In the last two minutes of episode 20 and in the first minutes of episode 21 the Special Operation Squad (aka: Eren, Auruo, Petra, Erd and Gunther) is set on the wrong track by an unknown, hooded figure. Now, you MAY think that the person sidetracking Levi’s Squad is Annie, the Female Giant.
But it’s not.
I watched this scene frame by frame and took some of them. Here’s my point.
1 - The body form is definitely masculine.
2 - The hands look masculine too.
3 - Flat chest. No sign of boobs.
4 - Annie’s skin is very pale, while this person has a olive skin.
5 - He’s wearing an orange sweater. Annie is never shown on screen with an orange sweater. She has a white hoodie.
6 - The nose. THAT ISN’T ANNIE’S NOSE.
So, who is the guy that kills Gunther and disappears right before the Female Titan comes back and kills the SO Squad? He’s very talented at the 3DMG. He’s wearing a Survey Corps Cape in disguise. He appears on screen while both Erwin and Armin are giving a speech about some people who saw Eren’s transformation being infiltrated in the Survey Corps.
Who is he?
And, most important, are those freckles that I’m seeing on his cheeks in the fifth image?
Yes, in case you were wondering, my bet is on Marco. I think he’s alive, I think he was a titan shifter. And trust me, I’m not saying this because I hate him. I love Marco, a lot. I just need him to be alive.
