July 9th, 2018
Chapter 107 CoverHange visits Eren inside of his cell and recalls two years prior, when Kiyomi visited Paradis Island. Kiyomi reveals that Mikasa is a descendant of a shogun. The military then have a meeting with her. She explains that Zeke had brought them together. Zeke had told her of his true allegiances, having always been loyal to the Eldian Restorationists, despite appearances. He offers Hizuru the opportunity to exploit the resources under Paradis in exchange for their cooperation in his secret plan. Kiyomi divulges the details of this plan: to display the destructive potential of the Earth-shaking, to spend 50 years modernizing Paradis, and to have Historia succeed Zeke as the Beast Titan, bearing as many royal-blooded children as possible. Eren disagrees with the plan, although Historia reluctantly accepts.

Hange admits that they had found no solution, and questions Eren for acting alone. Eren reacts violently, explaining Hange has no power over him or Zeke, before grabbing Hange's collar, asking her what she can do. At the graveyard, Niccolo, Jean, Connie, and Mikasa talk about Sasha before meeting with her family. The Anti-Marleyan Volunteers give Titan injections to Pixis, though he has them arrested due to the current uncertainty around them. Zeke is taken to a Forest of Giant Trees to be held captive. Gabi fakes a seizure, and knocks out the investigating guard, before escaping the prison with Falco. Reiner awakes, wondering where the two children are, and Historia sits outside in a rocking chair, visibly pregnant, when a man implores her to go indoors.

August 9th, 2018
Chapter 108 CoverThe MPs discuss Historia's unplanned pregnancy with a commoner working at her orphanage, that had forced them to change their plans of immediately devouring Zeke. One MP believes Yelena had persuaded Historia, and the volunteers have something planned. Around that time, Jean, Mikasa, Armin, and Connie discuss Eren, who suddenly supports Zeke's plan, and who Connie finds to be a completely different person. While Connie angrily says they should be prepared to have to cut him down, Mikasa reminds them of an event from the previous year that showed how much he cares for them.

Last year, while building a train track, Hange brings news that Hizuru had been unable to open up a diplomatic path. They regret other nations' unwillingness to see them in a positive light, and Mikasa suggests they should meet them face to face. Later on the train, Eren brings up the topic of finding a candidate for his Titan powers. The former 104th volunteer themselves, but Eren refuses, saying they are too special to him. In the present, Mikasa says Eren is moving forward for their sake, but the others disagree, Jean saying he put them at risk and Armin explaining they may need to have him eaten if he can not be trusted. Gabi and Falco rest by a stream, and fight over Gabi taking off her armband. They meet another young girl and before Gabi can attack her, are convinced to go to her house. In Marley, Magath briefs the Warriors of Zeke's likely betrayal. He explains that the world has banded together to form a global military alliance that will destroy Paradis Island in six months. Reiner Braun, however, believes Marley should attack immediately, to go against Zeke's expectations.

Chapter 109 CoverKaya leads Falco Grice and Gabi Braun to the Blouse stables, which are run by Sasha Blouse's mother and father. The two Warrior candidates pretend to be runaways and are allowed to stay for as long as they need. However, Kaya reveals that she knows they are Marleyans and asks what her mother could have done to earn so much hate that they would have a Titan eat her. Falco apologizes and explains Marley's long term invasion plan. Understanding that they personally had nothing to do with it, Kaya offers to take them to Niccolo, who might be able to help them get back to Marley.

Meanwhile, Hange Zoë deals with insubordination from a number of Survey Corps soldiers who leaked sensitive information to the press. Dot Pixis believes they might have been compromised by Yelena since there was a change in Floch Forster while he was assigned to keeping an eye on her. Hange is disturbed that she finds herself in the same position that Djel Sannes had warned her about years ago. On Hange's orders, Mikasa Ackerman locks up Louise, who had become a soldier because she was inspired by Mikasa's rescue of her in the Battle of Trost District.

Later that night, the military branches meet to discuss the developments, when a soldier rushes in and tells them that Eren had escaped.

Acting Commander-in-Chief Dot Pixis has Hange Zoë and Nile Dok secure the personnel who either know of Zeke Yeager's whereabouts or protect the Queen's residence.

Hange takes the remaining members of the 104th with her to investigate a restaurant after noting the line of work taken up by many of the Marleyan prisoners of war. The Blouse family arrives at that same restaurant, where Niccolo now works. Midway through their meal, Falco Grice and Gabi Braun reveal their identities to him, as Gabi tries to warn him of the upcoming Marleyan invasion.

As Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert reassure Gabi Braun that they do not want to kill her, Eren Yeager walks into the room. Meanwhile, the other Yeagerists enter the restaurant, led there by another Marleyan worker. They restrain those present and revealing that they refuse to negotiate with Dot Pixis. They demand that Hange leads them to Zeke.

While Gabi sits nervously, Eren, Mikasa, and Armin sit down to talk. Armin questions Eren over attacking Liberio. Eren declares that he chose to do so of his own free will, though Mikasa disagrees, believing that he is being manipulated. Angered, he begins chastising the two for lacking freedom: Armin for being manipulated by Bertolt Hoover's memories, and Mikasa for her Ackerman heritage. He explains that the Ackermans were designed to protect Eldia's Kings, and as a result, the family instinctively protects one they recognize as their host. Speaking in disgust, Eren tells Mikasa that he has always hated her. Armin and Eren begin a fist fight, though the former is quickly beaten. Elsewhere, Levi Ackerman is informed about Darius Zackly's death, and tells the courier to let Pixis know of his plan to have Zeke eaten.

Chapter 122 CoverTwo thousand years ago, Ymir was a slave in service to an Eldian tribal leader named Fritz. When she took the blame for an escaped pig, his men hunted her for sport.

When she died, he fed her body to their daughters to ensure her power would be passed on for generations to come.

In the present, Eren Yeager calls out to Ymir, saying that she does not have to be a slave and obey Zeke's orders. She has the ability to choose. He believes she is the one who led him here, and that she has been waiting for 2,000 years. Though Zeke tries to stop them, Ymir hears Eren and lifts her head in tears.

Back in the present, Eren has unleashed all of the Titans of the Walls. Armin Arlert realizes it is far more than needed if Eren's only intent is repelling the current invasion. Mikasa Ackerman wonders if Eren has always been this way and they never noticed, or if there was something different they could have done or she could have said to avoid coming to this moment. Using the power of the Founding Titan, Eren announces his intention to kill everyone in the outside world in order to protect the people of Paradis.
