Episode Notes

  • This episode is adapted from content in Chapter 88: The Understanding Between Father and Son and Chapter 89: Soldiers' Return.
  • Peculiarly, Adult Swim did not air the post-ending segment of when Mustang and his group (including Mrs. Bradley) are surrounded by Central soldiers and presumably executed. Even though it's a continuous habit, they always made sure to include the segments that were vital to the story, but apparently neglected to realize that this cliffhanger is resolved right at the start of the following episode.
