The Recon Corps led by Captain Levi and his squad successfully retake a town from the Titans until they are called for an emergency at Trost as the Titans have invaded the city. When Eren was eaten and swallowed by the Titan, he found himself in its stomach along with bodies of its victims, some of whom were still alive. His anger over the Titans caused Eren to burst out of the Titan's stomach by transforming into a Titan himself and going on a rampage against them. When Eren regains his consciousness, to his confusion, he, Armin, and Mikasa are surrounded by the Army who are aiming their weapons at him. It is revealed that after Mikasa and the others saw Eren emerge out of the Rogue Titan, they all agreed to keep it a secret and bring him back inside Wall Rosé. However, Commander Kitz Weilman and his men did see it and have Eren cornered with Armin and Mikasa defending him. Kitz accuses Eren of being a Titan spy and demands to know what he is, but Eren has no idea since he has no memories of becoming a Titan or how his limbs grew back. Hoping to resolve the situation, Eren honestly answers he is human but a fearful Kitz orders the cannons to fire on them. As the three of them try to escape, Eren remembers his lost memories of his father giving him an injection, telling him to reclaim Wall Maria and go to their home's basement with his key. In order to protect Armin and Mikasa from the cannons, Eren partially transforms himself into the Rogue Titan.
