Attack on Titan fans thought they knew who their heroes were, but all of that has changed with season four. The introduction of characters like Gabi have blurred the line between what is right and what is wrong. This week, audiences were left breathless as they watched Reiner's cousin defend herself against Paradis after Eren's ambush left her stunned amidst a sea of corpses. But when Gabi's revenge found its mark, the Attack on Titan fandom was left to war with itself about whether or not the girl has become a bad guy.
Be warned! Spoilers for Attack on Titan seasons four lie below! Don't read ahead unless you are caught up with the anime and/or manga!
The whole conversation began online as you can see in the slides below. Fans reacted to Attack on Titan's most recent episode, and it is hard to blame them for doing so. After all, the update put Gabi in a difficult spot. The warrior candidate went on a murdering spree after she saw one too many of her friends die by Eren's hands. To get revenge, she hopped in a fleeing airship that housed the soldier, but she ended up killing Sasha instead.
As you can imagine, Sasha's death came as a shock to fans around the world. Even manga readers were left bereft even though they knew the moment was coming. Gabi's vengeful action has put a massive target on her back, but there are others coming to her defense. After all, propaganda is a hell of a thing, and Gabi has been led to believe Eren's comrades are literal devils. Eren would not have hesitated to kill anyone who invaded his home back in the day if he had been able to. Gabi took the chance when she saw it, and Attack on Titan fans are left to grapple with how that action paints Reiner's cousin moving forward.
