If that happens, you might want to have one of the other links below ready just in case.
Here are the best links for watching Season 4 Episode 21 online. Many of these streaming platforms also offer free trials. We’re also promoting the legal links, so we can better support the creators and animators.
Watch AoT on Funimation: Season 4 Episode 22 (Episode 81) will drop the English subtitled episode at this link. You can also get a free trial at this link if you’re not a subscriber so you can watch the episode today.
To watch Episode 22 on Funimation, you’ll need to click on the link above and change the dropdown menu to Season 4. The new episode will be listed as Episode 81 (“Thaw.”) You’ll need a paid subscription (or a free trial for a paid subscription) to see the newest episode. You can stream ad-free for just $7.99 a month, which is the least expensive of the legal options. Funimation is available in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland, Brazil, Mexico.
If you want to watch Episode 81 with a free account, you’ll have to wait until this time next week. The newest episode will be locked until then. To get a free account, go to the account signup page and scroll down until you see a link that reads “Not ready to commit” and then proceed from there.
Watch AoT on Hulu: Hulu will post Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 22 at this link once it’s online. If the episode doesn’t appear for you on Hulu once it’s supposed to drop, our story here gives a workaround that can sometimes make it appear.
Watch AoT on Crunchyroll: Season 4 Episode 22 will premiere at this link once it’s available (and it will be listed as Episode 81.) If you sign up for a subscription, you can see the episode right away. It’s $9.99 a month, a little more than Funimation.

Season 4 Episode 21 Refresher
Read our full review of last week’s episode here. Below is a quick recap.
We finally learned the secret of Founder Ymir’s history and how the Titans began. When Ymir was a child happily living in her village and trying to be kind to everyone, the war-mongering Eldian tribe destroyed her village and took all the inhabitants as slaves. They intermarried within the tribe and forced everyone into subjugation, led by the original soon-to-be King Fritz. When Ymir was wrongfully blamed for a pig getting loose, the Eldians tried to kill her by hunting her like an animal. She fled into a tree, fell down the roots and into a tributary of water below. Inside was a glowing, parasitic spine which latched onto her and turned her into the Founder Titan.
Even as a powerful Titan, Ymir allowed herself to continue serving as a slave to Fritz. She bore him three children and used her power to subjugate more people, including waging a war on the neighboring Marleyan nation.
She died flinging herself in front of a spear that was meant for King Fritz. He fed her body to her three children — Maria, Rose, and Sina. We were left to assume that those three gained her powers (or a split of them) and then when their descendants ate them, that’s how we ended up with the nine sentient Titans.
Now Ymir lives in the afterlife of the Paths, still acting as a slave and building each Titan by hand with bucket fulls of sand.
In the present-day, Zeke tried to command 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.
