Countdown Timer for Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 27
The English sub of Season 4 Episode 27 will be dropping at 1:45 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, March 20 (3:45 p.m. Central/4:45 p.m. Eastern/9:45 p.m. UTC) in the United States, according to an official note that Crunchyroll shared with Post Apocalyptic Media. It’s important to note that this means the episode is dropping an hour later than we’re used to (but the same time as it dropped last week). Because of last week’s Daylight Savings time, the episodes are now releasing later every week.
We’ve provided a timer from from TickCounter embedded below, which is timed to the expected release to help you out.
In Japan, a non-subbed version airs on TV on NHK a few hours before it’s available in the U.S. So steer clear of social media on Sunday to make sure you’re not spoiled!
If the above timer doesn’t work, we have another that you can use in the next section below.

A brief synopsis of last week with spoilers is below.
Last week’s episode, “Traitor,” was gut-wrenching (to say the least.) The Rumbling has already reached the shores of Marley, so the team has to move fast to try to secure the port and stop the Jaegerists. And while Armin, Conny, and the others had hoped to do this without bloodshed, their plans fell apart when Floch quickly saw through the deception and warned his troops.
All of this led to a heartbreaking showdown between Samuel and Daz versus Armin and Conny. You may not remember, but we had seen these two fighting alongside Armin and Conny since season 1. They had a long history together, and Sasha even saved Samuel’s life once. (You can read more about their history in our story here.)
Armin and Conny ended up paving the way for Reiner and Annie to turn into Titans and attack the port, killing numerous Jaegerists in an attempt to spare the flying machine and save Lady Azumabito. Seeing those two Titans fighting — and knowing that Conny and Armin provided the deception that let them attack — was chilling, even knowing that what they were doing was ultimately for the better of humanity.
Of course, Samuel and Daz were confused too, because they feel like they are only protecting their homeland and they haven’t been left with any other choices. The whole scene before they were killed was just heartbreaking and so sad.
In the end, Conny flashed back to a chilling conversation he had with Bertholdt, and seems to be understanding things from his point of view better now.
We were still in the thick of the battle when the episode ended, waiting for this terror to reach its next conclusion on Sunday.
