She has abilities other than stalking!

...and she really likes her job.

Episode 8 displays some of the best and the worst of RWBY.
The usually good voice work seemed a bit off this time around. However, that, a moment of somewhat forced character development and a patch of exceedingly cheesy dialog is rather compensated for by 13 minutes of absolutely kick-ass action...which is further enhanced by the completely unexpected awesomeness of Pancake Girl (Nora Valkyrie).

Even with the rough start, this was easily the best episode since the pilot and the first where everyone (even Jaune) got to shine.

 This show is not just a collection of random anime tropes. This episode actually has much more in common with early '90s Hong Kong martial arts flicks...
...also Chuck Jones, (but the less said about that the better).

I laughed. I winced. I cheered. I groaned. This is an odd and uneven show but it is amusing me thoroughly.

1 If you've watched Oum's "Dead Fantasy" series, you know that it's in fantastical battle scenes like this where he's in his element.

They're worth finding (Oddly, they're not on HIS YouTube channel).

2 I think Pancake Girl needs to cut down on the caffeine a bit.

3 Not necessarily.
It could just be a sugar rush.
That pile of pancakes was bigger than her head. That's a LOT of syrup, so ingested the equivalent of a whole BOX of Apple Jacks.
