|Attack on Titan Episode List|
Ian yells at Mikasa to run away while Mikasa tries to talk some sense into Eren. Meanwhile, Riko fires a red smoke. Then, a soldier alerts Ian about the incoming Titans entering the area. When Riko tells them to abandon the mission, Mikasa glares at them. From the wall, the other soldiers are at a loss of words. However, Commander Pixis tells them to not give up hope. Ian orders Riko and Mitabi to kill the Titans to protect Eren. On the walls, Connie, Jean, and Marco chat about their strategy. Jean tells them to reserve their strength. Back at the boulder, Ian convinces Riko to trust his order to protect Eren. Riko reluctantly follows the order, but she states that she will die for a useless cause. With Ian and the group gone off to engage the enemies, Mikasa notes that Eren's injuries are not healing. Eren sleeps and dreams about his family at home. Armin arrives and asks Mikasa about the plan. He tells Mikasa that he will pull out Eren. When Armin stabs the nape, Eren's Titan body wakes up. Armin frantically yells at Mikasa to take care of the other Titans while he tries to wake up Eren. He reminds Eren about his revenge for his mother.
In the heat of the battle, Ian saves two of his comrades. Mikasa arrives to the battle field to regroup with Mitabi's squad. Jean lures a Titan away from Connie, but he finds out that his 3D Maneuver Gear is malfunctioning. Annie and Connie spot Jean running from a Titan on foot. Jean ducks into a building and spots a 3D maneuver gear from a corpse on the street. Finally, Armin finally reaches out to Eren.
