The torture was skipped, after all. I would have liked to see people's reaction to a certain device.

Anyway, the protagonists are facing their biggest crisis yet. It's them against everyone else. Reeves jr might be able to clear the whole thing up, if he doesn't get killed first that is. Erwin has bigger plans than just getting released though. He wants Historia to become Queen to clear corruption and unveil the conspiracy within the walls.

Poor Christa/Historia and those childhood traumas.

So Eat Eren for his powers...poor princess Eren.

Amazing chapter, the anti information control themes were amazing.

I feel bad for Historia. She's had a pretty bad childhood, and I don't think it's gonna get any better for her.

I do wonder why they made such a big deal of the secret king's bastard child. Even more so of her mother.

They explain the Reiss family are the real royal family of the country while the current King is a pretender and possibly a puppet king for the conspirators. If anyone knew the truth, they would have use Historia/Christa as a figurehead to over throw the current government which the latter won't like it since it means the end of their corrupt rule.

Man, Historia childhood was sucking really hard. Douchebag dad and bitch mother and a whole bunch of cold-blooded guys who got no problem to cut her throat. Poor girl deserves some happiness, albeit I fear she won't find it as ruler (or as puppet of the military commander) of this kingdom.

Reiss is the king masquerading as a minor noble. For reasons. OK, whatever. I can understand why they'd want to keep her on hand in case they need a royal. I don't understand why they killed her mother or sent her to the corps.

It's not like anyone would care if a minor noble banged the maid or had a child with her.

I'd say it's also about information control. The less people know about Reiss, the less it can be used against the userpers.

I don't think they were keeping Historia on hand. I think Reiss was keeping her a secret but got found out and had to persuade them to leave her alone by sending her to the military.

The scene showing the death of Historia's mother took place after the fall of Wall Maria. The situation must have changed because of this.

While all these story development and infodump about the background of some of the characters are interesting, all I want to see is what that damn key opens in the basement in eren's home in shigashina.

It's been 6 years!

Lol, I completely forgot about that whole basement thing. I wonder if we'll ever get an answer.

Kenny doesn't appear to be the type to let many loose ends slide so I'm guessing Reiss' overall standing gave him enough clout to sentence "Christa" to what quite easily could have/should have been a life of death fighting Titans...

Also maybe Kenny has a softer spot for children as its being positioned that he took care of Levi and (maybe?) Misaka...So maybe Kenny is about the kids...Mofo certainly ain't bout the adults lol...

Kenny's never met Mikasa. He just happens to have the same surname as her.

Mikasa's biography isn't a secret. She lived with her parents until they were killed by bandits, then she lived with Eren and his parents until the fall of Wall Maria, then she lived with other orphans (including Eren and Armin) until they could enlist. Then she was a cadet, living in the barracks, then a scout, living wherever duty took her. Where does Kenny fit in that?

Jean's life more of a mystery than hers. Maybe he lived with Kenny?

How do you know Kenny never visited when she still lived with her parents? I agree he never took care of her, but we can't say for certain he's never met her.

No way he just happens to have the same surname as her either. They're obviously related.

OK, so that's vaguely possible.

I didn't say they weren't related. I just meant she didn't get her name from him.
