  • After seeing the scene in Mustang's car, I felt like the series was ready to end. They should have wrapped up the series with that scene, instead of showing it prematurely.moreless

    I know there's a lot more in the episode, but the scene that I'll always think of in reference to this episode is the car scene. It's probably my favorite scene in the whole anime.

    Ed and Mustang have a meaningful talk about war, about what's important, and about Ed's decision to destory the Philosopher's Stone in order to save humanity.

    After that scene, I felt like abandoning my fanfictions, feeling as though there was nothing more a person could say that wasn't already said. But, the feeling didn't stick after the next episodes. The end of the series and the movie made me feel as though there were still things I could write about.moreless
  • In this episode Ed decides to kill the homoculus's master and Mustang plans to eliminate the Fuhrer.

    I really enjoyed this episode. Now that Al has been taken by Envy Ed has to make a choice. He meets back with Izumi and together they look for for answers back a Dante's house. Eventually they get in a fight with Archer over the Tringham brothers. The ending was the best as Ed finally says goodbye to Mustang after a long car ride and a great discussion. This episode really gets you pumped for the last three. Its all starting to come to a close and its getting really good now. This episode makes you ponder how its all gonna end. This is a great episode, see this one for yourself you'll probably love it. A memorable episode toward the end of a great series.moreless

    Goodbye is a great episode. I like Izumi because no madder how much anger she may show at Ed and Al she still loves them as if they where her own children. Did Wrath ever consider Izumi as his real mother? Anyways I think it's Goodbye I haven't seen it in a while but Ed and Izumi attack centreal headquarters and Izumi yells at Ed for not checking if Pride was there. I was craking up when I saw that.moreless

    i love this episode... i like the way they make the characters like true people with true feelings and weaknesses.. i mean some of the anime protagonists out there looks invincible, not ed and roy even, i mean this episode shows there drive to revenge hughes. i like the way that they show each characters weakness wich make them more realistic you know? i cant belive that im couting down to the end of the fullmetal alchemist... i cant belive it,its one of the best anime ever... i just dont get why the episode title is goodbye... does it mean they are never gonna see each other again?

    p.s. wrath is funny he is a deluded little kid who claims stuff that isnt his and a cry baby to boot!moreless

    Truly a stellar episode: From Ed waxing philosphical about his seemingly cold heart towards killing sloth,to Mustang's plan to deceive and attack Pride,to Izumi's recognition of Al finally becoming a man. The progression of this series towards its final episode is making one the best all time anime series i've ever seen. The character development is so strong that even a few words between Mustang and Hawkeye after he flirts with the nurse shows how deeply she cares for him,and how oblivious he is of it.

    The episode kept well in line with its title,as well,as we get to see many goodbyes: Al & Ed finally put their mother's death to rest,Izumi says good bye to her student,embracing him somewhat as an equal,Mustang possibly ending his career,as well as the metaphorical goodbye in Shou Tucker losing the last bit of his sanity. The end credits,however, provide the most bittersweet of them all; an old photograph of Mustang's group relaxing,panned left to right,ending with Maes Hughes beating Havoc et al in a card game.moreless
