Mikasa tries to reason with Eren’s Titan, but to no avail. Eren’s Titan continues his attack and accidentally incapacitates himself, slumping to the ground. The elites protecting Eren sends up a red flare to signal that the plan has failed, much to the dismay of the troops observing from the wall. As Armin heads toward Eren to investigate, the elite squadron argues and eventually agrees to protect Eren, recognizing him as a valuable military asset. During the operation, Jean gets separated from Connie and Annie after his Maneuver Gear malfunctions, forcing him to hide from two Titans in a building. Armin reaches Eren’s unconscious Titan, but Mikasa calls to him, warning that the Rogue Titan is dangerous. Armin plunges his sword off to the side of the Titan’s neck, which briefly awakens Eren. As Armin talks of the outside world and Eren’s promise to kill all the Titans, Eren leaves his dreamlike-state and regains consciousness.
