This guy makes his debut this chapter. He does not get to say anything though. Non-spoiler alert, everyone’s fine. The good guys at least. (one horse died, I presume)

Synopsis of chapter: Historia daydreams. Operation rescue fake Eren and Historia is a success. Levi makes a deal with the businessman to counter the cen- tral MP. Erwin's telling Pixis his plan of over- throwing the authority. The king (?) makes his debut.
Remember that scene in the 2nd ED where Jean’s standing closer to Armin? It seems now, Eren is busy with his own task, Mikasa is busy with Eren, and therefore there’s no time for Armin. Thank Isayama for assigning Jean to be Armin’s new friend (and vice versa as well). Speaking of which, they’ve been teamed together for at least three missions already (four when you count the anime originals)? – FT arc, Stohess, Eren’s retrieval, and now playing Eren/Historia’s doubles. Interesting how all those had happened within just 3 weeks time (within the story).
Now that we know there’s the plot for a coup, might we see the return of some of the new MP recruit characters? (The one who had said about changing the system). Trost, hometown of Jean..still the mystery of his family’s whereabouts. It’s probably a good idea to conceal his identity from the MPs..coz you know…they could send someone to his home’s door. Of the new-Levi squad members, with the exception of Sasha and Jean, everyone’s either an orphan or semi-orphan. Sasha’s family is technically nomad, so they are safe.
*and those are the weird thoughts on this chapter. won’t hear any theories guesses from me. not quite into those kind of things, especially when I have no knowledge/interest of said allusions..
There are already fanarts related to this chapter. This one, doesn’t have any words, so it should be universally understandable.
EDIT: it’s actually chapter 53 related… must be sleepy..
