** ''Fall'': Remnant's history of fairy tales are discussed, and it's revealed that some of them are actually true stories that were deliberately disguised as fairy tales to protect humanity from panic and chaos. Certain fairy tales therefore reveal that the history and religion that hold civilisation together are completely wrong, and those that know the truth are either engaged in a question to obtain unimaginable power or to prevent the abuse of unimaginable power. Humanity has absolutely no idea what the real threat to their existence is. [[spoiler:There are four Maidens who represent the four Seasons. They were gifted with incredible, magical power by an old man who possessed incredible, magical power of his own. Cinder has attacked the Fall Maiden and stolen half her power. The Fall Maiden's protectors want Pyrrha to inherit the Maiden's remaining power.]]

The Fall Maiden's protectors want Pyrrha to inherit the Maiden's remaining power. To top it off, Yang is framed into assaulting Mercury: the images of her seemingly knee-capping him in a spiteful and unprovoked attack are broadcast across the world and lead to massive outcry against the Kingdoms and the Huntsmen. This of course plays right into Cinder's hands.]]

** ''Battle of Beacon'': The stakes continue to get higher and higher. [[spoiler: Torchwick manages to take control of the Atlesian Knights with Cinder's computer virus and turns them against the civilians and hunters. Ironwood is seemingly killed and Mercury is recording the chaos as "proof" of Atlas betraying the other kingdoms. As if that wasn't enough a Grimm Dragon that can SPAWN MORE GRIMM is released.]]
** ''Heroes and Monsters'': By now the series seems to want to show that things can always get much worse. [[spoiler:Adam confronts Blake and shows that not only is he creepy, but he's also very twisted. He stabs her in order to bait Yang into attacking him head on. The attempt ends with Yang losing an arm. Elsewhere we see Ruby barely holding on against Roman and Neo. Quick thinking and Roman's unexpected death due to a Grimm are the only things that keep her alive. Meanwhile below Beacon we see that Jaune and Pyrrha have unwittingly led Cinder to Amber. This results in the death of the Fall Maiden and leads to Cinder gaining her powers.]]
** ''End of the Beginning'': [[spoiler:Pyrrha finally has her first kiss with Jaune knowing she likely won't be coming back from the battle she's about to run off to. Ultimately she dies at Cinder's hands. Ruby manages to reach them just in time to witness the death blow and then proceeds to unleash an unknown power. By the end Beacon has fallen, Ozpin is missing and Team RWBY is broken up. Weiss was forced to return home by her father, Blake has run off again (most likely to try to keep Adam away from her friends) and Yang is a broken shell of her former self. Before the episode ends the narrator from the very first episode makes a return only for the voiceover to reveal her as the true villain of the series. Her conversation with Ozpin at the start leads directly into her monologue in this episode, essentially revealing Volumes 1-3 to be one giant "how we got here" moment (hence the episode title).]]

The Fall Maiden's protectors want Pyrrha to inherit the Maiden's remaining power.]]
** ''[=PvP=]''. Cinder finally takes her plotting public, causing chaos right across the four kingdoms, but most especially in Amity Colosseum and Vale, confirming the entire story is going in a new, much darker direction. [[spoiler:Penny is graphically torn apart in the arena revealing to the whole world that she is a robot. Cinder then hijacks the global broadcast to ruin the reputations of Ozpin, Ironwood, all four academies, the Atlas army, and the concept of Hunters. She suggests the people need an entirely new leaderships and method of protecting themselves. Her speech ends with the Grimm invading Vale and Amity Colosseum, aided by Roman and Neo, and the White Fang bringing the Grimm inside the city by airship.]]

** ''Heroes and Monsters''. [[spoiler: Roman is eaten alive, Blake is injured, Yang loses an arm, Ironwood is revealed to be part robot, Pyrrha finally attempts to merge with Amber, who is killed by Cinder who absorbs the rest of her power, while Ozpin ends the episode with a YouShallNotPass moment.]] Oh, and we now know what Velvet can do.
** Volume 3's finale, ''End of the Beginning'', is possibly ''the'' WhamEpisode of the entire series, setting up one hell of a SequelHook [[spoiler: Pyrrha shares her LastKiss with Jaune before going to confront Cinder on her own. Ruby and Weiss attempt to help her but are too late, and Ruby can only watch in horror as Cinder murders Pyrrha right before her eyes. The resulting emotional outburst triggers some strange power within Ruby that completely overwhelms both the Grimm Dragon and Cinder. Beacon is left in ruins. Ozpin is nowhere to be found. Team RWBY is pretty much broken up, Yang has lost her will to fight, Weiss's father takes her back to Atlas, a country that is on the brink of war following the accusation that it is responsible for the Grimm Invasion in Vale, and Blake runs away out of guilt of what happened to Yang. Ruby joins up with the rest of Team JNPR to pursuit Cinder and co. into Haven, and the face of the true BigBad is finally revealed. NothingIsTheSameAnymore]].
