Everyone, including Mikasa, starts to believe that Eren wants to carry out Euthanization, preventing Eldians from having children. And if that happens, their race will slowly go extinct in a few years. However, Armin still puts his faith his Eren and thinks that Eren might use Founding Titan’s power to start the “Rumbling.”

“Rumbling” in Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 2 Explained

In Attack on Titan, “Rumbling” is an event where Karl Fritz’s Wall Titans would be unleashed upon the world using the Founding Titan’s powers; the same countless titans that in the present day are contained inside the Walls. If freed from the walls, these Titans would destroy everything in their path, bringing humanity to its knees.

Apparently, in the past, Eldians used the “Rumbling” to take control of the world. However, Karl Fritz ended the war by moving all Eldians to Paradis Island and building Wall Maria, Rose, and Sina. After that, he removed all the memory of the outside world from the minds of Eldians, forcing them to believe that they were the only ones left in this world. Finally, Karl Fritz then asked Marleyans and the rest of the world to leave his people alone. And he threatened to set off the “Rumbling” if anyone ever tried to invade Paradis Island.

So, it’s understandable why Onyankopon and Armin think that Rumbling is the only way of protecting Paradis Island from the threat of Marleyans.
