Not entirely sure how it will happen, but my guess is that the final resolution will revolve around defeating Eren then placing all the blame for the Rumbling on him and the Yeagerists. The rest of the world knows that Eren led a coup against the rightful Eldian royal family, which had renounced all war, then installed a military dictatorship he manipulated into war against the rest of the world. The rest of Paradis can then place all the blame for the violence on the Yeagarists and offer them up as an offering of peace, alongside the destruction of the Titan powers. It would be a nice parallel to the post WW2 settlements that seem to be influencing Isayama.

quote:

Ultimately, I don’t think the series passes judgment on what is “right” or “wrong.” For example, when I read Furuya Minoru’s “Himeanole,” I knew society would consider the serial killer in the story unforgivable under social norms. But when I took into account his life and background I still wondered, “If this was his nature, then who is to blame…?” I even thought, “Is it merely coincidence that I wasn’t born as a murderer?” We justify what we absolutely cannot accomplish as “a flaw due to lack of effort,” and there is bitterness within that. On the other hand, for a perpetrator, having the mindset of “It’s not because I lack effort that I became like this” is a form of solace. We cannot deny that under such circumstances, the victims’ feelings are very important. But considering the root of the issue, rather than evaluating “what is right”…to be influenced by various other works and their philosophies, and to truthfully illustrate my exact feelings during those moments - I think that’s what Shingeki no Kyojin’s ending will resemble.
