REACTION – In this episode, we are finally given some sort of answer when it comes to what happened in the castle before the Scouts were attacked by Titans and what is the deal with Ymir.
The scouts were resting up for the night. The castle tower was full of contraband and the scouts helped to themselves. What’s really interesting was when Reiner interrogating Ymir about “what does this mean?” – the scene where we ended off last episode.
Ymir was scavenging a box and said that it was full of canned herring. But here’s the best part – how does she know it was herring? The canned good was labeled in another language.
Then the Titans attack, surprisingly, in the dead of night. The scouts going all out in eliminating the attacking Titans whilst unarmed soldiers were trying their best to hold off the attack however they can.
Reiner being a bad-arse and just went on by himself to barricade the castle tower’s doors. After being his arm being bitten, Reiner gave it his all to carry the small Titan in an attempt to throw it off the tower along with him.
Berholdt was somehow suspicious throughout this episode – dropping remarks as Reiner was “more of a warrior back then.” What does that mean? Is that hinting that Reiner has something up his sleeve that even he doesn’t know?
What was horrendous in the episode was how each of the armed scouts were getting picked off one-by-one. They all died hideous deaths – the guy who found booze was desperately trying to find that beer bottle before he died but when he found one, it was empty. Pretty hilarious when he remarked “Who the hell drank this?” as he was caught by a Titan.
Ymir, Connie, Christa, Reiner, and Berholdt were the ones remaining in the tower.
Ymir started going around that she’d fight with Connie’s knife and jumped off the edge of the tower. Only to transform to a titan. Yep, kind of expected for me but man, what a way to reveal it.
Throughout the entire episode, there was a lot of hinting and foreshadowing which leads me to a lot of theories for the next events and all that.
This episode was quite enjoyable. It’s slowly kicking the series into full overdrive and I can’t wait for the next episode.
