WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Attack on Titan Season 4, Episode 12, “Guides,” which now airs on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.

The last season of Attack on Titan It’s been on something of a hiatus since Eren Jeager launched his shocking attack right in Marley’s heart. Episode 12, “Guides”, however, marks a turning point.

Eren made it clear to Hange in Episode 11 that he could realistically free himself whenever he wanted using the power of the War Hammer Titan he acquired from Marley. Practically, however, he couldn’t risk drawing so much attention to himself. Eren was probably worried about leading the Scouts into a battle that he wasn’t sure he could win or he didn’t. want to fight the likes of Mikasa and Armin for the sake of their already strained friendship. Either way, as Pixis reveals in Episode 12, Eren received a visit from the Anti-Marleyan Volunteer Leader, Yelena, who likely spread the Jeagerists’ plan to him. The explosion the sect used to assassinate Dhalis Zachary in his own office would have served as too convenient a distraction for a Titan transformation, allowing Eren to escape without a fight.

At the end of the episode, Eren is with Floch, the key spokesman for the Jeagerists, and his band of followers on the outskirts of town, who are committed to bringing Eren and Zeke together to carry out whatever Zeke is up to. (We can assume this is to start Rumbling, but in reality, we don’t know for sure anymore.) Meanwhile, in the city, Hange prepares to also travel to the secret place where Zeke is being held by Levi to ensure both of their safety. As he saddles up, the Commander reflects on Yelena’s as yet unknown role in all of this; specifically, his strange insistence on granting the island’s Marleyans the right to work in places like restaurants. Only What Hange wonders this, Gabi, Falco and the Blouse family arrive at Niccolo’s restaurant, as per his invitation in a previous episode, united in grief for Sasha.


Attack on Titan fans shouldn’t see any of these cases as a coincidence. Yelena has been playing such a subtle game since her arrival on the Island, her movements have been virtually indecipherable and almost undetectable until now. Of course, there are certain elements that are probably out of their control, such as Gabi and Falco’s presence at Niccolo’s establishment and the Marleyan warrior Peick sneaking onto the island. But, whether the characters know it or not, viewers should always be careful when the main players of a series start gathering in a place like this. The pieces of the board are moving towards each other, and it is only a matter of time before someone checksmated them.
