Doubt it considering Historia is blonde just like "Rosa" while Rod and that Woman are both Black Haired.

What was up with the old dude who tried to touch Armin?

Really hope this arc progresses at a decent pace, this chapter felt rather underwhelming compared to the previous one. While I'm honestly not too keen on a revolution storyline, it could turn out to be interesting if the "antagonists" are compelling enough.

Historia honestly does feel pretty bland without Ymir around, but it is intentional so I suppose this arc will see her develop her relationships with the others from scratch.

I hope Eren gets an active role in this arc, I find that the series is as its best when he's directly in the action. Given that her motivation is protecting him, Mikasa also shines much better as a character when Eren is actively participating in the events, without him around she's generally overshadowed completely by Levi.

Sasha using the bow and arrow was pretty cool, glad to see some elements from her short side-story arc are being utilized. Hoping to see more development in the supporting cast.

Connie holding a grudge against Monkey Trouble would be great to see. Personally hoping for him and Eren to interact a bit more now that they both lost their families to the Titans.

I can't see this arc going by entirely without a fight with Titans, so I wonder if there's the possibility of more Titan-shifters within the walls. Unless Monkey Trouble himself shows up and creates more Titans or commands the ones that make up the wall to awaken and kill everyone. Would be a twist to this apparent revolution arc, for the thing everyone is apparently fighting for control of to be completely destroyed instead. That might not happen now, but it does feel like something that might happen in the future.

The lady in Historia's flashback could alter memories of humans (assuming Historia is 100% human) apparently. It's very likely that this is connected to Eren's own memory loss. It could be a power of the coordinate (which Eren used on himself intentionally or unintentionally), or Eren's father may share a similar ability (though it feels unlikely given that he had to inject Eren with something that gave him the coordinate).

Something I've been wondering about though, why did Reiner, Annie and Bertoldt guess that Eren held the coordinate upon seeing him in Titan form though? Was it because of his appearance (his pointy ears make hims slightly resemble Monkey Trouble, indicating a possible similarity in Titan-class or familial relation), or was it because of the Titans attacking him (he commanded them to fight him, and the other cases of Titans attacking shifters were provoked by the shifters or Eren)?

In fighting is a terrible idea after just being faced with a foreign enemy fighting a war on 2 fronts has never went bad at all .

Im kinda sad that the author is going that way.... I would like more if he concentrated on the titan matter a bit more... maybe for the first time see the warrior tribe city... maybe what is RBY doing right now (since annie is still frozen)

about that woman... well she has some ability to input and delete memories it seems... maybe she was the previous coordinate host (thats why eren saw her in that mirror when she was brushing her hair... kinda see with her own eyes kinda got a bit of her memories).... maybe she is hidden inside that basement sleeping

maybe that woman in reality is "erens real mother" as she looks really like eren... and maybe eren is natural born titan-shifter.... since maybe when historia mentioned she wants to be like her...she in reality was a shifter herself then gave birth to eren (who to has the same ability and maybe the coorinate went from her to him [or both have it]) but she wanted him to live a "normal life" (like historia had) so she changed his memories by deleting herself from it along with his knowladge of beign a shifter.....and the thing father gave eren is a medicine to slowly release the memories so he can get to the basement to learn everything

just a theory since its interesting what this woman looked like eren...she had this strange power (like historia eren cant remember his dreams)... for now she is a big mistery...time will tell... but I just dont want the revolution to take place for too long ;/

better idea is just go to the basement learn stuff or at least travel that way be it mikasa only with eren as less people less danger of beign spot on (and both know the location)

Before defeating titans, they gotta get rid of the corrupt government that is just sitting in the back enjoying luxury and being cowards while they sacrifice 1000's of people for their own selfish needs. I wonder who will be the head of the government after the rebellion though.

Maybe that "head of the military" guy? He seems quite intent to make sure that humanity survives and showed quite some authority during the trial (although he didn't seem to bother about people screaming left and right during the trial and the MP even almost starting to use a rifle in the courtroom)

Btw who is that guy at the end? Is that Dot Pixis? He looks quite similar at least, but he does look different compared to the early chapters.

Probably because of an art shift.

Well I suppose it is inevitable that the Survey Corps will have to take care of the government that is not helping at all.

Going to derail the thread a bit here but I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned earlier. The last 3 or so chapters look incredibly different from the earlier ones, the art still has that distinct look but the art itself looks much cleaner and more refined now.

Anybody thinking the big "Answer" is that everything is a cycle of Ouroboros?

Or in other words, Eternal Return.
The concept that the Universe is a self recurring cycle across time and space, with everything within recurring in similar fashion, by physical concept not in a supernatural way but at point Z, every being returns to their same body in Point A and relives the events until Point Z is reached again and the cycle begins anew.

Friedrich Nietzsche: What if some day or night a demon were to steal your soul after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you "This life as you now live it and have lived, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and joy and every thought and every sight and everything unutterably small or great in your life will have to return to you, all in the same sequence and succession, even this moment I myself.Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus?"

Symbolized by the Serpent that bites it's own tail also appearing the Norse Myth per Jormungandr who encircles the world.

In a sense, what if THAT are actually these "Memories" of Eren that everything happened before and that may be why in Chapter 1 Eren dreams about Mikasa and "see you on the other side" and "To you in 2000 years".

What if that Black Haired Woman = Eren in a different Cycle which is why he has her memories and this current Cycle = "The Great Escape" from it and Grisha found a way to do so.
Thus, I'm also saying that Black Haired Woman meant she with "Forget about me again until the next time we meet", she knows the cycle begins anew.

Is the woman from Historia's flashback the same one Eren saw last chapter? I can never be sure with Isayama's samefaces.

I agree. It's not like the have the manpower for brute force to get the answers they want, so creating a revolution is probably their best option if they want to progress any further. They can't attack the Titans randomly, and they don't know where Ymir, etc., went, and Eren patching the wall isn't happening, so this is the only thing they can do for now.

As for Eren, Historia, and these flashbacks/dreams....I have no clue what to think anymore. The art always suffers from similar faces, but the woman Eren saw in the mirror was uncannily like him. Now Historia sees her too, in the same kind of dreams he has? It's just eerie.

This drip feed of details is maddening. I think it's starting to hurt the story.

Aside from Ymir, Eren is the first person to accept Historia as she is (and also being immune to her goddess mode). That may or may not have turned her from lesbian into bi

As for Mikasa... she is still in denial probably, thinks that they are "family", so Historia is probably save for now anyway.
