Ed mopes about the horrible discovery, while Al feels optimistic that they made a mistake, and should keep on researching
the Stone. Ed gets all pissy, hurling a cup at Al. Poor Al! Ross barges in and lectures Ed on how he shouldn't give up. So
Ed doesn't. After looking at a map, with Marco's little nore saying "secret behind the secret," Ed realizes they should check
out the old "abandoned" 5th laboratory, which happens to be next door to a prison, full of throw-away lives.
Scar is makes a move on the Elrics at this point, only to find they have snuck out of their lodgings. He uses his arm
in an unexplained way to "read" the coded notes of Marco, and instantly understands them (What-Ever!).
Back at the "abandoned" lab, Ed and Al have snuck in, gone their seperate ways, only to each be attacked by armored guys.
In this episode we learn:
-Hughes's daughter's image has the ability to restore the life-force of other people
-Scar has an unnatural urge to kill Ed above other National Alchemists, perhaps because Lust and company want Ed to do
something for them
-Ed finds it useful to be as short as he is... and hates himself for seeing it!
-Al didn't mean to be so tall!
