Attention people hating on Jaune for having 'one job' guarding the hallway:

Sorry, but when your best friend and possible love is /screeching/ in pain and agony and you feel helpless and want it to stop, the last thing you are going to be thinking of is ‘ah let me just stare at the door still’. He was in the dark about the whole situation, and when he heard Pyrrha in pain, he turned to try and help her cause he was scared. No need to try and blame him for all of this.

So many people are giving Jaune flack for what he did in today’s episode.

But I’m like

If I heard my best friend/partner screaming in agony behind me

After I learned they have been stressed out about something I don’t know about

And I’m trying to protect god knows what’s happening behind me

From a threat that may or may not have come

I would’ve done the same thing.

Because let’s be honest. Jaune is only human. He’d rather act on something he can understand rather than on what he doesn’t.

And what he understands was that his partner was in pain.

RWBY: Vol 3 Ep. 11

Things that made me want to cry this episode:

1. Roman possibly being gone forever. (For me, this was one of the saddest moments. Problematic fav)

2. How much Adam was willing to hurt Blake.

3. Velvet using Penny’s weapons.

4. Cinder gaining the second half of Amber’s powers.

5. Amber dying.

6. Pyrrha’s shriek when Cinder blasted Jaune with her newfound powers.

7. Yang’s unexpected injury.

8. Ren and Nora’s concern for one another.

9. Every single character getting hurt in some way, be it physically, emotionally, or mentally, except for freaking Cinder.

I really hope no one gets mad at Jaune

If I heard someone close to me, screaming out like that….I would turn around see what was going on too. Not only that, but Cinder is kinda overpowered (one half of a maiden at that point) and there was really no way he could have stopped her even if he was looking. She would have simply shot him with an arrow and took aim at Amber before he could even get the word out most likely. 

You know the more I think about it…… The more I think Ozpin planned on killing Pyrrha and giving Amber her aura. I know it sounds crazy or stupid but when they were doing the transfusion Pyrrha was in incredible pain while Amber seemed to regain conscience. Maybe Jaune fucking up saved Pyrrha’s life?

OMG WTF ROOSTERTEETH!?

After this episode I am so emotionally wrecked!!! BOTH GOOD AND BAD!!

GOOD:

~Ruby was a badass. I love her dearly, and even more now. She was trying to fight without her scythe and she was actually decent at it (needs more practice though)

~Roman’s speech. How he is doing it because he had no choice, because he had to win or most like be killed by Cinder (he didn’t day that per se but it was implied).

~Velvet’s Semblance and weapon. HELL YEAH THAT WAS BADASS!! ALL THAT BUILD UP WAS NOT FOR NOTHING!! Using everyone she took a picture of’s weapons and fighting styles! From Team RWBY to using Nora’s and even Penny’s!!

~QROW’S SCYTHE FORM! CAN I GET A MAJOR YAAAAAAAASSSSSSS!?!?!?!?! FINALLY we get to see it and it is so awesome!

~IRONWOOD PULLING A FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST!!! Metal right arm, no too predictable. WHOLE ROBOTIC RIGHT HALF OF BODY?!!? OH YEAH.

~Blake and Adam fighting. I’m leaving it here…

~Weiss’ partial summoning. If you notice it is the arm from the knight in the White Trailer. Also Weiss willing to put her life on the line for a Faunus, a type of being she was raised to hate, and worry about her and save her with her summoning.

~ARCOS FEELS. <3

~Cinder actually fulfilling what she wanted. Now she us an even more dangerous character to mess with.

~Sun’s line.

~RENORA FEELS! <3


THE BAD:

~Roman’s (possible) death. Really, For such a great character and even a classic style villain that way to kill him off was cheap. Cinder should’ve killed him because it would show how truly evil she is and how powerful she has become and will get rid of her own pawns.

~Adam stabbing Blake. I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU YOU PIECE OF GARBAGE I HATE YOU! (If you RP or cosplay as him, I’m not mad at you. This was great to see his character truly and see him advance. Great chcaracter development, I just don’t like him right now.)

~YANG GETTING LUKE SKYWALKER-ED!!! I know this is a world wear getting a robotic limb isn’t out of the ordinary, probably a lot of Hunstmen and Huntresses have them from fighting Grimm, BUT YANG?!!? MY PRECIOUS DRAGON CHILD!!!??? She is just a kid and probably in a lot of mental stress going on right now! First her fight with Mercury and her head getting messed with, her uncle let slip that her mother is probably up to no good but we don’t know for sure, her little sister is missing, one of her best friends- her partner -getting stabbing in front of her, and now the loss of her hand and potentially one of her weapons (I have no idea if Blake grabbed her severed hand or not for the weapon). YANGXIETY TO THE EXTREME RIGHT NOW!!

~Juane had one job, and that was to guard the door. I’ll let that slide cause he heard Pyrrha in pain and wanted to comfort her. Also, even if he saw Cinder coming in what the hell was he going to do? She has a bow an arrow and could easily cripple Juane and then kill Amber before Juane could get a word out to Ozpin.

~NO TAIYANG OR RAVEN. WHERE ARE YOU PARENTS!?!?!? YOUR BABY DRAGON-BIRD GOT HER FRICKEN HAND CUT OFF!!! DO SOMETHING AND KICK ADAM’S ASS PLEASE!!

~WHERE WAS ZWEI?!!? HE WAS WITH YANG IN THE LAST EPISODE WHERE DID HE GO!?!?!?!? COULD HE HAVE HELPED WITH ADAM!?!?


This was the most intense episode up to date and next week is the Volume finale… then we don’t get more RWBY until possibly around October…

I can tell you that this ain’t going to be a Fairy Tale ending…
