THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, could Ed be actually dead this time? It's a lot more possible in this series due to its love of killing off main characters.

Only 1 episode and the film left :O

the world beyond the gate is like the normal world with wars everywhere.
So does that mean that in that story our world become the source of alchemy ?
sigh.

I was shocked by what happened to Ed at the end of this episode, but I wasn't sad. I was almost in tears when I thought Al was going to go back before Scar died.

The fuck so the other side of the gate is actually the earth O_O that was unexpected!
But damn that scene with Ed and the zeppelin was fucked, good that he made it back to the other world again!

But fuck that ending did Ed really die O_O can't be right? Fucked up well up to the last episode :D

not really earth but another dimension where alchemy doesn't exist.

so this ed from this world died and Ed from the Alchemy world came back from the gate.

guess to pass on a gate you have to die, i think the reason he didn't permanently died is because he used the other Ed as a compensation.

i agree with Hohenheim that you don't need to pay a price for everything like loving your children and such.

so Hohenheim will die in a world without his children or his love one.

pretty sad and depressing way to die.

wow Roy getting beat up by that General O___O

i smirk a little when Ed was beating envy and when he turn into Roy Mustang, he said he'll enjoy beating the shit out of him.

so Hohenheim's first child was actually Envy??

i wonder if he has multiple children or is it only Ed, Al and Envy??

it was reveal that it was only Dante and Ed and Al's mother that he loved. so i don't think there's any besides the two.

also what is inside of that box??

the general's remains??

Ed don't die!!!!!!!!!! T_________T

only 1 episode left, how will they resolve this??

I like how Gluttony has a really strong attachment to Lust. I was hoping he was going to chomp Wrath to pieces once Ed told him that he killed Lust, but that didn't happen ;T Oh well.

poor hohenheim will die alone.
And envy was ed and al`s half brother? didn`t see THAT coming.

"That`s the easiest face to punch!" LOL

I can't believe the deaths in the alternate world fuel their alchemy.

There's this thing I've always been wondering about...

If our lives here becomes the flow of energy for Alchemy Land, what do we gain, again?
Are we getting the losing hand on the phrase that "the universe does not always work on equivalent exchange"?

Personally I do like the parallel universe concept, but if we really wanna follow that theory, there should be a countless number of parallel universe, hence there shouldn't be only one gate inside everyone.

Sigh.. Ed getting stabbed made my heart bleed a little.

Twist here, twist there, and breathtaking lines. I can't help but quote them myself o_o

I'd rather be considered a child than follow

I was seriously rewatching just for this episode. Envy's true face and the death of (both) Edwards. It's very cynical to think that the other Ed had to die so he could return. I like how alchemy balances out these various characters' philosophies and ideologies, using a fictional science to bring about very real concepts and ideas. Still the most memorable and shocking episode of FMA.

And Envy is Ed and Al's brother?!?!

The other side of the gate is our world?? /mindblown

I'm not surprised Envy is the homunculus of Ed and Al's brother. We already knew that Hohenheim created him, so it wasn't a far leap, especially considering Hohenheim and Dante were together at one point.

Ed surely can't be dead, at least not yet! But that was a serious wound to be sure...

Interesting episode, the last pieces find their place and the puzzle is complete (or so it seems), giving a logical and credible to all that has happened so far. The twists are interesting and the final despite not hitting a lot, it makes the situation still enjoyable to follow.

Envy and Wrath should've switched their names, I mean Envy hates everything, which makes "wrath" a more fitting name for him, while Wrath wants Edward's body, which makes "envy" a better word to describe him.

Anyway, this is the fourth time I'm re watching this show and I still enjoy it every time!

The whole 'real' world on the other side of the gate has clearly been really divisive amongst viewers. My bro doesn't seem to like it very much, but I thought it was really cool. It seems to be tied in well enough, and serves to show the parallel that in our world it is technology, not alchemy, that can go too far and result in things like atomic bombs. Ed dying was unexpected too, I wonder if Al can heal him quickly using the stone? :( All's well that ends well, so please be good episode 51! Got my fingers crossed.

The real fitting parallel is that between the nation that Ed served and Nazi germany.

I mean yeah, the leader of Amestris is called Fuhrer and he is a war mongering dictator lol, that parallel has been obvious from the beginning. Which is interesting because they chose to set the 'real' world in WWI instead of WWII, even though they showed atomic bombs. They might have messed up a bit there.

Hohenheim said something to Ed like, "The deadliest weapon is yet to come, you saw it in the gate right?" or something like that. And then they showed the mushroom cloud on screen. It's around 7:30 into episode 50.

Awesome knowing that the "alchemy" world is fueled by the deaths of a different reality, the one where mechanical technology has advanced more than alchemy.
So is the Fuhrer basically Hitler then? - Kinda effed up having to compare the similarities between the 2 realities then.

Envy is so comical, but his backstory here is so good, better than just being some homunculus. What an ending that was.
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.
