Ep 15 – “Special Operations Squad: Eve of the Counterattack, Part 2” / “Tokubetsu Sakusen-han -Hangeki Zen’ya (2)-“ (特別作戦班 ―反撃前夜②―)
Levi and his Special Operations Squad, composed of Petra Rall, Oruo Bozad, Eld Gin and Günther Schultz, who are all elites chosen by him, bring Eren to the old Scout Regiment headquarters where Eren will learn to control his Titan’s power under their watch. As Levi orders the castle to be cleaned, Petra assures Eren that despite his rude and harsh demeanor, Levi does care about the people under his command. Meanwhile, Erwin and Miche Zacharius discuss the new recruits joining the Scout Regiment and how they must prove Eren’s usefulness to Military Command within a month. While discussing his powers with Levi’s squad, Hange arrives and asks Eren to help her in her experiments with the two Titans they have captured, which she named Sawney and Beane. Hange is revealed to have an obsession with Titans where she treats them like people despite the many times she puts herself in danger. In her talks with Eren all night long, she reveals that the Titans need sunlight to survive and their bodies are disproportionately light despite their size. But the next day, the Scout Regiment discover Sawney and Beane have been killed. As Hange mourns for them, the Scout Regiment deduce that the culprit is a soldier who escaped using their Omni-directional Mobility Gear, which makes Eren wonder who their true enemy is.
