Wow. No recaps at the beginning! Eren’s friends must finally choose which group to they would join. The Survey Corps commander seemed to have a hidden motive behind his introduction speech.
Jean gets the spotlight in this episode. The episode really got the emotional drama behind his choosing of which group he would join and his character development was nicely established in this episode. I’m really happy to see how much Jean has changed from back then when he started the academy; Marco really had a huge hand in his change of character. Mikasa calling Levi chibi and Sasha getting lines are a welcome bonus.
This was a great “calm before the storm” episode. The awesome shit starts next week.
