After the female titan took Erin in the last episode Mikasa wants to have revenge by taking the female titans life, Captain Levi believes that Erin is dead but he also realises that he needs Erin’s abilities so he tells Mikasa that their only objective is too remove Erin from the female titans body before she leaves the forest.
Captain Levi manages to chase down the female titan and he quickly slices at each of her muscles leaving her motionless, Mikasa attempts to kill the titan but Captain Levi quickly stops her knowing that this is impossible, they both spot Erin’s body covered in slime laying on the female titan’s tongue, they quickly grab Erin and leave the forest but surprisingly this has left the female titan quite emotional as a single tear runs down her cheek, who is the Titan and why is she so emotionally attached to Erin?
During their escape the survey corps are being chased by a titan who is getting closer and closer to them, they are unable to out run this titan due to the weight of all of the corpses in their wagons, a very emotional scene plays where the soldiers have to abandon the bodies in order to gain more speed to escape, its a very sad thought that the soldiers could be letting go of the bodies of some of their best friends.
We see that Erin is alive during the wagon chase which is a very comforting thought, we get to see sensitive side to Captain Levi who gives a soldier called Dieter the badge of his friend Ivan, he was very upset because he had to throw his friends corpse away and Captain Levi gave him this to help him cope with the loss, its a very touching moment.
The soldiers return to town after failing their mission, the towns folks are very ungrateful for the sacrifice of the soldiers and they keep complaining about the wasted money and they blame the soldiers for the many deaths that happened over the course of the mission, the criticism upsets Erin but he soon sees a little boy who is very excited and this reminds Erin of himself many years ago.
All of those responsible for the missions failure have been summoned to the capital and Erin is to most likely be handed over to the Military Police who wanted him killed during the court case.
I really enjoyed this episode, there was not as much action sequences as the last episode but the emotional moments were very well directed and left me feeling very emotional, Attack on Titan is a very serious show even if it may seem a little silly too some people, I really hope that Erin does not get handed to the Military Police as that would not leave humanity with much hope at all.
great episode but I did enjoy the last episode just a little bit more
