As they say, birds of the same feather flock together.
After the Envy drama last episode, Ed, Mustang, Riza and Scar continue to walk underground but they are LOST. Mustang and Ed blamed each other but Riza used this opportunity to thank Scar for helping save the Colonel. Scarr said that it's not worth mentioning.
Bucaneer takes over the control room of the Central HQ and they announced over the radio that they have taken over Brigadier General Clemin as hostage. This is a warning to the remaining Central soldiers who are fighting against the Briggs Solidiers or Mustang's forces.Checking the situation of the Armstrong siblings, they are busy fighting the immortal army on their area. Olivier gets word of the announcement of Buccanner and phones him to lock Central HQ to prevent the immortal zombies from going out. She also gave the order to hunt down the zombies.
Sloth recovers from being impaled and again uses his speed to attack Olivier and Alex. Soldiers try their best to slow down Sloth by using the shackles and chains and have the siblings escape. Hating to have any other escaping situation, Alex is determined to finish Sloth head on. Sloth finally escapes from the chains and charges at the armstrong then suddenly somebody came.
Izumi Curtis walks in the room after blowing up a couple of the zombies. She came after Bucanneer requested her to help Olivier. Sloth recovers and reaches for Izumi but Izumi simply tossed him to Sig who then sends Sloth to the wall.
It seems a bond is made with Alex and Sig, both who are gifted with huge body and they both double-teamed Sloth and finally impaling him with a spike. Sloth tries to stand but too bad for him, his stone is already worn out. He dissolves into nothingness and dies.
With everything seems to be over, Izumi introduces herself to Olivier. After a small time to rest, Alex and Olivier plans to continue fighting the mannequins so that they can show to the younger generations how the adults live their life. Izumi and Sig agreed to help but Izumi warns them that she is one of the sacrifices and she has to run away before being caught by Father.
In Father's lair, Hoenheim arrives and faces off with him. Hoenheim asked Father why he removed his emotions and made them homonculi and even made them call him as Father. Father states that he wants to be a perfect being, but Hoenhei thinks otherwise. He wants to have family and that seems to be the truth as judged by Father's face.
Father and Hoenheim fight each other using alchemy. Hoenheim manages to run away from every attack. Father suddenly disappears to the ground and then reappears behind Hoenheim. He tries to get Hoenheim's stone but for whatever reason he cannot. Father is shocked what went wrong and to this, Hoenheim answered that they will not be beaten so easily.
Back in central HQ, the Briggs forces were able to take control of the fortress. While fighting the mannequins, Izumi saw a high ranking official running away from a bunch of immortal army. She saved hint then punches him on the stomach. She demands to be informed about the Man this person is talking about.
Buccaneer and the Briggs soldiers are rejoicing for taking over the fortress. They guarded the gate with thier tanks. Suddenly, King Bradley appears ready to fight.
