Im not sure if its acurate to say she herself came from outside the walls, however they say a entire clan. Its hard to believe that only 1 woman(girl) would be left from a entire clan.
Also the timescale in which it all took place. I suspect that there were other places in the world and that the situation got worse and this may be the last stronghold left.

Has anybody brought up interactions between human-titans and the average titans?
Because that's one thing I found amusing this chapter. Annie can be all like BFF when she brings along a horde of titans when they were using Eren as bait, to Annie being able to command nearby titans that dinner is ready (read: her).
But Reiner and Bertholdt can't stroll through titan-infested land if some titans see them transform (which brings into question the intelligence of a titan, it's much higher than I expected). But they had no problem with fodder titans back when they kicked a hole in the walls.

Well, deviant titans are overall smarter than expected. Back during the female type titan arc we actually saw a titan learning how to climb trees and getting better at it.
As for annie, she was not in such a fancy position among normal titans to begin with. It just so happened that when the scouting legion and her got to the forest there were not that many titans around. And it makes sense, the legion had that formation which is meant to avoid titans. On the other hand reyner probably just ran non stop in a straight line to the forest, he had no means to avoid titans and probably had a bunch of them following him. Heck, perhaps he even calculated in bringing in a couple of titans as a deterrent for eren going wild.
Overall titans have been as aggressive towards annie as they have been against eren or anyone else so far. Annie at most has the ability to call titans but not control them.
No, I think they do have a varying degree of control/leadership over them. Probably not to the extent of Big Foot, but it's there.
Annie brought a horde of titans when they baited her out. It was noted by Armin, if I recall correctly. Possibly to act as decoy as she went about her mission, who knows.
The two times Bertholdt kicked a hole in the wall. I can't imagine the titans that invaded following it just ALL happened to be in the vicinity. I'm leaning on the thought that it was all calculated, like they rallied them there.
...I dunno, I'm just not convinced that their predicament is as dire as they make it out to be. I swear they could hide from view and transform and the titans wouldn't be able to make one plus one. I dunno. On the flipside, it brings to question to the intelligence of a titan. A topic I remember debating over with Reclaimer, specifically how they make out "our enemy is so and so".
Now that I think about it, it might as well be that regular Titans just sense Titan-shifters as being huge humans, hence regular Titans would naturally prioritize shifters over small groups of humans. Not sure about this, but it might actually be something worth thinking about.
Hey there, now we know that the next chapter is going to focus on Irvin, Armin, Conny, Hannes, Mikasa etc. going towards the forest. There is going to be a discussion while they are moving.
It should probably involve :
Conny revealing something about how there was nobody and no bloodshed in his village. This is going to shock Armin.
Overall, I think chapter 47 might give a few answers and Armin is probably going to finally deduce a theory about the Titans origin, though we won't see much of her deductions.
I like how she accurately and logically comes to conclusions and tries to recheck her train of thoughts for some mistake or oversight.
I still don't feel like believing in this spoilers until some of the pages are leaked...
Where are the spoilers?
I saw it here, not sure if this is what everyone's referring to in the non-Japanese community. It's posts #1 and #2, Google Translate kinda works, but the general idea is:
Pretty epic if you ask me, but still, Pictures or it didn't happen :P
(Since last month's fake spoiler included Time Loop stuff lol...)
Hmm, I'm so confused right now
Not sure if my assumption that vanihba2000's post was based on leaked pages is true or not anymore, and I don't want to check Utsune's link and spoiler tag. Maybe I should just keep off this thread till next chapter, since I really don't want to know anything xD
