Summary: Using the Philosopher's Stone, Alphonse battles Pride and Kimbley. Kimbley is impressed, but is curious as to why Alphonse hasn't used the stone to retrieve his body. Alphonse claims that the possibility exists to save everyone and regain his body. Kimbley argues that it's possible that neither will occur, and attacks using his own, refined stone. In Central, the Armstrong siblings take on Sloth, who proves to be the fastest of the homunculi. Pride seemingly gains the advantage against Alphonse, but it turns out to be a trap. Heinkel comes from behind Kimbley and bites his neck. Edward, Scar, and the other chimera continue to fight the homunculi army, who try disabling them by taking out their legs. As Pride taunts Alphonse and his group, a car comes out of nowhere and hits him. The car is driven by none other than Yoki, who helps the others escape. Alone with a dying Kimbley, Pride decides to devour him like he did with Gluttony. Back at Central HQ, the troops who corner Olivier are attacked by the homunculi army and she tells them to make a choice between dying or making a stand. Beneath Central, Envy chases Mei. In the room where Ed and the others are, they are beginning to get overwhelmed, but Roy and Riza arrive. Penguintruth, used with permission

-Hmmm animation seems a little off in the first two minutes or so
-The first part of this episode seems like a thesis to why Alphonse is awesome
-Ooooh the "three choices" speech
-Of course Olivier and Alex are being totally awesome this episode
-So you go into a room that has Olivier, Sloth, and Alex in it and the first you notice is Olivier? Real observant Central troops
-WOOT! Go Heinkel! Glad he got an eyecatch
-Why are you looking for an ice cream truck when there's a Flame ALCHEMIST? Central troops, you just fail right now
-Wasn't it Jelso (the toad) who got his neck bitten in the manga instead of Darius?
-The fights are transitioning really well
-Hmmm nice use of "Rain" I think it fit really well with the Armstrong/Sloth fight
-And how exactly did Alex get between Sloth and Olivier in time?
-There is gore lacking in this episode. It all seems a little too clean
-LOL Yoki
-Kimblee getting eaten... It was creepy. Must be the music that was playing
-Isn't grabbing someone's gun going to make them shoot you, Olivier?
-Mei, you're in this episode?
-Ending seemed abrupt

Oooooh... Next week: Envy flamerape. That episode better be animated like top notch Bones, or at least look pretty....

Who cares what our faithful musclemen are doing? Catch the traitor first!

And see, this is why it would have been great if the original Barry the Chopper incident had gone like in the first anime. Then the exchange might have been more like: "It was an ice cream truck, right?" "Yeah, but do you remember the last time someone let a meat truck pass through unchecked? Shoot, that thing's got tiny rectangles all over it! That's way suspicious!"

Um... Maybe superspeed is Alex's superpower too? Hey, he did say you have to be quick to dodge his alchemy.

Next week: Envy flamerape.

You know, this is going to be one of those things, like Pride's secret identity, that will never be a surprise to viewers who discuss the show online due to manga fans who can't stop blabbing about it.
