“As Hannes fights off the Smiling Titan to protect Eren and Mikasa, the Scouts face a losing battle as more Titans thrown by the Armored Titan surround their position. Eren tries to transform into a Titan but is unable to as he and Mikasa watch Hannes get killed by the Smiling Titan. As he falls into despair, Mikasa comforts Eren and thanks him for being there for her all these times. To protect Mikasa, Eren throws a punch at the Smiling Titan, activating an unknown power within him which causes all the non sentient Titans to attack and kill the Smiling Titan, avenging his mother and Hannes. Ymir realizes this is why Reiner and Bertholdt want to bring Eren back with them as he is a “Coordinate”, the ability to control other Titans.
