Do you look at the insects on the ground and consider them "fools"?
Ed and Al come face to face with the "father" of the homunculi, who just so happens to be a dead ringer for their own father, Van Hohenheim--a resemblance too uncanny for coincidence. And later, when the allure of immortality proves to be too much for Prince Lin of Xin, he lets Greed take over...literally!
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
In this installment, we come face to face with the leader of the homunculi, and what a surprise! I was so sure, for the longest time, that it was their father behind it all. However, not that we know it is not, I am dying to know who is and what their father is up to. Because he is up to something.
We also see the demise (or evolution?) of Lin, when he agrees to take on the philosopher's stone into his body and become Greed. Ed believes he is still in there, somewhere, but will he be able to overcome the homunculi living inside him?
It seems that we also find Ed, Al and Mustang in a very uncomfortable situation, when they confront King Bradley of his humonculi origins. They seem to reach a stalemate, though, as he does not want them to interfere with the affairs of the humonculi, or people that Ed and Al love will be hurt in return.
Overall, I am really looking for answers to come in the next few books!
