My initial thoughts:
- Hohenheim = awesome - The Elric house has a bizarre shape - The photograph scene! - Little Ed and Al are so adorable - Hoho fall down, go boom - Don't leave them! Nooooooo. Okay, I know he does, but still. - They sure went through several music tracks in this pre-credit scene - THE EYES! THE EYES! THEEEE EYYYYYES! - Yes, we get it, Alphonse is often mistaken to be the Fullmetal Alchemist. - Ah, Raven. You're such a douche. Can't wait for you to... go... - Oh, Sloth. I feel like you right now. Well, I usually do. - ... into that long goodnight. OH WOW, was that more graphic than in the manga. - Urgh... Winry. So. Friggin'. Annoying. - Roy sure loves whores. - UGA, UGA UGA
Another good episode.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

- Hohenheim's flashback not as good as in manga but second part was powerful, I was on verge of tears when he announced to Trisha he was leaving (OK, might be sleep deprivation...) - don't throw the picture in the fire! *phew* - sh*t, coming darkness was scary! but no new music there T_T - Armstrong stabbing Raven not half bad, pretty good actually. - for some reasen I love Buccaneer passing gloves to Armstrong and her just absent mindedly grabbing them! - Ed's frustration with being locked adorable - evil Kibley is evil, get away from him, Winry - Mustang and flower lady!
Seriously starting to doubt whether there ever will be a new soundtrack and already missing it.

- D'aww, chibi Elric bros! - Why is their house so crooked? (I'll bet Hoho tried to build it without alchemy and failed xD) - I love Olivier's expressions |D - That's a really creepy eyecatch of Raven. He must be taking lessons from Envy. - Stabby stab stab 8D - Winry! Her winter outfit is adorable.
Decent episode overall. I have to say though, I get the feeling next week's episode will be suffering from budget cuts - Winry sure looked weird in that preview.

Aww, I always thought it was beautiful when Hohenheim cried in that flashback. (Real men can cry!) LOL when he fell off the tree. And there's that amazing piece of soundtrack from Ishbal again that I think sounds like a singing ghost! It's one of my fav's for sure. (I'm still waiting patiently for some new pieces though, despite the awesomeness of the 1st soundtrack.)
And yes, I agree with Irena that Raven has been taking lessons in creepy from Envy 'cause that eyecatch gave me the willies! Good riddance really. (Ironically I am writing a bio report on ravens at this very moment O_o) Olivier is just awesomely ruthless, and her hair is very pretty, that's all I can say.
Scar sure got those Brigg's guards good! I wonder what kind of martial arts he used... Maybe it's just me but the lighting in that whole scene was neat. Kind of buttery but still ominous in a way.
Oh, Winry blushed so cutely when she saw Ed! If only she knew the trouble she was causing... D: And I have to wonder if this is Edward's first time in a jail cell...
Roy was looking handsome in his civilian clothes again, going on his "date".
I cross my fingers in hope for the next episode!

Some of the color selections this episode (and the preview) kinda took me by surprise, even if I already saw them before in the manga. Namely Pride's eyes being red and Heinkel's hair being blonde instead of white. I still like them, though, and I think they work.
BGM was okay. The track playing when Olivier kills Raven is definitely one of my favorite. Still hope we'll see some new tracks soon.
Next episode's art: I'm not very knowledgeable about these things, but it looked fine to me. /shrug

I'm glad Hoho's image has been altered. To those who didn't know the manga he came across as unemotional to begin with but now we know the reason he left all is forgiven. I'm with the rest of you, baby Ed and Al are far too cute.
Olivier really is one of the best female anime characters ever for me. I'm glad (unlike Hoho) they kept the comedy faces with her so she didn't come across as a 2-D characters who's just stern all the time.
Ed sounded very feminine for a moment, when he says "wait a moment" or something like that before they tie him up. Not that it's a complaint its just been a while since I heard that pitch.
The Haly-Way point picture of Raven will haunt me, even more than when he's petting Oliviers hands. So glad he gets whats coming to him...
Yay Winry (I know I'm one of the few who care), and even a little snippet of Roy.

I heard that too! It doesn't bother me though; his voice is by a woman anyways. It was actually kinda funny.
Baby Ed and Al made me die a little bit inside... From sheer cuteness!! I couldn't even focus on anything else because I kept going, "Awwwww!! X3" And Hohenheim crying in the picture was also very touching. That whole flashback was one of my favorite parts of the manga, and Brotherhood didn't disappoint me
I loved Olivier in this! I always love her, but this episode was just awesome because of her. Her expressions, while Raven was petting her hands, were priceless! XD When she stabbed him, I cheered for her. She's just so bad-[All hail lord Xenu]! Being buried alive like that would be a very sucky way to die, but Raven was a butthead, so ya.
Ed's frustration at being locked up was also pretty funny (both in this episode and the last one). I think the whole 'behind bars' thing suits him... I like handcuffs on Ed ;D I'm just kidding, of course... kinda...
When I saw Heinkeil, I was also like, "Blond hair, whut??" It doesn't really bother me too much though...
I will have to watch the subs later this week. I'll wait for Funimation to post it, because they tend to be more accurate (I think so anyways). I'm looking forward to next weeks episode. Even though the art looks a bit... ... I think that'll be when Ed goes crazy and recites the elements, while Winry is working on his arm...
Oh, I also noticed (it's probably just me, cuz I'm spethal) Roy, in the last scene, sometimes looked very much like the anime 1 Roy. Of course they're the same character, but the art was yeah... I'll stop. It was just something I noticed.

Good ep. I think I liked the family portrait scene better in the manga, simply because there was more of a shock, turning the page to find this image as opposed to the way it was done in the anime. Just a little nitpick, I guess.
Really loving Olivier's and Kimbley's VAs. Winry looked really adorable toward the end of this ep... Dunno why she looked different to me. I agree that next ep's animation looks a little shaky, but the content should be fun.
