Well, I give this season credit for not ending on a cliffhanger. I was honestly expecting it. Anyway, this episode ended up being a decent resolution for the arc, with the combination of Eren’s new ability and Hannes’s death. Overall, I felt like this season did a good job of putting the focus on some of the side characters. It sounds like a third season is coming, so that should be fun.
Ymir seems pretty willing to help despite this statement.
This is the second time we’ve had a scene like this, immediately cutting into a person being eaten by a Titan. I still haven’t decided whether it shows how devastating Titans are or how incompetent humans are.
Uhh…that’s a pretty cool song playing in the background.
At this point, Eren’s inability to transform when he needs it isn’t surprising anymore.
Yeah, he was getting a bit too much character development. It’s too bad, though. I was hoping Hannes might get some redemption.
This is probably the closest thing we’ll get to romance in this series.
A new power has been unlocked.
I was thinking the same thing, Reiner. Eren’s way too emotionally unstable for a power like that.
I’m not sure I understand why Ymir ends up going back for Reiner and Bertholdt, but it might have something to do with the stuff Historia said about living for herself. I wonder if Ymir accepts that Historia doesn’t need anymore protection or something.
I have no idea what this epilogue is saying. We’ve been watching the Scouts as they examined Wall Rose and declared that it wasn’t breached. However, this line doesn’t really mention that, making it sound like the authorities made up the story about Wall Rose being secure without any confirmation because of the overpopulation crisis.
You were the chosen one after all! Somehow Erwin knew the whole time!
I honestly wasn’t expecting this kind of reaction. I guess it raises a question of when we decide that a human is no longer human.
Final Score: 7/10
