for the preview page!! ^^Chapter 83 Preview Spoiler Summary!!!! Translated from the summary by a blogger who already read the chapter in Japan, on this Japanese site. ^^ Chapter 83, "Day of Promise" (This is a very very tentative chapter title till I read the real chapter. ^^)
Caption on the side: Reunited with Ed, and he is not Greed, but Ling...
It's Ling who showed up in front of Ed. Ling took control of his body back when Greed was in mental turmoil.
Ling tells Ed that Father will open the Door on the Day that's coming sometime in the near future.
He suggests that if Ed and Al would jump into the gate then they may both get their bodies back.
He wants to continue talking, but Greed is coming back and starting to take over the body.
But, before Greed takes over, Ed learns of "Day of Promise".
Ling is happy to know that his message to RanFan was safely passed on to her.
Then, Greed takes back the control of the body again.
Greed is not fighting Ed. He is simply leaving the scene.
After that attack of Bradley during his mental turmoil, he does not know what happens if he goes back to the Central underground. So, he decides to just go away.
Seeing that, Ed offers Greed to join Ed and the gang.
Although being surprised of Ed's suggestion, Greed is tempted. But, he declines and leaves.
Now being alone, Greed mutters that even with many souls within him, he feels empty.
Ling entices Greed that if Greed gives back the control of the body to Ling, he will become the Emperor of Xing, and fill that emptiness.
Greed tells that it's small being a leader of one country, why not becoming a leader of the whole world....
While they are talking to each other, Ed catches up.
Ed tells that he can't let his emotion run and miss this chance and the vast information. Hence, he would let Greed be the boss if Greed would agree to join them.
Central. At the Armstrong residence.
Olivier is talking with her father. She requests her father to yield the position as the head of the family to her, and retire to the foreign country.
The father tells Olivier that he is intending to pass on the position to Alex.
Alex happens to be there. Olivier and Alex fight over the position.
While they are fighting, the father is busy getting ready for his vacation abroad.
Olivier comes out as an winner of the fight.
Alex questions Olivier why she has joined the group of upper Army officers.
Olivier answers that so that she can see and judge about them herself.
"And, seeing them by yourself is resulting in your suggesting our father to escape to other country for safety?" asks Alex.
Olivier smiles back.
Dublith. At Sig's meat shop.
The military soldiers keep visiting the meat shop in search of Izumi. Mason deals with them and send them back empty handed, then communicates with Sig. He passes on the message from Al and Hohenheim about the "Day of Promise."
Briggs fort. There is Izumi.
Someone attacks the sentry soldier.
Asked who's there, the voice answers, "A wife."
With the report of the attack, Miles and Buccaneer head to the brig where the attacker is being held. Izumi awaits them there, as meeting them was the reason for her attack of the soldier.
She passes on the message from Al about the "Day of Promise," and other information.
Farther on, the information is passed on from Buccanear to Falman, then Falman to General Grumman in the East Headquarters.
General Grumman passes on the information to a Second Lieutenant, Hawkeye's friend, Rebecca.
Second Lieutenant Rebecca goes shopping with her friend, First Lieutenant Hawkeye, and they have a nice friendly chat while shopping.
After shopping with her friend Rebecca, Hawkeye pays a visit to Havoc in the hospital.
Havoc tells Hawkeye that once his body condition becomes stable he intends to move to the military hospital in the East army. Hawkeye gives him cigarettes as a care package.
From behind the curtain in the Havoc's hospital room, Mustang appears.
Havoc tells Mustang that he didn't have to hide behind the curtain. Mustang answers that with eyes on both of them it's better to be cautious and avoid having personal contacts in private setting.
Havoc offers Mustang the cigarettes just given by Hawkeye.
Havoc pulls a cigarette from the package half way so that Mustang can pull out one easily from the package.... the one with the message on the rolling paper.
Thus, Mustang learns about the "Day of Promise."
Thus, after the year turns to the next one and comes next Spring, on that promised Day, the Eastern army will make the move, the Northern army will make the move.....
The day of showdown is approaching.....!!!!
