Attack on Titan Season 3 Episode 3 Old Story
In a flashback, Historia tells the Scouts of her upbringing on the Reiss estate in the region of Wall Rose, her estrangement from her parents, the execution of her mother by Kenny and then being hidden as Krista Lenz. In the present, Rod heads back to his family estate with Historia and Eren while Hange explains to the Scouts that Eren will be eaten to acquire his Titan powers and abilities. The Scouts split up and head for the Reiss estate to rescue Eren and Historia. Meanwhile Erwin explains to Commander Pyxis his plans of a bloodless coup to overthrow the corrupt government to retake Wall Maria. Erwin gains Pyxis' support after telling him that Sannes confessed that the current royal family is a fraud, and the Scouts plan to have Historia enthroned as Queen. He also reveals that his father was murdered after telling Erwin that he believed the real reason for the flight to within the walls was to protect the land and property of the wealthy, not humanity. To insulate the other Scouts, Erwin then surrenders to the Military Police who frame him for the murder of Reeves after he appoints Hange as his successor. Outside the city, the Scouts prepare for their rescue mission, but they are being tracked by the Military Police.
