What will he do if he leaves? Initially he did join the military hoping to get into MP and thus getting a better life within the inner walls; but he can’t join ANYthing else now because his name should already be listed under SL. So even if he leaves the team, he will have to go into hiding – there is no real advantage for him to leave other than to survive (for a short while..).
However when he does decide to stay, it won’t be because he trusts the heichou, but because he values his friends more than almost everything. I don’t think he could stand leaving his friends to face to crisis themselves (ref. chapter 18). Plus he could endanger his family if he goes back to Trost.
Connie has no family to return to; I think it’s safe to say he won’t be leaving the squad. Sasha is the one who actually has options. Her family are hunters, and probably lives as nomads.
Somewhere a person’s written about how Erwin, under custody in Stohess, may come in contact with some MPs. Marlo, Hitch and others are/were stationed in Stohess – maybe one of them will join into the coup?
too bad this is not an OVA..
It would make for a nice OVA in my opinion – it does illustrate the training of 104th class.
summary: Trainees are asked to pair up for another simulation training. Jean wants to partner with Marco, but Marco’s too popular amongst people. (so he gives up) With no one else to team up with, Jean and Annie end up as a pair. (yea…it’ll be Jean/Annie vs. Mikasa/Eren) Which teams come out on top..?
now that’s appeared in the manga..
..They have put this into new SP addition for the SnK online game. “Eren: He looks absolutely nothing like me…!” At least he didn’t call him horseface again this time; and now we know how they’ll look when that part of the story’s animated.
