Episode Summary

EDIT
When Ed and Al discover the source of the strange disease that has stricken Xenotime, they also find out the history behind the Tringham Brother's father and his involvement with the red water. This news does not please Mugear, who had commissioned the Tringham Brothers to make the Philosopher's Stone. He is determined to stop the real Elric Brothers from interfering with his work, and with the red water he may be able to do it.moreless

  • "It's been a good while since I killed anyone. I kinda miss it... Wanna watch?!?" -Ed

    OK, so Ed and Al have met Russell and Fletcher Tringham, the other brothers Elric, hence the title. Um... Russell and Fletcher were working for this Mugear guy who's a real jerk. They had to create this Red Water thing that's similar to the Philosopher's Stone. Well anyway, Russ and Fletch decide they don't want to anymore, so Mugear gets made and throws them and jail and says their father, Nash Tringham, the famous alchemist is dead. Uh... I kinda forget a ton of this episode, but I do know that Ed and Al kick the crap out of Mugear in a totally awesome fight scene, then they go to rescue Russ and Fletch. They succeed, and Russ and Fletch tell Ed and Al that they won't try to be their father anymore. Or something like that. Da end!moreless
  • The Elrics continue to investigate the fake Tringham brothers, discovering a more sinister plot underneath.

    The two-parter concludes with an excellent episode. Action, comedy, drama (particularly when Fletcher falls in the red water) and a funny ending. The only downsider is Lust oddly disappears through the episode. Both sets of brothers learn some valuable lessons about themselves and eachother. Edward is rather scary when he considers killing the Tringams. Mugear demonstrates the power of the fake Philosopher's Stone for evil means unlike Father Cornello, using it as a crazy looking gun. However, he gets his just desserts when the world comes tumbling down on him. The ending is superb, with the revelation that Russell is young than Edward.moreless

    The second part of the episode takes off where we see the truth behind Russel and Fletcher's dad and the red stone. The stone was said to be responible for all the diseases in the town of Xenotime. Russel relizas what he has done, and what he has been doing to everyone. Then Mr Mugear isn't pleased at what is going one, and steals the red stones from Russel and uses it againist Russel and Ed. The two guys work together to defeat Mr. Mugear, when they thought they did. They see an escape hole in the floor along with the red water! Then the red water strats pours through the mansion, and starts to head for the town. Fletcher uses his alchemy to save the town from the water, with the help of trees, and his brother. The red water disappears in the trees, and has no danger to the town. Russel sends him a note in a fruit basket, and says that he was sorry for what he has done, and tries to make up for it. Ed finds out that he was one year younger then him, and he's much taller then him!moreless

    Ed and Al were faced with imposters in the earlier episode. Now Ed is facing the older one and Both Al's don't like it. Ed slips and the fake Al jumps in the way almost killing himself. Someone tries to come in and fake Al seals the door. Ed and Al jump out of a window and run. The older one heals the fake Al. The other 2 get taken hostage and the man that started the expiriment was the one who took them. The man now has a huge gun and is shoting at Ed and Al. The fakes come and save them. This is my masterpeice.moreless

    Russell and Fletcher are the sons of Nash Tringham, a big alchemist who created the Red Water or the Water of Life. He was killed by Mr. Mugear in an act of blind rage toward the alchemist. Not wanting to do Mugear's evil deeds, Nash tried to run and was striked down and murdered in cold blood. Now, his sons are wanting to committ themselves to strive and finish the Red Water and create the Philosopher's Stone before the town of Xenotime falls any further.moreless
