"That day, the human race remembered the terror of being dominated by them, and the shame of being held captive in a birdcage..." — Over 100 years ago, a natural predator of humanity appeared: the Titans, giant humanoid but mindless monsters whose sole purpose of existence seemed to be to devour humans. There was an insurmountable gap in power between them and mankind, and as a result, humanity was rapidly exterminated to the brink of extinction. The survivors responded by constructing three concentric walls: Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sheena, which graced them with a century of peace. However, one day a Colossus Titan far larger than any other seen before breached the outer wall, allowing the smaller Titans to invade the human territory and forcing the survivors to retreat to the inner walls. Eren Yeager, a boy whose mother was eaten during the invasion, vowed to wipe every last Titan off the face of the Earth, and joined the military decided to exact his revenge.
Armin awakens from a dream of the Colossus Titan, and Eren informs him of the Survey Corps' situation. Armin is shocked at the news that he had received the Titan serum instead of Erwin, and further disturbed at the news that he had eaten Bertolt. Levi explains the circumstances which led Armin to receiving the serum, and Hange informs him of his new responsibilities in taking the place of Erwin's life. She sympathizes with him, herself taking up the role of commander with Erwin's death. With the news given, Eren, Mikasa, Levi, and Hange make their way to Eren's old home while the others stand guard.
Arriving at the wreckage of their home, Eren recalls his childhood interest in seeing the basement. They clear a path to the basement, but discover that his father's key is not to the basement door. Levi breaks the door down, and the four investigate the basement of the Yeager family household, finding what appears to be a normal doctor's office. At Grisha Yeager's desk, Mikasa discovers a locked drawer. Eren uses the key, and they discover three well-preserved books.
At Trost District, Commander Nile Dok recalls Erwin's questioning of the existence of humans beyond the walls. He notes the definitive statements made in the history books that no humans survived, a claim made without evidence. As Commander-in-Chief Zackly suggests Nile should apologize for his doubts to Erwin in person, they are told that the Survey Corps has returned. The surviving nine Survey Corps soldiers arrive at Trost, recalling their discoveries.
In the basement, the four come across an incredibly lifelike image of Grisha with another family. On the back a note is written, identifying the image as a photograph and revealing that humanity lives beyond the walls in luxury, having never truly gone extinct.
Grisha Yeager's basement (グリシャ・イェーガーの地下室 Gurisha Yēgā no chikashitsu?) is found beneath the Yeager family's house in the Shiganshina District. This place was supposedly used by the head of the family Grisha for his work as a doctor; however, after the fall of Wall Maria, it was revealed that it actually stored an important secret concerning the Titans, and Grisha entrusted his son Eren Yeager with the key to unlock this secret and the mission to reach the basement and discover it. To find this secret was one of the goals of the Survey Corps during the 58th expedition beyond the Walls.
The basement is a small room with a desk, a chair, and several shelves containing bottles of medicine and books about medicine. However, it was noted that this is just a facade meant to prevent suspicions from the Military Police Brigade in case of inspection.
In the desk there is a hidden drawer, opened with a key Grisha always kept with him and which passed to Eren shortly before his death. Although the drawer seems to be empty, it has a false bottom, containing three books treated with peppermint oil and charcoal to keep moisture and bugs away, and a photograph in one of them of Grisha with an unknown woman and child dressed in elegant clothes. A message in the back of the photograph reveals Grisha's origin and the true status of humanity.
