Wow Wow Wow Wow Wow
Attack on Titan fans have been spoiled throughout the series but never more spoiled than the latest “Two Brothers” episode referring to Eren Yeager and Zeke. This episode leaves the biggest cliffhanger at the end and will have your brain explode because you have to wait another week for an all new episode to see what happens.
This episode proves Zeke is the ultimate mastermind and with Captain Levi currently out of the way there is no one that can stop him. Even when Zeke seems to always have another trick up his bag.
When Zeke was down and out had to transform everyone including Falco into titans even after Colt pleaded with him desperately wasn’t even his biggest trick during the episode. Colt attempted to shield his brother from his transformation energy, which ultimately led to him being severely injured. Zeke eventually told Falco to attack Reiner since he had Eren pinned down. While Falco was trying to eat Reiner out of her Armored Titan, Porco sacrificed himself instead.
This led to Reiner attacking Eren but ended up trapped. Eren escapes his titan body and tries to reach Zeke until Gabi shoots his head off which ultimately ends up in Zeke’s hands.
In this part of the episode I thought Eren would be dead especially after it went on commercial break during Hulu but the episode continues with Eren memories and flashbacks that leads him into this sort of different dimension with Zeke and Ymir.
Eren was never in favor of Zeke’s plan and tried to use Ymir powers but Zeke suspected Eren wouldn’t go along with it. We learn that Ymir, the most powerful Titan is a slave of the royal family. Zeke is a descendant of the royal family, but not a direct descendant of the first king, Karl Fritz, he isn’t burdened by the vow of nonviolence that Fritz took when he came to Paradis. Also, Zeke is not actually the founding Titan but since he has Eren head in his hands, he has access to the founding titan power.
There was a flashback scene when Zeke and Eren were going over the plan but it was a very interesting dynamic to see if Zeke actually trusted Eren. In the scene, it seems like Zeke purposely avoided touching Eren but throws a baseball at him to see if he catches it. Eren doesn’t catch the baseball and for me I think Zeke learned Eren wasn’t comfortable with the plan.
Zeke could have also avoided touching Eren Yeager because maybe he couldn’t have possessed Ymir powers yet until he visited that same place back in episode 17. The next episode of Attack on Titan will have a lot of questions to be answered.
Does Mikasa kill Gabi? Is Eren Dead? What is Zeke’s next move? When will Captain Levi return?
This episode has been my favorite since the return. The back and forth scenes. I didn’t know what would happen. The paths visuals were stunning and I love how they showed Eren memories before entering the paths. This episode was a masterpiece.
