When I watched this episode I couldn’t believe that it is already over. If I could I would have started watching the next one right after that. Too bad I can’t.
In this episode we got new characters, that are, most likely, going to be significant. And they are likable too. Here are they:
Levi is a really powerful fighter. He can take on two titans at once without panicking or being desperate. He seems to have the same goal as Eren, to destroy all the titans. But his personality is way different. And that is a good thing, two Eren-like man would be too much.
Also, it is said that Levi is a “clean freak”. I guess they meant to say that he has an obsession with cleanliness. They showed that he did not like to have Titans blood in he hands and was wiping it out in the middle of the fight.
Hanji, unlike Levi, is quite passionate. She seems to be interested in Titans, though that looks like an act, as she kills them anyway.
After they showed us the new guys, they made a little Eren flashback. You remember I was making theories about that Eren transformed the titan that ate him? I was wrong :D Eren himself became a titan. Here (lots of blood, sorry):
And so, it seems that Eren can transform into a titan now. I wonder how it all works. I thought that titans were being piloted by unconscious humans, that were eaten by titans. We still have no prove to that theory. But we know that a human can turn into a titan. Witch means that titans might originally be humans. And if that is the case, then there is someone behind the scenes who made all this happen.
Oh it might be something simple, like a virus that made people transform. I am not saying that it is realistic, or convincing, but this is anime after all.
After that they moved back to the reality where Eren saw that there are soldiers all around him, who were ready to kill him.
So, what happens is that this dude on the picture above drives Eren into a corner and Eren, in the moment of desperation, learns how to use his power and turns into a titan to save Armin and Mikasa.
Lets take another look at this new form:
Why exactly he is so different here? He was able to instantly turn into a normal titan when he was eaten. Why wasn’t he able to do it now. My guess is that he is exhausted. He can’t used this power over and over, he need time to rest. So now, when he forced himself to use it again, he wasn’t able to achieve the complete form.
Now, what will happen next? I don’t think that those military guys will be satisfied untill they kill him. But we know that Levi is heading there. So I think that he will resolve this situation. He might dislike Eren for what he is, but I think he won’t let them kill one of their own. Not to mention that it is a really useful power that Eren has.
Also, as we saw, Eren father asked Eren to retake the wall Maria (which is a lot to ask of a boy) and get to the basement of their home (which is going to be important, I feel). So, hope they will move in this direction in the next episode.
