Edward: the cycle of life only goes one direction.
all is one and one is all. surprisingly enough those words can be said in reverse order as well. not like it matters in their case XD

that dude with the mask sure is a nice guy.
not only did he look over them but he helped them figure out the riddle.
oh what a generous person he is.

"There are probably no wild animals on the island, either."

Yet, we saw rabbits, foxes, and snakes...

Yeah and he also beat the living shit out of them. If I was Ed I would've lunged at his throat when he found out who was behind that the whole time.

It's not like Disney are the first to think on this case.

This episode was OK, but I want to see something revolving around the plot once again.

Interesting episode was quite nice to see some of their past training! I do wonder who this new character is on the ending!

love the the quote "All is One and One is All"

guess they had to experience Near Death state to realize what that means.

poor rabbit :(

but that's how survival is.

and the mask guy which is the one that rode them in island, doesn't he look short when he's not wearing any mask??

finally that spying kid shows up.

hope that kid doesn't do any fishy things.

That episode reminds me a little bit the serie Lost. The Others (just showing the feets), the flashbacks. Maybe a coincidence... =)

I like how they mixed up the present and the past in the island events, of course in the manga and Brotherhood the present part didn't happen .. they didn't actually went back to the island. but i liked it. great episode... and who the hell is that brat in the final scene ?!

That rabbit was so moe.

I really like how this series explores alchemy and delves into the various concepts that comprise it. The philosophy of one is all, all is one. Not to knock Brotherhood, but I do prefer how this one focuses on the philosophical elements and deeper thoughts.

I'm sure that month on the island when they were kids was invaluable training. That developed their character, survival skills, and mindset in probably more ways than anything else they have ever done. That was a good move on sensei's part. It was cool to send them there again after finding out they tried to transmute their mother. Remind them about life and death and how it all connects in the life cycle. Pretty cool episode.

Pretty nice backstory episode, but at the same time these past few episodes are taking their toll and I'm getting a little bit bored waiting for some more story progression.

That boy was kind of creepy at the end... -- 4/5

This is an episode of transition, although this may not like, has its uses. Good building the subplot. The increase mysteries, who knows what lies beneath, I am not convinced the boy.

Had a feeling the masked man was either the husband or guy on the boat.

Also kind of a weird scene to end the episode on.

I like seeing Ed and Al when they are younger. I always forget Al wasn't always the big armor thing he is now.

Kinda boring since I have already seen it in it's manga form. Okay episode.
I like how the Anime community acts like a bunch of Commie hippies, "We the Anime community!"

It's just a bunch of different circlejerks who all hate each other and their own kind.
