Attack on Titan Season 2 - Episode 2 Discussion

Recommended Posts

So in episode 2 of Attack on Titan Season 2, following on from that rather gruesome scene in the previous episode...




Titans are spotted within Wall Rose (the second outermost wall after Wall Maria) causing Sasha and Connie to scurry to warn other nearby districts on horseback – WITHOUT any of their tactical gear. @_@ (this group was isolated in this outer region due to suspected titans among them)


Armin, Mikasa and Eren discuss the integrity of the wall. Thinking back on the Annie incident, he hypothesises that the walls could be made of hardened titan skin – allowing the possibility of titans being able to hide within the walls. And it seems Hanji has reached the same conclusion after looking at a chunk of crystal using a microscope.


Under Erwin’s direction, a group of scouts set off on an expedition, with Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Hanji, Levi and Pastor Nick in a carriage. Hanji then shares her findings about the titans in the wall with the others along with Pastor Nick’s reluctance to talk, and…. Eren reacts strongly to this despite his previous injuries.




The second half of the episode then focuses on Sasha who makes it to a village. It is empty, but she manages to find a child survivor...




...and also works against the odds to get her to safety with no tactical equipment. Sasha also gets flashbacks about her father and early scout training sessions.



The episode ends with Connie arriving at his village, and seeing an immobilised titan laying on his house.


I liked this episode, as we really got to see a deeper look at Sasha other than her eating food from the first season - or aka potato girl (infamous during her training session).
