Levi’s squad is back into action, Historia turns out to be badass, and Eren is just a traumatized crybaby. Attack on Titan keeps getting better and better and I can’t deal with its awesomeness anymore.
Japanese Original Episode Title: 願い
Levi and his squad get into the underground chamber and start creating smoke so they can get close to the Interior Police and attack them from behind. During the battle, Levi fights with Kenny, and Mikasa with Traute, but Traute manages to wound Hange badly enough and they are able to retreat to their second defensive position. Meanwhile, Rod Reiss explains to Historia that the chamber and city walls were built by a Titan one hundred years ago who was also the one who wiped the memories of the people. He also tells her that Frieda inherited the Founding Titan and the memories of their world, but this knowledge can only be accessed by someone of the Reiss bloodline. Historia then is told by her father that she must eat Eren to get the power and eliminate all the Titans. When Kenny hears about this, he betrays Reiss and tries to turn Eren into a Titan. Historia then realizes that her father is only after power and doesn’t care about saving humanity. She breaks the syringe containing the ability to turn her into a Titan and goes to free Eren. At that time, Rod Reiss consumes the liquid and is turned into a Titan himself.
You got to love Armin and Hange: That little genius managed to analyze and find weaknesses in their enemies so fast and effortlessly. I am pretty sure that Armin along with the assistance of Hange came up with the whole plan of using smoke against the Interior Police. They are just amazing. Also, if Hange is injured to the point of not being able to move forward in the story, I will get seriously upset. You hear me Isayama?
The Founding Titan: So all these happened by the same Titan? One guy fucked up human history so badly? I am so bloody curious to see the reasoning behind all this conspiracy. Did the ones in power do all this just to protect themselves and keep their ‘nobility’? I highly doubt it. Why is the spinal fluid so important when they consume Titan power holders? What does it mean god, damn it?!
Historia deserves a medal: Finally, someone told Eren to shut up and stop crying like a baby all the time. He needed a good slap at that point but I think the only one who has the right to beat the shit out of him is Levi. I wouldn’t mind seeing him kicking his ass once again so he can stop act all traumatized and sensitive.
Themes & Trivia
Syringe: A device Rod Reiss wants Historia Reiss to use and transform into a Titan. It is believed to use spinal fluid, and by injecting the transformation serum, one is granted the inherent abilities of a Titan.
I have to say that the fighting scene in this episode was amazingly executed. The music with the sick freestyle at the background (reminded me a little bit of Rage Against the Machine) when Levi was fighting Kenny was fitting perfectly with the whole scene. I mean even Kenny said ‘Yo Levi’ because he was feeling it too.
I also feel like Kenny was voicing the viewers a little bit with his actions in this episode. He was salty since he realized that he won’t be able to get his hands on this great Titan power and started giving a wake-up call to Historia as well, like: ‘Hello? Can’t you see he is using you? Eren turns into a Titan so we can give the viewers some action *cuts his forehead*, come on, carry on, yes Historia you go gurl, give them hell’.
I hope that Eren will get his shit together after this because he has to start acting now. Even his father told him that he has to avenge his mother, I mean okay I understand that seeing yourself eating your dad is not easy, but Reiss was obviously bullshiting them, how can he believe him so easily and be all like: ‘Historia, eat me please.’ He is the definition of pathetic and needs to get his game straight because shit is getting real.
Just shut up crybaby.
I honestly love Historia more than ever before just because she said that to him. Can’t wait to see the Scouts reassembling and start getting all the pieces of the puzzle together.
