After last week’s back-to-back Attack on Titan episodes, it’s going to feel strange to only have one episode this week. Season 4 Episode 16 (also referred to as Episode 75) is advertised as being the finale, but we’re still holding out hope that it will simply be the “finale” of the first half of Season 4. (And this hope has since been confirmed!) Since this is likely going to be a huge episode, you won’t want to be a second late watching it. Just remember: the episodes are now premiering a little later in the U.S. than they did for most of this season. Here are all the details you need about what time Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 16 is premiering.

The Episode Drops on Sunday, March 28 in the Late Afternoon

AoT Season 4 Episode 16’s subtitled episode will premiere in the U.S. on Sunday, March 27 an hour later than the time you may be used to watching new episodes. The change just took place last week.
The new episode will drop at 3:45 p.m. Central (4:45 p.m. Eastern/1:45 p.m. Pacific/2:45 p.m. Mountain.) In Honolulu, Hawaii, that’s Sunday at 11:45 a.m. In Anchorage, Alaska, that’s Sunday at 12:45 p.m. The new later release time change is due to Daylight Savings in the U.S., which Japan doesn’t observe.
The only places you can watch are Funimation, Crunchyroll, and Hulu. We’ll have more details on how to sign up in the last section of this story.
The original version in Japan drops hours before the subtitled version drops in the U.S. That’s why you might see leaks early on social media. Just try to avoid social media if you can until the new episode drops where you are.

Episode 15 Refresher
Last week left us with another major cliffhanger after we delved deeply into Zeke’s backstory. We learned that Grisha repeated his father’s mistakes with Zeke, pushing his ideology on him and ultimately leading him to rebel. Zeke found a father figure in the previous Beast Titan’s host, who encouraged him to turn in his parents so he would stay safe. Zeke feels like the Titans have brought nothing but pain to everyone, so his ultimate goal is to end the entire Eldian race by using the Founding Titan’s power (with Eren’s help) to change Eldian physiology so they can’t have children.
Eren has said he’s on Zeke’s side, but I’m just not so sure.
Meanwhile, in Episode 14 Eren told Mikasa that she was controlled by an Ackerman compulsion created by the Founding Titan to always protect the Founding. He believes Mikasa’s love for him is a compulsion and not of her own free will. And he believes Eren is falling under the influence of the Colossal Titan, including Bertholdt’s memories. However, Zeke’s desire to wear the same glasses as his predecessor seems to point to his being under a similar influence.
We’re still left with a number of questions as we approach the finale. What exactly happened between the Tyburs and King Fritz to cause him to hide behind the wall in Paradis? Did he really lament Titans so much that he compelled his own punishment? Is what Eren said about the Ackermans really true? Do all the Titans pass along their original host’s ideology?
So much to learn, and so little time. Here’s why we think there will be a second part to Season 4.
