Overall I found this a rather enjoyable and entertaining episode; nothing too deep nor philosophical here, but I still love how we as audience members, get to a see brief glimpse into the destructive nature of the Philosopher´s Stone. For viewers of this series who haven´t read the manga nor seen the first series, I think that the truth behind the stone is always the greatest shock. I am pleased that they kept Ed´s line: "I have already seen hell" in this episode because it conveys so much about what these two brothers have already been through and shall have to continue going through.
I thought that the return to Risembool was handled well, and I found the scene with Ed constantly peering over Winry´s shoulder and pestering her to be quite funny. I loved Paku Romi´s voice acting in that scene! After watching this episode, I have to say that I never really realized how much I like the character of Pinako Rockbell. Although she comes off as an old woman from a small town in the middle of nowhere, she has a strong personality and gruffness to her. Yet, the viewer can also tell that she has a strong love for her own granddaughter and both Ed and Al who she treats as her own grandsons. I do have to say that I was a little bummed that they cut out the brief flash-back to Ed and Al burning down their house, but I suppose that they may leave that until a latter episode.

I think my favorite part in this episode was at the very end when Ed is sleeping with his belly exposed and Pinako overhears Al chiding his elder brother. I love the line spoken by Pinako where she states that Al really is like Ed´s personal protector. I think that just that tiny little line tells so much about Al´s character in the manga. Unlike the previous series, I thoroughly enjoy how Al plays an active role as his brother´s constant protector. I also found it really sweet how Al thanked Pinako for taking both him and his brother in as members of her own family. Winry and Pinako are such important anchors in the lives of Ed and Al because they offer solace and home when none can be found.

Although some scenes from the manga were left out, it did not affect the episode as a whole. I actually felt that the episode flowed quite well from one scene to another.

Some things I didn´t like- I am not sure what to think of that one choral piece that played when Marcoh showed the brothers the incomplete Philosopher´s Stone. I always think "chanting" sounds so corny and over the top. I do have to say that the pieces so far are no where as memorable as the scores from the previous series. Man, I miss "Bratja".

- I also missed Marcoh "defending" himself against Lust.
