Last week, I’d thought we’d finally gotten past explaining everything obvious and fighting internal struggles over whether to fight or to keel over and die.
But nope! They were just saving all of last week’s exposition and whining to use as flashbacks in this episode!
We start by having everyone gather around a table and explain the plan. The plan which has already been executed. (Not that it would have been any less pointless had they explained before executing the plan.)
Then we cut to the tunnel Eren and friends are trapped in from last episode. Eren watched Annie transform into a titan and kill his friends with his own eyes. They are sitting in a cave waiting for her to crush them to death. And he doesn’t know whether they should fight her.
Dude, come on. This is just ridiculous.
The fight scenes were still awesome, as usual. Too bad we had to cut so much fighting to make room for flashbacks and emo Eren.
