Fully agree.

Also, to me it seemed like the episode (and fight) was structured like standard geering up to show off Jaune finally discovering his semblance - all the beats were there: heroes are brought low, Jaune the lowest, and discover something new about themselves / himself - even a hack writer can make this work. Except nope. Everything winds down and yet another character is threatened with death. The stakes are ~sooo hiiigh~ you guys.

Killing off Weiss would be a pretty sloppy move (her name is in the title of the show -_-), so she'll most likely survive, possibly...
