Ep 6 – “The World the Girl Saw: The Struggle for Trost, Part 2” / “Shōjo ga Mita Sekai -Torosuto-ku Kōbōsen (2)-“ (少女が見た世界 ―トロスト区攻防戦②―)

Armin awakens to find himself surrounded by Conny Springer, Christa Lenz and Ymir. When Armin breaks down in tears after Conny asks what happened to his squad, Ymir correctly deduces that they are all dead. As Armin heads back to the rear guard, he blames himself for being weak and not saving Eren. Meanwhile, a greedy merchant tries to force his cargo into the city’s exit gate and refuses to allow the refugees to go first. As the crowd grows impatient, an Abnormal Titan suddenly approaches but is killed by Mikasa right before it can reach the crowd. When she realizes the merchant is the cause of the holdup at the gate, she threatens him into moving his cargo for the refugees. As she is thanked by a mother and daughter, Mikasa has a flashback. In the year 844, a year before the fall of Wall Maria, Mikasa is targeted by slave traders, who murder her parents in a struggle. After Grisha and Eren discover the dead bodies while making a visit, Grisha orders Eren to return home. Instead, Eren tracks down the slave traders to a nearby hut and kills two of them in an attempt to save Mikasa. However, the third slave trader appears and begins strangling Eren, who tells Mikasa to kill the man if she wants to live, which she does after overcoming her fear and gaining resolve. Eventually, the children are found by the Military Police. As Mikasa cries that she has no home to go back to, she is invited to live with Grisha and Eren, who gives her a red scarf to wear. Back in the present, Mikasa slays more Titans and goes to help the other squads evacuate.
