Episode 14:
Ed and Al go in search of Marco, who seems to have exceptional healing powers, which hints at the use of the Philosopher's Stone. As they try to pry secrets out of Marco, Scar has finally made his way to the east, in order to mow down more National Alchemists. Who, oh, who shall be his target this time? Scar is so happy there are so many NA's in one place, he hardly knows where to begin.

Meanwhile, back at Cornello's city, Lust and Gluttony are joined by Envy. Together, they decide that they must protect Edward from Scar. Rebellion rages on in the city. Rose tries to protect children from being killed by the army.

Also, Basque Gran makes an appearance, to talk about how useful the fabricated Philosopher's Stones were during the war, we are shown a flashback to that time where Gran uses a Stone to power up his own alchemy, but soon afterwards that tiny tidbit of info, Gran falls victim to Scar. Goodbye one episode character. Scar chases after Marco, Ed and Al, but is stopped by Armstrong for a while. The three alchemists flee, and Ed returns Marco's Stone to him, so he can keep using it to heal the poor residents of the town.

In this episode we learn:

-Gran *was* the Iron Blooded Alchemist, who could transform his right hand (and with a Stone, his entire body) and shoot ammunition out of himself
-Armstrong is the gallant and sentimental Iron Fisted Alchemist
-Edward... well we know Edward, but not exactly what he is for the evil threesome
-Al still gets mistaken for the Fullmetal Alchemist, but is not actually anything famous. Awww.
