Attack on Titan Episode List


With Eren accepting the mission, one of the the soldiers break down when they hear they are going into Trost District. Another soldier asks the female soldier to riot and protest, so they can all leave. On the wall, Hannes observes Eren is with Commander Pixis. Commander Pixis begins debriefing his soldiers on their plans to retake Trost District by sealing the hole with the help of Eren Jaeger. He states that soldiers must defend Eren from Titans while Eren seals the hole with a giant boulder. Meanwhile, Armin goes over the plan with a few members, and he states that a small elite force should defend Eren while most of the soldiers lure the Titans away. Though, the soldiers protest against Commander Pixis's plans when they refused to be sacrificed. The soldiers start to leave. Captain Wellman tries to punish the deserters. Then, Commander Pixis yells out and tells the soldiers that he will pardon the deserters, but he states that if they leave, their loved ones will learn the fear of Titans. He explains that if they lose any more territory, humanity will cease to exist because the remaining territory cannot sustain the survivors. Moments later, Pixis's men voice their concerns whether Eren can control his Titan powers and that they do not know him well enough. Commander Pixis states that their only betting option is Eren. Nearby, Eren tells Mikasa to stay in the decoy team and that he is not her little brother. However, Ian Dietrich asks Mikasa to be in the elite squad. Along the way to the boulder, Riko tells Eren that everyone is dying to protect Eren and reminds him to take responsibility for his actions. She fires a green smoke in the sky, signaling the operation to begin. When Eren transforms into a Titan, he attacks Mikasa.

Dot Pixis: "Here is my decision! I shall pardon anyone who deserts now. Once you succumb to the Titans' fear, you can never fight them again. Those who have learned that fear should leave. And anyone wishing their parents, siblings, and loved ones to feel that fear should also leave!" — The commander's speech
