Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 18 Spoilers

There are some massive moments from episode 17 that still need to be addressed, and ‘Attack on Titan’ season 4 episode 18 — titled ‘Sneak Attack/Deception’ — will most likely shed answers on some of these issues. First and foremost, ever since Zeke detonated the thunder spear, Levi’s fate has hung in the balance. Although he was in a bad shape previously, Hange did not let Floch check Levi’s pulse, indicating that the Captain is still alive, even if he is in utter turmoil. Naturally, episode 18 could finally put this matter to bed.

While Levi has been the talk of the town, there is also the fact that Zeke survived the explosion. How? Who is the mysterious woman that saved his life, and what are the paths he claims to have seen? How does any of this tie into the larger picture? Well, these are all questions that episode 18 may end up shedding some light on.

Another protagonist from the series has suffered devastating blows in episode 17, and that is none other than Eren, who has been on the battlefield with Reiner’s Armored Titan, Pieck’s Cart Titan, and Galliard’s Jaw Titan. In fact, Reiner impales Eren with the very spikes that Eren created with his War Hammer Titan’s abilities, and it seems to be quite a serious injury (but not fatal). Episode 18 will most likely continue to show this battle between Reiner and Eren and how the latter will recover from it.

In fact, in response to the Marleyan ambush, many Eldians will also most likely take to the streets to defend their land. But will Armin and Mikasa come to Eren’s aid and rescue their childhood friend? Or will the two — who have been berated by a disillusioned Eren previously — finally take a stand against Eren and collaborate with the enemy forces? While there are many plot points that need to be tied up in the anime, you can check out a preview for episode 18 below.
