Annie has a dream of being trained by her father before waking up. In the Stohess District, the Military Police Regiment are ordered to escort the Scout Regiment convoy once they enter the capital. Annie’s colleagues Hitch Dreyse and Marlo Sand joined the Military Police Regiment for opposite reasons, one for its current corruption and the other its possible reformation. After the convoy has entered the Stohess District, Annie is secretly called by Armin in the alleyways. Armin begs for her help, as he is helping Eren escape the capital, and the one riding in the convoy is actually Jean in disguise. Although declining at first, she finally agrees when Armin believes that she is a good person. Armin leads Eren, Mikasa and Annie to an underground tunnel, but Annie refuses to enter. Armin finally reveals his suspicion that Annie is the Female Titan, noting that she used Marco’s omni-directional mobility gear to kill Sawney and Beane and that the Female Titan did not kill him during the 57th Expedition. After Eren and Armin beg Annie to prove them wrong by following them, she laughs and soon transforms using the spike in her ring.
