'Buffy and Angel had gone out before and Buffy wasn't really comfortable talking to Spike and Angel at the same time, because now Spike and Buffy had been going out for 6 months and Buffy was afraid that Angel might tell Spike that him and Buffy went out, but it turns out that Angel had told Spike that they went out, Spike was heartbroken that Buffy never told him that they went out, so Spike broke up with Buffy to get back at her for not telling him that Angel and Buffy went out.'

Hmmm.... As hideous character as Tucker is, he is also clearly mentally ill. Hard not to hate him, but perhaps I shouldn't...

I never hated him to be quite honest...Yes, he's clearly demented for what he did to his own daughter, but in his words when he explains his actions to Edward are just and make a lot of sense...so it's kinda hard to hate a man when he's right...

Tucker is a coldhearted loser that should die. Nina was so adorable and supportive of him, and he turns her into a chimera! He couldn't find anything else to do for his assessment?

I think that was the only thing he felt would get the state to renew his license. Basque Gran pushed him very hard, and he was deranged to begin with. Tucker seems to me to be modelled after psychopaths who often act normally and can commit terrible deeds.

Not that his actions could be defended under any circumstances, but FMA is very brave series indeed to depict such things.

Of course Tucker's role was also to show Ed how low an Alchemist can sink if he or she completely ignores morals and simply pursues science and knowledge regardless of anything else. Tucker's actions were logical (he created a unique scientific experiment, and benefitted himself in the process) but they were also evil.

I always figured somebody on the writing team for FMA had some background in academia. Although not doing anything this evil or drastic, a lot of people become so obsessed with their ideas they destroy their marriages or have a breakdown.
The alchemist renewal thing reminded me a lot of the pressure on college faculty to "publish or perish," basically that unless they continue turning out research which brings money and fame to the university, they're outta work.
I guess when your life, reputation and career are on the line, people can do some very crazy things. Obviously at this point they've lost touch with reality and need to take a step back, but it happens.

As for hating Tucker, I could never bring myself to really do it. I think once he created the chimera out of Nina and Alexander, that whole spell was broken. For the rest of the series his only goal is to get back the person he threw away so easily.
This quest leads him to mutilate his own body and the increasing insanity is evidence of how much this whole thing has weighed on him. I'm not sure I can feel sorry for him, but I think he's suffered plenty.

I hate him! I would never like a guy who sacrificed his own wife and daughter just to keep his title as State Alchemist. He is just too cruel.

I hated Shou Tucker when Edo foudn out that he used his own family for chimera experimentations, but I just felt great pity for him later when he tried to create a perfect chimera that looked like his daughter =/
