No Reiner Braun will not die in season 4 of Attack On Titan

What happens to Reiner at the end of Attack on Titan?

But at the end of Attack on Titan, Reiner Braun did not die and managed to survive with the remnants of humanity such as Annie, Armin, Gabi, Falco and many others after the devastating fight with Eren and Ymir in the “The War of Paradis Arc”.

In Attack on Titan final season Reiner, Annie and Pieck together managed to hold off the Centipede (Source of all living matter, which gave Ymir the power of Founder) from reattaching itself back with Eren. In contrast, Armin and Mikasa were fighting off Eren simultaneously, and Reiner, Annie, Pieck and Jean were trying their best to stop the Centipede to attach itself with Eren.

Finally, after the battle, Reiner managed to stay alive this time, and after Mikasa decapitated Eren’s head, the Powers of Titans were removed from the world. Everybody returned to their human form again. As a result, all the Eldians also returned to their normal form again.

After recovering to his normal form, Reiner recalled the last conversation he had with Eren and started mourning for Eren’s loss.

Then Reiner was soon greeted by his mother afterwards, who also managed to survive Eren’s wrath.

Reiner revealed to her mother that he no longer had the power of Armored Titan on him. Her mom seemed happy after hearing, but soon Marley soldiers arrived and threatened Reiner told him to prove whether he still had the power of the Armored Titan.

But, Armin intervened and explained that as Eren has been defeated, the Titan power has gone for good now, and the Titans now don’t cease to exist. All the subjects of Ymir, who were previously turned into Titans, returned to their normal human form as well.

Three years after Eren’s death, we saw the remnants of the outside world decide on a peace talk with Paradis, and they sailed towards Paradis Island to discuss the significance.

Although Reiner, Jean and Annie don’t believe there will ever be peace between both nations, Armin is confident that he will convince the outside world for peace.

What happened to Ymir’s Curse after Eren was defeated? And will it affect Reiner anyway from now on?

As you all know by now, in Attack On Titan, there is a curse called Curse of Ymir, i.e. whoever yields the power of one of the nine titan shifters will only live for 13 years. This curse is known as the Curse of Ymir.

But when Reiner got the powers of Armored Titan, he was just 12 years old and was given as part of Marley’s Warrior Program.

During the war in Paradis Arc, Reiner’s age was approximately 21 years, so approximately Reiner had lived nine years with the Armoured Titan’s powers. Therefore, he had four more years to live anyway.

But once Eren was defeated, the Titan’s powers from the world were obliterated, and therefore “The Curse of Ymir” was also did not cease to exist.

So, therefore, that is the reason why Reiner will continue to live, signifying The Curse of Ymir will not affect him or anyone else who had previously held the powers of one of the nine Titan shifters. The list includes Armin, Annie, Falco, and Pieck currently.
