Attack On Titan has put everyone on the Isle of Paradise to the test throughout the dark franchise’s history, and it looks like an upcoming installment will hint at a return to the early moments of the series created by Hajime Isayama. As this is the final season of the popular anime series, fans should expect major developments as well as major casualties as the war between Paradis, Marley and Eren’s new forces in the Jaegerists continues to heat up.
Episode 80 of The attack of the Titans has the title “To You, 2,000 Years Ago”, which directly correlates to the series’ first episode, “To You, in 200 Years: The Fall of Shiganshina”, throughout the series, both the Scout Regiment and the viewers learned about the power of the Titans, one of which seems to link the power-wielders of the Thirteen Titans through time itself. Eren himself got glimpses of his future as well as glimpses of the past through the eyes of those who wielded the power of the Attack Titan before him.
One of the greatest examples of this was through a character named Eren Kruger, an undercover agent within Marley’s army who worked to ensure that the Eldian Restorers could achieve their ultimate goal. Kruger eventually met Eren’s father, long before the current Attack Titan was born, and helped stop Grisha from turning into a raging, mindless monster. While chatting with Grisha, “The Owl,” casually mentions that he needs to save “Armin and Mikasa,” having no idea where the thought came from, but fans knowing it was a result of his bond with Eren in the future.
In the final episode of the final season, Eren tries to get in touch with his brother Zeke in order to harness the power of the Founding Titan, but both the Attack Titan and the Beast Titan fell thanks to shells fired by the army of Marly. As Armin and company decide to help Eren in his endeavors, the series’ action continues to heat up.
