Before an investigation can begin, Titans appear within Wall Rose. Mike orders the group to split into four squads to warn the nearby villages. Lynne is in the south squad, headed by Gelgar. Lynne comforts Connie Springer when he fears his family had been eaten by Titans while they investigate his hometown, saying they probably all escaped due to the lack of blood and bodies. The squad rejoins with Nanaba and Henning's squad after failing to find any breach in Wall Rose. As night falls, the two groups take refuge in Utgard Castle.
