Before that, Eren explains to Armin why he decided to eliminate 80% of humanity through The Rumbling. He also confessed that the only way to stop the power of the Titans is to help Ymir be released from the agony of love. Eren also said that it was not him but Mikasa. This explains why Ymir smiled when Mikasa chose to kill Eren in Chapter 138.
