Episode NotesEdit

  • This episode is based on content from Chapter 47: A Girl in the Grip of Battles Past and Present and Chapter 48: A Promise Made by Those Who Wait.
  • The symbols that appear in the background of this episode's title card are a Purification Array and a simple Transmutation Circle.
  • In the English dub of this episode, Ed refers to Xiao-Mei as a "panda bear", while in the original story she is mistaken by all Amestrians for a "strange black-and-white cat" due to the complete lack of panda bears in their country. Additionally, characters in subsequent episodes of the dub refer to Xiao-Mei as a cat, this can be seen as a continuity error. However, it's possible that Ed and Alphones know about pandas through research in the dub.
  • A scene is added in the anime where Lan Fan admits to Ed that the trap that he used was effective, referencing that Lan Fan used the same kind of decoy with her severed arm that Ed used on her with his broken automail arm eight episodes earlier.
  • The episode title has three characters that it can refer to: Winry, May, and Lan Fan.
