NO NO NO YOU KNOW WHAT???? Because we’re talking about SnK and NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS I have a totally legit view of this. I feel so profoundly BAD for Erwin. Like Erwin deserves just as many tears as everyone else this chapter. I feel like…he loves and respects all of his soldiers and would NEVER EVER want anyone to die if he could, but he’s just been doing this for SO GODDAMN LONG and he’s already seen so many people die that now that he’s possibly been thrown a solution to this entire thing, a weapon or a window into making sure no one else has to die that goddammit he’s NOT LETTING GO. If he has to fight tooth and nail to make sure this happens, if he has to sacrifice a few more people to make sure no future generations will have to do this, he’s going to do it. He’s probably so used to switching off his emotions and going robotic/on auto-pilot just to ensure that no one died in vain and it RIPS APART MY FUCKING HEART.
