Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21 Recap
After Grisha tells Zeke that he won’t get what he wants from now on and that things will only go the way Eren goes, the regretful father confesses that the future is full of suffering. Therefore, he asks his son to stop Eren, whose future memories terrify him. As the half-brothers return to the mysterious land surrounding the Coordinate, Zeke finally begins to connect the dots completely and realizes how his brother used selective future memories to influence their father’s decision at the King of Wall’s Base.
Zeke wastes no time and asks Ymir to make her subjects barren. Once the order is given, Ymir heads straight for the coordinate, but Eren frees herself from his shackles, determined to stop her from carrying out the aforementioned orders. Two thousand years before the present events, the village of Ymir was conquered and razed to the ground by the Eldians. The natives were then enslaved and treated harshly under the new king’s reign. One day some pigs escape from a pen and people blame Ymir; she gets to run, so she can be hunted down by the Eldians as punishment.
Shortly afterwards, Ymir is seriously injured and falls into a pool after entering a tree with a gap. There, she is unknowingly fused with a mysterious, spine-like creature and turns into a Titan. However, she does not turn against the king, despite the horrors she must endure. According to his orders, Ymir crushes the Marleyans and helps the Eldians amass wealth and improve the infrastructure of the growing kingdom by building roads and bridges.
The king is so impressed by her devotion to the material progress of his kingdom that he has children with her. However, 13 years after she gains power from Titan, Ymir dies, and her daughters Sina, Maria and Rose eat their mother’s corpse. Ymir’s powers are eventually divided into nine Titans, who are then inherited by her subjects in the following centuries. Meanwhile, she continues to serve the wishes of the royal family in the Coordinate.
In the present time, when Eren catches up with Ymir, he begs her for her powers. He reminds her that she is neither a god nor an enslaved person, but a human being who has the choice to end the ages of pain and pain. Eren’s words touch Ymir and she is moved to tears. Moments later, the real-world antihero is turned into the Founding Titan and the rumblings begin.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21 End: Why did Eren start messing around?
The Marleyans have long been determined to acquire the Founding Titan from the Eldians for their own military exploits. In doing so, they also long for the extermination of the people who live behind the walls, whose ancestors unleashed death and destruction upon the rest of the world thousands of years ago. Before they succeed, however, Eren acquires the Founding Titan from his father, who in turn stole it from Frieda Reiss of the royal family.
Over the next few years, the Maryleans slowly begin to understand the nature of the threat looming over their heads. Therefore, they start to take a step ahead in advance and Willy Tybur plays a crucial role in that. In a ceremony with some of the most influential people from around the world, he speaks openly about the threat Eren Yaeger poses and declares war on Paradis Island.
Eren, long expecting such an action, kills Willy moments later and leads a surprise attack on Liberio with the help of the Survey Corps. It gives the Eldians much-needed time to regroup as the Allies prepare for a war of annihilation on Paradis Island. While Willy Tybur deliberately invites Eren’s wrath to force other nations to join Marley in their war, the Founding Titan’s keeper doesn’t really have much of a choice.
Even if Tybur hadn’t declared all-out war, the fate of the Eldians would still have been cruel, as Marley and other nations would likely have continued to compete for the untapped resources on Paradis Island, along with the forces of Titans. Ymir’s subjects are said to have become entangled in an endless cycle of war, and because of their primitive technologies, they would have been brutally exterminated.
While Zeke came up with the idea of genetically neutering the entire Eldish population to end the incessant bloodshed and war, Eren, pretending to agree, was never concerned with it. From an early age, the protagonist has violently fought back against anyone who has tried to trample on his freedom, and even as an adult; he hasn’t changed. So to make sure the outside world never kills another Eldian, he starts messing around so he can crush every last enemy of the Paradis Island for good.
