Good to see Ross back again, I liked her oath of loyalty and the salute. Riza, don't tell me she's going to bite the dust! Please no! Mustang was so cool and funny when he was on the phone with Riza. XD Anyway, great episode!

I knew Mustang had a plan! My faith in him is restored. To be honest, I don't know where this anime could be heading, I haven't read the manga or seen FMA. What could the father want from the philosophers stone? If it's something stupid like world domination, I will honestly cry from frustration.

Also, the father looked really similar to the guy from the myth.

Roy Mustang is such an epic character. 10/10 this anime is unpredictable for me.

Ha, I knew it!! Now, I feel like an accomplished detective ahahaha. To think that I was right about Barry the Choppah, too.
Mustang, you awesome bastard!!
Heh, so that's what Winry's parents looks like, huh. It could be that Scar just got his arm from his brother and went rampage and killed her parents.

So as expected Ross is still alive. Seems like Riza will be in trouble next episode.

Well shit, Scar has it coming his way now. Glad to see Winry's family fleshed out a bit here. Gluttony vs Hawkeye? Hmm, I have a feeling they'll both live through that. Then again, "death of the undying"? Could that mean Gluttony is done for? Interesting.

But most of all... Ross is alive! Brilliant plan by Mustang.

Ed shirtless! :D
It was clear that Mustang would save Ross...
Ed decided that he will revenge the Rockbells
And the real body of Barry shows up, I don't remember much but I hope Riza is going to be alright.

Interesting episode, not for the newfound Maria, but for what happens next, the stories are very different from the FMA, the scenario on Rockbell and more carry much fervor in history because of the difference, not bad dialogues during the narration, drawings and animations average. The twist on the operation of espionage carried out by Mustang, receive my favor. ^_^

It's like a snow avalanche came in roll. Barry vs. Barry LOL that was so funny.

I'm so glad that Maria is alive, but I had a feeling that she will be protected by her friends. Sneaky Mustang :D

Oh god Ed's reaction when he found out who killed Winrys parents. That will go crazy.

And pls no Riza has to fight against Gluttony, when something happened to her I will be so mad, because she's such a great character, so pls no ;_ ;

I hated that Barry sooo much in 2003 version...
Is it weird that I kinda like him right now? XD

And I had a feeling it would turn out something like this with Maria's case ^^

Man this show is really good. I love how everything is all connected with one another. So many feels as of lately.. Ed/Al/Winry finding out about Hughes death, and now this episode, Ed finding out about the cause of Winry's parents' death... omg

Everything regarding plot has been already said.
Mustang is the best! And I almost began to think he's going mad or sth. Silly me.

On a different note... when did Edward get abs?! :3

Good, it's confirmed it was all a way for Ross to escape. - There was no way Mustang would believe a rumour that quick and act on it.

Funny to see Barry fight his own body.
Also it seems instead of Mustang, Scar killed Winry's parents.

OH, HELL YEAAA! When I first read/watched this, these where my favourite episodes/chapters. I remember there was a filler episode from the 2003 version that was light hearted day in the life of Mustang and his man. And I loved it, since then I was hoping for some kind of spin off with these characters.

And now I’m watching Mustang smock out the enemy with clever planning and organising. If Hiromu Arakawa makes another action adventure manga, I hope she bases it on these kinds of adventures. These few episodes are infinitely better than anything I saw in jormungand.

Fucking Scar killed the Rockbells? The inevitable fight between Edward and Scar became a grudge match now.

Cannot wait!

Maria Ross is,alive! As I thought, Mustang wouldn't simply kill her, and with his mind that kind of an intrigue was really possible.

Xerxes looked nice. We also learned some more about Winry's parents.

And that ending... I dislike bad cliffhangers, but this one was definitely very good. I hope everything is gonna be alright eventually.

What? Killing the people who tended his injuries on battlefield is so uncharacteristic of Scar. He spared the life of the Amestrian who betrayed him and sold him to the military. Surely he wouldn't kill the people whom he's indebted to. He's no bloodthirsty psychopath. There had better be a good explanation or I'm calling bullshit with this one. Roy's phone sequence was brilliant, the guy's a genius! We haven't seen May for a while, I hope she'll have more screentime. Ever since the pace slowed up a bit the episodes were improving steadily. I'm satisfied with where the show's going.

I was wondering why so many people still love Roy despite what he just did to Maria but once I found out what actually happened that night, I let out one of the biggest sighs of relief I had in a while and ended up loving his character a lot more because that final part of his complicated escape plan was done so brilliantly. I can't believe that I was happy to get fooled. I hope she'll get to Xing safely.

The Ishbalans weren't entirely exterminated after all and a lot of them were really familiar with the Rockbells. Scar being Winry's parents' murderer really was an unfortunate surprise.

Barry's having fun fighting his own body but Rize's in really big trouble, getting cornered by Gluttony in a tower of all places. The preview's very worrying too...

So Roy explains his plan to save Maria Ross and try to expose the homunculi.

Also, Scar killed Winry's parents. The explanation will come later, but this will make the fight between Ed and Scar even better
