[[WMG: The story takes place in the far future, after geomagnetic reversal]]
Geomagnetic reversal is when the North and South magnetic poles switch places. The map of Marleyan and Eldian territories shows what looks like upside-down Africa, but maps are usually drawn North-up. However, this is actually Africa, and it didn't turn around - it's just that magnetic South and North have been swapped, so now all maps are upside-down mirrors of old maps. As to why the civillization is, at most, at WW1 levels despite this being far-future Earth, the period of magnetic poles switching places could [[http://www.livescience.com/18426-earth-magnetic-poles-flip.html greatly weaken Earth's magnetic pole]], allowing various unsavoury stuff like higher amounts of radiation and solar flares to reach Earth, which might've crippled the old, more advanced society - on top of whatever other issues the old world might've been suffering.

* Doubt it. At that point, she may have gotten a glimpse and saw it was Armin and was just looking to make sure since she didn't want to kill him. Everything else we've seen about Titans indicate that they have a perfectly functional sense of vision. They see little humans running away from them all the time and give chase. Eren and Annie can accurately throw punches at each other when fighting. Eren, who's new to Titan-shifting and would probably say otherwise, never gives any indication that he's having trouble seeing or can't see in color.

** Jossed. The plot is still protecting certain characters as far as chapter 84. Armin in particular should definitely be dead, yet some DeusExMachina saves him yet again.

** Also, to the second post here, that's exactly correct. The Marleyans want the fossil fuels on Paradis Island to enhance their technology since they know Titans won't be a war game changer for much longer.

[[WMG: The Eldians never actually ruled over the Marleyans or their land]]
Rather, this was a lie cooked up by the Marleyan government to justify their war and subsequent genocide of the Eldians. I think either the Eldians owned the southern part of the continent (which appears to be [[http://attackontitan.wikia.com/wiki/Paradis?file=Marley_and_Paradis_compared_to_Africa_and_Madagascar.png Africa in the far future]]) and the Marleyans owned the northern part; or, the Eldians owned Africa to themselves and the Marleyans originated from Europe. Either way, the Marleyans feared the Eldians ability to Titan-shift and ''they'' initiated the conflict by concocting a scheme to steal their Titan power as well as their land from them. The Marley invaded the Titan-led Eldian lands from the inside out with the use of [[TheMole moles]] for hundreds of years until they eventually outnumbered them. Then, they stole the Titan powers and began to wage war, which they won decisively. ''This'' is what caused the First King to flee to Paradis island rather than the official story that bickering among the Titan-houses caused him to leave. Basically, the Marleyans conquered Eldia before the King left, not after.

[[WMG: Nine of the main characters are direct descendents of the first nine shifters with individual abilities]]

If you take out Mikasa and Levi, you're left with nine main characters - Eren, Armin, Jean, Connie, Sasha, Historia, Hanji, Erwin, and Ymir. Of them, [[spoiler: three]] of them ([[spoiler: Eren, Armin, and Ymir]] are already shifters, and we know that Historia belongs to one of the bloodlines that originally possessed one of the abilities. While [[spoiler: Erwin is dead]] he could easily be related to the unknown shifter that Grisha consumed in order to become a shifter rather than a mindless titan.

[[WMG: There's a "Horse" Titan shifter]]

If you look a the drawing depicting the Titan wars, you can see the Female Titan, The "Mule" Titan and the Beast Titan fighting each other, in the background you can see a Titan Horse who's even more animalistic that the Beast Titan. Considering that there are 9 Titan powers of which 7 have been accounted for (Colossal Titan, Armored Titan, Female Titan, Beast Titan, Mule Titan, Dancing Titan and Rogue Titan) there's at least one more Titan to be revealed.

* With the Reveals that came in chapter 86, a HeelFaceTurn seems a lot more plausible. At least, her old friends might be willing to talk to her now that they know that [[spoiler: She and the other Shifters are Brainwashed Child Soldiers]].




to:

* [[spoiler: Bertolt's death]]. We don't know what their relationship was, but she will ''probably'' not take the news well.




** Jossed. Eren and co. finally make it to the basement in chapter 85 and find it untouched.

* First part's been jossed. It's been confirmed that Grisha is ''NOT'', and never has been, aligned with the Shifters [[spoiler: or rather, the Marleyan government]].

There's a distinct possibility for this given her sympathetic characterization. A possible scenario is that she sides with the Survey Corps because [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe the were nice to her, and she came to care for them]], which would fit in to the "fight for what ''you'' love and believe in, not for what others tell you to" theme. Also, while all three infiltrators clearly hate their mission, she seems to be the most "detached" from it; as if she doesn't really believe in the cause behind it, and simply follows her orders because she feels there's no other choices for her. If true, than there is a possibility of her realizing that there ARE other choices available to her, leading to CharacterDevelopment.

* Jossed. The country they come from is very rich, powerful, and populous. Though it's very reminiscent of a Nazi-run Germany. Though chose kids for the mission presumably because they're eaiser to brainwash, plus they'ed be beneath suspicion.
