Erwin is a genius!!!
My jaw was dropped for most of this episode!
In this recent episode of Attack on Titan, something good finally happened!
The fate of the scouts and Erwin was finally revealed, and boy am I happy.
A quick run through of what happened:
Commander Erwin was put in front of the King and his judgement was clear as day. He was about to be executed and so were the scouts.
He tried to prove to them that the scouts were essential to the plan to reclaim Wall Maria and protect Wall Rose, however, they did not listen.
At that moment once his death was finalized, all hell broke loose, because it was announced that Wall Rose was breached by the Colossal and Armored titan!
Are we shaking yet?
Because the council was!
They actually ordered that military close the doors of Wall Sina and chose to sacrifice the people in wall Rose.
Are we surprised? Nope!
Now for the big reveal!
Premier Dahlis Zachary arrived with troops declaring that the announcement was a false alarm!! The council’s jaw was already dropping.
Then Pyxis announced a coup d’état! Drama!!
Levi and his group received the news and are now headed to the Reiss estate as Hange explains to them the recent history of the Reiss family and how they were exterminated at their Chapel by bandits. Meanwhile, we see Eren imprisoned in a crystalline chamber and approached by Historia. What’s going on???
This episode was fantastic. No fighting or anything just a plain genius plan by Erwin who smiled through the entire thing. Who grins when they’ve just been sentenced to death?
I cannot wait for the next episode!
