Points to be made on why this chapter was just altered memories
>Pieck gearing up right after she went out of her titan
Chapter 101, after Pieck and Porko are rescued by the Panzer Unit, Pieck start her preparations to go help the warrior and Marley against the Paradis forces attacking Liberio. They clearly say they would take 15 minutes to gear up the Cart Titan, or 10 if rushed. In this chapter, the Cart Titan is geared up in matter of seconds.
In chapter 116, Porko attacks Eren, biting both off his legs off, including his pants, ofc. But suddenly, when Eren gets out of his titan in 119, he has his pants untouched.
>His eyes glowing when fighting Reiner
Right before Reiner and Porko have their P A T H S moment, Eren's eyes glow when looking at Reiner, and that happens again right before he gets shot. That paths moment between them is just because Eren was altering Reiner's memories, given the fact that 2 shifters touching never implied memories being transfered
>Touching a royal on human form would never work
Eren and Zeke knew pretty well that they should touch when they were on titan form to make it happen (at least it should have a royal blood titan), they fucking devised a plan about it, so in the end they would desperately try to get together as humans to use the coordinate, wtf? It doesn't make sense at all. Also, Eren can transform again at least twice, so why would he run straight desperately like he was?
Other than that, we always knew how Reiner felt about his failure in Paradis, how he felt like he was a big brother to all the young warriors, then what does he see? Again someone acting as a hero/big brother instead of him to save someone who he felt he should protect. To "convince" Reiner he was actually living that situation, his memory was altered to the point he would again feel bad for something he was unable to stop, and someone else (coincidence it was again a Galliard?) did instead of him.
Spread the word, CHADren bros!
