I read Marco Bodt's wiki article and I'm confused about his death. The article says that Reiner, Bertholdt, and Annie capture him to take his ODM gear but it says 'for unknown reasons'. If I'm correct, the reason they steal it is so that Annie can kill Sawney and Bean without getting caught and to later use it when she emerges from her Titan form after being devoured by Pure/Abnormal Titans.
