists that Ruby carry the Relic of Knowledge. However, when it resizes itself to fit on her belt, it becomes very apparent that she is indeed its rightful Bearer. I wonder if being around the relic will affect Ruby, vastly increasing her knowledge and thus also improving her ability to create tactics and strategies. Yang, especially, will be very disturbed if the ancient magic of the Relic starts changing her baby sister too dramatically.

      What of the scene where a frightened Ruby is holding the Relic protectively whilst Yang, Weiss and Blake are about to mess up Oscar badly? I'm wonderiing if, like a certain Ring, only certain ones, destined Bearers, can hold the Relics without being corrupted by its power. Oscar is still young enough that he is haivng a hard time resisting the Relic's Call and tries to snatch it from Ruby, only to get a face-full of Yang's prosthetic fist and Weiss and Blake ready to make jerky of him.

      Even hurting and with Ruby quite terrified of his savage need for the Relic, Oscar can't stop begging for just one more touch.

      So you think Oscar will turn into RWBY's version of Gollum?

      Also, I'd actually be very interested to see Ruby become cold and calculating to the point of putting logic before emotion and reasoning. Also, the thought of her using big complicated words and talking like a robot would be funny to me. (In a gallows humor sort of way...)

      More like Bilbo, I think: It's a bad idea to let him near the Relic for some time but his essentially good heart means that he can get on top of it after a while.

      FWIW, I think that RT wouldn't be able to resist making Ruby a more 'Wheatley' type of vast mind: Say something profound in Ancient Vacuoean and then murmur: "... And I have no idea what that meant other than it's a good idea."

      What I meant though is that Ruby would come up with brilliant tactical ideas and have no idea what made her think of it before Oz remarking about it 'first being tried successfully about 1000 years ago but was lost to the ages'.

      We got a good batch of theories here.

    • Good theories and analysis in this thread. Nothing to add on that front.

      Think my only hope for the volume based on what we saw in the trailer is that we don't go jumping between JN_R and RWBY/Ozcarpin/Qrow too much and stick to a single narrative thread. Last two volumes had way too many split narratives and I don't want to be constantly checking in with what JN_R is doing. They're far less important than the Relic and its journey with its guardians and while its nice to see them every so often, it's just not necessary. There are so many characters to keep track of, letting JN_R's story rest is a good idea.

        Loading editor
    • And miss out on what JNR has been up too all that time? No thanks.

        Loading editor
    • Actually, I think that if JNR are just escorting survivors to nearby help it would be the perfect time to let them fall to the wayside a bit. Watching a bunch of randoms trudging through snow and panicking about Grimm isn't really my idea of a good time - maybe show one instance of JNR working together to protect people but other then that let us just assume they're getting them to safety.

      At the end, when RWBYQO and JNR are in places with signal, they can call and let us know 'we arrived, we lost a few people, we'll meet you in Atlas' or whatever.

        Loading editor
    • That’s a good alternative.

        Loading editor
    • I'd like to see about 2 JNR scene's(well, segues really, as the first I'd like to skirt over approximately what they've been doing since separating, while the second would be a personal mission) throughout the volume, perhaps one an episode long; a fight and Renora moment with Jaune reflecting, and a scene showing them meet Pyrrha's family(if RWBY don't meet up beforehand).

      1) While it's very possible Emerald is getting that speech from Salem, it's pretty much a given that it would be more suited to Cinder for what she wrought in her arrogance.  And that makes me wonder if Cinder has left her faction high and dry, letting them take the fall for her plotting.  Which would also explain Salem's even more aggravated mood, her "child" has ran away and left her playmates behind.  Oh I wouldn't want to be in Cinder' shoes when Salem finds her, it won't be pretty, not at all.

      2) It definitely could be a previous incarnation of Ozpin, and that whole scene reminded me of the lyrics in "Sacrifice":

      "Show them gods and deities,
      Blind and keep the people on their knees."

      Seems pretty self-explanatory to me.  Could we be seeing the man behind the curtain at long last?  We'll find out in due time, I'm sure.

      3) I've heard plenty of theories about the Old Woman.  I had a crazy theory that she's Raven's mother, who spends the season nettling Yang over how much she acts like Raven, much to the firecracker's discontent.  But, that's probably not even remotely true, and I'll be shocked if it is.

      Though the latest one I've hard is she's actually a spy for Atlas, and she'll be the one who helps them enter the insular kingdom.  Those goggles she wears might not be just for sight, it could be advanced spy tech, we'll see I guess.

      4) Somehow I doubt that's any of Team JNPR with the Madam and her underlings.  My bet is it's actually Cinder, looking for any info on where a certain silver-eyed girl has vanished. Along with a notorious bandit leader.  Seems to me she's going AWOL and doing her own things, much like Adam.  Though she can't hide from Salem for long, no sirree.

      As for Team JNPR, they probably got separated after the trainwreck and are helping the survivors.  Getting them to safety will clearly come first, after that can they seek to reconnect with Team RWBY.

      5) I'd say he'll be despairing more over how much trouble Ozpin is getting him into, he's already run away from his only family and going to who knows where to do who knows what, and who knows if he'll even come back alive once it's all over.

      6) Remember what happened a scene before, Oscar collapsed on the ground before reaching out to Ruby.  That happens when Ozpin relinquishes control for one reason for another, and I'm betting it's after Ozpin explained why he had to cause the trainwreck ie "I did what I had to do," and then forced Oscar into the forefront so he wouldn't have to deal with their ire himself.  So for all Team RWBY knows, Team JNPR and countless innocents are dead, all because Ozpin deemed it necessary to protect the Relic at all costs.  And I daresay Oscar is more pleading with Ruby to help him and believe in him, since she's the one he trusts the most.

    • That 6th theory might actually be plausible.


      Edit: But a massive no for the Raven’s mom theory. Just a big fat no.

      Not out of racism, (heck, I myself am black) but because their skin colors/races are different, so it wouldn’t make sense.

      Agreed, although I would add that Raven and Qrow were adopted by the tribe after being Orphan's... so it isn't her mom, if it was an adoptive parent they would still be with the tribe... It could be Weiss's Abuela/great Aunt though(still doubtful, but at least the scarf would make sense).

    • Hah, I really didn't think it was true, I merely put it out just to suggest another possibility instead of simply agreeing to the "She's a SEW" or "She's the Winter Maiden" theories.  But we'll find out either way in November, or sometime during the Volume, can't wait. ^_^
