The Eren and Annie fight each other as Titans throughout Stohess, causing destruction and casualties while Hange orders her men to stand by before they capture Annie. Meanwhile, Erwin tells Nile he will accept responsibility for the damage his plan has caused, for which Nile has Erwin arrested while the Military Police help evacuate the civilians. As Eren gets more brutal with his attacks, Annie desperately fights him off and attempts to escape by climbing up Wall Sina. However, Mikasa cuts off Annie's Titan fingers, sending her falling. As Annie falls, she remembers her father asking for forgiveness, telling her to hate the world and ask her to promise him she will come back home. When it appears Eren is about to eat Annie, he stops once he sees her crying and her body starts encasing itself in ice. As Eren recuperates, he admits to Mikasa, Jean, and Armin that he allowed Annie to get herself frozen. As Jean and Armin wonder if sacrificing their humanity to defeat the Titans is worth the price, Erwin attends a government inquiry. Erwin reveals he kept his plans a secret to prevent leaks and despite the deaths and casualties of his plan and how they cannot get any information from Annie now that she is frozen, she is proof there are humans that can turn into Titans living within the walls and he plans to find and use them to launch a counterattack against the Titans. In the end, Erwin is acquitted, Eren stays with the Recon Corps, and Annie is put under the Corps custody. In the epilogue, a piece of Wall Sina falls, and inside of it is a very large Titan.
