    Re: Time Leap

    I think most of us have come to that conclusion, honestly. That would be what Ymir, Bert, and Reiner were talking about in chapter 46 (same chapter where she asks them "what was that monkey?" although it's not clear if the "monkey" is the "real enemy" itself or just related to RB's goal in some other way), which Ymir refused to reveal to Eren at the end.

    *edit*
    Based on the latest two chapters, I've come to think the "real enemy" is some kind of ruling alliance among humans at the centre (possibly figures within the gov't) AND shifters/intelligent titans from Reiner and Bert's "hometown" or the land they are from, wherever (or whenever) that is.

    Re: Time Leap

    When Reiner reveal his identity to Eren and Eren ask where they want to take him, Reiner says : Think of it as our hometown.

    My bet is that by OUR hometown they are including Eren. I'm not sure what that would imply or how that would fit into the time travel theory but I'm sure that it's the case.

    Maybe the reason Eren is valuable as something to do with what his father told him. He said «Their memories will teach you how to use the power». We don't know whose memories he is referring to but it could be that those memories hold what Reiner and Bertholdt are after. That could explain why Eren is special, because the memory contain within the serum he was injected with aren't the same as those that other shifter received.

    Re: Time Leap

    Scuse me for bumping this but I simply have to put up the Idea:

    Ouroboros

    Eternal Recurrence.
    Quote Quote:
    a concept that the universe has been recurring, and will continue to recur, in a self-similar form an infinite number of times across infinite time or space. The concept is found in Indian philosophy and in ancient Egypt and was subsequently taken up by the Pythagoreans and Stoics. With the decline of antiquity and the spread of Christianity, the concept fell into disuse in the Western world, with the exception of Friedrich Nietzsche, who connected the thought to many of his other concepts, including amor fati.

    In addition, the philosophical concept of eternal recurrence was addressed by Arthur Schopenhauer. It is a purely physical concept, involving no supernatural reincarnation, but the return of beings in the same bodies. Time is viewed as being not linear but cyclical.
    Also happens in the myths, the serpent biting it's tail, Jormungandr surrounding the World of the Norse.

    That's interesting, would explain many points of the plot. I just can't think how exactly Isayama would do that.

    remember what Armin said. no one is truly a good person. to some people you're a good person, while to other people you're a bad person. so i'd say Reiner and Bertold aren't really the enemies, yet they are
