The ending is good in a way. It opens up the opening for the movie. And it wasn't so bad. Instead of either Ed and Al dying, they are seperated. I expected one of them to at least die to give a good feel. But oh well. The seperation works too. Because it may not be possible for Ed to go through the gate again. Therefore, never seeing Al, Winry, the old woman, the stupid military guys and gal, etc.
But it's bad because it feels rushed. Really rushed. Bones could've afforded to at least stretch everything to one more episode...Then maybe everything wouldn't feel so cramped.
Hey, is that old guy from East HQ the new Fuhrer? It looked like it. Or maybe I just heard Scheiska's narration wrong.
Archer was useless from 42 on. He should've just died instead of lost part of his face and body. And I hate him because

What was Hohenheim doing? That guy he was talking to looks like Hitler to me...@_@. That place reminds of some secret society like stonehenge...
Al doesn't rememeber about his armor days. Hohenheim said something about this once. In episode 44. He said that if Al was to retrieve what he lost, he would have to give up what he gained. Al gained about five or six years of memories. He had to give up those memories in order for the gate to return his body. And Ed's arm and leg, of course.
I don't think Armstrong and Roy would be executed for treason...First, you'd have to beat up Armstrong. Second, you'd have to get past Hawkeye and her sniper skills. Third...Maybe that old East HQ general is the new Fuhrer. I don't think he'd prosecute either of them. And if he's not...well, we'll find out in like a year. Or even better. Just use your imagination.
Of all people to be narrating the end, it's Scheiska...Pretty cool, though. She has nice role to accompany her many piles of books. The ending was kind of fun with Al narrating. Just wish I knew what he was saying. Where are Roy and Riza? I know it's a market but where? And the military people...I never thought I'd see the day when Breda or anyone would willingly imitate Armstrong
