Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 20 Recap
In the previous episode, we got peeks into the big moments of Grisha’s life. Right from the moment Eren is born, we saw how Grisha cherished his son and loved him, which made Zeke very jealous and bitter. It was obvious that Grisha had learned of his mistakes from his bad parenting with his first son and was making amends.
However, he was still looking for ways to fulfill his mission by using his status as a doctor to get more info about the Royal family. Zeke told Eren that this proves how selfish Grisha was as a father by putting his family at risk like the last time.
When Grisha found the real Royal Family’s hiding place, he could not bring himself to complete his mission of stealing the Founding Titan. After this, he went and hugged Eren out of love and helplessness because he realized how weak he was in coming to a decision.
