Alphonse's fight with Barry the Chopper was awesome - did Barry get... funnier? And Scar's interuption was not very surprising but at least we saw Edward get deeper and deeper into Laboratory 5~ Want to see what happens in the end :)

Amazing sig set thanks to -DraGonZ-

Why can I not remember a SINGLE thing about Barry the Chopper? Also, I'm so intrigued by the mysterious homunculi and am eager to find out more about them. They didn't explain the homunculi already did they? As in I didn't miss anything?

Slicer's brother is no more :(

i hope Al won't do that kind of thing.

damn that's really fucked up how tucker is still alive and maybe had a change of heart???

creating Nina's image through chimera's??

it seems we delve into even more deep territory.

and wow lots of new faces like the guy that was tied down.

it seems Kimblee was not Hughes, Maes since he kinda look like him and had the same voice when i first saw him with the flashback with Maroh's Ishbaal incident along with Roy Mustang and Armstrong.

lot's of flashbacks with Scar's brother, so he went mad because he couldn't revive his wife??

was he able to create the philosopher's stone??

not to mention he didn't died in the missile?? how the hell did scar has his brother's arm attach to him

getting tense, will Ed be able to create the Philosopher's stone??

Shit, Tucker was disturbing. I'd forgotten it was him.

I've found Barry really annoying tbh.

Greed seems like a badass.

I still hate Gluttony.

everybody is remembering Nina but what about the dog i remember the dog (poor dog although i don't remember your name though)

Greed and this other guy from prison seem bad ass and especially Greed.

it didn't seem like Alfonso stood a change against gluttony damn.

at first i thought wrong enemy Barry not fight scar but it seemed he could also get into his head by pretending to know about his arm if its really true i don't think so.

well that caught me by surprise about Tucker i was actually sort off forgetting Nina's death which was really sad to me now i remember it all again. i ain't sure if it is a good thing he tries to recreate Nina cause it won't be her anyway just a creation so maybe its better she isn't recreated but it sure is good he had a change of heart or it at least seemed that way.

then again he seemed to know Ed would come one day and he was having a creepy smile when Ed said i am not a normal alchemist. maybe he hopes that Ed will help him since no normal alchemist can make the philosopher stone at least that what we are told so far i don't know if that will be proven wrong or not.

it didn't seem like tucker was like that from the start since he said that he failed so many times and turned into that so that means that he made him self like that :O

i wanted to say up to next episode but sadly its already 7:30 am here and i didn't have any sleep yet so i need to sleep :( so it will have to wait till later damn. (people wear watches and having clocks but still have no time)

So while I enjoyed the fighting and all that, why is Scar's older brother so different from the manga? I understand that it's not the same, but to make him some alchemy crazed idiot? I loved him in the manga. ):
I also kind of just wished that Nina's father stayed dead. He doesn't deserve any more screen time for what he did.

Now THIS was a great episode. Probably my favorite so far. Just the right amount of fucked up creepy material. Tucker's body was disturbing. Really adds to the insanity of this science and really shows what this stuff can do. I can't help but wonder if Ed will turn into a mad scientist or go insane or something. When Tucker said that it can't be completed by an ordinary alchemist, I knew Ed would say "I'm no ordinary alchemist." The look in his eyes when he said that, teary and determined, made me really think of what he is getting himself into.

The flashback of Scar's backstory was great as well. The way his brother looked when we walked out of the house was disturbing. This is some messed up stuff, this series is getting a lot more interesting fast.

Great episode. Tucker looked really weird! I can't believe he's a chimera now, but it serves him right. Still experimenting and making Ninas though... That guy has some serious issues.

The plot thickens. I get the feeling some real serious stuff is about to go down... -- 4/5

Episode that manages to keep expectations very high, almost to overcome what one could expect, the plot more intriguing and formidable. Narrative that puts many irons in the fire, I hope they know carry it all together, drawings and animations that you do forgive the slight decrease had previously.

Finally a real divergence between FMA and FMAB has occurred. This show is getting SO dark. Tucker's return was already nuts, but it seems like Scar's brother in this show was insane and had some much darker plan in motion. Good stuff, can't wait to see where this goes!

Good all around episode. But it didn't make sense that Ed wanted the Slicer brothers to live and Tucker to be dead. They are all terrible people.

All kinds of effed up stuff happening.
Tucker still being alive was an unexpected event, then again they used prisoners for experiments so it wouldnt have been weird to use Tucker or let Tucker use those prisoners for experiments.

It's because he's comparing their brotherly love to his own love for his brother, if he allowed one of the brothers to "die" he would have to accept the fact that his brother is not human either (he isn't at this moment obviously) since they said they're not really human anymore, just a soul bound to an armour.

I normally don't comment after episodes, but Tucker showing up in that form was so disturbing for me I just had to say something. Great episode all around though.
