So, what happened to Eren? Is he really dead? We don’t know, as far as this episode is concerned. This is because this episode opens with Connie finding and waking up an unconscious Armin.
Why the hell is he alive? Why? Why?! Again, we don’t know. Some stroke of luck, maybe. But Armin is alive and well, albeit sticky. True story. Ok, maybe not well, because he’s now all emo about, well, the horror of everything including being spared while everyone else around you died.
Totally reasonable reaction, especially when you add in witnessing a girl repeatedly doing CPR on her dead boyfriend.
As for the other areas of the city, the evacuation is on a standstill thanks to some merchant trying to evacuate his goods.
So everyone’s waiting outside of the gates, raging. That is until this uhm, effeminate (really, look at him run) titan comes sprinting madly.
The elites of the defense can’t seem to catch up to this titan. Enter Mikasa and her fabulousness.
After making quick work of the titan, Mikasa eyes the evacuation standstill, and that pisses her off. She threatens her way around, eventually getting rid of that path blocking cargo so that everyone can get the hell out of this… well… hell.
Enter Mikasa flashback.
Shall I say loli Mikasa?
Once upon a time loli Mikasa was happily living with her parents, until bandits happened.
Basically, Mikasa’s mom is a rare Oriental, supposedly a lost human race. Mikasa and her mom are the targets of the kidnapping, but as the mom resisted, only Mikasa got abducted. Both parents died.
But that was the day Eren and his dad was supposed to visit the Ackerman family, and upon seeing the bloody mess of a house, Mr. Jaeger went to call for the cops, while Eren, well, he ignored instructions and raged. He went to save Mikasa, killing two of the three bandits.
Well, two bandits, because the third one was not there when he paid a visit. But he soon showed up after Eren freed Mikasa from being tied up.
After a bit of an internal struggle, that was when Mikasa achieved her, uhm, tranquil state, killing off the remaining bandit.
And thus there goes the story of how Mikasa got adopted by the Jaeger family, and why she is so attached to Eren. FYI, that scarf was given by Eren.
So there, flashback on loli Mikasa to show how her thinking operates, and that largely revolves around Eren. End of episode.
Why are there no updates on Eren? Why? Why?! Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?
