(Lechería, November 13, O’kuroku).- After all the hype created by the premiere of RWBY Volume 6, it is finally time to talk of episode two. Oh boy, there is a lot of things to discuss regarding this episode.

I have always had mixed feelings regarding Raven and even today I still think she can be redeemed; besides, after watching all the things that happened in this second episode I can understand her mindset and her motivations to do all the things she has done.

On the other hand, I never trusted Ozpin because he always gave me the impression that he spoke a lot of half-truths and kept even more information to himself. In fact, while many people compared him to Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, I always said he really was closer to Dumbledore from Harry Potter.

When Yang confronted him after meeting her mom, it said a lot that when asked for “no more lies, no more half-truths” his answer was “understood”. In that very moment I realized that he had no intentions of changing his behavior… and oh boy, he did not.

Not telling that the relic was a magnet for Grimms was a poor strategy, but when he was confronted (again) because of that, his reaction was way far of what you would expect of the wise and powerful headmaster of the first volumes.

Perhaps, the bright side of the whole situation was that we could understood more about Ozpin’s motivations and why he acts that way; however, in my opinion, if he wants to get support, that is the worst approach to use. Lionheart’s betrayal and Raven’s desertion are proofs of it (and Ozpin said there were others who betrayed him before)

Sadly, that was not the worst part, in the end, his behavior after noticing that Ruby had the relic reminded me Gollum from Lord of the Rings. His apparent inability to trust people can switch into paranoia really fast. Do you think that behavior is fitting of a person who has lived so many years?

Obviously, that behavior created a lot of tension between him and team RWBY to the point where Yang, Blake and Weiss did not hesitate to threat Crow to prevent him to help Ozpin against Ruby. What happened next was a “Chronicle of a Death Foretold”.

Ozpin lied again by saying the relic could not be used since all the questions had been already asked (there were two remaining), and he went berserk when Ruby asked the genie what everybody wanted to know by that point: “What is Ozpin hiding from us?” We have not gotten a complete answer to that question yet (courtesy of Rooster Teeth’s cliffhangers), but what was revealed in this episode showed that Ozpin might be responsible of Salem current state, her hatred towards humanity and her desire to destroy humanity.

By the way, I need to tell you that the revelation of Salem being human once was brutal. I know many people were theorizing that after watching the opening, but many people were also theorizing the blond girl was Glynda Goodwitch, so not everybody was expecting what happened.

On the other hand, the conflict between Ozpin and team RWBY was so big and the revelations were so brutal that I almost forgot that Maria Calavera was formally introduced in this episode. However, I have to say that I liked what I saw of her and I am pretty sure her future interactions with team RWBY are going to be awesome. Besides, considering what I saw in the opening is highly probable that she becomes a key person in this volume (many people is theorizing that she is using that fancy gadget to hid her silver eyes)

Another key point of this episode was the scene between Cinder and the underground group. I always had doubts regarding Fall’s death because of that old rule “no body, no death”. Besides, it would have been a total waste of a good character; especially since this mini arc of hers is showing a huge potential to be great.

In case you are wondering, I am not saying that just because Cinder’s intention of getting revenge. I still think that Neo is going to be back in this volume and that she is going to pursue her own vendetta against Fall. In fact, many people thought Neo was the woman wearing a robe in the opening but this episode confirmed them wrong. Nevertheless, I do not think Roman’s hat was shown in the opening just for misleading us to think that woman was not Cinder.

Ah and I have to say something about the spiders’ group’s leader. Lil’ Miss Malachite is clearly a woman who knows how the underground world works and I am pretty sure we will be seeing more of her in the future (even in the following volumes) Looking forward to that.

The plot is getting really interesting and we are finally getting huge revelations so I just cannot wait to watch episode 3. By the way, I could not help but remind Aladdin’s movie when I saw Jinn (great character design) See ya in my next review.
