Ep 9 – “Whereabouts of His Left Arm: The Struggle for Trost, Part 5” / “Hidariude no Yukue -Torosuto-ku Kōbōsen (5)-“ (左腕の行方 ―トロスト区攻防戦⑤―)
Captain Levi of the Scout Regiment and his squad successfully retake a town from the Titans until they are called to an emergency at the Trost District as the Titans have invaded the city. It is revealed that when Eren was eaten and swallowed by the bearded Titan, he found himself in its stomach along with the bodies of its victims, one of whom was still alive. His rage at the Titans caused him to burst out of the bearded Titan’s stomach by transforming into a Titan himself and going on a rampage against them. To Eren’s confusion when regaining consciousness, Kitts’s men aim their weapons at him. Although Eren’s comrades saw him emerge from the Rogue Titan, they all agreed to keep it a secret and bring him back inside Wall Rose. However, Kitts also witnessed this and has his men corner Eren, but Armin and Mikasa defend him. Kitts accuses Eren of actually being a Titan in disguise, but Eren has no memories of becoming a Titan or how his limbs grew back. Even though Eren claims he is human, Kitts fearfully orders the cannons to fire on the three of them. As they try to escape, Eren recalls hazy 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 Mikasa and Armin from the cannons, Eren partially transforms himself into the Rogue Titan, sheltering them inside his ribs.
