Omni's Post. Summary
Citizens around Amestris tune into Radio Capital, a station in Central where several Mustang's subordinates are at as the Fuhrer's wife is being interviewed about the attempt on her life. Mustang's group uses this to gain support of their countrymen, who believe that a coup has been started to overthrow Bradley and Mustang and his group are defending the status quo. Hearing Maria Ross on the program, Denny Brosh realizes that she's still alive. The Central command officers are surprised to see tanks attacking HQ. Meanwhile, underground, Roy and Riza arrive to help Ed's group and Roy easily dispatches several homunculi zombies with his flames. Mei and Envy, the latter chasing the former, end up in the same room, where Envy sees the unlikely partnership between State Alchemists and Scar and comments on it. Roy demands to know who killed Maes Hughes and Envy eventually admits to it, showing him how he transformed into Hughes' wife to catch him off guard. Roy tells Ed, Scar, and the others to go ahead, as he will handle Envy on his own. Roy easily injures Envy repeatedly using his flame alchemy, even when Envy transforms into his larger form. Envy slips away and tries disguising himself as Hughes, but Roy doesn't fall for it. Having been separated during the fight, Roy and Riza reunite, but Riza points her gun at Roy.

Hmm, episode was really good in terms of art and animation and I wasn't "disappointed" but I have one complaint.
Just like I thought from reading the summaries, the battle is split over two eps which kind of takes away from the "epicness" of the scenes since if it was all in one completely action packed episode it would've been the most dramatic (aka all of chapter 94 in one ep). Also they didn't play a new track or in fact any recent new tracks during the fight scenes, which was a missed opportunity for me. Anyway the art was still fantastic though and the animation at the end was great. I just wish they hadn't decided to end the episode there, but I knew it was coming when 54's summary still talked about Roy and Riza "overcoming traps". I can't believe people like Penguintruth have a problem with this section of the manga, it makes so much sense to me it's unreal. There was nothing contrived about Envy coming back (the homonculus are powered by Philosopher's stones, there are tons of stones in central, all he needed was more and May is a naive little girl), Mustang had been set up throughout the ENTIRE SERIES to be his opponent ("Did you kill Maes Hughes" was asked at least 3 times prior to this fight) and it also serves as the perfect set up for Mustang to have (manga spoiler) One last chance to fight before the events that happen to him in the near future. Who else would his opponent have been for an end of series battle? Wrath? Scar or Greedling certainly made more sense for that fight. Pride? That just seems like a weird matchup.
