Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 19 Recap
After Zeke’s fall from the wall, with his fate unknown to those near him, Eren becomes very violent. While trying to reach his half-brother, Galliard’s Jaw Titan bites his leg and appears to eat it. However, the Founding Titan uses hardening on his hands and violently smashes into Jaw Titan’s skull. As Galliard appears to be clutching at his life, Reiner’s armored titan attacks Eren and struggles with his titan to the ground while begging Galliard not to give up. Suddenly, Zeke’s Beast Titan wakes up and is about to turn people who have consumed his spinal fluid into Titans when Colt and Falco run towards him, closely followed by Gabi, begging him to wait.
Colt states that he should not involve children in the conflict and should allow Falco to run far enough so that his scream does not hit him. Unfortunately, his attraction falls on deaf ears when Zeke’s Beast Titan lets out a cry for help to turn Falco into a Titan. Colt, who has refused to leave his brother, is seriously injured and dies moments later. Meanwhile, all the Eldish army men now turned into Titan begin to attack the Marleyan soldiers and turn the whole war on its head. Meanwhile, Zeke tells Falco to attack Reiner’s armored titan. Wanting him to inherit his Titan, Reiner has Falco attack his neck and has accepted his fate.
But in a strange turn of events, Galliard appears out of nowhere and is deliberately spotted by Falco, sacrificing himself so he can inherit the Jaw Titan. Meanwhile, when Zeke is busy taking control of the ground, General Magath attacks him with another Anti-Titan Mobile Artillery assault and immediately afterward begins to celebrate, believing he’s knocked him out for good. However, it turns out that Zeke has just mimicked Pieck’s trick and is waiting for Eren by hiding under the Beast Titan’s carcass. His half-brother is the first to notice him and uses the Founding Titan’s hardening to freeze Reiner’s Armored Titan and runs to Zeke in human form.
For a moment, it looks like the stars are finally aligned so that Eren can inherit all of his Titan’s powers, but just as he’s about to reach him, Gabi decapitates him with an anti-Titan artillery rifle. Fortunately, all hope is not lost for Zeke as he brings Eren to the Coordinate after his head falls on his hands. He begs his half-brother to approach the young girl, who is actually Ymir Fritz, to take control of her powers and initiate the Eldian euthanasia plan. However, Eren refuses to comply and confesses that he only sided with him to gain the powers of the Founding Titan. But it turns out that Zeke was only testing his half-brother and reveals that he’s already gotten the founder’s powers for himself and has managed to nullify Fritz’s vow to renounce war.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 19 End: How did Zeke obtain the power of the Founding Titan? What happened to Karl Fritz’s vow to renounce war?
Long ago, Karl Fritz feared that the Power of Titans could be used by his successors for violence and destruction. So to make sure nothing like this ever happens, he makes a vow to renounce war with the Founding Titan. According to this statement, his successors can inherit his powers, but they can never be used for retribution, and if Marley becomes powerful enough to destroy Eldia, the people of Paradis Island must accept their fate. So when Zeke arrives in the Coordinate, he is bound by the same vow at the time.
However, after spending time with the founder in the unknown land, he managed to abolish Karl Fritz’s vow. If the people of royal blood tried to do something like Zeke, they would have failed because their reasoning would have been corrupted by the ideology of the first king. Fortunately, in the Coordinate, Zeke was not bound by the same constraints on his reasoning, and since Ymir has no will of his own, he easily managed to convince her with all his time in his hand and obtained the Founder’s powers.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 19 End: Is Eren Dead or Alive?
No, Eren does not die in ‘Attack on Titan’ Season 4 Episode 19 titled ‘Two Brothers’. Since Gabi decapitates Eren with the anti-Titan artillery rifle, it makes sense for fans to wonder how the antihero survives such a fatal attack. When he is about to die, Eren’s decapitated head falls into Zeke’s hand, activating the power of the Titan’s founder. By the time the antihero awakens from a long sleep in the Coordinate, Zeke has not only gained the power of the founder, but has effectively nullified Karl Fritz’s vow to renounce war.
However, it is important to understand that time passes very slowly in the Coordinate. After Zeke is badly injured after the thunder spear explosion in Season 4 Episode 15, he is actually rescued by Ymir in the Coordinate, who is slowly re-developing his body. It provides an essential insight that, despite serious injuries, Eldians can be rescued by Ymir if she so decides. So, despite being decapitated, reaching the Coordinate just before he dies may ultimately save Eren’s life.
His survival can also be confirmed by the manga of the same name, where it is clearly explained that he does not die at the hands of Gabi. Unfortunately, to fully understand Eren’s role in the drama that follows and how he influences the fate of the real world, you’ll have to wait for the upcoming episodes.
