After Eren initiated the Earth explosion on Shiganshina, the Marleyans and Scout Corps soldiers formed a partnership in an attempt to stop the then villain from destroying the entire world. Therefore, they decided to catch Yelena with the help of the power of the Quadruped Titan as Yelena can be quite useful in finding Eren as she has the necessary information to find the bad guy.

As we know Yelena is a strong woman, she is a force to be reckoned with so she refused to give any information they needed about Eren. To make her speak Theo Magath crushed her arm which served him right in a way as she kept a condition that she will only speak if they carried her broken arm with them.

She appears to be sad as she gets to know about the failure of Zeke’s plans. According to her, Zeke’s plans were far better and peaceful than Eren’s method. However, Yelena finally tells them what she knew and the forces zoom off to find the Founding Titan. But Yelena stays back at the boat with Kiyomi, Gabi, Annie and Falco to visit Hizuru.

Later on, Falco transforms into transforms the New Titan Jaw which results in an explosion and then the ship sinks because of it. With help of their wings, Annie, Gabi and the Titan fly off, while the rest including Yelena saves themselves with the help of a few lifeboats.

Yelena is last seen in the series in a memory of Gabi, lying in the boat covered with sheets next to Kiyomi. It’s safe to assume that these boats were somehow rescued and ended up reaching their destination safely. As for the Azumabito, we knew things went well since after the three-year leap, Kiyomi appears next to Queen Historia.
