Im not saying it's illogical. I'm saying it sucks and detracts from the narrative he'd built dropping it in the final chapter.
I think it was to explain why Mikasa killing Eren was a big deal. Like, why would that act end the two thousand year old titan curse? Because the personification of the titan curse had some connection to the emotions involved.

Ymir and Fritz weren't really characters, just vague thematic justifications for the way the world was. "Someone once felt this way, and that's why the world sucks."

I'm not saying it's not lovely in any number of ways, but I'm glad people are discussing it because I think I'm finally starting to understand what the heck was supposed to be happening in this last chapter at least.

Kinda surprised Historia chat hasn't been more of a thing, since the last chapter either constitutes character assassination or an extremely uncharitable depiction of queer people.

Unsure exactly how Historia counts as an uncharitable depiction of queerness

still annoyed that Ch.130 and parallels like this actually mean nothing

Maybe she allowed the Rumbling to happen and the Paradis junta to fall to fascism because she wanted revenge on the world for taking Ymir away from her and trying to force her into being a cannibal brood mare for the sake of her people, respectively?

We don't know how her convo ended, but maybe Eren really did convince her she is "The Worst Girl in the World" in the end. She seems pretty happy as queen of Nazi-land at the end there.
