In comparison to the "super-rushed valley" episode, this one felt a lot better. Though it could've improved a lot by adding Mason to it; Idk, I didn't want it to be split into 2 episodes, but the island without Mason just felt a lot poorer. Maybe, they could've left out the Hoho-Trisha flashback to add Mason (please, don't kill me for this), I mean, those flashbacks were supposed to come much later, but I'm not complaining, they were placed perfectly. Mixed feelings apart, I found the episode overall very enjoyable. (Izumi's tatoo is blue? I had no idea!) I'm just worried about what's on the horizon. You're kidding me they're gonna stuff 4 chapters into 1 ep?! I always choose to trust on Bones, but now I can't help to feel nervous. Why on earth would they deliberately speed things up like that? I'm pretty sure they don't have any set number of chapters, so they could take their time. Now I'm confused. =/
- Goodbye, FMA, please help me find the strength to move on and get stronger, too!! ^^ - If I don't answer your reply, it could be because: 1) I'm too busy to turn on my computer. 2) I got shy, and didn't come back to the discussion. 3) I hate you, and I'd rather ignore you. 4) Your point got me speechless, congratz!
