Armin tells Mikasa of Eren's death

In Mikasa's dream, Armin spends many days playing with Eren Yeager from day to night.[4] The two boys bonded over their desire to travel outside the Walls. Armin told Eren about his parents' death. His parents had tried to build an airplane to go outside the Walls but failed and died. Armin showed Eren a prototype airplane that his parents had worked on. Together the two made improvements to the airplane. They soon completed the airplane and decided to fly over the Walls at night. During the time that they worked on the airplane, Armin gifted Eren a butterfly container that he had made.[5]

On the night of their planned trip, Armin runs in the rain to deliver a message to Mikasa. He falls to the ground as he tells her about Eren's death. He tells her it is his fault for telling Eren about the outside world, and says the airplane failed to take off and that Eren saved him by pushing him out of the plane before crashing into the Wall. Armin starts to apologize to Mikasa.[6]
