The ED was perfect for this ep!

Awesome ep, glad the pace has slowed down and we can really delve into the characters emotions.
I agree..

IN the manga Ed

Thanks for that manga part. Yes,I feel that would have been more powerful than Ed running about with so much energy :P

Yep, that definitely is better. Wonder why they changed it.
well, stupid choice of change was stupid, huh? certainly would've been better that way

True, but I think adding the Maria Ross scene at the end of the episode and intertwining that with the "big reveal" at the end was a nice way of ratcheting up the tension at the end.

But yeah, the Newspaper reveal was better

Cannot -wait- to see the reactions to the next episode.

and btw, a bit off-topic... that's a reeeaaaaally intelligent signature you've got there xD...

It was so sad when Hughe's wife cried after their visit.
And even more sad when Winry said she wanted Hughes to try her apple pie. ;_;

It made me cry! T_T

I unfortunately watched 17 before 16. I had no internet for a week and just watched the wrong episode first even though MAL said otherwise. >.< Maybe I wouldn't have gotten so angry at ep. 17 if I would have seen 16 first.

meh, wasn't really too fond of the changes they made really. Still emotional though.
I agree with a lot of you about the pace slowing down too. Nice to know they weren't planning to move fast through the whole thing.

The most emotional bit for me was when Ed closed the door and the whole "Mama don't cry" bit.

Great episode. Lust was the date, ohoho. Lucky Jean.

God...Winry always looks so attractive, no matter the situation. Too bad she's just another anime character.

Great episode...loved the drama.

Good thing I still don't really remember anything from watching the original FMA. I guess this would get a little boring over time if you remembered absolutely everything what had happened before and what was going to happen.

Not that bad an episode I suppose. There was some attempt to make it touching etc I, however, was not touched even close to the point I would start to cry - I never really had a very strong "relationship" with Mr. Hughes.

PS. Is it just me or does it really sound more like Glacier than "Gracia", which her name apparently seems to be subbed as in Eclipse fansub?

It was a so so episode, I did not care much about the drama. But towards the end it was interesting. Also I wonder what happened to the guy from that other country, I'm sure he let himself to be captured to investigate something.

Interesting episode.
So Maria is arrested and poor Jean has Lust as his girlfriend!
It's nice to see some of the minor characters get more involved with the storyline as compared with the original.
The plot thickens....can't wait for the next episode.

Whoa what the hell is happening? It looks like the Homonculus guys are winning. Damn of course they would win since the president is in kahoots with them, lmao. But still, how can Ed and Al solve this big problem? It'll be hard since it's an inside job.

Okay so the aftermath of Hughes death was over. The scene between Winry and Ed inside that room made me think that they were going to have sex or something, I was wrong though.

I can't deny this was quite a dramatic/sad episode, I couldn't help it when Winry mentioned she wanted Hughes-san to try her apple pie...then my eyes started to water.

Damn Jean is dating Lust? -shudders-

Ross has be arrested? Woah..

Next episode I think that'd be some Roy-in-action episode? I hope that'd be interesting.

I still feel bad for Ross, she didn't witness anything yet seems like she'll be treated as a prisoner on next episode.

A decent episode, Brotherhood does well with the action and the comedy, but man is it truly(so far) lacking in the emotional string pulling like the first show had. The scene with Winry shedding a fucking waterfall about applepie, I really couldn't help but roll my eyes. I can handle and enjoy heartbreaking scenes that make you sad, but this was just plain sappy.

I really liked this episode, despite my expectations for it(usually I don't watch the next ep preview). Ling is in prison in other words, he didn't mess at least for one episode.
Although he'll inevitably get role someday, today is not this day!
This is one of my favorite eps, because it is concentrated on Hughes, one of my 2-3 favorites of this show. It's really good that the pace slowed down for nothing else but Hughes. I hope next ep will be good too, but I watched 15 episodes of this today, and I'm gonna watch just one ep from other anime before going to sleep. Cross your fingers, because I don't want to be disappointed in the following ep of Brotherhood.

I'd totally let Barry cut up Jean's girlfriend xD Anyway the drama parts of this show are really well done. It always gets to me...

So, the Homunculi were behind Roy Mustang's trasfer to Central and they now know he found out about Research Laboratory 5 and the philosopher's stone. Crap, it seems like they're controlling everything.

Twist ending was ruined since they revealed in a minute earlier during the Envy and Lust conversation. Well, I guess it wasn`t ruined since I`m sure they meant to do that.

what a emotional rollercoaster.

so Barry the Chopper is getting protected due to his information.

that bastard Envy switching to focker and manage to slip by with the real one.

what the hell Roy doesn't have a eyepatch?? but in the last episode he had one when he was interrogating Barry the chopper.

poor Gracie :(

learning the truth behind Hughes death, but still didn't shed any anger towards Ed and Al.

Ed, Al and Winry :(

being downed like this makes me sad :(

damn that Envy bastard!!!!

and what the hell Maria Ross getting blamed all of a sudden??

damn Homunculus.

and wow Havoc's girlfriend is Lust O______O

definitely getting different than the first season.

then again this follows the manga so this is faithful to the source material :)

cannot wait for the next one :D

Well, we're a quarter of the way through the episodes now! Got to say I'm ranking this as up there with the likes of Death Note. Honestly this show has been superb!

The people complaining about the pacing are dumber than a piece of wood. This was superb storytelling and an excellent pace to draw out the neccesary emotional impact and the mistery parts.

The Homunculi make excellent villains.

I just realised why Hughes used the public phone booth, he was 10 steps ahead of everyone. He already knew about King Bradley's true identity. I seriously have so much of respect for him now.

That episode was quite tear jerking. The tension leading up to the Elric brothers and Winry finding out Hughes is dead was unbearable.

Well, with the top guy in the military on the villains' side, they can pretty much do anything.

A reminder of Hughes death, and a pretty impacting one at that...

Stuff is going down too, and everything is falling into place of those Deadly Sin people.
