Levi arrives on the scene just as one of their pursuers takes over the hearse, and chases after it. However, he is quickly intercepted by other members of Kenny's squad and forced to retreat. With Kenny and his squad chasing him, Levi dives into a nearby bar to hide.
Thinking he has Levi cornered, Kenny swaggers into the bar confidently to confront him. The two converse briefly about their past and motivations for joining their respective factions, before Levi uses the bar owner's gun to shoot Kenny from under the bar counter, blasting him out of the building.
Thanking the bar owner for his gun, Levi throws a chair out of the window as a decoy. This draws fire from members of Kenny's squad outside, before Levi jumps out of the window himself and fires a grappling hook at 一個 of the soldiers, using him as a shield against a barrage of shots from the two other soldiers present. Before they are able to reload, Levi rushes between them, slicing them apart with his blades. Hearing the gunshots from Levi's fight, 里維班 heads towards the source of the fighting.

Outside the abandoned building where Squad Levi is holding 迪墨·利布斯 and his men, a crying Armin throws up into the water.

Sannes is tortured by Levi and Hange, but he refuses to reveal what he knows on account of his loyalty to the King.
