In the televised version of the episode, when Hannes meets up with Eren, Mikasa, and Armin in town, the emblems on his jacket change from being Garrison Regiment symbols to the Scout Regiment symbols. See more »
In a show called "Attack on Titan", whose first scenes depict the destruction of a human settlement by the show's enormous namesakes, we're going to see and hear about the Titans quite a lot. What's interesting about this episode is that it offers a look of how the human characters (whose names I haven't yet memorised!) live in spite of the ever-looming threat. Far too many fantasy films (and a few too many shows) have made the mistake of failing to connect the viewer to the character on-screen, meaning that any devastation facing the protagonist(s) doesn't evoke much of an emotional response. If future episodes of "Attack on Titan" follow in the direction of "The Night of the Closing Ceremony", I believe that this show is ticking all the boxes in balancing action, plot and character development.
