Epic episode was epic. Too bad that the preview ruined the cliffhanger.

Awesome episode! Roy you're such a badass in this episode. Yeah, Im kinda confused between Roy is Envy or Riza is Envy at the end of the episode. It could be anyoneD:
If I remember, I read the part where Roy fight between Envy, but I can't remember who is who at the end^^

Well, can't wait for next episode.

Another good episode. Nice plan they've got going on by blaming those at Central for the coup d'etat. Nice cliffhanger at the end but imo it was pretty darn easy to guess who Envy is without the preview or manga. Mustang in rage mode would be cautious of anyone approaching him so there's no way he'd let anyone follow his back so easily. If Envy were Riza, she'd be showing a big stupid grin at the end when she pointed the gun at Mustang.

Quite nice episode, Mustang is totally wicked with his fire displays =)
Guess the expression "revenge is a dish best served cold" don't really work for him xD

As always though I'm really puzzled about what's going on inside Ed's head, seriously he's more emotionally confused than a teenage girl with her first period..

It's probably because those white zombie things are just like Al, human souls attached to a body they don't belong to. It's not like they chose to be like that.

"How would you like your Envy? Medium or well-done? Or burnt to ashes?"
-Mustang

Episode speaks for itself. Mustang was the man here.

Guess no one noticed yet(or maybe everyone did) but Mustang uses different hands for different attacks. I only noticed it here in this chapter of the manga. Mustang uses his right hand for big ass explosions like when he burned Big Envy. His left hand is for pinpoint and accurate attacks like Envy's tounge and eyes. Just wanted to be cocky just once XD.

Preview wasn't too much spoiler for the cliffhanger but I guess you can guess which one's fake.

It's getting closer and closer to the manga now.

Here's the manga panel of that scene (I removed the spoiler texts), Riza did have a big grin when pointing the gun at Mustang:

Ah, Mustang. How's that Roaring Rampage of Revenge workin' out for ya?

Awesome episode. The quality of Roy's fire was just amazing, imo. I think that everything's already been said about this episode and how kick ass it was!

the only time I had a big silly grin in this episode was when envy was talking to Roy about the truth. I just couldn't help myself. I think the reason I like envy is because Envy is one of the seven deadly sins that I relate to.

As someone already said, the episode is over just before one my favorite scenes, a really funny one. I expected it to come, but the ending suddenly appeared =(

Anyway, great episode ! The broadcasting part was well done, but of course the best is Mustang's fight with an extra for burning eyeballs. Envy transforming in Hugues' wife was great too, this guy really is a bastard though he's a very good character.

10 episodes left. They can't continue with 1.5 chapter by episode... Luckily, longer chapters are coming =D

Looks like somebody went and gave the episode a 1 AGAIN....probably didn't even watch it!! Trolls like this seriously piss me off. Did I read somewhere on here that it was a naruto fan? Is there really nothing that can undo it?

*sigh* Well, at least this was one of the few episodes that had me grinning like an idiot all day today! Roy and Riza....never feel like we get enough of them....

This is a good example of not believing what you hear in the news. Damn this is the power of fire for you, Mustang is awesome with just a snap of his finger he reduces all enemies in ashes! How terrifying?!

Maybe just an Envy fan

Mustang vs Envy was a much anticipated fight, no matter how creepy, mean (ugly/true form) Envy is because he sounds like detective Conan I could never hate him even though he killed Hugues which is the first character I like in FMA.

Trivia: at the end which one of the two is Envy?

Only thing I disliked about the episode. A military woman deciding to follow after her pissed-off flame-happy commander who's fighting a shapechanger.
She doesn't even seem to consider the option that she could be reduced to a burnt cinder (kinda like the ones surrounding her, which were immortal and were still killed. And said commander wasn't even serious when he did that.

Envy amused me this episode, fail-transforming multiple times, and the screaming when his eyeballs were burnt out, twice!
I guess Mai Chan's lack of reasoning can be excused for bringing him back to Central for the flame induced beat-down he's suffering now.

Episode seems wholly focused on Mustang, vs the switching back and forth between the other battles that are raging at the same time.
We'll get to see more of the Sloth beating next time though.

Ohhh man, this was insane. One of the things I really hated about the 2003 anime was nobody really found out exactly who killed Hughes, except for Ed (but then he got stuck in Germany, so it doesn't really matter) raaaaaaage

This beatdown was long deserved in coming, especially since Brotherhood Envy is an even eviller character than in the 2003 show.

As for the end, I'm going to propose a wild theory that neither of them is Envy. I suspect Riza is fully ready to kill Roy because of how psycho he's going here (I mean, hell, if Ed and Scar of all people are worried about his mental state, that goes double for Riza).

Other than that... the propaganda broadcast at the beginning did leave me a little uneasy. The way the citizens are talking makes it sound like the common people really support Bradley. Bradley, the guy who explicitly stated that he was 100% intent on committing genocide against the Ishvalans? Bradley, the guy who started wars with all 3 of Amestris's neighboring countries? This is the kind of leader the common people support?

Considering that there is no chance in hell Bradley is dead after the train explosion, I wonder how the citizens will react when he returns... will they then turn on Mustang and the Briggs brigades?

At any rate, I wonder who exactly knows that Bradley is a Homunculus? Obviously, we remember back in episode 22 that Ling told Ed, Al, Roy, and Dr. Knox about it. Plus Riza knows since she was his secretary for a time. I bring this up because it sounds like the rest of Mustang's team doesn't know this.

Well, then, now that I've got that off my chest... I LOL'ed when a citizen was saying "I hope Selim wasn't killed" or something like that. Don't worry about that, man, Selim is just fine...

I want more of the Xing power trio. Mei Chang and Xiao Mei are nice for indulging my inner loli and pet-lover, but where's Ling, Lan Fan, and Fu, dammit?!?!

There was a conversation at some point that (I think it was between Feury and Maria Ross) confirmed that they at least knew that Selim was a homunculus; It's not that hard to believe that either Hawkeye or Mustang told the rest of the team about the furher at some point offscreen. In fact, it would be pretty ridiculous at this point if they -didn't-.
