The Colossal Titan's falling body hits the ground, releasing a massive amount of heat and steam and enabling the Armored Titan to free itself from Eren's grasp and extract Eren from his Titan form. Bertholdt, carrying the still unconscious Ymir, uses stolen 3DMG to leave with the Armored Titan. The blast seriously injures many of the Scouts, including Mikasa and Hange. Several hours later in Trost District, Commander Pyxis, Erwin, Jean, and the other military forces are informed about the battle with the Colossal and Armored Titans as well as the capture of Eren and Ymir. Back at the walls, Armin watches over the unconscious Mikasa. While unconscious, Mikasa has a dream about the past, wherein she rescued Eren from the neighborhood bullies. She wakes, and is distraught to find that Eren is gone. There is nothing they can do about it in their current state, but Hannes gives a rousing speech reminding them of Eren's steadfast resolve, and vows to help them rescue Eren. Erwin soon arrives with reinforcements. Hange, now awake, posits that Reiner and Bertholdt may seek the relative safety of a nearby Forest of Giant Trees to rest until nightfall, assuming their goal is to relocate outside of Wall Maria. Eren and Ymir are shown waking in the forest as their bodies begin to regenerate their missing and damaged limbs while Reiner and Bertholdt watch over them. The episode ends with the soldiers departing from Wall Rose to mount a rescue operation.
