| Two years ago, with assistance from Zeke Jaeger and the Anti-Marleyan Volunteers, Paradis Island was put in contact with an old ally in the nation of Hizuru. Their envoy, Kiyomi Azumabito laid out the three part plan to keep the island safe until a time it will not need to rely on threatening the world with the rumbling. However, Hizuru's assistance came from a place of greed and a year later they would not help Paradis negotiate trade with other nations in hopes of keeping any profit from Paradis's resources for themselves. Hange Zoë concluded that the Scout Regiment would have to venture out into the world themselves and meet people firsthand.
In the present, Eren Jaeger's behavior perplexes those around him, and his friends try to come to grips with the person which he currently is with the person they remember. Historia Reiss is now pregnant, which is delaying the transfer of Zeke's Beast Titan to her out of concern that the process could harm her or even kill her unborn child.

| Gabi Braun and Falco Grice escape prison and take refuge with the Braus family, who accept them as a pair of runaways. Kaya, one of the orphans who lives and works with them, is aware that the two are actually from Marley and takes them to where her mother was killed by a Titan four years ago. She asks them what her mother had done to deserve such a gruesome death, and is unable to accept Gabi's rhetoric about needing to pay for the sins of Eldians committed long ago. Falco explains that her mother was a victim of circumstance during an earlier mission and after coming to terms with that, Kaya offers to take them to meet a Marleyan at the restaurant the Braus family is going to, in hopes of finding a way to get Gabi and Falco home.
Elsewhere, Hange Zoë is forced to deal with insubordination when Floch Forster and three other members of the Scout Regiment are caught leaking information about Eren Jaeger's imprisonment. In Marley, the military has realized that Zeke Jaeger has faked his death and likely sided with Paradis Island. Rather than wait six months for a global offensive, Reiner Braun suggests they make a surprise attack before Zeke can come up with a defensive plan.

| Yelena admits to Dot Pyxis that ten months ago, she secretly met with Eren Jaeger, requesting that he apply pressure on the military to act. She suspected that left to their own devices, the military would debate and put matters off until it was too late. Not even the other Anti-Marleyan Volunteers were aware. Onyankopon tells Hange Zoë that Yelena was the one who organized them, and friends who doubted them tended to die "accidental" deaths.
At headquarters, Dhalis Zachary is killed by a bomb placed by Jaegerists hidden in the military. Around a hundred soldiers openly defect in support of Eren, many of them from the Scout Regiment. Knowing that Eren's followers want to connect him with his brother Zeke, Pyxis tightens security to use Zeke's location as a bargaining chip. Hange believes that Zeke planned for this eventuality, so they want to look into Yelena's placement of Marleyan prisoners in certain lines of work.

| Zeke Jaeger claims to have used gas mixed with his spinal fluid to transform the villagers of Ragako four years ago. He says he did not want to do it, but it was to provide cover while he was working for Marley. Levi Ackermann distrusts him though, because regardless of which side Zeke is truly working for, he does not seem to regret the lives taken.
Nicolo treats the Braus family at the restaurant where he works. Gabi Braun and Falco Grice make contact with him, in hopes of finding a way home, but Nicolo attacks her with a wine bottle when he learns that she is the one who killed Sasha Braus. Falco takes the brunt of the attack for her and is knocked unconscious. Both the Braus family and the Scouts intervene with Artur Braus choosing to forgo revenge. Subdued, Nicolo asks the Scouts to clean the wine out of Falco's mouth because it is probably tainted with Zeke's spinal fluid. Before they can finish bathing Falco, Eren and the Jaegerists arrive and take everyone hostage.

| While Gabi Braun sits nervously, Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackermann, and Armin Arlelt sit down to talk. Armin questions Eren over attacking Liberio. Eren declares that he chose to do so of his own free will, though Mikasa disagrees, believing that he is being manipulated. Angered, he begins chastising the two for lacking freedom: Armin for being manipulated by Bertholdt Hoover's memories, and Mikasa for her Ackermann heritage. Speaking in disgust, Eren tells Mikasa that he has always hated her. Armin and Eren begin a fist fight, though the former is quickly beaten.
Elsewhere, Levi Ackermann is informed about Dhalis Zachary's death, and tells the courier to let Dot Pyxis know of his plan to have Zeke eaten. As Levi is lost in his thoughts, Zeke darts off and lets out a scream. Levi's comrades fall from the surrounding trees, transformed into Titans. Levi is hesitant, but he soon steels himself to sacrifice the horde and begins ripping through them. He later catches up to Zeke and forces him to become the Beast Titan; however, Levi takes advantage of the Titan Forest to defeat him. Zeke's unconscious body is dragged out of the forest. Meanwhile, Floch Forster leads the Jaegerists to the Cadet Corps division in Shiganshina District.

| Floch Forster, Hange Zoë, and a number of Jaegerists are traveling to a Forest of Giant Trees when they hear the explosion caused by Zeke Jaeger triggering a Thunder Spear. As Zeke succumbs to his wounds, a Titan crawls up to him and tears open its belly, stuffing his body inside.
Meanwhile, Yelena has Dot Pyxis and other dissenting members of the military assembled in Shiganshina District. Eren Jaeger goes to meet with the imprisoned Gabi Braun, to have her send out a distress call to Marley in exchange for saving Falco Grice. However, a disguised Pieck approaches Eren and claims she wishes to help him destroy Marley. As a proof of her intentions, she offers to show Eren the location of her fellow spies in Paradis Island.
