As the Ishvar are being packed up into a train for transportation to a southern encampment, Ed stalls them a bit to learn
Scar's location, and to find an old Ishvarite who knows about the Philospher's Stone. Though the old man doesn't know much,
he does reveal that Scar is going to attempt to make one in order to have a weapon more powerful than the army, even though
alchemy is forbidden by their religion.
Lots of talking going on today. For example, Winry, Al and Ed discuss the likelyhood of either of the Elrics being able
to kill others. The two Ishvar children tell Winry about their violence-filled past, the hatred of the "exiled" Ishvarites,
their mother and the death of her parents by a flame-weilding alchemist. Riza admits that she has shot many people, but is
willing to do so to protect the one she cares for. The old Ishvar man accuses Ed of being prejudiced against those of different
skin color. The Elrics give evidence for the latest Ishvar uprising being started by the homunculous Lust, clearing the Ishvar
of the charges.
In this episode we learn:
-Winry has probably played too many violent racing games
-Winry finally stops following the Elrics, and learns of Hughes's death
-Ed admits to being willing to carry out extreme violence against others in order to get what he wants
-Viewers wonder where the funny went.
