Attack on Titan has been serializing new chapters for almost a decade now, and according to the creators, the end of the series is in sight. As the story is nearing its conclusion, old loose ends are being tied up to give it a sense of completion.
Chapter 125, titled “Sunset”, presents Connie with a tough choice: to save his mother trapped in a titan form he will have to lose his humanity.
In the start of the series, Connie’s hometown was reported to have been overrun by Titans. Oddly, there was a lot of damage, but no blood was found and none of the horses was missing. This raised the question: Where did the villagers go?
An immobile titan was found laying on Connie’s house, and he felt that it reminded him of his mother. We later found out that his hunch was dead on. The villagers had been converted into Titans and his mother’s transformed form was too weak to move.
Fast forward to the present, Falco Grice has been given the powers of the snapping Jaw titan. In the process, he unknowingly killed his brother, putting him in a dark place mentally. Now that Falco is under the control of the Survey Corps, Connie has the choice to swap his mother’s Titan form with Falco’s titan form.
Thus giving his mother the choice to revert back to her human form and regain normality. However, Falco is a good person and transferring the powers would go against Connie’s moral compass.
Chapter 126 will be released on the 8-9th of February and will hopefully shed light on Connie’s final decision.
About Attack on Titan:
Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by Titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings, and, worst of all, seem to do it for pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, which are even taller than the biggest Titans.
Fast forward to the present, and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren Jaeger and his sister Mikasa Ackerman witnessed something horrific as the city walls were destroyed by a Colossal Titan that appears out of thin air.
