  • In this episode Ed finally learns the truth about Scar and what happened to him years ago.

    9.2
    This was a very good episode in the way it told of Scar's past. As Ed reaches Liore he meets up with Scar and Ed tells him not to do what he wants in his plans. Scar then opens up to Ed all of the horrible memories from his past and how he will create the Stone. Its a very memorable episode and one that really proves to be great.
  • A lot is revealed about different characters in this ep, including Scar, Fuhrer King Bradley and Rose. And there's a lot of different emotions in this; that's what makes it one of the best. ***Caution: Spoilers***moreless

    I found this one really good, but it was also powerful in plot as well as powerfully sad.

    We finally get to find out the truth about Scar, as well as how Lust was created. The fight between Ed and Scar is pretty good because Ed kept changing the composition of his automail arm so Scar wouldn't know what it's components were. And for some reason, I love when Gluttony says, "I hate you, I hate you for hurting my Lust." There's also plenty of sadness in this one. It was kind of shocking really because I haven't seen this one in a while. It's revealed that after the miltary invaded Lior to calm down the civil war, Rose was kidnapped and raped. As a result, she not only has a baby, but she's gone mute. And the look Ed's eyes get when he hears the truth, it nearly kills me.

    The other sad thing is that Al's friend Martel gets killed while hiding inside him and he's drenched in her blood. Not a pretty picture and that's sad.

    And to took it all, the Fuhrer is actually a Homonculus: Pride to be exact.moreless
  • Scar's past and future. A really good episode where much is revealed.

    I am really glad we get to hear more of Scar this episode. I knew we would after last episode but I cannot believe that Al is actually listening and has not killed him yet. But scar has a good reason and really he isn't doing anything bad. I cannot believe that the General dude killed someone inside of Ed then started talking to Ed in a tone that was too calm for comfort. It was very creepy. In this episode, we also learn more about the Philosipher stone and how it is created and maybe a way for Ed and Al toget their hands on one. But it comes with a price. Scar must get human souls to create it. I really liked this eppy. This is a realy revealing episode.moreless
  • Did anyone else notice that Scar\\\'s Brother calls him by his real name? \\\"Al\\\"...

    9.3
    In the scene where Scar is tending to his older brother who just gave his arm to Scar, he is dying and calls Scar \\\"Al\\\". I wonder if this has anything to do with anything in the plot, like Scar\\\'s relationship with Alphonse, or if it was just a careless mistake. At first I wasn\\\'t sure if I just heard it, but I\\\'ve seen the episode a few more times now, and I am sure that Scar\\\'s name is \\\"Al\\\". This is pretty cool because in a later episode, Lust asks Scar his name, and Scar tells her that his Holy name is gone because that person is dead... crazy.moreless
  • Ed and Al make it back to Lior.

    9.4
    As Edward and Alphonse make it back to Lior, they run into Scar. After a short lived battle with Scar [Ed fought him], Lust and Gluttony interupt. Lust is weakened and Gluttony get\'s p!$$ed that they \'hurt his Lust!\' The Homunculi escape and Rose, along with Dante\'s maid return. Scar explains to Ed how he got the scar and his brothers arm. Meanwhile, back at headquaters, Marta battles Kimbley. After Al saves her from being charcoal, she attacks the Fuhrer. King Bradley\'s eye patch is lost, revealing that he is an Homunculi [Pride]! Marta escapes him a nd jumps back inside Al. Pride walks up and asks Al to turn around and face him. Al does this and Pride, using a sword he had, stabs Al between the chin and chest plate. The weapon instantly kills Marta and the Episode ends with Al on the ground crying as Marta\'s blood drips from inside him.moreless
