The world of The attack of the Titans has never been more dangerous, with the lines between right and wrong even more blurred as Eren Jaeger attempts to enact his ‘euthanasia plan’, which he hopes will eradicate the Titan power. As this is the final season of the animated series, no character is safe and the opening salvo of this second half gives us a glimpse of Levi and Zeke’s current state following their explosive encounter. with each other.
When we last saw Levi and Zeke, the scout captain was holding the Beast Titan in his human form by strapping him to a Thunder Spear, threatening to eradicate him if he tried to escape. Unfortunately for Levi, Zeke took this chance and detonated the explosive which fractured his own body, but also caught the Survey Corps captain in the blast. As Hange is held captive by the Jaegerists, Eren’s followers who currently have Zeke’s back, they stumble onto the scene and find both the Beast Titan and the captain of the Scout Regiment in completely fine condition.
For Levi, the blast left him horribly injured, with a number of his fingers ripped from his body, along with other body parts that could cause problems for current members of the Scout Regiment who did not fall behind. Eren. With Hange thinking quickly, she is able to grab hold of Levi and escape the Jaegerists, jump into a nearby river, and swim to freedom to fight another day.
For Zeke, we essentially see him grotesquely being born from within another Titan, which the Beast Titan has summoned to help heal him. As the Jaegerists rush to Zeke’s side, Eren’s brother hints that he met a mysterious young girl who helped heal his wounds using the sand under his body. With the Beast Titan now cured, it’s only a matter of time before he rejoins his brother and proves himself a traitor to Marley’s forces, once again dividing the forces of The attack of the Titans.
