@TitanShift: I see, so you meant to say the same thing then. (By the way, I forgot to say: welcome to the boards!)
I don't think Annie damaged the wall on purpose on the contrary RAB
and the Ape titan clearly avoided damaging the walls though the had the power too.
I highly doubt anything mattered to A then getting away at that moment...
And if worst comes to worst and Armin's statement about the wall titans
going for a walk comes true that will also be the time of Annies comeback undoing her cocoon.
Unless the find another way of getting her out or her village comes to the rescue.
If that theory is correct, then the trio, would rather that this supply of soldiers against their people be eliminated - even if those people are innocent.

It took Reiner (what appeared to me in the manga) a full second to realize that a canned food was out of place there.
If they are placed in a post-apocalyptic Germany, then I wonder if the people at Reiner's hometown are a little bit more advanced than Eren's people.
If this theory may be correct that may explain why mikasas and her moms family (idk what they were called but they were like a tribe or something) disappeared and what happened to them

I just made an account but you know the titans, it seems that the skinless types (Annie bert) have some type of power, and im thinking because bert is the colossal titan similar to the titans in the walls maybe someone was trying to make him one? This may explain why he's so slow and maybe the 'person' who wanted to make him one wanted a member of his family back, believably all the wall titans are male someone tried to make a female? And make the walls stronger and make an 'armoured' one because they were afraid of 'something' or tried to protect 'something'.
Also i think that titans haven't got control over their body but they have over atleast a small part of their brain because connies mother said welcome back and the other titan that spoke to the women tried to stop himself eating the women and talked but he couldn't like someone controled him which is most likely the 'beast' titan.
I have a theory that there was a 'town' where someone created the titans and that town would be reiners/berts/annies home townand that maybe all of the people where shifter or changed into titans and they followed 'someone' and that 'someone' may 'created' the beast titan and the beast titan may have had intelligence and took over them and made him make titans and then the titan shifters knew they couldnt stop him unless someone else could control the titans eren! SO they made the walls out of shifter so the people (real royal family and people like rens dad) could gain time, and tried to make an injection to make a shifter like eren so somehow he can stop them.
If she meant to show the people in the city the Titans in the walls, it was to somehow cause panic and mayhem inside the walls in support of her mission.

There is another question as to whether or not they agreed to be inside the walls. If those titan's didn't want to be in the walls, that means that its possible for a "Coordinate" to have power over shifter titans, as well as normal titans. Interesting. Pastor Nick was worried the Titan might wake up and if it was left to do something of its own free will might do something to reveal the secrets of the walls. I think its safe to assume the Titans in the walls are not there willingly.
Pastor Nick knew about the Titans in the walls before it appeared, and he knows how they function based on sunlight. That means Nick and a large number of people already know about the wall titans. That means that at a minimum, there is a conspiracy to keep information from the public. More likely is that the Wall Cult and royalty know all the secrets of the walls.
I've said a few times that I think the AoT universe is just a human experiment. If that's true, then wall titans were setup to create the perfect human experiment. For what purpose, we don't yet know.
What you say about Annie doesn't contradict what I said there. I never said I thought she had good motives (although I do think she was truly sorry about the people she apologized to in Trost). My intent was only to suggest it's plausible that as a "last ditch" effort, she tried to reveal wall titans in hopes of fomenting fear/unrest/confusion, etc. I see her the same as Reiner or Bert. On the one hand they liked everyone in their squad and really did feel a bond with people there, BUT their mission and Bert/Reiner's village was top priority and kept their loyalties, first and foremost.
If Wall Society is a human experiment (which it very well could be), it would seem the titans in the Walls are more likely to be there willingly. Otherwise there's some puppetmaster out there who's controlling all regular humans PLUS many/most titans. Much though I like cattle raising (human experiment) theory, I lean toward them not being there willingly though, based on the same things you mention with Pastor Nick. He's very hasty to get them covered up and he specifies not letting the sunlight onto them too (so it's probably not just about not letting the public see). I suppose it could all be explained by royal conspiracy but... yeah...
