Summary: The officer who activates the homunculi dolls is eaten by them, and they turn o the scientist that was with him next. Edward, Scar, and the chimera arrive at the doorway near where Barry died. Ed tries to open it, to no avail. Suddenly it opens and the homunculi dolls pour in. Olivier takes a general hostage, but he orders his subordinates to shut the gates so that Mustang's and the Briggs forces can't get in. Sloth attacks, but Olivier moves out of the way and the general is crushed instead. Edward's group tries to fight off the dolls, but they don't have any luck. Edward suddenly realizes what they are. He shuts the exit to the room so they can prevent them from escaping. Back at the mound, Heinkel realizes that Pride has been sending out morse code signal, but it's too late. Kimbley attacks, breaking the mound, which releases Pride. Underground, Mei runs from the dolls, balancing the jar with Envy on her head, but Envy is swallowed by one of the dolls and takes control of it. Devouring the other dolls, Envy returns to his original form. Olivier tries to fight Sloth, but isn't damaging him. When she is about to be crushed, her brother Alex arrives to assist her. Alphonse tries to help Heinkel and escape from Pride and Kimbley, who shows him the Philosopher's Stone he saved from the mine. Alphonse uses it to challenge Kimbley and Pride, to Kimbley's amusement.. - Penguintruth, used with permission.

Thank you so much Omni! I'm so relieved that FMA will still be blogged. =D I love the new layout by the way!

(I'm being really lazy here as i just copied what i wrote down in another forum. >.<)

Oh god. What an amazing episode!! I'm still in awe! The animation was pure eye candy! 8D

Firstly, I love the new OP and ED! I'm not usually a fan of slow openings and endings but not this time. The more i watch it, the more i like it. Such amazing animation and songs. It's so beautiful...The opening has such sadness but Ed smiling at the end makes it feel bittersweet as a whole. The ending is uplifting and hopeful with Ed's determined stare and Al's smile.
It's really suiting...It made me tear up and reflect back on the series. That FMA is really going to end. I absolutley love how at the beginning of the opening it shows Ed and Al then pans across to show the rest of the cast. The shot of Greed was incredible along with the shot of Mustang. I can't believe FMA will be over in a few months...=(

Anyway, onto the episode! 8D

-Those zombies give me chills. Seeing them eat that general guy was disturbing.
-Oh Ed...opening the door. Lol! XD
-The smooth criminal is back! Hello Kimblee. My god..he makes an entrance
-Poor Heinkel. T___T
-Mei's fight with those Zombies was effin' awesome.
-Envy's revival was so sickening. I like it! 8D Though i don't remember him being eaten by those zombies in the manga when he was midget. 0.0
-Olivia never ceases to amaze me. Gah...=w=
-Alex's entrance made me laugh! <33
-Al...oh god...Al! Gah...Epic personified in a suit of armour. Love him!! This was my favorite scene in the entire episode. Al helping Heinkel without his legs was such an intense and moving moment. The music, the voice acting and the animation were all perfect. Al was so gar stepping out of the smoke looking so determined with the "Ray of light" playing. It was beautiful!!

The best thing is we haven't seen nothing yet!! I'm really looking forward to the final chapters being animated. Waiting weekly is just so hard now. XD

Oh! I forgot to add, the eyecatch guy sounded like a little girl for the first eyecatch. No...just no. XD That's wrong. Your a guy, you don't laugh like a girl....*shudders* Glad to get that out of my system. XD

The EdWin fan in me just about died for joy at the last shots of the OP! biggrin.gif

I also just now LOLed at the screencap of first eyecatch. "See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil"!!! XD It seems that Bones can't quite take the crazy zombies 100% seriously either. happy.gif

I can't believe we're getting so close to the end... I'm not one to cry over just about anything (I can count the times I have in the last decade on one hand, I think), but this series has meant so much to me, I really think I might shed more than one tear over the next couple months, between the manga and Brotherhood... *sigh*
