    youd think the rear guard would be mixed with the front lines. otherwise the titans advancing further is essentially assured. coalscing around the nobility is sickening

    Main characters in Life/Death scenarios always pull through or receive power ups, Shingeki no Kyojin is no exception.

    or he's not actually the main character...

    or he can grow limbs!

    or they can make awesome robotic parts (which makes me wonder why they still use old style canons)

    pay no mind, i'm just rambling

    in any case, i can't wait to see how this one turns out, no asspulls pls

    [sp]Well yeah the dad, how he was a scientist and had a basement that is supposedly the key to solving this Titan issue. Him injecting his son isn't for no reason, so I don't think Eren turning to a Titan can be considered an ass pull, I believe Isayama planned something as important as that before hand, especially since it plays so much significance later on.

    I guess you could argue that it could've been more foreshadowed, but its definitely not an ass pull, IMO. But if it is, then its a well done one, so it doesn't matter to me much either way.[/sp]

    Spoiler:
    ^Yea i agree its not a ass pull.

    Although seeing eren get eaten i thought maybe Armin would be the main character which freaked me out. As Eren is boss.

    When they were all gathered, talking about who could get the most titan kills, I thought they were going to slaughter them and save the town.

    Then the first giant they meet JUMPS at them, I flinched when I saw that. This whole time I thought they were slow, clumsy, and cumbersome. Instead, their quick and agile. Did not see that coming at all. Also, I was hoping to see what happens when a titan goes down, instead, the team gets slaughtered. That was very surprising. Was not expecting that. Nope.

    WOW

    didnt even enjoy the series that much..until THIS episode

    im sure everyone shared my sentiment but....ARMIN U $@%@%#@%@##...im sure most of u were also screamng "HELP HIM U DUMBASS" during the last minute.

    i guess eren is not the main character, its his sis, and armin eventually.

    shits crazy...this is what would likely happened in real life



    manga readers PLEASE dont spoil it or even hint at it, i beg u.

    Just had to know Franz would die off after telling Hannah he would protect her. D: But oh man, that end. Of course crap had to go down when Mikasa isn't around.

    Wow, what a crazy episode. Just marathoned all 5 in a row since it was AotM and I have no regrets.

    This seems really interesting as so many twists are thrown at you. I don't know how Eren will operate now but I think if he survives he'll have metal gear or something.

    My other idea and maybe it's a bit of a leap but since the Titans have regenerating capabilities that Erin will be able to utilize consider he is inside of the Titan. He'll somehow avoid the digestive system and get his arm and leg back.

    No spoilers guys.

    Yeah...certainly was not expecting that shit to happen. Either this is some kinda crazy dream sequence or simulation...or...shit iono...that key his father gave him does something? Whatever happens though, if Eren lives...my GOD that'll be a massive asspull.

    Beginning to think people don't know what an "asspull" is. :tomasulk
