I know someone asks this every time, but how much story can be left at this point? What are the odds things wrap up by the end of the year?

Good, now Jean can fulfill his destiny and win Hair Bowl.
So, I always liked referring to the Titans as Sesame St characters (Bert and Ernie, etc). I traditionally reserved Big Bird for Annie, but I guess that's more applicable to Falco now (or the Owl). So what should Annie be?

I think it's going to spill into spring 2021. We still need to do the final showdown with Eren, the return of Zeke, and flying this drat plane.

I'm thinking it'll end in about 7 or 8 chapters. No idea how they'll fit all of this into one season, unless they break off at the Paths Dimension and make a movie for the last part.
I think Zeke will be disposed of pretty quickly, we just need a bit of closure. He's already been physically and spiritually broken, so there's not much more to do with him.

I am glad that the thunder spears devastated the titans to show that the innovations of the Paradisians remain relevant even when they're in the hands of the enemies.

I think its a testament to how well developed Paradisian anti-titan tactics are at this point. These mooks are giving the warriors as hard a time as they ever had.

I could see them doing what they did with season 3 and splitting season 4 into two cours.

True, but Season 3 covered 40 chapters of content and abridged some stuff that would've been redundant. Each cour seems to cover about 20. We already have 39 chapters of new content, with anywhere between 7 and 11 left (though likely the former). That would be cutting it pretty close. And I'm wondering where they'd but the season break? The most logical one would be either at the end of the Marley arc or at the start of the Paths Dimension, but I feel like either of those would be too early or too late, respectively.

Currently I'm rooting for Levi being like, "You're an rear end in a top hat, poo poo's all hosed, but instead of just killing you you're going to save a life" and feeding him to Connie's mom and then she hugs Connie and tells him he did go off and become a good soldier just like she told him to.

This definitely read like an end of series chapteróand by end I mean within the next year but for real this time. The timeskip crew all got redeeming actions in time for the climax.

S3 p1 + p2 was 22 episodes, and S4 could be 24-26 depending on production schedule, or end up a non-standard size (30 ep production runs aren't unheard of).

Additionally, we don't know if it'll be 2-cour (with a gap in-between); it could very well have its entire run contiguous.

This is precisely what I expect to happen with Zeke, although I don't know the timetable because I'm also banking on Levi dying up against Eren.

So this means the final chapter will probably be January or February right? The final season of the anime is in October, I wonder if it'll finish before the manga.

The last chapter willy be largely abstract, featuring Eren and Mikasa in a sort of desolate otherworldly realm. Expect spacious panels, sparse dialogue, and lots of staring. There will be some sort of giant tree involved. Peace will be decided on by our fine protagonists, while the fate of the rest of the world is left up to 'the reader's imagination.'

Final season will need at least 26 episodes, so the manga will still finish first.

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood had the anime and manga line up and end almost simultaneously so they're probably aiming for something like that.

Nah, it'll just be Eren laying in a bed while a random titan in the corner gives him the thumbs up for 50 pages.

I remain convinced that Levi cannot die until he fulfills his vow to Erwin, and thus will not - and he doesn't seem like he's going to be in fighting shape before the final battle anyway. Though he is an Ackerman...

But if he does die, I'll roll with it. I was prepping myself for it when Zeke blew them both up

Next two chapters will deal with them reaching Eren and the last four-five i have no idea.

Whatís the resolution here exactly, they stop Eren and then the world attacks Eldia or Eren wipes them out and the whole cycle starts over, as we saw when Floch was talking about the new Eldian empire.

Stopping Eren doesnít make the world sympathetic to Eldians, the authorís acknowledged it multiple times. It can only be a sad ending now, but Isayama said he changed it early on to be a happy end and for the life of me i donít see how he gets there in whatís left of the story.

I don't believe this story can wrap up properly this year, unless the next 6 chapters are all double length or something. There's still way too much to explore and resolve.

I wonder if we'll ever see the memories Eren got from the warhammer titan, it seemed so important at the time that it happened but now we're so late in the game maybe it'll never be addressed.
