What to Expect from Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 22?  

In the next episode of Attack on Titan Season 4, Episode 22, we expect to see Eren freeing all the Subjects of Ymir of Paradis island back to their human form, who were previously turned into pure Titans by Zeke

With only one goal with his mind: to destroy the rest of the world, whoever thought of bringing down Paradis Island; in the next episode, we would also see the return of Falco as he is now the new inheritor of the Jaw Titan. And with all the Wall Titans Rumbling, Gabi and Reiner will look for Falco to make sure he is safe. 

On the other hand, the Yeagerists will find out that their Euthensia plan has failed. As we had told earlier, Yeagerists are mainly sided with Zeke, and their ultimate goal was to see the Euthanasia plan succeed.

But as Eren has now turned the tables, Yeagerists Yelena and others will probably face the wrath of Mikasa, Armin, Jean and Connie. 

Also, in the next episode, we will see the return of Annie Leonhart as with all the Wall Titan starting the rumble, we will see a big earthquake that will eventually break Annie’s hardening crystal and break her free.

Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21: How did Ymir inherit Titan’s powers? And how did Karl Fritz utilize it? 

In Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21, titled “From You, 2,000 Years Ago”, we see the memories of Ymir of how she managed to get the powers of the Founding Titan and also we saw how the coordinate works. 

Around 2000 years ago, Ymir was an Eldian who lived outside Paradis Island. After Karl Fritz attacked their village and burned it down, they enslaved all the villagers and brought them to Paradis. 

One day someone from the enslaved person had freed all the Pigs from the Pig farm when King Karl Fritz asked why it did? All of them pointed fingers at Ymir. 

After that, Karl tortured Ymir first by gauging her eye and then letting go of her to kill her with a bow arrow, but Ymir somehow managed to run and reach inside an unknown tree and fell in some giant sinkhole beneath. 

After she fell beneath the sinkhole, some mysterious spine-like creature attached itself to Ymir and turned her into the Founding Titan. 

After witnessing this, Karl Fritz decided to keep Ymir as his slave as he thought he could use Ymir to fight his wars and build an Empire of Eldia. 

Ymir did what he could do to please Karl Fritz. But Karl Fritz didn’t stop there. He forced Ymir to bear his children, and both of them had three children Maria, Rose, and Sheena. 

One day, some soldiers from Karl’s warrior unit tried to kill Karl, but Ymir tried to save Karl and ended up taking the spear on her chest and died. 

After she died, Karl Fritz cut her body in pieces and forced her children to cannibalize Ymir’s body as he thought the power of Ymir should be passed on as this power was the only way to make Eldia Empire powerful. 

Also, when Karl died, he instructed all his children to reproduce more children and passed on Ymir’s powers to them, and that’s how the Titan’s powers were passed on throughout the 2000 years, and the nine titan shifters got created.

How does the Coordinate work?

The Coordinate is the place where Ymir resided after she died. She here has a role to play. Ymir moulds the Titan with the soil from Coordinate whenever anyone turns into a Titan

One more catch is that the Coordinate is where all the paths converge into one meaning the Founding Titan resides in the Coordinate where all the subjects of Ymir or Nine Titans Shifter’s paths cross. 

And anyone who wields the Coordinate power will have powers like erasing all the memories of subjects of Ymir or whatever the Coordinate power wielder wishes. 

For E.g. Zeke wished in his Ethunsia plan to take away the reproductive powers from all the subjects of Ymir. 

But he didn’t have the powers to do so, so he told Ymir (Coordinate wielder). But now, after lending all Ymir’s abilities, Eren can do whatever he wants. 

E.g., Eren used Coordinate’s powers to reconnect with all the subjects of Ymir and told them what he wanted to do with the Founding Titan‘s powers).

Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21 Ending Explained: How did Eren manage to Convince Ymir to lend him the Founding Titan’s powers? 

At the coordinate, when Eren and Zeke returned from Grisha Yeager’s memories, Eren revealed he was already aware of what the future holds the first time he got in contact with Historia

Later on, he manipulated his father in showing memories far beyond the future to manipulate him into killing the Reiss family and taking away the Founding’s Powers. 

Grisha knew he wouldn’t be able to use Founding’s powers; hence he that time entrusted that to Eren, which was exactly what Eren had planned. 

After getting to know what Eren had on his mind, Zeke tells Ymir to take away the reproduction capabilities of all the Ymir subjects. And Ymir goes to the coordinate to fulfil Zeke’s request.

Eren now breaks the chains and runs towards Ymir to stop her from doing that and catches Ymir from behind and tells her that she is not enslaved anymore and need not obey Zeke or any Royal Family member’s orders anymore.

Further, Eren reveals Ymir is not a god. She is just a human, and she doesn’t have to do this anymore, and Eren can put an end to this world and says she is the one who led him here in the Coordinate. 

After witnessing Eren saying all these to Ymir, Zeke runs towards them and tells Ymir that he is of royal blood and she must obey his wish. 

But after listening to Eren’s words, Ymir recalls all the oppression she had faced earlier and gives her Founding Titan’s powers to Eren. 

This results in the three walls, Maria, Rose, and Sheena, being shattered as the Colossal Wall Titans start the rumbling. Eren ultimately holds his ultimate 1000 meter Founding Titan form. 

What did Eren address to all Ymir subjects after getting the Founding Titan’s powers in Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 21? 

After inheriting the Ymir’s Founding Titan’s powers, Eren frees all the colossal wall titans from the three walls Maria, Rose, and Sheena. After that, he uses Founding Titan’s powers to connect with all the Subjects of Ymir. 

He states, “My name is Eren Yeager, and I’m using Founding Titan’s powers to connect with all the Subjects of Ymir. I have freed all the Wall Titans, and they will continue to march on! I was born in Paradis Island, and other nations want all the people of Paradis Island to die, so till the time the world outside the Paradis exists, The Wall Titans will keep on marching, putting an end to all the lives except the people of Paradis.”
