So I'm watching season 1 again, and am on episode 2. When Eren's dad left before Zhinganshina was breached, he had the basement key with him. Then, now, in episode 2, Eren has a dream that his dad is trying to inject him with something (I know what it is but won't spoil). He wakes up and thinks it was a dream, and proceeds to put the basement key around his neck into his shirt. If he thinks it was a dream and that he never saw his dad at all, how does he not question the fact that he has the key on him? Doesn't make any sense.

Without spoiling anything, I can definitely tell you the key AND how Eren knew to bite himself to transform is not a plot hole. All answers will come in time.

Well all of the titan powers and abilities themselves comes more clear in the manga and if you are watching season 2 so far you might be able to get a hint of what is happening for example with **** (Name not included so spoilers won't ruin it for people), but in total if you want to know where the titans come from, what is in the basement and also how and why eren acquired the key read the manga even if it is online.

In the scene where his dad is trying to inject him with the unknown vial, you can notice that there's is something tied around Eren's right hand, which you could assume is the key

.... I'm trying to think of any time Eren showed signs of introspection, questioning his actions or any kind of thought other than 'Get beyond the walls' and 'Kill all the Titans' Ok that's probably too harsh but most of the time it feels like Armin does his analysing for him so my answer would be: he didn't question where he got the key because Armin failed to notice the discrepancy... and neither Hange or Levi knew enough of the key situation to provide back up analysis (as they usually do when Armin isn't around).

Seriously, I like Eren, he's a great friend but I can see what Jean means when he calls him a blockhead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
