It has been a while since the episodes have been released but let’s not talk about that. These two episodes were action packed and there is some considerable plot development too. The members of Levi’s squad had managed to force the female titan into a corner. She ended up killing them in the end anyway.
Eren snapped after he saw that and turned into a titan but the female titan was too much for him to handle .He was defeated.
Now what does the female titan intend to do with him? She was after him from the beginning. She obviously knows more about titans than Eren and she is more powerful than he is. So why in the world does she need him? Why go through all that trouble to capture him?
Levi and Mikasa managed to get Eren back. But that’s all. They couldn’t capture the female titan. I was looking forward to Levi and Mikasa fighting together. But Levi did all the work. Mikasa only diverted the titan’s attention for a short while.
Levi didn’t give the female titan enough time to harden her skin to defend herself. Actually he was so fast that I couldn’t even get a decent screen shot of him attacking her.
The most unexpected part of the episode was this scene.
She looked so sad that I almost wished she had succeeded in capturing Eren, just so that she would stop making that face.I realize that somehow I’ve ignored the fact that the person inside this titan is a human too. A human who understands the seriousness of her actions. Though I’ve got no idea what they are, I am sure she has got her reasons to do what she is doing. A human who thinks nothing of human lives will not be able to make such a face. Why was failing to capture Eren such a big blow for her? Why is he so important?
After that there was a filler about a couple of guys trying to retrieve the dead body of their friend. Levi and Erwin told them to forget about the dead body. There were titans back there and they would die if they went back to retrieve it.
They went to get the dead body anyway. Not only did they fail to retrieve the body, the black haired guy was killed by a titan and the titans followed the blond guy to the location of the recon cops, putting everyone in danger. There weren’t any tall trees around. So they couldn’t use their maneuver gear. They threw the dead bodies of the people they were taking back at the titans to slow them down. This didn’t make any sense. The titans are heavy and any human they step on will be instantly squished. This doesn’t exactly slow them down. But they did manage to make all the viewers feel the horror of the situation.Even if they were dead, they were their comrades. One of the guys was crying as he threw all the dead bodies out.
In the end their mission was a complete failure.
Feels like a lost has happened in these two episodes.See you next time (^_^)/
