In town, Marco listens to a soldier who shares his brutal experiences with the Titans while Sasha hears them nearby. Marco stops the man from unsheathing his sword to commit suicide, and he points to Sasha who is a brave soldier. Sasha screams out that she has a bad stomachache. Jean hopes that the others do not learn about Eren's secret. Then, a cannon shot is heard, and Titan's steam is seen. Annie, Berthold, Reiner, and Jean head towards the Titan's steam. Eren wakes up and struggles to get free from the disembodied Titan skeleton. Eren explains to Mikasa and Armin that his father had a secret in the basement. Armin points out that Eren is exhausted and recalls how he wasn't able to fight for himself. Eren asks Armin for his opinion if Armin can convince the garrison to stop attacking them. He reminds Armin that he had saved their lives when he called Hannes.
Out of the steam, Armin runs out with his hands up. He pleads with them and states that they have valuable information. Armin reminds them that Eren had fought against the Titans. However, Captain Wellman refuses to believe Armin. Armin yells out that he is a soldier after realizing the captain is scared. Commander Pixis stops Captain Wellman from executing his order. He tells everyone to listen to Armin and his group. While Commander Pixis listens to Eren's group, Captain Wellman rallies more reinforcements. Armin proposes that Eren can block the entrance with a giant boulder to stop the Titans from entering Trost District. Commander Pixis asks Eren if he can do the job. Eren states he does not know, but he will do it.

Armin: "I'm told that many of you saw him! Then, you saw him fighting the Titans! And you saw the Titans swarm him! That means the Titans considered him food, the samw way they think of us! That is the truth, no matter what we may think or believe!"
