If you think last chapter felt like a wrap up, then this chapter tops it. See? Even Jean is returned to his former role. Yes, it’s been two months (in-universe time) since chapter 69, so physical characteristics do change, except in this case, seems like only Jean’s got the treatment.
Timestamp: 3 months 2 weeks and 9 days ; we flipped the calendar last chapter – much more flipping in this chapter.

Synopsis of chapter: Historia's opened a child care camp. Technology advances by folds (because it's been two months, or more importantly, it's no longer prohibited). Levi is elected to be in charge of that mysterious serum. Eren realizes who the instructor was. Hello Reiner, Bert, and monkey.
Nothing much revealed this chapter. It’s more like a “what they’ve been up to” kind of a chapter. In two months, they’ve made such technological progress. Does that mean by the time this series’ over, we’ll see skyscrapers and such? (Yeah, that’s a bit far fetched. lol… it’s more of a reference to how the Naruto series ended with laptops and other modern items available)
So now that syringe of serum is no longer just a secret to Levi, but to other officials as well. It certainly will be brought back into the story in the future – maybe not so distant, as we see at the end of this chapter. Monkey man is waiting for the team at Shiganshina. Don’t forget Connie. He will also be on his own journey to find out the truth ? So which storyline will we follow when 71 arrives…
While they seem to be very optimistic about reclaiming list territory due to the invention of new defence measure, as audience, we do know the monkey titan will have no trouble knocking over some walls again. Good luck to them.
