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.

Extra: Do not discuss the new Op/Ed here. Please keep discussion to the relevant thread, i.e Fma: Brotherhood O S T-1, O S T-2, O P & E D Theme Musics Discussions for the music and the Op Theme Video Discussion and Ed theme video discussion for visuals and meaning.

@Ant: "Everything else into 3 episodes?" Don't you mean, like, everything else in 12 episodes?

-The OP is amazing. Like someone else said, I'm not much for slow OPs, mostly because maybe the animators don't do it right, but in this case, it was amazing. This has got to be one of my favorite OPs for sure.
-I think that general guy was stupid. If you're gonna have a guy do your dirty work, at least listen to him.
-The zombies piling on him made me lol. I actually thought it would be more... gory- but hey, what can you expect. It is FMA after all.
-Now when the zombie bit his foot, I lol'd like crazy.
-I felt bad for the poor scientist guy. He could've been like Marcoh- dragged against his will- for all we know.
-Ed's face looked weird... granted it was while opening the door and comedy and whatever... but it just looked funny.
-High-five Olivier! But that guy had some serious balls, saying what he did. But I think it went too slow. Olivier could've sliced his tongue off and the rate he was talking.
- Oh hai, Sloth. "So annoying" Yes, Sloth, I know you're annoying.
-Zombie-fight was cool... but most of them were just standing around doing nothing. It could've been a billion times more chaotic, but there has to be some kind of peace for Ed to think and use deductive reasoning, right?
- I wish I was a random civilian living in Amestris right now. Sounds like fun.
- Slow-mo zombie rush looked retarded.
- "A BEAR WITH A MOHAWK!!!!" biggrin.gif
- I thought Ross was Mustang for a sec. Roy does look a bit baby-faced though. But I appreciate the effort, BONES.
- Selim is such a smart little boy bad-arse homunculus. Wait, he turned into a kid again. Nice vocals.
- The announcer guy made me WTFLOL.
- I am not a Mei fan, but this part was awesome. Lolz, at Envy in the jar. But Mei totally delivered seriously when she quick-sparred those zombies. That was awesome. Leftover Easter chocolates to the animators!
- That zombie ate Envy and glass- which actually grossed me out the most.
-Wait... Envy just went CoS Gluttony on those other zombies- I agree. But it was so awesome. Whoever did this scene is amazing. Nice music to go with it too. Put the terror together... Oh... more terror. Because Envy evil-laughed.
- Al just sits there as his head is thrown at him. How productive.
- Go Olivier! ... Wait, why are you shooting him?
- I lol'd at Alex's entrance. It was amazing. And whoever subbed it did hilarious... unless the VAs were able to voice-act it that way. "SISTA~! ARE YOU AWRITE?!" indeed. Aahahaha.
- Kimblee and Pride... what are you waiting for? Get him! It's like everyone's being lazy this ep except for a few good characters.
-Heinkel, you're such a good chimera.
-Pride's WTF face followed by the quick transition to his scowl also made me lol.
-Loved the "superb" line delivered by Kimblee.
-ED... not great, but not awesome. I'm just an anti-still person altogether...

Alright ep. Great in some places... lacking in others. Can't wait for the next one.

I wondered why he didn't just bolt for the door while that officer was getting eaten. I guess everybody in this episode preferred to stand around!

"Guys, maybe we should do something now, before our threat level falls below the Putty Patrol's!"

Slow-mo zombie rush looked retarded.

I liked the way the shot was framed, but it was ruined by the characters not being drawn well enough. Come on animators, they're not THAT far away! Add some detail!

I am not a Mei fan, but this part was awesome. Lolz, at Envy in the jar.

I had to laugh at May's ability to run with the jar balanced on her head, even though I had already seen it in the preview.
