Episode 39:
Caught and interrogated, Winry and Scieszka leave for Rizenbul.
On their way to Lior, a pissed off Mustang finds out that Archer allowed Kimbley back into the army.
Martyl takes the Elrics to Ishvar, or what's left of it. They believe the false story spread by their government, so Martyl tells them what she knows, since she was around at the time as a military special operative. After the army-instigated war in Ishvar, experiments on the soldiers to become chimeras took place at the 5th lab, guarded over by soul-locked suits of armor.
The Elrics catch Havok and Breda eavesdropping on Martyl's story. They rejoin Mustang and the army, and receive orders to join the suppression of an uprising in Lior. Ed sees that a giant array has been carved into Lior and suspects Scar.
Ed goes to Archer for permission to scout the city of Lior, over Mustang's head. Roy gets pissed off even more. Roy's gang of loyals continue to purposely keep the knowledge of Hughes's death from the Elrics. Archer gets Armstrong to take Ed's watch from him, and gives it to Tucker to put some kind of mysterious whammy jazz on it.
Ed heads to Lior in disguise. He finds Rose is the Holy Mother, and also finds Scar there. Lust and Gluttony also happen to be in Lior, still hidden, on top of an arch... And Martyl finds Kimbley, and goes berserk.
In this episode we learn:
-Scieszka is fixated on her aliens theory
-Havok and Breda are good moles
-Martyl isn't too happy with Hawkeye. Perhaps hunger has something to do with it?
-Archer takes over the role of manipulating bastard from Mustang.
