Episode 5:

Ed and Al continue to Central City. Ed calls Roy on the phone to let Roy know he's almost at Central. Roy urges Ed to hurry onto the train that is currently leaving the station. Turns out that General Hakuro and his family is on the train, and rebels, led by Bard, are going to hijack the train, holding the general ransom for the release of some rebel comrades. Roy doesn't tell Ed this, though. Lots of action in this episode, as well as the introduction of Hawkeye, Hughes and the other kickass agent guy. Action, humor, action, humor, action, Ed crushes Bard's "cheap" Automail left arm with his own top of the line Automail right arm. Ed and Al save the day. Hakuro (and others) owes them a favor and allows them to take the National Alchemists exam, even though they are far too young.
