Episode Notes

  • The Transmutation Circles that appear in the background of this episode's title card are Isaac McDougal's water transmutation circle and a basic circle.
  • Isaac the Freezer does not appear in the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime or the manga as he is a character exclusive to the 2009 anime. As such, the content of this episode is based loosely on the events of the manga and does not take place within the manga's continuity.
  • Alphonse first mentions his list of things to eat and remarks that he will add Gracia Hughes' delicious quiche to it.
  • In this episode, it is shown that Lt. Riza Hawkeye carries a small briefcase full of spare ignition cloth gloves for Colonel Mustang to use. However, this briefcase is not part of the manga continuity and never appears again.
  • When McDougal staggers into the alley where he finds Führer Bradley, at first, the color scheme continues into the alleyway, although being affected by shadowing. However, a few steps in, the entire color scheme shifts into a black and white scheme with shades of grey. The only distinct color that shows is the red that emerges from any Philosopher's stone-- for example, McDougal drawing his blood into an ice spear, the glow around his body because of the power he is using for his attempted attack, and also a faint glow over Bradley. But McDougal's blood is shaded grey, to indicate that it isn't just that color being accentuated.  Later, when Ed and Al reach the alleyway, a normal color scheme has returned.  While this could be due to the numbers of investigating MPs and their spotlights, it may have been that when McDougal entered the alley, Pride also joined the battle, and was prepared to (and may have even actually given) aid to Wrath in the fight.
