What happened in episode 8?
Episode 8 was nothing short of an emotional rollercoaster, with twists and turns that have shocked the anime world.

However, Gabi was able to shoot down the rear guard of the blimp, a man called Lobov, and used his ODM gear to get onto the airship.
Gabi, who still somehow manages to have a rifle, shoots into the crowd of Scouts, killing Sasha.

Why did Gabi kill Sasha?
- In Attack on Titan season 4 episode 8, Gabi killed Sasha for revenge on the Scouts destruction of Marley, which resulted in the deaths of fellow Warrior Unit Cadets Zofia and Udo.
In the previous episode, Sasha shot two of the Internment Zone guards who were protecting Gabi.
However, it appeared that Gabi did not intentionally aim for Sasha on the blimp, instead shooting blindly into the crowd of Scouts.
From Gabi’s standpoint, this was more of poetic justice for the attack that killed Zofia and Udo, rather than personal revenge against Sasha.
