SYNOPSIS:
The J.A.R. trio needs extra horse(s). Krista comes, bringing some horses. Female titan continues her rampage by slamming, slinging, and kicking. Erwin orders the team to divide up. Levi’s squad heads into a forest, but the female titan catches up with them.

SCENES COUNT:
1. whistling for horse
2. riding towards the forest (ani-ori scene)
3. chilling on trees

This is an ani-ori scene. They seem to have added a part where they are riding towards the forest.

I really wonder if this is some hint of future happenings. Although… he doesn’t seem to be the type of person to rebel for real. That title probably better belongs with Mikasa, or Eren, or ? He’s probably just doing his ‘speak whatever on his mind’ thing again.

both of them are like " ...... "

Now that Jean has discovered a walking wiki, he will confirm his every speculations/theories/findings with it, I mean, him.

Thoughts..
Too many things happened in this episode despite it only covered 1.5 chapters (24 and half of 25). Oh everyone knows the reason. I can count at least two ani-ori scenes. The animation of the episode is amazingly well-done – makes you wonder if they have reserved some funds for the season finale. From the pacing, it looks like a certain group of people will die another week, not next week, but the week after that. Right, about Jean, the animators have put a lot of focus on him again – giving his horse a name, his chat with Armin while heading to the forest – and so many monologues/dialogues, as if he’s become the MC of the show. But then, Armin and Eren also does that – but Armin’s the strategist, that’s his excuse for doing that. The added material really does make his character more likable, and you won’t expect any other characters to say those lines; it only works for Jean’s character. Not much more to talk about, pretty standard action-packed episode. Oh, Reiner’s love-at-first-sight scene? -looks to chapter 47-
