The final episode preview hints at the upcoming war at Shiganshina district. Eren asks his Jaegerists to capture Armin, Mikasa, and the remaining Survey Corps members.
They will bring them to a secret prison upon Eren’s orders. As the final war is about to begin, there will be a lot of characters will be involved in this battle.

Episode 15 recap
The recent March 22 release featured back-to-back Attack on Titan episodes, Episode 14 and Episode 15.
Fans missed seeing the complete Episode 14 last week after a strong earthquake hit Japan, International Business Times noted. The airing suddenly stopped to give way to the news and other updates.
Anyhow, fans received a big treat when they happened to watch two episodes on Sunday, March 22.
Episode 15 ended with a major cliffhanger after Zeke blew himself up, while Levi’s fate remained to be seen.
The penultimate episode mainly featured Zeke’s origin story and how he became the Beast Titan.
Levi managed to catch Zeke again after he tried to transform and attack him. Zeke then remembered the humiliation he suffered at the hands of the Marleyans.
Sadly, despite the rigorous work, Zeke couldn’t match other candidates’ abilities. He then became a disappointment to his parents, Grisha and Dina.
Zeke then met the Marleyan warrior Tom Ksaver, who was also a Titan researcher. The latter took him under his wing and trained him on his own.
Zeke became stuck between Eldia and Marley. What made a Beast Titan? It was after learning the truth about his parents that led him to transform.
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 16 will be out on Sunday, March 28. It can be seen on Crunchyroll, Hulu, AnimeLab, and Funimation.
