Attack on Titan Season 1 Episode 10 Overview

Attack on titan season 1 episode 10
Eren inside his titan form

Both Garrison and Eren’s fellow cadets are taken aback by his effect on the movement. Armin resolves to risk his life and persuade the captain to change his mind in order to save Eren. Commander Pyxis, who wants to implement the strategy Armin has developed to close the gap in Wall Rose, arrives and ends the conflict, though.

Refuge

When they hear the sound of cannon fire followed by dense smoke at the opposite end of the wall, Jean and the others who are aware of Eren feel the weight of secret weight on them.

The others follow after Reiner rushes to assess the situation. Everyone watches in disbelief as Eren protects Mikasa and Armin from the cannon explosion, but the titan’s body perishes quickly due to his frailty. As they evaluate the situation, Captain Kitz instructs them to reload.

In the subsequent terror, Eren drags himself outdoors after shaking within the titan’s body. While still hidden by the titan’s vapor, he descends and looks to see whether his pals are alright. Now that Eren can recall his father’s basement, they might be able to find out more about him and the other titans. He berates him for hiding information that would have aided the scout unit in their struggle.

Mikasa advises him that the moment is not right. Eren decides to flee but has no idea how to do it. That time, as the cannon shot, he instinctively changed. To vanquish the other titans, he intends to shift once more, but Mikasa notices that he is getting worse. He asks them to go while he changes on his own, but Mikasa won’t go.

Last Resorts

After the guns have been reloaded, Captain Kitz is still unsure about what to do, so Armin comes up with a strategy. He takes into account his pals’ propensity for hazardous behavior. Then, Eren instructs Armin to attempt to persuade the garrison that they can utilize his powers because no one else can.

If he can’t accomplish it, their only option is to flee. He offers Armin fifteen seconds to make up his mind while pledging his faith in him since he depends on Armin’s judgment in even the most trying circumstances. Then Armin understands his sense of powerlessness was merely a mental construct and not anything his buddies could observe.

As he emerges from the smokescreen to speak with Kitz and his troops, Armin gets up and commands them to be less aggressive. Eren is not the enemy, he assures them, and they are prepared to report their findings. Kitz wants further evidence that he isn’t a threat, but Armin is adamant that it is unnecessary.

Eren was there to battle the titans with the same ferocity as the giant’s exhibit when pursuing humans, as many of them probably observed. The men’s attitude then changes in light of this clear reality. However, Kitz’s orders to launch a titanic assault have never made sense.

Armin’s Speech

When Armin understands the captain isn’t acting logically, he turns around, but his buddies still believe in him. He then salutes and turns to face the garrison, promising to sacrifice his life to stop the Titans. He advises collaborating with Eren’s Titan might to recapture the city for humanity’s honor, and he is ready to put his life on the line for this goal.

The captain is still not persuaded despite Kitz’s advisers now understanding the reasons behind his claim. Eren is preparing to flee as everyone gets set to fight, but Commander Pyxis stops Kitz’s arm.

Armin’s greeting is praised by Pyxis, who then directs Kitz to the reinforcements. He is open to hearing what the three have to say. The most important area, the south, is under the control of the eccentric Pyxis.

Pyxis overhears Eren talking about the basement and how important it could be to discover the secrets of the titans. He learns from Armin about the plan to have Eren move the boulder in Shinganshina in order to block off the damaged wall. Eren responds that he can if Pyxis wants him to. Eren acknowledges he is unsure whether he can, but because of the lives that are at risk, he makes the commitment.

Attack on Titan Season 1 Episode 10 Summary

Marco stops Daz
Marco stops Daz

Soldiers are placed on alert within the Walls. Daz, one of them, informs Marco that he is unable to continue fighting because his friends were consumed in front of him, and he can only be relieved that he would not follow in their footsteps. He pulls out his sword in an effort to put an end to it, but Marco stops him since he realises he could be the next person to pass away. Sasha yells in pain, complaining of a stomach ailment and demanding to go to the hospital while he attempts to calm him down by pointing out his troubles.

Christa and Ymir are asking Jean Kirschtein about Eren and Mikasa’s location after hearing the disturbance. According to regulations from the Garrison Regiment, Jean is not allowed to expose this knowledge. He also believes it would be prudent to keep Eren’s secret a secret because doing so would likely generate panic among the soldiers. A cannon shot is heard precisely at that time, and when Reiner, Bertholdt, and Annie realise it came from inside Wall Rose, they immediately hurry to the Wall, followed by Jean.

Woermann and Rico witness Eren’s powers

Mikasa and Armin discreetly observe as the Titan tries to move while being shielded by the skeleton of Eren’s incomplete Titan metamorphosis, greatly alarming Captain Kitz Woermann. He tells the men to wait as he prepares the cannon for a follow-up shot. Eren awakens within the Titan and exits, startled to discover a Titan standing in front of him. Without wasting any time, moves closer to Mikasa and Armin as the Titan begins to disappear.

Eren further speculates that because he was just concerned with preventing the projectile, his form was insufficient. He claims that he now has two escape strategies. He reveals that his initial strategy is to return to Wall Maria as a fully formed Titan.Mikasa and Armin discreetly observe as the Titan tries to move while being shielded by the skeleton of Eren’s incomplete Titan metamorphosis, greatly alarming Captain Kitz Woermann.

He claims that the basement of his home has the solution to all of their problems and declares that going forward, he must work alone, but Mikasa objects to this. Armin muses on their situation while they argue. Then he thinks to himself that even at the end, he acts like a coward as he recalls how Eren and Mikasa constantly fought for him.

Armin recognises that he is not a burden.

Eren then makes known the backup strategy. Eren will remain if Armin believes he can convince the Stationary Guard that he is a friend of humanity. Eren claims that if he had not urged Hannes to go after them, they would have been eaten by Titans five years ago, which leaves Armin perplexed as to why they would depend on him. Armin resolves to carry out the plan after realizing Eren and Mikasa never viewed him as a burden and telling them he will persuade them moments before the cannon is loaded.

Armin27s pride as a soldier
Armin’s honest speech

Armin emerges from the haze and turns to confront Woermann and the other troops. He makes an effort to persuade them that Eren is not the enemy of humanity. He contends that during the time Eren was engaged in battle with the Titans and that the Titans saw Eren as prey. Woermann, who is overcome with terror, rejects this and tells the men to prepare for an assault.

Armin salutes and begs for a final time to be allowed to explain the strategic significance of Eren, as they could even be able to retake Trost given Eren’s abilities. Woermann ignores Ian Dietrich’s advice to take Armin’s plan into account and attempts to fire the cannon before being stopped by Commander Dot Pyxis. Pyxis tells him to step aside because he wants to hear what Eren and the others have to say. Then he gives Woermann the command to prepare the reinforcements.

Pyxis ask question to Eren

The next character revealed is Pyxis, a man given entire control over the crucial aspect of mankind’s defenses. He listens to Eren and the others on top of the Wall, questioning Armin about his intentions and whether or not his words were only intended to save him. It was both, Armin says, explaining about the rock in the midst of the city and how the Titan advance may be stopped if Eren can take the boulder to the gate and shut the opening. Eren is asked by Pyxis if he agrees to use his abilities to move the boulder and close the opening in the gate.

Eren claims that he is not yet capable of comprehending or controlling his new skills. Pyxis asks him if he’s willing to give it a shot after rephrasing the query. Eren sees the area that would be lost if the gate were to fall from behind him and decides to support the idea after seeing it.
