The last season of The attack of the Titans saw many casualties as the nation of Marley and the soldiers of the Scout Regiment clash for the last time, but it also revealed many secrets. With the latest episode of the anime series seeing Eren’s head knocked from his shoulders, he and his brother Zeke managed to make contact that transported them to a mysterious new location that harbors beams of light known as name of “The Paths”.
Warning. This explanation of paths will be going into slight spoiler territory, so if you haven’t caught up with the Attack On Titan anime, you might want to steer clear.
Ymir is the little girl who launched the power of the Titans, having discovered the ability to transform into a large monster and remaining in the realm of the “Paths” hundreds of years after her transformation into the Founding Titan. With this power placing the Eldian race in a position of authority over the nation of Marley and its people, as well as the people of the world as a whole, the citizens of the world have faced conflict for generations, while also having to do in the face of terrifying mastodons.
Now that the majority of the Eldians are trapped on the Isle of Paradise, the fourth season saw things change drastically, as the Scout Regiment uncovered the secrets of their world and Eren launched a full-scale attack on the Marley people. Now that Eren and Zeke are ahead of Ymir, it seems their paths have diverged considerably, with the younger Jaeger revealing that he doesn’t want to sterilize his race to end the Titans’ power but has another, and can -be far darker, plan in mind.
The last season of The attack of the Titans was anything but predictable, throwing many curveballs at viewers, and now that the paths have been introduced and the Jaeger siblings are face to face with Ymir, expect more surprises to come in this second half of the last burst.
