The attack of the Titans never hesitated to kill his heroes. Some of the anime’s best fighters have died in the line of duty, and season four has eliminated some major players so far. This week, The attack of the Titans picked a few more players, and those deaths might just be some of the darkest yet.
After all, it’s one thing to watch Titans take down humans. It’s a totally different thing to watch humans turn around in this dystopian minefield. The attack of the Titans gave one of its heroes the dishonor of committing murder, and it’s as hard to watch as one would expect.
This moment was simply 10/10

Ultimately, the job falls to Connie as he and Armin attempt to keep the boat from the dock in one piece. The couple manage to convince their old friends Daz and Samuel that they are on their side. However, things take a turn when Armin is shot by Samuel, and both Yeagerists lament how they have been betrayed.
Connie is unable to resolve the situation peacefully, and when Armin begins to wake up from his injury, things take a turn. Our hero remembers some dark words from Bertholdt about his bloody hands, and Connie shoots Daz moments later. He continues to shoot Samuel repeatedly, and Connie can only cry as he covers his hands in blood.
It’s far from the first time Connie has seen death, but it’s the most personal. The young soldier had to kill two former allies to stop Eren, but no amount of reasoning can absolve Connie of his actions. He has a direct understanding of why Reiner and Bertholdt turned on their comrades all those years ago. And no matter what happens with Eren, it’s a mission that Connie can’t come back from.
