What's Going On With These Confusing Time Jumps In Attack On Titan Season 2?

Four long years after the first season premiered, Season Two of Attack on Titan finally hits the screens! While anime similar to Attack on Titan have tided most fans over, nothing beats hearing that epic opening song by Linked Horizon. But with the scouts split into several factions after Titans are sighted within Wall Rose, the story has become increasingly non-linear, and some fans have been finding the time skips and constant flashbacks a little tricky to follow.

Whilst readers of the manga (that is considerably further ahead in the timeline) are more accustomed to these dramatic jumps back and forth, anime-exclusive fans might benefit from this chronological explanation of what's going on in Attack on Titan Season Two, from Episode One to Episode Eight.
