** Taiyang dismissing Yang as not being ready to face the real world, Yang bemoaned 'does every father figure just have the same three condescending phrases?'. Its subdued, but it shows that even though they're only Uncle and Niece, Yang considers Qrow to be just as much a father figure to her as Taiyang is.

* Let's take a brief moment to bask in Weiss' character evolution so far. When Blake makes a move to isolate herself, Weiss stands up and encourages them all to do something together. She was doing two things here which warm the heart. First, after Ruby explained her intentions in detail about spending their last day of free time together Weiss is the first to support her efforts. While she might not be advocating for the specific scheme Ruby has in mind, she is taking the initiative to accomplish Ruby's endgame of spending time together. This is in major contrast to how she started in volume one, where she treated Ruby as either a hindrance or as a rival through most of the episodes. Second, she is specifically attempting to wrangle Blake back into the group and not allow her to isolate herself. While this gesture is not as obvious as it becomes in episode two, Weiss is clearly trying to reach out to the girl. It's particularly poignant considering all the things she said about Blake's species and former organization at the end of volume 1.

* Weiss noticing Blake's depression, and calling her out on it, getting her to open up to them, just as Blake promised at the end of Volume 1. The way she dramatically poses on a chair just to ask Blake what is wrong is adorable ''and'' funny. Looks like Ruby's rubbing off on her.

* The episode opens with Pyrrha kicking the ever living crap out of Team CRDL. Yes, it's awesome seeing her beating them all on her own, but if you remember how much they bullied Jaune back in Volume 1, along with the hints that she loves Jaune and the '''[[NoKillLikeOverkill brutal]]''' way she finishes off Cardin, it's pretty likely that she asked to face them at least partly because she was still mad and wanted payback. [[CallBack It's just too bad she didn't get to live up to her threat to break Cardin's legs.]]

* According to Emerald, Team RWBY is always happy around each other and friendly to everyone they meet. Yes, that includes the normally stuck-up, temperamental Weiss and the antisocial, brooding Blake. Seeing Team RWBY so comfortable with one another is such a far cry from the tensions that nearly tore the group apart in Volume 1.

* When Jaune is arguing with BRNZ, Pyrrha calls for him and he takes a moment to suppress his anger before speaking to her. It's a small thing, but considering that he previously raised his voice against her in Volume 1, the fact that he made such an effort just to not accidentally do so again says a lot about much he has grown to care for her.

* Blake and Weiss, who spend the last portion of Volume 1 butting heads, fighting off Grimm together. Weiss, who contested Ruby's leadership in Volume 1, lets Blake take the lead in fighting off the White Fang at the docks. Blake pushes Weiss out of the way of an Atlesian robot's line of fire. When the two of them split up to deal with multiple threats, Weiss tells her to be safe.

** It also shows how far Weiss has come as a character. Way back in Volume 1 she held so much contempt for the Faunus that it wouldn't have surprised anyone if she did nothing.

* Ruby's ShutUpHannibal to Roman is a testament to her beliefs that she mentioned way back in volume 1, that she and the rest of the Huntsmen and Huntresses are there to make the world better.

* The scene where Ruby makes fun of Jaune's Pumpkin Pete Hoodie is mostly just [[CrowningMomentOfFunny really, really funny]], but it also serves to show us that, despite everything bad that happened in Volume 3, our heroes can still laugh.

* In response to Kali saying that a father is never too busy for his daughter, Blake smiles a bit and says not all her friends would agree with that. It's nice that despite the circumstances and being separated from them by continents, she can think of her friends and smile. And for Weiss in particular, it's another marker of how far they've come since the days of Volume 1, when the reveal of Weiss' relationship with her father was part of her big fight with Blake.
* Blake's conversation with her father, set to a remix of "All Our Days" from Volume 2, certainly qualifies. Although it starts humorous as Blake sheepishly interacts with her father, it turns [[TearJerker emotional]] quickly when Blake breaks down crying and apologizes for going against her parents' wishes, even stating that she's not worth their affection, and her father forgives her. It's a very tender scene [[spoiler:[[MomentKiller until Sun ruins it by collapsing into the room and breaking down the door]]]].

* [[spoiler: The first thing Ruby does as soon as the fight with the Nuckelavee is over is to check on Qrow. She then proceeds to stay by his side throughout the entire trip to Mistral and watches over him as he recovers. She even gives him an AffectionateGestureToTheHead like he did in Volume 3. It just goes to show how much Ruby cares for her uncle.]]

* Crossing over with TearJerker, during the letter montage, we briefly see Taiyang looking at a picture of his old team. Regardless of how far apart they have grown, he still obviously misses them. As he puts down the STRQ picture, the camera moves to Zwei sitting next to the couch, wagging his tail and barking at Tai, who smiles back. Good to know he isn't completely alone. We then see him look up and start looking at another picture: One of Team RWBY, together and happy, with the words: "New Friends!" written on it, implying it is from all the way back in Volume 1.

** On a more [[{{Tearjerker}} depressing note]], "Cold", the second song played in the credits of the last episode of Volume 3. It's heavily implied to be from [[spoiler:Jaune's perspective about Pyrrha]] (and a tribute to Monty from Roosterteeth). It's about how someone has inspired them to become a hero, when up until that point, they felt as if they'd never accomplish anything great, and how dearly they miss that person.

* Jaune accusing Qrow of using Ruby as living bait for Salem's group. It shows that his anger is not misplaced, he's legitimately pissed at the man for putting another friend in danger. While there are many things Jaune doesn't know, what he does know is that Ruby could've gotten hurt and that's what he cares about.

* At RTX 2017, Gray Haddock announced a new mecha show called "gen:Lock", and revealed that the concept art's being supplied by RWBY fanartist dishwasher1910, making it the [[AscendedFanboy third time a member of the RWBY community got hired by the company]] after [[VideoGame/RWBYGrimmEclipse Jordan Scott]] and [[WebAnimation/RWBYChibi Mojojoj]]. The fact that Creator/RoosterTeeth does this time and time again with especially talented community members is heartwarming to the nth degree.
