The search for the truth after this arc?
Eto kinda hinted in the new chapter that she is going to die soon, after being attacked by Furuta. Now, many people are suspicious about this and are wondering if this is actually true. If Eto would die, I think her farewell would be… well different. Also, folks here have pointed out that we are nearing the Moon phase of the Fool`s journey, a time of illusions and deception.
Now, we know that :re parallels with TG, and heavy parallels are drawn to the Agoiri Arc with this current arc. Now what is interesting is what happened after that. Kaneki got together a gang and started to search for the truth about the world, by first trying to search Rize.
I think most of us back then though that Rize was dead, but she turned out to be alive at the end of Kaneki`s search. So maybe something similar will happen here. Eto will tell Ken that she is going to die, but in reality she just faked her death. After this arc ends, Kaneki starts to look for the truth about the world, and what a better way to do it than start looking for Eto
I think in other ways Eto could be the “searched Rize” in the next arc,since she and Rize have some similarities. Kaneki got Rize`s kakuhou implanted onto him, making him a ghoul. Now they are connected. Kaneki ate Eto`s kakuja piece during :re, and now they are connected by that too.
Rize was aslo compared to some sort of mother figure for Kaneki in the first series, and that is going on with Eto too. Eto was literally molding Kaneki into something.
Lastly, both have a connection to the Black Goat`s Egg.
Maybe Ken will try to save Eto too, as he promised that to Yoshimura.
