Izumi sends the Elrics to meet her teacher, Dante, who also knew their father. Upon arrival, there is little time for idle chat -- Envy, Sloth, and Greed have all entered the vicinity.

Episode Notes

  • The title of this episode may be a reference to opening lines of the first book in The Divine Comedy series, Dante's Inferno.
  • Wrath's relief and warm emotions in being rescued by his mother's embrace is a prime example of a Homunculus's conflicted psyche; the state of being torn between the dual identities of the person they were meant to be and the individuals that they are themselves. (See: here for more information.) It is also the first indication that Wrath's love for his mother still resonates deeply inside of him, beneath even all of the hatred, rage and bitterness.
  • The Elric brothers' difficulty on talking to each other about how homunculi are born hints that they have begun to suspect who was born as a result of their own transgression with Human Transmutation. This subject is brought up again during Episode 41.
