  • This was a special episode. It actually made me cry alittle. Maybe they'll catch the Philosopher's Stone in the end. Maybe things will get back to normal once they turn back. Only two more episodes to go...we shall see.moreless

    I feel so sorry for Gluttony. He misses Lust so much. You have to hand it to Al though in the very beginning. He tried to get away from Envy but being tied up and all, I guess it didn\'t work the way he planned it. I wonder what Ed is going to do being back in the past. He has no alchemy to save himself. Maybe he\'ll make it back to his brother before they use him in any transmutations. I don\'t know the kids name, but Envy shouldn\'t have been so mean to him. And Ryla (Dante) needs to die.moreless

    ok this is when ed finally finds out about dante's true color... how evil she really is. its so obvious that she will only keep the philosophers stone for herself and shes just using the homonculi to do her dirty work! this was the only episode that made me curse so hard when it was over! i shouted at the tv!(this is it? thats the end of the episode!?!?! ****) this episode was so nice but it was cut of at a very very interesting part and im just dying to know what the next episode has instore! cant wait!moreless
  • Wow what an episode. Al ends up ont eh other side of the gate which seems to be WWII England. While he is there he cant perform alchemy.

    This episode was pretty action pacted. I had to watch it twice to catch everything. Because some parts were a little confusing, thats why I did not give this eisode a perfect score. Al performs a transmutation to bring his brother back but he uses his body to do it. So then he gets sent to the other side of the Gate where while there he cant perform alchemy. But he found his dad so that might help him a little. After this season it looks like it will end. That would suck. But you never know they might just pull a sneaky one on us.moreless

    This episode was a really good one. It showed what Lyra plans to do with Rose and what it's like on the other side of the gate. The baby and the transmutation circle confuses me. Would that be counted as human transmutation? Dante's defense against Ed's spear was really cool. One hand! Woah!

    Also, in the prologue, POOR AL!! He was like, "Why do I deserve to live?" Aw...ED! Hurry up and find him! Get him back! Anyway, this was a very good episode and, yet again, Winry and Scheizka have a little scene, a good one. It showed two different opinions about the Philosopher's Stone...and the world.moreless

    • Ed: They were all sacrificed for the Philosopher's Stone... then all evidence of their existence was erased. Using alchemy, the city was pulled underground, leaving nothing behind but a rumor to fuel the curious. Only monsters... could come up with such a plan.
      ...ARE YOU IN HERE, DAD?!

    • Russell: Just come back... Just come back alive!

    • Downed Zeppelin:
      A Zeppelin is shot down in this episode during the sixteen strong bombing raid on London by W. Leefe-Robinson. This was the first night-fighter victory for London in WWI. Only one Zeppelin went down that night, though, and W. Leefe-Robinson received the Victoria Cross.

    • "Sixteen Demons":
      The sixteen "demons" Al refers to clouding the skies on September 2, 1916 was actually the largest Zeppelin bombing raid conducted by the Germans in World War I on London. This raid consisted of twelve Navy airships and four army airships.
