Things got off to a pretty rough start for the alliance that saved the world from Rumble in Attack on Titan episode 84.

Events in Attack on Titan goes as expected as the Marley invasion survivors and scout groups sit around a campfire on the eve of their mission to stop Rumble. However, it can be a lot worse when tensions between the two groups only turn to minor bloodshed. The war between the Eldians and the Marleys has been going on for 2,000 years and although none of these people were there when it started, they refuse to let the past lie and focus on the future – and possibly lack of it. them thanks to Rumble. After Yelena opens up old wounds by reminding everyone of the terrible things they’ve done, it remains to be seen how well this ragtag group of “heroes” will perform as a unit moving forward before.
On Marley’s side, Reiner, Annie, Gabi, Falco and Pieck seemed to just sit and stare at the flames. General Magath couldn’t help but stir things up with his new Eldia comrades. While his words are harsh and a bit unfair – blaming these people for the sins of their ancestors – he makes the undeniable point that what the world hates and fears of the Eldians is happening thanks to Eren’s roaring release. Part of Magath’s anger felt like arguing for the sake of arguing because the man hated Eldia so much that he was clearly interested in Gabi, who was of the same “Dirty Island Devil” bloodline as most people. others in this group.
Only Hange, who just wanted to eat his stew in peace and quiet, could see the futility of discussing a 2,000-year war that neither of them were present when it began. Jean, who is struggling the most to decide how he feels about the consequences of what Eren did, reminds Magath that Eldians are not the only ones who have done bad things in this war. .
In perhaps the most logical argument of the evening, Jean was convinced that Eren wouldn’t have tried to destroy the world if his mother hadn’t been eaten by the Titan in front of her. Marley was the one who restarted the war after 100 years of peace when the Eldians were still ignorant of the past on Paradis Island, and their first attack at the start of Attack on Titan led to what was happening. now.
After Annie and Mikasa ended a close fight over whether Eren needed to be killed, the actual planning stage to save the world wasn’t far off. Only Yelena could tell where Eren planned to go first as Rumble spread across the planet, and she decided to let everyone know rather than reveal what she did or didn’t know. Yelena is clearly a pretty goofy person, knowing what these people were doing long before she landed on Paradis Island, posing as an Anti-Marleyan Volunteer. She reminds Jean that he tried to kill Falco and Armin that he wiped out Marley’s port and killed more people than almost anyone else in the group. She reminds Reiner of the lives he took when he destroyed the Wall and how Annie single-handedly slaughtered many.
When Yelena asked Jean about Marco, the cadet that Reiner, Bertholdt, and Annie killed in the Battle of Trost, tension finally flared when Jean attacked Reiner. As a stalling tactic to allow Eren to progress further with Rumble while the only ones who can stop him from fighting each other, Yelena’s opening of old wounds is very effective. She may or may not know where Eren is going, but while the fighting continues, Floch and the Jaegerists arrive at the port first, meaning the Team’s path to stopping Eren from getting off the island will be a lot more complicated. .
Everyone in this alliance has done terrible things and all are wrong in some way, for the battle between Marley and the Eldians has always been a bloody, brutal one. The only thing they agree on is that they can’t let Eren destroy the world. Their first real test ahead of them is that they’ll have to get past Floch and the Jaegerists in pursuit of Eren, and there’s still no sign that the group can fight together when necessary. The fate of the world of Attack on Titan depends on whether the Eldians and Marley can work together, and it doesn’t look good so far.
