I know it's a bit late to be commenting on this episode, but I just wanted to say that I LOVED the bit of Ed-and-Al-brotherly-love fluff they added in, with Ed wanting to join up with his brother on the train but choosing not to so Al would be safer. YAY BROTHER FWUFF!! <33 One of the ways Brotherhood has sort of disappointed me in is the general lack of brother fluff that FMA1 had. So whenever they put a moment like that in, I latch onto it like a life preserver and milk it for all its worth. xD
*sighs* Oh Brotherhood, why did you have to be such a mixed bag? In a perfect world, the emotion, depth, brotherly fluff and smooth storytelling of the first series would be combined with the art, character growth, EdWin fluff and stronger storyline of the second series to make the perfect FMA adaptation. Alas, t'was not meant to be...but hey, at least Brotherhood kicked into gear eventually.
(Ehehe, sorry 'bout that off-topic mini rant. I'll be good now.)
