Martial LawEdit

V7 11 00174

Vine continues to help until they are suddenly called back to Atlas Academy under direct orders from Ironwood, where she assures RWBY that they shouldn't question Ironwood's orders. Team RWBY and the Ace Ops go to Ironwood's office, where he reveals that one of Salem's subordinates left a black queen chess piece on his desk. He begins panicking, questioning if everything that he and the others did was part of Salem's plan. Ironwood questions whether or not Team RWBY really is on his side and asks them how Robyn knew about the Amity Tower project. Yang confesses that she and Blake told her, leading to an argument. The argument becomes more and more heated, and suddenly, a Seer bursts out of Watts' bag, dies, and breaks open to release a smokey apparition of Salem.

Salem proclaims that Watts and Tyrian's mission was not to secure victory, but rather to set the stage for Salem herself. She then attempts to convince Ironwood to surrender but is soon distracted by Ruby delivering a speech about how they learned the truth about her from the Relic of Knowledge and will still stop her even without killing her. Salem tells Ruby that Summer Rose once said those same words but was proven wrong, causing Ruby to break down crying with her silver eyes flickering and flaring.

V7 12 00046

The Salem apparition disappears, and Vine begins to worry, especially upon realizing that the proximity alarms along the coast near Atlas are inactive. Blake asks about the readiness to launch the Amity Tower, but Yang realizes that Ironwood just said that to lure out Watts. Ironwood then explains that he intends to raise the City of Atlas into the atmosphere instead of Amity Tower. There, the city, the two Relics and the Winter Maiden will be safe from Salem. Team RWBY protests that this plan would mean leaving people in Mantle to die due to the evacuation not being complete, but Ironwood refuses to reconsider.

Suddenly, Jaune opens a group call with Ruby, Qrow and Winter. Taking the opportunity, Ruby uses her Semblance to get past Ironwood and warn the others about his plan. Ironwood locks communications, declares that Team RWBY are under arrest, and leaves while the Ace-Ops get ready to detain them.

V7 12 00143

As RWBY and the Ace Ops prepare to fight, Marrow hesistantly asks Harriet if their plan really is to fight. Harriet insists they'll let RWBY decide, and the Ruby initiates a battle. Ruby bursts out of the room, causing Harriet to chase her in anger. Vine teams up with Elm to battle Blake and Yang, where the ladder eventually traps Blake. Vine tries to talk Yang into surrender, promising nobody will be hurt, causing Elm to snap at him to speak for himself, personally feeling betrayed by RWBY. Yang snides that Elm shouldn't care because of her orders, enraging her into dropping Blake and exasperating Vine. Elm tosses Blake aside and forces Vine to re-strategize.

Elm tries to psyche herself (and Vine) into letting go of their restraint and bonds to RWBY, but fails to do so. She and Vine's lack of communication and support leads to their defeat. After being rendered unconscious, Team RWBY then ties Vine and the Ace Ops to their Gravity Bolas, and leave them in Ironwood's office.
