Summary: Roy Mustang and his group are joined by troops from the East who support them. The higher-ups notice that Roy's group is not killing anybody, only disabling them. In the council room, Olivier mocks the other officials for the weakness of their soldiers. She suggests taking over the Central toops herself, but is told that she's only there to restrain the Briggs troops. She laughs at this, as she is sure if it came to that, her troops would abandon her instead of giving in. Elsewhere, Briggs troops, led by Buccaneer, prepare to go into battle at a location in Central. As Roy's troops run out of ammo, help arrives in the form of an ammo-filled supply truck. Roy finds Maria Ross in the front, and it's revealed the person who put it all together is none other than Jean Havoc. Edward, Hohenheim, Scar, and the chimera (save for Heinkel, who is hurt) head for Central. Mei is in Central with Envy and heads to the underground. Olivier kills one of the generals and injures another. Pride's clanging on Alphonse's head is heard by Father in Central. Edward and the group enter the path to Father via Laboratory 3, where they split up into groups. One of the remaining officers activates the white "immortal army" homunculi, whose screams can be heard by everyone. - © Penguintruth, used with permission.

Epic music for an epic event (Olivier rebelling against the higher-ups). Yeah, she almost owns that track, but nothing can be compared with Lust's blazing fall. thumbsup_anim.gif

Overall a so-so episode. The music was good and well used, but sometimes the drawing was lacking, or there was no animation at all (Maria Ross' reveal was an obvious budget-saving point). But there were very good things, like Ed's trick to enter Lab 5 (except for Scar, he looked funnier in the manga) and Mei's added scene which showed her going through the entrance to Father's lair (I would have liked something like that in the manga, she just seemed to appear way too near the heroes at the critical time). The whole "cordon off the area" was very clever in my opinion. Even some little things were very nice details, like the truck's logo or Hohenheim's voice saying that old men prefer to be alone with young girls. wink.gif
Besides, Olivier saying that those Central "pigs" were about to be freezed up by a lone wacko in the past just made them seem all the more useless. XD

Did anyone of you found funny the immortal army awakening? That scream made me think of a horde of fangirls raging at a concert. The heros' subsequent faces didn't help to take that idea out of my head. ^^U
That calls strongly for a short in an AMV Hell of sorts. *hint*
