Quoting myself to reflect on the theories I made when V4 ended, since we're halfway into V5 now. Spoiler: Really just spoilers for V4, and just what I think of what's happened so far in V5 relating to the theories So at the end of the volume we know that RNJR safely made it to Haven, and it's good to see Qrow not die, because god forbid the capable chaperone dies and leaves the kids unprotected. Yang also went to Haven, though it's nice to get more information on Raven instead of what I thought would happen, just having Yang ride her motorcycle all the way there. So what about Oscar? I'm glad he didn't replace Ruby and just kind of steal _NJR for his own team. I'm happy the whole theory I made about ORNJ is false. I still don't really like Oscar as a character, and it seems like with each passing minute we just have more questions about Ozpin. What about Wei- GUYS, WEISS IS BACK WITH RUBY AND YANG. AND THEY HUG. AND IT'S SO PURE AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Weiss is back where she belongs, out of her awful father's hands and into the loving arms of her teammates. (and her girlfriend, please make White Rose canon) Not sure where this leaves Blake, though. Not a whole lot has happened in this volume for her, and all we really have right now are just death flags flying around for Kali and Ghira, but we've practically had those the entire volume, even though I don't think they're actually going to die. Deaths are very limited in this series so far and they're only the ones that really mean a lot (see Jaune's constant sorrow over Pyrrha in V4, Ruby's now shown sorrow for Penny and Pyrrha in V5) and I doubt they're just going to be given to Kali and Ghira simply because some White Fang higher-ups want her dead. Because really, everyone in the White Fang wants the Belladonnas dead. I want Blake to join the rest of the girls. I really do. But Blake still has no reason to go back to her team, and that hurts me. I have to wait longer.
