Jean manages to get another Maneuver Gear from a dead soldier and escape thanks to Annie, Conny and Marco distracting the Titans. With Titan Eren now carrying the boulder towards the gate, Ian orders everyone to distract the Titans away from Eren, with some of them sacrificing their lives. Eren finally blocks the open gate with the boulder which Rico signals a yellow flare that the operation is a success. As Armin tries to pull out Eren from his Titan body, he is surrounded by two Titans but is saved by the timely arrival of Levi. With the gate finally sealed, the army eliminates all of the Titans in Trost except two which are captured for research purposes. As the army counts their causalities and dead, a shocked Jean finds Marco’s dead eaten body, Sasha’s group are horrified to find a pile of dead bodies regurgitated from a Titan and Annie mourns one of her dead comrades.
