Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 5.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 54 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 54 episodes.
Please don't ask for links on where to watch this episode, raw or subbed. Discussions on 'where to watch' belong in Where/How to Watch FMA Series 2. Don't post screencaps unless highlighting something important about the content of the episode. Just like on in most area's of the board, avoid one line posts, spam of any kind or conversations between two members.
I will not tolerate anyone ignoring the rules. I will make these clear and simple;
-Do not spam. -Add spoiler tags to spoilers -Do not go off topic -Do not fight
Spam means one line posts that contain little content. "OMG that ep was so cool" would be an example of spam. If you enjoyed the episode please specify what you enjoyed so much, was there anything you didn't like?
Spoilers mean anything you know will happen in upcoming episodes. Not everybody reads the manga and you may reveal something they didn't know. For future episode discussion, please go to the relevant topic. If you are unsure how to use spoiler tags, please ask.
Going off topic means discussing a characters actions outside of the episode, or talking about the artwork, or upcoming episodes etc. I know this can happen easily so don't be upset if I move your posts or guide you in the right direction. Double check the forum for the right place to take your post.
Everybody can voice their opinion, and nobody is correct just as nobody is incorrect. Because none of you will spam (right?) people will justify why they didn't like something. You are welcome to say "well I like that part because..." but you CAN NOT say "no you are wrong because..."
I don't like to start a thread so negatively but I want to stop these things before they happen. Please ensure this is the only time I have to mention these rules.

Goral, you bring up many valid points, and I respect your opinion. Now, let me see if I can explain this so that you're not QUITE so irritated with the episode.
Consider this: A soldier comes home from war and goes out to have dinner with his family for the first time in years. While they are out, a man starts hitting on his wife, so he takes his steak knife and plunges it into the younge man's chest.
Now, I realize the differences between the scene I just described and one that Roy experienced, bit I am just illustrating a simple point. There's killing for others, and then there's killing for yourself. Now, I don't believe in war, and I don't think any kind of murder is ever really very good. You see, just because someone is a war veteran, that doesn't mean they can go around setting people on fire using the excuse "I've killed before, how is this any different?"
But I do agree with you on some points. I didn't like Scar lecturing Roy, nor did I like Riza being ok with HER killing Envy, (since I always thought she was friends with Hughes too.) But one thing I do understand is why they didn't want Roy to go to downtown crazyville and just kill Envy 'cause he felt like it. Being a veteran doesn't excuse that, so yeah, in my opinion, I think it would change him. Do you get where I'm coming from?
