Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2 Episode 2 Review: ‘Sneak Attack’

Entertainment Trending

Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2: Attack on Titan is a complicated series with hundreds of important characters, each representing a unique piece of a massive puzzle that has been slowly coming together and dismantling for ages. Thousands of lives have been lost, and history has been changed, all for this battle to come down to the union of two brothers who began the storey as bitter competitors, only to discover that they are two sides of the same coin, equally important to ending eternity of misery.

The first episode of Attack on Titan season 4 part 2 ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, and episode 2 picks off where episode 1 left off. A full-fledged fight between Marley and Eldian Yeagerist armies is shown in the latest episode.

Several possibilities arose from the preceding episode, and almost all of them came true. While some were obvious, others were more in line with AOT’s trademark unexpected twists.

Here’s an analysis of “Sneak Attack,” the second episode of Attack on Titan season 4 part 2.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SPOILER ALERT<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Armin still has faith in Eren


Armin persuaded Mikasa, Jean, and Connie that Eren could not possibly agree to the euthanasia plan in Attack on Titan season 4 part 2 episode 2. Jean screamed passionately that Eren would lead them all to hell, admitting that he used to be envious of that trait and that he didn’t want him to die just yet. Connie agreed, expressing his desire to punch Eren.

Attack on Titan Season 4

There’s a flashback to Armin recalling Eren’s question about whether they’d be free once they’d murdered all their foes. It serves as a useful reminder of Eren’s main motivation.

In the end, even Jean and Connie realise that joining the struggle and assisting Eren is in everyone’s best interests. Having Marley in charge of the Founding Titan would only make things worse for everyone, and it might even put an end to their existence. At the very least, they have a chance by aligning with Eren.

As she grapples with this new normal, Yelena becomes even more dangerous as a result of this reckoning. Because of her delusional, unpredictable personality and the odd things that set her off, she remains one of the most terrifying characters in the series. She makes a chilling and funny disapproval expression at Armin, but the most terrifying thing is that she appears just as inclined to hug him or slit his throat at this moment. Yelena comes from such a horrible place, and it’s reasonable that she feels compelled to have something to believe in when the world is so broken.

Reiner is fighting for a small portion of what Eren is fighting for

This week’s fight scenes were incredible. I have to commend MAPPA on their fantastic Season 4 Part 2 animation. Galliard’s motives are clear (he’s still angry about his brother being eaten by Ymir and Eren’s use of him to slay the Warhammer Titan.) Reiner’s intentions, on the other hand, are more difficult to decipher. He’s already broken free from Marley’s brainwashing and realises that the people of Paradis aren’t devils. He apologised to Eren and admitted that they were the same person.

But now he claims they aren’t the same and that he wants to kill Eren because “you’ve already suffered enough.” Eren, he believes, is the worst individual to unlock the full might of the Founding Titan (likely because he knows that Eren wants to kill all his enemies and would most definitely enact the Rumbling.) So, while he may be trying to prevent the Rumbling, it’s not apparent why he’s fighting for Marley.

The Beast Titan makes an appearance

The Beast Titan emerged over the Wall as if on cue, breaking boulders and flinging them at his targets, and knocked out the Marley air force right away. Eren began walking towards Zeke, as Marley soldiers scrambled to intercept him and prevent the Founding Titan and the Beast Titan from colliding.

The Cart Titan attempted to strike with anti-Titan weaponry, but Zeke’s rock pieces forced them to take shelter. Meanwhile, from the outside, the Yeagerists led by Floch approached Pieck to assassinate him.

Gabi’s realisation and Falco’s rescue

During the conflict, a military police officer named Nile takes pity on Falco and helps him reconnect with Gabi. I was surprised to see him there, as I’m still working my way through the book and had only read a few pages where Nile and Erwin were interacting. I’m not sure if this was mentioned in the anime or not (it’s not a spoiler), but Nile and Erwin were childhood friends. Nile planned to join the Survey Corps with Erwin until he met his wife, at which point he opted to join the Military Police to protect her. Erwin had been attracted to Nile’s wife as well, but he opted to fight the Titans instead. Knowing Nile’s backstory adds a layer of intrigue to his encounters with Falco.

They overhear Sasha’s parents fretting about their safety while hiding, even though they know they are to blame for Sasha’s death. Gabi’s attitude has shifted significantly since Attack on Titan season 4 part 1 when she admitted that there were no devils on Paradis Island, only humans and that she understood how Reiner felt.

When Gabi wonders why he had to profess his love to her right now, Falco confesses his love to her, bringing a smidgeon of humour to the situation. When he claims it’s because he could be changed into a Titan at any moment, the hilarity swiftly becomes sombre. They determine that the only way for him to survive is to tell Zeke what occurred so that he does not activate everyone around him.

An ambush that worked

After being hit by Pieck’s anti-Titan cannon, Zeke is barely alive in the end. Eren is slowly dragging his battered self closer to Zeke to touch him, and we still don’t sure what Eren’s plans are. Meanwhile, Gabi and Falco race to Zeke to inform him about Falco’s situation so that the Titans surrounding him do not activate. But that may be the only way Zeke will live long enough to carry out his plan! Even for Falco, it’s difficult to see Zeke jeopardise his plan. He’s already made so many sacrifices in the name of his cause.

While an injured Eren moved closer to Zeke, the Marleyans rushed to ensure that Zeke was dead, fearing that if he wasn’t, he’d use his Scream to turn half of the Eldian force into pure titans.
