This episode was all sorts of badassery!!! Seriously though this episode was handled very well imo, even the transitions from dramatic scenes at the hospital to comedic scenes with Edward felt smooth.

Great episode. Some of the SD stuff was weird but the action more than made up for it. That cliffhanger is pure evil.

Great episode.
But they shouldn't have cut the abduction scene.
Also they kinda skipped the whole surprise that Ling & Ranfan felt when the Fuhrer turned out to be a Homonculus, is more like a normal human's. All in all the episode was teh best yet & I expect the coming ones to be just as good.

This was a pretty awesome episode. I liked it, at least, a lot. :D I felt pretty bad for Havoc though...

The subs were terrible though. Seems to be a general consensus among most of the posters here that the subs were pretty dismal this time round. I ignored them most of the time and just understood using my own understanding of Japanese. ._. Kind of defeats the purpose of having subs...

so havoc is paralyzed, marcoh has been kidnapped, scar is back, and gluttony and wrath(pride?) are fighting against the ninja and her master, next episode winry shows up, very emotional episode i would guess

Sorry.... I just had to post that ...

I think mainly because two reasons together ... Most of the episodes watched have been recaps, even so they were still rushed and have shoddy character depth.

i can't help but laugh at this stupid link . Mind checkin the ratings now . I keep a tap on ratings these days . . And fma has gone up really well over the past few months . Its averagin over 3.5 and is constantly gettin rated more than naruto . And about dvd sales . Ha ah . Fma has the highest sales among ongoing long anime . . And i say LONG ANIME . . Moe/emo blobs should stop bad mouthin fma and stick to shit like k-on . (which is averagin 1.5 points in japan)

it had low rating because
1# the start of FMA:B was "just a remake" of FMA, mostly
2# these episodes were better in FMA anyway.

But after it split, it's interesting

I ended when things were getting interesting. Can't wait for next week.

Also tomorrow the last episode airs. I wonder if this will speed up the dub release. If not I might get stuck watching the dub every week for nearly a year. LOL

Poor Havoc!
I've never seen Mustang look so sad since the death of Hughes.
The fight between Scar, Edward, and Alphonse was nice!
Awesome cliffhanger!

Wow this episode really turned me on. I'm starting to understand what's going on. So my guess would be that Holhen guy and his homonculus are trying to open the gate to the truth and they need sacrifices in order to do that.

Anyways about Mustang, I can see that he is a very interesting character. I'm starting to like him more and more. He got this sense of seriousness and also goofyness, lol.

About the last scene. I'm really excited to see what's going to happen next. As usual, Wrath unleashes his almight powers once again. I hope Ran Fan is alright. Maybe Ling also got a super power? :P

That was one amazing episode, I'm so sad for Havoc.
It ended up in a way that makes you want to watch more! I hope Furher doesn't kill Ran Fan...

- Ed admits that he is short.
- Al puts Ed's soul back in his body, lmao.
- Al squishing Roy in the car.
- Flashy Ed helping people around town.
- Bradley's epic speed.

Loved this episode. <3

Yeah, the episode is full of epicness. I wonder what chance does Lan Fan have against Wrath =\
Enough funny stuff here. Ed admitted that he's small. Ed asked Winry to stay win to be able to fix his automail. Ling was pretty much fun too... even though I detest him.

LoL at the scene where Ed asked Winry to stay to fix his automail because he was "pretty sure it'll break" xD And I absolutely loved the style in which the scene Ed was helping people around the city was animated. It was one of those rare moments in anime where I actually laugh.

As for the rest... I'm really starting to like Roy. He's able to keep his cool all the time, but you can see he cares for his comrades. The Ed & Al vs. Scar fight was great and I was surprised Ed thought of such a plan to get to the Homunculi. And heck, Bradley is exposing himself too much. Didn't expect him to do that.

Also, that scene before the OP... On last episode's thread I said I was almost sure Hoheinheim wasn't "Father". Now I'm starting to have my doubts again. But wouldn't it be kinda stupid to make a scene like that while wanting to keep the mystery? I mean, it'd be way too predictable. So I keep my bet that he isn't.

Oh, and what was that about Ed and Al's bodies being connected? Well, that way Al would have been receiving enough nutrition and sleep and it kinda remembered me of that episode in which Ed said "I'll eat for both of us". But I didn't understand how he got there. It didn't make much sense to me.

so the revelation that their bodies are interconnected to each other.

that's why Ed is able to sleep for the sake of Al not sleeping.

it's sad Havoc had to retired early on :(

definitely hard to get left behind, but Roy is a caring person after all

Dr. Marcoh has been kidnapped huh??

finally Scar appears!!!

Ling Yao is so sly ordering all the food he can eat XD

funny when Winry hit Ed and his soul was about to go Al puts it back ^^

that bastard yakuza white suit guy has been there all along/

could be envy all along.

ahahaha Ed is so popular in this town ^^

the fight between Scar and Ed is amaizng :D

Ling Yao and Ran Fan vs Glutonny and King Bradley :P

gonna be amazing in the next epiosode :)

I have to admit that I really dislike Ed..I liked this anime, I really do,yet main character is a annoying brat. Remember the Ed's helping to residents scene. I hated it.
Also, Ed's protests about his height.. It really bugs me.. Just accept the fact that you are damn too short.
