Seems Hoenheim and Lila/Dante successfully created the Philosopher's Stone 400 years ago, sacrificing many lives to do
it. Seems they had a little love affair going on. Seems Hoenheim maintains that Trisha was the only woman he ever loved. Seems
Lust is a little upset that the homunculi had been searching for someone to create a Philosopher's Stone when there were two
people right there who had done it, and that the two had been using the stone for 400 years to prolong their own lives by
transferring their souls to other bodies. Seems Hoenheim had run off with the Stone, leaving Dante in the dust. Oops, his
Tucker's guilt weighs too heavily on him, so he attempts to contact the Elrics.
Mustang returns to Central with his (false) report that the Elrics have headed north to the barbarian tribes. In front
of the military council, he confronts Bradley with errors in Douglas's military records. Mustang's gang pow-wows about why
people want the Stone so badly.
Hoenheim tries to reason with Dante, warning her that their souls are no longer able to sustain the bodies they are in,
due to erosion of the original soul. Dante pulls a dirty trick, bringing out Sloth. She captures him, speechifies how the
Gate is the source of alchemy, and attempts to go beyond the gate, using Rose's baby as a sacrifice in the summoning. Hoenheim
is sucked in by the Gate. The baby is unharmed.
While on the lam, the Elrics seperate for a short while. Ed secretly meets up with Izumi to obtain a piece of her baby's
corpse. Al secretly meets up with Tucker, to learn how to use the Stone.
In this episode we learn:
-Winry invented the oven???
-Many fangirls want to kill Winry about now, just for the pleasure of being the one to braid Ed's hair
-Dante intends to use Rose as her next body
-Ed likes to cosplay as Alucard from Hellsing??
