Episode 49:
Envy taunts Al with all the lives sealed in his Stone body. Al regrets being alive, as well as suspecting his father for...
Yak yak yak, flashbacks with the Faker brothers at the Church ruins. Hmm, the candles in this "abandoned" Church are lit, so it must not be as abandoned as once thought. Ed goes underground alone. He finds an entire empty city underneath Central. According to father Faker, the underground city dates back to about 400 years ago. Ed thinks his father caused the mess.
Archer is on a power-high from his automail. Izumi loses strentgh quickly during her fight. Ross and company rush in at the last moment, scaring away Archer and his group.
Winry and Scieszka wonder some more back in Rizenbul. Are the homunculi being helpful by keeping people away from the Stone?
Rose takes Ed for a spin across a dance floor. Lila interrupts, trying to make Ed feel guilty for abandoning Rose. Ed doesn't fall for Lila's lies. He flushes out Dante/Lila's plans. Crappy, spinny animation provides the background for the Ed vs. Dante speech showdown. Dante had hoped to become Rose so that she could claim Ed as her boyfriend (since if she can't have Hoenheim, why not little Hoenheim?), but banishes Ed to the realm of the Gate. Ed, looking suspiciously like Al would if human, meets up with his father in a London experiencing a zeppelin air raid??? WTF?
In this episode we learn:
-Gluttony is hungry and Dante/Lila won't let him eat Rose. He's also lonely without Lust. Awww!
-Wrath is still whining about his mommy, Sloth
-Envy is very dedicated to Dante
-Dante poo-poos the Law of Conservation.
