Attack on Titan, episode 2, “I’m home” reintroduces the main characters, but focuses primarily on one secondary character Sasha Blouse. She is known as “potato girl,”possessing an insatiable appetite and a pleasant manner of speech. Sasha returns to her village, Dauper, that is a sparely populated village in the forest, in the southern territory of Wall Rose. While returning to the village she remembers a argument she has with her father, Mr. Blouse. She sees a new village and is immediately confronted with a horrific sight.
A more human sized titan is chewing on the leg of a handicapped woman as her daughter watches. Sasha attempts to use an axe to kill it, but the rate of the titans healing prevents her from succeeding. She loses he grip on the ax and out of desperation flees with the girl. The titan turns its attention toward Sasha and the girl, while the girl is stunned that Sasha would help her at all. Sasha has a flashback of her and Ymir, who tells her to be herself. She returns to the present and determines that she will fight off the titan and the girl should run.
Sasha isn’t know for her titan slaying prowess, but puts up a valiant effort considering that she only had a bow and four arrows. She concludes that blinding the titan temporarily will be the key to freedom. She succeeds and is surprised to see her father and other villager returning to get her. Her father tells her that he’s proud of her. Meanwhile, Connie Springer also returns to his village, he frantically rushes through his village and toward his families home. The episode concludes with a odd titan, that has crushed the home of Connie. The titan is emaciated, with ribs protruding out of it’s body and small limbs.
This episode conclusion was the most interesting part. I can’t hope but wonder that the eyes of Connie and the titan are similar. It may be nothing but I though it was interesting. Regardless, the next episode may reveal what true. The beginning of the episode reintroduced us to our primary characters, Eren, Mikasa and Armin. They are tasked with traveling in a group that features Levi, Pastor Nick and Hanji. She suggests that the trip will test Pastor Nick resolve and expose him to the reality of the world. This wasn’t an action packed, but interesting as always.
