The end of Season 4, Season 2 of Attack on Titan ends with massive destruction – and a haunting callback to Shiganshina’s demise that started it all.
Kodoani.com – The following section contains information for Attack on Titan part 4, episode 28.
Attack on Titan Season 4, Season 2 finally ends with a haunting image of the devastation of the Führer Eren Jaeger – in the form of the Founding Titan – and the giants of Rumble finally arriving on the continent of Marley, heralding the doom the beginning of a mass genocide.
Ever since Eren started Rumble, both Eldian and Marley have been scrambling to find a way to end the inevitable. However, Hange Zoe made it clear that they wouldn’t be able to stop Eren completely. In other words, while the main team is fighting to the best of their ability to save the world, at least one part of Rumble will be successfully executed – and audiences can see it as just fear and anxiety. death. The sight of Eren’s massive Primordial Titan leading the attack is horrifying but familiar, paralleling the Titan Colossal’s initial attack against Shiganshina in Episode 1.
Shiganshina’s demise was not only the inciting incident to launch Attack on Titan, but it also ignited the unrelenting fire within Eren that took his character on a journey into new territories. Once there, Bertholdt Hoover used the power of the Colossal Titan to break through the gates of Shiganshina, allowing any lurking giants to enter. Countless people lost their lives, including Carla, Eren’s mother, who was eaten right in front of Eren’s eyes. Grieving and completely outraged, Eren declares that he will “kill them all”. In this context, “them” alludes to the Titans and Eren continues to carry a deep hatred for them – but as the film progresses and the mysteries are unraveled, the goal is to wipe out “everyone”. Eren’s now deals with humans rather than Titans.
In the present, Eren had become the thing he hated the most and the situation was as ironic as tragic. Now, his earlier statement took on new meaning. As it turned out, the Titans were merely Eldians – humans transformed into a monstrous species against their will. The main conflict in Attack on Titan is not simply humans versus giants, but humans versus humans. Eren wants peace for his people, but 2000 years of fighting and xenophobia complicate this.
As children, Eren, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert each dreamed of a world beyond the walls, with the idea of freedom driving them forward despite the difficulties that await them as children. military. The fact is that the walls of the past have waited for more enemies. Realizing this was detrimental to all of them, but it was Eren who took things a little too far. Driven by the memory of his mother’s death, Eren begins Rumble to eliminate all of humanity except the inhabitants of Paradis Island.
While Rumble is definitely a parallel to the series’ beginning, it’s also far more devastating. Instead of a Colossal Titan that allowed pure Titans to destroy part of Paradis Island, Eren led a massive army of Titans intent on destroying the world. While the Marleys fired heavy artillery, it quickly proved insufficient. Surprisingly, Wall Titans can swim – and they swim much faster than walking.
Even though people aren’t devoured like in Episode 1, it’s still a carnage. Soldiers were blown away by pressurized air or melted by the steam exerted by the Titans. Season 2 ends with a scene where the Colossal Titan stomps on the camera, possibly hinting at the fate of the soldiers currently racing for their lives. Also, like Carla and the victims of Shiganshina, they are dying for reasons they don’t fully understand. If that weren’t enough, the music playing during Eren’s attack is a rendition of the track played in Episode 1.
Eren’s current belief system in Attack on Titan is being altered, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that his beliefs were created by being a victim of circumstances. After first discovering the ability to use the Attack Titan in Season 1, Eren wants to be humanity’s hope. But everything has changed. The world isn’t what Eren thinks it is and when he becomes what Eren once swore to destroy, Eren becomes an enemy of the world in hopes of protecting those he loves.
