So after all it isn't Hohenheim. I guess this would have a bigger impact without that silly dream last episode... But oh, well, the epicness of this episode is still there. Scar was pretty cool there, finally he's directing his anger at the right guys. And Gluttony was killed. But apparently, as long as they return to Father when they die, they can be recreated. With or without their memories, it seems. Also, why can Father use alchemy like that? What did he do to the room and why can Mei and Scar use alchemy there while Ed and Al can't? Is it because they use different types of alchemy and he only canceled the Western Alchemy? His comparison between humans and insects, what Envy said about the prosper world having not been created by humans and the way Ed interpreted the stone inscriptions in episode 26 get me to think he was indeed able to become the "perfect being". Though maybe not all that perfect, or else he wouldn't have a need for whatever he's doing, with all that importance of the human sacrifices... Well, whatever he is doing, it has to do with the Truth.

I was kind of sad about Ling but then I realized what a badass Greed is (for a villian) I love how he's so chill about everything while everyone else is being melodramatic

great episoede over all 5/5 but I do agree with deiboom about the action being a bit rushed

so the guy really is not Hohenheim huh?? :P

he seem to know Hohenheim very well.

maybe he's brother??

he can even use Alchemy without any motion O___O

and yeah what kind of magic did he use to be able to render the brother's alchemy useless??

so since this guy drank Greed when he died and turned into a philosopher's stone.

he lost his memories and was used inside of Ling.

i wonder if this Greed will remember his old memories since this guy can recreate the homunculus with memories intact.

now Ling Yao has Greed powers and swordsmanship.

i laugh when May Chang's image of Ed who is supposed to be taller and gentleman shattered XD

i wonder how May Chang and Scar was able to use Alchemy??

scar has a special alchemy through his hand and May Chang's alchemy is from east.

wtf Scar almost died from that guy.

i laugh when scar used Al's metal head for that explosion XD

so Ling is still inside of his body and was only taken over huh?

Gluttony dies, but he can still be revived with intact memories of course.

love the revelations!!

Gluttony dies, guess he still can be revived memories intact huh?

judging by the new opening, there seems to be even more characters in the upcoming episodes.

i love this series!!!

can't wait for the next one :D

Is the man who is the creator of Gluttony,Envy,Wrath and Lust also father of Al and Ed or I am just making it up ?
They(Ed,Envy and Lin) have finally been saved...
An eye has just been opened on the creator's forehead!!?? Scaryyy.
Greed took over the control of Ling's body... Noooo.

No not Von Hohenheim, but someone who looks very similar to him. I think the mystery of who their father is, will take a lot longer to reveal.

Greed/Ling will be an interesting player in this drama. And Scar will be a valuable ally too.

Give LING back!! Good to see Greed again. Who is that "Father", he seems to know Hhh. Great to see Scar there, and May Chang. Overall great episode.

P.S. "Father" is hax.

HOoooly crap I LOVE where this went with Ling. I love that he did the unexpected and embraced the power. I love that there's a new-old Greed (who I really liked already). Awesome development and can't wait to see what happens to him.

I also liked the new OP. The voice is a little nasally but it's a good tune, fits the mood of the series.

What almost ruined the episode was Mei's entrance. It was clumsy, not funny, and just stilted the entire atmosphere. Why the fuck do they insist putting an unfunny gag show in the middle of a tense confrontation between three homunculi, Father, and the Elrics? It was wildly out of place. That little panda, no matter how cute, is out of place. If you'd removed Mei from everything that has happened so far, nothing really changes. Hopefully she either becomes relevant or goes away.

The ensuing fight was awesome, though. Scar is OP; he's so badass when his rage has been diverted to the right people. Father is even more OP, which makes him fun to watch.

Ok,so Father is not thier Father.Now the question is why the look so similar.

Nice to see the end of gluttony.

Greed Ling is awesome but I want normal Ling back! Good fight scenes and story though. Could a Scar, Mei, Ed, and Al alliance be in the works for the future, perhaps? And so "father" isn't actually Hohenheim, interesting. Also, Gluttony is gone now? (For now, anyways)

What an episode :o

This Hohenheim double or what ever he is, seems to know a lot more about alchemy as anyone else. I didn't really understand what he did so that Ed and El couldn't use Alchemy anymore. Even more surprising was that Scar had no problems to use it still.

Hmm so Greed got the body of Ling but at one scene you could see that Ling is there. Can't wait to see what will happen with him.

Looking forward for the next episode!

I KNEW HE WASN'T THEIR FATHER!!! I'm curious about why he has his same face though :/
His father can't be one of those monsters (homon...etc) as he was eable to have children, but why doesn't he seem to age? I bet he asked her wife not to die, because he knew someday she would and he can't (maybe?) :(
I was so happy to see Al's body (though it's really deteriorated). I don't know why, but that scene made me put on Ed's shoes (as a big sister) and imagined as if my little sister would be on Al's condition. Of course I cried XD
Ling will be eable to come back to it's senses, but I think he will die when he does (as Greed said there was "no going back"). I bet he will do because of Lan Fan :) If he doesn't die, PLEASE make them be together <3

Oh, and I know it's from an old episode, but when Winry was crying because she couldn't shoot Scar, AND THEN ED HUGGED HER!!!! And then he said he would make her cry tears of happiness and she understood she loved him :')
I bet she will cry of happiness not only when they get their bodies back, but also when he proposes to her <3 <3 <3

Ok, now I'm done! Wow, this show keeps getting better and better!!

"Father" and van Hohenheim are not the same person. Father is quite strong, of course. And Scar vs. Father was epic.

Father at the beginning was really funny lol

Loved how Scar got to know the truth like, in the right time and by the right person
And he even believed!
Tired of animes these days that a secret remains a secret for eternity and ends up creating more and more misunderstanding, and when people tell them the truth they don't even believe anymore

So it's not Hohenheim, just someone that looks similar to him, maybe a clone, or from a different timeline / universe ... idk. - His powers are way too overpowered though.
Weird how Scar and the little girl could still use their alchemy powers aswell.

We see Ling still hasn't given up on his body, reacting to Edwards comment abour Lan Fan.

They managed to show the power difference between "Father" and Scar, while still allowing Scar to be pretty badass. Actually they all had their moments in this one, but it was clear none of them are currently any match for Father if he was actually bothered about making any effort. Decent episode overall

I'm confused. So father is not the same as Edward's father but he looks exactly the same? Wtf

Goddammit Ling. That Greed for a philosopher stone actually made you Greed. He doesn't deserve to be Emperor after that stunt.

And Scar is going to be a good guy. I know it.

The jokes from Mei were out of place in such an intense episode. But damn, did not see Father being that powerful and looking like a clone of Hohenheim. Also didn't see Greedling coming. All this and still not even halfway through the show yet..

Edward sure knows how to make quite an entrance, bursting through Gluttony's gapig stomach with a gross giant monster and the prince of Xing. Their first meeting with Father was pretty peculiar with the big guy awkwardly asking their relation to Hohenheim while healing them without the slightest hint of effort.

Ling got his body taken over by Greed and Gluttony's reached his regeneration limit. Since Father can just recreate his babies, I wonder if there's any reason why he hasn't recreated Lust yet.
