Summary: Al and Winry are welcomed by Rosé and the people of Liore. Meanwhile, Darius, one of the chimeras who helped Ed after he had been injured, goes to a bank and makes a withdrawal from Ed's State Alchemist research account. However, the military is informed and they storm the clinic where Ed and the chimeras are, though the trio manages to escape from them. Hohenheim tells Al the truth about himself and his involvement with Father. While Olivier is shown the army of artificial humans created by the military, Bido is spotted by Greed. Bido realizes who he is and tries to make him remember his chimera friends, but Greed ends up killing him. Angered at seeing Greed kill one of his friends, Lin's conscience has a vicious clash with Greed's. Later that night, Greed storms King Bradley's mansion and confronts him in front of his wife and Selim. - Provided by Wikipedia
Extra: If anyone wishes to write the summaries for us, I would be most grateful. They just need to be a few scentences long, not too detailed and written with an un-biased view. If you are interested, PM me with an example, for this or a previous episode.

-They cut out the Vintage Armor? Whyy? -Is this new music? Or am I delusional at this point? -I keep hearing "new" music -Interesting way of including Bido with Armstrong and the General -No chimeras, they are underground, right? -Of course, they'd play this track, and I know this one's not new, because I heard it on Adult Swim earlier. -Yup, old music. -I love these doctors. They're funny. I don't think I saw them doing their "thing", though... -He's back! What? No lines from Ed? -Expected place to go to the commercials. -Nice Ed eyecatch. -Vintage Armor can be forgiven. They kept in Chimera Awesomeness. -Boring Al and Hoho chat -A confirmed new track from episode 40. I would have thought they'd play that last episode also. -Woah, intense ending. -Um, okay. They should have just ended there, IMO. Post-ED scene would have done better kicking off the next episode.. -They sure love toying around with music for the previews.
- They left out the “My vintage armor!” joke. I wanted to see that. - Greedling is back. - Ed is back too. He looked good in that white coat. And he got a nice eyecatch too. - The left out another scene: when they stole the car from the rich couple. - Greed’s memories are coming back. The scene with him and Ling was done well. - Keyhole broke, so I missed the end of the episode. But the preview looked nice. - And did I hear new music during this ep? Well, the second soundtrack is coming out soon. Looking forward to the next episode.

My initial thoughts:
- Why does Keyhole have to suck so badly?!? - DAT RADIO - Awww, father and son. - A little fan service for Winry's fans - All right, stop spending so much time with Winry and Rose... unless, of course, they're going to... oh look, Bido! - Greed's back! - I love this bit, where Edward shows up again. Too bad they're using this same music I've heard a billion times. - Ed fangirls will go wild over unbraided, long-haired Edward. - Nice car! - Don't let that Xingese brat talk to you like that, Greed! - Ah, ending where they ended was pretty cool.
A bit of an easy-going episode, but not bad.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;
Edit: My thoughts on the episode... Well, I'm just looking at the screenshots now, and all I can think is, "Winry. Tub. Rubber duck. Heheheh...." I am also very excited that Edward is back, and that he made a 'Full Recovery' I was starting to miss the shrimp. I'm also glad they kept in Ed's "bada$$" car design! XD Looking forward to seeing the raw tomorrow!

I'm just getting so frustrated, this show should've had an hour timeslot so they wouldn't have to keep cutting out content. I love that GreedLing is back, and we're going to get to see more fights with him and Wrath again. I'm liking it.

What I can read from the screenshots, we get boobs! Even the eyecatch gives us boobs!
I felt Heinkel was very badass when pulling out his double set of guns and firing at the MP's in the manga, for some reason I got a totally noir feel from that. I guess his look, with the brown overcoat and glasses contributed to that, they make him look a little detective-ish. In the screenshots though, he looks a little off, and less cool =(
I guess it will be nice having Ed around again. And, finally som Greed. It's been a while.
Hope the subs are up by tomorrow morning, so I can watch it before I go to shcool.

You guess it will be nice having Ed around again? lol Why do you say that? He's the main image in your sig! Anyway, not seen this ep yet and judging by the screenshots it does look awesome. Can't wait for the Ed fan service! I always loved it when he wore his hair down or wore it in a ponytail.

Episode seems nice. Greedling scene looks excellently done and it does appear there's a few new music tracks in the ep, which is very welcome.
Sad to see no animated "Vintage armour" joke though. They've left out all my favourite jokes from the manga in this series (Ed/Ling height comparison, Ed yelling about how he'll mobilize an army to hunt down Mei, vintage armour).
I seriously hope no one who doesn't know about post credits scenes is missing key plot developments because of the fact they've used 2 important scenes after the credits in the last 2 eps!!

Indeed, it seemed to be a heart-warming laid-back episode... Until Ed came in with his blazing glory!!! What is it with Ed, and punching through things and making it look awesome? First the gate now the wall... That whole part had some great action shots in it, and Heinkel and Darius have now joined the cast of beloved recurring characters. Loved the colours for Ed's car. Totally out there, and only cool if you're a seven year-old boy. penguintruth was absolutely correct about the fangirls going wild about Ed's hair. <3 WHEEEE!!! Okay, I'm done. And that eyecatch is going on a wall in my room.
LOL That bank's name was Bank's Bank. Very original.
As for the "laidback" parts, they were very sweet, like with Alphonse going to help with his dad, and Rose talking about Ed changed her life. Not to mention Winry (super-special-awesome-sexy-mostly-naked-scene?) but I really liked her reaction to Rose's story about Ed. If I were her, and I had a crush on him, that'd be my reaction too. (trying really hard not to look absolutely amazed and blush crazily)
Aww, man. They left out the "Don't take stuff out of your crotch," line from Hoehnheim too! I guess it'd be awkward ruining a deep scene like that with crotch humor. It was still funny watching Al do that though.
I don't blame Bido for freaking out with that immortal army. I'd probably have lost my lunch. And then Greedlin appears all handsome and mysterious-like... but there he goes and kills his former friend, and has a mental breakdown. What a guy. Nice place to end it too.
*Party with the new music*
