Greed is tormented by the images of his former Comrades and demands explanation from Wrath as to why he appears in these flashbacks. A fight ensues until Greed escapes through a window.

Meanwhile, at Armstrong Manor, Olivier demands her Father retire so that she may inherit the estate herself. Her Father informs her he intends to leave the house to Alex. When Alex enters, their Father tells them they are to fight and he will yield the house to the winner. As they battle, their Father, Mother and sister Katherine leave for their vacation, choosing to visit Xing. Olivier wins the fight, and when Alex challenges about her Military involvement it is revealed she sent the family away for their own safety.

At Youswell we see Mei walking through the streets, still carrying Envy in his glass jar. After bumping in to some locals she informs them she wishes to return home to Xing. They offer to provide supplies for her journey and a place to rest for the night. Overwhelmed by their kindness she cries. Envy persuades her the better thing to do would be to go back to Central. Through his thoughts we find out Envy plans to find a Stone and return to his previous form.

Ed, Darius and Heinkel arrive at an old hideout. A figure collapses in the doorway, and after complaining of hunger Ed realises it's Ling. He informs Ed that Greed has seperated from the other Homunculus and in a brief moment of panic, Ling was able to regain control of his body. He also tells Ed that Father will open the Gate on the Promised Day and that this may be the opportunity for Ed and Al to get their bodies back. After finding out that Ran-Fan is safe, Greed is able to retake control from Ling. Ed asks Greed if he would like to join forces with them. He agrees, as long as Ed agrees to work for him.

In Briggs, Sig and Izumi are informed of the Promised Day. After getting herself arrested, Izumi passes the information on to Major Miles. The information is then passed on to General Gruman. Gruman informs Rebecca who thus passes on the information to Hawkeye via a note stuffed into Black Hayate's collar. She passes these details on to Havoc who it turn gives the note to Mustang, who burns it after reading it.

Thanks God, I'm not the only one who thought that Ed was drawn strangely in this episode o_O
He actually looked more like young!Hoho than Ed... I know he's his son, but they doesn't look exactly the same D: look at this. For me he seriously does look more like young!Hoho after changing hairstyle than, for example, this Ed in the ending XD I hope he'll come back to his usual look, because, well... he just doesn't look like Ed for me (but the truth is that I care about details too much haha) +___+
But, aside of that, the episode was awesome. Loved the animation, especially in Greeling vs. Bradley fight. Only scene with May felt a little forced since they cut out both actions that took place in Youswell (the one in the start and later May rescuing Kyle's father).
