As the recruits are investigated over the killings of the Titans Sawney and Bean, Annie, who will be joining the Military Police later, gives advice to Armin and Connie that it is their choice to decide on which branch of the Army they join. The recruits are later greeted by Erwin who tells them the Recon Corps' next expedition within a month is to reclaim Shiganshina and find the secret hidden in Eren's home basement. After telling the recruits of the Recon Corps' fatalities in each expedition, Erwin tells the recruits that they may stay and join them or leave to join the other branches. As many recruits leave, Jean joins the Recon Corps in honor of Marco with others joining him as well including Mikasa, Armin, Sasha, Connie, Ymir, Krista, Reiner, and Bertholdt despite their fears. As the Recon Corps prepare themselves for the expedition, Eren is reunited with his friends and learns what happened to the others. Jean questions Eren if he can truly control his Titan powers as they are risking their lives for him. With everything ready, the Recon Corps begin their 57th Expedition beyond the walls.
