Episode 56's summary is revealed! 🔥🔥🔥
"On the wall of the Shiganshina district, only a few Survey Corps soldiers survived. And Eren walks to the basement of his birthplace..."June 5, 2019
"What's in the basement?" has long been the biggest question that fans have been dying to see answered during the series run. While fan stipulation varies from the "origin of the Titans" to "dark secrets of the Eren's father", the next episode promises to reveal just what Erwin was dying to see before his untimely death.
Season three has been arguably the best season of Attack on Titan yet, showing a combination of threats to the Survey Corps scouts in the form of Titans and other humans attempting to cover up a conspiracy. While it seemed as if humanity had no light at the end of the tunnel, Eren and his company were able to push back the Titans, dealing severe blows to the Beast and Armored Titans, while simultaneously gaining the powers of Bertholdt, the Colossal Titan.
With most of the Survey Corps having been wiped out, the secrets of the basement may give humanity an even bigger advantage in their war against the Titans. Regardless, we're excited to see just what is revealed and we'll be sure to report back to you here on Comicbook.com.
