They were always cautious about the surroundings. However, the situation is different in season 2.

As the Colossal Titan, mindless titans are not a problem due to the Colossal's size. However while Berthold and Reiner captured Ymir and Eren, they had to run fast, which means they could not rely on the Colossal Titan. This means that both Berthold and Reiner had to rely on Reiner's Armored Titan to quickly escape the walls. Keep in mind that both of them are trying to run fast because the Survey Corps are after them.

In the first episode,

Reiner only transforms to create a hole in wall Maria, so it is assumed that as soon as the wall was breached, he transformed back into a human.

  • Arguably, the Colossal Titan would also be visible from a very long distance due to its size, thus not being helpful when trying to stay out of sight. Also, you put the wrong name in your second spoiler, if I'm not mistaken :)

  • That is true. I am not sure what name is wrong? The Colossal Titan broke the outer gate of the Shiganshina district, whereas the Armored Titan broke the gate of wall Maria. Here's a link: youtube.com/watch?v=LyaTHTQMCWA

  • My bad, I thought you were referring to the initial attack by the Colossal Titan. I did not remember the Armored Titan appearing in the first episode, I thought this was considerably later (I also considered the first wall to be considered part of Wall Maria itself, though that is apparently not the case?)

They were worried, I guess. In Chapter 96 (don't continue to read if you avoid spoiler)

It was showed that Bertholdt's face was kinda shock when he saw Dina Yeager's titan. Reiner seemed worried either. But somehow Dina didn't get any closer to him (or she did? I don't know, the drawing looked ambiguous) and went straight pass to the the wall. Then Reiner quickly rescued Bertholdt and climbed up the wall while some mindless titans desperately trying to reach them from the ground.
