Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21 Recap
The previous episode shows a long recap of about five minutes. The tragic background of Ymir, the Founder, was explored in the most recent episode of Attack on Titan. The tale of Ymir’s background is told through a sequence of mostly silent pictures of her as a slave and then as King Fritz’s wife and sex slave.
The poignant story of Ymir begins with a heart-wrenching photo of Freida Reiss with Crista Lenz/Historia Reiss. As Historia inquires about how to be ladylike, Freida tells her the tale of Ymir, who was concerned about the well-being of others.
Due to her compassion for the poor creatures, Ymir releases some pigs one day. When the king learns of it, he threatens the slaves, telling them that if they don’t give the criminal’s identity, one of their eyeballs would be gouged out.
She is let free in the forest and the King’s warriors and dogs attack her. In a moment of sheer terror, she seeks refuge in a massive tree and falls down a hole. There, a creepy thing gets attached to her spine and she becomes a titan, the first Titan in human history.
The episode ends with Eren activating the Rumbling and him using some telepathic powers to communicate with all Subjects of Ymir. He tells them about his plans to destroy the world that hates them to save the people on Eldia.
