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.

I thought this episode was brilliant- one of the best yet!
The interaction between Roy and Riza was great. I loved the facial expressions; especially when Roy looked so pained over his memories and the decision to back down. The scream/yell when he finally gave up and let off one last flame was a really nice touch and it actually bought a tear to my eye because it sounded so defeated and pained.
The part that made me want to cry the most, though --and I'm surprising myself by saying this-- was the part with Envy. I can't stand him yet his tears made me feel so sorry for him. It was actually quite heart-wrenching with all the crying and screaming; he seemed so desperate.
I loved the music too! Although one slight thing that irritates me about it is the fact that a lot of the time they play the same track, but it's played with different instruments/different tempo etc. I wish they would come up with more that's completely new. Having said that, it still sounded great! : )
