    Tsk, tsk. Didn't anyone ever tell Russell that it's rude to steal other people's identities? I've got a solution for Ed and Al! To quote my favorite commercial, "F-R-E-E that spells Free Credit Report.com, baby!" :P Anyway, Ed picked up a tip from a theif named Psyren in Aquroya to go to the town of Xenotime. So he and Al go there, and are thrown out of the hotel because they claim to be the Elric brothers, which they are. The owners of the hotel tell them that the Elric brothers are working on some kind of experiment up on the hill. So of course, Ed drags Al along to investigate. They uncover two boys that are posing as the brothers. There's Russell, who is supposed to be Ed, only much taller, and Fletcher, who is Al, only human and much shorter. I don't want to spoil all of this for you because I can't remember where the episode ends. So I'll try and wrap it up and finish everthing else in the review for the next episode. Anyway, Ed and Russell get into a scrap, Fletcher and Al end up being friends behind their brothers' backs, and blah, blah, blah, to be continued.moreless
  • Ed and Al arrive in Xenomtie, but discover a strange red water is infecting babies, and two boys are impersonating them.

    Although not one of my favourite episodes, and another filler, this one has its moments. I like the banter between Ed and Russell Tringham, and it just goes to show how identical the four are like eachother. Ed and Al arrive in Xenomtime but discover two boys are impersonating them. However, there are deadlier cases at work when Lust manipulates the town baron Mugear (the guy whose name is hard to pronouce and spell) into using red water to develop fake Philosopher's Stones. Although this episode is a filler, it is still a continuation of the series, further hinting at the plan's of the Homunculi - but where was Gluttony? He is always with Lust mostly?moreless

  • This is a very funny episode. Ed finds out that he has a twin...with silver eyes. The Tringham brothers are trying to go for what their father did. Try to make the Philosopher Stone. How kind. Mr. Mugear finds out anyway, so their plan is destroyed.moreless

    Nash, Russell and Fletcher's father first created the "Red Water" a type of liquid needed to make the Philosopher's Stone. He would have continued with it, but Mr, Mugear told him to poison everyone with the very red water he had made. He had said no so Mr. Mugear had killed him. His sons had walked into his footsteps by making a Trial Stone, a prototype of the Philosopher's Stone. It gave Russell enumerous power and enough wit to actually defeat Ed. But, Ed destroyed the Trial Stone and restored peace in Xenotime once again.moreless
