Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 22 Drops Sunday Afternoon
Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 22 (the sub version) will be available in the U.S. on Sunday, February 13 at 2:45 p.m. Central (3:45 p.m. Eastern/12:45 p.m. Pacific/1:45 p.m. Mountain.) In Honolulu, Hawaii, that’s Sunday at 10:45 a.m. In Anchorage, Alaska, that’s Sunday at 11:45 a.m.
This time was confirmed with Post Apocalyptic Media by a representative of Funimation. The time is also the same if you’re watching the English subs on Hulu and Crunchyroll. However, sometimes one of these three sites may find their servers having issues, which requires a delay in releasing the episode. If this happens, one of the other streaming services should still have it (and offer a free trial!) For example, Funimation has free trials and you can sign up here.
Here’s a countdown in case you want to know just how long you still have to wait:
The original Japanese version without subtitles drops as 12:10 a.m. JST (Japan time.) Because this is a few hours before it airs in the U.S., you’ll want to avoid spoilers and maybe just avoid social media altogether until you can see the episode. (YouTube can be especially bad about putting spoilers in the thumbnails, so you might just want to not visit YouTube at all on Sunday until you see the episode.)

See our full review of last week’s episode here. Below is a short synopsis.
Last week, we learned the Founder Ymir’s history and how the Titans began. It turned a lot of assumptions upside down and left others quite confused.
When Ymir was a child, the horrific Eldian tribe destroyed her village and took everyone — including Ymir — as slaves. They forced everyone into subjugation, led by Fritz (who would later crown himself king.) When Ymir was wrongfully blamed for a pig getting loose, the Eldians tried to by hunt her like an animal and kill her. She fled into a tree, falling down the roots into water below. While she was almost drowning, a glowing, parasitic spine latched onto her and turned her into the Founder Titan.
But even as a powerful Titan, Ymir continued serving as a slave to Fritz. She even continued this slavery once she died and went into the afterlife of the Paths, continuing to do the royal bloodline’s bidding. But before she died, she bore Fritz three children, whom the three walls were later named after.
Sadly, Fritz used her power to subjugate more people, including waging a war on the neighboring Marleyan nation and seeking to annihilate them.
Ymir died saving King Fritz’s life. He fed her body to her three children in order to pass along her power. We were left to assume that their descendants also ate them, and that’s how we ended up with the nine “warrior” Titans.
In the present-day paths, Zeke commanded Ymir to take away the Eldians’ ability to reproduce. But Eren told her that she didn’t have to listen to anyone but herself, and that he had gotten the message she had sent him from 2,000 years earlier. She chose to give him the power of the Founder, and Eren emerged in a new, terrifying form in the “real world.” He began the Rumbling and called all Eldians into the Path with him to hear his message. He informed them that he planned to kill and destroy everyone outside of the shores of Paradis, because only then would they be safe.
